Baby it’s cold outside…

But come rain or shine here’s why we think you ought to keep up your waxing in winter It’s definitely colder out there now, isn’t it? September usually means slow cooked casserole suppers, dialling up the central heating thermostat and burying ourselves under a blanket on the sofa after a hard day at work. But […]

DIY waxing

The current age of austerity has brought with it many millions of ways for us to save money. The notion of do this, that and the other yourself has dominated glossy magazines and the internet for months. But when it comes to your waxing, is this something you really want to try at home?

Madame Wax Recommends – Vaseline

There’s no school like the old school, and I’m a big fan of so-called old-fashioned products when it comes to my beauty regime.
