GOOD STUFF. I'm a newbie at waxing but I think i'm staying with this one. First, the wax, within the time of use, I didnt need to re-heat it it lasts. I think the reason is because I let it sit in the hot water for about 5-10 min n then heat it up in microwave for 20 sec (i suggest u to try it). Second, the strips could be washed and reused; not only can it be rewashed, but it can still be used when it's wet (I ran out of the few dry ones i brought into the restroom with me so i used the washed ones. It works!). Last, after you zip off, if you do it quickly enough u can go for second application for areas with few hairs. Yup. Absolutely amazing. ALSO, it's VERY EASY to wash off the wax. It took me 1 min to just wipe the plate, the applicator and the unwanted wax off the container.

I give myself a Brazilian wax with this product when I'm in a pinch and don't have time for a professional appointment. It's sticky though . . .not so much a problem on your skin because it comes off in the shower or with baby oil. But if you are sitting on a chair or couch or even lay down a towel between you and the chair, it will ruin it.

      i don't know why anyone would use wax instead of sugar. it works just as well, it hurts much much less, skin recovery time (for me) is cut down from 2 days to 2 hours, the azulene oil is great. the more i use it the better i get at it in terms of less mess and less time-consuming. the strips can easily be washed, dried and reused.

        I had been using the boxed prewaxed strips, but tried this product based on the great reviews. When I first opened the box I though it was going to be a messy, time consuming task. Groan! This was incredibly easy to use and did an excellent job. I think I had to tweeze 2 hairs when I finished waxing and that was it. This product was not as irritating to my skin as the prewaxed strips were.
        I did find that I had to microwave the jar for about 20 seconds more than stated in the directions. The VERY BEST feature of this product is that is washes off with warm water! Amazing!

          This is the best sugar hair-removal product out there right now. [...] I use the Parissa body sugar. It heats in the microwave pretty fast and then I put the container in a small bowl full of hot water in order to keep the temp even as I use it. My piece of advice is to apply just a very thin layer of the sugar on skin - that's how it gets all the hair. If you use too much, it won't work as good. Yes it takes some practice and patience cause I have been waxing/sugaring since I was 12 (I'm now 25) and I just started getting good at it a couple of years ago. I use it every 5-6 weeks and the hair is becoming finer and less coarse after every use. I never shave.It washes off pretty easily and the smell is quite pleasant compared to other products.I wish it came with a roll-on applicator [...]

              As far as at home hair removal products go, this one is the absolute best. Waxing is never an easy or painless process, lets be honest. But if you prefer the results of waxing, as I do, and are comfortable with doing it yourself, this is the ONLY product to use in my opinion. It's basically like any other product out there, BUT, the sugar formula is all natural, and water soluable. Because of this, you can wash the cloth strips provided and reuse them. This means you won't run out of cloth strips before you run out of the hair removal product. I use this for my bikini area and underarms, and it works well. Not 100% of the hair is removed 100% of the time, but it's pretty effective for both fine and coarse hair. Coarse hair probably comes out more easily. Baby powder is helpful to eliminate moisture and allow better adhesion.

                I've tried other home waxing products and like this the best so far. It seems more gentle, but the best part is how easily it washes off - all you need is water! It's not nearly as messy as regular waxes for that reason. I would have given this 5 stars, but they only give you 3 applicators, and I don't like to re-use them, so I've had to buy tongue depressors. Other than that, it's great.

                  This is one of the only hair removal products that you can actually wash off with water (all the true wax removal need to be removed with oil which really doesn't work and leaves a sticky mess)! This makes it a much cleaner and easier process especially for beginners! I used this for legs and bikini. I can usually do it twice with this amount. I wish there were more wax since you can reuse the strips I always run out of wax way before strips.

                          I have used this wax for at least 15 years, and even though I've tried others I always come back to this one. It is one of the only waxes that is water-soluble - I find this is gentler on my skin, and besides, much easier to clean up (whether on your skin or the countertop). And no chemicals!

                          i zap it in the microwave for 10 sec and then place it in a waterbath to keep the sugar wax from getting sticky and thick.

                          in my last order the bottle of azulene oil was broken. i was the first time it had happened...good thing i don't use it too often other wise it would have been tragic.
