      REVIEW: MOOM® Organic Hair Removal Kit with Lavender (SPA Formula)

      MOOM® Organic Hair Removal Kit with Lavender

      I was recently given the opportunity in trying out Moom Organic Hair Removal Kit. I was very eager to try it out and did not know of what to expect. I have seen reviews based on their products from Ashley Elizabeth whom I first learnt about their line from. I can honestly say I was drawn to Moom for the fact that their products are organic, chemical free and the strips are reusable. I am very picky as to what products I use on my skin. Without further my experience went a little like this:

      I first read the pamphlet carefully. I did not use the microwave or the stove top to heat the product but, I added extra hot boiling water into a bowl and allowed it to sit to become a honey like texture ( I am not saying this is the way to do it but, it was my preference). This method used kept the product at the right consistence from start to finish. I applied the product to my legs and began waxing away.

      The Moom Organic Hair Removal Kit amazed me in many different ways. Such as:
      1. It was non messy
      2. Left no residue
      3. Did not have no strange smell in other word Chemical free
      4. It did not irritate my skin and bare in mind I have sensitive skin
      5. The hair came out very quickly
      6. The fabric strips was easy to wash

      I highly recommend this product to everyone. Especially if you're willing to give waxing a try for the very first time or have sensitive skin.

      About the Kit:
