Guide Review - Parissa Hair Sugaring 2 in 1 Roll-On
The container fit well in my hand and was very easy to use. I placed the open container in the microwave and heated the “sugar”. When it was heated, I screwed on the large applicator tip and prepared my client for the new product. You see, I take clients who are willing to assist me with testing new products and do their service for free. It’s a win-win, most of the time. I tend to use clients who I have worked with for a long time so they know that I am more than capable of hair removal. (Thank goodness!)
I began to roll on the product, which only needed a paper thin layer, and WOOSH! A huge glob of product came oozing out of the applicator tip. Now, if you have done this with regular wax, you panic. Not with this product, it washed off as easily as whipped cream off a spoon as a real sugaring product does. Simple and painless for the client, a slight bruise to the ego. I tried again and again, but 6 out of 10 times, I just got globs.
The hair did come out but I felt that too much product was wasted. The strips are washable which is always nice and the residue is slim to none. This is a decent product when correctly used. The applicator seems to create more of a mess and a problem than the product is worth. I’d skip this one until Parissa comes up with a new applicator. Try the Parissa chamomile body sugar that comes in a pot for easier application.
