I am one who is sympathetic as I hate any body hair on myself. I personally have used the sugar wax kits on my arms, legs, etc and I love it. It has lasted a while with only touch ups needed every 5 days.

The Parissa brand does not have any chemicals, and does not give me rashes either. I hope this helps you a bit with your decision.
