Dare to bare with Wax XXX

Wednesday, September 12, 2012
The other day, thanks to an invitation from fellow blogger Catherine, Tbts + Aki and I went for our Brazilian waxing appointment at Beauty Affairs (27 Purvis Street #01-02, Singapore 188604) together. We had lunch at KFC at Bugis before heading over. The place was relatively easy to find, it's just the lane behind Bras Basah (did i spell it right?) which is next to NLB. Along the lane where Naumi Hotel is, and it's right next to Kiliney Kopitiam at Purvis Street.



$28 Brazilian/Boyzilian, anyone?

You guys probably already know about my love for chandeliers..

So, what is Wax XXX?

Wax XXX is the brand of waxes and aftercare products that are suitable to be used for areas that have just been, well, waxed. The 3 X's in XXX actually stands for the following, which is somewhat their brand's belief.
Xtra Strong - This strong wax made from rosin glides into the hairs and unto the skin, giving firm grip and clean lift to remove all hairs
Xtra Smooth - The lanolin in the wax protects the skin after the life off, leaving the skin supple and smooth.
Xtra Strong - With WAX XXX, the re-growth is softer and lesser, usually takes from 4~6 weeks to grow back.

There are 3 types of waxes produced by Wax XXX, which I sadly forgot to take a picture of, however I shall still list them out for you.
Perfect Blue: Suitable for use on very long hair in all areas. Quick to dry and does not break or become brittle when dry.
Perfect Pink: This was the wax that I saw being used. Formulated with titanium oxide, an anti-irritant which also protects from UV rays, the creamy texture forms a flexible application that allows for gentle removal. Most suitable for short corase hairs, for use on face, underarms, bikini areas, and brazilian.
Perfect White: Aromatherapy wax formulated with the scent of the rose. Recommended for short and stubby hairs.
Wax XXX produces Hard Wax, which is the kind that doesn't need the strip to be placed to remove the hairs from the selected area, since it dries and encapsulates the hair strands, making it a better choice for delicate areas like your V-zone.

I chose to do a Brazilian waxing because I had already gotten it done before and the pain wasn't really too daunting.
The waxing area was a cosy room, with 2 beds on either side, and I was provided with a robe to change into. My therapist first applied a layer of oil to create a protective barrier for the skin, preparing the skin for waxing and easy release of the hair and wax (it was also apply afterwards to remove any residue)
I really like how professional my theraphist was, asking if the wax was too hot and letting me know prior waxing the hair off from the more delicate parts. Also, there was never a need for my therapist to place the wax in the same area more than twice, which reduces the chance of irriation even more. After the treatment ended, my therapist removed any residue with a layer of lavender/jasmine oil as well as patted some lotion to soothe the area. Will definitely recommend it to any first timers who are afraid of the pain because it was really tolerable! Aki was also a first timer but she also went passed it was a breeze~
