The Hit List

What’s the Best Wax/Hair Remover that you’ve tried?

Share your pick!  And don’t forget to share why :)  Thanks to Stacey for today’s question!

I absolutely love Moom! That’s my go-to! I love that it dissolves in water, so you never have to worry about the product getting stuck forever, LOL!

    Love MOOM!!

    It works great, especially after being warmed a bit in the microwave. And t is so non-smelly and quick and easy and painless that I use it as often as I should. Being blonde has made me lazy and very bad in this area of “hygiene.” I’ve been known to wear pants to get around doing my legs for another day!

    I really love the Sally Hansen Ouch-Free Wax strips! They come with medicated wipes to reduce pain – but I don’t use those because I don’t find waxing overly painful. What I like is that the wax strips in this kit are ALL large, body sized strips. Most other waxing strip kits have small, large, and medium sized strips, but I only need large strips for body waxing. They work really well and you can see it gets the hair from the root. You just warm them up between your hands. I get them at ULTA, often on sale or use the $3.50 coupons Ulta sends.

    I also like the Parissa sugar wax that is microwaveable and comes with washable strips – however I find that to be a lot messier and time consuming to keep the wax at the right temperature compared to the Sally Hansen strips.

    Also I love Paula Begoun’s CLINICAL Redness Relief toner for applying pre- and post- hair removal, or even laser treatments, to prevent and reduce redness!

    • Where can you get the toner? I want to try the Sally Hansen one you mentioned but I never had a wax in my lady parts because I’m so sensitive and have 0 tolerance for pain :(

    OMG the Veet wax strips changed my life! I am a hairy girl and these actually work, I use the face strips for my ‘stache & cheek hairs/sideburns and the body strips for my hairs. It takes a bit of practice though but the face strips save me money & time from the salon. My legs also stayed hairless for quite a few days but when they grow back that is the part that sucks, grows back kind of uneven so I have to wait until all of the hairs on my leg are long enough to wax. Good thing I’m married and my husband doesn’t mind, haha!

    I don’t wax. I do like Nair Face cream for getting rid of upper lip hair.

    I have a Braun epilator, that also has an interchangeable electric shaver head. I don’t like chemical removers (too many bad experiences), and waxing has to be done pretty much all at once. With an epilator, I can just do smaller areas at a time, if I choose. For lazier/busier days, I just change it to an electric shaver. The only negative is that it doesn’t work while plugged in, so I have to be sure it’s fully charged. It’s also supposed to be Wet/Dry, but I haven’t tried it wet.

  6. I need to check out this Moom!

    I have been using depileve monoi of tahiti lately. It’s a hot wax but melts at a low temperature. It’s the easiest to use in “those” areas.

  8. Stella

    Am I the only one who doesn’t wax and never has, and is a minimalist when it comes to hair removal in general? I just trim my bikini area (periodically) and shave legs/armpits (dailyish).

    Nads brand wax strips are pretty darned effective. However, I wish there were an in-between size. There are small facial ones, and large body ones. One in-between would bet a lot less scary in certain…ahem…places.

    I’ve used an epilator on my legs for a few years. It’s not for everyone, but for me it’s been great. Saves money over salon waxing and I can do it at home without an appointment. My hair is thinning from this so I can do it less often. It is important to exfoliate at least once a week to prevent ingrowns. I do this with a St. Ives scrub.
