this stuff is not water soluble so you can't just wash it off in a hot shower like some other products, but that is what the azulene finishing oil is included for! i keep a wet wipe next to me while waxing and when i'm ready to clean the leftover wax from an area, i simply apply some of the oil to the wet wipe and it comes right off. this stuff is a purple sticky mess, but as long as you keep the oil handy and be sure to put an old sheet or something under you while waxing, there should be no problems.

I bought this product for use on my bikini line. The wax was incredibly sticky, like honey. When I attempted to remove it using the strips, the pain was agonizing, and half of the product was still left behind - it stuck like glue to my skin. I followed the instructions precisely, but found this wax to be horribly ineffective. Within 10 minutes of attempting to use it, I gave up and tossed it in the trash. And this is highly unlike me - I am the type of person who will use up a product that I'm not crazy about, simply to get my money's worth. I would never buy this product again. Don't waste your money! For at-home waxing, I prefer Nair Salon Divine (also sold here on drugstore.com). It's fabulous.

    1) make sure your hair is appropriate length. if too long, trim it. if too short, don't bother for a few days and let it grow.
    2) follow heating directions for 60seconds. test on wrist for appropriate temperature.
    3) use the OIL included in the kit to remove all residue. there will be residue. this is not a water based formula.
    4)most importantly: remember that paying a professonal vs. doing it yourself are two very different things.
    5) if all of the above are followed and understood, this can work wonders.

    I won't use alternatives at home, but on occasion I do wish that there was a good salon nearby and my lady was in Soho vs. Wall St.

    Comments about Sally Hansen Spa Body Wax Hair Removal Kit, Lavender, 1 ea:

    I've used all kinds of other waxes and sugars, and I must admit I love this the most. It is like sugaring in the fact that your skin doesn't get tugged when you pull the strip off. It is like traditional wax in the fact that it grabs every hair out.

    It is very creamy and pliable so application was easy if you're careful to only apply a small amount at a time and spread really thinly.

    This is after all a wax, so you can't wash it off with water, you have to use oil. And if you don't know what you're doing, wax will get all over the place and you will get frustrated.

    I really like this product though, since I've waxed several times and have gotten the process down so it was not bad at all.

          I ordered this before ever talking to a "professional" waxer. Just be careful and make sure you know what you are doing before you attempt waxing with any kit. This one needs a video guide.

            Used this before. Loved it but could not find in stores. Tried similar (microwave) waxes. None worked as well. So happy to find it again. Easy to use. great product. Not terribly "sticky" but does the job better than any others I've used.

              Sally Hansen makes several different at-home wax kits and surprisingly, they all have different waxes. This one is effective, fragrant-smelling, and easy to wash off. I tried another kit (the "Brazilian Bikini Wax" one), and the wax was crusty and ineffective... like putting Elmer's Glue on my legs... ugh! This lavender stuff is the only at-home wax I'll ever use. If they discontinue this, I'm back to the spa.

                I used this product for a bikini wax (more than just the "line"). I now know why people pay to have someone else do it for you. I was trying to save money (it cost me $70 to get a good "full" bikini wax in a salon). This product was too messy for that area. My hands became unbearably sticky; I couldn't "smooth" the paper down. It dribbled everywhere. As it cooled it was harder to work with and I had to keep reheating the jar. You also have to hold the skin very taut or it will rip your skin and bruise it (this was in the instructions, but still was difficult to do in a small area). Wax got on the floor and counter top. There wasn't anything in the instructions that said how to remove wax. I tried rubbing alcohol, soap and eventually just tried the skin oil they included which made the floor slippery. It was not fun. Maybe it is better for a different area such as legs. It was just so messy and impractical. Lesson learned :-)

                  I've been using this particular wax for a few years. It's smell is pleasant, and the oil that you can use after waxing is really soothing. I don't find the wax any stickier or messier than any other wax used for hair removal. It has to be sticky to cling to your hair, and because of that a mess could ensue but self-waxing at home definitely takes some trial and error. Just make sure to rub the strip well after you apply it and give it enough time to rest before removing(that was my mistake when I did it for the first time and it was miserable!). Also make sure hair isn't too long, or too short. I'd say a quarter of an inch is perfect.
