    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.

    Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

    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!

    Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

    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.

        Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

        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!!!!!

          Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

          I thought I would try these for an at-home bikini wax. Not only did the ouch-relief wipes do nothing, the wax strips were extremely difficult to get warmed up. They didn't remove all the hair and I feel like they removed more skin than hair.

          Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

          Just make sure you heat it very well. As I laid on my back to wipe down my stomach, I put the wax strips underneath my body to get more heat. Pull the strips apart slowly like the instructions say or it'll mess up the wax. Once you apply it, make sure to actually pull away from the direction the hair is going. I made the mistake and it won't pull any hair off. I wouldn't recommend it for previously shaved hair though.

            Comments about Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit:

            I have really thick black hair. I used to use sally hansen's other pre wax strips but i found myself using more than 6 to get all the hair in underarms. i decided to give this a try and WOW i love it! its probably a little ouchless when the prewipes are used but i just wax my underarms and it only takes two strips to get all the hair out! I will continue to use these and I know that i will be saving money too! :)
