Making Sense of Hair Wax Removal Products
We all want silky smooth skin. While professional waxing is an option, it can be expensive and requires an appointment. For those opting to do their own hair removal, wax kits are available in a variety of price ranges and styles. There are so many options, however, that selecting the right wax treatment for removing unwanted hair can be confusing. Convenience, ease-of-use, and pain tolerance are all things to consider when shopping.
Brazilian wax hair removal is one of the most popular methods of hair removal and centers on the pubic area. Unlike other “styles,” Brazilian waxing removes all the pubic hair in the region. Wax that has been softened and warmed in a warmer is applied to the area, and then small cloth strips are applied. Once the wax is completely hardened, the cloth is pulled quickly, pulling the hair out at the roots.
Gigi is known for its wax treatment products, including everything from wax warmers to after-waxing creams to reduce pain and redness. All types of wax can be used in the wax warmer, which has a see-through lid to prevent contamination. It is priced at about $35.
The Andrea collection has both warm and cold wax treatment options. The company’s Hard Wax Kit for Face & Body includes everything needed for convenient home use. All you need is a microwave oven to heat the wax. It costs about $10.
Andrea’s cold wax system is a no-heat formula said to be preferred by those with sensitive skin. The wax is water soluble and infused with apple and pear extracts that soothe skin during the treatment itself.
When you don’t have time for a warm wax treatment, wax strips can be the answer. They’re neat, clean and relatively easy to use. Andrea has a variety of options to chose from, with a range of strip sizes so that you have the right size strip for the area being treated. With wax strips, it’s especially important to remember to pull the strip in the opposite direction of the way the hair is growing.
