Most Helpful Positive Review Better than expected
I bought these on recommendation from one of the store clerks at my local Ulta. I have had very painful and expensive [$]experiences in the past when I went to get my bikini wax professionally done. I was skeptical when I first bought these, but they work great, and now I will never go back to a salon. They do miss some hair, but it's not enough that I can't tweeze it quickly away. It's relatively painless, and sometimes I will have redness, but it goes away quickly. And at this price, why should I ever go to a salon again?
Most Helpful Critical Review Wouldn't get all the hair
I have coarse hair but I've been waxing for months thus the hair while still coarse is fine in a way so it easily comes out with waxing or plucking (sometimes i can even pull out hairs with just my fingers, bulb and all).
I got this thinking it would be easier than that hot wax (which I loved!) but this was well, same difficulty in handling, so awkward but doable. It worked kind of for my bikini line but I'm a brazilian sort of girl so when I tried getting in closer for the more thick patches these strips just sort of stopped working and left the wax on my skin rather than pull up the hair.

Terrible - Ripped my Facial Skim
Val from Philadelphia
Used these to wax my lip and it ripped my skin off! I woke up the next day with a red bruised lip area. Also all the hair isn't removed! Highly don't recommend.
Waste of time & money
Lauren from Florida
I have gotten professional waxing done multiple times before but have stopped going to the salon due to COVID. I decided to give these a try because great price and most of the reviews said it would be fine if you were experiences with waxing. I tried my bikini line and I even warmed up the strips with a blow dryer for heat (as someone suggested) and I know the drill on the application and removal. it was not at all painful however it barely removed the hair. and after multiple strips and attempts, I am unsatisfied and will have to shave once the redness and everything calms down in a day or two. would not buy again and would not recommend to a friend.
DO NOT BUY
eliza from Vermont
Other than the fact that these didnt take any hair off, they ripped me skin off and now my face is all bloody and red and hurts really bad! Do not buy!

Don't waste your money didn't work
Only kind of works
macartist816 from Santa Fe
It took off some hair, not all, and left the sticky residue on me. It could work better on different hair types maybe?
DO NOT USE THE OIL ON FACE
Sunshine from Cali
Omg, that oil. I thought I would wax my upper lip, and now I have a terrible rash/breakout that is way worse than the peach fuzz that was there before. Stupid me because I should have known that oil on my face is bad news, but it's been DAYS and it's still there. Arghh. The wax strips are ok but definitely did not get all the hair. Better than nothing I guess.
Do not buy this product!!
Eostby from Vermont
I used this product to wax my upper lip and instead of just removing the hair, it took off a patch of my skin too!! I now have a decent sized patch in my cheek that is super read and painful to touch. I do not recommend this product.
Did not work
BMW from IA
I was excited to try these, but should have saved my money and just bought a wax pot instead. Did not work.
Each strip got MAYBE 3 hairs and did not get ANY when tried on underarms.
Waste of time and money.

I WOULD DEFINITLY BUY THIS PRODUCT AGAIN

DID A PERFECT JOB!!!!
So easy to use
Bistro from Los Angeles
I've tried many options and brands to wax my upper lip/chin and I always come back to Parissa. It is easy to use and it does remove my hair from one wax. The strips are just the perfect size for upper lip. I use it on my daughter too and she also has great results.
Uncomfortable sticky mess
Alice V from Milwaukee WI
I COULD HAVE USED IT WRONG BUT both my friend and I were left with extremely sticky residue and all of the hair still there. Residue wouldn't come off with anything, including cotton fabric strips. We followed the directions exactly and this was the result. Not impressed
Works on both peach fuzz and coarse facial hair
Jill from New York, NY
I only use these on my face. Works on my peach fuzz and thicker hair, too. I've tried so many wax strip brands over the years and Parissa is, by far, my favorite. Easy to use, not messy, stress-free. I usually have some strips left over so one box lasts for at least two uses.
Fast and easy

Great when I can't get to the spa.
Buy this product again
Penny Lane from Waxhaw
Once every two weeks
Love the ease of this product
Rose from Plainview, NY
These strips are good for the face. Just make sure your skin is squeaky clean and free of moisturizers when using.
This was the biggest waste of money. Did not work at all.
Disappointed :( from Milwaukee, WI.
This product does not work. Did nothing. When applied it just peeled off, not taking any hair with it.
I would buy again to use for my face.
SarahM from Fayetteville
Worked great on facial hair, did leave wax residu that clogged pores
I would not buy this product again
Bri from Atlanta ga
It doesn't work on all hair types
Not Really Worth It
Chlo from New Jersey
As much as these strips are easy to use, they're extremely painful. Mind you, using these was my first waxing experience ever, so the pain was foreign to me, but it's so painful that it felt like something went wrong with every rip. I frequently had to check if I was bleeding, it hurt that bad. Like skin ripping. Also doesn't remove everything, although it does remove a lot. Another note: leaves really bad ingrown hairs!
Over All Good Product
Kalokem from Midwest
Over all i was happy with my purchase. I have very thick hair on my face that even professionals have had problems with and even though it did take a couple tries it worked. The wax leaves a lot of residue that makes it difficult to go back over but it's easy to get off. I found the best way to do it was to cut the strips in half and get as much as i can and then wipe of the wax with the oil and let my skin rest for the night. The next day i go back and get the stragglers. i definitely an on buying them again.
Unsatisfactory from Washington
I bought this to wax my underarms and it was terrible! The sticky residue would not go away and got on everything I touched. Not only was this factor frustrating, but the wax itself was very ineffective. If you are looking for wax strips, check out the No Mo-Bush brand! It's cheap and effective, worked much better than these strips (also less painful if this is a factor for you).
