“Guys, wish me f*ckin’ luck,” Cardi is heard saying in an Instagram Stories video posted on over the weekend. In the video, her elegantly manicured hand is holding a pump bottle of Veet Legs Body 3 in 1 Gel Cream Hair Remover. She says: “I hope I don’t burn my p*ssy off.”
With waxing appointments being unavailable for the last couple of months, people who prefer to be hairless have been faced with a few choices. Should I just grow it all out? Attempt waxing myself? Settle for shaving almost every day? For Cardi B, she decided to turn to an affordable option in order to remove her hair from the waist down – a depilatory – but not without expressing a little concern.
The good news is that nothing but the hair she was trying to remove was “burned off“. Depilatories work by chemically dissolve hair at the skin’s surface. Board-certified dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla has previously told Allure, “Some depilatories can cause a contact dermatitis that can be itchy.”
However, the sensitive-skin formula of Veet Legs Body 3 in 1 Gel Cream Hair Remover seems to have treated Cardi B right, leaving her legs (and presumably the other aforementioned part of her anatomy) super-smooth.
In follow-up videos of Cardi B’s hairless legs, she wrote, “OK it got me smooth,” and “Like foreal look how smooth ?A positive thing I found out and did from quarantine.”
If you’re ready to follow in Cardi’s footsteps and give a depilatory cream a try, this is an inexpensive option (just remember to do a patch test on a small area first to make sure you don’t experience irritation).
