I'll be honest: I'm a hairy half-Mexican. I'm that chick that kind of has a little bit of a 'stache rockin'. I also have something that one ex-boyfriend affectionately referred to as "fuzzy monkey butt". You know, that patch of fuzz above your a-word that no one wants to see chillin' above your bikini bottoms. I have hairy arms. So, no, I'm not exactly Frida Kahlo, but I do have hair in places where I do not feel I need it. I should be spiritually advanced enough to love myself exactly the way I am, but I read the Four Agreements, and I still prefer to remove the excess rug from my mug.

This is definitely my weapon of choice. I won't go into all the details of waxing because most people reading the reviews already know what a wax job feels like. It sucks. But these are probably the easiest, no-heat cold wax strips I've used. The oil that comes with them is also pleasant and soothing. My skin gets super irritated very easily and I usually wind up looking like a baboon in heat after my back wax, but with this kit, it doesn't last very long. I also have noticed I don't get as many ingrowns.

I like the fragrance. It sort of smells like pine tar. I know that sounds weird, but it made me wonder if perhaps the makers of Parissa spread a bunch of pitch on some strips and stuck them in boxes. Either way, good stuff. Grabs a lot of the hair so going back and touching up isn't too big of a chore.

I still don't use it on my face, because I don't want to look like Ronald McDonald after ripping the hairs out above my upper lip. But if you do use anything for yours, I suggest Parissa.

I have used Nad's and wanted to like it. If I can't find Parissa, I will use the Nad's strips. But from experience, I think Parissa just all-around works better.

You really should warm them up for a minute in your hands before peeling them apart, though. Just an FYI.

After waxing pretty steadily for a year or two, I have noticed the hair coming back in finer. So if you're a beast like me, I suggest Parissa.

Bought this kit and the Moom Tea Tree kit to try on my legs and compare. I liked the Moom kit much more. In fairness, the Parissa kit is really easy to use; however, my main complaint is that one kit wasn't even enough to do one leg from the knee down. I have fine hair that I'd let grow out quite a but, but even so I'd have expected it to do more. This kit would be convenient for travel touch-ups and maybe is better for smaller areas, but I wouldn't recommend for full leg waxing.

      I use Parissa Easy Wax Strips to remove hair from my forearms. It works great and with hardly no pain at all. East to use and removes all hair. I used to have this done and can now do it myself in my home. Thanks!

        It is true that this is easy to put on and washes off easily, BUT it also removes NOTHING; not one hair was removed! I have very fine hair, but I would expect at least one hair to be removed. NOPE. Total waste of money. Back to wax for me.

          I have waxed my arms for years, and have always used soft, hot wax & muslin strips. I saw this product and really wanted a product that could be the job done more quickly and on the road. This product does the trick. I'm switching over - no more hot wax. You can use strips more than once, but the second and third application do leave hairs behind - had to go back. Overall great product - not sticky.

            Comments about Parissa Quick & Easy Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 16 ea:

            I have tried everything, and when I finally tried this (based on positive reviews!), I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. Shaving causes too many in-grown hairs; sugaring is so messy; the expensive epilator I bought is a torture device I can't bring myself to use. But, finally, I can deal with the coarse, dark hair on my thighs thanks to parissa!

            The clear plastic strips make it easier to see what I'm doing and not go over my sensitive skin more than once, plus help in "missing hair" spots. (I do still have some missed spots, but I will take shaving off a few spots over shaving the whole leg any day!)

            It actually works really well on the first try, so it is quicker than other things I've tried. It's also less painful, even than other natural wax strips brands I've tried. And the azulene oil they give you with it makes your skin smooth and gets rid of the sticky leftover wax pretty well.

            I highly recommend to anyone out there looking for a solution to a lot of dark hair. I am a big wimp when it comes to pain, but this product gives me hope that I could actually have clean, smooth skin again!

                These strips work great! I have used strips of various brands and none work as well as these. They are easy to divide and don't leave empty spots on the sheets. They apply easily and take almost all of the hair off. They work better than microwavable products without all the hassle! Plus they can be used over and over which I love so I can catch the hairs missed the first time and also re-use the sheets to catch the "little" places like my toes and forearms.

                I have use many different products, i have strong hair. For legs i always use ready to use wax strips and for underams i use warm wax because strips are newer strong enough to remove hair there.
                Parissa wax strips are good for legs, but i prefer veet strips, they are easier to warm and grip hair better (using one strip, which devided in 2 to finish both legs below knee)

                  I'm going back to shaving. I used this product on recommendation from a friend who hates shaving her legs. Sure, it's easy to use and doesn't hurt. But I tried Parissa several times, and each time it only seemed to get about a third of the hair. It left so much hair that I have to conclude that this product just does not work for me. With that much hair left, I have to shave anyway.

                      The results with this wax are amazing! It is ridiculously simple to use, grabs all hair with very minimal touch-up plucking for strays, and the wax cleans off easily with any type of oil (preferably baby oil on a warm, damp wash cloth). There was very little redness or bumpiness immediately after use, the wax is very gentle to the skin. This product has eliminated the routine need for pricier spa visits, I am officially a devoted fan of this product!
