There’s virtually no one on this planet who enjoys having a bikini wax , or relishes the thought of having one.
It’s part of the reason why many women (and a smattering of men) choose to have it done by a professional.
That said, there are some brave souls who decide to do it themselves. Like Hannah Scorer.
Hannah recently bought a packet of wax strips from Boots, and was left far from impressed by the results.
Voicing her displeasure in a hilarious rant on the Boots UK Facebook page, Hannah even goes as far as to say the strips caused her bikini line to resemble “the dancefloor of a really questionable club at 3am,” which is far from idea.
“Boots, we need to have a word,” she begins.
“These are, categorically, the worst wax strips in the world. I haven’t tried all the other wax strips, but I’m confident I don’t need to. That’s how bad these are.

Hannah panicked, wondering how she would deal with the situation, but then remembered the wax residue removing moisturising wipes included in the box of wax – was salvation around the corner?
“I took one of the wipes and started trying to rub off the wax/glue/melted Push Pop hybrid.
“However, instead of rescuing my skin, the wipe becomes trapped and bits of it tear off and firmly adhere to my waxy, furry skin, like a series of tiny surrender flags.
Two razor blades and some very expensive body oil later, Hannah got rid of rid of wax and finished the job, adding, “My f***y looks like a bright pink…
