I love this stuff! It lets you quickly remove facial hair in the privacy of your own home in the same time they do at the salon, for less than half the cost. So for me, it saves time AND money! :)

Make sure you rub the strips enough before peeling them apart to generate enough heat and soften the wax (vigorously for a few seconds). When you apply to the area of hair removal, rub just as vigorously to, again, generate heat. Then hold the skin taught opposite the direction you're pulling in. General rule for any hair removal is to pull in the direction opposite of hair growth.

I would recommend this product specifically for your face (upper lip & eyebrows) & hairline. Maybe arms if your hair is fine. I haven't been able to successfully remove underarm hair with this product. It's difficult to hold the skin taught while you really only have one arm.

I've noticed complaints about wax being stuck on. I've always felt that the bottle of oil that comes with it is quite efective. I still have tons piled up from my previous boxes since I hardly use it. But, if you do end up not having enough that comes with it, even olive oil will remove it effectively.

Hopefully this helps those that want to give it a try!

I thought I would buy these as it seemed like an easy way to start waxing. I first tried it on my upper lip. It stung pretty badly for a few minutes and my lip automatically felt hairless, so I assumed these things worked well. I washed my face a few times to try to get the waxy gunk off but finally gave up and left it there. The next day I saw myself in the sunlight to find all the hairs the waxing missed.
Next, I tried my bikini line. It didn't hurt as bad as the lip did because I was expecting it this time. This pack didn't come with nearly enough large strips, so I got one and a half sides done before running out of the big strips. I shaved afterward because, once again, lots of hairs were still left. And again, I couldn't wash the wax residue off and was sticking to myself all night.
Next I used one of the small strips to on my toes. I only have a few hairs on them and figured that bending my toe should be really effective at pulling the skin taught. To my surprise, using the strips twice on each big toe couldn't even get the few measley hairs off! Also, as before, I had to walk around with that waxy junk on my skin all day!
Bottom line: pass on these.

      These are awful. They changed their formula several years ago. My mom, sister and I used to use these exclusively. Many years ago, they decided to fix something that wasn't broken and changed everything about these wax strips. After trying them several times, we'd be stuck with patches of wax still on our face, horrible breakouts, and if you did manage to actually get the wax off when you ripped, it would take skin but the hair would still be there. They are AWFUL. Bring back the cold wax strips of the early 90's! They were the best!

          Comments about Sally Hansen Hair Remover Wax Strip Kit For Face, Eyebrows & Bikini Area, 1 box:

          I usually love all of Sally Hansen's products but this one was a real let down. All of the strips were dried out and just cracked when you pulled the sheets apart. There was hardly anything sticky about them so they couldn't do their job and the whole box ended up in the trash. I did like the finishing oil that came with it so I kept that to you with the Surgi strips that I normally buy and will now not stray from again.

            This product doesn't work on short hair. It doesn't work on stubborn, coarse hair. The results don't even last for 2 weeks. Hair come back darker and coarser...
            Hopeless product. Doesn't keep up to its name. Doesn't work the way it claims to.

                I have used waxing kits before, I had never tried this brand before. I don't normally get massive breakouts, I followed the directions and ended up with the worst acne breakout I have ever had in my life. It occurred only on the spots where I waxed on my face. I will never buy this product again. If you decide to try it I would highly suggest doing it the night before a weekend that you don't have any plans....

                This did not work at all on my underarms. I use it on my finer hairs on my face and it gets all the hairs but it doesn't pull the hair from the root, it just breaks the hairs. The strips are easy to use and often more than I need so I just cut them up. I experienced no pain using this product and the leftover wax is easy to remove with the provided oil.

                  This thing works great! I'm glad I tried it. I will use only this brand from now on. It hardly leaves wax on my skin, but if it did, the oil that came with it would take it off like a charm. It leaves the newly waxed-area so smooth and clean. Very happy with my new-try purchase.
