In the kit... with Kerri Ann Angus
With a diverse professional background that includes owning successful specialist waxing salon brand, Peaches, with three salons across Scotland and two education centres, Kerri-Ann Angus has tried more products than most.
These are the five she can't live without.
Ideal for short, tough hair, Cirepil Euroblonde wax beads create a hard, non-strip wax with an ultra-fluid and flexible texture, suitable for use on both large and small treatment areas.
Why Kerri loves it: “This product really is the star of the show at Peaches. It is hands-down the front runner on all non-strip waxes I’ve tried in my career. We’ve used this since we opened and have tried other products since, but it always comes out on top for results.”
Available in five blends, Citrus, Rosemary and Bay, Original Mint, Pure Lavender, and Lime and Basil, Ruff Stuff’s Daily Scrubs all feature a coconut oil base to nourish skin while providing both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties for protection.
Why Kerri loves it: “At Peaches, we are huge on supplying our clients with the right aftercare – our daily, affordable non-negotiable for every client at home is Ruff Stuff Daily Scrub.
Clients love that they can use it all over the body and it’s brilliant for prolonging your tan, removing fake tan, and, of course, keeping ingrown hairs away. The sugar melts beautifully and you’re left with a moisture film that isn’t oily on the skin, so you’re super smooth.”
The A Bit of Rough Wash Cloth, from waxing expert Jack Dunn, is an exfoliating cloth made from a mix of fibres gentle enough to use on the face and robust enough to exfoliate the whole body, removing dead skin cells and leaving skin glowing, soft and smooth.
Why Kerri loves it: “This is a firm favourite with our back waxing clients and is also popular with our clients who love to fake tan. For back waxing, it’s brilliant because it’s big enough to get around your own back with it to ensure it’s well exfoliated pre- and post- waxing.”
Aloeclear’s soothing and cooling roll-on gel solution is formulated with glycolic and salicylic acid, plus aloe vera and mentha peperita, to release trapped hairs and prevent ingrown hairs while calming the skin and relieving redness.
Why Kerri loves it: “Although it’s a chemical exfoliate, it’s really gentle and works a treat for our clients. It’s also moisturising so doesn’t leave your skin peeling or dry like other exfoliants would. Although it’s been designed for the bikini area, our clients love it on their legs and underarms too if they struggle with ingrown hair there.”
Thalgo’s Biodepyl Anti-Regrowth Solution slows down hair regrowth and acts on density, length, and thickness. The solution features a complex of essential oils to limit the production of cells responsible for hair growth and is packed with ingredients to soothe the skin post-wax.
Why Kerri loves it: “I have used this since I started waxing. It’s the perfect match for us as a wax salon and it’s worked for all my clients who have tried it – they’ve all noticed a reduction in their hair growth”
