First Step To Getting Summer Ready Gigi and clean+ easy Wax Kit

366Memorial Day Weekend is officially upon us, which means that the kickoff to summer has officially begun.  For me this has meant a frantic dash to get myself ready for bikinis, sun, short shorts, sandals and the heat and humidity that comes with summer.  My first step towards getting myself “summerified” was to make sure that I was as fuzz free as possible…which meant a good old fashioned all out do-it-myself waxing session.

Since I had an insane travel schedule and no time to go to a salon, I decided to undertake waxing on my own. I wanted to make sure I was fully prepared and that I did it the correct way, so I employed an arsenal of at home waxing products from clean+easy and Gigi.  The products from Gigiincluded: an Anesthetic Numbing Spray that is used before waxing to take the sting out, a Bikini Soothing Cream, used after waxing to soothe and moisturize the skin, Slow Grow with Argan Oil to minimize the appearance of new hair growth and No Bump Roll-On to eliminate ingrown hairs, bumps and razor burns.  The clean+easy products included; an Almond Coconut Wax, a Petite Wax Warmer, Wax Strips in small, medium and large for every part of the body, Spatulas, Remove After Wax Remover and Restore Dermal Therapy Lotion to soothe, condition and protect the skin post waxing.  I was not kidding when I said and arsenal of products!  Read more

BodyHonee All Natural Hair Removal Wax Review



In an effort to be  more well groomed in 2013, I thought I would begin the new year with an all out at home waxing session.  I mean what better way to get rid of the old and welcome the new, soft, smooth and newly hairless, than by ripping it out by its roots?

In an ode to winter I had neglected my usual waxing for quite some time, after all, isn’t a bit of extra hair natural insulation? OK, maybe that’s a bit of stretch seeing as how I live in Florida, but I needed some type of an excuse when my boyfriend gave me the side eye after lovingly rubbing my legs.  Read more
