Because I need to have my waxing done soon, I remembered that I have this post in my drafts still!!
While in the Philippines, I went to Lay Bare Waxing Salon whenever I need to have hair removed. (Does that sound right? LOL)
Because I have no idea where to go, I asked my cousin (and brother!!) where to go. They both suggested Lay Bare.
|The room. (This was my view lying down)|
Lay Bare in SM the Block is the nearest branch to me. I don't really mind the commute coz I'm almost always there anyways! Staff were friendly and courteous. They really know how to make the customer feel comfortable. That's important coz hair removal is a very intimate thing, yeah? They also know how to sell their services without making you feel bullied!
|I've always had 2 attendants. Not sure if that's standard or they just like me very much. LOL|
What I loved the most is that they used cold wax made of honey, brown sugar and calamansi (our own native lemon ... if that makes sense). I'm very scared of going to waxing salons because there was this one time that the attendant burned my armpits! Yes, burned.
They were using hot wax and she just put it there as if its the most normal thing on earth. After that session, my pits were red and painful. Then it became dark. Thankfully it peeled and now its almost back to its usual self. Ok, back to Lay Bare ...
Because they used cold wax, I didn't have any issues at all. The attendant even said that this particular mixture makes the armpits whiter. So, yay!!
Overall experience was nice. The place was clean. And they're very affordable (especially compared to waxing salons in Dubai!!) You can check out their website for more info.
