My Underarm Experience at Hey Sugar : A Waxing Salon in Iloilo City

Hey Sugar! was created as an answer for the need to have an organic and all-natural waxing option in the city.

I'm here to tell you my underarm waxing experience at Hey Sugar! Sure, it hurts a little. But you really only have to have your armpits waxed once to become a total believer. I'm not kidding—it’s seriously going to change your life.

Not only are your armpits left totally smooth and hair-free for up to four weeks, you can say a permanent goodbye to the skin irritation, nicks and painful ingrown hairs that often come with shaving such a delicate area.

Depending on your hair, you may not get the totally long-lasting results you want—and that’s OK. Your first wax may only keep your underarms smooth for a couple of weeks, rather than the desired four. But the more regularly you wax, the better your results will be and, paradoxically, the longer you will be able to go between waxes.
