I gave my wax virginity to BUBBLE GUM WAX, and i have no regrets!





Introducing, Bubble Gum Wax, where i would say that its the best place to be waxed, word!

Sorry for the OBSCENE post title up there, but yes, I have to admit that I'm a wax virgin, till today. Today was the day that i had my first go on waxing. GOSH, the amount of intense that i had to go through today. And to make it worst, it wasn't any ordinary leg, nor armpit waxing, but it was my first brazilian wax treatment too!

They also have their own products you can try out. 
As it was a bloggers event, 20 of us were i invited to their official launching of their 2nd branch located in Damansara, where as the 1st branch is currently located at Sri Hartamas in Kuala Lumpur. I was so excited about checking out Bubblegum wax to be honest as i heard a lot about Bubble Gum Wax, even the name of the shop is so hip and fresh.

So, I'm here basically to write about my FIRST experience on Brazilian Waxing. Yes, i know, its a shh topic, but I'm sure some of you might want to know what happens down there once you're getting a brazilian wax for the first time.

A touch of modern + raw architecture. 
So, when i walked into the store, it had this very natural raw feeling to it. Coming from an architecture background, i took the interior as very raw, a.k.a unleashing the inner beauty in you. HAHA. ok, I'm not sure what I'm talking about. but yes, normal buildings would have finishes, but this was slightly different. its like a naked interior, but it still looks pretty!

As you can see in the photo above, yep, those are literally raw bricks, and raw concrete. It was definitely pose worthy. Looks like a perfect place for a photoshoot too after you get your waxing done. teehee. So, the procedure was that you will be seated down until a consultant comes out and calls your name. Well, i didn't have to wait that long till they called my name, but it could be cause i was nervous.

Private rooms
Once you're name is called, they'll bring you to a room that looks like this. In my case, i was getting a Brazilian Wax done. and the instruction was to take off the bottom part of my clothes and get myself up on their bed and cover it with a towel. How i was feeling? Well, knowing that i was bottomless, with just a towel on, it was nerve recking. Then the consultant kindly asked if i was ready, and i said yes. So she came in and greeted me really nicely.

At first, it felt pretty awkward once she took the towel off me to see if its the right length to be waxed. But unfortunately it was slightly on the short side. My consultant suggested that it would be better if i did it in another 2 weeks, but she also gave me the option if i just wanted to proceed with it anyway, and i said might as well, since I'm already here.

The experience during the whole process wasn't as awkward as i though it would be, knowing theres someone else looking at my privates up close. *shy moment*  But ya, it wasn't. Well, she was really professional in handling the whole awkward situation by starting a conversation. Explaining about how to properly take care of my privates and explaining the difference between hard wax and soft wax. The wax they used is from Spain, and i think it didn't hurt as much as i thought it would.

She was my consultant for the day, meet Wendy.
It didn't take long, in my case, it took us less than 30 minutes to get every thing off and it was exhilarating to know that I'm hairless & flawless. Not that anyone cares. haha. but it felt really clean and smooth, period. The highlight of the whole procedure was that after everything was done and all plucked off, they applied this cream around the waxed area to make sure your skin doesn't dries off and irritates the skin. It has this minty cool feeling, and its similar to the feeling of a minty fresh breath after brushing your teeth, except well, it was at another part of your body. Did i mention that the cream is by their own company? How cool is that!

Of course, they is always promotions!
If you're interested to get your 'first time' done, i would really recommend you to go to Bubblegum Wax! And here's a major plus, if its your first time getting your waxing done at Bubble Gum Wax, you'll get a special promotion of RM29 for a Brazilian Wax! How cool is that? Cause as far as i know, Brazilian waxing can be really pricey. Did i also mention that they do waxing for men too? Hint to the boys who's reading this *wink

Opening hours

Their opening hours would be from Tuesday to Sunday. Where on weekdays they open from 11am till 8pm or on weekends from 11am till 6pm. Since they get the job done really fast, i might just drop by during lunch and get my waxing done ;)

Some yummy treats they prepared for us :)
These were my favs, taste really good. But it felt weird eating boobs and butts that tasted like chocolate chip cookies.

Who doesn't love candy bars?!
They were also really kind by welcoming us with some treats! It was yums and it looks too good to be eaten. Especially the cookies decorated like there wearing underwear. hehe
