My Description & Thoughts:

Love the simplicity of the ingredient this. This just goes to show that great products do not have to be complicated.

This sugar based “wax” works very well is is very effective is removing hair from area that the mixture is applied to. The fact that the residue can be washed off with warm water is great. Often times, the clean up is time intensive–but not in this case.

The reusable strips increase the longevity of using this product and show that Moom values making “green” products.

After evaluating the eyebrow mixture’s ingredients, I see that Moom is capable of making high-quality, completely organic hair removal mixtures. My only wish for improvement regards just that. Having this body sugar mixture 100% organic is desirable.

My Description & Thoughts:

This product is such a wonderful find. In my multi-year experience in learning and exploring the world of organic beauty and cosmetic products, I had not come across a product like this, until now.

Before learning about Rawganic wipes, I was using organic oil concoctions and cotton balls to remove my makeup. Having a wipe that is ready to do the cleaning work is a wonderfully convenient and practical thing. They look like a dream, very thorough on both foundation and eye make-up. The fact that it is made of 100% organic cotton and 95% organic ingredients makes me an interested patron.

I’m glad I discovered this product that that Rawganic was gracious enough to provide me with a sample. It is not everyday that I find new products that I believe are unique and worlds better than other products that they “compete” with.

I also happen to dig the name, big time! RAWGANIC! 🙂

Persian / Parissa Wax Review

20130810-115542.jpg

Parissa / Persian Cold Wax & Strips

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

Alley at Parissa Waxing was extremely friendly and generous in helping me acquire samples from their sister company, Persian Wax. Here is a bit of background about Persian Wax:

“Each box of Persian Wax is a validation of the traditions of the past, where time spent on oneself is celebrated and satisfying, and results in not only looking beautiful on the outside but feeling beautiful on the inside.

Familiar to generations of Eastern women, this age-old recipe has become the benchmark against which all other hair removal products are measured. Now, at home is the Western world, this authentic, all-natural hair removal product brings delight to women in search of dazzling, extraordinarily smooth, hair-free skin.

A combination of exotic craft and premium ingredients, Persian Hair Remover® remains unchanged in both formula and contents for over thirty years. It is artistry – not chemistry, that produces a hair remover of inimitable quality in the spirit of Eastern beauty and elegance.”

Alley also provided me with some more tidbits about these products:

“Persian Wax which is specially formulated for sensitive skin.  Like Parissa, Persian Wax has only 3 ingredients, sugar, lemon and water – and is held up to the same ethos and eco-standards which include the use of quality, food-grade ingredients, no chemicals, parabens or fragrance and of course, completely animal friendly.

You’ll find the packaging bold and elegant, in keeping with the 3000 year old Middle-Eastern  recipe from which the product stems. We’ve added the quick & easy-to -use Persian Wax Strips – formulated with gentle cream wax, also for sensitive skin.”

Cold Wax

Persian Wax’s Description:

“Persian Cold Wax is the original time honoured recipe that women have been trusting for centuries. And now in celebration of Eastern elegance and beauty we have repackaged our luxurious cold wax – but kept the recipe unchanged. Because Persian Cold Wax works – beautifully so.

Ingredients:

Wax:  sucrose, aqua, citric acid.”

My Description & Thoughts:

The idea of waxing is intimidating and time intensive in my mind, or at least it was before discovering a product that makes this process easier. Persian Wax (sister company of Parissa Wax) does this with products that work well by way of great ingredients.

The waxing routine is something that can be expensive to have professionally done on a regular basis. I find that having a great brand like Persian or Parissa wax on hand is a way more economical choice.

In regards to cold wax in a jar versus strips that come with wax already applied, I think it is a personal preference and is also dependent upon which area of the body you are waxing. For example, if I am  are waxing areas on your face that require extra attention and precision, then using the cold wax in a jar is what is most effective because it allows me to control exactly where I am placing the wax and which areas have hair that need to be removed. These areas, for me, are my upper lip and eyebrows. On the other hand, if I am waxing an area with a larger surface area of hair, or an area that the wax strip size just happens to suit well, I prefer to use the strips with the wax already applied. For me, these areas are the bikini line, legs and arm pits.

This jar of is a great size to travel with (8 oz.–wouldn’t fit in a carry-on, but wouldn’t hardly take up any room in a checked bad if flying). The wax itself is comprised of simple, pure ingredients that prevent the skin from being irritated. The simplicity of the ingredient list might suggest that this product is not effective. However, the contrary is true. They have this mixture right–it does a great job getting all of the hairs that the wax is applied to. I see myself going back to Parissa & Persian wax strips in the future for all of my waxing needs. Only improvement would come from entirely organic ingredients.

Wax Strips

Persian Wax’s Description:

“Luxurious cream-wax formula designed specifically for sensitive skin. Convenient, mess-free, easy to use and 40 strips/box means you’ll always have enough!

Ingredients:

Wax: glyceryl rosinate (pine resin), ricinus communis (castor oil), cera alba (beeswax), titanium dioxide

Aftercare oil: canola oil, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), lemon and orange blossom, menthol.”

 My Description & Thoughts:
After reading my thoughts above about the cold wax in a jar, you will have an accurate depiction of how I feel about these wax strips. What I have to add is that I prefer these strips, if I could only pick one of the two. You can’t beat the fact that they are readymade. Pop them out of the box and you are ready to wax. I find that the width of these strips are perfect for my bikini line, no need for me to trim the strips to fit. They do a thorough job of removing hairs and leaving my skin clear looking. My skin was not irritated at all after using them–just stung initially after the hair removal, as expected. These wax strips are my “go-to” for waxing. Simple, practical, portable, effective, and made of quality ingredients. Only improvement would come from entirely organic ingredients.
