About my Products
Every product I use is carefully chosen to provide you with the best possible waxing experience.
Disinfectants excluded, the majority of the products I apply to the skin, could safely be ingested. If requested, only natural non-synthetic products will always be used.
I use products to reduce swelling, relieve pain, promote healing, lock in moisture, and of course, to remove hair.
Soothing and Prep Products
As a rule, If you can’t eat it, I don’t need it.

The active ingredient in Stridex pads is Salicylic acid (2%) which comes from the bark of White Willow trees, and is the only active ingredient in Aspirin (so edible). Making this effective at both relieving pain, and reducing swelling. It also unclogs pores, removes dirt / oil deep down, and helps prevent breakouts after waxing.
The Different Waxes
First of all, I only use Hard Wax, it’s applied directly to prepped skin, sets up, then is pulled off, taking the hair with it. It may need an oil as a base to protect the top layers of skin, which are no longer being nourished. As it cools it works like shrink wrap. It shrinks up tightening in on the hair, while shrinking away from the skin, leaving the skin in better condition, yet getting a good pull on shorter hair. Since hard wax doesn’t remove viable skin, the same area can be waxed over, and if needed, overlapping is no problem.
