REVIEW | Strip It Hair Removal Chocolate Sugaring + Giveaway

Have you tried a product and it became your favorite you thought you'd never want anything better anymore? I experienced that. Last year, I reviewed this product called Strip It Hair Removal Sugaring and it instantly became my favorite. I have tried other brands but nothing beats my first love, not until I have tried it's sister, Chocolate Sugaring. Ms. Arlette, the owner of Strip It, contacted me and she told me that she's willing to send me samples of their Chocolate Sugaring for me to try out. I fell in love with their first sugaring kit, so who am I to say no?

Product Information

STRIP IT! The best ready-to-use hair removal sugaring in the Philippines! SUGARING is also known as Egyptian sugar wax. All natural & water-soluble, so it’s safe to use on the face, body, bikini area, and even on sensitive skin.

The new Strip It Chocolate Sugaring has real Cacao extracts that gives extra moisturizing effect on the skin after your sugaring session. It leaves a yummy chocolate-y scent to your skin too! It is advised not to put any lotion or creamy moisturizer after sugaring/waxing so this product is just the solution for that. Cacao is known to hydrate the skin and turns dry skin smooth and soft, giving light natural glow. 

Sugaring falls into the category of epilation. This means that the hair is removed from its roots; below the skin's surface thus hair is unseen from 2-4weeks (depending on your hair growth). It is one of the reasons why it is preferable than shaving or depilation (creams). Many users report that sugaring slowly reduces the growth of hair, so the more often you wax: hair growth will appear sparser, softer & finer. This leaves the skin silky, lighter and hairless for weeks!  Any hair appearing before 2 weeks is not re-growth but hairs that were too short to be removed during the procedure.

“Strip it” also exfoliates, since dead skin cells and dirt are stripped off at the same time. And the Calamansi promotes skin lightening! Since sugaring adheres tightly to the hair but not the skin, there is 50% less pain & discomfort as compared to using other waxes. Even better, each session becomes less painful as time goes, since the hair follicles turn weaker every time. This also means less chicken skin.

“Strip It” is a type of cold wax. No heating is required

Each Kit Includes: 100g Chocolate Sugaring, 1 pack cloth strips, 1 applicator and instruction sheet. 

Price: P199.00

I actually made a video for you to see up close the items I received as well as a simple demo on how to use it.



I also made photo illustrations with instructions that came in the kit.

  • Make sure the skin is completely clean and dry. Powder lightly if skin is oily, and then brush it off completely. You may stir the sugaring slowly inside the rub to get a smoother consistency.

  • Hair should be at least 1/4 inch long.

  • Apply Strip It to your skin with the wooden spatula, in the direction of your hair growth. The skin surface must be flat so do this while stretching your skin thus covering the full area.




  • Take a cloth strip, press it down firmly onto the waxed area and rub for a few seconds only. Remember to leave a small space at the end of the strip for pulling. Hold your skin taut (stretched tight) so that all hairs will be pulled when your strip off the cloth.




  • Then immediately strip off the cloth in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Do this rapidly but close to the skin. If the strip is removed slowly or sugaring stayed on the skin too long, the hair will not come off. You need a little force in pulling.

  • If few stray hairs remain, you can re-wax or tweeze them.

  • Wipe the skin with a damp cloth or towel afterwards to remove excess sugaring.


Here's my sister's leg's photo before and after the procedure. It now brighter and hairless. Awesome, right? There had been some redness and bumps but went away after an hour. We did not use any after waxing cream or lotions, not even alcohol. The1 is really moisturizing you won't feel your skin drying out after the procedure. Right now, my sister is loving her smooth legs she even wanna wear shorts almost all the time!

What I like:

  • Sealed items.

  • Came with instructions and product information.

  • Very easy to use.

  • NO heating required hence, no burning of the skin.

  • Pulls hair effectively (really short ones need to be plucked).

  • Moisturizing.

  • No irritations felt.

  • Skin got brighter because of its exfoliating properties.

  • Very affordable.

  • Locally available.


What I don't like:

  • Quite messy to use because of it's stickiness.

  • It smells amazing but I only got a little hint of the chocolate scent.

  • Although it is still affordable, the price is a bit higher than the regular variant which may be off to some.


I love the first product I've tried from them but this I love more. Though both worked really well on removing hairs, this has an add on factor of moisturizing skin after every pull. It does not moisturize like lotions do but you can feel that your skin still feels nice even after the pressure of waxing. The smell is really good albeit the chocolate scent is really faint. I expected more. Nonetheless, as for it's main purpose which is to remove hair, it did a pretty amazing job and I am definitely repurchasing. I will be sticking to this, for sure, unless they come up with something better.

  11. Yes, hairless for almost 2 weeks. Unlike with shaving that you see your hair growing back very quickly.
