adventures in waxing

So I'm 23 years old and I've never gotten a wax below my eyebrows. I've heard great stories and bad stories about waxes down there. I was a little wary of paying $60+ for something I've never done and might not even get through (pain!). I decided to buy an at home kit to try out myself. I used Nair Spa Clay Roll-On Wax. That way I could save some money and also cry within the confines of my bedroom with no judgment. I wanted to be as comfortable as possible so I had my laptop propped open watching a Jake Gyllenhaal interview. Southpaw looks so good. Also, I will never see Jake Gyllenhaal the same way again.


Jake telling our engagement story, such a sweetheart that guy.
Pretty sure my dog is saying "I could've told you this wasn't gonna work out."

So there I am in the bedroom. Underwear off, microwaved wax in one hand, strips in the other. I was ready. I placed the strip on the wax, shut my eyes, and pulled. NOTHING HAPPENED. The strips didn't stick to the wax. I tried again 4 times and still nothing. Eventually, I gave up and hopped in the shower. 
I had high hopes for this thing.
Anyways, let me know if there are any waxing methods that work for you. As for me, better luck next time - Kat
