So, following advice I saw in a comment either here or in sex_tips about someone using Orajel when waxing, I went out and bought a bottle of generic Orajel in the liquid form. I believe there is liquid, gel and paste. The bottle was on sale at Meijer (which is like K-Mart/Walmart but TOTALLY BETTER and is mostly in Michigan and Ohio) for like two or three bucks, real Orajel is between five and seven depending on what type you get.
I started out just using a little bit on my bikini area/a little further in and I won't say that it is painless, but there is definitely LESS PAIN. It takes it from a sharp, intense I-can-feel-it-pulling-from-the-root pain to a dull and tolerable pain. I was so excited!! I spent two-three hours last night (Yes, I'm a 20 year old female epilating her legs on a Friday night) putting Orajel everywhere and ripping out all of my hair. It was amazing! I just wanted to share this idea with everyone here who is too scared of the pain to try epilating and didn't see that comment.
The only bad thing...It smells vaguely like coconut and gets obnoxious after awhile...But it makes your tongue feel cool.
