My friend, Pam, loves QVC. She keeps the QVC Channel on her television for background noise like I do the Weather Channel. You remember that my birthday is the week before Christmas, right? Well, for my birthday and Christmas, Pam gave me some Perlier Honey Miel body lotion, hand lotion and body wash, found at QVC. I absolutely love the stuff. I get it every year. She also gave me some Wen Shampoo and a sweater like one of hers that I had admired. I'm telling y'all, girlfriend hooked me up.
So, as we sat oohing and ahhing over our gifts and sharing products and good ideas as we women tend to do, she made me really excited to check out QVC for myself. I shared with Pam that I had wanted to try the Clarisonic cleansing system for your face and I thought that would be a good item to start. I ordered it, and love it. I was bitten by the QVC bug. I couldn't wait to see what else I could find on the Q.
After looking around on the QVC website, I noticed another item that sounded like something to try. I even watched a video about it.
It was an epilator.
Not just any epilator. It was an Emoji eRase Pro 60-Disc Epilator. Again, I watched the video and read the reviews. Anything that promises to prolong shaving your legs for 4-6 weeks had to be in my arsenal. Now, this epilator uses 60 tweezers to remove the hair from the root. It was designed for comfort and efficiency, with the description saying that the first time you use it, you may feel a pricking sensation. Pam has one. Well, ok then. I had to try it.
The epilator came the other day and sat in the box until I worked up the courage to try it....tonight. I plugged that bad boy up and started sweeping the thing up and down my leg.
Do y'all remember Jerry Clower? Do you remember that holler he used to do when he was talking about coon hunting. Well Jerry Clower didn't have anything on me when I commenced to using that epilator.
Pricking sensation my foot! I broke out into a sweat and felt my face get hot. I was sure I had steam coming out of my nose and I was afraid to look down because I just knew that the 60-Disc tweezers had just eaten my leg up. Everyone of those 60-discs were working on me....yanking out leg hair after leg hair. But as painful as it was, I couldn't stop. Because, how was I going to let one leg go 4-6 weeks in between shavings and the other one...every other day. No, I had to keep going. Y'all! It took me 30 minutes to epilate both legs.
Painful, yes. But in the end, I now have nice smooth legs. I can't stop rubbing them. Ha! And thank the Lord that Pam hooked me up with the Honey Miel. I'm super soothed now and going to bed. That was an exhausting experience.
I've got a yoga class in the morning. I'm going to need it.
