Bikini Waxing for Sensitive Skin - Don't Get Burned

I recently had a pricey wax done at a famous five star salon here in New York. If you read my blogs you'll know I typically do my own waxing because I don't trust double dippers... but this salon assured me that they follow the strictest hygienic protocol since they are a medical spa facility.

Ahhh... protect skin and keep
Clients coming back!
Little did I know, double dipping should have been the LEAST of my concerns. I should have run out of there as soon as I noticed the tech did not even bother to prep my skin. She went straight into the service with strip wax on my bikini area and started ripping. I winced in agony and could feel the burn of my fragile skin and asked, "Aren't you going to apply pre wax oil?" She said, "No, we don't do that here!". Oh my goodness... 15 minutes later my French Cut bikini wax looked more like French Fried! In between my legs were two, pink, pork chop sized burns from a rough waxing procedure with no prep. Argh! And I was leaving for Aruba in the morning!

My skin has become conditioned to a natural oil prep. The oil helps to protect the skin so the wax pulls up only the coarse hair, not the skin.  So despite their fancy blend of red currant and berry wax, without a conditioning prep, my skin took weeks to heal and I spent my vacation in a muu muu.
Take the pain out
of Waxing

I can't say enough about the quality, integrity and effectiveness of Mancine waxes for clients like me with ultra sensitive skin. Their Pre-Wax Prepatory Oil is one of the best I tried. Brazilian Strawberry or Vanilla Flexxx waxes are also exceptional... and I have tried a countless number of professional waxes.  I told the esthetician I was incredibly sensitive... a patch test should have been performed.

Try prepping your client.  See what a difference it makes in their comfort, efficiency and removal!

Why I love Brazilian Strawberry Flexxx Wax by Mancine


"Unicorn Wax"
I never thought a wax
this good existed!
Finding the perfect wax for myself has become quite the research journey.  I have tried countless numbers of wax brands and formulas available here at PureSpa.com - from all over the world to review.  My quest has always been to find something that does not tear up my fragile skin, feels comfortable, is low temperature, smells nice and has a soft, creamy texture (not stringy), that is easily malleable for extra control and detail. For years I thought I was seeking the unicorn of waxes because those qualities did not seem to exist in one product or brand.  Most of the waxes I tried hurt like hell, ripped my hair (didn't grab the root), were too strong or left heat irritation on my skin because I could not get the temperature right.
Blow away your clients...
Let them experience Mancine

This all changed two months ago when I took home a giant tub of Mancine Brazilian Strawberry Ultra Flexxx.  I admit, I expected nothing from this wax and was reasonably satisfied with my Ciripil Vegetal wax for the last few years. I wanted to try Brazilian Strawberry simply because spas and salons from across the country called us up at Pure Spa constantly RAVING about it and demanding it.  SO my curiosity led the quest, and my waxing trial began.  I plopped the giant 2.2 lb tub into my Spa Masters Double Wax Warmer. Now, I was not very optimistic about it heating evenly because the tub is considerably taller than a traditional wax can.  I flipped on the unit, set it to medium heat and waited about 25 minutes.  The wax had warmed to a comfortable temperature and when I stirred it up. I was surprised at it's ultra creamy, luscious texture.  It also had the most delicious scent... it was light and not overwhelming. It was like fresh strawberries collided with cotton candy... it looked and smelled amazing I was dying to get started.

Here is what I love the best for bikini and leg waxing:

1) Ultra low melting point means it's ready to go without having to be the temperature of the sun.
2) Has a unique plastic like texture that has a powerful grip WITHOUT cringing in pain.
3) It was astonishingly comfortable for removing hair on ultra sensitive areas.
4) Gentle formula reduced redness - I had none! This was an absolute first for me.
5) Contains hypo-allergenic properties.
6) Pampering texture. Super easy to manipulate.
7) Smells freaking delicious. Does not smell like air freshener strawberry... It smells luxurious!
8) A little wax goes a long way. Efficiency is a great plus for maximizing profits!
9) No bumps, lumps or irritation was visible post bikini and leg wax. That is amazing for my fragile skin.
10) No stringy mess! Gosh I love not leaving a stringy wax trail all over my warmer & floor!

Just a note; I DID use the Mancine Pre-Wax Oil too.  Also superb, The Mancine Ultimate Finish Post Wax Oil  was exceptionally good and removing any tiny clinging wax bits at lightening speed!

Mancine is sold exclusively to licensed estheticians, waxing centers, salons & day spa owners and licensed cosmetologists.
