How To: Prepare Your Skin For Summer

Summer is officially here—and part of that for me is getting my skin prepared. But I admit I totally dreaded this in the past, due to all of the shaving. Don’t you feel the same? I knew there had to be a better and easier way. This year I decided to try something new.

And I chose to try European Wax Center®. Have you heard of this center before? You are going to love it. European Wax Center® believes that we all deserve beautiful skin and should have the confidence to reveal it. They also believe luxurious waxing should be available to everyone at affordable prices. They had me at affordable luxury!

I usually skip waxing as an option because most of my waxing experiences have been unpleasant, impersonal and most of all, PAINFUL. I found the opposite at European Wax Center® --I refuse to get waxed anywhere else now but here.

Convinced yet? Here are a few more reasons why you need to try European Wax Center®:

· They wax all areas of the face and many areas of the body. I know I’ve been to places where only brows and bikini are offered, so I just loved this.

· They use an exclusive stripless Comfort Wax™, made from natural beeswax, to gently remove the hair for a virtually painless experience and give truly smooth skin.

· Only premium, superior products (see here) are used.

· Treatment of guests is amazing--I felt pampered from the moment I arrived until the experience was over.

· First-time guests can indulge in a complimentary wax.*

You are going to love it just like I do and I can’t wait to hear about your experience! Now before you prepare your skin for summer, I wanted to share an exciting contest with you! Check out  The Summer Goddess Model Search contest, presented by European Wax Center® and Wilhelmina Models:

  1. I usually opt out of waxing as well - my experiences have just not been great and shaving seems far more convenient. Maybe I just need to keep looking around for my ideal waxing place though!

  2. I've never gotten anything besides my eyebrows waxed and that is usually painful enough that I can't imagine doing anything larger but I would definitely love to not have to worry about shaving for awhile!

  3. I am also of the no waxing team, but only because I have never taken the time to try it. I will definitely be checking this place out.

  4. European Wax Center made me a convert - I've always had great experiences there!

  5. We have like 10 of these that have literally popped up everywhere!! I have a coupon I'm excited to give them a try! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. Thanks for the review! I'd love to find a waxing place that doesn't hurt so I'll check them out some time!

  7. I used to have waxing a few years ago, till I don't know what happened that I don't need it anymore - I guess it's like people say, the more waxing, the thinner the hair gets! In my case, I can say I liked the treatments, and so I can understand you felt pampered - that's right, it's that good! I liked the review very much, cause I am a waxing fan (or was!)

  8. Thanks for sharing this company. I will definitely check them out!


  9. I've only ever had my eyebrows waxed. I'll have to check this place out! Thanks for sharing your review!

  10. Waxing is definitely a necessary evil especially in the summer. So glad you found a place that you love! I'll have to check them out :)

  11. Glad you liked them! I went there a year ago and the was they used (it was purple?) broke me out!! :(

  12. I keep wanting to try waxing, but the pain of it has kept me away. I will have to see if there is a location near me!

  13. OMG. I have been thinking about going and might go today after reading this! I leave tomorrow MORNING for my beach vacation and don't want to deal with the hassle of shaving! And I want it to last long! Thanks for the post love!

  14. I've never tried waxing because I have a very low pain tolerance and can barely stand getting my eyebrows plucked or threaded. If this method truly is virtually painless, even for a wimp like me, I would be willing to give it a try!

  15. sounds like a great place to get waxed at.


  16. Agree with the comments above....sounds like a great place to prep the skin for the summer. I used to wax, but now just shave coz I'm lazy:P

  17. Girl, I hear you about waxing! Hate it... but sounds like you found an amazing place!! What a great contest you're offering, too! xx, Karen // Glam Karen

  18. I love European Wax center. So luxurious and the wax doesn't mess with my sensitive skin!

  19. I'm a wax wimp... I cry when I just get my eyebrows done

  20. This place sounds great! I've always been curious about waxing but wonder if it might hurt alot.

  21. A European Wax Center just opened near my house and I've been wanting to try it! I'm terrified of waxing though so we'll see how that goes... :)

  22. I hate waxing! But I know it lasts so much longer. I feel like I always miss spots when I shave, so it's really worth it to just bite the bullet. I love when you notify us of these contests, Elle! You always seem to know the best ones!

  23. I actually have a full package with my local European Wax Center & one of my "now followers" is the head receptionist. Every time I go in there, we talk for like 20-30 minutes before & after my waxing because we have so much to discuss in the beauty world! xx

  24. I love this wax center! I got every 5 weeks!

  25. Other than my eyebrows I've never gotten anything waxed before but I'd love to have my legs and bikini line done just so I don't have to worry about it for a while! Sounds nice!

  26. I usually don't pay much attention to sponsored posts, but THANK YOU for this one! I've been wanting to find a place that specializes in just waxing. I've only ever done it myself, but man is it a task and a half! I was really surprised to find that they have a location nearby. I'm totally going to check them out. Thanks again! :)

  27. I'm all for a more painless waxing experience and I don't even do the bikini area or anything. I have such a low tolerance for pain but this actually sounds feasible for me. Not sure if we have one in Nashville but will check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  28. I used them for an eyebrow wax once, and I was impressed... I really love Bliss for waxing though - they have the most painless wax I have ever found!! I don't get to either place near enough though - I'm the worst at it... then one day I wake up and say, "WHEN DID MY EYEBROWS START LOOKING LIKE THAT?!"

  29. Sounds like an amazing experience. I'd probably consider stuff like this if I actually shaved that often - that sounded bad. What I mean is, I'm fortunate enough to have very little body hair so I only shave my legs once every two weeks or so. :-)

  30. This place sounds nice ! I've never had anything waxed other than my eye brows. I can see being put off by waxing by having an impersonal experience! And the painful ness!

  31. I tried getting my eyebrows done once and they totally misshaped them, so I've gone back to just waxing them myself. I would use a place though for other areas. ;)

  32. I've always been super nervous to try waxing because I have had a bad experience with my eyebrows once before. This place sounds really nice though and I will have to give them a try! :)

  33. I think I've seen this around my area but I stick to shaving myself. I may check it out sometime!

  34. Sounds like an awesome company! Im a big waxer. I wax it all! lol

  35. First week free?! Awesome! I much prefer waxing over plucking.. may need to get in there!!

  36. I have never had a wax before (other than my eyebrows) because I am SO scared to!! Lol does this place really not hurt when getting waxed? If so I definitely need to try it out!!


  37. Ok, booking my appt now!! I've been scared but I think I need to give it a try!

    xo, Christina
