Waxing: Is it worth the pain?

Okay, so I was searching thru when I came across this product called Strip It All Natural Ready to Use Cold Hair Wax Remover (whew, that was a mouthful!). It caught my attention because of two things: One,because it's made out of natural ingredients, and two, because it's a bit cheaper compared to Epillin, which is locally available at Watsons and other drugstore outlets. I have been reading bits of info on waxing at GT and on the Internet and since then I became very interested with it because I was into shaving from the day I found out on what a razor can do. So I purchased the 150g trial tub of the said product and tried it on my underarms and on the hair growing on top of my fingers. Here is what I can say about it.

Product Description:

Strip Tease wax comes ready to use. No heating, no mixing, no irritating smell…no mess. It is made from all natural ingredients so it is safe to use for your entire body including sensitive areas such as face and bikini lines. With waxing, hair takes longer time to regrow because hair is removed from the roots. Waxing slowly reduces the growth of hair, so the more often you wax; hair regrowth will appear much sparser, softer and finer textured.

Waxing exfoliates the skin while removing hair; dead skin cells and impurities are removed, thus leaving skin soft, smooth and clean. Strip Tease wax is completely water-soluble, so it rinses away instantly with water.

The best part about being able to wax yourself is that you can do it in the comfort of your own home; and if you’re prone to shaving in times of emergency, once you learn how to wax yourself you will not have to touch a razor ever again! So start right now and discover the beauty of waxing with Strip Tease wax. Satisfaction guaranteed!

  • It's cold wax, therefore, there's no heating required, unlike Epillin.

  • It comes with a spatula and cloth strips that you could use to put on wax and to take out hair from wherever you wanna remove it.

  • It takes out hair just as good as Epillin would.

  • It is made out of natural ingredients, hence there are less chances of getting skin irritations after.

  • It only costs Php 160.00 (approx $3.34) for a 150g tub which will last you for quite a long period of time, if will be used on small areas.


  • It is not available at drugstores like Watsons or Mercury Drug. I purchased mine at Ebay, and I think you could see this being sold at Bazaars only.

  • Since it's made out of honey and brown sugar, it attracts ants, so be careful with storage.

  • If you're a newbie with waxing (just like me), it may take some time before you get used to the pain of pulling hair from within. So taking an Advil or any brand of Mefenamic Acid 30 to 45mins before waxing may be a very important tool for you, especially if you have a very low threshold for pain.

Will I repurchase?

Yes, until the day comes when I learn to make my very own homemade wax. ^_^
