The Body Politik Wax Bar in Vancouver: A quick review

What is it: The Body Politik Wax Bar is a no-fuss waxing space for men and women that will get you sleek for summer — or maintain your meticulous (hair) landscaping — from top to toes. 

Beauty bonus: We love the all-inclusive attitude of this wax bar!  The shop's owner, Carmen Perez, caters to everyone — "big bodies, little bodies, cis bodies, trans bodies, battle-scarred or airbrush-perfect: Every body is beautiful. Every body is deserving of care," according to her website. #love

Plus, she uses luxe I Love My Muff products to soothe skin, so your seriously smooth post-treatment.

Beauty bummer: Not really a bummer in our beauty books, but the salon is remodelling, so the atmosphere was a bit less spa-like than usual when we stopped by. 

Overall: If you're like us, waxing feels like a true representation of the, "beauty is pain" adage. But Carmen does a super job of keeping it as quick and painless as possible. 

She efficiently whipped us into bikini shape in her uber-clean and simple studio. 

Have questions? She professionally explains solutions to you without it seeming like a sales pitch. 

And an added bonus for busy beauty fans: online booking! 

Would I recommend? Yes, from the minimalist design of her studio, to the top-notch service — we'd definitely get smooth at The Body Politik again.

Price: $8 to $85.  See the full price list here.  

Where to buy: 1735 Commercial Drive, Vancouver or
