Product works great! USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN REMOVING FROM THE MICROWAVE!!! The package says 90 seconds...too long try 35-40.
I had bought one of those NO NO hair removal system and I got INGROWN HAIRS on my CHEEK/CHIN and I could NOT imagine what it was. I use all kinds of Acne products to get rid of a large patch on my face just to find out it was INGROWN HAIRS. I purchased this product and used it once and EUREKA, gone in just a couple of days.
However, I would NOT say it was all that easy to use. It tells you to heat it up in the Microwave but when I did I heard a crackle sound as if it was aluminum placed in there but wasn't so I immediately removed it. I heated a swallow amount of water to a rolling boil and then removed from heating elements and set the jar in it with a cover and checked periodically to see if it was melted enough for use.
Apply wasn't as easy as expected, I suppose it take a little practice to get the hang of it since I had never used wax before.
This product is wonderful! Every other facial wax that I have ever used on my upper lip always made my lip break out with little white bumps like from heat after I used it. I think it was caused by the burning sensation from pulling the wax off and that irritated my skin. This product comes with a numbing cream that you put on after you wax and within minutes it stops the burning sensation that I always get after waxing. It does not make me break out like the other waxes did and the numbing cream stops the burning in a couple of minutes but be careful not to get it on your lip or it will get numb too! I love this product!
This is the best wax hair remover that I have ever used. And you don't need strips! The instructions say to microwave for 90 seconds. I needed about 1 1/2 minutes. CAUTION: It is very hot when it comes out of the microwave, so use care. Great product!!
Maybe I didn't use this product correctly, but it did not do what it claims. It was stringy and hard to use and it wouldn't stay on my face long enough to pull out the hair. One the other hand, it was less stringy than regular wax. It just doesn't work as well.
I purchased this wax kit because the kit I'd previously used wasn't on the shelf. I didn't realize until after I bought it that it didn't come with wax strips. A few weeks later when I finally got around to using it, I realized after reading the directions I didn't need strips because the way the wax is made, it semi-hardens fairly quickly so you can just pull out the hair with the wax.
Pulls out hairs effectively.
AWFUL smell (either my kit had been sitting on the shelf for a long time or this wax just smells awful)
Wax cools off quickly (within about two minutes you have to go back and reheat it or it's not able to spread)
Leave a "pull strip" (in other words, spread an extra quarter inch of wax past the hair you want to pull off because otherwise you're pulling hair out by the hair itself with some wax mixed in)
Tools included are useless (don't even bother with the tools they provide. Once the wax gets on them, they're permanently unusable because of the caked on wax)
Wasteful (I waxed my eye brows and I'd say about a third of the wax was gone)
No room for mistakes (if the wax was put on a part of your eye brow you wanted to keep, good luck getting the remaining wax off. It's near impossible to get out of your hair once it's in there)
Overall, a complete waste of money. Don't give this product a second thought. Move on to the higher quality kit.
Tried this, tore my skin, on upper area over lip. Won't do that again.
Totally worth it. I usually have to wax brows every two weeks, blonde hairs are always too hard to tweeze. You don't have amazing control with the swab but definitely great for touch ups and lip waxes.
I've used at home wax kits for more than 10 years and had great success. However, the brand I had previously used and really liked was unavailable so I bought this one. Awful. It actually took more than 6 minutes to melt the wax enough to get it to a proper consistency. It dries very quickly and get hard and brittle. WHen it is brittle it's very hard to clean up. Waste of time and money.
the packing was not appropriate. the packing was opened. it was not properly packed.
Cheaper than going to the salon, and works just as well, however, after a few uses, it breaks apart on the skin, making hair removal painful and difficult.
