I was introduced to Strip by a friend who's had great experience with Brazilian waxing at their SM Megamall branch. She mentioned that they used hot wax and it was less painful as compared to using cold wax (like Laybare does).

So I decided to give it a shot. Little did I know that their services were really expensive! Since I already booked a slot and was already there, I said to myself, "Might as well."

The waxing rooms are really clean and spacious. They have a cabinet of the supplies with space for you to place your bags and clothes in line of sight. The towels lining the bed were of good quality as well – they were pretty thick! They also have an extra disposable lining on the towel to go underneath your buttocks.

They also have different flavored wax! Yes!! Flavored!! 128514 This really piqued my interest so I asked them why they had different waxes.

Strawberry is used for "virgin" hairs. For first timers probably.
Lemon is used for fine hairs.
Chocolate is used for thick and coarse hairs.

The wax are kept in a container that is plugged in to keep it warm. They use a small wooden stick like a popsicle stick to scoop out enough wax and spread it. Once they use it, they don't reuse those to be dipped back into the wax. No double dipping. Haha! 128077🏼

The wax is left on the area for a few seconds until it hardens. Like how chocolate from a chocolate fountain hardens when it's left on top of ice cream! 128514 After it's hard enough, the technician will start to peel it off and voila!! Hair gone!! And repeat until it's all gone.

To be honest, it is way less painful using hot wax compared to cold wax. With cold wax it feels like your skin is being pulled twice and that adds to the pain.

Overall, I really loved the service here as well as the facilities and products! Although it is on the pricey side, the experience and the end result is more or less worth the price. They really take good care of their customers.

After the service, since it was my first visit to Strip, they gave me a after-wax care kit which had 3 different creams to help soothe the area after the wax and to prevent any ingrown hairs. I forgot what the other one did. 128517 At the back of this kit, it's said, if you enjoyed any of the products in the kit, bring it back on your next visit to get 20% off those products. 128077🏼

When they say top notch service, strip definitely takes the cake! If not for the steep pricepoint for their services, I would definitely have all my waxing needs done here. (Disclaimed for male readers, girl talk coming your way) haha!

The picture I attached, are actually individual packs used for every customer. This assures you that the things being used on you are used on you alone. Packaging was too witty I just had to take a picture!

It was actually my first time to try strip as I only trust wink when it comes to brazilian waxing. When it comes to hygiene these two places really prioritize such. No double dipping, for both with wink offering wax strips on the bed versus strip and placing new towels for each customer.

The wax they used was something else. Strawberry!!! 127827 imagine your hooha getting pampered with strawberry wax! I dont know if it was a psychological issue that I was paying 1600 for the service but compared to wink, waxing here was a bit more tolerable and quicker.

Strip definitely upped my waxing standards!

Side note: Right now they're offering 50% off on IPL and sweatx services for the month of May!

After a slew of failed and painful waxing sessions with other, inferior "tabi tabi" salons, I gave up and forked over the thousands required to be Strip's customer. It is worth it. Their technique, efficiency and CLEANLINESS is perfect. While waxing will never be entirely pain-free, Strip will make sure that it is as painless as humanly possible.

Pro Tip: If you can, always buy a package. It comes out to cheaper per session. Just make sure the validity is long (mine's 2yrs valid!) or that you can share the sessions with a friend or family member. The promos and package change often so make sure to ask what they have going on.

Minus 1 star: walked in on a monday night for a session and they wouldn't accommodate me because they were supposedly fully booked.. But there were 3 therapists just texting on their phones. Not cool.

The megamall one is less crowded. Go there.

Had an appointment for my service but to my disappointment they gave my slot away to another client. They should have at least confirmed with me that they will be giving away my spot. I am so disappointed with this establishment.

Delayed review: I've waxed and thread ever since puberty struck but have never ever tried Brazilian until I absolutely must have (ie: in preparation for me popping out my mini-me babe!) so last month I decided to get it over and done with. Note that i have very low threshold when it comes to pain and pregnancy will make my skin and pain nerves even more sensitive (if that's even possible! Lol) what a brave thing to do, right?! :D
So as i was mustering courage and gritting my teeth in anticipation of the pain, my Striperella took the first striiiip and voila, no super pain or discomfort, just tolerable sting. I was surprised and happy that this Brazilian thing is something I can do on a regular basis pala, just like grooming my brows!
Im all for Strip putting utmost importance on hygiene: gloves on the hands, no double-dipping, etc. As the previous waxing salon i frequent (where i have a VIP card!) doesn't really put on gloves when doing their work. Maybe that's why i hold off getting their Brazilian and even Bikini services. Well you certainly get what you pay for. I just hope Strip will introduce a loyalty card program in the future as well. Even with higher price tag than what im used to, i can say, I am a convert!

This entry is probably different from all my other food entries. But I just wanted to share with you all how much I love the funky and fun ambiance Strip Manila has. I've visited this place twice and I always left spending my money on something really worth it. Smooth service,friendly accomodating staff and now being their first contestant winner I get to spend a day getting waxed for free! 9786️ I can't wait to go back and have a memorable waxing experience. Drop by their branches near you and dont be furry this Holiday season 128156

I used to go here when my therapist, Christina, used to be assigned here. It's actually more convenient for me but I am loyal to my therapist 9786️ Hassle free that way plus I get the service I want everytime!

