Red Door Spa: My First Brow Wax

{Disclaimer: I am a Red Door Spa #GalSquad Ambassador and receive services at no cost.}

This month’s Red Door Spa ambassador service was one that was completely new to me… a brow wax. You can check out all of the Red Door Spa’s waxing services here.

I’m not one of those girls blessed with thick eyebrows, so I’ve never gotten my brows waxed before. Typically, I just pluck a hair or two on an as-needed basis and use a brow pencil to fill in the sparse bits. In anticipation of my brow wax appointment, I hid my tweezers for a few weeks and didn’t allow myself to pluck even one errant hair.

To my surprise, my right eyebrow got a little shaggy but my left one was just as sad and sparse as ever.

I was excited to stop by the Gaithersburg location of the Red Door Spa to meet brow expert, Lucy. I was also a little scared… so I made sure to tell her that I just wanted the scraggly bits dealt with and please, please, please don’t leave me with skinny little sperm eyebrows!

Before we started, Lucy asked if I was using any prescription face products that contained Retin A. Apparently if you are using those types of products, it can thin your skin to such an extent that a brow waxing could actually rip skin off! Then, she cleaned my brows and applied the warm wax. Before I knew it, she ripped the strip off. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but the pain was quite minimal. I did feel a little tender for about 20 minutes afterwards.

After she completed the brow waxing, she smoothed on some oil to remove the wax. She followed the oil with a toner and then rubbed on some aloe to help with the redness. And there was certainly redness!

Luckily, it only lasted about 45 minutes or so. When it was gone, I was left with some pretty fabulous eyebrows!

For my first eyebrow waxing experience it was pretty great. I’m really happy with the fullness and shape of my eyebrows and I think that Lucy did a wonderful job!
