Ten Second Takeaway

After the regular {read obsolete} wax, and the chocolate wax, it’s banana’s turn to shine: Lakme has recently launched a banana fragranced wax, aimed at making the painful experience of hair removal just that little bit smoother.

A new fragrance at every step

The banana wax ritual begins with a spray of rose lotion on your skin. This followed by, well, the stripping. We felt this particular wax made the entire process speedier, and a slightly less painful one {there were no screams of agony}. The entire time, you can feast your senses on the aroma of fresh bananas. This is replaced with a fresh lemony fragrance {which lingers for hours} once you’re done and massaged with the post-wax serum.

No more dry days

The banana wax is ideal for those with dry skin, as it has moisturising properties and is especially good for winter months when skin is prone to getting scaly. Just make sure you avoid the swimming pool for two-three days afterwards {it may cause reactions}.

#LBBTip: If you’re looking to get your sensitive areas waxed, the banana wax isn’t a great option; opt for their peel-off wax instead.
