This Valentine’s Day, how will you spoil your honey? Candy is so trite and massage oils stain the sheets. Wanna give a gift that your sweetie has never seen? Try the Opulent Bikini Wax with 24 karat gold and Swarovski Crystals from Completely Bare.
Yes, you heard me right. Completely Bare wants to bedazzle your naughty bits.
The Completely Bare Opulent Bikini Wax is the hottest way to add flare – down there. Once an exclusive service provided by completely bare’s Bond Street location, the Opulent Bikini Wax is now available at all Completely Bare locations. The lavish treatment includes a Completely Bare wax followed by a 24-karat gold spray to give your smooth skin extra shimmer. Next, Swarovski crystals are individually applied by hand to create your look of choice.

No Valentine’s Day date? Completely Bare offers sorry singletons the Opulent Bikini Wax in two other design options: a broken heart or skull and crossbones.
Broken heart or skull and crossbones? That was way harsh, Tai. Why not “Spinster” or “Cat Lady” spelled out in crystals? I guess that would be hitting below the belt.

Shaving every day is a huge pain in the tuchus. And you’ve been way too busy to make an appointment for a wax. Honey, I hear you. I sympathize. But that’s no reason for you to be walking around looking like a Monchhichi.
Lucky for you hirsute ladies, there’s Veet Salon Line Ready to Use Wax Strips. They help to achieve smooth and silky desirable legs and bikini line in minutes – from the comfort of your home. Using the product is quick, easy and virtually mess-free. Just warm a wax strip between your hands, apply, and let ‘er rip. The strips not only effectively remove hair…they also feature a delicate aromatherapy scent that pampers your senses and suits your skin type.
The normal to dry skin wax strips are specially designed to moisturize as they remove hair. The sensitive skin wax strips are dye-free and contain Vitamin E and Almond Oil. And here’s the bonus…the Salon Line wax strips are designed for hair as short as 2mm, so you never have to wait for your hair to get “long enough” to wax for salon-like results.
Veet products are conveniently sold at your local drugstore.

Think it takes you a long time getting ready to go out? You probably don’t primp as long as Sean “P Diddy” Combs. But considering he’s one of the most well-groomed gents in the business, it should come as no surprise. The media mogul recently sat down with the UK’s Daily Mail for a piece entitled, How to… Party like P Diddy. Here’s an excerpt:
I have my own particular ritual for getting ready, which takes about two hours, but before I settle on an outfit, I like to try on lots of different ones, and I’ll have a long bath beforehand.
I may change twice in an evening and I’ll always have a spare outfit on hand if something happens to the one I’m wearing.
The dress code for the Hollywood party was ‘sexy formal’, and I loved the outfit I eventually wore, which was a vintage white tuxedo jacket. I had a real ‘black Sinatra’ look going on. Otherwise, I like to wear things from my Sean John line.
My clothing line is like fashion Viagra. While I’m getting ready I like to relax with a drink – vodka and lemonade – and listen to my music, usually some James Brown.
Then I’ll have a manicure and pedicure – and yes, I wax as well. Grooming’s very important and men owe it to women to make sure they’re well groomed.
I wax my privates. I’ll also wear my fragrance, Unforgivable Black. You can tell a lot by a man’s fragrance, and either you have good taste or you can smell like your grandfather. In everything I do, I visualise myself either putting clothes on or taking them off.
How does Kim Kardashian give oily skin the kiss off? Kim swears by oil-free makeup and powder. She also carries blot papers to keep the greasies at bay throughout the day.
And even though our favorite junk in the trunk-tastic socialite wears $400 Dior shades and kicks it in Christian Louboutins, she can be a bit of a penny-pincher. She says, “You can use toilet seat covers to blot your face. It’s basically the same material as blot papers and they’re free! Ha ha!”
To keep her skin and oil glands acting right, Kim visits her dermatologist, Dr. Ava Shamban, for medical facials. She also frequents Aida Thibiant in Beverly Hills.
As for hair removal, Kim has kissed her waxing days goodbye. She much prefers lasers. “I started at the American Laser Center, but Laser Away has numbing cream. I can be such a baby about that stuff!”
