The sexy fashion brand has been exceedingly successful in its home market of Australian where it currently operates fifty five different retailers, however, they have publicly released plans for movement into the United Kingdoms, specifically in the areas of Westfield Stratford, Leeds, Newcastle and Liverpool. Thus far, Honey Birdette plans to create forty new stores in the aforementioned UK areas (which is a increase of 37 up from the three stores they already operate within the United Kingdom).

In addition to the brand’s UK expansion plan, they also have their sites dead set on the United States of America due to a huge up-surge in sales from the red, white and blue lingerie consumer niche (they reported that their sales increased 374 % from American sales alone!).

Unlike their original Australian based website, the US based website features a bevvy of special offers and increased user-friendly interface features. Some of the most notable of these special features include a new offer which allows buyers to knock off the whole price of normal delivery for any product purchase of $ 50 US dollars or more as well as the ability to get rid of the whole price of express delivery for any product purchase over $ 100 US dollars. According to some recent public statements from the company, Honey Birdette also has big plans for setting up numerous retailer boutiques within the United States in the “-near future-“.

DIY Hair Removal Wax using SUGAR

Hey guys, it’s Wengie!

 

Start with the hard wax. You’ll need two cups of sugar, a quarter cup of lemon juice, and a quarter cup of water. Combine all the ingredients in a pot and bring it to a boil. It’ll get thicker and start to smell so good, like lemon meringue pie. Turn down the heat and simmer it for seven minutes, or until it reaches a caramel color. Then, pour it all into a jar and let it cool down. Make sure that your jar is hot, a cool glass will crack due to the temperature difference. Then leave it to cool.

 

When it’s cooled down sufficiently, start to mold the hardened syrup, like wax. Then smooth it on to your skin. Unfortunately, that didn’t work. Okay, let’s try something slightly different. Coat a knife with the hot syrup. It’s hot but bearable.

 

Okay, now let’s compare it to the stripped-free wax. This one here is so much more comfortable. It’s not burning. Wow, it’s like heaven! Oh my gosh, I’m pain-free right now. The burning hurts just as much as when we pulled up the wax strip. Okay, now let’s pull it off. Look, there’s hair, and it didn’t hurt that much.

 

Next, Wengie try another way. Use one cup of sugar instead of two cups. Combine the sugar with a quarter cup of lemon juice and a quarter cup of water. Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer until it’s a caramelized golden brown color. One minute it’ll be yellow, but the next it’ll turn brown. Pour it into a jar to cool down. Next, apply the paste to your skin. It burns. But, “no pain, no gain.” Let it sit, then pull it off. Unfortunately, it only removed a few hairs.

 

Okay, now let’s try the store-bought version. The consistency is about the same as what I made before. It doesn’t burn at all. Hopefully, unlike the DIY wax, this one will actually stick to the strip. Now yank it off. Do you see? That’s major hair-removal.

 

Let’s see if the DIY soft wax will perform. No, it’s not as good.
