Best Home waxing kit & face mask?

ready strips are preferable to warm kits as I do not have a microwave
I also need a face mask to return my skin from its grey current state to something more pinky - any suggestions?

K, I'm a waxer since I was 15 (that's nearly 20 years). The best by far IMO is Bliss Spa. BUT, this stuff is very, very expensive. Don't know about other products, b/c I use Bliss no matter what. I don't wax my own bikini line, however, as I've been going Brazilian for years.

As for mask, Dermologica products all the way!

Is that only available from the bliss spa in London town? or do you use t'internet?

I got them online till we got a Harvey Nick's in town. Bliss ROX! I usually use TendSkin before waxing at home. When I first started, I got a script for a topical analgesic creme called Emla, but not all folks need it and I don't a/more.

Have you been to the salon then? I haven't but was tempted when they first opened?
I shall pop down to beyond beauty and have a nosey

No, I haven't been to a Bliss salon, but it would be on my list of 'If I won the Lotto, I would . . .' If only! Their products are ace, however. Much better than BeneFit IMHO.

Not a large benefit fan, i have the leg stuff you put on with a velvet pad and it is hard to apply, though the sparkle is nice
Currently am looking forward to going to the elemis spa as have a voucher to use...but need to wax first as am slightly gorilla esque at present

I admire your courage, Dilly. It was some years before I braved waxing at home, and still won't or can't do bikini at home. But legs, well, no prob at all!

My sister does her armpits but I draw the line at stings just thinking about it.

K, I do my armpits. After a few years of waxing, you lose sensitivity.
