Nanny Rose's Sticks and Pulls

Nanny Rose's Sticks and Pulls

I have never tried waxing and when Amanda contacted me if I am interested to review their product. I was in all honesty very hesitant. I have heard some people saying that it was very painful and all that nasty stuffs. Ergo, shaving is the best option for me. I hardly have noticeable hair on my legs. I shave monthly.. sometimes it will take me 3-4 months. I was really curious in trying this since it can be used hot or can be used as is.  I have seen those wax where you have to heat it. I hate the idea of hot wax on my skin. 
It was in a eco friendly packaging. I love the fact that it is made in the Philippines and all natural.
A little note from Nanny Rose!! Sweet!

A little information given to me by Amanda about this product:


It's called Nanny Rose's Sticks&Pulls and is exclusively distributed by Watsons. It's an all natural hair remover in form of honey wax and is made of only ingredients closest to nature. The sticky pot is a combination of locally produced honey, sugar and calamansi juice - a concoction that will keep skin smooth, hydrated and will even exfoliate dead skin cells. It contains no harsh chemicals or ingredients that can cause allergies that is why it can be used on sensitive and delicate areas. Plus, it is all natural and Philippine-made.
The kit comes in three sizes: 200 grams (Php 279.75), 100 grams (Php 169.75), and 50 grams (Php 99.75) and is available in Watsons and SM Department Stores with Watsons.


What is included in the kit?
 microwavable jar
wooden applicator
fabric strips

Directions for use:
To use, just stir the product with the wooden applicator and smear it onto clean, dry skin. You can also dash a little powder on the area to be waxed to make sure that no unwanted residue is left. The product should be applied/smeared in the direction of hair growth. Place the strip of cloth on top and even out air bubbles. Then pull the end of the strip towards the opposite direction - now, against hair growth. 

For this review, I honestly used it!! (this is to affirm the fact that I use and try products before reviewing them although no picture of before and after shot is shown on this post.. that's what I mean by using "honestly used it" haha ) I was really scared at first but it was not painful at all. I used it without following the directions and it was not really good then I strictly followed the directions and it removed my hair easily.  I also tried it on my boyfriend's hairy legs. And it also worked!! I was thinking if it can removed thick hairs too so i tried it on him. I read a blog post saying that this product did not work for her. Hence, product may work for me but not for you or vice versa. My tip if your would like to try this is that you must press the fabric unto your skin gently to insure that the wax adheres to your skin and also to the fabric. Also, make sure you follow the directions very well. I took pictures of my legs but I decided not to post it because of my scars from psoriasis. I used about 2 weeks ago and no sign of hair growth yet!! 

Have a nice day everyone!

  3. i have always been a fan of veet wax strips though lately i have tried other DIY waxing kits too like the one from epilin & also glamworks...
    it's a bit messy compare to wax trips but it does the job.

    it's good that you didn't find waxing the 1st time painful!
    ^_^

    i prefer waxing over shaving kasi it's really smooth & hairs really thin out!

  8. Don, my boyfriend also suffers from psoriasis. His flakes are all over his head, I had to beg him to have his head shaved so I can treat it. :( Poor thing. My grandfather also suffers from this condition but his just broke out when he got really old and he looks super kawawa. :( Seriously, he turns all pale/white because of the flakes and when their off, he looks like he got an instant tan. Can you picture it?
    Anyhoo, just sharing. :)
