To Purr About:
- strips are convenient and easy-to-use
- no mess
- no chemical smell
- strips can be reused a couple of times depending on hair thickness/amount
- effective on even short hair
- no heating of wax required
- comes with 2 After Use moisturizing towelettes that help soothe and moisturize skin and also to remove residual wax
- scent is a little strong
- didn’t remove all the hair
- wish it came with a couple more of the After Use towelettes to remove residual wax
I’m not a regular waxer, but once in a while I’ll try it because I do prefer having my hair stay away longer. In the past I’ve found waxing at home to be messy, tedious and not worth the painful process, but I always see new products that claim to be improved and think to myself – with all the technological advancements, why couldn’t the process be improved from the last time I tried it?
Compared to my previous experiments with home waxing I do have to say this has been the best so far. The process is very easy and not messy. I love not having to heat this wax up with my stove or microwave and I love the convenience of not having to clean off any cloths used to pull the wax off my skin.
After using the wax strips my skin was super sticky & waxy so I was glad the product came with the After Use towelettes. They are great, but a bit oily, so I probably wouldn’t want to use them on my face. I really wish each package came with more than 2 After Use towelletes as I ran out. I think baby oil will work in removing the left over wax though.
Although the instructions mention the strips are 1 time use only, I did use them a few times with some success. I think it depends on the coarseness and quantity of body hair.
The Nair Ready-to-use Wax Strips didn`t remove all the hair in the area that I had placed the strip, but enough that I didn`t need to shave since my hair isn`t super coarse.
All-in-all I`m pretty happy with this product. I do wish waxing was a bit more affordable, but I suppose I`ve paid more for other beauty treatments. I would use this product again. It's a great time saver and very convenient.
