I'm looking to reduce body hair and i'm weighing the options of shaving and home waxing. Anyone have any prior expereince with both and would like to shed some light?

Thanks!

I definitely recommend waxing over shaving. When shaving, the hair tends to grow back quickly and usually darker than it was before, so try waxing.

Norelco sells a device called bodygroom. It is a combination of clipper and screen shaver that does a great job.

Do not try and shave your chest. Your hair will grow back rough and well not be that attractive.  I'm starting to get more chest hair as I'm nearing 30 so I'm going to wax it.

Have you ever just used clippers ? They work for me well for just chest and arm hair , I would use it for face tho

I would use clippers as well....and I also use them to manscape. Invest in a decent pair... $30-$45. Wahl is a good brand plus you get all the attachments. I prefer a #2 or a #3 for my gotee, as for my chest I use bare clippers.

I waxed a few times when I was younger and was left with a rash until the hair grew back....

Shaving doesnt last long...

So try waxing (only painful first few times) if not stick to shaving.

Shaving is much better.
