So Easy, and So Inexpensive!
I must preface this by saying that I’ve had a Brazilian wax done by a professional for the last 2 years. I toyed with doing this at home, and even ordered this product once and returned it without opening because I psyched myself out of it. However with the job situation being somewhat shaky, I decided I HAD to cut back, and my boyfriend REALLY enjoys the clean look of the Brazilian. So I ordered this again, not without a small amount of trepidation.I am totally blown away by how simple this is! I sat on the bed (on a towel) to do this, and kept the jar on a candle warmer after warming it in the microwave (it took a full 2 minutes to heat up in my small microwave). I followed the instructions exactly:1. Cut hair to 1/4 inch length2. Wash the area with soap and water and dry completely.3. Generously apply the provided oil (super important!).4. Apply the wax in small patches, and allow to dry for 30 seconds.5. Flip up one end of the wax and pull in the opposite direction of the hair growth.The whole process took me about 45 minutes for my very first try. Some things to know:1. This is probably not for someone who has never waxed before. I’m used to waxing and have a high tolerance for pain. This doesn’t really hurt to me…just like ripping a band-aid off. However that will not be the case for a first-timer, I am quite sure.2. The wax gets brittle and hard to remove if you leave it on longer than one minute.3. You can ball up the just-used wax and use it to help remove any stubborn wax that has been left behind (like you do with tape or a sticker to get sticky residue off).4. This stuff will definitely stick to your nails! I may try using gloves next time. However, after I showered and exfoliated the area (exfoliating afterwards is very important to avoid ingrown hairs), I applied more of the oil to the area, and also rubbed some into my hands. Voila! The wax came right off my nails!5. You MAY be able to get more than one application per jar, but I only had about 1/4 of the jar left and just threw the remainder away. Next time I will plan to do my legs and underarms at the same time, but I had recently shaved them.I’m so thrilled that I will be able to maintain my tidy look with such an inexpensive option. A Brazilian is $60 in my area, but this is less than $5 an application! I highly recommend this product and will now have it on “Subscribe and Save”.Now, I’m going to see if I can get my boyfriend to let me use it on him! <evil grin>
I’ve been waxing/epilating my bikini area for years; and decided to try this product after a rave review from my friend. This is the worst thing I’ve ever done to my pubic area.- This wax never hardens enough to be pulled off easily. Imagine trying to get rid of a piece of chewing gum…attached to your labia.- Oil makes skin slippery (duh!); hence, I cannot pull my skin tight – and tightly pulled skin is a key to a painless and clean waxing- Took forever. When I use my usual wax (strip free Parissa), I’m done in 20-25 minutes. After an hour and a half of fussing with Surgi I had lots and lots of hair left behind.The worst part: I have ingrowns galore. Never, ever had it happened before (and as I said, I’ve been waxing, shaving and epilating for years). It looks horrible and hurts like the dickens. I’ve tried TendSkin, AHA, BHA, azulene oil and whatnot. Despite all my efforts, the entire area still looks like a train wreck. Romantic life effectively ruined; and I could have probably opened my own waxing place with the money I’ve spent dealing with ingrowns.Bottom line: it does not work for me. I am getting back to Parissa.
Like a messy, painful craft project.
I followed the instructions to the letter and still wound up with wax all over the bathroom and severe pain and bruising on my ladybits. Apparently I’m not woman enough for this product, even though my favorite movie is Scarface and I listen to Slayer. Do yourself a favor and pay someone to do this for you. It’s worth the investment.
