Some Great Tips to Ensure You Have a Great Wax!
Let it grow
Don’t even think about booking an appointment unless you’ve gone 1-2 weeks without shaving or waxing and have at least ¼ inch of hair. Patience is a virtue – waxing may be painful and not as effective if you haven’t waited long enough!
On the day of your appointment, exfoliate really well in the shower to loosen up dead skin and lift trapped hairs. You can do this a few different ways by using our favorite Decleor Body Scrub. Take 10% off this product when booking any waxing service. Shipping options available.
Consider pain relief
A half hour before your appointment, try taking an over-the-counter pain reliever like Tylenol or Advil – it should kick in right about the time your waxing session starts and ease any discomfort. Another option we highly suggest is to use a numbing cream like our No Scream Cream 30 minutes before your appointment. Take 10% off this product when booking any waxing service.

Soothe the burn
Use the No Trauma Mama cream because it’s antibacterial and also has triclosan to prevent inflammation and infection post-wax. Take 10% off this product when booking any waxing service. Shipping options available.
Don’t sunbathe or exercise right after your wax – your skin needs time to calm down after its “trauma” and sweat and the heat of the sun won’t help!
