This festive season, go bare and hairless with Strip: Ministry of Waxing limited edition Cherry wax. Deep red in colour and and laced with a fruity scent, their new hard wax allows hair removal to be done with lesser tugging on the skin, thus making it suitable for sensitive skin and promises for a more comfortable Brazilian.
So, we decided to try it out for ourselves.
Strip’s Limited Edition Cherry Wax
A Brazilian essentially means all the hair from your pubic area gets removed (including your butt) – and it’s not as scary as the movies make it out to be. And don’t worry about awkwardness with your technician – my experience with Strip was friendly and comfortable as she kept the conversation light and put me at ease throughout the whole process.
I personally have a relatively high tolerance for pain and did not find the wax painful at all. Sure, it would sting for a hot second, but that would be the extent of it. I realise this may not be the general consensus, but as soon as the wax is tugged from the skin, it is pressed down with something cool to soothe the pain, making each strip of wax all the more bearable. The most painful section is the hair closest to the clitoris, as the hair there is usually more stubborn than the rest of the pubic area – i remember having to draw in a long deep breath before the technician ripped the wax off. As i have relatively dry and sensitive skin, the cherry wax was a great touch to my experience as it definitely suited my skin type needs.
Brazilian FAQs & Facts
- You need to have at least 6mm of hair on your pubic region before going in for a Brazilian, it’s important that the wax has something to grip onto for the removal of the hair.
- Brazilian means no hair at all, yes, that includes your butt too.
- No hot showers or swimming in pools 24 hours after your wax as the pores of your skin are very raw and open, which could lead to irritation and discomfort.
- It does hurt, but not as much as you think.
