Nair Spa Clay Roll on Wax. You can get this and the other products online or in any drug store, I've even found it at Giant Eagle. I tried this on my legs once just out of curiosity and I didn't like it there. I found that the hair grew in too many directions for the wax to work efficiently and that there were a lot of stragglers. What I do like this for is the bikini area. Now, I am not a doctor and this product is not recommended for that area so proceed with caution, I am only sharing my experiences. It is definitely important to be careful when working around sensitive areas. Follow the directions on the back and be careful about the temperature of the product when you apply it. Another tip is to cut the strips that come with it to a size that works best for area you are waxing. This product is super easy to use and gives great results. I am left hair free for a week and the growth after that is slow and thin (tmi?) but it does take some time to remove the hair.
Nair Bikini Cream is great also. My main use of it is not what it is intended for either. I have used in around my bikini lines when I was in a pinch and it worked okay, but what I really like to use it for is on my face. I know it seems weird, using a product for down there on your face but it makes total sense I promise. The skin around your bikini area is very sensitive, so is the skin on your face so I have found this product is great to use on the sensitive skin of your face. I personally use it between my eyebrows. Now I don't have a full blow unibrow but I have this blonde peach fuzz type hairs which show up when I apply makeup. I'm sure this would help if you had a little mustache too. The great thing about this is that its cheap, you only need a little and the hair does not grow back appearing thicker. Be careful with this though test it on your skin where it won't be visible to see how sensitive you are to the ingredients so that you do not experience lasting redness from leaving it on for too long.
Magic Fragrant Shaving Powder which is meant for men of color which I am not but I find it to be very useful in a few different ways. The first is the same as the Nair Bikini Cream, between the brows. The other way I have used this is a a replacement for shaving down there. It is quick and works well but you do have to use it every few days. This is the most affordable option, although all three are pretty cheap. I think this is my favorite of the three due to its versatility, efficiency, and price.

Here it is, my diy make up remover. I love trying out different products but with my eyes I find that I have to be careful because they can dry out easily. This diy makeup remover is cheap and easy to make and get off ANYTHING. It cannot be used by those with lash extensions because it is purely oil.
So start by gathering your material. You'll need cotton rounds, baby or olive oil and a jar with a diameter slightly greater than that of the cotton round and anything you'd like to decorate the jar with.
Now put 10-15 cotton rounds into the jar and add oil until cotton rounds are covered. Give the cotton rounds a minute to soak in the oil and the add ten-15 more and oil for those to fill up. repeat this until your jar is full.
At this point you can decorate the jar any way you'd like. I think a ribbon would be super cute or a paint job, make it your own. So here it is, super simple. These makeup removing pads are extremely gentle and would be great to travel with, just move it to a smaller container and bring it on the go with you.
