Moom Organic Hair Removal With Tea Tree Refill Jar -- 12 oz
I am a licensed esthetician with 10+ years of waxing experience, so I know what I'm talking about. I really wanted to love this, a natural, organic, non-toxic hair removal method. However, this did not remove all of the hair. My legs were covered in fine hairs that moom simply would not pick up (and believe me, they were plenty long enough!). I can normally go 4-6 weeks between waxing my legs, with moom, they never even looked or felt smooth, and within 2 weeks my legs were completely hairy. Terrible. I also did my brazilian wax with moom, awful results. Slightly less painful than with traditional wax, I'll give you that, but it just wouldn't get all of the hair. Not worth the trouble. I'll continue to use my resin based hard wax on my bikini and soft wax on my legs. It's not organic but it works, and with a layer of coconut oil to protect my skin I'm not as worried about the ingredients, it's only on my body for a few seconds. (btw, I did not use oil with moom, I followed directions perfectly.) Wanted to love moom, but it simply did not work. Bummer.

Moom - eco-friendly wax at home works great!
I had a friend give me a wax with regular wax and loved the results but hated all the mess and waste - throwing away lots of paper and sticks and strips, the messy electric wax heater, and WHAT was that wax made out of anyway, going boiling hot right onto my skin?? I didn't love the smell, or the rash I got after.
Sugaring is what I found when I went on YouTube searching for an environmentally friendly alternative to waxing. Sugaring is a very old and traditional way to remove hair, which you can do by making a simple sticky caramel paste with sugar and citrus juice on the stove.
The sugar paste is then used like a hair removal wax, but at room temperature, and it won't stick to your hands. There are videos that show people waxing without even using cloth strips or wooden applicators, just rolling the ball of sugar on the skin and "snapping" it to remove the hair.
For me, sugaring leaves my skin feeling freshly exfoliated and moisturized. It is SO much nicer than conventional waxing!
Moom is basically an at-home sugaring kit that I use because I'm too lazy/busy to make the sugar paste at home. It has added essential oil but otherwise seems to be simply sugar and citrus in a jar, precooked. There is a kit with the wooden applicators and muslin strips, or you can buy this refill and use without, or cut your own cloth strips from an old pillowcase and use a butter knife.
The sugar washes off with warm water... so it is super easy if you make a mistake or drip it anywhere. It can go right down the drain without fear of clogging, or into a greywater system without polluting.
It takes some practice to learn to use Moom, and it works less well if you are overheated. I will sometimes cool off my skin with a cool shower before starting. I find it works on fine and coarse hair, but I will use blunt scissors to trim excessively long hair to 1/2 or 1/4" before using.
If you have truly coarse hair, and/or if you have never tried waxing or sugaring, try getting one professional sugaring or waxing at a salon and then start sugaring to follow up, and you might be able to keep up with it from there. It's important to use your free hand to pull your skin taut when you 'snap' the sugar ball or strip off, and having someone else teach me to wax helped me understand that part. Most of the time when it doesn't work, it's because the skin is not pulled tight enough.
Moom is an awesome beauty product! Say goodbye to the guilt of throwing plastic razors in the landfill!

Best Wax Ever
I love Moom products. Goes on easy if you let it sit out or warm up the jar in warm/hot water for a couple of minutes. DO NOT microwave cause it won't work as well and will be ruined for future uses ( I learned the hard way). This does NOT come with the reusable muselin strips or wooden applicators (popcicle sticks) but can purchase here at Vitacost. They wash easy with just warm water and hang dry. Mine lasted for about a year.

I just ordered a Moom kit from another site and used it for the first time. I have been waxing at home know for a couple of months but had run out of supplies. When I saw the moom kit and read about how it does not stick to the skin and does not hurt, I thought I would give it a try. Will have to use a few more times to get it to give as good a hair removal as waxing, but OMG, there was virtually no pain when removing fabric strips and the fact that I can wash and reuse the fabric strips is incredible. Now that I see that vitacost carries this as such a great price, I will be buying all my Moom from them!
