I LOVE this and have used it for a couple of years now. If I am in a hurry I preheat the refill in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds and it is perfect. Then in between rolling the wax on and pulling it off with the strips I put the refill back into the heater. I just keep it next to me while I wax and keep putting the refill back in. I also pop the refill in upside down for short periods of time to keep the top heated and when the refill is running low. HOWEVER, I forgot it in there upside down and all of the wax ran out into the heater unit and I am now having to replace it (but after 2 years this isn't a big deal). When my refills run low I just save them and use the new refill for a while until it has some space and then microwave my low refill and pour it into the new one. I think this whole system works wonderfully and will use it for years to come. It isn't messy, I don't end up with wax all over my bedroom or bathroom and on my hair it gets most of it as long as I let it grow out first. Hope this is helpful to some people.

This product didn't really work well at all! The wax doesn't thin out in the 30-45 min time they tell you to wait. I even waited an hour and a half the second time I tried it to see if that would help and it was exactly the same result. I think the wax is too thin, it doesn't get all the hair, even if your hair is grown out longer than the unit recommends. Be ready to pick off remaining wax that the strips don't pick up. This product is also more painful because instead of going over the same area once or sometimes twice, get ready to have to do it multiple times! I wouldn't recommend this product at all.

Doesn't heat up wax properly

By DK in OC

Verified Buyer

Comments about SurgiCare Professional Salon System, Total Body & Face Roll-On Waxer, 1 ea:

I've had this wax hair removal system for over 10 years and I loved it! So convenient and easy to use and no mess. Saved me a fortune on salon waxes. But the unit stopped working so I ordered a new unit from Drugstore.com. Problem is it doesn't get hot enough to heat the wax up properly so when you try to roll the wax on your skin, it doesn't come out properly. Very frustrating. I returned it hoping it was just a defective unit. But the replacement unit they sent me had the same problem. Maybe the company had to change the temperature range? Either way, what's the point if it doesn't melt the wax so that you can use it. I'm returning the 2nd one as well and will just need to find something else.

    I unscrew the tops off and instead of using the roller heads, I just use an orange stick/popsicle stick to apply the wax.

    Be careful not to drip, because the wax will collect in the bottom.

    A great prodct overall.

    • Cord should swivel
    • Difficult to Clean

    • Weird cord placement

    Best Uses

    • Dry Use
    • Super brows upper lip

    Comments about SurgiCare Professional Salon System, Total Body & Face Roll-On Waxer, 1 ea:

    This particular unit is well-priced and will last long.
    The cord is not designed well - it will eventually develop tears and cause the unit to heat up intermittently, which can be dangerous.

    I might have a defective one b/c it heats very slowly and this is my fourth one over the last 15 years.

    A trusty good product will save you bundles of $ at the salon.

        This does not heat enough to melt the wax to a useful consistency. I have an old Clean & Easy machine in same design and it still works well. This is my second purchase of a new model and both do not melt the wax sufficiently. I think they have changed the inner workings and it is no longer a good purchase.

          I love this product except that the small waxer will not dispense wax or roll. So I have to open the large one and dip wax from it to do my face. I must have gotten a defective roller.

          Better than shaving

          By macarde

          from Seattle, WA

          Pros

          • Can fill with any wax
          • Easy to Use
          • Last longer than shaving
          • Less messy than others
          • Microwave for quicker use
          • Surprisingly not painful

          Cons

          • Can't find in stores
          • Difficult to Clean
          • Warmer slow

          Best Uses

          • Thicker hair

          Comments about SurgiCare Professional Salon System, Total Body & Face Roll-On Waxer, 1 ea:

          I have been using for over 5 years. I don't use the warmer anymore because i just microwave the wax. This roll-on is great because you just roll the wax on instead of scooping out of a wax container which is uneven and messy. It takes 15 minutes to do upper and lower legs. It does not leave your legs smooth like shaving, but the hair is gone way longer. I have thick hair and shaving gives stubble by end of day. Waxing then shaving leave legs very smooth for special occasions or weekends out where i can't shave. The only thing that works better is an epilady and that can be very very painful.

              I really wanted this product to work. It was good for its first use. After that, the rollers build up residue and it becomes difficult to use without tedious cleaning.

                  I was really excited to try this product but it was a disappointment for me. I let the wax heat up for about 45 minutes, and the first application worked fine and got out most hairs in the area. I put the wax back in the heater but it still cooled a lot and the wax hardened and I couldn't get the roller to roll (happened with both large and small cartridges). Eventually I quit with the roller and just tried to dump out wax and spread it on my skin, but even after leaving it in the heater for 5+ minutes I had trouble getting the wax out. I might try to use it again, but will probably heat in microwave and pour out wax instead of trying to use rollers.

                      This is the best product I have found so far for home waxing needs. You should 'not' use water for cleanup. Just use some baby oil to finish off. Pros:1) costs less (It was [$] seven years ago)2) easy to use3) portable4) does not leave residue4) heats in 30-40 minsCons:1) Takes 30-40 mins to heat upI have been extremely happy with this product
