Underarm Waxing Experience at Belle la Peau

Underarm waxing is one of the rituals I need to do regularly, once a month at the very least but preferably every two weeks, because I think my body thinks that I’m one of the boys. LOL! For years, I’ve been doing it at home using sugar wax from Nanny Rose’s Sticks and Pulls however, this method can get tedious at times especially since it involves a great deal of effort particularly cleaning after and washing the cloth strips after the procedure is done. I find this inconvenient at times especially when I am short of time, hence I decided to buy an epilator from Amazon.

I had high hopes with the use of epilator but over time, I don’t find the result ideal either. My hair grows back in a matter of days and it hasn’t improve the appearance of chicken skin which the product is claiming to do.

One time, I decided to try having the procedure done at a professional waxing salon. I’ve been eyeing Belle la Peau for some time already, not only because of the girly interior of the salon but also because they look legit.


As what I have said, the salon has girly interior which makes it more appealing to ladies who love everything beautiful. One thing I like about this salon is the area where the procedure is actually done. Waxing is done in small rooms, not like other salons wherein underarm waxing is done in areas separated by curtains only. To me this is very important! I also love that the room is clean however, I doubt if they replace the towels after every customer. It’s not a big deal to me since underarm waxing does not really require the use of these towels but it’s another story when it comes to brazilian waxing and others.

Every room is also equipped with its own waxing paraphernalia so the aesthetician don’t have to go in and out of the room to get the stuff she needs.


The front desk personnel along with the aesthetician who handled me are all friendly and I don’t have any issue with them. They are also focused in doing their job while they’re at it. We’ve had a short chit chat during the procedure and so far, she seems ok to me.


The procedure lasted for around 15 minutes only and that already includes the rose scrub I availed before the actual waxing. When you decide to avail the scrub, the aesthetician will apply the scrub and let it stay on your skin for a few minutes. After which, she will gently scrub your underarms using a soft cloth and wipe it dry. Once the skin is dry, she will apply the clay wax and pull it away after a few seconds (when it’s already dry). The step is repeated until only the very short hair remains. She will use a tweezer to remove the remaining hair. After which, she will again wipe it clean and wipe the skin with cream or maybe a salve. And that’s it! Washing of underarms should be avoided within six to eight hours after waxing.

It has been said that waxing stunts the growth of hair thus the need to wax less often, however, I don’t think it’s applicable to me. My underarm hair has grown a bit within a week. Also, I cannot vouch that the hair tends to grow thinner as it’s still the same for me. Maybe if I go there regularly? I plan to return there maybe two more times to get maximum results. If it’s still the same, then it’s time to look for another waxing salon.

Have you tried at-home-waxing? Which do you prefer?
