Discover the products essential for pre- and postintimate waxing care for your clients

1 Lycon

The PrePost Lotion Kit from waxing brand Lycon has been formulated to effectively cleanse, pre-soothe, protect and nurture the skin before, during and after all waxing treatments. The five products included in the kit are Lycotane Skin Cleanser, Pre-waxing Oil, Tea Tree Soothe, Tea Tree Perfect, and Wax Solvent, included to help the kit to provide everything needed for pre- and post-wax care.

Trade: £25 020 7590 9300

2 Hive

Soothing Oil has had a dualaction update and can now be used both pre and post wax. Used ahead of waxing, the light oil forms a fine barrier between the skin and the wax being applied, preventing wax from gripping skin. Post-wax, the oil cools and conditions, locking in skin’s natural moisture with guaiazulene to reduce inflammation. 

Trade: £4.75 0845 450 4802

3 Just Wax

The Protect and Calm two-in-one from Just Wax can be used instead of an oil on pre-cleansed skin to protect areas of extreme dryness or sensitivity before waxing, then used after waxing to calm, cool and moisturise the skin. The product is formulated with marshmallow root for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Trade: £5.25 020 8573 9907

4 Ashmira Botanica

Ashmira Botanica has several products available for pre- and post-waxing care, including the Comfort Balm, which quickly soothes and protects after waxing, reducing redness and preventing ingrown hairs from forming.

Trade: £12.50 01823 429 588

5 Outback Organics

Bush Balm reduces redness and calms skin after hair removal. Formulated with aloe vera, allantoin, and frankincense extract to soothe, plus shea butter and macadamia oil to nourish, the vegan balm can also be used between appointments to help prevent ingrown hairs and hydrate skin.

Trade: from 35p for single-use sachets to £25 for 957ml 01823 663322

6 Aqua Natural

Fine Talc and Soothing Mist combine for a perfect pre- and post-sugar waxing pairing. The pharmaceutical-grade Fine Talc, free from titaniumdioxide and fragrance, absorbs moisture and frees hairs from the skin to prep for wax, while the Soothing Mist, infused with bergamot oil and witch hazel, helps soothe skin while removing wax residue.

Trade: £4 each 01933 441818

7 Waxperts

Waxperts’ Wonder Pads are a handy retail edition to your salon.

9 Wax:One
