Beauty, Burning Loins, and Bushbalm

Beauty, Burning Loins, and Bushbalm

Why hair growth isn't "unattractive" 

Once a swarthy teenager with dreams of Brazilian trimmed nethers, I’ve had a contentious relationship with my pubic hair from a very young age. I can remember slathering burning hair removal creams between my legs gagging from the toxic fumes. I was too afraid to use a DIY wax kit and showing a stranger my Italian heritage was completely out of the question.

I can remember completing one such ritual before visiting the gynecologist - who was a woman.


What the hell was I thinking!?

At the time, I could recite the arguments for removing it by heart. The sex is better; it’s cleaner during that time of the month; it makes me feel sexy. Great! If it’s actually true. In my case, these never played a role in the decision.

Pubic hair is gross, and it’s meant to be removed. That was the mantra of my girlfriends, guy friends and lovers. In fact all body hair is gross. My hair removal routine gradually extended to other areas over time. I would remove hair from my arms, belly, back, you name it. I needed to be smooth like a baby seal.

I can remember one time I got up enough nerve to use a sugaring kit (which was supposed to be better than waxing) on my back hair. No human is meant to be able to reach their low back without help. The result was laughable! Patches of hair were left in the randomest places and I was more embarrassed of my back than before.


"The breaking point was a chemical burn. I had left the cream on too long on the sensitive skin at the top of my leg and when I removed it a permanent scar was left behind."



I wanted to feel beautiful, and back then smooth skin was the only option!

I wish Bushbalm was on the market when I was a teenager. Beauty products for pubic hair could mean other people like me won’t end up dangerously putting harsh chemicals next to their babymaker! I’m lucky that it was only a burn on my leg.

Shameless plug aside, this product at the very least gives us a choice. We now have the option to create a beauty routine with or without hair and in my opinion that’s revolutionary! For too long young girls have been beat down with the idea that pubic hair is gross. From my view the choice now is soft, great smelling hair or an arduous routine of hair removal that can be painful or potentially dangerous.
