Must Read! Hints and tricks!!!
By Simon Mall
This might be the same stuff that major brand name salons use aka. this is the best wax you could possibly buy and you could use it on anything, just dont use it on your face if you have very sensitive skin. the trick to using this is do things slow and neatly when you first start and get comfortable using it. you should not have any wax left over to pick off your nails or skin if you do it this way. your hair should be 1/4 inch long to do this (grain of rice). If this is the first time you are doing a bikini wax go to a professional the first time and make sure they use hard stripless wax just like this one. clean your skin with mild soap and warm (never hot water before or after—take a shower if you must) and make sure you are completely dry. apply either baby oil (very little) OR baby powder (and brush off excess) to your skin and start by dipping the wooden spatula and lift it and swirl it around, DO NOT thin it out, you need a layer about 1-2 mm thick. it should be about 2incesx4inches. wait about 10-20 seconds and lightly tap it with your finger at the thickest point, if it is still gooey and lifts up let it set just a little longer, press the wax down with your palm, “flick” the bottom of the strip hold your skin taught (from the top) and pull quickly going in the opposite direction of your hair growth (from the bottom). quickly apply pressure to that spot for a few seconds. repeat… once you get the hang of it, you will be able to use slightly thinner strips but beware if you thin it out too much or let it try to much it will become brittle and will hurt to remove it and you will be left with a mess. you need to pull it off when it is still SOFT just not liquidy. when you are finished, use a damp warm/hot towel to wipe down your skin and then follow with a cold towel to close your pores. you could apply No Bump or something to prevent ingrown hairs and keep your skin soft. Remember!!! If you don’t get all of the wax of or leave even the smallest drop on your skin you should remove it right away instead of waiting until you finish the whole area. it will be harder to take off if you wait and will be uncomfortable when you get dressed (fibers will stick and you will have dark little blotches). DO NOT take a hot shower or go swimming for at least 4 hours later, no matter what kind of skin you have!!! Use very mild soap and luke warm water if you must. You could use an oil or lotion that has azulene to calm your skin and use No bump or Tend Skin (the best) to prevent ingrown hairs. if you are going to wax your arm pits you might need a friend to help hold your skin taught or pull (it hurts much less when you hold your skin taught). I hope this helps!!

I just recieved this today with the warmer I bought and didn’t even hesitate to start heating it up. I never must have given much thought to what I was about to do – a self-brazilian wax- but one hour later I was completely hair free. This stuff worked SO awesome. I have been getting professionally waxed at the salon for a year now, and doing it myself was the best decision ever. I did a much better job than any professional has done, and I even waxed one of my friends today, too.
The good thing about hard wax is that it hurts MUCH MUCH less than sugar sticky type wax with strips. It doesn’t pull off any of your skin and gets the hair right down to the follicle without ripping it at the skin like strip-waxing does.
Buy this stuff. Really. Make sure you get a warmer and spatulas too, or else you will be S.O.L.

Not easy to use
I bought this item after reading the reviews. It is a good item but needs a lot of patience while using.
1) Since this is used without a strip, the wax layer that u apply on the skin should be thick enough to be pulled. if the layer applied is thin, the wax will not pull off the body and will remain stuck there…..and as per the instructions, it requires a wax pull off lotion which is not supplied with the box. Since i was using it for the first time, i had a rough time removing the wax from my body as i wasnt aware of the thickness of the wax to be required to be pulled.
2) The wax dries off fast while applying, so could do it in small patches which took a lot of time to complete.
The only good thing about this wax is that while pulling the layer, it doesn’t hurt much.
So if you plan to buy this one, don buy it alone. Buy it with the set that has the lotion and spatulas (this is very much required because if u use ur knife…u will just have to throw that).
