I ordered this because my salon girl put something other than soothing solution on my brow after waxing that caused major irritation and won't go back. So this was my first self-wax. I have used on my brow and like that the strips are clear and you can pre-cut them to your individual brow shape. I also used on bikini area - and they work pretty well. I am new at this too, so in order to avoid irritation I will do a second wax after 24 hours [recommended]. Soothing lotion is more of a moisturizing oil rather than a cooling/soothing like you would get at a salon - its ok if you aren't extremely sensitive. But - Yes - you can pre-cut them. And also, you can get use from both sides of the strip when peeled apart... not just the clear side.
I like this product but it doesn't remove all the hairs. i guess that's where tweezers come in. After you finish waxing apply a little oil they give you to take off the wax but don't leave it on. I don't know about other people but this irritates my skin if i don't wash it off.
I've been buying this product for awhile now. I love it. I've tried the strips that have the separate wax tub. After using the pre waxed strips I would never buy the tub again. These strips are more consistent and a lot easier to use. They work great !
I've used this product for over a year and I love it. One box costs half a visit to the salon and you can get about 5 salon visit's worth! You're able to do this in the privacy of your own home. Effective use of this product means ensuring you rub the strips vigorously before you separate & apply to skin. I would definitely not recommend this for use on underarms. It's hard to keep the skin taught in that area as you're pulling the strip away-especially if you're doing it yourself. Even with someone helping, it's not that easy. I leave that to the professionals. I use this for my upper lip, eyebrows and hairline. Wonderful results, everytime! I have thick, coarse hair, but it grows back thinner each time.
These strips are a little hard to use and messy, but not nearly as messy as the regular wax. They work better then any cream hair remover, but don't expect no pain. This is as painful as waxing gets...but that's to be expected, I guess. I won't use them on the bikini line because I am too sensitive, but for the lip and chin, they work just fine.
I love the ease of this product! I use it monthly with no problem at all.
So I bought this to wax my upper lip, this kit says we can use on upper lip so I did and OMG I am sitting here writing in pain. I waxed last night and throughout the whole night It was burning and painful, spots of blood and so swollen and then I wake up this morning and it looks just horrible, red, dry bloody spots, swollen and still so much pain. This is definitely too strong for the upper lip, when you pull the strip off it pulled off parts of my skin along with it. Its just horrible.
So this was my first time waxing and I said what the hey! I got this and was pretty excited to use it. I used it on my upper lip to start off with and let me just say that i was not very pleased with the results. The first couple of times going over it there was little to be seen on the strip. I continued to go over the area and noticed some hairs appeared to me waxed off, but then realized less than a week later that the hairs were simply broken off when they grew back! The only thing this was good at removing was the skin after repeated failed attempts to remove the hair which left scabs! SCABS!!! Turn around and run away! This is not worth your time, money, or the pain!
Works well but it is difficult to separate the the 2 films of plastic. I personally warm up the wax by placing the plastic under my breasts while I do other things but while fussing about trying to separate the sheets it can cool rapidly. I would like the company to make an "easy tab" to pull apart the sheets.
I got tired of paying $20.00 for underarm waxing at a salon and decided to give these strips a try. I based my decision on previous customers reviews. These strips are easy to use and great. I only used one strip per underarm. I cut them in half and it only took me less than 10 minutes for each underarm. The oil is also great and easy to use. I did however use my tweezers to remove less than a few hairs that were left behind. I'm very satisfied with this product. I also taught my teenage daughter how to use them. I recommended this product to my family and friends. If you want salon results this is the product to use at home.
LOVE this product. I used the old method of waxing... the hot wax. These strips are amazing! My teenage daughter showed them to me as a friend showed them to her. We save a LOT of money doing it with the Sally Hansen. Would recommend these to anyone! Great value and VERY easy to use!!
I am warming them up in a microwave for a better preparation.
These strips worked really good. They removed hair and were cost effective!
These are good for when you are getting ready and notice some areas that you quickly need to wax. I will keep them on hand but would not recommend for my main source of waxing.
OW. I used this for my eyebrows. I only did between and a little on top. Wouldn't dare try below. It did get all the hair... along with the top 5 layers of my skin! The areas I used it were 'different' from the rest of my skin for at least 2 weeks after. I was in pain and swollen for days after I used this. Regular waxing only leaves me red and painful the day I do it. I still have the rest of the box sitting there wondering if I dare try to use on a different area of my body as to not waste money.
I suppose I have sensitive skin. I have waxed my face before with another brand of ready use wax strips but these seemed to contain a much more gooey wax that melds to the skin, not just the hair. Needless to say, I look like I have rug burn in the areas of my face that I waxed. And yes I followed the instructions.
I expected more given it is a Sally Hansen product and after watching positive reviews from videos. However, I was WRONG!!! The wax stripes burned my skin and caused a scalp to form. Consequently, I had to spend more money to buy some Neosporin triple antibiotic cream. And for what it is worth, it did not remove all the hair.
This work just as I wanted . I advise you try the finishing oil on your arm before putting it on your face. I can not use it.
I was using microwave wax, which worked fine except there is a learning curve or it does not work well. With these strips, as long as the hair is long enough, the process is quick. There is no worry about temperature of the wax, so there is no waiting or mess! I would recommend these for small areas; face, bikini, and underarms for ease of application and control.
I have been using these strips for years. They are perfect for facial hair removal and touch ups. Easy to use, affordable, long lasting.
