Tanning/waxing place in Taichung...?


Anyone out there know of a place in Taichung with tanning beds? Also looking for a shop that does waxing, or at least a store where I can buy waxing strips. Any help appreciated, thanks.

funny question…since tanning is a terrible thing for most of the Taiwanese, I doubt, that you will find any tanning beds in Taiwan. but let us know, if you did.

There’s apparently no shortage of them in Taipei, so I was hoping I might be able to find one place in Taichung.

really…wow…never really paid attention to it, but never saw one either…anyways…I apologize for the prejudice. can’t help you with Taizhong…sorry le

Not really familiar with the area but I would sugg. that you check out Watson, maybe they will have some waxing strips?? If not, then like someone said in the other post, Noir would do… right!!!


yeah, checked out watson’s already; they have a wide array of skin whitening creams and little eyebrow shaver things but no waxing strips. The watson’s in hong kong had them though so i’m a bit dissapointed here :frowning:

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place in Taipei that does eyebrow and bikini waxing…an address and phone number would be really appreciated!! :help:

THANKS A LOT…my eyebrows are in desperate need of some TLC!

Same question as tinkerbell66. Any waxing place in Taipei? Gentle waxing since I have very sensitive skins…

I found some german waxing sugar in a place called J-mart (dunnow if their a chain) in Lu Zhou (Taipei county). found it worked as well as DIY wax at home (been DIYing for 10 years), though the fact that it was not microwave friendly made it a bit more tedious to use.

Careful with that tanning.

[quote]The Clare Oliver Melanoma Fund
Clare Oliver loved and embraced life. She was just 26 when she lost her battle with cancer, on 13 September 2007. Three years ago, she noticed a strange lump under her arm that was diagnosed as a Melanoma. This lump was cut out and her cancer scare made her even more determined to get on with her life. Clare travelled to Europe and went on to complete her second university degree.

But cancer came back and Clare took on the fight for her life. She reflected on the ‘why’ and made a connection with her use of solariums and sun exposure and her Melanoma. Clare was searching for perceived ideals of beauty and thought that a golden tan was necessary to attain that ideal. She, like so many other young people, used solariums in the belief that this was something akin to good health.

Clare became aware of the dangers of solarium use. She used her remaining time and energy to make certain that the rest of Australia heard and responded to that message. Skin protection from the sun and from rays is the message she shouted loud and clear. Melanoma awareness is the legacy Clare wanted to leave behind.

Throughout her campaign for Melanoma awareness Clare touched the hearts of the community, and governments are now focusing more on this serious health issue. Associate Professor Grant McArthur, a medical oncologist at Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, was Clare’s doctor and the first to praise her courage and determination. ‘Clare has taught us all about the importance of speaking out. Her voice will make a difference.’

The Clare Oliver Melanoma Fund has been established to honour the courage and bravery of Clare Oliver. 100% of proceeds from the fund will be directed to Melanoma research, focusing on research collaborations between leading melanoma research and treatment centres.



Tanning shops in Taipei? I have never seen one.

Where are tanning shops in Taipei? I could use some for mental therapy due to lack of sunshine.
