Whenever I think of Strip, I think of witty, quirky ads and copy. I love their cheeky humour. I mean, with a name like Strip: Ministry of Waxing? And who can forget this tongue-in-cheek ad visual below?
Strip’s mission is to help girls get comfortable with the idea of waxing and hair removal, and to take the embarrassment factor out. I went for my first brazilian wax with them a couple of days ago (it’s not my first time doing brazilian wax, but it’s my first time with Strip) and after the session, I seriously wondered why I never went to them any earlier.
The biggest drawback for me when it comes to b-waxing is the ouch-factor. Seriously bracing myself for pain before the session, I was slightly awestruck to come out after the session unscathed. It was a lot less painful than I expected! If I were to rate it on a pain scale of 10, I would rate it a max of 6. For those who have done b-waxing, I’m sure a rating of 6/10 is nothing short of super amazing.
The b-waxing session that I went for is called, Strip-a-licious Sundae. After years of pruning bushes down under, Strip has come up with the perfect formula for the best waxing experience ever. Strip-a-licious Sundae is made up of Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla in one smooth sweet serve. Doesn’t this sound so super yummy?
Developed specially for first time Brazilian virgins, Strip’s strawberry wax packs the healing powers of Chamomile and Aloe Vera to calm and soothe even the most tender skin. Especially creamy and easy to apply, it removes hair with minimal discomfort and leaves skin enveloped in a comforting strawberry scent.
Formulated with Titanium Dioxide, Strip’s Chocolate Berry Wax is super efficient, removing even the shortest and most stubborn hair with gentle ease to leave skin completely smooth and fuzz-free.
The perfect topping, Strip’s very own Ice Cream has been specially formulated to comfort and calm skin, making it an excellent after-care product for post-Brazilian skin. Menthyl Lactate, a deritive of menthol, cools and soothes skin, while Ice Cream’s moisturizing properties also help to hydrate and soften skin simultaneously. Just a light application immediately relives and revitalizes.
I was given a Strip and b-wax 101 with Strip’s ‘Virgin Forest Rescue Book’ when I first got there.
These are individual packs of waxing equipment. Strip practices the ‘No Double Dipping’ commandment. This is so important for hygiene!!
Before I started my session, I was given 7 drops of Bach Flower Essence to calm and cast out any negative emotions.
They even have squeezy toys for you to squeeze the pain away!
There’s the squeezy toy and a visual of the Strip-a-licious sundae on the pillow in the room.

The entire b-waxing session was super fast – 30 mins tops. My therapist, Eva was very professional and my whole b-waxing experience at Strip was very comfortable, even relaxing I might say(!) and as I mentioned above, almost ouch-free.
This is Ice Cream, the ‘perfect topping’ cream for b-waxing after care. Even their creams sound and look yummy!
