I'm almost done with esthetician school, so I'm used to using a proper wax pot melter and good quality wax. I'm not ready to spend $100 on my own set so I thought I'd try this one. It melts great in the microwave, however I did drip a lot down the sides as I worked and I can only imagine it getting worse each time I use it. I bought this so I could do my own brazilian for the first time, being too shy to get it done. I only got the top bikini area done when the wax was too hard and I was not about to run to the kitchen and back to the bathroom. I have to say, as scared as I was, it barely hurt. No irritation on my sensitive skin either. When you pull the strip, pull against the hair growth as close to the skin as possible. If you pull straight up you will take off skin. It will HURT, and thats what creates embarrassing redness. Smaller patches also hurt less. The wax residue oil works fantastic also. I will buy this again, but the only downside is that it's not kept warm so I will eventually buy a wax pot warmer.

This is the best wax I've used so far, but it is messy. I prefer sugar waxes because the wax is water soluble, however they don't seem to work as well for my thick hair. Be careful though: if you let this wax cool too much and try to apply it, it will stay on your skin -- hurts like a you-know-what to get it off!

Comments about Sally Hansen Extra Strength All-Over Body Wax Hair Removal Kit, 1 ea:

This is very effective at getting the job done!
- It removes virtually all the hairs in one go. It may leave behind a few thin, fine hairs here and there, but those hairs are barely noticeable even by me, so I don't mind.
- The wax can take a little longer to heat in the microwave than what's stated on the box, but about 45-50 seconds of heating time still isn't bad.
- It doesn't smell bad at all.
- It can be a little messy, but then again, that's probably true of all hot wax products.
- The strips that come with the wax are very effective and easy to use. I just wish they packed more strips in the box! For my first box, I still had about 1/4 of the wax left but I ran out of strips.

  • Causes Breakouts
  • Difficult To Wash Off

Best Uses

  • Underarms

Comments about Sally Hansen Extra Strength All-Over Body Wax Hair Removal Kit, 1 ea:

I started out by using a little thick layer on one underarm, and no single hair came off but caused breakouts immediately. Then I used single layer on the other underarm which has less hair than the other underarm, most hair came off and also caused breakouts. Did not work on bikini area at all. For legs, worked on the first area that was applied to but caused bruise, then did not work at all on all other areas that were applied to but caused sever bruises. Now my legs between knees and ankles where I only dare to apply have sever bruises all over. Looks like this product is definitely way too strong for my legs. Finally, it's very messy and the oil coming with it was not enough to clean the wax residue. I'm so disappointed that I spent money to buy myself bruises and pain. I'm back to shaving!

    I've been using this wax for a while. I use it as an all-over-wax--as suggested. It's great, but wiping it off can be a nightmare (keep your cotton ball and oil close).

    Not a few experienced at home waxer, but still this product was a mess. The wax seemed to get everywhere, and when pulled off, half of the hair was still there.

      Comments about Sally Hansen Extra Strength All-Over Body Wax Hair Removal Kit, 1 ea:

      I've used one other brand of home wax (Gigi All Purpose Honee Microwave Formula) and Sally Hansen Extra Strength Body Wax is definitely superior. It's a creamy wax compared to what I'd been using and was actually a bit less sticky and definitely less messy. It smells WONDERFUL. It heated up quickly and stayed warm longer. I was able to use less wax because I could apply the wax, apply the strip, remove the strip, and continue to use the same strip, impregnated with wax, 2-3 more times before I had to reapply wax to my skin. The azulene oil is very effective, and I didn't have to use very much to get all the wax off. All this, and it was CHEAPER than my previous wax! The only thing I didn't love were the spatulas - they were rounded and I prefer slanted. I will DEFINITELY buy this wax again, and I HIGHLY recommend it!

      Comments about Sally Hansen Extra Strength All-Over Body Wax Hair Removal Kit, 1 ea:

      The product worked exactly as described. I'm a little surprised at a past reviewer who said the wax wouldn't wash off - the packaging and instructions are very clear that the wax WILL NOT wash off with soap and water, and that you must use the blue oil contained in the small bottle that comes in the package to remove excess wax. The oil is very effective at removing excess wax, and it will even help you remove the wax from floors or counter tops should you spill or drip.

      That said, it *is* a bit messy, simply because the wax isn't water soluble like many other Sally Hansen products. However, unlike many other Sally Hansen products, the wax does not rip off the top layer of your skin - the only thing that gets removed is the hair. I have *extremely* sensitive skin and eczema, and I have yet to have even one bump after using this wax.

      The messiness is the only bad part of this wax. I wish it was water soluble, but then it might not work as well as it does. I'd rather have to keep using that blue oil than a product that doesn't work like this one does.

          Stay Away from this Wax. Product is extremely sticky. It doesn't go after washing of several times. After using it i had to throw the bowl on which i put the wax to melt. And if it sticks on you floor, you can not remove it and it will spoil your floor...
