Let’s be clear upfront – removing pubic hair is purely a matter of personal preference

Let’s be clear upfront – removing pubic hair is purely a matter of personal preference. If it rocks your boat – go for it girl! But if you’re a natural-look kinda girl – that’s also ok by us. Our world would be so boring if we were all the same.

Here’s our take on things for you girl groomers out there – we can offer you two hair removal choices, a depilatory lotion or cream or the use of a wax product, strips or hot wax. To try and simplify the choice for you, we’ve drawn up a comparative table. Once you’ve decided which route you want to go, choose the best product for your situation, and take it from there.

For creams and lotions, we recommend the use of our Sensitive variants on intimate areas. Please do a patch test before each use, to determine your skin compatibility. Apply with care but do not apply directly on the genitals, anus or close to mucous membranes. Always make sure you rinse the product off thoroughly so that no traces remain.

Any of our waxes and wax strips can work on intimate areas, except for our sugar wax, which works best on fine hair.  We’d suggest a patch test to determine skin compatibility. Also test the wax temperature before use, to avoid burning your skin. Apply with care but do not apply directly on the genitals, anus or close to mucous membranes. You can remove any wax residue with an oil-based lotion or some baby oil.
