I am so glad that I decided to try this product! I used to use the Sally Hansen Extra Strength All Over Body wax but now I will only purchase Moom from now on! I already had the strips left over from the Sally Hansen so I decided to purchase the 2-pack refills since it would give me more product. The price is more expensive than other waxes for a small jar but it really is not that expensive and I am willing to pay more for the better product with better ingredients.
I went ahead and used Moom to wax my upperlip and give myself a brazillian. I was surprised that it actually hurt less than regular waxes. The product was a bit hard to spread and I didn't want to microwave it more because I did not want to overheat it. I had more success with the brazilian than my upperlips. There were many fine hairs left on my upperlips but I believe that was because I spread the product too thick. I will update this review after I try again next time. The jar may seem small but this little jar will last you a LONG LONG time! I did my entire bikini area and upper lips but the jar I used still looks brand new.
I really like this product. I've always hated the mess of the traditional waxes and loved the fact that this product just wipes off with some water. I wholeheartedly recommend it and will be repurchasing.
I tried waxing my upperlips again and this time, I made sure to spread it very thin. Unfortunately, Moom failed again and I guess I will have to purchase a traditional wax for this job. I am still in love with this product, however! It's been about 2 weeks since the brazilian and I am STILL smooth down there! All other times I waxed down there, I got hair growing back within a week! Very impressed.

The only experience I've ever had with waxing is Nad's years ago and frankly, I wasn't impressed. Ineffective, messy, and time consuming compared to just using a razor.
Then I decided to try Moom since I've read that sugaring is less painful and messy. After a bit of trial and error I think this is great! It's fairly quick and easy to clean up after but I've found that just rinsing it off the skin doesn't work. Expect some nasty breakouts if you don't use a cleanser. The pain is non-existent.

I have thick, dark, stubborn hair. It does not come up easily. I have never tried "sugaring" before because I did't think it would ever work. I was wrong.
Not only did it completley remove the hair but it did so with half the pain of traditional waxing! My skin was not even red! Smoothest results I have ever experienced. Normally, I have a few errand hairs left behind and the skin is so irrated that I don't want to go over it again. I didn't have to worry about this with Moom's.
Also noteworthy is how easy it was to remove. I just washes off. No oil necessary. It is so clean!
I put it in the microwave for 5 seconds. The directions say not to do this but I though it was an easier application although probably unecessary. The strips also claim to be reusable-just wash them.
Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of my Nads???

I have used several sugaring products and have even made my own but I really like this. Sugar is so much better than wax and to me, even though I am ripping hair off, it hurts less.
It is very nice that you can re-use the strips and Moom very efficiently removes hair. I have had trouble with break-outs a few days after using wax because I think the sometimes the residue sticks onto my face and blocks pores. This rinses over easily and if you spill it - no biggie. I spilled a pot full of melted wax once and THAT was a real mess. Having a little sugar to wipe up is much easier in comparison. Good product and I will buy it again.

initial reactions. i tried it first on my chin to get some stray hairs off. didnt work. next i wanted to try it on my bikini line. didnt work. i figured the hairs might be too long for it to work so i trimmed them down. didnt work. it got a few hairs off, but hardly any compared to how many i have. not worth it. good concept, didnt remove hair well enough for my liking. i tried it based on all the reviews here but didnt work for me. i followed the directions

I LOVE this stuff. I could never wax because I had horrible reactions to it but moom is amazing. Organic, gentle and effective. It is super easy to use and leaves my skin nice and smooth. I love the fact that you can just wipe away moom with water if you mess up. Also, the strips are reusable and thus, environmentally friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who has given up on waxing as well as those who currently use a different wax. Give moom a try, you will not be sorry!

Originally I bought Moom for use on my bikini area, but once I got going, I couldn't stop! I've gone to a salon to get a brazilian wax twice, and both times were painful, expensive, and gave quite the ugly result. Moom is so much more gentle on the skin, to the point where I barely twinge when making my ZIP! Skin only stays red for a few minutes, and all coarse hairs that are long enough are gone-zo. Then it's just a swipe of a wet washcloth away from heading out the door! Clean up is a breeze, and this is coming from a girl who had regular wax stuck to her shins for days and days after a prior attempt went wrong.
I've also tried it on my legs and upper lip. It does make my legs smooth, but misses many of the finer hairs. Same with the upper lip-- I stick with hard wax for that!

