I’ve never been one for waxing salons. My past experiences getting my bikini line done were painful and always resulted in bumps and irritation. And as far as the rest of my body went, I was perfectly content with just shaving.
That all changed with European Wax Center®. One of my editor friends swears by them, so when POPSUGAR asked me to put them to the test, it was game on. It is summer after all!
Plus, get this, first-time guests get a complimentary wax! Ladies have the choice between getting their brow, underarm or bikini line done. Guys can choose from an ear, nose or brow wax. Some restrictions apply so visit waxcenter.com for complete details.
Since I was a first-time guest and I was reviewing the experience, I thought I would give my bikini one last try. If they could conquer my sensitivity and deliver a hair-free comfortable line it would be a miracle. I also had my legs done.
Oh-my-gawd! Walking out of that salon, I felt like a new woman. It’s been five days since my reservation and my legs are so smooth! It feels so empowering and sexy having such soft, hair-free legs. I just want to prance around in mini skirts and sundresses! I don’t know why I thought shaving was so much more convenient. My hair grows so fast and I inevitably have some weird patch I missed. With waxing, the hair grows so much slower since you’re pulling out the follicle and lasts 3-4 weeks.
What makes European Wax Center® so unique and special, is their exclusive 4 Steps to Gorgeous™ process featuring their superior product line to create the most comfortable, and effective experience possible.
1) CLEANSE: Their pre-wax cleanser removes makeup, oil and lotion from your skin.
2) PROTECT: Next, they apply a pre-wax oil to ensure the wax adheres to pesky hairs and not your skin.
3) GET YOUR WAX ON: Using their exclusive stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, they gently remove the hair for a virtually painless experience.
4) REJUVENATE: Last, they pamper your skin with either their Ingrown Hair Serum (for body) or Calming Cream (for face). It also helps soothe any redness.
Let’s go back to the pain part. For my legs, I was completely comfortable the whole time and it didn’t hurt at all. As for my bikini, it wasn’t pleasant but, on a pain level, it was by far the most tolerable bikini wax I’ve ever received. And it will only get better. The more regularly you get waxed the easier and less painful it becomes since the hair grows back finer. Everything is smooth and irritation-free which I 100% attribute to whatever is in their 4-step program. I’m completely hooked and their prices are really affordable, so committing to going monthly, especially in the summer months, is easy.
