    Just a quick note to say, if you love your thick body hair and choose to go au naturel, this is beautiful and we support it. But if there are any parts of your body that you do like to de-fuzz, and really struggle with the problems that come with it, we hope these things can help!

    1. This moisturising razor, for a quick and easy fix.

    Amazon / Via

    Shaving is probably the easiest method if you want to remove hair quickly, and for the laziest among us, the blade section on this razor is surrounded by a solid moisturising bar, so you don’t even need to add shaving foam! When the soap solid runs out, it’s a good reminder to change the detachable head, keeping the blades hygienic and effective.

    Price: £9.00

    2. This moisturising shaving gel, that won’t clog your drain.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love how you don’t need to use much of this to get a really close shave, which means it’s less messy and lasts way longer!

    Price: £4.99

    3. And this shower and shave cream that’s specially designed for ~down there~.

    Amazon / Via

    The moisturising fragrance-free formula reduces redness and irritation, so it’s good for all areas of your body that are super sensitive.

    Price: £2.00

    4. This 100% natural shaving kit that has all the bases covered.

    Amazon / Via

    Infused with tea tree oil, this set of pre-shave wash, shaving cream and post-shave balm works to prevent ingrown hairs and soothe sensitive and intimate areas after shaving.

    Price: £29.87

    5. This moisturising balm to help soothe and soften your skin.

    Amazon / Via

    This balm has all-natural ingredients, including beeswax, rosehip oil and aloe vera, ideal for soothing the dreaded shave burn. This also doubles up as a chafe-relief cream for those hotter days!

    Price: £6.75

    6. Using this epilator is a good option if shaving doesn’t last long enough for you.

    Amazon / Via

    This epilator is highly rated for removing particularly thick hair - including short ones - and the LED light, which helps you to see and grab every last hair. There’s no tiptoeing around the fact that epilating can hurt like HELL, you’re literally pulling the hair out from the root after all, but the effects last way longer than shaving, and it also helps your hair to grow back less thick.

    If you’re prone to ingrown hairs when you epilate but hate how quickly your hair grows back after shaving, it’s a good idea to use a combination of the two: shaving before you can reach ingrown hair territory, and epilating once the hair starts growing back too thick.

    Price: £46.89

    7. Use this exfoliating brush before epilating to get your hairs to stand up, making them easier to grab.

    Amazon / Via

    It also removes dead skin cells, softens your skin, and helps to get rid of ingrown hairs, just make sure you scrub gently as the bristles are quite hard!

    Price: £6.99

    8. And use this exfoliating scrub after to prevent ingrown hairs and moisturise your skin.

    Amazon / Via

    Customers love how the coconut and sweet almond oils in this scrub deeply moisturise the skin, so your skin will be baby-smooth without having to bother with any body cream. And a little goes a long way, so you won't have to repurchase for a long time!

    Price: £16.99

    9. These ice packs will help to reduce redness after epilating or waxing.

    Amazon / Via

    Hands up if you’ve left the house with a pink moustache after a last-minute face waxing sesh. You can store these packs anywhere and just have to squeeze gently in the middle for them to become frozen ice packs! Meaning more space in the freezer for the important things in life (ice cream). The rectangle shape of these packs is also ideal for covering larger areas of the body, like legs.

    Price: £12.95 for a box of 20 packs

    10. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs now that you’ve met this ingrow go lotion.

    Amazon / Via

    If scrubs and body brushes don’t have much effect on your ingrown hairs then you can try this treatment lotion. Rather than manually scrubbing the top layer of skin, you just have to wipe this lotion on with a cotton pad to chemically exfoliate the skin and release the trapped hair. This formula does have quite a strong smell so make sure you use it in a well-ventilated room.

    Price: £11.13

    11. This tweezer kit to tackle any smaller hairy situations.

    Amazon / Via

    Thick and natural eyebrows are here to stay, and luckily for hairy girls, this is an area in which we excel! But if you wanted to pluck stray hairs underneath or in between your brows’ natural shape, customers love the tweezers in this kit for their preciseness and good grip. The small kit is also easy to take with you on the go!

    Price: £6.99

    12. And this facial hair trimmer if you want to get rid of any peach fuzz.

    Amazon / Via

    This trimmer is gentle on the more delicate skin on your face, and the built-in light will help you to see every hair.

    Price: £12.99

    13. Or if you prefer waxing, you can start with this pre-wax cleansing gel for sensitive skin.

    Amazon / Via

    It helps to clean and prep the skin before waxing: hygiene is key!

    Price: £6.85

    14. This wax melter will save you (and your wallet) a trip to the salon.

    Amazon / Via

    This highly rated wax melter is compatible with all types of wax, and heats up in minutes, so an at-home wax might be more quick and easy than you thought!

    Price: £16.99

    15. Use it with this tea tree soft wax for sensitive skin.

    Amazon / Via

    This wax is especially good if you want to remove thick, stubborn hair, and hair in more sensitive areas. It’s also compatible with the wax melter: you can just pop the pot straight into the machine and there will be no sticky wax mess to clean up afterwards.

    Price: £6.99

    16. And don’t forget these waxing spatulas.

    Amazon / Via

    ‘Cause it’s probably not a good idea to apply this wax with your fingers.
