After a brutally hot summer, I think many of us are actually looking forward to September, even if it means returning to all-night study sessions, boring teachers and all things school related. But whether you’re attending mommy & me classes, moving into the college dorm or taking on the role of the oldest broad in graduate school, luxuriating in some school-friendly spa products will make you feel like an A+ student.

BareEase & Cream

It might be a little too soon to be gearing up for Spring Break but it’s never too early to take the pain out of a bikini wax. This Ouchless Waxing Prep Kit created by Anesthesiologist, Dr. Edna Ma, M.D. is truly revolutionary. BareEase & Cream is a preparatory kit for use by women undergoing bikini waxing and laser hair removal procedures in the bikini area. Featuring lidocaine (4%) as its active ingredient, (the most safe, widely used topical anesthetic and superior numbing agent), along with natural ingredients including aloe and jojoba, the kit’s specially doctor-formulated cream will not only eradicate the pain but will leave your skin feeling soft, silky and sexy as well. Simply wear the cute, pink, soft, latex disposable panty for a half hour before your appointment and bring on the Brazilian! Visit
