Waxing poetic 

Dare to be bare, as they say. Poetic, the cosmetics company, offers an aromatherapy hair-removal kit that’s calling all bikini-clad sunbathers to a depilatory experience of another kind. Promising to smooth skin while soothing the senses, the nine-piece Poetic Waxing Kit comes in an attractive and simple container that looks just like a coffee mug. (Presumably, it’s meant to hold the wax.) The kit includes two applicator sticks, pretreatment oil to protect the skin, wax, two special cleansers, and all the reassurance in the world that even a novice can strip his/her own body of unwanted hair at home. And that might be convenient, but don’t expect to save a fortune with this fancy do-it-yourself beauty treatment. The Poetic Waxing Kit rings in at just a hair less than a professional salon treatment. It is available at www.ibeauty.com and other retailers for about $40.
