Sugaring vs Waxing

Once you try Sugaring, we bet you never go back to waxing. We make our sugaring paste in small batches at our US-based facility.
We use 100% organic ingredients: lemon juice, water, and sugar. You can even eat our sugar paste like a candy.

Why
Sugaring?

Sugaring is a relatively painless, affordable, and long-lasting Brazilian hair removal method. Forget about shaving or regular waxing that causes irritation, ingrown hairs, and razor bumps. Waxing removes live skin cells alongside dead skin cells and unwanted hair, causing unnecessary pain and irritation. You can visibly see the damage from waxing to the skin under a Wood’s lamp. The reason why waxing became so popular is that it requires far less skill. You can be very unskilled and still remove hair because the wax will rip off (or at least break) the hair.

Regular Brazilian Waxing
vs Sugaring

  • Sugaring uses only natural ingredients. The preparation is 100% natural, containing only water and sugar, with no chemicals, fragrances or coloring. It is hypoallergenic, causing no skin irritation. It is so natural that a sweet-toothed person can even eat it! Waxing is made of resins and often toxic chemicals as well. These ingredients are often irritating, if not toxic, to the skin.
  • Sugaring paste is applied at body temperature and will not burn your skin. Hot wax must be heated to a high temperature in order to become liquified, which can cause burning and scarring. 
  • Sugar paste can be cleaned up easily with water. You will never leave a sugaring treatment feeling sticky. Since wax contains resins, chemical solvents are required to remove its residue.

Skin-friendly kind of hair removal

Sugar cannot adhere to live skin cells. This means less discomfort for you and less trauma to your skin. Sugaring does remove dead skin cells – so as the hair is removed, your skin is also getting exfoliated! Wax has been known to remove more than just the hair, since it can adhere directly to live skin cells, which makes waxing more painful and irritating. Wax cannot be applied to an area more than twice at the most.

Sugaring paste is naturally hypoallergenic

Sugaring Paste is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Sugar naturally helps control cross-contamination and bacteria cannot breed in the tub of sugar. Cross-contamination in a waxing room is always a danger, especially since bacteria will breed inside a tub of wax.

I love sugaring, they do a great job, have a great facility, and it’s relatively painless and lasts long! I have sensitive skin and I’m not even red after my appointments! Will definitely be returning.

I went to this location and this may sound strange, but I’m excited to go back!. I had done sugaring before, just not a Brazilian. It was slightly painful since it was my first time and I was extra bushy  but my next session should be smoooooth.

Just moved to Chicago and luckily booked Brittany for my first time. She is very friendly and informative of the whole process. I am 8 months pregnant now so imagine the level of sensitivity she deals with for me and each time she’s so patient. She gives you a mirror to check if everything is up to par also and then will fix if she needs to! Great experience at this location !!

Very conveniently located by my office, so stopped in during my lunch break one day. Very fast service, super clean, and staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Was my first time visiting, and will definitely not be my last.

Found this gem when I was looking for sugaring salons near me. They had a really good combo deal going and I wanted to try it. Booked a sugaring session with Cindy. It’s a beautiful salon with really amazing prices. The waiting room is super clean and spacious, Kaylee, the receptionist was super sweet as well & I was greeted with a new client welcome bag.

First time I got my lashes done and they turned out amazing. Kristen did a great job! Got a lash lift and tint.

It was my first time getting a Brazilian, I’m male. They offered 50% off for first time clients. The person who did mine was really good at making it comfortable for me even though it’s a rather invasive procedure. She has been doing sugaring for over a year now, but has done waxing in the past. I took two ibuprofen before hand and the pain was quite tolerable. Thought it went well and will return when in the area

I have been getting sugared for a long time and I must say that this was one of my best experiences at a sugaring salon. Mattia was/is AMAZING! She’s very thorough with her work and made me feel really comfortable, and stayed professional. I could tell that she really cares about the quality of her work, yet, she is still quick. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!

I got a Brazilian for the first time ever & my Sugarista Mattia was so nice and nonjudgmental!!! I appreciate your service and insight on the after care treatment.

Mattia was wonderfully attentive and made me feel so comfortable- she did a fantastic job. Edit: make sure to ask for the numbing spray if you pay for it, they may forget to put it on you (it should be on you for minimum 5 minutes to take effect). Also the numbing spray has a reputation for not really working , so perhaps just use lidocaine on yourself prior and save some $$$
