This is absolutely the BEST wax I've ever used! Pulls even the tiniest hairs out!! Would recommend this to everyone! Amazing.

I've been using the yellow tub for 4 years now, works well for bikini lines and upper lip hairs however since waxing makes your hair thin it doesn't work that well on my underarms anymore. And the wax never grabbed the hairs on my legs, mind you I have very thin blonde hairs to begin with.
If you have thicker hair this is fantastic.

I'd been going to the spa for my upper lip and eyebrow waxes once a month ($28), when my friend recommended I try this. At first, I was scared to pull the wax off myself, but I have to say, it really doesn't hurt! The redness goes down much faster than at the spa, and for $10-15, it's so much easier on the budget. It lasted me about 4 months, as I was testing it on other areas. I would definitely recommend this over a spa wax. The one downside was how big the stick was; I ended up using cleaned popsicle sticks to get the small areas!

Okay, I know there are tonnes of negative reviews for this, but let me tell you how I made this work for me and why I will re-purchase again and again ($15). The tub is huge and lasts me 4-5 months. I absolutely hate dealing with strips, any strip-free wax is hassle free and effective (parissa's strip free wax is also very good - try that!).
Effectiveness: I use this on my chin, arms, neck, upper lip (coarse/dark brown girl problems, ugh) and this takes off every single hair and leaves it incredibly smooth.
Purchase baby oil or post wax oil! this will save your life. it'll remove any residue off your hands, or body.
Mess: This is extremely 'waxy' and stringy. But you have to warm it up to the best consistency to limit the stringyness. It is very frustrating when you have a string of wax following every spatula dip into the product. The key is to be really fast, once you dip the spatula into the tub, wipe the excess product off the sides and quickly pull up. The faster you get at bettering the 'tub to skin' process, the less stringy mess you have to deal with.
Warming up: Microwaveable -- I find I need to only put this in for 2 minutes and it does the trick, however you have to follow the box instructions to get the best consistency! otherwise it'll burn or turn very stringy.
Packaging: I wish wish wish this came with a cover/lid. When the wax hardens I put it back into the box it came with.
Overall, I'll purchase this over n over again until I can find a better strip free wax that does the trick. You just have to use this properly to get the results you want.

I bought this in the purple package. Where do I begin? This was a huge mess. It got everywhere and was almost impossible to wash off..but that's not the worst of this product.
This removed barely any hair! And the stripless idea proved to be pointless. Instead of convenience it only made the process longer and messier. The only good thing about this product was the smell..which I really had the pleasure of smelling since the wax took forever to wash off. I ended up throwing this in the trash. What a waste :(
sticking to waxing strips and sugar wax.

Despite the negative reviews I decided to give it a try - since it was on sale at the local drug store (shoppers).
As other reviews say - once you start applying it leaves strings attaching where you applied to were the stick goes. I ended up in a horrible mess. Plus, I had to knock the tub of wax over the washroom floor.
However, I did manage to wax both my underarms. As other reviews say, it does leave some of the shorter hairs.
I will not repurchase again - just gonna stick with strips.

I love getting waxed for the long lasting results, but the price and time it takes I thought I would give DIY home waxing a try. I purchased Tahitian Gardenia for $15 on an impulsive buy as I was intrigued by the concepts of this product being microwavable and not requiring strips.
Overall the only thing I actually liked about this product was the scent. It was quite pleasant and not over powering. The product itself was stringy and messy during application. It also didn't pull out hair effectively. I found myself reapplying and going over areas and eventually I just gave up. Also the towelettes that are included in the package are useless in removing leftover wax/residue.
Will not repurchase.

This is a review for Nair Cire divine no strip wax for legs and body (sensual berries fragrance). I will not be repurchasing this product because it only removes maybe half the hairs I apply it over. I find myself re-doing the same area 2-3 times. It does not grab the shorter hairs on my thighs even though the box states clearly "effective even on short hairs". I've tried using thicker and thinner layers of wax, waiting longer for the wax to cool, etc and I still can't get the wax to grab all the hairs. I can't imagine anyone having the patience to wear long pants all summer just so they can grow leg hairs long enough for this wax to be effective.

I really love this product.
The packaging is a bit annoying, and like all wax kits you NEVER get enough of the towelletes or anything, but wax wise it definately does its job :)
I use it on my bikini line, legs and underarms and it works first time
everytime and gets almost all if not all of the hairs out, even the really short ones! I usually put a bit of baby powder or oil on my skin first so that it doesn't grab so much and doesn't leave any wax on my skin. It has a nice smell to it and it's easy to use. Only complaint is that the packaging is a bit annoying, its just an open tub that sits in a box. The sides of the tub always harden up so you have to put the tub in the microwave for longer to melt that part which means that you have to let it sit for a while to cool down enough for you to be able to use it.
Other than that there is nothing wrong with it :) It's literally salon quality wax. 5 stars for me :)

I've been waxing for about 2 years on and off. So I'm not new to the process at all. The prep for this wax is pretty easy, heat it up, stir it, wait till it's all nice and creamy and not burning hot. I noticed right away that no matter how smooth the center of my tub was, the sides would not melt. After coming to terms with that, I got down to business waxing my lower legs. The wax went on okay, and I liked the fact that I could control where and how much I used. When I went to pull of the wax, I noticed that it only removed hair on half of the area it was spread. It would not pull hair off the top section of the covered area, but not the top. There ended up being a lot of hair that would not come off. And there wasn't enough wax in the tub to even try other areas. I am definetly not buying this again, still on the hunt for the perfect waxing solution.

