The list of “things I can’t do myself” is a long one: changing the oil in my car, cleaning out my AC filters, attempting to hang any sort of framed picture that weighs more than five pounds…and then there’s the separate list of things I’ve tried to perfect, but, no matter how much I practice, I just can’t get it down like a pro.
Waxing is one of them. The at-home route just doesn’t work for me. I’ve read the tips, I’ve tried the products, but it’s not something I’m good at-and I don’t think I ever will be. I’d rather pay someone to do it correctly, rather than end up being stressed out (and with some skin issues) over one more failed attempt.
But Bliss’s new Poetic Waxing Wax Strips for Face have me feeling a bit more self-sufficient. The peel-able strips are perfect for the brow and lip area (there’s also a body version), you just “heat” them up in your hand for 15 seconds, apply and strip off. They do a good job at getting off what you need to, while being fairly pain-free. Plus, redness is kept to a minimum, so there’s no obvious tell-tale signs as to what you’ve been doing, no matter how challenged you are in the do-it-yourself waxing department.
