Cold Wax by Aromacology Sensi
Posted on: 25th of October 2009 | Under: Fashion & Beauty

For a girl, I have a bit too much hair on my arms. My mom always craved and ate balot when she was pregnant with me and they say that’s why I’m a bit too hairy. If you’re Filipino and understand the term “pinaglihi,” yes, pinaglihi ako sa balot. It sucks, because I really don’t like seeing that much fuzz on my arms. Thank goodness for hair removal means, because I wouldn’t know what to do without them!

I don’t shave my arms for fear that the hair will all grow back uglier and thicker. Instead, I wax. I’ve tried several types of wax in the market. From easy to use wax strips to hot wax, but I ditched those, because they either didn’t work well or were just too messy for my liking. Earlier this year, I finally found something that I really really loved:

Aromacology Sensi's Cold Wax

Aromacology Sensi’s Cold Wax

Just use paper with it!

What I love most about this wax, is how cost effective it is. You don’t need to buy expensive wax strips/cloths, just use plain paper. Yes, paper! Even scratch paper will work just as well!

Here’s a quick step-by-step visual to show you guys how easy it is to use:

A little goes a long way!

Just scoop a small amount of the cold wax straight from the pot (yes, no heating required!) using a spatula. A little goes a long way!

Apply it on your hairy arm.

Apply a thin layer of the wax in the direction of the hair growth. See how long my arm hairs are? Haha!

Lay a strip of paper over the wax.

Lay a strip of paper over the wax and rub in the same direction as the hair growth.

Pull!

With a swift motion, pull the paper back against the growth of the hair.

Tada!

Tada! Check out all that hair! =P

Clean patch!

Repeat several times covering the entire arm. Afterward, clean the skin with a warm moist towel to remove excess wax.

No hair!

Look ma, no hair! =D

See how fast and easy that was? :) I can enjoy several weeks of hairless arms with this baby! Plus, it’s only selling at the affordable price of Php215! That’s only about $4.50USD! It’s definitely the perfect salon treatment in the comfort of your own home. I just love it! :)

To enjoy other spa treatments in the comfort of your own home (no eye creams, though), do hop on to Revitalize Spa. :)

    wow. your arm looks nice and smooth. the cold wax looks effective and seems easy to use. it does not look messy at all compared to nads or other stuff in the market. i tried the sally hansen one. that one was way too sticky and did not work. either that or i might’ve done the wrong thing. lol.

    lol. i am going to try to avoid the mac counter for a while. that way, i won’t be able to find out about those limited edition collections. they are so tempting to buy. i’ll stick with walmart for now. more guilt free hauls there. hehehe…

    take care, anz. :)

    I’ve tried the Sally Hansen and I found it a little too sticky for my liking as well. With this cold wax, my thick arm hairs seem to come off with just one pull. :) Haha! Come to think of it, I don’t have any of the limited edition MAC collections. I tend to go for the ones that are always available, that way I won’t have problems getting them again if I run out. :) Take care too, Ate Janz! :)

    Thumbs up to your free demo of the product. It gives more insight of the product’s effectiveness… (^-^)b Now I want to use it too.

    Um~ But it will be my 1st time to do so and I’m planning to use it on my underarms, will it be an ideal product? Will it hurt for 1st-timers [like wax always does to 1st-timers]???

    anna Reply:

    Hi there! :) This product is pretty much like other wax out there. So yes, it might hurt for first timers. It really depends on your tolerance for pain, I guess. If you’re planning to use it on your underarms, I suggest getting someone else to help you with it. Good luck!

  3. flaming820 says:

    Me again. Don’t mind the ^^above post anymore. They say it really does hurt but it’ll be worth it… And later on, I’ll be immune to the pain.

    Anyway, I’m wonderin won’t there be any need of using an after-product like a cream or something after using the cold wax? I’ve read some forum discussions about them using something after.

    Hello again! :) I’m no expert in waxing, but I usually just wipe the waxed area clean with a warm cloth (to get rid of any residue if ever) and then moisturize (with a mild lotion) after. Moisturizing is important, because growing hair and dry skin can get really itchy! =P

    hello how much yung cold wax?,sa aromacology ba yan?
    masakit ba?

    anna Reply:

    Hi! It’s at P215 each at Revitalize Spa: http://revitalizespa.multiply.com/photos/album/6/Body_Care#photo=7

    And yes, it’s by Aromacology. It’s like most waxing, it will pinch a bit, especially if you’re sensitive and not used to it.

    is paper strip and muslin strip the same?? i mean yung hold nila????

    anna Reply:

    Paper and muslin strips are different. I’ve never tried using muslin strip with this cold wax, because paper does an excellent job on its own. It’s cheaper pa. :)

    i have one at home, pero nung nagwawax na ako, napabayaan ko na ma expose sa open air yung wax, after that it doesn’t work that good anymore. is there any remedy for this? marami pa kasing laman yung akin and sayang naman kung di na magagamit :(

    anna Reply:

    Like most wax, this cold wax gets hard when exposed to air, kaya make sure you close it tightly after each use. When mine gets hard, I let the jar sit in hot water to soften the wax a bit. :)

    hi! after i wax my arms.. there are some red spots growing on my skin :( how can i cure this thing? please :(

    love Reply:

    After you wax your arms some red spots appeared in your skin, its a common thing to got after you wax, because its your first time waxing it, i advice you to just wash it with antibacterial soap(safeguard) and after that put some lotion which is also antibacterial and for irritated skin, dont use lotion which is not advisable for Irritated skin it may just worsen your red spots,..
