I visited Wink Laser & Wax Studio in Taguig for my first wax treatment. It’s a fairly new establishment that I’ve been hearing about a lot, and it really caught my eye because it looks so clean, even down to the branding and design.
I went to get my legs done because, as you can probably tell from my swatches, I am a fairly hairy person. Someone I dated before even exclaimed, “Oh my God, you’re a bear!” after I pointed out my arm hairs. But anyway. My biggest problem area = my legs. I went shave-crazy when I was a young’un and now I am paying for it because I honestly look like a troll when I grow out my leg hair.
From the moment I laid my eyes on their reception desk with these cheeky cards, I knew I would love it there:
The area is deceptively small, but the waxing rooms are pretty spacious. Everything is clean and sanitary. The white floors are pretty spotless.
Check out the trolley with the wax and all the unused spatulas! I went for a soft wax, and they use plastic spatulas that they regularly sterilize. They also use disposable, non-woven strips. Their website, which is also very cutely and cleanly designed, actually details their Hygiene Policy well, which I super appreciate. (You can find it under FAQ.)
The counter against the wall has different oils and ointments to help with the stress of hair removal. My therapist, Mylene, applied some hydro cortisone to help calm down the irritated skin.
This is the view from lying down on the leather-lined waxing bed that’s also covered with paper that gets thrown out after each use (obviously). Kurt Vonnegut has ruined asterisks for me, forever.
I actually really appreciate the bareness of the room, because there isn’t a lot going on and you can tell that it’s freaking clean, which I suppose is a major concern when you are pulling hairs from your body. I think that this is the ideal place to get a Brazilian, though I don’t know if I am ready for that yet, lol.
The entire procedure was pretty painless and I love how my legs did not feel sticky or waxy after the treatment.
After the treatment, they give you an after-care pamphlet to ensure a no-bumps experience. 🙂
I was going to show you my ‘before’ photo, but I thought to spare you. There are still a few hairs on my legs, but my therapist actually told me before the treatment that the wax was going to grip hairs that were about 1/4-inch long. I wasn’t really all that surprised—like I said, my leg hairs are atrocious. The after-care pamphlet also recommended regular waxing every 4-6 weeks for a smoother appearance.
As for my after shot, I also decided against it because I am a peklat kween. I have bruises and scars. I do have the photos, so if I do a months-long review, you can look forward to photographic proof.
Wink Laser & Wax Studio was definitely a pleasure to visit! I think that for major waxing projects or those that are delicate ones, it’s worth checking out. Their prices are posted here, and their services are pretty extensive and specific. Compared to most waxing salons, I think the prices are higher, but this place is seriously spotless.
I really appreciate how easy it was to book an appointment, too. I picked a service for myself and my sister, picked a time, and confirmed via SMS message when they sent me a confirmation notification.
Wink Laser & Wax Studio can be found on the 3rd floor of the C2 Building, which you can access through a lobby beside Nolita.
