As a Disney fan, the Beast is someone who I did not aspire to look like. Just like any other evolved human being, I am trying my very best not to parade my Neanderthal roots. Hair removal products come in a dime a dozen and I’m going to talk about something that I’ve tried which can potentially work for you.
There are a lot of ways to remove body hair. The list includes plucking, waxing, shaving, laser, and etc.
As busy modern Filipina women, we all have different types of approach towards hair removal depending on our schedule and budget.
If waxing is a good option for you, keep reading.
The Hair Removal Product
Because I don’t have perfect underarms and I didn’t want it to get darker anymore, I’ve sworn off shaving.
I am fundamentally lazy and simply did not have the time to individually tweeze my pit hairs. Ang sipag mo teh kung ginagawa mo ito; a possible new career for you? Charot.
Waxing is the only option to remove my underarm hair and I didn’t like the hassle of heating up wax.
Lazy, lazier, laziest award goes to me!
Roaming the drugstore is my hobby and as I was casually looking at the hair removal product aisle, there it was…
Glam Works Hair Removal Cold Wax Kit
A green box with a beautiful hairless woman on the cover hypnotized me to come closer.
The box says…
For face, UNDERARMS, arms, chest, back, bikini line, and legs.
It was only 100+ PHP which made it easy to purchase.
Inside the box is a plastic spatula applicator, 50g of cold wax and 5 pcs of waxing paper that’s about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide each.
- Clean skin and pat dry.
- Apply cold wax to skin with the spatula, cover the hair (to be removed) completely.
- Cover wax with the waxing paper.
- Firmly rub the strip (wax paper) in the same direction of your hair growth for 10 seconds.
- Stretch skin taut and hold firmly. Pull the strips quickly back on itself against the direction of hair growth and keep the strip as close to the skin as possible.
I followed the directions correctly and cut the waxing paper to the size of the hairy patch of my underarm area and it did nothing for me.
The product says that it can be used for underarms but what they should be really claiming is that it will work for neglected and hairy underarms.
I don’t have the luxury of growing my pit hairs to be easily removed by cold wax because I date men on a regular basis lol.
What is it best used for?
The Glam Works Hair Removal Cold Wax kit hair removal product is best used for longer body hair strands like on the legs, chest (girl you need estrogen and anti-androgen if you grow hair here), bikini area or arms.
It doesn’t adhere to short body hairs.
I’m going to show you how it worked on my jungle-like forearms (yes mamshy balbon ako).

It’s pretty evident that Glam Works Hair Removal Cold Wax Kit works in removing body hair, just not on the underarms.
If you like growing your underarm hair to almost an inch, I have no judgment. This product will work well for you.
With its price point and effects, I think it’s a good hair removal product in the Philippines.
