Most Helpful Positive Review THIS PRODUCT WORKS IF USED RIGHT
the people leaving bad reviews were probably not using the product correctly. when you go to apply the product allow the spatula with the wax to sit on the skin for a few seconds before spreading. also a little goes a long way. if you do not allow the wax to heat up with your body temperature it will be hard to spread and painful. this is by far the easiest and less painful than pre waxed strips. also it comes with re-useable cloth strips. as with any product read what the box says, it gives you good tips. really is worth the money.
this is what I did:
put wax on wooden stick
placed stick on skin waited 3 seconds to see if it would spread easily
once spread on skin applied cloth strip rubbed 3-4 times held skin taught as possible and pulled up strip
used same strip on two more areas until the strip no longer pulled out hair.
side note: if using for bikini area, work in small patches, it's a lot easier and less painful.
Most Helpful Critical Review DO NOT BUY THIS
I bought this product excited that it was made for sensitive skin, and that it was hypoallergenic. Oooohhh no! it was so bad. The waxing itself went well, I followed the instructions perfectly, did everything to the book, it definitely removed my hair. But after several hour the redness would not go away. Then it turned into painful itchy bumps! My face had broken out completely into a huge rash all over my cheeks, chin and upper lip. Nothing would make it go away, I've been taking allergy medicine and using coconut oil to ease the inflammation and pain. It's been almost a week and it still looks like I have terrible acne all over my normally clear skin.

Love that you don't have to heat up the wax. If you're new to waxing make sure you follow directions on how to wax properly! This was is the best, not super messy and easy to use. Love that you chance multiple uses unlike the pre made wax strips. Tip for cleaning the wax strips: soak in warm water for an hour, take out strips and rinse, then toss out water.
Not worth it

It doesn't work. I did everything it said and it pulled out 2 hairs total. Don't waste your money
My holy grail
Suzanne from Long Island
I've used nads for years (over 10). I've purchased other wax kits and just threw them out after attempting to use them the first time. I love how nads just rises off with water. I suggest using it on cooler, dry days or in an air-conditioned room (not in a humid bathroom right after your shower). If your skin is sweaty (or oily or dirty) while you use this, it won't work as well. But I use this for my upper lip, underarms, bikini area and I love it. It's my holy grail wax kit. I just bought 2 during a bogo 40% off sale so I'm good for another couple years.

This product barley removed any hair. It also left bruises on my skin! Decided just to go with the microwavable wax kit. Heated wax worked much better!
Did not work for me at all
ajsp13 from NC
I attempted to wax my eyebrows with this and it only pulled one hair out total. I don't know if it needs to be warmed even though it says it isn't necessary, but I really didn't have any results at all after using this product
Alicia from Georgia
Really unimpressed by this product. I get a professional Brazilian wax regularly but wanted to start waxing my legs as well. Decided to try this as it did not need to be heated so I thought it'd be best for sensitive skin. It goes on very thick and gooey and is near impossible to spread out. However to get the strip to actually pull the wax and hair off, it needs to be thin. Otherwise, it just stays on your leg and makes a mess. In hopes of successfully thinning the wax out, I did briefly heat it. This certainly helped, but again, the cloth strip would only pull a portion of wax and hair off and leave the rest a gooey mess. After about an hour, I had finished the bottom of one leg. So I guess you could say it works with modification, but I would not consider this practical at all if it's going to take 4 hours to wax every couple of weeks...
If you have no waxing experience probably don't buy
Kenzie from Kentucky
I wanted this to work so bad. I have very dark corse hair and this was just an epic fail lol. I'm not going to blame it on the product, maybe it's just me not knowing how to make it work. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone like me who has no waxing experience. It wouldn't stick to my skin; I think I got four hairs removed max. I'm a tough girl, I've gotten my hair waxed professionally before. I know how to "rip off the bandaid," but it was just all gooey and didn't pull. Going to return and head back to the razor unfortunately.
I would buy this again
Ann from New York
Great product. It actuallys works. You just have to take your time and work on one section of your body at a time because the cloth they give you in the box isn't enough if you want to do two or more sections of your body.
The only wax I'll ever use!
Shelby from Texas
This was the first product I ever tried to use to wax at home. It does still hurt to remove the hair (which is impossible to avoid) but the fact that this is actually a gel that rinses off easily with just water makes it 1000x less painful in the end. I made the mistake of trying an actual wax product once that was not water soluble and it was a nightmare. I couldn't get the leftover wax off with the wipes that came in the kit so I ended up having to SCRUB it off with soap after I had just waxed the area. Save yourself the blood sweat and tears and use this.
Best wax kit so FAR
tia from GA
Ok I have PCOS and a symptom is facial hair growth . It's a huge insecurity and embarrassing. I've tried sugar waxing, Sally's wax strips, plucking. This is the best one . It's packaged well, you can RESUSE the strips which saves money. I just wash w hot water and let them dry. No heat. Be sure to pull tight to make sure the hair comes off. Overall the best wax kit I've used so far.
Messy, don't know if I'll do it again
Cindy from Michigan
I really wanted to love this. The idea of having smooth legs for weeks made me really want this to work for me. It did an okay job taking out the hair, but I did not have enough cloths to finish my legs and underarms, plus the areas I did wax left me picky. I grew out my hair to the correct minimum length (1/8"), but maybe I should have let it grow out longer? Anyways, I may try again in the next couple days to see if I can get the rest of my leg hair out, so that I don't have patches of waxed and I waxed hair. This left my hands sticky through the entire process, which made everything more of a mess. It's not awful, but I'm not sure if it's worth it for me to spend an entire afternoon removing hair, and not even having it all removed to make it even.
Emmalyn from Redlands, Ca
I've tried sally Hansen, nair, random strips..this is the best there is!! Hair came off so easy and this will last me a long time as there is so much wax.
Absolute love it
atllove7 from Atlanta, GA
This Kit is absolutely amazing, so gentle on the skin yet very effective. Used to use a different brand but now I'm so happy I've discovered this kit! It's algo great for the face, very gentle and easy, no mess at all.
I will buy again!!
Beach Girl from NAPLES Florida
Great leg wax
I LOVE THIS STUFF
Kiki from New york
This is the first time a wax product has actually worked for me. The pre wax strips would take my skin with it but this swiftly ripped out every hair it could grab and my legs look super smooth. And i was able to reuse a strip about 6 times before it got sticky which is a plus. My only problem is even though i can reuse the same strip i wish the had a bigger tub, i would pay for a 12oz or 16oz. Overall i will repurchase.
It didn't remove any hair at all

