A WAXAWAY PRODUCT HAUL REVIEW: WAX STRIPS, NEW AQUA ROLL ON KIT & BUMP ERAISER MEDI PASTE + TRIPLE ACTION LOTION !



Hi beauties,

I know summer is officially over but that really doesn't stop us from getting silky and smooth looking legs this season! It's time to get your waxing session on at home and what better way to spend it on awesome Waxaway products! They have many products which may be suitable for you and I love how you get the extra value in them such as soft quality wax strips to sachets of conditioning oil wipes! 

I'm so excited to do this review because it's a relevant post for those who just want to step outside the box and see what other brands such as Waxaway & Bump Eraiser can offer in their new product range. 

There are so many brands of wax to choose from whenever you're at your local chemist or supermarket, but wait till you read my thoughts on these beautiful salon products by Waxaway and Bump Eraiser. 

In this review, you'll learn all about the following new products that CaronLab has launched this season: 
  • WAXAWAY - Sensitive - Ready to use Wax Strips 
  • WAXAWAY - NEW! Aqua wax Roll on Kit (3 in 1 total body waxing) 
  • BUMP ERAISER - Medi Paste 
  • BUMP ERAISER - Triple Action lotion

Scroll down to see why these products gave me soft and smooth looking skin! 



WAXAWAY - Sensitive - Ready to use Wax Strips 

These Waxaway Ready to use Wax strips for sensitive skin comes in a really convenient and compact blue box. It contains 20 wax strips with a softer fabric feel to the strip and they're so easy to use - so much you can also use it on the GO! (If you were really needed to wax off any excess hairs on your body + considering you had oil wipes in hand too..)

These strips are made for sensitive and delicate skin so you don't get irritation when using the wax strips. They have been designed for an easy, quick hair removal on your body and they also have a "hypoallergenic" salon formula which is present on the soft fabric strip where it's able to gently remove the hair from your body (legs or arms). 

From using these wax strips, they were super easy and mess-free to use. I've used it about a week ago and I don't even see the hairs on my legs growing yet! It's said to last about four weeks and I sure will be counting! I don't mind waxing my legs often because I find that my legs look smoother for longer and the hairs grow back slowly. I used the wax strips on my legs to rid of any excess leg hair. It took me only a minute to heat up the wax strip - by rubbing the strip with my hands together. It's very easy to peel the two sheets apart and apply the sheet with the sticky wax onto your legs or your ideal waxing spot. Once it's laid firm, I would lift the strip in a one-way motion and I do not experience any pain at all. (Waxing is really not that bad!) The process is repeated so that I cover most parts of my legs and after it all, I felt my legs looking smooth and silky.

I found the strips to effectively eliminate most of my leg hairs and it felt really smooth and soft. The box came with 20 x wax strips, 1 x sachet of After care wipe and 1 x sachet of Bump Eraiser Medi paste. The After care wipe was amazing as it fully conditioned my legs by making it all smooth and soft. It also removed all the wax residue left behind from waxing and helped soothe any redness on my skin. For such a small packet, it can do many wonder such as replenish your legs and skin making sure that it stays smooth looking. 
As for the small sachet of Bump Eraiser's Medi Paste included in the box (which I will give a full detailed review down below) basically is a highly concentrated spot treatment that eliminates any ingrown hairs, bumps and pimples! I call it the 'magical ingrown treatment.'

For the price and value of the product, you get covered with the whole body wax treatment and it's seriously worth it if you're wanting a home style salon waxing treatment for your body. I also thought it's worth mentioning, that this wax strip product is super ideal for if you were going overseas and needed a quick fix to your hairy legs! Sometimes, carrying a shaver requires us to carry Universal adapters which can always be a pain! So...the easier way is to just pack a box of Waxaway wax strips in your suitcase, because it comes with plenty of strips and with the necessary samples of the conditioning wipes and ingrown treatment for your skin. It's definitely super handy for me and it will be a "must bring necessity" for when I next travel overseas. 

Overall, I had no problems with using these wax strips as my skin didn't show any signs of irritation or redness. It's definitely a high quality product that can remove even the most coarse hair you have on your legs. It's totally a winner for convenient wax strips - suitable for sensitive skin! I am giving this a 5/5 stars! 

Positives:
  • Comes in 20 wax soft fabric strips. 
  • No heating is required. (Just rub the strip between your palms together.) 
  • Leaves no irritation or redness after waxing.
  • Removed my coarse hair on my legs effectively. 
  • Comes with a conditioning wipe and ingrown treatment sachet. 
  • Worth it!!!!
Negatives:
  • Zilch! 
Beauty tips:
  • Hold strips between your hand/palm and rub for 1 minute to warm up the strip and get it ready for waxing! 
  • Waxaway strips cannot be removed with water, use Waxaway After Waxing oil or Waxaway After care lotion.

WAXAWAY - NEW! Aqua wax Roll on Kit (3 in 1 total body waxing) 


This is the new WAXAWAY Aqua wax roll kit which is made for 3-1 total body waxing including for face + small areas, delicate areas and lastly for your legs and body! 

The product is essentially a 'Roll on kit' which is made for home waxing. It's different as it contains a microwaveable cartridge which comes with a roll-on application! There is no need for a wooden spoon or spatula in this process. What is great about this wax kit is that there is no sticky residue left behind as it water soluble which means it can simply be washed off with water! It comes with three unique rollers to suit all relevant areas of the body - so this only makes waxing easier and convenient for you. It's a safe product to use even on your face, bikini, legs and body. The Aqua wax doesn't even contain any harsh chemicals making this very VEGAN FRIENDLY!  (Woooo vegan love) 

When you open the pack, it comes with the following: 
  • 1 x 80ml Wax cartridge 
  • 3 x Roller different type of heads
  • 12 x Reusable wax strips
Furthermore, it also comes with a cute sample sachet of Bump Eraiser's 'Medi paste' perfect for treating any ingrown hair or pimples on the skin after waxing. 

