I do not know where I found, or, why I own half the things I have stashed around here. Today I was looking for an old soap label - yes, an old soap label - which I did not find, but instead, I found this old Epilator wax block and instructions from the 1940's.
Personally, I have never even tried anything like this; whether from a box at the drug store or professionally applied at the spa. I cannot imagine, however, the risks that must have been associated with trying this at home 70 years ago!
Yikes! Your arms too? This looks like a long, painful and involved process. Especially for someone with even a quarter Mediterranean blood in them like me!
At first I thought she was tackling quite the 'stache in these images! Then I realized that's an illustration of the wax on her upper lip.
In some odd way I find this embossed block of wax quite beautiful.
