MOOM - Organic & 100% Natural Hair Remover
FIrst off, I am a hairy bitch. My arm hairs are super long, I pluck my uni-brow at least bi-monthly and I have been using MOOM to wax my own bikini line for years. I have even waxed below the knee on my legs a few times but for some reason I have always been afraid to wax my own armpits. This trip was the time to pull the trigger, I couldn't afford to do it at a salon and I had the materials necessary so why not? (MOOM's kits include reusable waxing strips that can be hand or machine washed, I have always hand washed to save on water! Also I think that the strips will last longer if I keep them out of the spin cycle.)
Truth time, waxing fucking hurts and it did take two separate sessions, two days in a row after getting out of the shower I did as much as I could handle, but I did it! I successfully waxed my own pits!! It was a small feat but I am quite proud. The results have been amazing! I haven't shaved the pits for almost two weeks, the hair normally returns there within 30 hours. It's not perfect but it's pretty darn good.

YESTO - hypoallergenic facial towelettes
They were helpful for my busy schedule of box wine drinking, walks on the boardwalk and deep talks with new friends. But they were AMAZING during my two epic camping trips! I of course kept the dirty cloths in my pack because I would never liter, a good camper leaves a site more beautiful than when they got there and even the used wipes actually kept my pack smelling great!
I have used a few YESto products before, they all smell insanely good and have been really effective. There was a lip balm in my life at one point and these wipes will probably be a staple in my luggage for further travels. A seemingly ideal business with great practices and a positive mission, the #YESTOMOVEMENT is definitely worth a few minutes of your internet allotment.
