What did you use to prep the face before using Coco?
I was going to guess and say either witch hazel or alcohol. Which is a BIG no no. Basically you completely removed any and all oil and moisture from the skin and then waxed. Thats like waxing after a sunburn. Berodins blue or cirepil blue both have plastic in them and the reason you remove excess oil in the skin is to make sure the wax adheres to the hair.
Se-Brazil Coco is all-natural and very moisturizing, for already dehydrated skin I use the prep pads or the Calm serum before. If the skin doesnt look dehydrated and is nice a oily I just apply the wax. Have you seen the face wax tutorial on our website where I show you how to apply and remove Coco for face waxing??

Also, the vellus hair of the face is seated differently than the hair on the rest of the body. Some waxes are better at removing this hair than others AND when this hair is removed it may cause an allergic reaction to occur such as red itchy skin or hives (welts). This is called a histamine reaction. Even if your client never experience it before, if you are using a wax that is better at getting the vellus hairs of the face, this could happen. If this happens, you can instruct your client to take an antihistamine and treat it as you would an allergic reaction.
