Fantastic product. It took a few times to figure out the best way to use it. I Used in on all of my pubic area (even though it said not to, it was fine) and not very painful at all. THE STRIPS ARE REUSABLE. I cut them into smaller pieces and wash them off when I am done, dry them, and reuse them next time. The key is the roll on the wax, immediately press the strip down firmly and rip back quickly. The longer you let the strip sit on your skin, the less hair it will remove. It took me many times to figure that out. but you should rip it off a seconds after you press it down. It is SO nice that the wax is water-soluble, it just dissolves away in warm water and doesn't leave any residue. It takes some practice but once you get it, it works great! I tried it on legs too which worked pretty well but I don't have very hairy legs. Armpits work great. Fantastic product.

Just the worst wax I have ever used. Let me start out by saying, I am not that hairy, and have very fine hair. This wax stays soft too long, and is a sticky mess. Very frustrating.

Ugh so I really wanted to love this product after reading all the good reviews about it. I bought it at Krogers for like 9.99$ and have been letting my leg hairs grow out for a while just so I could use this product(they were quite long,sick) I tried it this evening and I followed the instructions so carefully heated for 15 seconds pressed down and pulled off parallel to my leg. It did get quite a few long hairs but there were many left behind. So disappointed since I hate to shave. Im not sure what I did wrong since it seem to be working for others?

I use this product for my bikini area. I have been mostly successful with it, the consistency seems to get just right though I have had to re-heat it a few times during waxing. It's important to keep it at the right temperature. I think this wax is pretty easy to use, but I will admit that sometimes I do have to go back over an area.

I couldn't get the consistency right for it to actually remove hair. If it was too cool I couldn't get a thin enough layer, but if it was too warm it wouldn't grip the hair and would just leave my legs a slimy mess. The smell started off pleasant but overwhelmingly strong. After sitting in a cloud of perfume for ten minutes waiting for the 'wax' to cool enough to grip my hair the scent started to make me feel ill. I never got to the second leg, I just gave up and got into the shower to wash this junk off. I can't see the point in paying for this when normal waxing and sugaring is so incredibly cheap and actually removes hair.

It's great for beginners- I use it on my arms. The instructions are concise, and help you get the job done quickly. The package also says that you can use it for the bikini area, but I haven't tried that area.
Pros: Cheap, and easy enough to use successfully
Cons: Does not have nearly enough strips for the amount of wax in the container (I noticed some other reviews said they can be reused, but I haven't gotten that to work); so you may want to grab a package of waxing strips (I've found them at Sally Beauty for $2.99) to use after the nair ones have all been used.

Total waste of money. The wax took about a minute to heat up (not 15 seconds like it claims) and didn't grip my hair well enough to remove it from my legs. The wax smells good but it is messy! Also I went over the same area a few times to see if that would get out all of the hair so I ran out of strips before I even finished one leg. To be honest I'm pretty new to waxing but if this is the genral experience of it I'll just stick to shaving.

Ouch, Tried to wax my bikini for the first time with this stuff... The wax stays liquid at room temperature so it doesn't grip the hair well. Double ouch, I had to go over spots 2 to 3 times to get it completely clean.. redness takes overnight to go away... just not very fun at all. and is a sticky mess

I really wanted to like this product but it did nothing for me. The wax was never hot enough to be effective no matter how often i popped it back in the microwave. Waste of money.

this stuff is awful! its sticky and messy and it took me like 10 tries until it finally actually removed hair. & on top of that, i used it on my lower back and my lower back broke out awfully and was covered in acne! i have issues with acne on my face but my back has never broken out until i used this...its awful! DO NOT BUY THIS!

This stuff is a gooey mess that doesn't work. No matter what I tried to do differently, I couldn't get it to work.The "wax" doesn't come off cleanly and it hardly removes any hair. I suspect duct tape would work better than this stuff. In the end, I had a sticky mess and still had to contend with extra hair.

This stuff just sucks. Good price, pleasant smell, but I couldn't get it to work right to save my life. I know how to use waxing/sugaring products quite well too- apply thin layer, apply the strip, pull skin taut, and RIP. Done the drill plenty of times. No dice with this stuff- it got a few hairs but left big patches of hair & wax behind. I tried it on my eyebrows & it left literally HALF the hairs behind. I still had to pluck them afterwards. I could have gotten better results from sticking a piece of chewed gum on my brow & ripping it off. It was so damn sticky too! It felt like I was smearing pure honey on my skin. FAIL. This is going right back to the store.

I love this Nair product! It's the only microwave wax kit I buy although it can be hard to find sometimes. It smells so good and it comes with plenty of strips that you can cut into smaller pieces in case you wax your bikini area. You can also reuse the strips by running them under hot water and letting them air dry. My only problem would be the wax gets cold rather quickly so that I have to keep reheating it but other then that it works great for me!

This removes hair without too much mess. The product comes with a generous amount of strips and smells nice and "peachy," pun intended. Wax is dissoluble with water.

Ripped off the top layer of the skin on my calf. It was bright red for awhile. My god it looked awful and hurt. Thankfully I used a vaseline oil gel and it didnt scar. But it was frightning! I will never use this again. Plus it doesnt smell very good. Too much perfume. Never again!

Good product compared to other Nair waxes that are a pain to clean up. This is so much easier to apply (as long as it's hot) and easier to clean up. I love the ingredients and the sugary smell. Made my skin soft but a bit bruised in the spots that I put too much wax on (make sure you put a THIN layer of wax on). The only other bad thing is that stupid spatula and the wax loses heat very quickly- I had to keep reheating it.

It didn't work for me. I couldn't remove even 1 hair from my body. To the trash can.

Tried the 15 second microwave wax on my legs. This was my first time home waxing and overall, the product worked pretty well. The smell is nice, fruity and kinda soapy. Very little pain as long as you pull the strip off fast. It didn't remove all the hair; i had to go back a couple times and re-wax the same area. And there are still some strays! Another downside is that weird waved spatula....a bit difficult to handle. Super easy to clean up. I kept a wet washcloth next to me and used it to wipe off any wax that was left on my legs or got on my fingers. I love that you can reuse the strips....even though I went through most of the tub just on my legs, I'm keeping the strips to use another time. No sure if I'll buy this again. I think I'll try out some others before I stick with one brand.

I was scared at first, but this didn't hurt one bit and it works great! So easy and the smell is fine. I didn't know the strips were reusable, next time. The trick is to heat it properly and apply a very thin layer. I did my bikini area in less than 10 minutes. I tried it above my lip but I think I had allowed the wax to cool down too much. I will try again tomorrow.
This sure beats making an appointment and having the lady make me feel like a freak by telling me how stubborn my hair is. Then she charges me extra. Her greediness turned me onto this wonderful alternative. Any time I take charge and voila, I'm hairless.

Waxing hurts in general and this isnt bad at all. I use it when (my parents are being evil and won't fund my neccesities)I cant go to my waxer. It doesnt get every hair, and yes it hurts as does waxing in general. Its easy to clean up and the peach smell isn't bad. Set aside an hour or so and you can be reasonably hairless by the end.
