Skin Is In: Warm Weather Heats Up Waxing Services

By Anne Moratto | 05/08/2013 3:42:00 PM


Hair removal services are seasonless but it's always true that summertime sees more body baring fashion so the demand for smooth, hair-free skin increases. 

Two new products from GiGi Spa help make hair removal a more comfortable experience for the client and ensure more successful results for the technician.



GiGi No Sting Wax ultra gentle wax offers Kava Kava within the wax formula.  Kava Kava is a natural numbing agent that, when infused in wax, helps relieve the pain and discomfort associated with hair removal. Designed to take the sting out of waxing for those with delicate skin or who are prone to sensitivity, the GiGi® No Sting Wax effectively removes all unwanted hair while minimizing pain.

GiGi No Bump™ Roll-on Skin Smoothing Gel helps eliminate ingrown hairs, bumps and razor burn in a convenient roll-on application.  Salicylic Acid and Aspirin help keep skin "calm" post-hair removal. Apply directly to skin immediately after removal, and repeat daily for maintenance.

What a load of S^it....... Kava has NO effect through the Skin. Not even our high potency pure Kavalactone paste has any sort of effect when placed on the skin. FAIL.
