Being “balbon”/Hairy all these years made me appreciate the feeling of newly waxed and shave skin because It feels LIBERATING. The endless questions from others asking how does it feel and does it become thicker after. Well to answer the last question it depends on your hair (hormones). For me in a span of 2 weeks my eyebrows start to become bushy (after threading). Getting hot waxed for my legs would take a month for it to start growing.
For me it is essential to feel hairless because it makes me happy (That is the important thing, what makes you happy and its your money right?) . But a tip, once you’ve start doing it you have to maintain it. It’s all hardwork being a woman.
Its a new venture for me to be a brand ambassador for whipped and get to blog their services for a year, I’ve tried the sugar waxing for the eyebrows, hands and legs. Caramel scrubbin’ for the underarms too 🙂
Sugar waxing is painless but prepare for the shock but that would be normal for the first, but as it goes on you don’t mind. My brows started to grow after 2 weeks as expected for me since I am very balbon and got thick hair. For the arms it took a month for it to grow but for my legs I started to notice it takes less than a month unlike my usual.
The caramel scrubbin’, you won’t get to appreciate it at first, yes my underarms lightened a bit but I think it has to be continuous and need to consistent with this regime. The caramel scrubbin’ has whitening effects as said. I always like a good scrub with a pleasing aromatic scent. Just keep in mind we all vary with different skin types, it may be hiyang for some and others. The good thing with whipped they use all natural products and the price range is affordable for middle class.

So before I packed my bags, I never missed out the chance to visit and get mymonthly sessions with KitchenNails. The reasons why I keep on coming back because the place is accessible – heart of Quezon City, Trinoma (Near the gym I go to). The price is affordable for middle class and I get to bring friends over. The place is very relaxing and the interior is pleasing plus the place smells good. Then the nail specialists are very accommodating and they really take their time.
