Soft sugaring is a sugaring paste made from honey, sugar and lemon juice designed for sensitive skin areas in the front and back. It may be used for the underarms area and any part of the body, even the face and eyebrows. Soft sugaring will start to solidify as the temperature of the sugar begins to cool down.

As opposed to waxing, sugaring leaves the skin smooth soft and clean, even before aftercare. Our products are created with only the best, all natural ingredients.

Anything anyone does improves through training, so you should realize that you won’t be a sugaring professional starting from the first time you use this procedure. It usually requires 2 to 3 times in order to master sugaring techniques for hair removal.
You need to understand how hair grows from your skin in order to understand how the sugaring technique works. When you shave hair off using a razor, you only remove the hair shaft and the hair quickly regrows thicker and coarser. But when you use the sugaring method of hair removal, hair is removed beneath the epidermis so it takes about 5 to 7 times longer for hair to grow back.
Sometimes there is a very tiny amount of bleeding, so don’t worry, as this shows that your hair is removed from the papilla and this should make you happy, as any hair removed from the papilla will never grow back again.
The first step to be sugared is to have clean and dry skin; and we also recommend that you use the sugaring cleanser and sugaring sterilized powder to complete the drying process and sterilize your skin. Do not forget to remove any excess powder. Powder also plays another role, which is preventing sugaring paste to stick to your skin. However, be sure to allow sugaring to stick to your hair so that it will be stronger and work better.
Apply sugaring in a cool room or in front of a fan. Try to prepare the best environment to avoid sweating during sugaring, as sweating makes the process of sugaring harder and may cause irritation. If it is too hot, sugaring may stick to your skin.
The sugaring solution works best when it is allowed to sit at room temperature for a few hours. If it is too cold it may be hard to get out of the jar and you will need to warm the sugaring for few seconds in a microwave or a hot water basin.
Always check the temperature of the sugaring solution prior to applying. It must be slightly warm, but not hot. (Around 100F.)
Practicing the correct technique of sugaring will help you to absolutely avoid having any residue on the skin. However, if any sugaring solution residue is left over on your skin, don’t worry, as it is easily soluble in water. You can always remove any sugaring solution from your skin using warm water.
If you are going to continue sugaring, remember to dry your skin very well and apply more powder before reapplying more sugaring solution.
If sugaring becomes too sticky, get a new piece of sugaring and stretch it diagonally over the sticky area and then pull quickly. Whenever you feel sweaty, add the appropriate amount of powder and then continue sugaring. Do not over add the powder. Though sugaring is the best natural way to remove short hair, very short hair is a little bit harder to remove, so allow a period of growth for at least 6 to 8 days.
Apply sugaring against the direction of hair growth and pull the sugaring in the same direction of hair growth……Repeat if the hair is not removed completely.
It is preferred that you use some toner after sugaring to close your skin pores.
Also, using sugaring serum and azulene oil helps in delaying the future hair growth.
We manufacture 3 kinds of sugaring: soft to use with strips and sometimes a spatula, solid that is left to dry and then pulled off,
and standard, which can be used with strips, and a spatula in the traditional way.
HOW TO USE
If it is your first time using sugaring please read carefully the following instructions
Warm Sugaring in a heater or microwave or hot water like in the videos. (5 seconds for the 3 oz – 10 seconds for 8 oz – 12 seconds for 10 oz – 30 seconds for 33 oz) time may vary according to the inside container quantity. if you already used half of the quantity so make half of the time.Do not overheated.
Test the sugaring to don’t hurt yourself. Remember sugaring Texture after warming should be like hard honey
Take a small piece, mix and stretch till reach the creamy white color and consistency (texture) should be soft like a chewing gum
Start with clean and dry skin. We recommend that you use pre-treatment sugaring cleanser and sterilized powder to prevent sugaring paste sticking to your skin and to help the sugaring to adhere to your hair.
If it is hard for you to see the area on which you are applying it, we recommend that you work in front of a mirror.
Apply sugaring to a small area against the direction of hair growth and then put on the strips and press it onto your skin. Rub the strip a few times…..Then, tightly stretch the skin with 1 hand and with the other in 1 quick movement pull the strip in the same direction of the hair growth ……Repeat if hair is not removed completely.
Stubborn hair needs to be removed with the circular technique when using sugaring or you may tweeze it.
If your skin is clean and completely dry you don’t have to re-clean or to use talc powder (skin should be without cream or lotions and better to have a shower and dry yourself very good before applying the sugaring).
Be sure that your under arms and bikini is completely dry.
You may remove your underarm hair in front of a mirror to see where to apply the sugaring.
If a piece of sugaring stick to your skin simply wash this part and dry very well then use another piece of sugaring ( this is the simplest way) we have explained in the video what to do (you may leave this part and take another small piece of sugaring without mixing and stick to the other part and remove it like in the video).
