I Dared to Get Whipped at Whipped Sugar Waxing and Scrub Salon

There's nothing I like more than trying out new things! For the past years and months, I've lived a pretty mundane life as a full time mom. I'm not making any excuse here, I love being a mom but motherhood perhaps is one of the reasons why I've fallen off the bandwagon. However, as cliche as it may sound I realized that being a mom should be the reason, and not an excuse for me not to feel good and look good. Remember the adage "Happy Wife. Happy Life"? It's true, when mommy/wife is happy everyone in the family benefits from it, right mommies? 

So, aiming to break the monotony, I've started working from home. To balance it out, I do blogging as a hobby and attend blog events for my social life where I get to meet people from all walks of life and through blogging I get to discover and try out new things, which is really fun! 

In line with this, few weeks ago I discovered Whipped Sugar Waxing and Scrub Salon and they dared me to change my usual hair removal habit into a sweet, fun and new concept; Sugaring or Sugar Waxing!

I get rid of unwanted hair through shaving but I also tried Hot Waxing once before so Sugar Waxing really sounds new and interesting! So I excitedly accepted the dare, scheduled an appointment and went to their branch at Alabang Town Center. They share store with Kitchenails.

Upon seeing their salon, I became more excited! It looks looks like a candy store, with the pastel colors and girly theme I thought to myself, the owner Ms. Bing Fabi,  must be very sweet and chic herself!

The staffs were also nice and accommodating, I was then taken into 1 of their 3 waxing room, it was actually 4 rooms but I guess they used the other one as a storage room. Each room was spacious enough, it has 1 single bed in it and a side table with some essentials, like alcohols, tissues and gloves. 

After asking which service I'll avail, ate Alyssa my sugaring technician left me in the room to prepare the sugar wax.

What is Sugar Wax made of?

Sugar wax is made of all natural food-grade ingredients mainly sugar, lemon juice and water. Sounds yummy right? Well aside from that, it is definitely a wise and green choice, it's safe for you and for the environment. Hot wax on the other hand are also made of natural ingredients like essential oils but also contains chemicals and preservatives that could be irritating especially to those who have sensitive skin. 

Aside from Sugaring, they also offer the following services:



The process: 

So I availed the brow and underarm sugaring. They started with brows which doesn't need shaping anymore since I already had it tattooed before. It only needs grooming, you see I honestly don't know anything with brows,  I don't know how to apply make up on it, I don't pluck it, I only have it shaved or threaded in salons. It's my first time to have it sugar waxed and surprisingly, it's least painful compared to threading, and probably plucking. The procedure for both my brows lasted for about 15 minutes only and the remaining small hairs were just plucked with tweezers.


Next was my underarm. Ate Alyssa noticed that the hair on my pits was thick and coarse she knew I was shaving it. I also have chicken skin which she said is the other negative effect of shaving. I also don't have a light/white underarm, which is probably caused by using different kinds of deodorant and maybe caused by pregnancy that's why I was happy when she said that sugaring has a lightening effect. (crossing my fingers on that lol) The underarm sugaring doesn't hurt at all and it lasted around 15 minutes as well. Afterwards she advised me not to wet my brows and underarm for the next 4 hours. 

Verdict:

I love it! Aside from the fact that it's made of all natural food-grade ingredients, sugaring is more gentle as it only attaches to the dead skin cells. Sugaring is also applied cold or at room temperature so its less likely to cause skin burning. It's also not sticky and if there are any wax residue left, it can easily be removed with water as it is water soluble. Most of all it's not really painful and although it might cause a mild redness or blister it subsides in no time. I also give my sugarist a thumbs up as she was very nice and conversational. Will I come back again? Surely I will and I'm excited to try out their other services especially the sweet treats!
