Combat the Ladystache with Veet's High Precision Facial Wax

When it comes to hair removal I like it to be quick, affordable and easy. That it's painfree is also high on my wishlist, as utopian that it may sound. I like to use a mix of tweezing, shaving and waxing and I am continuously working on finding the best and least painful options on the market for hair removal. Thanks to Veet's extensive range of products, there is an option out there for all of us. 

A ladystache is never too charming, but they are incredibly easy to keep a secret. I will always remember this great scene in I Love Raymond where Ray comes home to find his wife's face slathered in hair removal cream. It's hilarious because it had been one of the secrets she had been keeping from him, but after three kids and a long marriage, the mystery had somehow faded ever so slightly. 
My newest waxing secret is the High Precision Facial Wax from Veet, which thanks to its almond oil is suitable for sensitive skin. You can use it on eye brows, the upper lip and the chin and it is very simple to use. In the pack which retails for $13.99 (but is on special at Priceline for $11.19 at the moment), you get a tube of wax, 20 paper strips and a precicion stick for trickier areas. It's good value considering the price of a lip wax is usually $15-$20.

Instructions:


1) Put the Precision Wax Tube in a mug of hot tap water for a minute. I am a wild-cat so I usually let it stay in for two minutes. It is recommended to do a skin test 24 hours before to avoid an allergic reaction but I usually skip this process because I'm too impatient. You know your skin best so if you feel like you might react, do a skin test just to be sure.

2) Cleanse your face and make sure that it's free of any oils and irritants. I like to use the Akin Creamy Cleanser + Toner because it is so soothing and gentle and I know it won't irritate my skin before waxing.

3) Apply a thin layer of the wax to the area of business. It's better to have a thin layer and wax the area twice, rather than having a thick layer that won't be effective.

4) Apply a paper strip and smooth it down a couple of times.

5) Hold the skin firmly and remove the strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth.

6) After a successful waxing session (which takes less than five minutes including the warm-up time), I apply a mix of Pure Fiji's Dilo Oil and Sukin's Rosehip Oil which assists the healing and soothing process.

7) Take a fifteen minute nap if time permits. If not, have some me-time with a magazine or just hide whilst the redness goes down. The oils make the redness less visible immediately but there is also something to be said for a good Mineral Powder that can minimise the appearance of redness whilst also being good skin food. 
Remember to not wax before an important date or a meeting, it's better to do it on a week-night when your dinner is baking in the oven and your onesie is waiting for you. Never wax in a rush.

Do you have any waxing tips or woes? 

P.S. Your secret is safe with me.

  2. So glad you blogged about this! I've been looking at getting an IPL treatment course with this company here http://www.londonpremierlaser.co.uk but then I was reading on so many blogs that basically IPL is bullsh*t and ineffective (and that clinic actually confirmed that), but now I'm tempted to try this and other products again? I just dont know what to dooooooo :(

    1. Hi Miss!

      I don't think IPL is BS but I think it truly depends on the person whether it will work or not work. Some people are lucky and have minimal hair growth whereas others have more and it will take more rounds of IPL to get the hair to go away. There is unfortunately never a guarantee that the hair will go away forever, whereas with waxing the hair that comes back is usually lighter and less course which leads to having to remove hair less often which is a win for everyone.

      Good luck lovely x
