      Comments about Parissa Microwaveable Warm Wax:

      I tried using Parissa wax a few years back and wasn't really happy until I finally stumbled upon this warm wax, which I have been using for about a year now pretty consistently. This wax is good for legs and bikini area, and I've even used it on my face and not had any bad reactions.
      The only reason I gave this product 4 out of 5 stars is because I have not tried any other brand of wax (besides Sally Hanson strips for my upper lip area), and I feel like there might be better products out there for course hair and sensitive areas. Although for the price this is definitely worth it. I can make one container of the wax last a long time and the only thing I've found myself running out of is the strips but you can use the same strip multiple times if you're experienced with waxing to get the most uses out of them.
      I use the parissa wax warmer as well.

          I use it for arm, legs and underarms. It removes hair very well and quick. It can get messy if you dont know how to use. I use wax warmer for it. And after use oil does trick on skin. Try not to spill it on floor or sink it is hard to get off.

          Used it for face, underarm and bikini area. Easy to spread, removes hair completely. Pretty amber color. Not the best smell, but it's ok.

                  The product works well. My facial skin is too sensitive for it though. I've tried multiple hot waxes and this is the only one that tore off the skin on my upper lips on two separate occasions. I use it on my underarms and it works great at getting stubborn corse hairs.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The product was stuck all over the lid and was a mess to clean up.

                    Tried it to wax my legs, it barely ripped any hair off. There was still stubble when it was done. I wouldn't waste your money. And the warmer is basically just a candle warmer.

                        You might need a good tutorial to use this product. I found it much more difficult to manipulate and remove than regular wax. Overall, not worth the time or effort needed to use it.

                                  Yes you can use our Parissa Warm Wax on your upper lip and eyebrows. If you have very sensitive skin you may want to try out Parissa Sensitive Assorted Wax Strips for the face and bikini line or our Parissa Strip Free Hot Wax. This wax is great for shorter coarse hair in sensitive area like the face, underarms and bikini line.

                                  A:

                                  Hi there, the Parissa Warm Wax is a little harder to use than the Parissa Wax Strips, but, if you're looking for amazon results it's worth it. All of our products come with detailed instructions including photos. :)

                                  How do I use it?

                                  Warm the Parissa Warm Wax in the microwave or on the Parissa Wax Warmer. Once warm, apply a thin layer with spatula provided in the direction of hair growth. Press on fabric strips provided. Zip off in the opposite direction of hair growth, parallel to skin. Do not pull straight up. Keep the skin taut. Technique can make all the difference. Parissa contact details are on the packaging, do not be shy, get in touch if you are having any trouble. Detailed photo instructions are included in the waxing kit, please read carefully. After waxing, remove any excess wax with oil.

                                  More info on Parissa Warm Wax:

                                  This complete kit has everything you need to remove coarse and stubborn hair for smoothness that lasts weeks longer than shaving. Microwaveable and super-effective Parissa Warm Wax removes unwanted coarse hair on legs, body, bikini and face. This is a professional quality oil-soluble wax, which means you would clean any wax residue off the skin with the Parissa Azulene Oil contained in your kit, or any other kind of oil, like baby oil or cooking oil, not with water. Dusting a fine layer of baby powder or cornstarch on the skin before applying wax can help to minimize ouch factor.

                                  Parissa Waxing Tips:

                                  The thinner you spread the product the better the results. Always pull strip back along itself in one quick movement. Do not peel or pull off slowly. The faster the strip is removed the better the results. Continually re-heat warm wax throughout process to maintain fluid honey consistency. Avoid all interruptions and delays during the waxing process. Previously shaved hair is strong and resistant. Wait two weeks or until hair is around 0.25 inches (0.5 cm) long before first use. In hot weather or when perspiring, apply talc or soft powder sparingly. Always press-on in direction of hair growth. Strip-off in opposite direction. To minimize discomfort, keep skin tight throughout treatment. Pull strip back along itself in one quick motion. Never peel off slowly. The faster the strip is removed the better the results. Do not apply wax more than once on the same area during any given treatment. Some redness is normal after waxing.

                                Can you use this container directly on the wax warmer? Seems it would melt, but the warmer description says it can be used with any Parissa container.

                                  Hi Linds, yes you can use this container on the Parissa Wax Warmer :) The Warmer isn't like a stove-top element, it's putting out a gentle heat that is enough to warm the Parissa Warm Wax and safely melt our Parissa Hot Wax. That's also why it takes a good 20 minutes or longer for the wax to reach a nice honey consistency.
