With a few special events coming up this month, I had to make sure that Iwas well-groomed so I went for a little pampering down at the Honeypot Wax Boutique in Bangsar Shopping Center (KL) the other day.
While it wasn't my first time getting a Brazilian wax, it was the first time I was trying out a new salon in KL. I can be a bit picky when it comes to choosing a place because going to a regular spot to get waxed is just as important as getting a hair stylist you're comfortable with. It also helps to have a wax therapist that you're comfortable with and I try to stick to one so it doesn't feel awkward every time. Especially when it comes to Brazilian waxing.
The boutique is relatively new as it opened its doors last year in January 2010. The first one was opened in Singapore, followed by Jakarta, Bangkok and finally, Malaysia. Looks like more and more girls have discovered the benefits of waxing and ditched their razors!
The pink hard wax that was used smells delicious, like cherry bubblegum! It cools off fast and comes off easily so it's less painful compared to the super sticky type that can sometimes be harder to come off.
I had 3 wax services done that day:
1) Full Brazilian wax known as the 'Hollywood' (RM98)
2) Underarms (RM30)
3) Upper lip (RM12)
To see a full list of the services they provide, check out their quirky little site here.
You may have remembered that I did 6 sessions of Brazilian IPL and a few sessions for the underarms too back at FabulousTan (Singapore). Well it's been 5 months since my last session and while I don't have much fuzz growing out anymore, I still much prefer to wax those little bits of hair rather than shaving/tweezing it off.
Waxing also helps to strip off the dead cells and when followed with good exfoliation, leaves you silky, smooth skin. My secret is mixing raw honey with salt and using that as a body scrub. Honey really makes your skin soft and supple!