It didn't hurt much but it also didn't remove hair at all.
Best I've used

The Nads gel kit is the neatest, most effective waxing method I've tried. It works well and is easy to clean up with just warm water. I recommend using a blow dryer to warm up the wax periodically.
Did the bare minimum and made me breakout
Destiny from LA, CA
I was pretty excited to try this. I've always been insecure about the amount of body hair I have, I don't mind the leg and underarm hair much because I know it's typical. I really got this to help with the hairs on my stomach and chest, I had a bad habit of shaving a lot when I was younger and it definitely came back to bite me. My hairs are suuuuuper dark to the point where I don't like to wear crop or tank tops. Anyways, it was my first time waxing but I tend to tweeze these hairs so I thought nothing of it. It hurt, of course, but I got through it. I did my stomach and it didn't really get the root of a lot of hairs so it left the area sparse with tiny ones that I couldn't really tweeze. Once I got to my chest, things went well...until the next day, I broke out in several red bumps (like 8) that lasted for about two, maybe three weeks and now left scars, I had pictures but ended up deleting them (this happened about a month ago). All in all, I'd say this works well if you have thinner/lighter hairs, like I said, mine are super dark and thick from constant shaving but it still managed to get a good amount if them, just not completely and it made me break out in one area. The strange thing was that I don't have sensitive skin and I only broke out on my chest, but not my stomach, underarms, part of my back, nor my leg or arm where I did a patch test.
I would buy this again
Nova from Broomfield,CO
I love this stuff!! I don't have to pay to get my underarm waxed and This product lasts for months and months!!!
I have used this product since it's inception, by mail only
KB from CB Ia
I have been waxing for over 30 years, no razors for me.
Best wax ever!
Beautiful from America
This is so great and easy to use! But you have to make sure to let it heat up on your skin before spreading. It barely hurts too!
This will save me a lot of money!
SewKerrie from Tampa, FL
I will never need professional waxing services for my underarms or lower legs again! This is wonderful, and I love that the fabric can be washed and reused. I am wary about trying this in the bikini area, just because it may be difficult for me to spread thinly in that area.
Love this product! Been using it for about 5 years now.
Paula from Center Moriches ny
I use this product for brows, lip, and bikini.
Awful product that doesn't do anything.
C from Artesia
I tried this product a couple times and all it did was rip at my skin. I followed the directions carefully. definitely waste of money!
Best waxing gel kit
Dee from Rego center
I love it.. this wax gel is the best. No heat required, just apply it on skin, and wax it off. All hair comes out smoothly, and skin is so clear. No reaction, no bumps, just soft skin. Just love it.
