Parissa's Organic Roll-On Sugar Wax!

Why the Parissa Organic Roll-On Sugar Wax is the Perfect Gift!

Sugar Waxing is one of the world's oldest hair-removal methods and it is now available in a sleek, modern, and mess-free applicator for effortless at-home waxing. Before we get too far into the benefits of Parissa Roll-On Sugar Wax and why it is the perfect holiday gift, what even is Sugar Wax, where does it come from, and why should you use it?

What is Sugar Wax?

Sugar waxing is a method of hair removal that originated in Ancient Egypt around 1900 B.C. In Ancient Egypt body hair was considered unclean, so men and women alike removed all of their body hair, from head to toe. This much hair removal required a powerful method, and today the basic recipe for sugar wax is the same as Cleopatra herself (yes, THAT Cleopatra) would have used - water, sugar, and lemon.

While the use of Sugar Wax has been a popular hair-removal method in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Mediterranean for centuries, it only entered the western consciousness in the late 1980s. Since then, it has skyrocketed in popularity as a go-to, eco-friendly wax option and for good reason!

Benefits of Sugar Waxing

One of the best parts of Sugar Wax (in our humble and completely non-biased opinion) is that it does not adhere to live skin cells - meaning there is no risk of abrasion or tearing. The only skin that Sugar Wax will lift is the dead stuff - and you should be getting rid of that anyway. Hello exfoliation!

If your gift receiver is a beginner in the waxing world, Sugar Wax is perfect for them! Parissa Sugar Wax is a hypoallergenic all-natural hair removal product that is made from USDA-certified organic ingredients, and it is 100% vegan! A great option for sensitive skin, our non-toxic formula is infused with chamomile to reduce any potential irritation. To top it all off, Sugar Wax dissolves easily in water (unlike other waxes) making cleanup a breeze!

How to Use Roll-On Sugar Wax

  1. Warm your Roll-On Sugar Wax in the microwave for 20 seconds, following the heating instructions on the provided instruction sheet.
  2. Roll the Sugar Wax onto your skin in the direction of your hair growth.
  3. Press an epilation strip firmly down on the Sugar Wax. Then, while holding your skin taut, zip off the epilation strip as quickly as possible.
  4. Enjoy smooth, soft skin for weeks to come!

Tips and Tricks

  • When heating your wax, it's best practice to heat it for 20 seconds in 10-second increments, checking the temperature of the wax in between to make sure it doesn’t get too hot!
  • For best results, wait until your hair has reached at least 2mm in length before waxing.
  • Wash and dry skin before waxing and do not apply deodorants, antiperspirants, alcohols, astringents, or any beauty products for 24 hours after waxing!
  • Do a patch test first. When trying a new product always test it on a small area of skin. Wait 24 hours and if no irritation occurs, you’re safe to continue use.
  • Avoid waxing sunburned, irritated, or injured skin, and do not sunbathe before or after waxing for at least 24 hours.
  • While zipping off the epilation strip, always keep your hand close to your body and pull along the skin. Never pull up or away from your skin as it could cause irritation, bruising or skin lifting.

Give the gift of waxing, with the Parissa Roll-On Sugar Wax! Cleopatra would be proud!
