    Sugar Honey Hair Remover
    submitted by Asiyah

    If you have a question or comment about this recipe, please post it in the Comments Section below!

    I have used Sugar Honey Hair Remover on my legs, arms upper lip, eyebrows and underarms and it has never stripped my skin. It does turn the affected skin red for a little while afterward, but it removes hair for at least six weeks and beats more expensive salon alternatives. Discard any unused portion after using.

    Yield: Approx. 1 cup
    Prep Time: 10-15 mins
    Price Category: 1
    Difficulty Level: 1
    Shelf Life: None, keep refrigerated

    juice from half of a lemon
    2 tablespoons honey
    1 cup white sugar
    a number of cotton strips (about 1/2 inch thick and 3-4 inches long)
    1 pop sickle stick

    Blending Procedure:

    1. Add all the ingrediants to a saucepan and heat until the sugar is dissolved and turns to liquid.

    2. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Touch it with your finger before using to make sure it's not too hot to touch. If it is, wait a few more minutes before using.

    3. When the mixture has cooled so you can touch it, but it's still warm, use the pop sickle stick to apply it to your selected area. Smear it in the direction of the hair growth.

    4. Put a cotton strip over the area where the mixture was applied and rub it until you feel it warm as the sugar mixture sticks to the hair.

    5. To remove the cotton (and the hair), gently pull the cotton agaginst the direction of hair growth (opposite from the direction you applied the product). It will not hurt if you have thin hair, but if the hair growth is thick, it will hurt.

    6. Repeat the steps on other parts of the skin where you want hair removed, using new strips for each area.

    7. Test this product on a small patch of hair before using on larger patches. If any adverse reaction occurs, do not use it again. Hair removal is sometimes painful, even when done in a salon by a professional so if you have any doubts about how to do this yourself, skip to another recipe. Also, do not use on sensitive, damaged or broken skin. Do not use on children or babies.

    "I used it...in very sensitive areas. It works great. Be super careful that it has cooled off enough to put on your skin. I don't know if it's because of this recipe, but it hurt mush less than at the salon!"

    "I made this recipe yesterday and was not pleased. It worked on the very fine hair only, like the upper lip. If you have any thicker hair it does not work. Also I made the mistake of making a full recipe. It makes quite abit so I suggest do 1/4 the recipe to start."
