A few months ago, I was invited to an intimate blogger event launching a new wax and laser studio called Wink.
Born out of the idea that hair removal should be effective yet affordable, Wink owner, Holly Chang, conveniently set up her first shop in the bustling Fort district, High Street specifically. Laser is Wink’s specialty but they also offer waxing services for as low as P250 (upper lip) to P680 (brazilian). Yes, folks, that’s almost half the price of the high-end waxing place I normally go to.
Wink’s interiors are very whimsical, they remind me of Holly’s bubbly personality.
Another thing you’ll notice immediately is that Wink is very clean. Holly is a neat freak, apparently.
During the event, I decided to try their underarm and brazilian wax. Wink uses a special kind of wax that’s imported from the US, it’s called Berodin. It’s scentless and a little bit translucent.
If you notice, there is a long roll of sturdy tissue-like paper on the bed. Wink takes cleanliness seriously and this paper is discarded after each and every customer. They don’t believe in using towels because that’s just icky.
My waxer for the day interviewed me first and asked about my waxing habits and skin sensitivities. During the process itself, she was very skilled and easily removed hair in a few pulls. Surprisingly, the pulling part didn’t hurt one bit! Of course there was a little bit of wincing during the brazilian (sorry, TMI!) but it was nothing compared to other waxing places where I’d really need a stress toy to divert my thoughts.
Overall, I am really happy with the service and would definitely come back and have my regular waxing sessions here. The price is definitely affordable for both students and professionals. In the photo below, Alex and I pose for the camera after our sessions. We were both happy campers 🙂
