Wax On, Wax Off


Everyone makes a beauty blunder here and there but there is one blunder that truly takes the cake: the hairy face! Ladies, it is not cute for your face to be covered in hair. No one cares if the hair is fine/blond/etc., because a mustache, beard, and Elvis sideburns are usually pretty noticeable.  Razors are a no-no (I don’t even have to tell you how BAD it is to use a RAZOR blade on your face), and although a depilatory can get the job done by removing hairs at the skin’s surface, hair still grows back rather quickly. Waxing removes hair at the roots.  Get those pesky hairs under control by either visiting a salon that specializes in waxing, or you can purchase a do-it-yourself kit from your favorite mass merchandise retailer (i.e. Target, Wal-Mart, etc.).

Nad’s Facial Wax Strips are gentle on the skin (hypoallergenic for those who have sensitive skin), contain natural beeswax, and are easy to use.  I have tried Nad’s before and appreciated the gel consistency of the wax, and the soothing wipes provided to treat skin before and after removing the unwanted hair. Nail care guru Sally Hansen now makes Facial Wax Strip Kits, and the company was savvy enough to include different sized strips for different facial needs (i.e. lip strips are small, while strips for large areas of the face are much larger).

I’ve heard women say that waxing hurts, and although pulling hairs off of your face is no walk in the park, the alternative (looking like Chewbacca) is ten times worse!

  1. Sallys did not work for me at all… I either go threading or get a professional wax… Have u tried threading?
