Limited Edition Cucumber Wax at Ministry of Waxing

Before I set off on my Sardinian beach holiday at the beginning of the month, I made my way to Ministry of Waxing's Islington salon to meet the new wax on the block- cucumber!

After my previous Ministry of Waxing experience, I knew to expect a great level of customer service and professionalism and I certainly wasn't left disappointed this second time around.

I was there for a pre-holiday high bikini wax using the new cucumber wax which has been designed with sensitivity in mind, so perfect when it comes to your nether regions. A hard wax, the cucumber formula is enriched with calming and soothing aloe vera and chamomile extracts for maximum (possible) comfort. The real beauty of the cucumber wax is that it's a hard wax with a low melting point, meaning it doesn't get too hot and is therefore as gentle as possible on your lady (or man) parts.

This time round, I opted for the high bikini wax. What is a high bikini wax? It's essentially a more hardcore version of the classic bikini wax, with the therapist removing a little more hair from the top, sides and underneath. Tidy.

My therapist on the day was not only absolutely lovely, but she was personable, knowledgable and clearly loved her job, which is always comforting! As with my previous wax when I went all out and had a Brazilian, this experience was much the same, if not somewhat less painful, which I'm going to put down to the cucumber wax combined with the skill of the therapist. I didn't even need to use the little squeezy toy she gave me for emergencies! 
In around 15 minutes I was waxed to perfection and ready to don my bikini bottoms the very next morning with no redness or irritation in sight. I was genuinely so pleased to be able to enjoy a week on the beach without once worrying about red, bumpy shaving rash or worse- stray pubes breaching my bikinis. To be completely honest, it was liberating to not need to worry about shaving so if you're escaping the Autumn and heading abroad anytime soon I would really recommend a cucumber bikini wax at Ministry of Waxing before you go! That said, it's a great option if you just want to feel a little tidier and try your hand at ditching the razor in favour of a smooth, long lasting result. As a side note, I had my treatment on September 7th and there's still no sign of any hair sprouting. Rejoice. 

If you're keen to give waxing a go, you're in safe hands with Ministry of Waxing. They have salons around London but the Islington branch is located at 271 Upper Street N1 2UQ and is a five minute stroll from Highbury and Islington station, though is easily reached from Angel tube if the Northern Line is most convenient.

This treatment was complimentary but I am under no obligation to write a review.
