GiGi all purpose honee

Happy Friday everyone! I realized that I did four outfit posts in a row so I decided to do a beauty post today. Have you guys ever used any products by GiGi? I have been using their waxing products for five years now. It wasn't until I went to beauty school that I learned how to use this wax correctly.
I bought my all purpose honee by GiGi from Sally's beauty supply for 10 dollars.  I usually buy the 12 oz, but since it lasts forever I decided to get the 8 oz this time.  I  love this wax! I use it to remove any unwanted facial hair, but I've also used it on my armpits (it was very painful!).

How I use it:
The wax comes with a clear lid first I remove it and then I heat the wax in the microwave.

I like to heat my wax for 2 minutes. I mix the wax with a stick and place a small amount on my finger to check how hot it is.

Then I just apply the wax evenly in the direction of hair growth. I use enough wax to thoroughly cover the hair.
When you apply too much wax it's difficult to remove. So I don't apply a thick amount.

Then I apply the paper strip in the direction of hair growth  and I run my finger over the strip. 

I remove the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth and I'm done.  After that I like to put a little baby oil on the skin.

I bought my paper waxing strips at Sally's beauty supply as well. I bought the waxing sticks at a dollar store and they work just fine.

 I love he fact that I'm saving so much money by doing my own waxing at home. I bought my wax for 10 dollars and I know that it will last over a year! Hope you guys have a great weekend! 


  1. We have been doing our own waxing at home for awhile too. We were paying $18-25 a visit just for eyebrows. Doing it at home definitely saves a ton of money! Have a wonderful weekend :)
