My First Experience With Self Waxing

Hey loves! First of all – I can’t believe I haven’t written a blog post since February. What the… But I’m back and I will be posting way more often from now on. I must say though I have been hella busy working on my Marketing business and keeping my clients happy so a girl had to focus. I’ve also been working on collaborating with some very cool brands and I’m very excited to say I have quite a few coming up that I will share with you in the coming days/ weeks!

In this post I will be reviewing the Luxury Home Sugar Paste that I was kindly gifted by the Sugaring Factory LLC. Brace yourself because it’s going to be a personal self care one.

Now let me back track a little and update you on my hair removal journey. My first hair removal choice used to be shaving with a razor but most ladies can agree when I say razors are the devil! I hate them and only use them when I’m in a rush and need to get smooth fast! (You know those unexpected beach/ pool runs or throwing on that short dress last minute). By using a razor came those pesky razor bumps and in grown hairs so I resorted to hair removal creams. I don’t particularly like these creams either so I was using them grudgingly.

I don’t know if women of other races struggle with this issue as much but as a black woman, our hair grows back so thick it takes nothing for those in grown hairs to show up so I was extremely happy to try this sugaring method instead, as I’ve heard waxing helps with this problem when done often enough.

A little about sugar waxing:

Sugaring is one of the safest and most painless ways to remove unwanted hair, and is perfect for delicate and sensitive areas like the bikini area and underarms. You can also use it on other body parts such as the arms, legs and face! If you’re also shy to go get your waxing done you can sugar wax at home by yourself. So yes, I was sold on how convenient this product is. They have 3 types of pastes to choose from; Soft, for waxing strips, medium (that’s the one I received) and hard for thick hair.

The Process:

My first thought was this stuff is freaking hard to handle! I mean I expected the product to be a bit sticky but it was VERY sticky and for someone who has never done sugaring before it takes some effort to handle how gooey it is. It has a very mild smell. Almost scentless but a very natural, honey/ syrupy smell. That’s as close as I can get to explaining it. I actually liked that about it.

I tried using latex gloves at first to apply it but that wasn’t a good idea. Neither was using my bare hands because it kept sticking too much (if you want to try it and can deal with all the goo on your hands that’s fine). So I ended up actually following the instructions and got nitrile gloves from the pharmacy.

Results:

This stuff really takes the hair out. I have thick, coarse hair body and it got rid of most of the hair wherever I applied it – quite smoothly too. I had to pay attention and remove it in the proper direction that the hair grows though.That makes the process much easier. Bottom-line I really liked the results.

What I did after I sugar waxed :


I rubbed on Ari Bump Gone antiseptic balm on the areas I would normally get razor bumps ( just in case I had a similar reaction). I then moisturized with my Clinique dramatically different moisturizer. About a day after I exfoliated with my Turmeric and lime scrub from Earth Elements. I had to wear loose clothing a day or two after. I think that’s import because bumps and ingrown hairs are usually caused or made worse by friction so loose clothing helps guys!

Overall, I have to be honest, I don’t think I will be going back to using hair removal creams or razors. The only issue I had was the slight pain I experienced in removing the waxed hair which is to be expected. And I was in the privacy of my bathroom so I could scream or cuss as much as I wanted without a care in the world. If you’ll be trying this product just ensure to read and follow the instructions and you’re good.

  1. I use Alexandria Professional Sugar Paste but it’s done by a professional. The technique makes the difference in the application and removal which causes much less discomfort. I’m from Trinidad.

  2. To be honest, I am still using my razor since I was too shy to try something new. But your experience sounds so good! Just didn’t know that you need extra gloves, antiseptic balm etc. etc. You see, I am rather inexperienced 🙂 Thank you for sharing this!

    1. Glad you found it helpful! I personally don’t like using my hands to apply the product but some people do. You could also use an applicator of some sort if you cant get those gloves too, whichever you’re comfortable using. I also use the anti-septic balm as a personal preference because of my previous experience with hair removal so it’s not a must 🙂
