It's 7th of May already and I only posted once before? Orz
Time sure does fly so fast ah. Lately busy with college thingy :/
I'm pretty sure this month won't be my productive month since I will face my final exam and go for a trip overseas :3
But today, I want to share about waxing thingy, which currently used by a lot of bloggers!
So as far as I know there are many brands of home made wax and most people use the Sugar Pot Wax one. I asked Acel to order wax and turns out that she choose this one, dunno why though. Maybe because this is slightly cheaper cause Acel is a cheapo LOL.
It's called Cool Sugar Wax, comes in a sturdy glass packaging with 250ml of product. They also gives 10 strips and 1 wooden spatula to apply the wax :D
|How to use|
That's how the wax looks like. It does smells like honey and VERY thick to the point it will be hard to spread it evenly if you don't put it on hot water first :/
You can re-use the strips and the spatula simply by soak it on hot / warm water :D Me and Acel had washed it for about 5 times and it's still fine so far.
Like I've said before, because the texture is so thick, I put the jar on hot water so it "melt" a little bit. The purpose is to make it easier to spread on :D
Sorry for the gross picture of my hairy leg :p HAHA it's not that long in real life la, I zoom it so you can see it clearer ;D
HOW TO USE?
1. Spread the wax thinly on the hairy area that you want to remove. Some people put powder first but I skip that step and it's still fine.
2. Cover that area using the strips, gently "press" it with rubbing motion~
3. PULL! I gotta admit this steps is a little bit hurt (for legs) and you need to pull it FAST~ Because once I pull it slowly because I'm afraid and the result is the hairs are still there lol.
4. Donee :D
Before I tried waxing I've some questions on my head and just in case you also have the same questions spinning on your head now, I'll answer it based on my experience :p
1. Is waxing hurt?
For me, yes. I have a low tolerance of pain (like if I cut my finger a liiiiiittle, not until it's bleeding, I cry immediately. lol) On the first usage, I tested it on my legs and it hurts D: Like 7 out of 10. Then I try it on my armpit and IT HURTS SO BAD T___T ! Like 12 out of 10 hahaha I scream like crazy until mom comes out and yell at me not to use waxing anymore. I didn't have the courage to do the other armpit so I just shave it lol.
But on the 2nd try, the pain is slowly reduce maybe because I already know how it will feel~ I no longer scream or something like that lol. The process is also become faster ;D
2. Will the hair grown thicker and faster?
No. It will have just the same thickness. For legs, it will take about 2 weeks for the hair to grow again and I don't see any difference with the previous hair. As for the armpits, I notice that the hair become thinner, dunno why though. It also takes much more time to grow than shaving :D
(+) Affordable - about IDR 65k if I'm not mistaken
(+) A little goes a long way
(+) The strips and spatula can be re-used
(+) Hair don't become thicker and need a long time to grow again
(-) Hurts T_T
Have you tried waxing before?
Is it hurt for you? Do your hair become thicker?
Thanks for reading and have a nice weekend everyone :DD
