One of the things I’m extremely grateful for is inheriting my mom’s hairlessness—I grew up never having to wax my arms and legs, and it only took a few sessions of underarm laser hair removal to get rid of my kilikili hair forever.
BUT there are certain areas I can’t just laser off and I hate, hate, hate having to wax that area because the pain is usually more than what I can bear. The only times I actually have that area waxed is during the summer, if I know I’m hitting the beach.
Strip Ministry of Waxing recently came out with a limited edition Mulled Wine Wax, which makes it more tolerable for first-timers. It’s infused with red wine, orange, cloves, cinnamon, aloe vera, and chamomile—making it perfect for those who aren’t really used to getting waxed because it reduces the pain and discomfort.
I tried it yesterday at their branch in Mega Fashion Hall, and I was honestly surprised with how quick the session was (it took about 30 minutes). Normally, I dread it because of the pain—but because of the really good quality of the wax, my therapist didn’t have to keep going back to areas that had finer hair because the wax was able to pull it off in just one go.
I would definitely recommend this if you have the same fears of waxing as I do. Again, the wax is limited edition until further notice so if you’d like to try it, I suggest to book a session with Strip Manila while it’s still available! They’ve got branches in SM Megamall, Serendra, and Greenbelt.
