Maybe it was fun when your legs slightly resembled a gorilla's at age 12 and everyone else was doing it, but 10 years later I couldn't be more over it. Actually, I was over it by age 12.5 but whateva. What the Gillette Venus Goddess's failed to mention while prancing around on TV with perfect, silky legs is that razor burn happens. Painful cuts happen. Thick, sharp hair happens.
And we don't need to let it happen to us ever again.

A normal girl probably shaves 2-3 times a week (if we don't count the overachievers who shave daily and we're not friends with them anyway). That's 2 razors a week, 8 razors a month, 96 razors a year. Assuming razors are like $2 a piece, the laser will have already paid for itself after 6 months. And then the hundreds you save each year can be used for importing all-natural shea butter straight from Africa!
Tip: ALWAYS research the facility that is offering the deal BEFORE you buy. Some places might have horrible reviews and you deserve to be treated like a hairless princess.
Tip #2: Know your own pain threshold. If you usually cry over a skin pinch on St. Patty's day, this is probably not for you.
So, as the wise Taylor Swift once sang, "me and my body hair are never ever EVER...getting back together". Happy deal hunting!
