Soft or hard wax products are very different from Sugaring products. Waxing is a popular & easily accessible method for body hair removal, but once you try sugaring you’re likely to never go back to waxing. Here’s why:
Wax products are made of resins which adhere to live skin cells. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted discomfort.
When waxing, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing undue levels of pain and breakage of hair.
Most products used for waxing are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross contamination.
Waxing requires hot wax which risks burning sensitive skin. While you can adjust to this risk, and avoid it with a qualified skincare expert, it’s less intimidating to not have to worry about it at all.
Our Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells, only hair. Therefore, when it is removed, it gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind fresh glowing skin.
Sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. The sugar paste seeps into the hair follicle, lubricating the hair root.
Sugaring paste is all natural. In fact, the only ingredients are pure sugar, water, and lemon, making it edible and safe for all skin types.
Sugaring is done at body temperature. There’s no need for heat. The Sugar paste adheres to the hair, not the skin, and lubricates the root for easier, less painful removal from the follicle.
Regular hydrating and exfoliating of your skin between Sugaring hair removal treatments is just as important as receiving treatment.
Exfoliate your skin 2 days prior to your appointment. Not the day before, day of, or day after. This can over-work the area and cause irritation.
Do not use a razor or hair removal creams between appointments as this will interfere with your goal to refine and diminish your hair growth to have smooth healthy skin.
Tiny red spots may appear on the skin for a few hours after your sugaring hair removal treatment. If this should happen, do not be alarmed. This is the natural reaction caused when a hair is removed by the root and it will go away.
We recommend that you wait 24 hours before exposing your skin to the sun, infrared lamps, or solarium. Do not use perfumed soap or products with chemical irritants on treated areas within 24 hours of your treatment. Do not apply deodorant to underarms for 12 hours after a sugaring treatment. We recommend you avoid make-up for 12 hours following a facial sugaring treatment.
Exfoliating daily is highly recommended but please wait 2 days after your treatment to begin.

I really love this place! It's a cute little spot, very chic and inviting. (If you come in from Bolsa Ave it's easier to find, as it's located near the rear of the shopping center.). I have done both the spray tan and the sugaring here and I couldn't be happier with both services....I'm always happy with the results. Now the custom spray tan, I've only done once about a month ago. I LOVED IT!! I'm scheduled again for spray tan cause I'm going on a mini vacay!! So looking forward to the glow you get from the tan. This is the go to for all things secret!
If I could rate it more than 5 stars I would! I am so glad I found this hidden gem! It's been 3 days since I got a spray tan and let me just tell you, it looks AMAZING! I have received so many compliments. 3 of my girlfriends will be coming with me next time because they were so in love with it. The place is very cute and clean! & the experience was A+ because they make you feel so comfortable. I'm from Torrance and this is completely worth the drive! Thank you ladies for such a great spray tan experience!
I have spent most of my life baking in the sun. My sister recently had a serious melanoma scare, which scared me! I started trying different spray tanning spots hoping to find the perfect tan (I was willing to give up the sun, but not my tan!). Most places gave me an uneven, orange tan...and were so expensive! I'm so pleased with Secret Sun! I have had 2 spray tans, and just recently signed up for their membership. I absolutely love the rapid tan! I look forward to being golden brown all year with no damage to my skin. Thanks guys!
Can you say BEST Brazilian sugaring I have ever gotten? Heard this place was opening and had to come check it out... And glad I did! THANK YOU ALEXA for doing such an amazing job. This is now my place to go. Anyone wanting to go somewhere with a beautiful relaxing setting that has a wonderful staff and wants a 5 STAR sugaring this is the place for you
I had a spray tan with Cody and sugaring with Libby. They have the best products and made me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend Secret Sun and will be going back for sure
Best spray tan ever ! Went to Palm Springs this weekend and all of my friends kept complementing me on my tan. Couldn't believe it was a spray tan, looked so natural. Can't wait to go back.
I went to Secret Sun for a spray tan before a recent trip to Cancun. Cody is awesome! My spray tan looked great and lasted throughout my trip. We went with the express tan since I was short on time. The express tan can be washed off after two hours instead of the normal 12. It continues to develop after being washed off. The end result was a beautiful bronze color with no orange at all. Next time I get a spray tan it will be from Secret Sun!
Absolutely love it here. One of the best spray tans I have ever received. My skin tone is very hard to make look natural when it comes to the spray tan but they do such an awesome job and it lasted very long too. The girls make your whole experience inviting and not awkward when you have to drop down to your birthday suit. If you want a great natural look for the summer do it here. It's worth it!!
