Might be OK for face but NOT for legs. It will take you 3 years.

Bought these for my Tween daughter to experiment with leg waxing (a leg wax here is 20 - 25 plus tip) but the strips are so small. Meant for face - maybe bikini or underarm but if you have coarse hair this won't cut it.

Cheap and easy to use and relatively benign.
Comes with a teeny bottle of Azulene oil which our family dog promptly ate. Yuck.

Good in a pinch but no HG.

SO glad I discovered this product for my facial hair. I tried the various waxes in a microwaveable jar, with and without strips, and they were economical but too messy. (Also tried a stinky chemical product - once.) This product is neat and has no waste. It is very easy to use. As directed, I heat the strips between the palms of my hand. I do need to use tweezers for the coarse hairs on my chinny-chin-chin (LOL) but there aren't many to worry about.

As with all other wax products, it irritates my skin, so I wash with soap and warm water to remove any residual wax, then apply generic hydrocortisone cream with aloe. This works better than the azulene oil for redness. If this is not enough, you can follow up with ice, but I never need that extra step.

Adore this stuff. Sometimes have to go back over it to grab some of the hair. I mainly use it for my upper lip. I heat the strip up with my hairdryer and wax away. Leave my skin red but as long as I wash my face afterwards, the redness goes away in about an hour and no little white heads. Very effective. Hair has been coming in lighter and finer. Price is excellent. Way cheaper than going to the salon.

I prefer wax strips to microwavable wax. I love the convenience though microwavable wax does a better job at getting rid of hair. This product gets rid of hair well. It hurts a lot though. I feel it hurts more than Veet strips. The upside is this strip has longer shelf life than Veet strip. The veet one will become useless if you left it sitting in the bottom drawer too long. Sally Hansen will remain useful even if it has been sitting in the bottom drawer all winter.

I'll just come right out and say it - I have a very hairy face. Peach fuzz galore. It's not dark, but it's not exactly short and it can be noticable in certain types of light.
This is the first wax product I have used on my face (aside from a few eyebrow waxes at salons). I only waxed my upper lips, a small spot on my jawline, and a small spot on my cheek, just to see how my skin would react before waxing any further. It wasn't too painful, it was very effective at removing all of the hairs, and the finishing oil left my skin feeling very soft.
HOWEVER... it irritated my skin and I experienced some minor itching. It left me with a few blotchy red spots that were slightly raised and a bit flakey. They gradually went away over the course of about a week. I have since read some tips on waxing, and will use a bit of powder to keep the wax from adhering too much to my skin the next time I try these strips.

Perfect! No need to use anything else. Considering I have very sensitive skin, only product that works for me.

I use these for regularly for my bikini area and they're ok; the reason I keep buying is because they're cheap and there's no mess. They're not the BEST-- it sometimes takes a few strips to remove the hair completely, but I figure the ease of use makes up for that. Pulling the strip off immediately after smoothing it down seems to help. I can't rave about these, but they're easy to use if you're new to at home waxing.

So the bf wants me to wax his armpits. Lol kden.

I didn't wanna use my hard wax because that needs to be heated up in the microwave and I dunno if his mother would be ok with me waxing her son. :P (I'm 17, he's 16)

So we went to Wal-Mart to get some waxing stripa. I was originally looking for the Veet ones but settled upon this one.

Just tested it out on my legs and HOT DAMN these work well! Only problem is the wax strips are huge but the finishing oil is so TINY!

I swear. I'm scared to use it :/

I guess I'll have to find a substitue.......


I'll let you know how the bf likes it later too! :P

Just picked these up the other night because I needed to wax my upper lip. I had been using a jar that you heated up in the microwave and then put the hot wax on the hair but I ran out. First of all, this product is ah-mazing for upper lip hair (which that's all I have problems with). I used my blow dryer on its hottest setting and warmed it up quickly, then pulled apart the strip (all you need is one, there is wax on both sides) and put it on my upper lip and pushed down so the wax would grab my hairs. I closed my eyes, and ripped it off as fast as I could (in the opposite direction of course.) Every single hair came out! My lip upper lip is a smooth as freshly shaved legs (if you know what I mean.) I love this product sooo much! You have to go buy it, it's awesome!
