Are you getting tired of shaving? I have tried waxing in the past but I never found one I was satisfied with so when the folks at Completely Bare contacted me, I was interested in trying their products out. Removing hair can be an inconvenience which is why there are so many methods now for doing the job (shaving, waxing, tweezing, threading, laser, creams, etc.). What I like about waxing is that it lasts longer than shaving and pulls the hair right from the root. Feel free to share what method you prefer!
COMPLETELY BARE HYPOALLERGENIC WAX STRIPS - My first impression was, 'wow, it comes with a lot of wax strips'. The kit contains 12 body strips, 18 bikini/underarm strips, and 12 face strips. The strips actually come as double strips so when you pull them apart, it counts as two strips. They are very simple and quick to use! It only takes about 30 seconds of rubbing the strip between your hands before applying it onto the skin. The first time I tried it was on my underarms and it did remove some hair but not a lot. I tried going over the area a few times but it did not do much. Although I believe the most you can go over an area with the same strip is only twice so my further attempts were useless. The underarm and bikini are difficult areas because the skin is not as taut compared to other areas of the body and the hair may be thicker. This may require a stronger wax or multiple sessions over the same area. When I used the facial and body strips, they worked great! Almost all the hair was removed and I just tweezed any remaining hairs. What I loved the moved about this product is that it comes with towelettes in order to clean any residue left from the wax. The towelettes are so convenient and efficient, which quickens the process of waxing.
Overall Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3 out of 5 stars)
BODY MOISTURIZER HAIR INHIBITOR (C/O) - I was very interested in trying this hair inhibitor because if you can not get rid of the hair, why not slow it down? I have only used this product for about two weeks, but I have noticed that the areas I used this product on is slowing the growth of hair and making the areas softer. I am not sure whether it is changing the density but I feel like I have not used the product enough yet. Although I do think that if this product is used religious (product says it can be used twice a day), there will be greater results. The product has a pleasant smell and I believe it can replace body lotion if this is used every day. I also think this product may be used no matter if one is waxing or shaving. I plan to continue using the product to further observe the results and will definitely make an update if there are changes!

Hope you are all doing well! I am back with another review but today it is on an electronic device. Although I focus on style and travel, I like to share reviews on electronics because our technology is always advancing and my blog would not be in existence without this technology. These are the type of products that help me behind the scenes. So when I share these reviews, I give an honest rating in order to help you decide on a product you are interested in.
1BYONE 4-PORT USB HUB (C/O) - This 4-port USB aluminum hub by 1Byone is sleek and lightweight, which is perfect for traveling. You can plug this into your laptop, computer, or outlet with an adapter (not included). I find it convenient to use if I am at a hotel with family or friends, especially if there is a limited number of outlets to plug your electronics into. This allows each of my family members to have their own USB port for our phones. However, it is not limited to phones only. As long as you have a USB chord, you can plug in any device from any brand. I tried it out myself in these photos and it allowed all my devices to charge at the same time! It does what it is made for, which is why I gave it five stars. The only thing I did not get to test out is the speed. Although when I checked my electronic devices while they were plugged in, they seemed to be charging at the same right if I were to not use the 1Byone USB hub.
