The Sugar StripEase Waxing At Home Range - Review

'Hair removal for people who care about fluffy bunnies.'

Since Sugar StripEase was established in 1989 they have always manufactured in the UK. It's important to them that they maintain the highest standards and by manufacturing themselves in their factory, they are able to ensure that every batch that goes out is of the finest quality. They also endeavour to use British suppliers wherever possible and to support local businesses as much as they can. The company are proud to be the only hair remover to display the Made in Britain logo and they claim that they will continue to do so. All of the Sugar StripEase packaging is recyclable and in order to make the product as environmentally friendly as possible they have become the first ones to introduce reusable waxing strips. This means they're the ultimate eco-choice for anyone on a quest to be fuzz-free! Sugar StripEase do not test any of their products or ingredients on animals, and they are careful to ensure that their suppliers have the same standards. The company have been BUAV certified since 1989 and have maintained their standards for the last two decades. They're also very proud to display the Leaping Bunny logo which certifies them as cruelty free. The company are also approved for use by the Vegan Society, so therefore all of Sugar StripEase's products are vegan suitable, yay! Sugar StripEase has been created to take the chore out of hair removal. Sugar StripEase isn't just chemical-free: based on 100% natural ingredients, the exclusive formulation is literally good-enough-to-eat. And it can be used on all areas of the body from upper lip to bikini line, legs to underarms!

Sugar StripEase Jar   
This skin-softening blend has been formulated to be microwaveable, retaining it's heat in the jar so you have plenty of ‘playtime’ to treat the areas you wish to de-hair. Sugar StripEase also eliminates the risk of ingrown hairs, as hair re-growth will always be in its natural direction.

Pure Fine Talc

Soothing Mist
Sugar StripEase Soothing Mist is a carefully created spray for use after waxing. The Spring Water with Witch Hazel and Bergamot essential oils will soothe, and leave the skin feeling fresh and silky smooth. 

Heaven in a jar! This is honestly the best waxing product I have ever tried, and I've been through a lot of them. Every month I would make a visit to a local salon to have all of my waxing taken care of, which would cost me just over £40 a month. When I became vegan I started feeling guilty as I knew that the products that they were using on me weren't animal or vegan friendly. I'd heard of Sugar StripEase before but never got around to buying any of the products as I thought it would just be like the other waxing products I had tried before. But I was very wrong! And now whenever I use Sugar StripEase it feels like I've paid a visit to the salon but with costing me under half the price of what I was paying before! Now that I wax at home I don't have to wait for random appointments at the salon and I can wax whenever I like, it's so much better and easier for me. I've used the wax on all common areas and it's been great, just like a salon finished wax. It only takes 60 seconds in a microwave to heat up the wax into a honey like consistency, making it so easy to use! The Pure Fine Talc for dusting on the pre-waxed area and the Soothing Mist for spraying on the after waxed areas and both of these have been very helpful and have come in really handy. The strips are a very good quality and it's so easy to clean the wax off of them afterwards as the wax just melts away under warm water. The only thing I would say is that It does take me a quite a while to clean off all of my used strips and it seems to use up quite a lot of water when doing this! If anyone has any tips to prevent this taking time and using a lot of water then I would love to know please. Other than that I am totally in love with Sugar StripEase and I wish I had bought it sooner as I would have saved myself a lot of money and trips to the salon! As you can probably tell I've really enjoyed using these and I've already repurchased all of the products.
