Lay Bare Waxing Salon Experience

Most Filipina women get rid of unwanted hair (especially underarm hair) by plucking or shaving and to tell you honestly I do both. As we all know both plucking and shaving will cause darker skin and the unwanted "chicken skin". Another option is waxing but everyone is afraid of the "pain" of this procedure. I've always wanted to try waxing but i'm worried that I can't handle the pain! Just hearing the term 'waxing' is like a nightmare!

During the recently concluded blogapalooza (read my post here), Lay Bare Waxing Salon was one of presenters. They explained the benefits of waxing in a very creative way and changed the notion that waxing is synonymous to pain. Included in our loot bag was a kit from Lay Bare with a free bikini wax gift certificate. So I was convinced to try waxing!

Last Wednesday I summoned up all my courage and decided to visit their branch in Better living Paranaque. I was greeted by their friendly staffs. I asked permission to take some photos inside and outside the salon. I also told them that It was my first time to try waxing so I have no idea what will happen! HAHA! Originally, I only want to avail the under arm waxing but since I have the GC the staffs told me why not to try bikini wax as well. I was very hesitant at first but they assured me that I won't regret it at the pain is tolerable.

 They have a lot of cubicles so I think it is very rare that you still need wait for your turn.
 I like the simple asian/zen feel of the interiors of the salon. The cozy feel made me feel so at ease.
Inside each cubicle is a bed with clean sheets and towels. The room is very private and clean

Lay Bare use cold wax instead of the traditional hot wax which decreases the trauma/pain especially for first timers.

They also sell Human Nature products in the salon!

And for my experience, I didn't feel that much pain in the under arm waxing and as for the bikini wax I can say that it is very tolerable . It is not completely painless but I assure you it's not as painful as it sounds.  'Ate' (my attendant ) was telling me some facts about waxing while doing the procedure. She also told me that a lot of guys undergo waxing! I was surprised to know that! I realized that bikini waxing is really hygienic and not only for "swimsuit purposes". Both procedures are really quick so don't think that you will suffer for a long time. My attendant also told me the do's and dont's after waxing like not to wet the area for 4-6 hours. She also advised me when should I go back to the salon.

I will surely go back to Lay Bare! I am very happy that I tried waxing. I am now waving good bye to tweezers and razors and say hi to better skin! Thank you Lay Bare for making waxing very convenient and affordable!
