Sugaring or sugar waxing is a hair removal method similar to waxing. The only difference is that sugar waxing uses a sugaring paste which can be applied to the skin on room temperature, unlike with waxing that uses hot/warm wax.
I dropped by the Forbestown Road branch for my first visit. My appointment was for a eyebrow and underarm waxing. I’m not new with sugar waxing. I’ve been sugar waxing my pits and legs for 2 years now. I typically do it myself, I just buy those sugar wax kit sold online. I think that sugar waxing is less painful than normal waxing.
I was ushered to a private small room where the waxing will take place. Ate was really gentle and coached me through the process. It took her a while to do my eyebrows because I have tiny stray hairs that recently had grown, and she took the time to make sure to get all of those hairs. It was much tolerable in comparison to threading.
The underarm waxing process went real quick. The skin on my underarms are used to it so it was easy breezy. After waxing, Ate placed some soothing cream and told me not to put anything for around 8 hours.
Overall, my experience at Whipped was satisfactory. Bonus point that their salon has a really nice ambiance. I’ll try their scrubs on my next visit (hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze it in my schedule, with my wedding prep and work training). For those trying out sugar waxing for the first time, I suggest you go visit Whipped to make your first experience a good one for they’ll really take care of you. #daretogetWhipped 😉
