Smooth for summer: Hair removal essentials from Joy/Glee

With the weather getting warmer, it’s time to start showing more skin.

Okay, so when it comes to body hair, mine grows pretty fast.  I have to trim my eyebrows at least once a week, I have to pluck or shave my upper lip and chin weekly, and shave my legs and armpits once a week as well.

Although I usually reach for my razor for most hair removal, but since hair tends to grow faster in the warmer months I like to use wax to remove it all.

Joy Glee Wax and Hair Removal Creams

I used to use wax strips way back when for my upper lip, but it’s been a few years since I’ve used them last. About a month back I received a toolkit of hair removal products from Joy/Glee, which you can find here at Walmart Canada.  They have a whole slew of items targeted for hair removal, including razors, shave gel, hair removal creams and wax.

I’ve tried a few of their wax strips, including the bikini ones and the facial one and really loved them. The hair removal items I have used in the past were similar but you had to heat them up by rubbing them between your palms.  These you just pull apart and they are good to go.

The Glee wax strips (C$11.97) come in three different kinds. There are some for your face, your body, and your bikini area. These strips remove hair and last for up to 28 days.   Best part is you don’t have to rub them at all; the wax is sticky and does a really good job of removing hair.  Each pack also comes with the oil pads to remove any residual wax.

Glee Wax Strips Glee Hair Removal Cream

Glee also offers up hair removal creams (C$11.97) as well, which are designed to be a more painless way of removing hair.  I tried out the facial one and to be honest, it didn’t nothing for me and then it made me break out.  I’ve tried similar products in the past and they didn’t work for me either, so I’m not sure that kind of hair this is designed for.

As for Joy, that is the brand for the razors (C$11.97).  They have four different colours (pink, teal, purple, yellow) to choose from and you can buy the refillable blades as well.  These razors have five blades on them and have a protective lubrastrip and a non-slip grip.  Pair them with one of the Glee shave gels for the best shaving experience.

Joy Razors

There are so many hair removal products on the market now but I really like this brand as first off, it has really cool and hip branding, and second of all, it’s pretty affordable. Like I said, I didn’t like the creams but loved the wax and would definitely purchase it when I run out (it’s been a lifesaver this summer, especially with COVID and a lot of places still closed).
