Hello gorgeous girls! I hope you have all had the most magical Christmas ever and I’m wishing you and yours a healthy, happy and prosperous 2018! It’s been a while since I last posted hey – I have been meaning to post over the festive season but I have been so busy throughout December that I literally never had any time to do so – I’m one of those who leave everything until the last-minute so I have been running around like a crazy woman. But it’s over now, I can relax and I’m back with my first review of the year!
I’ve been using some Facial Wax Strips from a company called Pretty By Quest and I’m really liking the brand so far, I love how most of their products are not tested on animals and they are so inexpensive too. I have a few other products from them but I thought I’d write a review on their facial wax strips first. I usually hate waxing as I can’t bare pain but I love how quick and easy it is compared to tweezing and less irritating on my skin and smelly than hair removal creams.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The Facial Wax Strips come in a small pink and white box which has all the info you need on the back of the box. The box has the cruelty free bunny on the back which means the wax strips and ingredients have not been tested on animals. There are 16 strips inside the box and each one measures 2 x 7.5cm which has two sides of pink wax when peeled apart and they are ideal for use on the chin, cheeks, upper lip and jaw line. They are a quick and easy solution to removing unwanted hair from the face and they are great value for money at just £1 a box from B&M.
HOW TO USE: I found the wax strips easy to use. First of all take one of the strips out of the box and warm one of the strips between your hands by rubbing them together for about 30 seconds. Gently peel the wax strips apart and apply the strip to the unwanted hair you wish to remove and smooth the strip in the same direction as your hair growth for about 10 seconds to ensure the hairs are coated with the wax and the strip is securely fixed to the skin. To remove the hair = hold the skin taut and pull the strip back on itself against the direction of hair growth, keeping the strip as close to the skin as possible. Afterwards use a cotton wool pad moistened with baby oil, coconut oil, etc… to remove any left-over wax from the skin and soothe the skin.
THOUGHTS: I really liked these facial wax strips and they are definitely a bargain at just a quid. There are enough strips in the box to last me a few months and they work really well considering the price. I love how they are cruelty free too. I have been using the strips on my upper lip and between my brows and I was impressed that every bit of hair was removed and they wasn’t as painful as I expected although they did hurt a little when removing them – more so on my upper lip area but it was quick and it only lasted a second. My skin wasn’t left red or inflamed either and I didn’t bruise. I wiped the excess wax off with my Omega Rich Cleansing Oil from Pure Potions and my skin was left smooth, soft and totally hair free afterwards. I would definitely 100% buy these again and I think they work just as good as more expensive ones from bigger, more popular brands.
DISCLOSURE: I bought this product with my own money.
