Some are found large round containers in the hair remover cream, strips aisle. You have to follow the instructions. Many make it at home.

A good one is called Meem, comes in peachy / fleshy coloured packaging from Co-op and Car4. This brand has all the versions - the huge type of sticky sticky wax you can spread on with a stick and yank off with a cloth strip, also a roll on type of contraption that was a total fail in my case but my friend loves it!

I prefer the tiny packages (dhs 2.50 each i think) and you just knead it around, push it onto your skin and pull it off and repeat until your fuzz free - I guess this is also the Arab way of waxing too (noticed my relatives use this method)

You can also make some at home – sugar lemon water heated until thoroughly gooey

Salons might have some you could buy, or salon supply stores like the one in Hamid centre.

Excuse my rambling - good luck =D

Can anyone give a bit of advise on how to apply, I have had my legs "sugared" in the past - I assume this is the same thing, a big ball of sticky stuff rolled on and off the legs like wax, but not using any strips, just using the sticky stuff itself.

 

Same principle?  I'd prefer this as I didnt find it as painful and I think got better results.

 

Any advice appreciated
