Wax On, Wax Off: Do-It-Yourself Bikini Waxes

January 28, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby
shefinds | Style

It may not be swimsuit season yet, but we know that a well-groomed bikini line is a year-round must. Since you don't always have the time or money to visit your trusted salon's mistress of torture – ahem, depilation expert – sometimes you've got to take matters into your own hands. Below, we compare a few of the home hair removal options out there to get you the smoothest skin with the least mess. 

What: Surgi-Wax Brazilian Waxing Kit ($4.73), Sally Hansen Brazilian Waxing & Shaping Kit ($11.86), and Nad's No-Heat Hair Removal Gel ($14.99).

I'll let you in on an inconvenient truth, ladies: all these products are going to hurt when they come off. Nonetheless, they're all time-tried by me (your shaggy, long-suffering home waxing expert). So the question of which wax you choose to use comes down to the details. Surgi-Wax and Sally Hansen feature a tub of solid wax that liquifies as you heat in the microwave. This is good because when you tear the cooled, hardened wax off your skin, it's going to take everything on there with it. On the downside, the wax also cools in its tub, and so may require reheating during the process. If that doesn't suit your fancy, try Nads which uses a sticky, sugar-based gel that grips hair at room temp. But then again, Nads relies on reusable muslin strips to remove the wax (meaning you could run out mid-depilation–yikes!), and it's darned sticky (think of honey…everywhere).  

Winner: Sally Hansen Brazilian Waxing Kit 

kit  

Why: With its tiny trimming scissors, mini-mirror, and extra-strength wax, this kit gives you the closest thing to salon results you can expect at home. If you follow detailed directions, you'll be able to effectively tidy up even the most hidden, hardest to reach places. And Sally Hansen has a complete line of hair removal products to clean up your legs, armpits, face, or elsewhere, so you can trust that they'll have what you need.

Get yours: $11.86 at Amazon.com  

SheFinds hints for happy waxing: be sure to apply the wax thickly, focus on small areas, hold your skin taut, and exhale as you rip it off. So go ahead and try it–you'll save time and money, and enjoy weeks of salon-smooth skin!
