I have used sugar wax just once before and it was ineffective, painful, and messy. Normally I shave but I have been re-evaluating my beauty choices because I care about the environment and how much waste I produce. Sugaring appeals to be because it can be cheap (if you make it yourself) and it is biodegradable. I bought this kit for $10 as a treat to myself to see if I could get into sugaring and make it work this time. Unfortunately it was ridiculously painful, completely ineffective and messy. I don't think it is the product's fault. Maybe my hairs weren't long enough or my technique wasn't good.
Even though I didn't like it, I am giving the product 4 lippies because I like Shea Moisture's product line. The ingredient list is clean. It smells nice. I think it is worth a try but you need to realize what you are getting into.
Some tips: run the jar under hot water if you can't get it open, heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften the wax if necessary, and you can wash the strips to re-use them. Also check out the videos on sugaring on youtube.
