Turns out, organic sugaring is not as scary as most people think and SGB_Team found out about it first-hand.
When SGB_Team stepped into the entrance of The Organic Room (once known as Flare Wellness), a beauty salon in the heart of Central Business District, SGB_Team was uneasy because we were about to try organic sugaring on ourselves for the first time. Every leg takes 30 minutes for the process to fully take place.
Organic sugaring is a traditional hair removal technique that uses 100% natural ingredients from lemon, water and sugar. With soft organic sugar and natural fibre stripes, this method does not result in pain when compared with other technique in the modern world today. This care is very safe to be applied on various parts of the body so that your body will be smooth!
To name a few parts you can apply the organic sugar, you can use them on your eyebrow, bikini area to feet area. So, how does it work? Using gloves for cleanliness purpose, the aesthetician will spread out the sugar on your body in the opposite direction of hair growth using a wooden spatula. This sugar mixture will be allowed to sink into hair follicle to reach the root before being pulled out. FYI, sugar coating does not remove skin layer, but it only takes out hair and leaves you skin smooth. This procedure is still accompanied with pain, but it is definitely more comfortable and a lot less painful compared to conventional chemical waxes.
The explanation mentioned above may sound good, but most people are not a big fan of fair removal. However, Sharifah Fazzeleen, founder of The Organic Room, is a holistic facialist that can make anyone’s first time into an interesting experience. She acknowledges the fear and concerns of first timers, and she will make you feel right at home with her friendly manner and attention for any felt pain!
Yep, once more, sugaring will cause a slight pain, but it is a lot more minor compared to waxing. If you are in transition between shaving to sugaring, you might feel more pain than those who usually do waxing. The more you come here for treatment, the less painful it will become because your hair will be less thick with every session.
SGB_Team had the time to look around the products that The Organic Room uses because we absolutely love the smell and touch to the skin! Sharifah explained that The Organic Room only uses environmentally friendly products with cruelty free, safe and organic certified. Pssst, if you’re curious to try it out, the products are also sold in their website! Joik Regenerating Night Cream with Calendula and Sea-Buckthorn Oil (S$48) and Esse Cocoa Exfoliator (S$69) are some of the favourite products here. Do they ship overseas? They most assuredly do! So, visit their website now and shop for your next favourite item here!
In this private meeting, you can also get other care such as facial, anti-ageing, bridal services and relaxing foot soak. Do you need an appointment? Yes, you do because this will ensure the best service and time that the staff will be able to provide.
Rise up after an hour when Sharifah exclaim “Done!” to see your legs without hair for three to five weeks. Yaaay!
Here are a few important tips for post sugaring: the skin care routine is very much so similar to waxing to prevent ingrown hairs.
Things to avoid: scrubbing, skin tight outfit around the body parts that were treated and sauna usage for two days. Exercising, intimate relationship and hot bath is still allowed.
Moral lesson from this article: just like other hair removal treatment, sugaring needs some commitment. So what do you think? Will you try it out?
