I started DIY waxing my underarms before my wedding but I haven’t done it in a long time because they changed the recipe of the wax I was buying and it stopped working very well. I’m interested in maybe trying sugaring though. Has anyone tried this themselves? Does anyone have a tried and true DIY recipe?

I tried it once a few years ago and it was a horrific sticky mess. Based on that experience, I have no idea how it could possibly work. At least it rinses off easily unlike wax though.
I use GIGI microwaveable wax and it works great. Maybe a different wax brand would work for you?
I don’t know how people stand the pain of underarm waxing- I can do bikini area and lip no problem but the underarms are my downfall.

I’ve never made the sugar solution at home, but I do sugar myself. I bought a little kit from Moom, and I love it so much more than wax. Wax usually irritated my skin and left it red for the rest of the day. I tried hard wax and strip wax, and found that hard wax was best for anywhere on my face and bikini area. I tried Moom sugar on a whim, and pitched my wax (I swear I don’t work for them, i just am over the moon happy with their product). I like that i can wash and then reuse the strips, plus if I ever put on too much wax, you can easily wash it off. It doesn’t bother my skin as much. If it helps, I bought the kit at Ulta for under $20, adn I’ve had it for about a year (I mostly do my upper lip, eye brows, and occasionally bikini line. I’ ve done a home brazilian twice – it just takes forever when I do it vs my waxing lady).
