Their microwaveable gel is made of the same basic natural ingredients of other sugaring recipes, but also infused with chamomile to calm skin.

Conveniently used at room temperature, so there's no heating involved. Try this mini kit to see if you like Moom, before splurging on a larger version. There’s enough product for a couple “sweet” hair removal sessions on the lip or eyebrows (read review).

This sugar hair remover is natural and microwaveable, but the way you put it on your skin is unique. Using an interesting looking roller-ball, this kit comes with two different size applicators (large for body, small for face) instead of using wooden sticks. Does it make the process at home easier?
