Guide Review - GiGi Mimosa Film Hard Wax
It has “vinyl copolymers, which gives the wax its elasticity and versatility.” Basically it’s somewhat forgiving and more pliable. It does not feel like a hard wax because it goes on more like a honey wax, but without having to use your strips. A thin layer was all it took, and then zip, you’re done.
Although it was gentle enough for those sensitive areas, and tough enough for the arms and legs, I did have issues with it removing all the hair at once. I tried this over and over on several clients with different hair types and varying hair lengths. I wanted to give the hard wax a fair shot, but still had those few strays.
All in all, this was a great product. This is definitely not for the non-professional. I had difficulty finding it at my local beauty supplies, including Cosmoprof (a store that only sells to licensed Cosmetologists, Estheticians and Nail Technicians). I was able to find it online though!
