Fugly or FURgly?
It is no secret that Strip: Ministry of Waxing is against fur – be it on our bare skin, bags, coats or shoes.
So it’s only natural for Strip to team up with international animal group. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for the UNFURGIVABLE campaign in the battle against Fur.
Join me in the Anti-Fur movement!

I met Chloe who gave me a rough idea what I was going to expect since this was not my first visit. =)
Walking to my room…
This was the room where I experienced Chocolate Wax!
There were 3 flavours of wax to choose from, Strawberry, Chocolate and Lavendar.
I had tried Strawberry Wax previously so I did Chocolate wax this time.
Before the waxing started, my Therapist gave me a Hygiene Pack to clean myself.
Like the other rooms at Strip, there were mantra being scribbled on the walls for me to read so as to divert my attention from the waxing pain.
All in all, I had about 14 strips on my front and 2 strips at the back. Yes, towards the end, I actually turned my back at my therapist, haha, weird eh?
Throughout my session, the waxing procedure was very swift and accurate.
Stripology, Hygiene, Speed, Quality.
Quoted from my previous blogpost on Strawberry Wax:
“Hygiene as in every waxing dips their customers have, the Waxpert is always using a brand new “ice cream stick”. There will be NO chance of double dip. Double dip as in using an “ice cream stick”, dip once, apply on the skin, dip again, strictly NO!
Speed, especially Brazilian Wax Virgins, we will want to have the waxing process done once and for all in a swift so as to lessen and get over with the pain! And yes, Strip Waxperts wax at full speed with good accuracy!
Quality, in their products. All their products are specially formulated and will never have imitated ones!”
How the wax was applied
An ice cream stick was used to scoop the warm wax, Therapist will wait for the wax to cool down for a few seconds before spreading into the skin area. Wait for a minute or so, the wax will be harden enough to be peeled off, this is what i termed it as “strip”. Immediately after stripping, Therapist will press her palm on the area to calm the skin, it works! The same procedure will repeat. As and when, Therapist will use the hygiene pack to clean the skin area before the next strip.
During the session, out of the 16 strips, only 2 strips gave me the most pain, but all pain were bearable. I just had to breathe in and be ready. Therapist will use her palms to press on my skin immediately after each strip, so as to calm and soothe the skin.
I was allowed to ask the Therapist to press longer as and when I needed it.
Staff at Strip are very friendly and professional. They sure know how to make me comfortable.
