So I tried waxing for the first time with this last night, and I love it! It was super messy, and there was some pain, but this gave me by far the best hair removal results I’ve ever had and I’d recommend it as long as you’re OK with those caveats!
I’ve posted about my hair removal struggles before… I’d really started to hate shaving my body hair, it does work for me, but I always inevitably end up with some leftover stubble and scratchiness, which only gets worse over the next few days. I was looking for alternatives and settled on waxing as it’s cheaper than an IPL and can give quick results.
This product caught my attention because it’s sold as a unisex hair removal method for thick hair, which I definitely need. I doubt a waxing kit made for normal female body hair would do the job for me!
You need to be really careful heating and applying the wax… it’s next to impossible to get off anything once it’s on there. The wipes that come in the box are great for getting wax residue off yourself, but I needed more to get the wax off everywhere else it went!
As for pain level, I found it really manageable. there is the sting when you initially rip off the strips, but that subsides quickly. my skin was tender for a while afterwards, and now 24 hours later, there’s still some redness but it feels pretty normal again…. except way smoother!
It took six paper strips and about half the container of wax to get my chest and armpits hair free… which was probably too much, there’s definitely a learning curve here.
The results really were amazing… this is the first time I can remember being free of both hair and stubble. Way, way, way better than shaving, and hopefully it lasts a while too.
Really the mess was the only bad part for me. I may buy the wax removal spray they have so I can use the rest of this kit without making my entire bathroom sticky. I may also try one of the products that have hair removal strips with the wax pre-applied. Those seem a lot cleaner.
