So I just used this for the first time last night on the bikini line, and wow. With the first "zip" of the strip my draw dropped... 0 hairs left. Plus it hurt less than waxing. Now whether that's because of the product or my waxer sucks.. I don't know... but seriously it wasn't so bad pain wise. The oil they provide to put on after is wonderful, it gets any sticky residue off (not that I had much) and it calms the redness down. I have sensitive skin, and while I was red last night... this morning it had significantly gone down. As a tip** use POWDER before you wax, it helps the wax stick to your hair and not your skin. It does make a difference. The only complaint I would have is that the strip sizes were a little small... there are only a few big ones in this box. Next time I will get the bigger ones for face and bikini. But these are great to have too. Other than that, the price is great, the quality is shockingly good. Just FOLLOW THE RULES, especially about how to zip it off. Try it!

I bought this product - for "sensitive skin" - for removing fine facial hairs (have to use tweezers for the coarse ones). Got better results from the regular Parissa wax strips, which are not as creamy. Though easy to use, these strips missed many hairs and my skin was sensitive from repeated application to missed spots. The cleanup oil, provided, did its job marvelously.

Comments about Parissa Wax Strips 3 Assorted Sizes, Sensitive, 24 ea:

This beats tweezing and missing the light colored hairs. It doesn't get all the dark coarse ones, but so far this is the best product for me. I have to be careful on mustache as I got a red "dot" mark now. I don't use Retin A, but watch tender spots like that. I tried to live without this product, but found I missed it!

Comments about Parissa Wax Strips 3 Assorted Sizes, Sensitive, 24 ea:

1. Did not remove a single strand of hair.
2. Left the skin sticky. Basically, just like tape with glue.
3. Too expensive for a non-working product.

    This is by far the easiest waxing product I have used. It is probably best for touch-ups -- or in between more major waxings -- but I have also used it for a major waxing. I just wish more strips were included in the package. It works out to be rather expensive per strip -- but because of its ease of use and effectiveness, it's worth it.

    Easy to use and good for touch-ups. Misses a few hairs, but it's worth it for the ease of use.

      My small town doesn't have any aetheticians. I get waxed by a professional when I get the chance, and use these waxing strips for any "up-keep."

      I use these between waxings with Parissa hot wax on my bikini line, and I use them on my tummy. Results don`t last as long as hot wax and warm wax results, but they`re great for travel and maintainence.

      Comments about Parissa Wax Strips 3 Assorted Sizes, Sensitive, 24 ea:

      I started using a Rx retinol and was worried about using harsh wax on my unfortunately very hairy face :(. These strips, however, let me keep that as my little secret! Painless and quick, these strips are the perfect size to get rid of my dark fuzz on my cheeks, upper lip, chin, and the sides of my neck- perfectly smooth and bright :). Only complaints is that the wax is very creamy and has a hard time getting those few coarser hairs on the curve of the chin. It gets most of them, so its not hard to take care of the rest with a tweezer.
