In the past, when I wanted to trim up my eyebrow area, I either broke out the tweezers or went for a shaver. These were only temporary “quick fixes,” because within days the hair would grow back and I’d have to do it again. The same was the case when I went to the nail salon to get my eyebrows waxed. They would look great, nice and clean, and perfectly arched. While it was worth the six bucks I paid, the hair seemed to grow back very quickly with even more of a vengeance.
So I decided to take a trip to my local drug store and see what products they had available. I came upon a pretty hot pink and green box called Nair Pretty Face amp; Bikini Wax Strips (Green Apple Hair Remover ). The box claims that it contains seven medium and 10 small sized double sided wax strips, and that the effect of the product “lasts weeks longer than shaving.” This looked like exactly what I needed-small wax strips that I can use to trim up my eyebrows at home.
When I got home I couldn’t wait to try it. Since the strips were shaped like rectangles, I quickly came up with the idea to cut a curve through each strip so that one half would be shaped like the top of my eyebrow and the other would be shaped like the bottom. All you need is a somewhat steady hand for this to work.
Once I had it cut, I rubbed the strips between my hands, as the directions say, and separated the strip. This is another feature that is wonderful-one strip is actually two that are stuck together. So one medium sized strip cut into curves will do all four areas of your eyebrows without a problem.
I smoothed the first one on and was half expecting it to not work, but when I quickly snatched the strip off seconds later, I had a clean, arched top eyebrow, and all of the unwanted hair was on the strip. I was amazed. I did the same for the rest and was very excited to have some sexy, well-groomed eyebrows when I was finished. Weeks later, my eyebrows still looked great. I haven’t found much of a need to redo them.
The Nair Pretty Face amp; Bikini Wax Strip box (which I purchased for $6.49) also claims that you will have “smooth, radiant skin” when you use this product, and no bumps. This product claim also turned out to be true. The skin around my eyebrows has remained smooth since I used the product. The box also contains three “post wipes,” which are wet cloths that you can use to wipe down the area that has just been waxed. I highly recommend this wonderful product for any woman looking for a quick, reliable do-it-yourself method to eyebrow waxing. You can also use the strips for other unwanted facial hair.
