To use it sometimes I go up like I would with a razor in long strokes, sometimes I find short strokes are better per section as it picks up more hairs carefully. I keep a tweezer handy just to make sure I need to release any trapped ingrown hairs and I will pluck them out with the tweezers.

As soon as I'm finished I apply the Shea Moisture Honey and Blackseed Elixir, I spray it onto my hands and rub it all over my legs, it does state that it can tingle but not to worry as it's good for you, I honestly haven't felt any tingling but don't be alarmed if it happens. I've used ingrown hair prevention sprays before and they have stung and I found those made my legs worse off, irritated the bumps and made the skin itch.
This spray has anti-inflammatory Arabian Honey which aids tissue healing, reduces inflammation and scarring. Willow Bark extract helps soothe sensitised skin, reduced redness and prevent the occurrence of ingrown hair.
The Shea Moisture After Shave Lotion is applied after that & daily to help slow the regrowth and to continue to prevent bumps, razor burn, discolouration and whatever else can happen to the skin after waxing and shaving. Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf extract naturally slows hair regrowth while giving the added benefit of finer, less coarse hair.
None of these irritate my skin which makes it worth the money, they normally retail for over £12 each but have been half price. I think I need to keep up with the epilating as it does remove hairs that are 0.5mm in length.
So now I've done the legs, there's so much more left on this body to do pluck and feather this month.
