Being hairless in the right areas is one of the things women are concerned with. If you don’t know, I’m a balbon (hairy Harriet) haha. So I’m really into the whole shaving, waxing and lasering of my unwanted hair. When I got an invite to visit and try the services of Wink Waxing Studio, I didn’t hesitate and booked an appointment right away.

I did just that and one weekday I was able to visit Wink Laser & Wax Studio.
The Wink signature design has become quite iconic. When I Instagram’ed this photo, a lot were able to guess where I was! 😉
What is the Wink experience?
Why sacrifice for beauty when you can relax instead? For Semi-permanent Hair Removal, we use a special diode laser machine that won’t leave painful burn marks on your skin as traditional machines do. In fact, the warm sensation feels more like a relaxing hot stone massage!
Our Face and Body Waxing sessions won’t involve any clamped-down whimpering either. Our professional waxing system utilizes hard wax for sensitive areas and soft wax for bigger areas. In addition, we apply pre- and post-wax care products to protect your skin.
Our policy on hygiene will make germophobes rejoice! At Wink, we never reuse sheets, towels or spatulas, and our technicians always don gloves and a mask. Our guests get their own set of waxing implements, and we sanitize and sterilize like crazy in between each appointment.
The colorful, gender-neutral interiors serve as a visual reminder that your comfort is our foremost concern. Spacious suites ensure privacy and are designed to soothe your senses. Your boyfriend won’t have qualms with accompanying you here (we provide complimentary WIFI access) ‘Nuff said! 😉
So I opted for a Brazilian wax and underarm laser during my first visit.
Wink Laser & Wax Studio uses Berodin Wax (previously named Berins), a premium wax formulated by Wax Queen Lori Nestore together with notable inventor Christian des Garets. Berodin Waxes are based on patented formulations and are considered as new generation waxes. They are warmed at low heat and applied just above skin temperature, making them gentle and effective. The creamy texture makes it less brittle and sticky than traditional waxes. Wink Laser & Wax Studio is the exclusive Philippine distributor of Berodin Wax.
True enough the description about Wink is as accurate as the days of the week. The place is a neutral ground for both genders who would want to have a wax or laser sesh. It’s cozy enough to feel comfortable yet well-sanitised to feel protected from the thought of contamination. Above photo is the room where I had my Brazilian wax done. I am happy to report that my experience with Wink was the best I’ve had so far. The technician was very professional and really know what she was doing. After a few pulls here and there, we were done! Best part? It wasn’t messy and no repetition on a particular area, making post-waxing almost pain-free.
After my waxing session I was able to try their Diode laser. The procedure was a breeze! I barely felt any zapping, just a warm feeling as the Diode machine felt like a big roll-on deodorant. It was far from the worst feeling I was expecting. I was really impressed! According to my technician, Diode is more permanent than IPL. I shall talk about that on my next post where I can compare the difference.
Thank you Wink for the wonderful experience! I shall be back next month for my second session.
