Ally has been getting her face waxed at the salon, by actual hair waxing professionals. But see, I'm
I came into the bathroom after she finished and her lip looked good. A little red, but mainly hairless. So I thought, what the heck- I'm doing me too! I used to wax my face when Dan's mom was an active beautician and she would do it
I warmed the strip in my hands.
I carefully applied to my lip, being careful not to include my actual lip.
I rubbed and waited.
Then I grabbed the end and ripped it off as fast as I could and HOLY HECK the pain was everything I remembered!!!! I was anticipating, since it was a cheap at home kit, that it wouldn't work as well. But it did. I swear to you, had I not already had the other half glued on the other side of my lip, I wouldn't have gone through with it a second time. I would today have half a mustache.
After I dried my tears and stopped mumbling about the pain, I applied the oily clothe thing and in my head wondered what would keep that oil from making tons of pimples in the raw open pores that I just rubbed it in?
And this morning, I discovered that the answer is NOTHING. My lip is swollen up like a crazy nut ball and is loaded with giant mosquito bite looking things! (Ally looks fine- by the way- at least she can have a relatively free from embarrassment day).
You can stop scrolling down- there are no pictures. As if I would do THAT to myself.
Will I do this again? Probably. Being beautiful comes at a cost. But next time, I will not do it with anyone in the bathroom with me. Allyson was laughing so hard, which didn't help my pain at all. No audience and some stridex pads- that is what I'm gonna try next time.
