Pre-waxing Presidents

Call me superficial, but the first thing I think of when I look at this picture is “Oh, honey, we have GOT to do something with those eyebrows!” I know that waxing hadn’t quite gained popularity in the 1860’s, but if it had, Abe should have marched himself over to 49th street for a brow waxing faster than you can say “I am the 16th president of the USA” five times fast!

We’ve had the fabulous troupe of estheticians who will be working at the Hoboken spa (which will open *very* soon) in our headquarters perfecting their skills with our poetic wax, so I volunteered myself for an eyebrow wax. My wax was ouch-free as usual. Have you ever been waxed at Bliss? We use a low-heat, stripless wax that is as painless as possible. The best part is that the wax can be used on hair as short as 1mm, which means you don’t have to grow it out in order to get waxed. The wax virtually shrink wraps the hair and becomes the strip, so it’s super easy to remove and doesn’t yank off the topmost layer of skin like other waxes.

My secret weapon against ingrowns and breakouts post waxing for any facial waxing (brow, lip, chin, etc) is bliss change your spots, an invisible lightweight gel that has a the highest level of salicylic acid you can get without a prescription. The salicylic acids exfoliates away post-waxing breakouts without drying the skin. I apply 8-12 hours after waxing.

Bliss change your spots is also my purse-sized hero to banish blemishes FAST-feel one coming? Apply change your spots! Have one already? Apply change your spots and the healing time will be diminished. Have you ever had one of those post-breakout dark spots that just won’t go away? Change your spots contains licorice root, which lightens hyperpigmentation, so your skin will go back to its pre-breakout look in no time. The tube may look small, but you only need a dot here and a dot there, so it lasts a really long time.


Looking for a gentle, effective ingrown hair treatment?
If you’ve ever wanted to know how to get rid of ingrown hairs, you’ve come to the right place! A great home ingrown hair treatment to treat ingrown hair is our ingrown hair treatment pads. Our ingrown hair eliminating pads gently exfoliate with salicylic and glycolic acid to prevent ingrown hairs. Our ingrown hair treatment also soothes the skin with oat extract, witch hazel and lavender oil. They’re the best at home ingrown hair treatment because they’re gentle on the skin. The container contains 50 pre-soaked pads (don’t reuse them!) to make ingrown hair treatment a breeze.

Bliss Kisses!
