Unsung Hero Alert: IngrownZone Triple Action Post Depilatory Lotion

If you have ever spoken to the team here at Pure Spa Direct, you know we LOVE to tout the wonders of the IngrownZone products. While we often focus our attention on the spot-treatment Cream, I have recently been absolutely LOVING the Triple Action Post Depilatory Lotion!

This is a light lotion that moisturizes without being heavy or greasy, is naturally formulated with active ingredients to reduce the appearance of unsightly ingrown hairs and bumps associated with hair removal, while also slowing hair growth. The natural botanicals help the skin feel refreshed and moisturized after waxing, keeping the freshly waxed skin supple and hydrated.

Not only for use after waxing, but this lotion is also amazing after shaving – it keeps those ashy legs at bay while reducing irritation. As someone who is very sensitive to lotions and hates the heavy, greasy, slimy feel left behind by many, I LOVE the light refreshment this lotion offers!

Use to finish all of your hair removal services, and retail it to your clients for use at home too! Once you try it, you will never want to use another after-wax lotion!

No matter the type of skin, hair, or services you are offering, Starpil‘s line of high-quality wax has the perfect formula for you, your clients, and your business!

Blue Film Wax
These hard wax beans are made with the ultimate pliability, elasticity, and spreadability in mind, making them a world-renowned formula. They work hard at a low application temperature for a relaxed application that9s gentle on the skin. With rapid cooling and the perfect number of polymers, Starpil blue hard wax securely hugs hairs at the root without gripping the skin.

Pink Film Wax
Pink Film Hard Wax Beads is the crème de la crème for working on delicate areas like the face, underarms, or intimate waxing. It reduces redness and irritation by layering skin with a creamy pink film wax formula. Allowing for a thin, low-temperature application that keeps skin safe, you have found yourself an indulgent pink wax for hair removal that eases skin as it works its magic. Starpil pink wax beads melt down quickly to cinch around the finest, tiniest hairs at the root for their complete removal. It spreads and cools evenly, limiting the need to re-apply the wax, but it9s so gentle that even if you had to, the skin wouldn9t be mad at you for it.

Hybrid Black Film Wax
Looking for your hard wax holy grail? No matter the client’s skin, hair, sensitivity, or age – the Starpil Hybrid Black Film Wax caters to them all! Tired of applying multiple strips in one area because your wax isn’t grabbing all the hair? Starpil Hybrid Black Film Hard Wax is your solution! You can expect one strip to fully pull out all hair from the desired area guaranteed. This new formula traps hair like no other as hair grips tightly to the wax making your tug effective. The Black Film Hard Wax is a crystalline formula and the texture feels like it’s both creamy and crystalline making it a hybrid wax. You get the best of both worlds!

Coral Hard Wax
This gentle formula is suitable for all skin types, including hypersensitive. The micro-bead form is ideal for precise measuring. The Mediterranean Coral Calcium Powder in this wax helps unify and improve skin tone while boosting the skin’s luminosity. Its bergamot and satsuma fragrance instills a sense of well-being and comfort.

Starsoft Film Wax
Starsoft is the most luxurious hard wax in the game, but we9ve upped the ante and poured it into microbead technology. Our cult-favorite formula has the same hypoallergenic and calming ingredients but is now available in microbead form! These microbeads contain no pine rosin, perfumes, coloring agents, or preservatives, making it a fabulously clean, supreme wax. Each tiny bead is packed with Starsoft9s desensitizing (yet moisturizing) properties, and anti-aging ingredients like tamanu oil and vitamin E. These relieve redness, pain, and irritation and protect pores from inflammation, hair breakage, and skin lifting. Simultaneously, it softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping the skin retain moisture and long-lasting silky-smooth results (and then some).

Calendula Film Wax
This is an ultra-soothing, creamy calendula wax containing a hygienic blend of calendula and tea tree oil. Together, these proprietary ingredients are known to limit bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, calm redness, and repair skin, leaving it feeling smooth, replenished, and cleansed after waxing. It’s a superior calendula hard wax that’s fabulous for sensitive skin and all hair types.
