I generally shave my legs/underarms etc but love trying new ways of getting rid of unwanted hair ...some of them unsuccessfully! I have used wax in various forms before so it wasn't exactly something new to me, even though it's been a while since I used anything other than a razor.
The idea of wax strips really appeals to me as they give a long-lasting effect, are less messy than other wax forms, and are relatively quick and easy to use.
I like to have a bath before using any kind of wax as I moisturise my legs regularly so like to make sure there's no left over residue which could prevent the wax working to its full potential. I also exfoliate to get rid of any dead skin. Once all that's out the way, it's time to start waxing.
As you can see from the pic, this pack contains wax strips in various sizes to suit each area of the body and also contains a small bottle of post hair removal care. You get 10 large strips for body/legs, 10 smaller ones for underarms/bikini, 4 smaller again for the face (I assume above the lip) and 8 tiny strips for eyebrows.
In order to get the wax strips to work, either hold them between your palms for a couple of minutes, or stick them under your legs as this helps soften the wax making them much more usable. Once you feel it's softened enough (and is mildly warm), peel the 2 strips apart and apply one directly to the area needing waxed. Smooth with palm in a downward motion going with the hair growth. Once satisfied that it's stuck, grab the bottom and peel back in an upward motion going against the hair growth. This ensures that the hairs are pulled out from the deep within.
I personally found that these strips could maybe do with a little more wax on them as they were slightly sparse once separated. They were extremely simply to use and left very little residue on my legs after use. I found these slightly less painful than some I've tried but I also noticed a few finer hairs which were left behind. I managed to use each strip twice but really could have done with more. Despite me being quite petite I found that the body strips provided weren't quite enough to do both of my legs from top to bottom and only managed the bottoms!
Once I got rid of the few leftover stray hairs, my legs felt pretty smooth and not as red as they have been when using other brands ...it was a blessing that the 'plucked chicken skin' didn't appear! The post hair removal care has a really nice smell and got rid of the small amount of stickiness that was left over, leaving my legs gorgeously smooth and ready for showing!
