The box i got was smaller... it came with 20strips i think and i got it at walmart for under $6. I think this wax is OK. It did a great job removing my arm hairs (I have very fine hairs on my arms but i like them to be hairless :)). However, it only did a mediocre job on removing my leg hair. It probably only removed like 1/3 of my total leg hair. The hair on my legs aren't that coarse but this wax did a poor job in removing them. Not sure if i would repurchase this... I might just stick with the Veet strips instead since they are cheaper and work better.

one word: AMAZING. I am an entire body waxer. I spend a bloody fortune (and no, I'm not english- you can sub whatever word you want for bloody) each month on waxing.
My bottom legs, pits, and brows, grow sickeningly fast, thus making its a necessity to get it done every two weeks in those areas. Not waxing is not an option for me, as I get that "5 o'clock" shadow on my pits and legs, and I also feel dirty with any body hair on my body.
But I digress. I picked these suckers up on a whim- I was actually gunning for the bliss waxing set, based on the reviews on this board and almost didn't get these strips, based on the board.
I used them just last night. I did what the directions said, placed them on one arm pit- and at first try took almost ever single hair off, cleanly. My other arm took a bit more work and some plucking, because the hair grew in three different directions.
I'll admit my hair is a bit sparser due to the frequent waxing, but these actually work, and work well. Run down to walmart, cvs, and a host of other places to get these!!

What a horrid product, there were so many things wrong with it. I will say that the flexibility is very good but, the wax seems to stick on one side, no matter how much you warmed them up. Let's just say I even put it in the microwave for a good 30 sec. And the wax still stood on one side! When I finally got both sides off and put the wax on my legs, I followed the directions step by step. I was quick enough to take it off but I was left with the fabric in my hand staring down helplessly at the now stuck and dried wax on my leg. It truly was the most absurd thing I've seen while waxing. The one reason I brought this product was because I had used their facial strips, and they worked wonderfully. Plus with my skin razors aren't an option. But of course curiosity grew and I wanted to give the other products a go...which was probably the worst and most painful mistake I have done. The soothing and finishing wipes left my skin irritated, so if you have sensitive skin don't use those wipes. Never again would I buy these wax strips!

Awful product. I normally use a wax warmer and muslin strips to wax my legs. It is messy and somewhat time consuming, but I get like 99% of the hair removed the 1st time.
I saw these Nads strips at Target on sale, saw they were some Australian product "winner", they were not expensive...so I bought them.
I used them last night. They maybe removed 60-75% of my leg hair. My hair was ready to be waxed too, as it had been a full month since my last wax. These strips stick together, smell very odd, break hair at the root and my legs were left red, blotchy and spotty hair everywhere.
Really, really wish I had just used my wax warmer and muslin strips like I normally do. Now I have to wait a month, with a really bad wax job. Bummer!

This is such a buzz kill product. I needed an alternative to shaving because hair was growing thicker on my underarms. I read the instructions and rubbed the strips and split them carefully.. next thing I know is that there is goopy was all over ! NO hair was removed at all, and the hairs on my underarms are not that thick anyways. I really would like to try the sally hansen microwavable formula.

I really liked these strips. I've only ever used Parissa strips and these were better at hair removal, in my opinion. I'm sorry I waited so long to try them. The bikini was a breeze. And I only used 3 double-sided strips. Nad's fabric-like strips are more flexible than Parissa's plastic strips. I was also able to use the same strip a few times with decent results.
I took one point off the overall rating because I had some trouble with my armpits because it didn't remove as much hair as I would have liked. Then again, it was the first time I've ever tried waxing my armpits. Maybe with practice, Nad's will do it all.
ETA: I think you have to get a fresh box to get good results. I tried to use strips I had for a while and they were absolutely worthless. Perhaps they should have an expiration date.

My friend uses these pretty successfully, and they were cheap and available at CVS, so I thought I would give them a go. After rubbing these, came apart easily, although it took a little practice before I could manage to not get all the wax stuck on one strip. The wax smells nice, but why add an irritating fragrance to a product women are going to use all over their bodies? I followed the directions perfectly, reusing the strips, and I was not able to get all the hair of my legs! My legs are not smooth and hair free and I'm going to have to shave. My leg hair was approximately 3-4 mm long, so it was ready to be waxed. I am pretty disappointed in this product, and will be trying other wax strips by different brands.

This is not a great product, it does an average job. It does take hair off, but it doesn't stay off clean for long. The hair grows back soon. I don't use this for my bikini area though, so I'm not sure how it would work down there. I don't think i'd want to try that... anyway this is just average, but not great. That's why I'm looking for better strips that are ready to wax by someone else..

Ugh. I've used strip waxes for years and I honestly can't remember any with worse performance. Usually use Moujan but these were inexpensive and available at the CVS down the street.
So many issues...
1)The box is too short for the strips so they come out of the packaging all bent and squished.
2)Don't warm up well and often wax sticks to only one of the strips when separated.
3)When applied, in most cases the wax sticks to the skin and you're left with a strip with nothing on it or the strips themselves tear. A total pain.
4)The totally unnecessary artificial apple scent. This would have bothered me less if these actually worked as well as so many other strips on the market.
If you prefer strip wax I'd suggest the Moujan or Parissa brands.

