Different Types of Hair Removal Wax

Learn about the different types of hair removal wax from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of NYC) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


Okay so, there a definitely two different types of wax, but there’s a lot of different waxes so, for instance, if we just want to break it into two categories we break into the application of the wax. So, there’s a strip and a stripless wax. The strip wax has a muslin strip and what that is, you basically put the wax on the skin, then you take the muslin strip, you push it down tight to the skin, make sure the skin’s taut , and you pull it off in the opposite direction. The stripless wax is just like what you’re saying; usually it’s more of a taffy like and it’s a little bit thicker, use a little bit more of this and you put it on the skin and then make a little lip on the end so you have something to pull off and once again you stay close to the skin. A lotta times the stripless wax is used for more of the sensitive areas, whether it be the lip, the face, different areas of the bikini, the breast area. So, that’s what you should be looking for especially when you go to a spa, make sure that they’re utilizing at least two different types. Now the wax itself, that’s a whole nother thing, there’s different types of waxes. What’s the best, obviously, I think the Completely Bare wax is the best because it has the right amount of resin in there, it shrink wraps around the hair follicles, you don’t have to wait for it to grow out as much. Bbut there’s a lot different formulas out there on waxes, so it’s really up to you make the final decision on what you like.
