I have exceedingly sensitive skin, and I have used these successfully for years. I think people are over-thinking this. When I use them, I rub my hands together over them and pull apart slowly. I use only one to do my lip, chin and eyebrows, so I fold the "other one" onto itself and slide it back into the pouch. Lasts forever that way. I use it WITHOUT washing my makeup off at the end of the day, if I haven't been perspiring. DO NOT use it over a glycolic acid product!!!!!
Lay it over the hair at an angle such that you can easily pull it off at the opposite angle from hair growth (not straight-across like a mustache, but lower at outside corner and higher toward nose), and use your other hand to pull the skin taught--just opening your mouth wide is not enough. Rip it off quickly. If it does not remove all of the hair, do it once more on that location, and no more. Tweeze the couple of hairs that remain. When doing my eyebrows, I trim the backing to the edge of the adhesive so that I can see exactly where it's going. Again, pull the skin taught. After, it takes a couple of swipes with a cotton ball dabbed in mineral oil to remove all of the residue before you wash your face as usual. I use witch hazel astringent on a cotton ball after I wash, to calm the skin and remove any mineral oil residue. If I accidentally get a little "rowdy," a dab of antibacterial/pain relief cream clears it up overnight. Easy. Reliable. Painless compared to any other hair-pulling method.
BTW: HATE the Nads wand. I dont' have time to heat and fight with the thing.

These strips don't work nearly as well as the Nad's Face Wand for eyebrows. You have to cut the strips to the shape you want. The finer hairs were still left behind and I had to do more tweezing than anticipated. Also, this isn't the same gel as the other products. It is almost like an adhesive that is hard to remove if it gets stuck on your skin. The strips are more like a piece of tape (it loses its stickiness after one use) than the Nad's Face Wand gel which stays sticky so you can re-stick the strip if you miss a few hairs.

      Tried this to remove facial hair over lip & it did not remove any hair even tho' I carefully followed directions.It took off bits of skin which left bloody sores & scabs that took a long time to heal.Total waste of money & was painful to use.

      Comments about Nad's Facial Wax Strips, 24 ea:

      I have dark facial hair( thanks pcos! ) and decided to start waxing at home simply because I had no time/ money to spend at the salon! I use this on my chin and side burns! It is a miracle that I do not break out from it as I have very acne prone skin. The only issue is sometimes I have to use it twice over the same area to make sure I get all the hair but no biggie! I would recommend it whole heartedly

      My all-time favorite wax strips

            Comments about Nad's Facial Wax Strips, 24 ea:

            I use this wax mostly on my upper lip and chin. You simply warm the strip between your hands (this will take more or less time depending on the air temperature) pull the strips apart, place, pat it for a few seconds to set and let the wax grip into the hair, take a deep breath and pull quickly!

            I have fairly thick skin from frequent exfoliation so I can go over the same spot a couple of times to get each and every tiny little hair... be careful! Your mileage may vary!

            I highly recommend these strips.

            Comments about Nad's Facial Wax Strips, 24 ea:

            The pre-sized strips are easy to use. I cut in half for small areas and better control. The same Strip can be used repeatedly until the wax no longer picks up hairs. I prefer to remove the Wax left on skin with coconut oil rather than the rougher wipe-style product that comes in package, which is very oily, drippy and scratchy feeling and irritated my sensitive skin. It takes me repeated applications on same area to remove hairs, and still doesn't get all the hairs. More and repeated usage irritates my sensitive skin so I use minimally and also do some plucking. This product does not get all the hairs.

              I find this product so quick and easy to use. I was a little frustrated when my hands are cold but the idea hit one day... use the already plugged in hair dryer my husband leaves out! A few seconds instead of rubbing between your palms does the job!

                I used to use Sally Hansen wax strips, but these ones are so much better and less expensive.
                The fabric-like texture of the strips makes it remove the hair a LOT better than the plastic strips (like Sally Hansen ones) and the cleanup is a lot easier than other wax strips I've used, it comes off skin easily when you're done.
                I would definitely recommend these and especially like that they give you some oil wipes to soothe your skin/remove the wax, very nice!

                      I'm over 40 and finding more and more upper lip hair. I've tried several products and this is best by far. It is easy to use and does the job. Yes, it will hurt. You are ripping hair out by the root! I recommend doing at night before bed. The redness will be gone by morning.

                      I occasionally have ingrown hairs after, but find if I do gentle exfoliation of my upper lip between use, it not a problem.

                      More effective than Sally Hansen and less painful but it has caused some breakouts for me. It also misses hair, but I do have very course hair.
