"I should add about doing the lashes: I do put both pads under the eyes at the beginning of the service. First I apply some petroleum jelly lightly under the eyes and on the top of the cheek (careful not to get on lower lashes). I use two pads,…"

"Yes the Aloe is from Satin Smooth.  Make sure the skin is dry before applying wax. Apply it to the skin after waxing as well."

"Pre-treat the skin with Aloe to help moisturize the skin.  If the skin is too dry it will pull the moisture from the wax , leaving wax on the skin.  If this happens, small sections will help remove the wax left on the skin.  In the…"

Then I had a waxing experience go wrong.The setup was an appointment for a full arm wax on a man.The man had everything waxed including hands and knuckles. His arm hair went all the way around his arm from shoulder to wrist; nothing on the palm of the hand.While the hair was not too thick on the upper arm it was thick on the lower arm and especially beginning above…See More

"This has happened to me before... I used a brown bag placed it on top of wax spot and than ironed it... The wax will them be absorbed into the brown bag, leaving nothing on the clothing."