This stuff is THE BEST. Seriously! I was always afraid of waxing my eyebrows at home because it just seemed so fussy and difficult - getting the wax just right, applying it just right, removing excess wax with oil, etc. MOOM has been my first and only product for eyebrow waxing, and I don't see myself ever trying anything else.
I only use this to wax my eyebrows, not anywhere else. As an eyebrow wax kit, this will last you forever and ever...even if you're clumsy and scatter-brained, like me. I dropped the glass jar on my bathroom floor and it broke. I managed to salvage some glass-free wax in the bottom of the jar and depot it into a plastic jar I had laying around (which is not a bad idea even if your glass jar is still intact), so I actually have only around 1/10 of the product left, but 6 months later I've barely used any of it. It comes with several eyebrow-sized cloth strips, but you can easily cut the larger strips it comes with if you lose the smaller strips (like I did!)
Steps I take to use MOOM on my eyebrows:
1) Wash my eyebrow area with a fairly strong cleanser to get all the oils off, as if the area is too oily, the wax won't work as well. I do this first to let it dry completely before I'm ready to apply it (again, moisture = impossible to wax.)
2) Warm it up. When I bought MOOM, I didn't even have a microwave, so I never warmed it up. The instructions for eyebrow waxing say it's not necessarily, and it WILL work without warming, but it's very difficult to spread...so if you have a microwave or the patience to warm it up through other means, do so. I pop my little plastic jar in the microwave for 7 seconds and the wax becomes perfectly warm.
3) Spread the wax LIGHTLY over your eyebrows in the direction of the hair growth. If the MOOM is too thick, it won't work. If you have any doubts about the placement of the wax, wash it off - I learned that the hard way, too!
4) Tamp down the cloth in the direction of the hair growth. I believe the instructions (which I lost a long time ago) say not to press down too hard, but I find pressing it down firmly to be the best way to go about it.
5) Hold skin taut and rip very quickly against the direction of hair growth.
6) Marvel at how much hair is on the cloth.

Moom is the best for sugaring. It can be used in difficult/sensitive areas because if you don't get it all on the first zip, it washes off easily unlike hard waxes. I usually use this in combination with Parissa Hot Wax for more "taut" areas, but MOOM has been my go-to Brazilian. Very good soothing wax. I melt it in my microwave for 15 seconds, give or take another 8 depending on how full the jar is, and mix it up with a popsicle stick until it spreads like honey. You have to pull quickly though; the hair will not come off with a slow pull. Has to be a ZIP!
Packaging could be better. I like that you can microwave it, but an inherently sticky substance does not bode well with twist-on lids. I never put the lid back on though or it won't come off! I just lightly top it with a muslin strip instead until the next use. One jar tends to last me about 6 months.

I have tried numerous at home waxing products over the years they either did not remove hair or removed some hair along with skin and/or left red rashy pimples. I tried another product-- again. Finally, a product that works. Used on my upper lip and betwen brows, took off all the hair, no skin, no pain, no pimples and no sticky after mess. amazing.

It's seems I'm constantly searching for a good home waxing product since manufacturers always seem to be discontinuing the ones I like.
Bought this on a whim from Drugstore.com a year back, and it's jut right. Effective, easy to use and cleanup is a breeze. I'm still using the original muslin strips, just buy refills now.
It's a sugaring product, btw. But works better than Gigi hard wax in a warmer.

I have a MOOM lavendar-based waxing kit for sensitive skin, which included a dozen large strips and half a dozen small (face) strips. The product is marketed as organic and all-natural, and I do detect a difference with MOOM compared to the other (harsher) home-based waxing kits I have tried. Overall I find it effective, easy to use, and relatively inexpensive.(I bought it on sale, which is how I came across it to begin with). I would buy this again.

I stopped using NADS on my calves because the ingredients proved to be drying. I tried this product about six months ago, and I like it a lot. The jar is glass so one has to be careful with it. I need to warm the honey-colored goop in the microwave very gradually and then stir it. Application is easy, and the fabric strips provided work very well. It is a fairly quick process and the ingredients soothe the skin. I do not have a huge amount of calf hair to remove, but as time goes by and I use this product, there is less and less to pull out. Fairly painless too, and I appreciate the simplicity of the ingredients.
I took off a lippie because I would like to buy a larger jar; now I buy whenever it is on sale at drugstore.com, and I will re-purchase the refills in amounts of two. One jar lasts 3-4 times, depending on the hair growth (more in summer). I hope this product stays on the market because it is a good one.

After many attempts at waxing at home, I found this product to be the best I've used. The natural ingredients make the process a lot less messy, sticky and my skin has had a much lesser reaction with no bumps and rash. I would definitely buy again. The ability to buy only the wax again since the strips are re-usable make it an even better product! Highly recommeneded.

