Waxing Kara

This is a pretty unique business and one that we are all for! Waxing Kara was created by Beekeeper Kara who makes all-natural skincare products with the honey she harvests. The best part is as honey is a natural preservative, so many of the products she makes don’t expire.

This is a pick from Fat Girls Guide Editor-in-cheif Annette who had this to say about Anadalou. “To me they are a local brand. Created in my hometown. I found it at a natural beauty store one day. And later learned a friend from high school worked for them! I live for the 1000 Roses pearl exfoliator. I have sensitive skin so their sensitive line is best for me. They also have travel sizes which are essential!”
