Do they have a genaric form?
No but if you buy it on drugstore.com you can get a $25 rebate so you'd pay $40 instead of $65. The tube lasts forever.
I need an RX right??
I hate going to the damn doctor all the time, ugh...its always a waste of time and money..they NEVER help.
Tell me about it. But yeah you need and rx, it shouldnt be hard to get one.
you should rather use wax band for the face rather than shaving them...if you shave the hair you dont actually take it out.
Yeah when I was 18 I had peach fuzz on my chin. I shaved it off and it grew in thicker!
I trim my face with an electric trimmer..... it looks like a toothbrush.
I have never "shaved" my face.
I cant wax my face. I had 1/2 full face done once and I broke out SO BAD in little bumps...I have such sensitive skin, it actually takes off a layer. I had to stop waxing my upper lip years ago. It made me have melasma there too. The eyebrows I still get waxed, but only once in a blue moon, cuz it makes my skin horribly red and inflamed. I couldnt bear that all over my face, much less the bumps for weeks.
Rainbird, I got the breakouts too! I almost stopped using it becuase of it, but stuck with it and the breakouts went away! It was so worth it!
The melasma is not from waxing, but from your BCP. Hormones....(estrogens I believe). I have it on my cheek bones, upperlip and a lot on my forehead...
BEFORE I was on BCP I got melasma from waxing.
Oh. I dind not know that was possible. That sucks.
maybe then you should consider laser?
I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Vaniqa) - pharm4all.com Good price and quality.
