With shugaring I know for a long time and tightly, starting from making home “cocks” to regular visits to a qualified master.
A lyrical digression on my history of acquaintance with shugaring
In 2015, climbing the Internet, I came across an interesting word “shugaring”. I am very impressed with the results, especially the shaving of the hair. Found many homemade recipes and the basis is sugar, water and citric acid. For homemade sugar paste takes very little money, but you can always get the desired consistency if you do not respect the proportions.
In general I transferred a kilogram of sugar, but still made myself a magical potion I started experiments immediately in the bikini area. I barely got a pubis, and (excuse the details) labia and then I decided not to touch.Then came the underarms and legs.
I was quite impressed with the result, but the procedure for cooking the paste is not at all. So I decided to buy the disgusting paste firm “Gloria” and was disastrously disappointed in home epilation.
A couple of months later I went to the master of shugaring and only then felt all the charms shugaring, but the first time it was an unbearable pain to pull the hair, since after a razor, they were insanely hard, thick and broke often. After 3 or 4 sessions the hairs grew less, lighter and finer. Beauty! And in fact I went to the master for 4 years to a deep bikini, on the legs and underarms at the poor student did not have enough money, so again came to the aid of a razor.
And then, standing in line at the store, accidentally saw this paste for shugaring.
The first thing that caught my eye was ! This is really pennies, given that 100g of paste Gloria 4 years ago cost 1000.
I thought about it, came home and decided to read the reviews, but oooh there were none! The only thing I found on the Internet was a social networking site.Caramelka product store page. I found out that it is produced by IP “Ibrahim” in the city of Almaty, which is in my country, Kazakhstan
On this basis, I decided that it is not 1000 and the volume is 5 times greater than Gloria (inner Jew rejoiced and was not mistaken)
On the jar is written instructions for use, the date of manufacture, expiration date and place of production
Medium density paste, suitable for epilation of bikini, underarms and legs. Looks nice, easy to grasp and rolls into a ball
I decided to start my session in the bikini area. I’ve forgotten how to do it on my own, but it went really well! The hairs were not growing so thick anymore, so it was easy and simple to remove.
When I was done with my bikini, I started to grow my armpit hair so I could remove it safely. It took about a week to grow out and this is what they looked like
Got my hair fighting kit all ready to go. It includes:
- Baby powder (you can use talcum powder)
- Wet wipes
Sprinkled talcum powder to remove excess moisture and applied the paste to the entire armpit from top to bottom and with a sharp tug ripped off. Wiped with chlorhexidine, then I applied a soothing skin cream. The next morning the redness was gone and a couple of weeks of perfect smoothness ahead!
And now let’s talk about the frugality of this wonderful paste!
In a jar we have 550 grams and it costs 255 (here and below the in rubles, not tenge, to the Russian readers was easy to orient. To get the price in tenge you need to multiply by 6)
One hair removal ball weighs about 10 grams (maybe even less, I took a bigger one to make it easy to count) and costs only 5!
Now let’s calculate the cost per treatment
- Underarms.One ball is enough, so
- Bikini.On a deep bikini I had 4 balls of sugar paste, from here
- Feet.On both legs from shin to belt me enoughe8 balls, respectively
- TOTAL 65
- With this use, the jar is enough for me for 4-5 times, depending on how much hair initially
