Traffic has been crazy, so I prefer to get beauty stuff done at home when I can. Lately, my sisters and I have been maximizing the services of our go-to waxing lady, Ms. Elisa. She de-fuzzes everything: brows, underarms, your bikini area, arms, legs, linea negra for preggy ladies, and even your toes. She also makes her own wax from a concoction of lemon and white sugar. Took a few photos of her with my iPhone while she did my lower legs, so you can see her in action:
I like that Ms. Elisa is pretty thorough. She meticulously plucks stray strands that are left behind or too short for the wax to grab (I suggest you ask her to use your own tweezers). She double-dips though, so if you’re O.C. about hygiene, then it’s best that you go to a proper salon. I know a few girls who have gotten Brazilians with her and are quite happy with the results. Me? I’m a bit of a germ freak, so I only let her strip my lower legs and toes.
To set an appointment, text or call Ms. Elisa through the number below (she services the Metro Manila area). Take note that she also decreases or increases her rate depending on the amount of hair you have. Oh, and I still give her a little tip after she waxes me. Here are her deets:
