07 Feb My WaxIT experience
The lovely people at WaxIT invited me to test out their services.
At first, I was hesitant to try WaxIT because all women know that your wax lady is like your hairdresser – they are basically your bffs and you try to stick with the same one your entire life. I agreed, because I reckon it’s always good to know where the good waxing establishments are.
Pulling up to WaxIT in Douglasdale at mid-morning on a Saturday, I take a nervous breath because it’s time for my monthly wax. It still baffles me that even after decades of waxing, I still dread it.
The first thing I noticed when I arrived was the silence. It’s quite calming. I was greeted by friendly staff and followed a beauty therapist into one of the private rooms. On the wax bed lied disposable underwear, which is normal, and an iPad and earphones. The latter was a bit different and new to me. That’s when I was told that they were for me to watch or listen to whatever I want online so that I am distracted from the waxing. Kind of genius really. This for me is two-fold – 1. If you’re not in the mood for conversation, you aren’t forced to have awkward conversation with your beauty therapist and 2. You get to catch up with series / music / news and be distracted from the pain at the same time.
I must admit that the beauty therapist had a great technique which left me not only at ease from the start, but also ensured that my bikini and underarm waxes were close to painless.
WaxIT is conscience of customers with sensitive skin – which is great for people like me – and thus they only use special wax that they import from France. I was in and out in half an hour, which was great. It’s been a couple of weeks now since my wax and the French products have left me smoother for longer.
Not only is WaxIT an efficient establishment that makes sure that you’re in and out in record time, but it was also a pleasant experience. In addition to this their prices are competitive. You can view their services and price list here.
WaxIT has three branches in Jozi and one in P-town. Find the one closest to you on their website.
