I love travelling to different places, love to explore the history, their traditions and customs, language, food and of course makeup! But at the same time, I do miss India especially for “chat” food (I am a BIG chat eater and can live on pani puri :D), maids, common, you can’t afford to keep maids in foreign countries, homemade food from mom’s hands, and last but not the least, beauty parlors! I mean who can live without doing their eyebrows and upper lips? We Indians especially have dark hair everywhere, so until and unless you want to look like a female, parlor visits are a must!
So, when I moved to KL, I was a bit skeptical since I didn’t know anyone there, especially females who could help me in finding a good parlor as previously I have had bad experiences, so I am always very careful while choosing to do my eyebrows, since eyebrows frame the whole face and I didn’t want someone to screw it up! Upper lips are a bit simple since waxing can be done, but I cannot even think of waxing my brows!
So, therefore started the search for facial waxing strips! In India, I usually use Hip Hop Ready To Use Facial Waxing Strips and find them really good, but those are obviously not available outside India, so I had to use something locally available. While browsing through Guardian, one evening I came across this brand called Body Natur and they had waxing strips especially for face plus the words sensitive and chamomile were enough for me to grab them as soon as possible!
My Experience with Body Natur Hair Removal Strips:
Body Natur facial hair removal waxing strips come in a white box packaging. The box contains 6 strips, double sided, so total 12, along with 2 wet wipes to be used after waxing to calm the skin down. It also comes with a full set of instructions, which I forgot to take pic of. Anyway, when I first saw the strips, I was like “wow” these are way too small! I was comparing them with my Hip Hop strips and these are really tiny compared to them! Still, I thought they might work for upper lips since the size was perfect for it.
Now, for your information, I have quite thick hair on the face. Before using the strip, you need to rub it between the palms for the wax to melt. The first time I used it on my upper lips, it didn’t do anything! It did not remove a single hair! I was highly upset! I tried it a few days back again and this time I rubbed the strips for 4 to 5 minutes in between my palms and then after applying on the skin again, I rubbed it in the direction of the hair for a minute and then pulled it off in the opposite direction and this time a few hair did come out, but still it did not clean the area. So, basically these strips did not work for me at all! I had to go for threading after all.
My hair is thick but if you have very fine hair, this may work for you, but wouldn’t recommend to girls having thick hair since this will do nothing.
Pros of Body Natur Hair Removal Strips:
- Thoughtful packaging.
- Includes wipes to calm the skin and remove the left over wax residue.
- It removes fine hair.
- Did not cause any burning sensation or boils.
Cons of Body Natur Hair Removal Strips:
- Wax strips are too small, especially for side locks.
- Does not remove thick hair at all.
- Does not clean the area completely, even after waxing, some hair is still there, which looks patchy and ugly!
I think I paid around 20 RM approx 340 INR
Do I Recommend Body Natur Hair Removal Strips?
Absolutely not! If you have very fine hair, you may give it a try, but for thick hair, this does not do anything!
Hope the review was helpful. Until next time, take care and stay beautiful.
