I could kiss the person who invented these!!! I just tried these for the very first time and I'm honestly amazed! I have tried so many eyebrow waxing strips and NONE of them worked before this. All of the ones I used before caused a lot of pain but removed very little hair. I saw that these had excellent ratings so I gave them a try and I'm so glad I did! My eyebrows look like I just came from the salon and it was so easy! I waxed the mustache too. I'm ordering more of these because I never want to run out! I honestly believe they're the best facial hair waxing strips out there. Like I said, I have tried many, but these are the ONLY ones that have worked!!!

I have previously tweezed my own eyebrows, waxed, and for the last two years gotten them threaded every week. But paying $14 every week on my eyebrows. And while I do a pretty good job of tweezing my eyebrows, I hate spending the time it takes to pluck all those tiny hairs. So I tried purchasing a box of these mini wax strips. While I don't have very hairy eyebrows, I am fair skinned with black eyebrows so "eyebrow stubble" is easy to see, at least to me. Here are my thoughts:

Pros:
- It does remove the tiny hairs
- No heating required
- The clear strips are very helpful in placing the wax
- The wax stays in place once you press down so you don't have to worry about accidently ripping hair out that you didn't mean to

Cons:
- It does not do a good job of removing the more noticable, coarser hairs. I have to spend a few minutes after waxing with these strips tweezing the remaining hair, and shaping the arches.
- The wax strip is pretty long in proportion to the eyebrow, so it takes a bit of skill if you want to wax a very specific area. You have to plan out where the rest of the line will go.
- The predotted lines where they tell you to cut are not practical. The strips you end up cutting are so large at times you will be looking through plastic while waxing your eyebrows. However, this can be fixed by simply cutting thinner strips to make your waxing more precise.

I personally didn't feel the need to use the azulene oil, so I can't comment on that. Also, one box lasted me three eyebrow waxes.

    Comments about Parissa Wax Strips Mini Eyebrow Design, 16 ea:

    This product is easy to use and actually does a good job of getting all of the hair under the wax strip.

    HOWEVER, the strips are tiny and not a useful shape (I had envisioned arched strips that approximated the curve of the eyebrow). The wax area is rectanglar shaped about .25" x 1". I have to use multiple strips on each brow - they just don't cover the area that I need.

    Best wax strips for eyebrows

          Comments about Parissa Wax Strips Mini Eyebrow Design, 16 ea:

          I've tried all the eyebrow wax strips I can get my hands on and these are by far the best. They aren't perfect but I still give them 5 stars.

          In the last box of these I bought, the line of wax was a bit thinner than with the previous box and for my super thick eyebrows I like the thicker line but I can manage. Also, sometimes these strips have worked too well leaving my somewhat sensitive skin a litte red for a few days. It takes a little practice to figure out how to best place the strips but they give you the needed control to get the look you want.

              I have been using these strips to wax my eyebrows (and other facial hair that shall not be mentioned) and it has been an easy no-mess activity. The strips are small enough that you can't really do any damage to the brow line unless you try very hard. The azulene oil included washes away all traces of the wax so there's no mess. They're easy to peel and well worth the cost compare to going to the salon as I did before. Great product.

                Use this to do my wife's eyebrows. Works really well. Easy to work with. Works well with finer hair, but may not do so well with stubble that is stronger and more resistant, as it provides plenty of grip, but not as much grip as liquid hot wax does. Doesn't irritate the skin as much as hot wax. Good control for shaping the eyebrow, but requires using a fair number of strips to get everything over both eyes. One box is usually enough, but you may want to have two in case you need one or two more strips to complete the job.

                Very easy to use, does not require heating, but will leave wax on your face if you do not pull the strip off properly. Includes soothing oil that also removes excess wax. Highly recommend if you are located in a remote area without a salon or don't want to spend the extra money.

                      I used Nads because I like the natural products and the ease of washing off leftover wax. However, I bought Parissa because the strips are small and looked easier to use. Everything about these strips is great. The wax is in SMALL strips which is great since my eyelashes kept sticking to the wax in other brands' larger strips. I also love that the kit comes with a little bottle of unscented oil to remove any residue. Since the strips are clear and the wax is whitish, you can actually see where the wax is going for an easier way to shape your brows. The whole process was considerably less painful than others too. All in all, I love this product.
