I have dark hair, which unfortunately means that I feel the need to either wax or bleach above my upper lip. When I was a teenager, I opted to wax and since then I’ve stuck with it. At home it was pretty easy to do because I had a waxing kit, but once I got to college, the kit was covered in too much wax and was just too messy to bring to school with me.
I’ve been in school for almost three years now and have found a place close to campus that waxes. However, I don’t exactly love walking through campus after my wax with a bright red upper lip and I miss the days where I could wax in the comfort of my own home. Luckily, I don’t have to anymore because I’ve found Bliss Poetic Waxing Strips, which let me do my own waxing in my own room without any mess.
I bought the set of eight strips for $12, but you can also buy a set of 20 for $25. The strips are formulated with aloe vera, which kept my upper lip from being irritated. It also didn’t appear too red after using these strips. I love that these strips are simple to use – just rubs the strips between your hands to warm the wax, put them on the area where you want to remove the hair, rub the strip in the direction of the hair growth and then pull off the strip in the opposite direction. For an easy clean up after, the kit comes with oil that will remove any residue.
I got my kit at Sephora and will definitely be buying another one!
