Stripped to the Wax!

Rating: 5/5

Many weeks ago, I went to Boracay but before I went, I got to do one of the things on my bucket list. Do not laugh. Okay, at least not to my face.

I got a Brazilian.

I was scared because many people say it hurts. Surprisingly though, it did not hurt as much as I thought it would. I guess it has to do with the two Advil pills that I popped one hour before turning myself in. I got my eyebrows threaded first before I went for my Brazilian. I liked how the Browhaus changed the shape of my brows. I need to pluck some stray hair now but the shape is still okay until now. I think I might go back to them and might stop going to Propaganda altogether.

Going back to the Brazilian.

I think the lack of the pain had much to do also with the technician or as they call them at The Strip: Ministry of Waxing, Striperella. She really knew what she was doing and because she knew it was my first time, she coached me in breathing and stuff. What I liked about their service is that they have a hygiene pack for each customer and they do not double dip on the wax. They use hard wax so that it is less painful. I know this because I have had experience with the soft wax for my tummy and really, it would have hurt like hell if this was used for my Brazilian.

I also had my underarms done and this was also pretty alright because they also used hard wax.

Granted that The Strip charges more, I would still go back to them for their services because they are hygienic and I am not going to risk going to other places if I am not going to be guaranteed no double dips.

If there is anything I did not like, it's the sheets. I know the sheets get replaced after each customer but I was kind of hoping they were disposable. I can feel the environmentalists stoning me. I am sorry but it really would be more hygienic. We can use recycled paper. :)

All in all, I really liked their services.
