Keep it Clean with Starpil’s Newest Wax – Calendula Film Wax

A successful wax comes from keeping things as clean and calm as possible to limit acne breakouts or ingrown hairs; that’s why Starpil has developed Calendula Film Hard Wax Tablets.

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.

The benefits of calendula wax make it a go-to for full-service waxing because it gently but firmly removes hair from the root from even the most delicate surfaces. With rapid cooling and workable pliability, Starpil’s Calendula wax will be your MVP because it can spread far and wide without tearing or cracking.

This wax will leave your clients smooth, hairless, and without inflammation or ingrown hairs, which means they will be happier with your wax than other waxes!

Starpil has also developed a line of Calendula Pre- and Post-Wax products to complement this wax and elevate your services from good to unbeatable! Check them out below:

Tearing Down Sterotypes – One Wax at a Time

As you may have noticed, we Pure Spa Direct team members are a little obsessed with waxing. We love the trends, we love trying new wax, and we love reading about it all!

Skin Inc magazine published a fantastic article regarding the shifting trends in waxing recently. In the article “The Changing World of Hair Removal,” Cali VanAelst, national trainer for Cirepil by Perron Rigot, explores how waxing is breaking stereotypes – being beauty stereotypes, gender stereotypes, and more.

The beauty industry is one of acceptance and empowerment, and no one is in a better place to promote body positivity than a waxer! Just because your client is there to get a Brazilian doesn’t mean she also wants an underarm wax…..but maybe she does! Figuring out how to offer add-on services in an understanding manner is going to be key, and those in the industry who nail that will see much success.


Cirepil, one of America’s best-selling wax brands, is taking a very open and broad approach. This year, they have introduced their new Tattoo wax – wax designed not only to remove hair but also to refresh tattoos!

The beauty of our industry is the beauty of all people, and we love brands who are supportive!

What stereotypes have you seen being broken recently?

Hooked on Honey!

I’ve learned when it comes to wax preference, everybody is different. Honey Wax has an extra-strength formula that produces a superior grip, to leave the skin feeling silky-smooth.

For large or full body services, try the Honey Comb Roll On Cartridge!

Containing high quality, all-natural ingredients, Honey Comb Roll-On Wax can be spread very thinly. Roll-on waxing means no drips, no mistakes, no burns. Wax applies at just the right temperature and thickness for perfect results every time. This is ideal for speed waxing!

If you prefer soft wax, try Satin Smooth Honey Wax.

The combination of vitamin E and honey creates an all-purpose depilatory wax that9s good for skin and forms a natural buffer between wax and skin.

Produced from natural pine resin and real beeswax, Honey Wax spreads thinly over large areas of the body for exceptionally easy application. And that natural buffer makes it equally easy to remove. We recommend it for use on all parts of the body and any type of hair. Your clients will love it!

And finally, my personal favorite is Miss Cire Oh Honey! Hard Wax Tablets.

This honey wax is best used to get rid of leg hair, back hair, arm hair, and can also be used on the more sensitive areas on the body. This is a natural hair removal wax that will leave your skin feeling smooth and gentle.

It has an excellent grip on the hair even the shortest ones. It is applied thickly in even layers, has great elasticity, and does not crack at the time of removal.
