    1:40 This is so inaccurate. At home lasers do NOT work on dark skin. The lasers could not tell the difference between dark hair and dark skin so they were not safe for brown skin, or even for tan skin! Safe lasers for darker skin is very new and it is not available for at home use yet.

    Increíble que aun en un video de depilación no pongan a las mujeres con vellos. No lo entiendo, se supone que es mejor si se muestra el vello antes y después de usar el producto para ver el resultado y la diferencia sino no sirve de nada

    What about the 1800s and the 1700s ? Did women back then cared enough to remove their bodily hair or the standards were low in the old days?

    Most women I know stopped shaving after they got married. They realised it doesnt really affect their relationship, and isnt really that important like they thought. And it became okay if one's husband saw her with body hair. No big deal. You will realize that later

    I use a metal razor, I highly recommend instead of plastic ones. Environmentally friendly, sustainable, cheap, long-lasting, and gives a much closer shave

    Ummm sugaring has been done forever and is a dominant form of hair removal, at least in the Middle East. My grandmother, mom and myself...all sugared. I wasnt introduced to shaving except in north America. This is a very eurocentric history of hair removal.

    Girls here acting like not shaving is the new standard just because they see the comment section of this especific video about shaving that is 1/ 10000,000000 part of your life the rest of your life 90000,00000 literally no one would ever shame you for shaving while girls who don't shave literally have to deal with people shaming them regularly for it, on the internet and in real life. Please stop acting like the victim 💛
