How sweet it is

From the infomercial archives comes yet another must-have beauty product. Alexandria Body Sugaring promises easy, painless, long-lasting hair removal. The company offers an “all-natural” alternative to tweezing, shaving, waxing, lasers and electrolysis with its Sugaring roll-ons and pastes. These sticky, sugar-based formulas are applied directly to the skin, then later pulled off — along with unwanted hair — on long cotton strips, much like waxing. Painless? The Alexandria Web site tells the whole story with a complete line of hair-removal and skin-care products to order. The basic self-sugaring kit sells for about $30. The how-to video is sold separately for $7. The Web site also includes body lotions, nail-care items, sugaring tips and techniques, special offers, product comparisons, a brief history of ancient medicinal uses of sugar and contact information. Go to or call 888-77-SUGAR for more details.