I used to get my eyebrows waxed at a nice salon near my house, but I would always end up with bright red skin and bumps around my eyebrows the next day. The redness was so bad one time that some random dude in a bookstore said to me "wow, you must have forgot to put sunscreen around your eyes!". Errr, yeah, that's it. In my effort to purge my cosmetics and skincare routine of gnarly chemicals, I came across this kit, in lavender, at my local Whole Foods. It was not the cheapest, like $20, but I loved the list of ingredients. It simply read: sugar, lemon juice, chamomile, lavender, and water. And most of those are organic too! So, I snatched the kit up, cut some of the small fabric strips into smaller sizes and waxed my eyebrows myself. And surprise, after an hour all traces of redness were gone and the actual waxing didn't even hurt! The next day my skin showed no signs of waxing at all. So, I got braver and decided to try a bikini wax on myself. I will likely never be brave enough to go to a salon and get a bikini wax, and there's no reason to! It doesn't really hurt or ache, the wax is easily removable with a damp cloth, the strips will last for years. This stuff is a great buy and I love that it's natural and as painless as waxing can get! There are some things that can be a little tricky about this stuff- 1) getting the wax at the right temperature. It needs to be like honey, I usually put it in the microwave for 13 seconds and then stir it and check the consistency. If it's too liquid-y, this will burn your skin, so be careful! It should just be pleasantly warm when you spread it on your skin. 2) spread this stuff thin on your skin. This makes sense, it's easier for the hair to stick to the cloth. 3) I would recommend using Moom on coarse hair only. I wouldn't bother using this on my legs, I don't think the hair there is coarse enough. This stuff is perfect for anyone who thinks their skin is too sensitive for waxing or that waxing is too painful!

I have used 3 of Sally Hansen's waxing kit products with horrible results so this time I carefully researched before I bought another waxing product. I had read many wonderful reviews about the product so I bought it in rose extract and tried it. It works wonders! It hardly hurts, the strips are washable, it smells lovely, the sugar wax easly washes off our body with water and it removes most hairs! I love it! The only 2 downfalls is that it doesnt remove light hairs, only thick/coarse hairs and the jar is small. I dont use it on my legs because it takes too much time and my leg hairs grow back quick anyway. I only use it on my bikini area and pubic region but it hardly hurts and my hair doesnt grow back for about 2 wks. I have used this 4 times and i still have a little less than half the jar left. This product is wonderful!

I think this stuff is the best home based hair remover you can buy. I used to live in a big city and got regular professional bikini waxes, but I've relocated to a very small, rural area and it's not very convenient to get professional treatments. I tried this stuff just trying to find something that I might be able to work with at home and I just love it. In fact, I think my home based waxes are better than my previous professional jobs! This stuff is so gentle - meaning it does not irritate my skin at all and the redness is not near as bad as regular wax. Also, the fact that it's water soluable is just awesome. Didn't like where you put it, use a wet washcloth and wipe it off and start over. The muslim strips are reusable over and over again so it's economical b/c I don't have to buy the kit every time, just the refill. I have really sensitive skin and nothing is as gentle as this stuff. Great find!

I find using this product to be very similar in to standard hot waxing. I don't think it removes the hair QUITE as well as regular wax that gets much harder, but it still does a really good job. More importantly for me, however, it takes away all the mess and margin of error as traditional waxing. If you make a mistake in your application, you can simply wash it off and start again. Drop a big glob on your vanity? Just wash it off with warm water. Tired of cutting/buying tons of muslin strips? The ones that come with this can be washed and reused. In addition, it doesnt leave me quite as red as regular wax.

After using this wonderful product, I will never go back to painful waxing! This is easy to use and easy to clean up, unlike wax which hardens and is hard to remove if you drip some. This is much less painful than waxing. I am able to do my bikini area in no time with minimial irritation. For best results, Moom has to be at the right temperature. If you over heat it, it will not work and you will burn yourself. It needs to be the consistency of warm honey. Apply it thinly and gently rub the muslin strip in the direction of hair growth. Holding skin taut, quickly remove it in the opposite direction of hair growth. Clean up is a breeze. I just soak the muslin strips in warm soapy water and the moom dissolves. A quick shower washes off any moom residue on my skin.

This did not work for me. It is similar to waxing except it's with sugar and other natural ingredients. To be fair, I have never been able to get any waxing treatment to work for me. They always end up tearing off my skin and leaving the hair intact. I follow all the directions precisely ... follow direction of hair growth to apply sugar, tear off parallel in opposite direction of growth .... I swear I am following the directions precisely! It's so infuriating. Then I am left with a weepy, red skin rash in patches on my upper lip where the top layer of skin was ripped off. I thought because this MOOM remover was made with natural, gentle ingredients it might adhere to the hair or otherwise work better. Ummmm, no. The MOOM hair remover was gentler on my skin, and did not tear my skin off like other waxes have, which is a very, very good thing. But the MOOM also didn't remove any hair either. And that's the whole reason I bought it ... to remove the hair. Oh well. If you're someone who waxes, and waxing seems to work for you, then go ahead and try this as it's gentle on the skin and you may really like it. But for the life of me, I just can't get it to work for me.
