Everything That Happened When I Started Waxing

Everything That Happened When I Started Waxing


For those of you who have not tried at-home waxing with our Parissa products,  we would like to introduce you to Amanda!

Amanda is a university student who just moved out of her parent's home and is now living on her own for the first time. She is concerned about the environment and wanted to explore alternative options to shaving, as razors create plastic waste that ends up in landfills. Not having the finances or the time to go to salons regularly, Amanda began her adventures in at-home waxing with Parissa, and she has a lot to say about it!


“As a waxing novice, I took to the internet to see what I could learn about at-home hair removal. I read online about Parissa’s Legs & Body Wax Strips, and found that they are affordable, natural, biodegradable, and (if the videos I’d seen on social media were to be believed) easy to use at home!

Lucky for me, Parissa is available practically everywhere so I was able to get my hands on a box of the Legs & Body Wax Strips that very same evening from a store down my street.

I was intimidated by at-home waxing initially, but Parissa kits are perfect for us beginners. The kit has everything you need, including an Ultra Soothe Oil that not only smells great but left my skin super soft and free of irritation. Parissa Legs & Body Wax Strips were so easy to use, the instructions were clear and simple, and if I had any issues or confusion, I found that the tips and tutorials on the Parissa website were really clear and answered any questions I could have. This company clearly cares about their customers and wants us to get the best results out of their products!


As a full-time student, who is now living on my own, my schedule is tight and my finances tighter. I don’t have time or money to spare on getting salon treatments regularly. Not only is Parissa wax more affordable than going to a salon, but because wax removes hair at its root, the hair takes much longer to grow back than it would between shaves. As a result, I don’t have to worry about hair removal for at least a month after I wax, saving precious time and money!


I had heard it said that when you wax regularly your hair will start to grow back thinner, but I was skeptical. Well, I can’t tell you how excited I was to find that IT IS TRUE!

Not only does it take longer between waxes for my hair to grow back, but it's noticeable how much less hair comes back after each time I wax. It’s incredible! 

Overall, I could not recommend Parissa more highly, especially if time and money are a concern! The Legs & Body Wax Strips are so easy to use and the results are better than I had hoped!


I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with body hair, but for myself, I always feel more confident and comfortable when I have smooth, hairless skin.

Because the wax exfoliates as it removes hair, after using the Parissa Legs & Body Wax Strips my skin was left smooth and soft, and it lasted for so long - way longer than when I would shave in the past! Also, I never considered the fact that there is no razor burn when you wax! My skin was left clear and moisturized and I was left beaming about my newfound hair removal skills!

I was hooked and I have been waxing regularly ever since."
