One of the best local New York tips I’ve ever gotten came from friend and Glow Girl Sarah Hoover. She shared with me the hidden gem of the quick-fix waxing world: Benefit. It’s a true one-stop-shop. You can tint your lashes, tweeze your brows and manage your bikini situation. You can even get a spray tan. Amazing, right? Well, that’s not even the best part. During my last minute visits to the Soho location, I met Nicky, a true brow and bikini goddess. Shortly after I realized how insanely talented she was, she left Benefit to start her own private practice where she travels to the client’s home and even office. I love Nicky, and after seeing her I just felt so accomplished – and I never even needed to leave my apartment. All was well and good, until I realized that I was going to need to figure out how to handle my bikini situation while Nicky was away on maternity leave.
I considered heading back on over to Benefit until she was back in business, but with all my travels and being so busy, I don’t always have time to get it together. Plus, I got so used to just handling everything at home. Enter: Completely Bare Ready, Set, Wax! Wax Strips Kit for Face, Bikini & Body. I know what you are thinking; I can’t wax myself at home. But yes you can and it couldn’t be easier, quicker and cost effective. The customizable sheets are so easy to use because there is no heating involved. You simply rip open the packaging, cut to the size you need and remove the adhesive. I love how easy they are to use anytime, anywhere to remove the shortest and most stubborn of hairs. They are also perfect for the summer when you find yourself in need of more frequent touch ups. Trust me on this one, girls, and thank me later.
