Chronicles of Wax: Strip It Chocolate Sugaring

Back in 2011, I swore to myself that I would never ever DIY my wax ever again. It was that time that I was using some wax I never bothered to blog about it because of my painful experience. It was revived when I discovered honey wax and now, with Strip It's Chocolate Sugaring wax which doesn't need heat.

The pot of wax above was a gift from Strip It's Arlette Alvarado, after she found out I was the first customer who bought via Shopinas. I bought a tub of the original Strip It wax after I heard from friends that it didn't need microwave nuking.

With waxing *less chicken skin *hair grows 1-4 weeks *promotes skin lightening SAFE TO USE ON ANY PART OF THE BODY : face , legs, underarms, bikini line or even Brazilian waxing! Since its made up of natural ingredients, you don't have to worry about any allergic reactions. Plus its easy to rinse out because the wax is water soluble. Has 50% less pain compared to other waxes.

I'd been taking down notes on both the original and chocolate sugaring wax and here are my observations so far:

  1. I had only used it without heating and so far, so good. Applying it in small amounts is key. It may take the entire cloth strip {all of it} though to remove leg hair.
  2. Cold vs. Hot wax: Understandably, it takes longer time to remove hair versus when wax is heated. 
  3. Space. Navigating the world of sticky unheated wax requires physical space to stretch your arms when the wax won't break away.
  4. Patience. One needs a little more patience than necessary when DIY waxing. Aside from not being a pro {unless you are, of course}, it can take several errors to get things right, no matter how long you've been doing things. My patience {on myself} was heavily challenged as I tried waxing my legs one Monday morning. 
  5. Price. I remember that the big tub of wax was a little less than Php 500 and that it included reusable waxing strips and stick. I like that part.
  6. Packaging. Unlike my other waxing favorite, I am not a big fan of the packaging. 
  7. For some reason, the original sugaring wax seems to perform better than the chocolate one but hey, maybe that's just me.

Overall  recommendation: If you have the patience of a padawan, this is perfect for you. It doesn't guarantee quick results but like any journey in life, I promise you will get there.
