Here we go... I've spent way too much money on bikini waxes and this has been an excellent alternative. Remember, this is for bikini waxing, I wouldn't/haven't tried it on any other part of my body. I bought mine on Amazon.com for about 40$. The wax takes about 40 minutes to heat up (I'd take a ibuprofen around when you turn it on) and you can jump in the shower while you wait which makes waxing easier. HAVE PATIENCE AND TAKE YOUR TIME I recommend starting from the outside and bottom, going in and up. I didn't use strips with it (even though it is a hardwax) like others have, but could see how it would have the potential of pulling it off easier. Start small and in an area with fewer hairs to test it, and see how you like the consistency and temperature to pull the wax off. Use the pre-oil and cooling gel (if you get the pack). It takes time and patience, but with practice it will get easier and less painful. Took me about an hour to do a bikini plus, but I was amazed with the at-home results. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who isn't a seasoned waxer or doesn't feel confident they can do this to themselves. It was relatively painless- but you're still waxing your "area". Good luck!

***Update: OH MY GOD, DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE FINE HAIR. DOES ANYONE READ REVIEWS BEFORE PURCHASING??? IDIOTS DISCLAIMER: This product works best for hair that is THICK. I have naturally thick, dry, curly hair and this is my HG product when straightening it (almost every day). I use it before I straighten and it makes my hair feel like silk after. I've been using this product for four years and I love it. I wash my hair about three times within a two week period with nice (and expensive...) shampoo and conditioner, but don't need to pay much (8$ a bottle) for this heat protector. It's like an oil that activates by straightening irons. The smell is a bit overwhelming (but it does die down) and most people actually liked it. I wouldn't recommend this to any one who has thin hair, it's too oily. This is for anyone with THICK, DAMAGED HAIR, who likes to use any kind of heat to style their hair (especially curly to straight). HG, 5 STARS, 4 YEAR CUSTOMER
