Awful Rash!!!

I have used Sally Hansen waxing products for about 10 years now and have also had profession waxing done. I usually get a little red post wax that lasts for maybe 10 minutes and usually have great results that last a long time. I usually buy the wax with the separate strips but thought "oh how nice! a mess free solution". I felt comfortable using this because I have used many different Sally Hansen products over the years without any adverse effects. However, something in these strips has irritated my face like nothing else ever had. I am 18 hours post wax and it is still red as fire and so sensitive. I have tried aloe, gentle face lotion for sensitive skin, and neosporin. The neosporin has been the only thing to start calming down the redness and taking away the million bee sting feeling. I don't have sensitive skin to begin with but something in this strip is unlike anything I have come across. To make matters worse, I am scheduled to take pictures this evening. I would have rather had the unwanted hair!

I've been using this specific product for over 5yrs now. I basically wax my whole face with it, lol! I've learned that the best way for these strips to work best is making sure the area you are waxing is clean, (use a face cleanser/scrub) and make sure the strips are really warm. running between your hands will not due. I did this and it worked but I found my self having to go over areas more or plucking left behind hair. Now I heat up a regular coffee mug filled with water for about 1-2 minute to make sure it stays warm for a while, and then run strips on the outside(should be hot) part of the mug before applying. It's and instant difference, strips are easier to pull apart and when applied and removed you can definitely see more hair removed. This product works great, and the money saved is amazing. There are eyebrow stencils you can also buy online to help with eyebrow waxing too. I recommend this product all the time. :)

I've used these FOREVER because they are so quick and easy. Two days ago I used them because of a friends wedding and my upper lip was a little much. For some reason the soothing blue liquid burned like crazy when I applied it. I've never had a problem so I ignored it. The next morning of the wedding day, my lip was BRIGHT RED. And burning. Two days later it's now a giant scab across my upper lip and to my nose. It looks like a chemical burn. I'm so sad bc I LOVED this product. I'm Italian and have waxed since I was 12. Nothing is easier than this product but now I can't even open my mouth without the scab splitting. BEWARE

I have been getting my upper lip waxed at a salon for years now. It's getting expensive and I figured I'd give it a try. I used the small strips and cut them in half to do sections of my upper lip because my skin rips easy. The strips were easy to cut and warmed up in my hands fast. Quick and simple with no overheating and a messy hot jar from the microwave. Only thing I did not like was the blue wax removing liquid it came with. That was able to get the wax off but did nothing to relieve my bright red skin.

Wax Strips

Strips need to be smaller about 1/4 in wide for brows. As wax strip it is hard to control wax.

The strips do work sometimes and they do remove most of the hair, but they leave your skin really sticky even if you wash it several times and is really hard to remove the glue from your skin. Additionally, this product can irritate some types of skin, for sensitive skin this is really harsh and it might irritate the region were it was applied. Lastly, if you have really thin hair this product won't remove the hair easily and it would take you about two to three strips to clear your area of hair. I guess as any other product is has its consequences and benefits but it bothers the most is how sticky or full of glue your skin will be after using this product and how hard it is to remove it.

Better than a salon

When I first tried this, I did not warm up the wax enough and It was very difficult and painful to rip off. however I found that blow drying the strips for about three seconds puts it at the perfect temperature! they're very easy to use and painless. obviously some people who gave such negative reviews did not read the box carefully. the strips are double sided so there's two in one. and the blue liquid that comes in the box removes extra wax from your skin. it's definitely cheaper than going to a salon. I'm not sure if it's just my hair but my hair does grow back pretty quickly. these are also great for my husbands unibrow

These strips are not bad. The value is good; you get a lot of strips in the box and in a lot of sizes, plus the bottle of oil. That's a lot more compared to the Veet strips I've used, which cost more. However, the quality of these strips doesn't seem as nice as the Veet product. These are not on paper, but on plastic. To me, the plastic seems to make it harder to pull back from the skin. I still get decent hair removal with this (like 75%) and what the strips don't get is easier to pluck. Will be buying again.

I just bought this a few hours ago, I prepared my skin by cleaning and exfoliating. I then warmed up the wax strips as said, put it on the right length of hair, rubbed in direction of hair growth, the pulled in opposite direction. All it did was leave residue all over the hair not pulling even one piece of hair. I kept trying in different areas and even after I showered, scrubbed, put the after oil on the wax it has yet to come off.

Better than shaving

If you are in a nice cool room you will avoid the mess of having the wax melt in your hands. I love how long the hair takes to grow back and it seems to grow back more sparse. I don't have thick hair but I imagine that the thicker the hair the more painful it is. You get used to it that it becomes painless. It doesn't work very well on my underarms but i do recommend it especially if you are going on a short trip and won't have time to shave.

I got this product thinking it would be like the Veet Wax Strips I have bought, considering Sally Hansen is such a well known brand, but they were horrible! The strips were way too small except for 4 of them. I use them for my legs. They barely picked up any hair. I always let the hair grow out the right length and the strips did not do anything whatsoever. I will never buy them again. I will stick with the Veet Wax Strips.

If I could, I wouldn't give this product even one star. I followed the instructions perfectly and I broke out with a big ugly rash around my mouth the next day. Three days later it's still there and hurts so bad I can't open my mouth. I thought this product would be good because I don't have sensitive skin and have never had a problem with salon wax, but clearly this was not the case. Would not recommend to anyone

I've been using these wax strips for almost 4 years now and I've never been disappointed! I love the Post-Treatment Soothing Azulene after and it makes my skin feel less irritated and it removes the access wax. The hair stays away for weeks and I don't have to worry about nicks, bump, in grown hairs or razor burn! I love this product and I will continue to use it and I recommend this to all my family and friends!

I hated this product. Yes it removed some hair but it's not worth the cost of money and pain. I read the directions before I even started and yet again when it removed 5 hairs and it still didn't work. It just left me in pain. I hate people seeing my private areas but I would rather go get it done then I would just this product. Don't waste your time.

I have used this product for 10 plus years and have never been disappointed! It effectively removes facial hair, and it does last a considerable amount of time. I use this product between salon appointments and find that it is better than some hot waxing I have gotten. I would definitely recommend this product.

I bought this and was I guess a little too excited. I needed to wax my eye brows so i did my right one and it was fine then i did my left one and cut the smallest strip in half and put it under my eyebrow and it pulled off half my eye brow. I was completely shocked and upset. I guess the strip which i thought was just on a few pieces of hair was on my whole eye brow.

I really like these wax strips. They are pretty effective with hair removal but it doesn't remove all of the hair. It does make tweezing the rest very easy though., I guess it loosens the rest of the remaining hair. I do recommended that you apply the oil right after. It helps get the rest of the wax off but I wouldn't leave it on. I've noticed it irritates my skin if I don't wash it off right away.

I just bought this for the first time and I love it! I tested it on my leg to see if it work and not only did it work but I didn't feel a thing. So I tried it on my upper lip, which is why I purchased them, and it worked wonderfully! I mean, it's the upper lip so I did feel it, but it was WAY LESS painful than a salon wax or tweeze/thread. So far no breakout or anything!!

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.
