DIY hair removal wax

the blogger said its not painful. so i might actually try it. =D

Waxing is one of the most popular methods of hair removal. Personally, I prefer waxing because I get more ingrown hair and blotches from shaving and depilatory creams. Out of all the methods, not only do I find waxing as the most effective in hair removal, but it also takes the longest time for hair to grow back.

Over the years, I’ve been going to this affordable waxing salon called Lay Bare to get my waxing done. They use cold wax and I find that it is less painful than hot wax. But since I’m flat broke (and stuck at home), I opted to try the DIY wax. Thanks to my good friend, Google I found the perfect recipe for a homemade wax. For this, you will need the following:

– 1 cup brown sugar

– 1/4 cup honey

– juice of 1/2 lemon or if not available, 3 calamansi

Wow, time flies

its been a long time. its now December and it’s almost finals week here on campus. Today.. there is a festive social for the design majors. i think there will be drinks.. i hope they have no alcoholic ones. not about that life. >.< my cousin and some friends would be proud of me that i am leaving my dorm and the fact that i have to be formal-ish.

so i did finally try the fall trend makeup. products i used were:
NYC cheek glow: west side wine
Kate moss Rimmel London
cover girl 3 in 1 in twany
forever 21 black gel eyeliner
NYC colors individual eyes: brown eyes
it came out pretty good but i think the lipstick was a bit drying had to reapply it every now and again

Cleaning

so every since  I’ve been using the St.Ives face scrubby thingy, my face ( usually oily) is Matte no more shine… well a little on my nose. but Yeah! no more shine. also my pores seems to be getting smaller. probably just need a good scrub. and the spots on my face are fading certain ones anyway… >_> but i have to say i am more comfortable doing more full faced foundation makeup looks.  but that’s pretty much it. in school i am currently waiting to register for classes for next semester.  freshmen go last… which kinda sucks because i have been ready for quite some time now….on a more exciting note my FAVORITE TV show has been picked up for another season HOORAY..now it only January would come along so i could watch season four!
