I Survived: My Pink Parlour Brazilian Waxing Experience


Hello dearies! I visited Pink Parlour's new castle at A-Venue Mall in Makati last week to experience their specialty, the Brazilian waxing treatment. If you haven't heard of or tried brazilian waxing before, it is actually a procedure where your hair "down there" will be completely removed by pulling the hair from the roots with the use of wax. Hope that made sense. :p

Pink Parlour's new place is so attractive, it will make heads turn.

Seriously, I thought I'd die! :p My classmates from law school told me that the procedure was really painful (they had it done at another salon, by the way) making me hesitate at first. Plus, I've never tried waxing "down there" before so imagine my fear before the procedure started. I only stopped panicking once I was already in their waxing chamber. :)

Ms. Rosalie, my technician, was very careful in doing the waxing treatment especially that it was my first time. She always makes sure that the wax is not too hot to prevent my skin from being burned. She also kept on reminding me to take a deep breath whenever she starts pulling. The deep breaths actually helped. The procedure was very hygienic, too.  I was watching Ms. Rosalie do her thing and I never saw her double dip the sticks. The best thing I could say about this experience is that she made me feel really comfortable (which I think is very important) since the area being treated is considered private. We actually had a nice conversation. Lol! The entire procedure went really fast. I actually thought it would last for an hour or so, but it was done in less than 20 minutes. 

Cute chandeliers everywhere! It indeed felt like a real castle!

Was it painful? Yes, but it was definitely tolerable. I actually find waxing my underarms using a diy strip wax more painful because it leaves a stinging sensation and the skin comes off sometimes. At Pink Parlour, they only use hard wax so there's no tendency for your skin to be burned or come off. The wax does not actually penetrate the skin because of the powder applied prior so the pain is lessened. Moreover, the wax they are using is really efficient that there is no need to repeat waxing the same area twice. There's less pain indeed and that's the advantage of Pink Parlour's brazilian waxing treatment! 

Spotted Ms. Ana Gonzales! :)


Honestly, I think this procedure is not just for a hair-free summer. Waxing "down there" is very important for athletes, too. I wish I have tried this when I was still cheerleading! I had to shave down there because I don't want anything peeking while I do my heel stretches. The hair was so itchy when it was growing back since it was not removed from the roots. I also recommend this treatment for soon-to-be-mommies, especially if you prefer not to shave down there before giving birth! Just be sure to get permission from your OB before going through the waxing treatment. But if you simply wanted to feel clean and free down there, this procedure is definitely for you!

I survived! :)

  4. Are you alone in the room with the technician during the whole process? I wonder how this feels! I'm kinda scared but part of me want to try it too. I do my waxing at home, I never liked the wax strips, they don't get all the hairs!

    1. I was alone with the technician. :) They use hard wax so it pretty much removes all the hair.
