I'm thinking of buying some sort of numbing spray for when I use my epilator - does anyone know any good strong products and do they have any lasting side effects such as permanent numbness :p ?

Shaving too difficult? :p

I have very sensitive skin when it comes to shavers, every type - the only thing that works is epilating but that's like YOUCH in sensitive areas.

Can't blame this person :whi:

As you can tell, I don't know the answer. So I'm just wasting your time here.

I'm just worried about repetitive use, I don't want to damage my skin/nerves :o.

Hm, you're right, a freeze spray might be too agressive... :(

Don't think those sprays have any side effects. Hmmm, maybe you could use ice packings or something...:confused:

It doesn't hurt that much though, well, eventually your skin becomes numb by itself and you won't feel a thing. :p

Deal with the pain!!!! :ton:

I don't know what a freeze spray is but if all it does is literally make your skin cold, then I can't see what could be agressive or dangerous about it. :confused:

Well good point, but I didn't mean agressive as in dangerous, I meant it could damage your skin. I am not sure.

You'd be looking for a cream like EMLA. Main drawback is that it takes a while to work - up to an hour.

Thanks for the advice :). I sort of enjoy the pain mostly, but then I get the areas that I just cannot bare.

I'll see how things go anyway XD.

Oooo, that sounds good. I'm guessing you know of this because of your piercings?

O_O I keep finding stuff on google about premature... you get what I mean if you're old enough.
