I'm terrified to get a brazilian. Skin down there is just so SENSITIVE!

I have never had a brazilian wax the thought of it scares me too much.

Good tips! I find waxing is only painful the first couple of times you do it (or have it done), then it's not so bad. For home waxing I prefer the kit made by Bliss.

I have never had a wax down there and I never will but I have had a really bad experience with eyebrow waxing. She made my brows look pretty but I broke out in a horrible rash all around my my eyes and looked terrible for a week!
