Lycon Wax at Sisters Beauty Lounge
|The treatment room at Sisters Beauty Lounge Mall of the Emirates|
Lycon Precision Wax was developed in Australia by beauty therapist Lydia Jordane, who created her very first wax on her kitchen stove as a teenager! The wax is renowned for it's special blend of natural resins, essential oils and beeswax.
For me, the most impressive aspect is the process. It isn't a case of just slapping on the wax and ripping it off. Lycon has a range of pre and post wax products that really make a big difference. I was especially impressed by the Pre-waxing Oil, which sticks to the skin making sure that the wax only grabs the hair. I think that makes a huuge difference!

I got my legs waxed first using the strip wax and while it wasn't 100% pain-free (on a scale of 1-10, I'd say it was about a 2) it was definitely the smoothest wax I've ever had. I was worried that the hairs on my legs weren't long enough to wax, but the wax strip picked up every single little hair! I was definitely impressed.
But...I was even more impressed by the hot wax that was used on my underarms. It only took a couple of minutes for each underarm and I honestly felt NOTHING. I was like 'wait..was that it?' I was converted right then and there!
Lycon Precision wax is available at salons across the city, including Sisters Beauty Lounge. They will also be at BeautyWorld Me, which is the largest international trade fair for beauty products in the region. So pop down if you'd like to meet the lovely Lycon ladies! They will also be hosting a workshop after the exhibition and are offering free training and a 5% discount during the exhibition!
