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.


Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destintion that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.

At the start of each service, the skin is prepped through gentle cleaning using a specially-formulated ethyl alcohol which is made from pure sugar cane. Afterwards, they apply cornstarch, which helps get rid of extra oil and gives the skin extra protection. Then, fresh wax made from 100% sugar is poured into a new cup (which they immediately toss out when your session is over). 
Each service is finished off with a smooth application of virgin coconut oil to help soothe the skin and lessen the chances of irritation.

Their aestheticians are expertly trained to answer all your questions, so feel free to have a conversation with them about what you want or what you want to know.

It was a remarkably quick process, too!  I thought it would take awhile, but I was done after 15 minutes!  There was no bruising, redness, or tenderness.  It was just soft, smooth, and awesomely hair-free.
