Sugaring Vs Waxing: Everything You Need To Know
Everything you need to know about sugaring and waxing hair removal techniques that will help you book your appointment with us.
Why choose sugaring?
Sugaring is a 100% organic hair removal method that uses sugar, lemon, and water to remove hair.
Sugaring is a form of hair removal technique that resembles waxing, but it is gentler on the skin. It’s all-natural as it uses only sugar, lemon, and water. Sugaring hurt less than waxing because it tends to pull less on the skin and thus causing less irritation and redness. A ball of sugar is used to remove the hair that uses your body temperature to melt itself as the hair removal technique is being performed. With the gentle scrubbing action and the antioxidant properties of lemon, your skin feels much smoother and supple after the technique is performed.

Traditional sugaring is done with a sugar ball. This technique is highly effective for sensitive areas.

First time with sugaring/waxing, and I couldn't have selected a better place to go. What initially attracted me was the much fairer prices than most places I've searched in Mississauga/Etobicoke. However what was even better was that my experience lived up to those of others in the reviews. She was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to throughout the process. I'll be back, thanks again!
WAXOXO is literally THE BEST! I joke that every time I see Reena.. it’s like a therapy session for me! Not only is she incredible at what she does, she makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. Team WAXOXO all the way! ❤️
Firstly Reena is amazing.
It was my first ever time getting sugared and I got a Brazilian wax (I have only gotten waxed before). I wanted to wait a week before writing this review to see the results and the hair growth.
AND THEY ARE AMAZING. No new ingrowns, still super smooth, and minimal hair is growing.
Reena is very professional and kind. It was not at all awkward getting waxed. We had a pleasant conversation and the time just flew by.
I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this place for sugaring. It is so much better than the traditional waxing
I had my Brazilian sugaring done by Reena when it was at a different location and a different name, and let me tell you in 15 years of Brazilians, it was the most painless experience ever - I didn't even feel a thing! Granted I know my experience will not be everyone's, but she's really good. I recently went to visit Waxoxo since it opened - it's a beautiful space! I had a different aesthetician named Liz who was very professional, lovely to chat to, and her service was excellent. I will return when I need to get my Brazilian done again. Worth all the money to sugar!!
This place gets 10 stars. Waxoxo is the one and only place I will get my sugaring done. Reena is so professional and sweet. She makes you feel so comfortable and talks to you throughout the process, giving tips and advice that other places won't give you. Also the place is super clean and is a very calm environment. My hair grows back very very fine and in some spots, hair has even completely vanished. I no longer need to shave, sugaring is worth it. I wont be going anywhere else.
I chose Reena’s salon based on the reviews, and I was beyond impressed with her waxing skills and service. Reena is very professional, hospitable and keeps a clean and calm environment. The service was very quick. I had a bad experience at a salon prior and she changed my whole outlook on sugar waxing and made me feel super comfortable. I have zero pain or irritation after leaving my appointment with Reena and my skin is softer than ever. I look forward to being a loyal customer for her sugar waxing services! I highly recommend her especially if you have sensitive skin. Well worth the drive for me. Thanks Reena!
Love love love this place!! The staff is the friendliest while being super professional, especially Reena. I got sugaring and the Pure Bliss organic facial and I had such a great experience, definitely coming back again! Also I really liked the decor and vibe of this place, made me feel really welcome 🌟
