Why Choose Wax over Razors?

It’s likely that you’ve been using razors for a long time, and this may have seemed like the best option for you at the time, but there are some real benefits to taking the time to explore the alternatives.

How to Correctly Remove Hair from a Bikini Line

In 1946, Louis Réard unveiled his “Bikini”, a two piece swim-suit that shocked not because of the height of the pant on the leg, but because it exposed the wearer’s navel! Named after the South Pacific atoll where the US were performing atomic bomb testing, these four triangles of material (totalling only 30cm²!) took the world by storm despite initial resistance. The need to remove hair from these newly exposed areas necessitated the creation of a new term: ‘the bikini line’, and something

Roll On Kits for Home Wax

Waxing used to mean one of two things – an expensive trip to the salon, or a wild experiment that could feature one or more of the following: a microwave, hot wax, an electric cauldron, hope, tears, and human sacrifice.

What is the Difference between Hot and Cold Wax?

When it comes to waxing, there are two distinct types: hot wax and a cold wax. The distinction between the two is fairly self-explanatory, as both types are made up of similar substances but are used for two different techniques.

In this method, either the wax solidifies and is pulled off in one piece, or a

What are Depilatory Creams and how do they Work?

A cream that simply removes hair without the hassle of shaving or having to clench your teeth through a wax, can seem too good to be true. The science behind them has been long perfected and depilatory creams offer a quick, convenient and safe way to remove unwanted hair at home.

Ingrown Hairs – How to Avoid Them?

Ingrown hairs (or pseudofolliculitis barbae if you’re feeling fancy) are unfortunately an accepted risk of all non-permanent hair removal methods. They occur when the hair follicle becomes blocked by dead skin cells, and as a result the hair begins to grow sideways, under the skin. This is particularly common if the hairs are curly, coarse, or have been recently shaved. Sometimes these hairs can even exit the skin, before curling over and re-entering it. You’ll notice when you have one of
