              These are the best way strips. Warm them with a blow dryer and you're good to go.

                    I should know when something looks easy enough that it probably isn't. I tried twice to use these. First time it hardly removed any hair, and the second time all the wax came off on one side rendering the 2nd side useless. Guess I'll be sticking to my old fashioned razor on my trip after all.

                      I bought this because Sally Hansen is a good brand and that has a good reputation to its products. Unfortunately this one of the worst products I have bought from them.

                      First I used the pre-treatment wipes which effectively numb the area (for me it was the upper lip). Which scares to me think what kind of chemicals even exist on those wipes. The numbing sensation felt a bit like the after effects of Novocaine. I waited 10 min after as stated on the box, warmed the strips with my hands, and applied them to my upper lip. After I pulled the strip off, half of my hair was still on my lip. Since the skin is already sensitive, one should never re-strip the same area (in fear of further irritating the skin). I had to end up plucking the rest. What's the point of claiming "PAIN FREE TECHNOLOGY" is it doesn't actually wax and leaves behind alot the majority of the hair.

                      I am experienced with at-home wax strips and was disappointed by this product, as well as, upset that I spent my money on something that did not deliver the promised results. It seems they are investing less on the quality, and therefore will not be getting anymore money from me.

                        I tried these for the first time and was very disappointed. I didn't get good results at all. I then decided to give a try again and got the same results. I wouldn't recommend this product at all.

                            I was a bit skeptical about this product, because I had never waxed by myself. However it worked great and I would buy it again.

                            Ok, so these are my absolute favorite wax strips. You just warm them up in your hands and they work so effectively. I buy this kit specifically because ALL the strips are large, body sized strips which are what I need. Most wax strip kits have the strips in a variety of sizes in the same box, small/medium/large, but I only need large and this was the first one I found that gave me all large. I don't even use the pain-relief wipes that you are supposed to prep your skin with because I'm not a wimp (haha) so I can't comment on how well those work. I don't use the post-wax oil it comes with either, just the strips, and they are great.

                            HOWEVER, I am so disappointed to find that the product does not store well in colder temperatures. I had a brand new box that I went to use and it would not warm up in my hands, even microwaving the strips didn't help because the wax had basically crystallized. So this does not store well at all in winter and I'll have to throw them out! I live in California (Bay Area) so it's not even super cold, lows of 50 degrees - can't imagine how quickly these would go bad in colder climates. There should be a warning about this on the box. Now I need to find a new wax to use during the winter!

                            I bought this product to use for my arms. I have thinner hair on my arms than other places so I thought it would be easy and not painful. You really have to spend time rubbing the strip with your hand otherwise you won't rip out any hairs at all. But if you do heat it up just right your hair will grab on to the wax with no problem. Its the easiest thing in the world and I recommend to anyone that has trouble with waxing.

                                So I have never waxed before but decided to get this. I do not have sensitive skin. To test it I tried it on my legs which are the least sensitive part and it didn't work at all. I felt the pain but no hair came off. I tried it six times following every direction to perfection- still no hair. However I already opened it so I had nothing to lose when trying it on my armpits. It got maybe five hairs off each time and my armpit hair is coarser than my leg hair but it worked a tiny but better there. It took me an hour and 20 strips to get 1/2 the hair off, but was left with bruising and ridiculous pain. DONT BUY THIS!!!!!! IT DOESNT WORK!!!!!