Love the location and the interior of this Strip branch!

Regular customer of this store :D When you enter the room, you will automatically see the fresh towels and sheets. :) I like the cleanliness of the room plus there's a cubicle where you could place your things and clothes. The service is always good!! :D They work fast and make it less painful. :) Maybe I just have high pain tolerance like what the technician said haha! I also like the thoroughness of their service :) Maybe the one thing I could complain is the hot wax hahaha but I think it's normal :))) Availed the 5k promo to make it a little bit cheaper per session :)

Fast service. Wasn't completely painless.... but bearable. The technician at first was reminding me before she pulls but during the middle part until the end she stop warning me so I wasn't ready.... But all in all she did a good job.

My long over due visit in the strip! I didn't have any appointment, lucky me they were able to squeeze me in!

The lady at the reception area assigned me to one of the nicest and most efficient technician I've encountered. Yay! It didn't hurt at all! 128077

Of course the place is well kept and clean! I'd definitely keep on coming back for my regular strip here 128516 I am a bonafide STRIPPERELLA! 128536

Oh and the photo shows my Looloo review posted in the waiting area of Strip and Browhaus hihi. Kilig! 9786

I never understood people who say Brazilian waxes don't hurt. It's the same as people who say tattoos are painless. Lies. All lies.

I've tried several waxing salons who use either hot or cold wax and they all claim to offer the least painful waxing experience. Another lie!

The only thing a waxing salon can do to make it "less painful" is to do it as fast as you can please just hurry up oh lawwwwwd why am I doing this what have I done to deserve this is it done??? That's what happens at Strip! It'll still be the full-blown 10 out of 10 pain factor, but you would suffer for only 15 minutes!

Trust me. I've suffered at other places for up to an hour. I tried going to cheaper places, but found that they weren't as efficient or (gasp!) as clean. In instances like this, efficiency and sanitation are of primary importance. I understand everyone has their own preferences. Mine are for Strip.

It's that time of the month again. Lol. After my first (and last) Brazilian in lay bare, I had to go back to my trusted Strip!!!

I always enjoy visiting the Greenbelt branch. More fun interior PLUS the fact that it also is a one stop shop, since it holds Browhaus in there too! Yay!

So while waiting for my turn, look what I saw (in photo) Together with bloggers experiences and articles was my Looloo review! 128525 Hihi. I got tingles inside when I saw it! Kilig!

Anyhow, as expected my experience here was pleasant. My waxnician was awesome and gentle 128077

So there. I will NEVER go try cold wax ever again. I am a bonafide STRIPERELLA 128139

I was telling my Atty. Amor BFF that eversince I read that waxing right before/after your period isn't the best time, (because we're super sensitive during those times, so it'll hurt more) I started waxing a week after. And I told her, I didn't mind the pain THEN, but after a week, it is just PAINLESS. I could just sleep and the tech could wake me up.

But I was here, a week+ after, and the experience wasn't painless at all. :( Yea, I liked the fancy shmancy smell of the wax, and the feel it gives right after it's placed, but it ends there. I thought I would be awed by their waxing technique, but WHAT WAS I THINKING?? For P1200, it's too much. :( I've found places not as fancy but does the job as well at half the price. So...first and maybe, last.

I only go to one place for you know what. Just Strip. Nowhere else. Not gonna lay bare anywhere else. No can do. For me, there are just 2 waxing institutions. Strip and 'the others'.

All off brazillian will cost you 1200 per session. Yes, much expensive than usual but worth it indeed. If you had gone to other waxing salons and had not tried Strip, then better try, see for yourself and experience all the difference!

Almost pain free!! For real!
Quick. 15 minutes.
Hygienic. NO DOUBLE DIPPING.
Fresh towels. All the time. NO stains.
Free wipes.
Zap to the root.
Best best re-growth. Not like "the others".

My favorite therapist is Narlie from Greenbelt 5 branch 128077128077

P.S.
A lot of high profile celebs and models are regulars.

They get the job done but I guess I'm just not this place's target market, as much as I wanted to be, being in the sane location ad my eyebrow place. The fancy flavored waxes gave me folliculitis (yes I'm that delicate). Plus the services are pretty pricey for something so routine to me. I mean if you're into chocolate wax, heart-shaped or a blinged out landing strip, this is your kinda waxing salon. I'm pretty straightforward though plus my skin is just so sensitive!

The IPL machine at Serendra was under maintenance so I had to go all the way to Makati for my last IPL session. Hassle.

When I got there, I was surprised to see that it shared the same space as Browhaus. I guess it makes sense since they're owned by the same company, and since they're both specializing in hair removal. 128516

The facilities of this Strip branch are similar to that of Serendra; the only difference I could see was the high ceiling. But in terms of design, and their meticulousness to anything about hair removal, they're both similar. 128522

Good service, great facilities, what's not to love? 128077
