I generally use strip wax on my legs and underarms so I’ve had more little phials of Azulene that comes with Parissa Waxes than I care to mention. But aside from a quick get-the-stickiness-off swipe, I’ve never really considered Azulene oil and what it can be used for and I’ve no idea how this has eluded me all this time because it’s a proper beauty life hack. Parissa Azulene Oil is generally billed to prevent ingrowing hairs, but because Azulene comes from the chamomile flower, it’s got all the soothing nature that you’d expect from Chamomile. So, it can treat razor burn (handy for boys as well), insect bites (it’s also disinfectant and anti-inflammatory) or spots and bumps that are red (don’t use on broken skin). Any skin irritation, really, including emergency (mild) sun-burn relief.
However, the ingredient list is below so if you know you have sensitivities you can avoid this particular oil.
isopropyl mystrate (vegetable source), tocopheryl acetate (vitamin e), azulene (chamomilla recutita extract), menthol crystals
Parissa Azulene is £8.19 HERE and it’s one of those things you should keep in the emergency beauty cupboard. I’m never chucking out those phials again!
