My WAXBAR Experience

Waxbar Manila
The cleanest, most gentle waxing salon I've been to yet!



Waxbar Body Waxing Salon opened on May 27 with the promise of premium waxing experience at an affordable price. I found out about this place a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I got to try their services! You see, I've been going to a certain cold waxing salon for months now because they were the cheaper, less painful alternative (or so I thought). To me, it didn't really matter which of their branches I went to, or how messy/inconsistent the process was, as long as they got the job done.

 But after experiencing Waxbar's excellent treatments, I'm changed for life. Why settle for okay when you can get great at the same pocket-friendly price? Sometimes, that great thing can even save you a few bucks, like Waxbar's underarm treatment which costs only P150 (P20 less than what I usually spend)!

Waxbar offers treatments from the brows down to the legs; simply fill out the form - they'll take care of the rest.

Their therapists are well-trained and very professional. They know what they're doing and they do it well. My therapist, Lyn, even explained their threading and waxing processes which I found very helpful since it was my first time undergoing some of the treatments. It also helped that they spoke highly of the products they use.

Lycon Precision Waxing has been around since 1978. It is trusted as the wax of choice in top spas and salons in over 57 countries. Formulated with the finest natural resins, bees wax, and sensuous aromatherapy, Lycon delivers superior results, removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm. At the same time, Lycon's low temperature, super pliable, and gentle waxes provide a nurturing and skin conditioning treatment for extra client comfort, even on the most sensitive skins.

I wouldn't go as far as saying the treatments didn't hurt - they did, but the pain was very minimal. I had my brows, upper lip, underarm, full legs, and bikini done and it all went well. I'm really happy with the results, especially the fact that the waxes didn't irritate my skin. Waxbar was able to address all my worries and apprehensions, and the best part is, there's no downtime! At that cold waxing place I've been going to, I wasn't allowed to get the waxed area wet for hours. But because Lycon has pre-post lotions that can close your pores after a treatment, there's no need to wait. Convenient, right? It's a huge bonus considering how inexpensive their prices are. They have all these extra steps that will make you feel like you're getting more than what you paid for.

For example, every treatment makes use of the Lycotane Skin Cleanser. It's a light, refreshing cleanser that is used before all facial and body waxing to effectively remove surface oils, perspiration, pollution, make-up, and cream residue from skin. It is also used after all waxing treatments to cleanse the skin and to help close the hair follicles. Another important product they use is the Pre-Waxing Oil which prevents wax from sticking to the skin and ensuring it only grips the hairs - minimizing skin drag and making waxing comfortable, clean, and efficient. Also, did I mention they give you a quick massage after a treatment to relax you your pores? Yep, this place is awesome.

Speaking of relaxing, have you ever been relaxed in a full body waxing session? I always thought I'd be screaming and cursing when the time came, but I didn't. I was actually pretty calm the whole time, thanks to Waxbar's sweet smelling waxes from Lycon.
Waxbar Manila
SoYummy Hot Wax - A chocolate treat without the calories! Super gentle with Iron Oxide and gentle Micro Mica. Ideal for all waxing, including Brazilians. Efficiently removes hair as short as 1mm. Perfect for sensitive areas.
Waxbar Manila
It also contains soothing aromatherapy ingredients, so it's usually used on the facial area. So yummy, indeed!
Waxbar Manila
SoBerry Delicious Strip Wax - With its delicious strawberry scent and spectacular, sparkling Micro Mica, SoBerry Delicious strip wax removes hair quickly and gently, with no skin drag. Also used on bigger areas such as legs and arms.

Waxbar uses their waxes depending on one's skin type (they also have lavender and coconut waxes). I also noticed that they put emphasis on cleanliness and hygiene. For one, they don't double dip. They will use all the sticks and strips they need to ensure you leave the room hair-free. Every room is made clean and spotless for the next client; instruments such as scissors have been washed and sterilized before using. So yeah, you're definitely in good hands here. ;)