I have tried so many types of waxing treatments such as the wax pots, strips and so forth. This is definitely mess-free to use and I love how I can do this right before I shower because you can just wash away the wax residue! The wax removed the hair on my body effectively and I needed to fully dedicate myself to a session of home waxing to really see great results!

 This is my favourite type of waxing product because being an easy to use product, you just simply pop the wax cartridge into the microwave where it heats up real fast of about 10 seconds. I found with using the rollers is that it dispenses an equal amount onto the skin so this makes it an ideal product where I don't even have to measure up how much wax to use. I just clip the heads to the wax cartridge and off I go waxing my legs. It's that easy! The strips are re-usable and this is perfect because I can just clean them again for another time usage. 

The wax washes off easily and I am glad that I can remove the excess whilst showering. I would like to see them selling re-fills for the Aquawax range as I would love to use this in the longer-term. 

Overall, for this amazing wax-roll-on kit I am giving this a 4.5/5 stars! Superb waxing kit! 

Positives:
  • The wax cartridge heaps up real quick in the microwave in under less than 10 seconds.
  • Very convenient to use.
  • Comes in three types of heads. 
  • Water soluble, washes off under water. 
  • Wax strips are reuse-able
  • Mess free. 
Negatives:
  • Zilch! 
Beauty tips:
  • If your hairs aren't removed in the first time this can be due to dead skin cells, so be sure to exfoliate before waxing. 
  • Make sure to pull the strip back quickly as possible and close to the skin. 
  • Take extreme care when waxing near your face and bikini line.. can be quite sensitive there! 
  • Use Bump-Eraiser Medi paste to eliminate any ingrown hairs after waxing!

BUMP ERAISER - Medi Paste

I've spoke so much about the Bump Eraiser Medi Paste and it's about time I review what the buzz is all about with this amazing ingrown skin product! It basically is a highly concentrated spot treatment which works to prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs, razor bumps and pimples. It acts to reduce redness and swelling while preventing further infection. It's been scientifically proven with Salicylic acid, Tea tree oil, Triclosan and Vitamin A to draw out any infection rapidly without causing any irritation or trauma to the skin. This paste is definitely suitable for all around the body and can be used twice a day. 

I tend to get ingrown hair from removing my leg hairs and it can be quite frustrating. I am so glad I got to test out the Bump Eraiser Medi paste because it can be used just anywhere on the body and is supposed to prevent any ingrown hair. So far, I have not noticed any ingrown hairs and I am glad it's working for me. The consistency of the product is in a white, thick cream where it is smooth and dense. The smell consists of tea tree oil and ointment mixed together. It's quite pleasant and comfortable to use and isn't harsh or anything. The cream feels quite cool and soothing on skin. It absorbs easily and does not feel thick when applied on. It leaves a light protective clear layer on skin where it made my skin feel super smooth and soft. I am so glad I used this product after my hair removal treatment. 

 If you're suffering from really bad ingrown hair, use the Medi paste daily by massaging the cream into the infected follicle for a good week or so. You should start seeing a slight improvement to your skin's condition. This cream really is a miracle treatment because gradually you'll find your skin looking healthier and with no ingrown hairs! I used the Medi paste after each hair removal session to ensure that I am preventing any ingrown hairs from growing and so far the results are looking good. 

A brand-winning product that you should definitely use if you're experiencing ingrown hairs on your body. I am giving this a full 5/5 stars rating! Best invention ever!

Positives:
  • Removes ingrown hairs, bumps and pimples on the skin. 
  • Highly concentrated cream. 
  • You'll start noticing results from day 2. 
  • Scientifically proven with Salicylic acid, Tea tree oil, Triclosan and Vitamin A 
Negatives:
  • Zilch! 
Beauty tips:
  • Use after hair removal session to prevent ingrown hairs, bumps and pimples from surfacing

BUMP ERAISER - Triple Action Lotion



If you need a triple action lotion, then look at BUMP ERAISER'S TRIPLE ACTION LOTION! It's basically a 3-1 ingrown hair treatment. This is used PRIOR to hair removal for ease and removal of hair. Secondly, it's used AFTER hair removal as the enzymes contained in the lotion weaken the papilla and hair follicle by retarding hair growth. Thirdly, it works to ensure you prevent ingrown hair from coming back. It's also ideal for those with coarse and thick hair. It's suitable for all parts of the body and to get the best results, be sure to use this on a daily basis. 

The lotion is another alternative for if you are wanting to treat any ingrown hairs. The paste is ideal but if you're wanting a lotion base, you're looking at it right now! I felt that when I first applied this onto my skin that it left a slight tingle. I would recommend this lotion for those seeking for a smoother application. After using this lotion daily, I found my ingrown hairs to have decreased as compared to the time of using no ingrown treatment. This lotion allows hair to grow straight and not stray into infections or create red looking bumps on your skin. 

Overall, it's a simple type of lotion for smoother application to prevent ingrown hairs. Certainly does the trick but I like how Bump Eraiser offers us two types of products in different consistencies to use on our skin. Hence, I am giving this product a 4.5/5 stars! 

Positives:
  • Triple action lotion 3-1 
  • Ideal for those with coarse and thick looking hair. 
  • Smoother application. 
Negatives:
  • Zilch! 
Beauty tips:
  • Use daily before and after hair removal process to prevent further ingrown hairs.
