The BlogHer conference is this weekend.
Time for my annual eyebrow wax and pedicure. You know the saying that women dress for each other? I mean, how often do I write about cosmetics on this blog? But when the BlogHer Estrogen Fest rolls around, I get all self-conscious about my neglected feet and crazy eyebrows.
Witness the crazy eyebrows for yourself. I found some ancient wax strips and a sugar waxing kit in the bathroom cabinet.
The wax strips are paraffin coated plastic. Into the plastic collection they go, unless I can find someone who Homemade bikini wax beeswax honey them. The Sally Hansen sugar wax kit seemed like a possibility, despite all the plastic packaging… until I read the ingredients.
The stuff is basically just candied sugar and water. I based my experiment on the Youtube Video D. Y Hair Removal Wax With Honey and Sugar because the recipe includes honey, which I thought would be nice for my skin although honey is not necessary. You can do it with plain sugar. Also, the recipe makes a very small amount. Check out this video if you need to make a larger quantity for waxing legs or other body parts.
I realize I could skip this whole process by simply tweezing my brows.

I cut some strips from an old raggedy pair of flannel pajamas that were no longer wearable.
Because unlike actual wax, sugar wax dissolves in warm water, so I could just rinse them off and reuse. Um… this is what I mean by dangerous. The stuff really, really works. Do not follow my example and end up with a big chunk of missing eyebrow right before the BlogHer conference! Turns out, the situation was not as bad as I thought. I went ahead and waxed the other brow, much more carefully, and then came back and attempted to clean up the bad situation with a bit more waxing.
And then I filled in the missing bit with a Dr. Hauschka eyeliner pencil that I rarely use and forgot I even had. The pencil is wood with what I believe is a metal cap. I know, sometimes plastic disguises itself as metal. But this cap also sounds like metal when dropped on the floor.
Not too bad from a distance, right? So how does sugar wax feel compared to actual wax? There was much less redness too. By the way, Homemade bikini wax beeswax honey you ever noticed how weird eyebrows start to look when you stare at them long enough?
