Cyster Talk: Hair Removal Cream




Uggh! And super uggh! *SCREAM!* The dreaded hair, or hirsutism related to PCOS. Just absolutely ugh. It all started with a faint mustache in middle school, and it was only a few chin hairs by Freshmen year in high school. I don't know at what point my socially awkward teenage self decided it was a good idea to shave to avoid the bullying.

I have:

  1. Shaved
  2. Waxed
  3. Hair Removal cream
I have thought about laser hair removal, but the thought of laser beams against my already sensitive and messed up skin terrifies me. I will almost never do it. I am going on 32, so I am pretty comfortable with not trying to please people. Some women I know who suffer from hirutism, you wouldn't even know they have it because they stay on top of the extra hair growth. I on the other hand do not... I waxed once, NEVER AGAIN. She decided to wax my side burns, my mustache, my chin, my neck. I was horribly broken out in itchy, tender, red bumps for days. It was not worth the torture or pain.


I use this hair cream remover by Sally Hasen for years. The only time it irritates my skin is when I leave it on too long or have gone longer than a month without using it, yes I have done that. Again, I have just accepted my hirutism as a part of me and my PCOS symptoms. You know how I love bargains, so if you would like to buy in bulk, do so here! You can get six boxes! for only $26.33! 


Story:
Once on the train a girl came up to and asked me about my "beard" and what do I use, and she had a product she wanted me to try. She also told me that she gets laser hair removal and she loves it because it lasts for weeks.

Wait. I'm sorry weeks? That's not long enough for me, and the amount of money it costs! That's crazy.

Last Night:
You don't wax? I wax mine. It hurts like hell, but I can't go around looking crazy with hair all over my chin and neck. You should wax it and not use the cream, the wax will last longer.




I don't know whether to feel offended, or just shrug it off. Last night bothered me because I was just minding my business and shopping. I mean, I'm opening up with you guys and I feel no shame. Ok, so let's talk about the results. It stings, you can see the redness from after the process, but I'm hairless and I feel like a woman again. It feels like when you shave your legs for the first time after winter, ya know? Wait, you don't know because you shave your legs all winter? Oh...😖

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