I don't understand all the super negative reviews. I thought they were just fine, nothing spectacular or horrible. They do what wax strips do, the end. You have to rub the strips between your palms well and not wait forever to use the next strip or else that one will slightly dry out obviously. I used these once on my legs and one for my upper lip. I know they are for the body, but you can just cut a small piece and voila! It's the same thing as facial waxing strips. It didn't remove ALL the hair though. That's only because I didn't let my hair grow out enough from shaving. I don't know if those wipes that "numb" the skin actually did anything but it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be... and this is the first time I've ever waxed myself! (It's nearly impossible for me to inflict pain on myself haha)

This product was awful! I never think to write reviews since i usually scope out all items on here before buying but this time it was on impulse and it was a HUGE MISTAKE!
I read the instructions and briskly rubbed the wax strips between my palms to heat it up a bit but when i pulled it apart the wax stuck to only one strip making the product useless. I thought i didn't rub the strips enough and tried again, rubbing even more and pulling the strips apart slowly but again the wax stuck together. I tried for a third time and pulled apart slowly and it finally worked!! HOWEVER i put the wax strip on my leg, rubbed it on like the instructions said and then went to rip off the strip. The strip came off but the wax did not so i was left with a 5cmx10cm strip of wax stuck to my leg. Waxing should not be so hard especially since i followed the instructions word for word!!
This product is not worth the money. I'm not sure if it is NADS or the type of product but i will never ever use wax strips ever again just to be sure. I'll just put up with the messiness and buy the wax you apply yourself....
I dont even think this was that cheap costing $5 more than Nair wax strips...
The worst part is that this product claims it is the winner of the 2010 Australian Readers Choice Beauty Awards but i now think it is claiming credit from another NADS product that actually won.

Used these on my arms the first time I ever waxed them. These strips worked great and I will definately repurchase. I used a blowdrier on low heat to smooth the strip on the skin better before ripping it off. The drier parts of my arm did break out in red welts, but only lasted a few hours ( I think this would happen regardless of which wax product I use). The hair on my arms is dark and fine and came off very easily with these. Saved myself $50 by doing it myself and there is no stubble like I would get from a razor. My arms have never felt so soft and beautiful!

I really like these wax strips. I went to target and bought them on a whim. It's funny because when I got home I took them out to look at them and my brother wanted to know how painful waxing was so I tested these strips on him. With one strip (the half of the one you pull apart) we waxed his hair on his stomach (happy trail?), toe hairs, nipple hairs and even a tiny portion of his leg hair. HAHA it was quite funny. He said it didn't hurt as much as he thought it would and they left his skin hairless and smooth. I was surprised at how one strip could remain so sticky! Then on myself, I waxed my legs (it took 2 strips) and I'm pleased with the results. I attempted to use them on my face, but because these are very large, I think it's best to use the ones that are designed for facial hairs. I would purchase this again. Easy to use and with a little baby oil, the remaining wax comes right off!

This is a truly horrendous product. I am VERY disappointed in this. When I rubbed the strips between my hands to warm them up before use, like recommended, it did not do anything at all. I warmed the strips up long enough and still, when I separated the strips, I would only get one strip out of the two with wax on it. Then you completely waste half of the strips! As far as application goes, it was even worse. The strips didn't grip any hair at all and were not the least bit more efficient on the second use. I tried with many strips and the only thing it'd do is hurt me - without even taking off any hair at all. Plus, here is the worst thing about these strips. After ripping a strip off, all the wax remained sticked to my leg. It was NOT fun AT ALL to take that off. In fact, it hurt me even more than the waxing itself. Bottom line, I will never use these again, since they were so bad that I ended up shaving my legs completely after use. In total, these strips took off about 4-5 hair on both of my legs. That's just RIDICULOUS. I will not even use these a second time or finish up the box.

I love these! I am a veteran waxer and I know nothing compares to a salon wax. I also have a warmer and do my own salon style waxes at home. I love my warmer but it is time consuming and messy.
I bought these on a whim. I tried many pre-waxed strips before and these are the best. I know people rave about Parissa but I hated those because of the flimsy plastic strips.
These work very well and the wax washes off easily. I even used each strip at least 2 times and it still removed hair well.
I still prefer salon services but these are perfect for when you don't have the time to get there.

This works good for waxing, gets all the hair and is in convenient ready to use strips you just warm up between your hands. And of course it is going to hurt some... it is waxing after all.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Hazel
This is. by far the worst most awful thing I have ever tried in my entire life.
If your trying this on your toes, do not.
If you want to try thid on your legs, do not.
If you want to try this on your armpits, do not.
If you want to try this on your bikinis line do not.
**VERY VERY VERY PAINFUL!!!!!!!****
However, I didnt mind it in between my eyebrows, that was the only place that it was effective on removing hair.

Normally, I do not have sensitive skin; however, after using this product I developed a "waxing burn." This product does not require the wax to be heated, but my skin was still raw and sore 48 hours after application. The desensitizing wipes chemically burned my skin and then caused bleeding after waxing. You can actually see where the wax strip was applied 48 hours after use. Like many reviews before, this product does not work well for underarms, especially because it does not wax all the hair...Love the concept but this product is not for me.

Ive tried waxing a few times- never really had any success- but it was the end of winter so I thought I would give it a try...these were bad. I had wanted to try NADS for a while, but this was terrible. When I was reading the outside of the box, I was concerned about the few strips, but then I read you could use them again so I thought "well ok!".
But when I tried to use them, not all the hair came off the first time (the ones that came off were rather painful and ungraceful), and they were basically not sticky after that, so going a second time was laughable. But I gave it a try after "smudging" the wax around a little, and SOME hair came off, but I still had some left. By the time I got it all, I had probably used 3 strips and it was painful. I ended up getting about 74% of my legs done, and the rest I used my electric razor on. My legs were never "smooth".
Now as it has been growing back in, I have to keep an eye and counteract the ingrown hairs and observe the little scabby bumps I have everywhere. Terrible.
