Do You Wax?


So, do you wax, pluck, shave, thread, cream hair removal or are you completely untouched? We all have out personal preferences on how we remove our bodily hair, mine has always been a mixture between shaving, waxing and cream hair removal. Out of all 3, waxing is the most effective as it removes the hair right from the root which means you will be hairless for longer which lets face it is what we all want. The only downside is that waxing is the most painful! Beauty is pain though, we must remember this!

Parissa have a wonderful range of waxing products. I used their brow shaper strips, hot wax and wax strips and each of them were very effective. Here’s what I thought & a bit more about the products…


Brow Shaping Wax Strips:

I must admit I have never seen these anywhere on the market before. They are mini sized wax strips perfect to fit around your brows. They are great for getting that brow arch perfect or even for the hairs on your fingers or toes. Such a cool idea to make wax strips that small. This also comes with Azulene Oil which soothes and softens and helps prevent ingrown hairs. The other great thing about these wax strips is that they are very small so the pain is minimal! There are 32 strips in the packet.

Hot Wax With No Strips:

This wax is in a little metal saucepan, in order to heat the product you put it on the stove till it has reached a honey like consistency. Another cool concept, I have not seen this on the market before. In the packet it comes with spatulas and this is how you apply the wax to your body part. You put a fairly thick layer on and it will dry quite quickly, give the wax a little tap to make sure it’s not wet and then pick an edge and rip off, always going against the hair growth. Make sure the where you are pulling off the skin is pulled taut! The good thing about this product is that you can reheat the wax when you like so if you didn’t use that much, you can reuse when you wish too. Fab creation!

Wax Strips For Face And Bikini:

These strips are ones that you would have probably seen before on the market somewhere. You have to rub the strips with in between your hands to warm up the wax, then separate the strips in to two, smooth it down on the desired area, pull skin taut and pull off in the opposite direction of hair growth. You get 16 strips in the box.

I found each product worked very well and I had no issues, I was very impressed! They are also super handy for travelling. I will definitely be taking these away with me when I go on my next adventure!

  1. I always worry if my facial hair would grow more and faster if I remove them…. Thanks for sharing!! xx


  2. You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing which I feel I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very broad for me. I’m having a look ahead to your next publish, I will attempt to get the dangle of it!
