Honeypot's Hollywood Glam Waxing Party + Giveaway


One of the best ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair is by waxing. Waxing removes hair from the roots, unlike shaving which only removes hair from the surface. Normally after waxing, it can last from 3 to 6 weeks depending on the individual.

Why Wax?
1. Waxing removes all of your hair for a longer period of time.
2. It doesn't irritate your skin as much.
3. It leaves your skin feeling smoother.
4. Over time, waxing can reduce hair growth.
5. If done correctly, it will result in fewer in-grown hairs, which means it's not itchy!
6. No razor bumps, rashes, cuts or infections which you get with shaving.
7. Waxing is more hygienic and makes you feel fab!

Getting half of my leg waxed. The best time to wax is when the hair is about more than 5mm long, so that the hair is able to stick to the wax and removed easily. It is also best to avoid waxing during your three days prior and during menstruation as the skin is most sensitive during this period and more susceptible to pain.

Here are the waxing procedure that Honeypot has done:
1. Cleanse - A pre-treatment step to cleanse and sanitize the skin.
2. Powder - Baby powder is applied on the area which to absorb excess moisture and also help the wax to stick more to the hair than the skin.
3. Waxing - Honeypot's therapist are well trained and experience to ensure a professional waxing service. Didn't feel much pain as well which was great :)
4. Cleanse - A final cleansing to make sure there is no wax residue.
5. Moisturize - To reduce irritation and sooth the skin after waxing as dead skin is removed.

It is also essential that there is no direct heat contact on the skin for 24 hours (eg: hot water) as it can irritate the new skin and open up the pores, which we don't want that to happen.

Honeypot also sells their products in the boutique which you can use it for aftercare waxing treatment or you can buy their wax products to DIY at home :)