I started buying this product a couple of month ago and i have to say i am sticking with it. it grabs all the hair, even really short ones. i use it only for the under-arms and bikini area and don't understand how anybody would using any kind on stripless wax for legs. it just doesn't work, ever! so, anyway, i am really happy with this product and will keep buying it. it is a bit messy, but the results are worth a little clean up. i also recomend to apply some baby oil before waxing, so you won't have any wax stucked to the skin.

I bought this on the recommendation of a friend. I bought the body version, a fairly large tub, and was told I would get several uses out of it, considering I would only use it to remove hair off my arms. I don't have a lot of growth there, and the hair is soft and easy to remove using a cream, but it's dark, and I wanted a form of hair removal that would last longer.
The instructions are to heat this up in the microwave for a few minutes, and then let it sit for a few minutes. A plastic temperature reader is inserted into the middle of the wax to show you if it's too hot or ready for use. I found the scent strong and awful - I got the tropical version - and was really not looking forward to applying it and having to put up with the smell.
But I would withstand the smell if the product were to work well. Unfortunately, it didn't. Even on my arm hair, which is so incredibly fine, the wax didn't pull off all of it. And I'm not a waxing newbie. What I did like was that it wasn't painful, as it didn't grab my skin, just the hair.
I'll continue to use cream epilators. I really can't see this working very well on tougher, thicker hair, like on legs, underarm and bikini, if it barely worked on fine, easy-to-remove hair.

I've tried both the wax for the body and the face and neither are good products. It is difficult to heat the wax to the appropriate state for application. By the time it has cooled down for use, it is stringy, difficult and messy to apply. It also doesn't pull out hair effectively. The temperature stick is useless and the time printed on the instruction sheet is misleading. Also, the post-wax toilettes are huge, overly moist for the face, and too oily for my skin. The biggest factor that attracted me to this product was it is microwaveable, compared to the other stripeless waxes that require heating on the stove however, I'm sure there are better products for sale than this one.

I have this no-strip wax in Tahitian Gardenia. You have to heat it and use a flat popsicle stick looking thing to spread it on your body and wait for it to harden and pull off. It does an ok job on longer hair but leaves behind short hairs. This is just OK for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Like everyone else said, it is time consuming. I had real issues the first time I used it -it got barely any hair off of my legs. It did a really great job on my underarms and bikini, though. I don't suggest you use it for large areas, like your legs. It takes way too much time and leaves hair behind.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
This wax smells ok but most importantly grabs on to hair really well. I tend to wax my underarms even when the hair is short. Sometimes you might have to put some talc on if the wax doesn’t seem to grab on well. It could simply be because your perspiring also make sure to wash the area and dry it before waxing. The towelettes are not so good for removing the wax bits (sometimes you get left over) you should just use some baby oil.

I found that this wax melts very quickly, and gets very hot, however, it does cool quickly and you need to reheat. It does grab hair very well though! but little pieces of wax stick to you, and the towlettes that are included in the package dont do much, baby oil works much better. I found that i have been hairless longer after using this kit than i have been with other at home kits.

I have always used body sugars, and thought that a no-strip wax would be more convenient.
As someone said above, it takes a lot more time than specified in the instructions to heat the product up. Then, after application, you must wait for it to harden completely, which can take 30-60 seconds. You also can only wax in small sections, so your legs will take a good 45 mins to do completely. It doesn't remove all the hairs, and your skin is covered in little bits of wax.
To get a grip on the wax, you have to painstakingly lift it up from the hair, which feels akin to removing a bandage.
Not a waste of money, but not something I will purchase again.
I'm sticking with Nads

I wouldn't want to use this on my legs because it does dry/cool too quickly to spread over a large area. It also does take longer to microwave than the package says.
The good thing about it is that unlike Nads or the Parissa wax strips, it gets ALL of the hair. I use this on my face and bikini line because it's quick and it works even on the peach fuzz on my upper lip. The price isn't awful either.

it's soo hard and time consuming to use. after putting it in the microwave, i gotta wait for it to cool down or else i burn myself. by the time it cools down i gotta hurry up and wax as much as i can before it dries up and hardens.
it does not get short hair and if i apply it too thin, it doesnt pull off completely.
i dont get how after u apply the wax, u wait for it to harden, but when you lift the edge, your pulling out hair which fucking hurts.
i only use this for my under arm and bikini line. ive tried my legs, and it just takes way too fucking long. i wanted to love this product, but hell nah.
oh and i re use the wax. i only wax myself with it, so after im done i put it back in the wax and re use it. heating it up kills off any bacteria in the wax.. thats a good thing... blah