Golden brown & sun-kissed in January thanks to Cody and Secret Sun! I got a rapid airbrush tan last night and the color today is AMAZING. Loved how I was able to wash the solution off after just two hours! The salon is so stylish too. Can't wait to go back for another tan and to try sugaring. The secret is out! Thanks Secret Sun 🙂
Cody was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable from the moment I stepped into her beautiful tanning salon. Her staff is so knowledgable about the services they offer, everyone was so friendly and welcoming! I'm a bridal stylist and I can't wait to tell all of my brides about this hidden gem in Seal Beach. I can't wait to book my next appointment!
I was extremely happy with my spray tan from Secret Sun!! First off, I called last minute to get a spray tan before Stagecoach this past weekend and was thrilled that they were still able to accommodate me. I was greeted by Alexa who made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. After three days of blazing heat out in the desert, my tan held up really nicely and didn't have that fake orange spray tan look...it felt very natural. I can't wait for my next Secret Sun tan 🙂
This is the best spray tan I have ever had. I'm on the lighter side, and it was just the perfect light tan I was looking for. It looked so natural. Loved it!
I was very satisfied with my air brush tan from Secret Sun. I don't trust the spray tanning machines and have been searching for a salon that offers air brushing for some time. All three times I've been air brushed, I've never been disappointed. More importantly, I've never looked orange or blotchy. Cody was very friendly and professional, which made me feel extremely comfortable during the session. I've received both the standard air brush tan and the rapid tan. I couldn't shower for 12 hours after the standard tan, so it's best to book your appointment the day before an event. The rapid tan was nice because you can rinse off two hours after the session and it didn't stain my clothes at all. I noticed I continued to get darker throughout the day and even the following day. I would still recommend booking the rapid tan the day before an event, but it's a nice option if you're crunched for time.
I am obsessed with this salon! Ever since I got spray tanned here I cannot go anywhere else! Super friendly service and they made me feel comfortable when getting sugaring done which is very important to me! I will be back....!
It's been two weeks since I had my last spray tan from Secret Sun ...my normally pale skin is STILL bronzed & golden. I love it. The Salon is very clean & private. I was extremely comfortable & at ease during the spraying. I plan to return as much as I am able. Thank you Secret Sun for moving to my neighborhood ...I love you
I love this place for many reasons. The spray tan is organic and a great color. No orange residue. Both girls that have sprayed me were professional. The prices are fair. The boutique is so cute and very clean.
I got a spray tan at Secret Sun for prom and I loved it! The customer service was great, the lady that helped me made me feel super comfortable. Definitely would recommend this place.
I love this place! I have been here twice, and both times I felt so welcomed and comfortable. Cody and the other ladies are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I received spray tans both times I went and I'm highly satisfied. I'm definitely going back! Thanks ladies for a great spray tanning experience!
It was my 1st time getting a spray tan. Making appointment online was easy and convenient. I got my spray tan done by Cody. She is super nice and informative. She told me a lot of important information about spray tanning and how to take care of it afterwards. She made me feel comfortable. The tan itself came out very nicely. It has been a week since i had it done and it hasn't faded away yet. I will be back!
My favorite tanning salon! The salon is always clean and decorated super cute. Everyone is also really friendly and I always get a great tan!
I got my spray tan the day before leaving for Ixtapa Mexico. It was a nice even tan. After 7 days of being in the pool and ocean I could still notice where the tan was.
I have gone to Secret Sun a few times now. Each time I have gone, the staff has been incredibly friendly and helpful. The salon is top notch and the service is excellent! Cody is amazing and so knowledgeable with the products and services at the Salon. I would recommend this place to anyone I know! I really love going here; it is very inviting and you always feel welcome when you are there! I could not be happier with the product or service at Secret Sun!
I had a spray tan done by Cody and I couldn't believe how natural and beautiful it came out. Not only is she professional, she is knowledgable and only uses the best products that are organic. My tan looked so amazing, it gave my skin a natural tan glow! (Who doesn't love that?!) If u are looking to look your best you must see Cody at Secret Sun, you won't regret it! (Like I have in the past seeing ppl who didn't know what they were doing and I turned out orange! ) Thanks Cody for making me look and feel beautiful!!
I booked an appointment for Tuesday this week for my first-ever Brazilian! I went Into this beautiful place and was met with warm, welcoming attention. I got all ready and guess what, my hair wasn't long enough! Instead of going through with the treatment and taking my money, she explained to me that I should wait another week to truly maximize my sugaring and get the real effects as they should be. What an amazing and honest woman! She lost a time slot and I felt so bad about it, but she was gracious and kind and rebooked me as if it were no big deal at all. I needed to post, even without a completed service because if anyone deserves a positive review on customer, it is the gorgeous Alexa!
If you are looking for a quick, easy, natural, and amazing spray tan you should absolutely schedule an appointment here at My Secret Sun! Most tanning salons leave you looking orange and splotchy, but Cody(owner)has perfected the natural organic look. Her cheerful and talented staff are always there to greet me with a warm welcome and chocolate! The salon is always so clean and neat too which is comforting. Thank you Cody and the girls for making me look and feel amazing for all of my special events 🙂
