Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
So how can you know which product – among the sea of thousands – is the best? Which does what you need it to do? Which ones are worth the extra money? Let me help. I don’t know every beauty product out there, but I’ve tested a lot of them and I’ll let you know which are worth the money and which are not.

What it is: Shobha Sugaring Kit
Why this should be in your bag:
Smooth skin is an essential part of looking your best. Most women that I know shave unwanted hair, but that can be really annoying. Not only do you have to do it every single day, but shaved hair usually grows back thicker and coarser than before. Sugaring is a great option for easy hair removal and is definitely my method of choice. I find it much less painful than waxing (pro!) and this formula by Shobha is all-natural and “free of parabens, dyes, fragrances, petrols, resins & waxes” (major pro!).
How to use it:
The kit comes with great, detailed instructions, but here is a rough rundown. First, your hair in the area must be at least 1/4 inch long. That means, your legs or armpits are going to be nasty for a week, but it’s worth it in the end! Once you’re ready to wax, heat it up in the microwave. I find 30 seconds is usually perfect. Make sure the area is nice and dry and apply the Talc-Free Powder. Then, spread the wax on, in the direction of hair growth, and rub a Denim Strip on top. After rubbing the strip down for a minute or so, pull the skin taut and pull of the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth. At first, you may have to go over an area a couple times to fully remove the hair. One of the best parts about this kit is simple clean-up; the all-natural wax dissolves in warm water.
CC Rating: A+
I loved using the Shobha Sugaring Kit. Not only did it successfully remove unwanted hair, but it was virtually painless. It’s compact and easy-to-store, and only requires a microwave and sink, making it totally dorm-friendly. I’ve been using this kit now for about a month and have noticed significantly finer hair in the areas that I’m sugaring. I can’t wait to keep using and seeing results. Another great thing about this kit is that it’s all-natural so you won’t get any funky reactions or side-effects like you can with drugstore waxing kits.
I highly recommend the Shobha Sugaring Kit for keeping your skin silky smooth!
