When I was asked to do a review of an all natural hair removal spa wax kit I was all about it, mostly due to curiosity.
When I was a teen I used to try and wax myself. It was painful, did a poor job and was more than likely wrought with chemicals. Now the question was, Will it work and how much will it hurt?”
I already knew that I did not have to worry about chemicals.
BodyHonee offers four kits. Sugar Wax, Spa Wax Kit, Hard Wax Kit: Face, Underarms and Bikini and Ready To Use Wax Strips. I would be trying the Spa Wax Kit with my beautiful daughter.
The ingredients on this particular kit are as follows:
Wax: colophonium (gum rosin), glyceryl rosinate (pine resin), persea gratissima (avocado) oil.
Basically this means the ingredients were tree sap and avocado oil. So far so good.
The cleansing towelettes (kit comes with two) is made of plant based isopropyl myristate, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba oil), matricaria chamomilla (german chamomile) oil.
It felt great but was pretty oily. The plus is that it easily took off any wax that my less than perfect waxing skills may have left behind.
In addition to the 10 ounces of wax and 2 wipes, the spa wax kit also comes with 2 wooden spatulas and 10 waxing strips.
The Spa Wax Kit is an extra strength formula that will remove the thickest and shortest of hairs. It’s perfect for use almost anywhere on the body (even the face). You can find more info on this kit here: http://bodyhonee.com/shop/spa-wax-kit/.
As I was not all that brave I was only willing to give it a whirl on our legs but, spoiler alert, I tried it on my lip too.
All in all it was easy to use once we practiced a bit. If you do not warm the wax enough it is hard to spread and does not remove the hair especially well but if you warm it too much you will burn your skin. Be careful to check the temperature.
The package description is as follows:
“BodyHonee Spa Wax is an all-natural, extra strength hair remover that will completely remove thick, coarse, unwanted hairs. No more missed hairs – even the shortest ones are removed. Hair regrowth will appear slower, softer and finer than other hair removal methods. The naturally derived formula infused with avocado oil will leave you with beautiful, shiny, smooth skin! With ingredients so safe, and results as effective as going to a salon – it is the ideal waxing kit for a healthy, natural lifestyle. Using the kit is easy, simply apply a thin layer of BodyHonee Spa wax onto you skin in the same direction as hair growth, apply your epilating strip over the wax and smooth down firmly 3-5 times, then in one quick motion, remove the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth.”
The packaging also promises that my daughter and I will remain hair free for up to 8 weeks. Hit me up at the 8 week mark and I will let you know how things are going.
Do you prefer to wax yourself at home or to go to the salon and be waxed? What is the cost of a salon eyebrow, or other, wax by you?
