Regardless if you wax, shave, thread, I'm here to tell you that hair removal of any sort is expensive, and here's what your money could be going towards without it.

10 Things You COULD Be Spending Money On Other Than Hair-Removal Products

It's an unspoken societal rule that women must shave, wax, or do something to remove all hair from their bodies. But in 2018, some women are choosing not to. It's honestly a personal preference nowadays, yet women who choose not to shave are often judged for their decision.

Now I really don't care how you choose to manage your personal care, I'm just here to emphasize just how expensive hair removal products are. Because really, it's insane.

SO, LADIES (and gentlemen), here are all the things you could be buying with the money that you spend on hair removal.


*If a product is listed with a price range instead of one direct price, the comparison is based on the average of those two prices.

Leg Waxing ~or~ 7 Large Cheese Pizzas From Domino's 

On average a leg waxing can cost anywhere between $45 to $100, while one large cheese pizza from Domino's is only $9.99! Meaning you could get 7 (or more) for the cost of leg waxing!

Bikini Wax ~or~ 4 Months of Netflix

An average, a bikini wax ranges from $35 to $45, while one month of Netflix is about $9.99

Where are your priorities?

Underarm Waxing ~or~ 6 Extra Servings of Guac at Chipotle

Prices for an underarm wax can range from $11 to $14. With all that money, you could be living a life of luxury, consisting of not five, but six extra servings of guacamole at Chipotle.

Full Body Wax ~or~ An Alexa-Echo Dot 

A full body wax is, on average, about $65. Which honestly shocked me. But let's talk about the fact that you can buy an Alexa - Echo Dot from Amazon for $49.99 WITH free shipping. That's less than the average cost of a full body wax.

Eyebrow Waxing ~or~ 10 Slurpees

An eyebrow waxing can range from $7 to $10, which doesn't sound bad at all for Zendaya-like eyebrows. But, with that money, you could buy 10 Slurpees from 7-Eleven.

Eyebrow Threading ~or~ Two 20pc Sets of Silverware from Target

Let's be real. You've been using the same two forks since you unpacked your apartment. Well, with the money that you'd spend on an eyebrow threading, which is on average $20, you could spoil yourself with a nice set of cutlery.

A 3 Pack of Sensitive Skin Razors ~or~ 17 Cups Of Noodles (Single Cups)

I love Ramen. You love Ramen. We all love Ramen. It's tasty. It's fast. It's filling. So when you are spending $6.97 on a pair of razors that may or may not leave your legs covered in razor bumps, just know, there's a store full of Ramen calling your name.

Nair Hair Removal ~or~ 3 McDonald's Cheeseburgers

A chemical filled lotion made to burn off all hair from the surface it is applied onto, Nair has been a more affordable, do-it-yourself, friendly alternative to salon waxing. One bottle of Nair is about $4.49, which, is equivalent to the price of three McDonald's Cheeseburgers.

One Intuition Razor with the Renewing Moisture Rim ~or~ 5 Large Iced Coffees from Dunkin Donuts

Now I won't lie, that renewing moisture rim is Nice (with a capital N), but at $15, I question whether the purchase is worth it or not. I mean, with $15 you could buy yourself five large iced coffees from Dunkin Donuts. It's your choice though.

A Pair of Tweezers ~or~ 8 Original Glazed Krispy Kreme Donuts

These two metal sticks used to pluck hair from skin strand by strand can be valued between $4 to $9. Meanwhile, an original glazed donut from Krispy Kreme is only .99 cents.

I hope these price comparisons were eye-opening for you. And, I hope you just take a second and think, what's really worth my money?

Until recently, television wasn't really the place for large-scale projects. But with the successes of online streaming shows such as Stranger Things and Black Mirror, as well as the high-budget epics like Game of Thrones. It was recently revealed what the premise and title of the upcoming Disney streaming exclusive, live-action Star Wars series would be – The Mandalorian. While it's the first real project the service is actively working on, it is not the first shot at a television series in the galaxy far far away. In the time between the Prequel Trilogy and the Disney sale in 2012, Lucasfilm was working on and off on a live-action series that would be the new step for the saga, but over time it proved that some things are just not meant to be.

God Is Constantly God

When there is nothing constant in me.

God Is Constantly God
www.inkwoodbooks.com

We are constantly moving. I don’t know what that looks like for you, but for me it means both physically and mentally. For the past two years, I have often found myself having to pack up boxes and move them into, or out of, places. I would say that somehow this has become, on average, an every six-month project. I have lived in many different places, met many new people, and have fought for what I know is true in different ways at each of them.
