I wanted to make sure I was fully prepared and that I did it the correct way, so I employed an arsenal of at home waxing products from clean+easy and Gigi. The products from Gigiincluded: an Anesthetic Numbing Spray that is used before waxing to take the sting out, a Bikini Soothing Cream, used after waxing to soothe and moisturize the skin, Slow Grow with Argan Oil to minimize the appearance of new hair growth and No Bump Roll-On to eliminate ingrown hairs, bumps and razor burns.
