Tired of shaving? Have you ever tried sugaring? No? You should! Sugaring works in a similar way to waxing – makes your hair grow thinner and thinner.

Sugar Strip Ease is made from special blend of sugar syrups and is 100% free from any chemicals or additives.  Product is completely water soluble – no need for ‘after waxing wipes’. The fabric strips are reusable – just clean them under warm water to get rid of any residue.

Sugar StripEase Kit contains:
- Sugar StripEase Natural Hair Remover Jar 250g;
– Strips, Reusable & Washable x15;
– Applicators x3 (2 large and 1 small);
– Instructions.

How to use:
Heat up the jar in microwave for 60 seconds (around 650 watt). Make sure it’s not too hot (test the product on your wrist). Apply the thin layer of sugar wax with wooden spatula. Immediately cover with a fabric strip. Pull back in the opposite direction of hair growth. And… you are done!

Pros:
- simple to use;
– only 2 ingredients – no lemon juice (a common ingredient in sugaring that can be irritant on sensitive skin);
– honey-ish consistency – not as messy as wax;
– less painful than wax – sugar syrup sticks only to the hair and not to the skin;
– suitable for sensitive skin – can be used on every area of the body from face to legs, bikini-line to underarm;
– water soluble;
– pretty packaging;
– leaving silky smooth skin for around 2-3 weeks;
– price (around 14 euro);
– not tested on animals.

Cons:
- none.

Shea butter is a slightly yellowish or ivory colored natural fat extracted from the seed of the African shea tree by crushing and boiling. The English name “shea” comes from sí, the tree’s name in the Bamana languages of Mali. The French name “karité” comes from ghariti, its equivalent in the Wolof language of Senegal.

Shea butter is widely used in cosmetics as a as moisturizer creams and emulsion, and hair conditioners for dry and brittle hair. It is edible and may be used in food preparation, or sometimes in the chocolate industry as a substitute for cocoa butter.

Shea butter has been claimed to be effective treatment for the following conditions: fading scars, eczema, burns, rashes, severely dry skin, dark spots, skin discolorations, chapped lips, stretchmarks, wrinkles, and in lessening the irritation of psoriasis. It has been used as a sunblocking lotion, although the level of protection against the sun’s ultraviolet radiation is extremely variable, ranging from nothing to approximately SPF 6. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.
