What are the few beauty issues we women face? Yes, unwanted hair. Aminin, issue talaga natin ang unwanted hair, lalo na if you’re like me who is very balbon (read: Hairy Harry! haha) Here’s a chismis, I cannot exactly remember when but I had to shave my legs for a fashion show I did back when I was nene. Ika-nga ng nanay ko, I was a balbonic beauty! NKKLK. But seriously, in our culture, being hairless (in unwanted areas that is) translates to being pretty. I find myself alternately waxing and shaving but I mainly do the latter because with waxing there are two things to consider: hair growth and pain. Although my hair grows really fast, it’s the pain that I cannot tolerate much. So when I got an invite to try this precision waxing product that is now available here in Manila, I was intrigued. Good thing I was with my partner aka hon, Tin aka Manila Fashion Observer who also tried Lycon along with me.
Lycon was established in Australia in 1978, by internationally acclaimed beauty therapist, Lydia Jordane, that’s her in the photo. According to Lydia, Lycon was created years after finding the right waxing product for her personal use. Her issues with unwanted hair started back when she was in school, peer pressure led her to shave and that started her journey in finding the perfect wax to use. Few years later, her wax empire grew and now is the wax choice in the top spas and salons in over 55 countries.
Formulated with the finest natural resins, pure Australian bees wax and sensuous aromatherapy, LYCON delivers superior results, removing stubborn hair as short as 1mm. Yes, 1mm! The LYCON Precision Waxing range consists of hot waxes, strip waxes, LYCON’s unique Lycojet and LYCOtex waxes, complemented with harmonising PrePost waxing lotions.
The light pink one you see is called the SoBerry Delicious Hot Wax. It smells good enough to eat with its strawberry scent! It’s extra gentle and ideal for all delicate areas.
This pretty strip wax is called Active Gold, it glows like gold and contains soothing benefits of Chamomile and the finest grade of gold Micro Mica, for gentle and efficient waxing. Strip waxes are known for their superior glide, extra long grip and a non-sticky finish and no skin drag.
Rosette Hot Wax is a LYCON legend. This creamy pink classic with Chamomile, Rose, Titanium Dioxide is exceptional for extra sensitive areas. Perfect for Brazillian waxing.
LYCOtec White hot wax smells of coconut! With Titanium Dioxide, Coconut Oil and Vanilla, this high tech formula has new generation resins which makes it super smooth, ultra-pliable and don’t break on removal. It glides on skin super thinly, making them efficient and extra economical for salons.
LYCON Pre-waxing Oil has Apricot Oil and Jasmine, it has a nurturing essential oils that soften and prepare skin prior to all hot waxing. It also protects and prevents wax sticking to the skin, making waxing virtually painless, clean and efficient.
Here’s Tin trying the Active Gold Strip Wax. See how thin it is? It’s barely there no?
LYCOtec White Hot Wax.
SoBerry Delicious is a bit thicker in terms of consistency. I love that when Lydia pulled it off, it was easy yet efficient.
Look at how it removed even short hair! We were definitely amazed.
Now I tried the Rosette Hot Wax on my upper lip. Usually in this particular area, most salons would advise to either have it thread or let the hair grow a little longer. But minsan, that’s kadiri right? You tend to look like you’re sporting a mustache. Eeeep!
See the little white stuff on the wax? That’s actually fine hair! Almost invisible to the naked eye unless scrutinized. Amazeballs I tell you.
Here’s a look at my hairy leg, see the growing hair that has gotten thicker due to constant shaving? That’s ingrown!
After applying LYCON Rosette Hot Wax in the area where there’s ingrown hair, I didn’t expect a lot would actually come off.
Well will you look at that! LYCON Rosette Hot Wax has practically removed the root of the ingrown hair. I barely felt any pain too, given that I am one with low tolerance. It indeed was virtually painless with minimal feeling of skin pulling and irritation. I am greatly impressed by how good the product is.
Thank you Ms. Lydia for that insightful demonstration about your products, LYCON Precision Waxing. Tin and I were amazed at how efficient LYCON is when it comes to virtually painless precision waxing!
