I've been using this system for years now and nothing beats it. You have to purchase the plug in heating unit which wasn't expensive and lasts for years (still on my original). I originally bought it because this looked so similar to my beauty salons system. You let it heat up for about 20 minutes and wax away. I only use on my legs and bikini area. I would say its 95-98% effective with getting the hair removed and whats left I tweeze. The hair stays gone for nearly two weeks. Ive tried other waxes when my drugstore stopped carrying these refills including sugar waxing and a hardening wax -this is by far the most effective and least painful of the waxing systems. VERY glad when I saw the refills on drugstore.com!

This works well when I can get it to work. The problem seems to be with the paper strips that more often than not end up ripping and stuck to my leg instead of coming off with the wax. I spend more time scraping it off my leg than anything. Clean-up is also difficult, does not wash off with soap and water. I won't use this product again.

    Easy to roll on with no wax drips anywhere. I use my own cloth strips -- double the length and width of the ones supplied so hair removal is very quick. I've been using this product for 25 years and anything else I tried was not satisfactory.

      I love it...Keep it in stock please. Both my daughter and I use it. We use it on our underarms, legs and bikini line. Hurts to use but wouldn't anything that's pulling your hair out from the roots?! Much better than shaving. Cleaner and smoother skin.

          I have been using this product for over 25 years (it has changed names a number of times) and now my teenaged daughters use it, too! Great alternative to expensive salon waxings. Leaves this family hair-free for a couple of weeks at a time. Just be warned - this product only works well when used in a room at the correct temperature (and when your skin is not too hot or cold). Too hot, and the wax will stick to your skin and be impossible to get off. Too cold, and the wax will harden on your skin before you have a chance to pull it off. This makes winter and summer waxing very tricky. Lucky users will have climate controlled homes. Don't get frustrated if this happens to you. It really is a great product.

              I've used this system for 26 years and would never go back to shaving. Gone are the ankle and shin cuts and waxing is good for about a month depending on individual growth. Hair definitely grows slower the more one waxes since it pulls it out by the roots and after 26 years, it's sometimes months between necessary waxings. It also leaves flawless, smooth skin, with no dark root marks like with shaving. Follow instructions and don't be discouraged if the first couple of times you have wax all over the place and technique is out the window. It absolutely takes practice but is worth the effort. Buy a companion wax remover lotion made for heat waxing systems and slather it on liberally after waxing. It dissolves any wax residue and calms the prickling sensations. I almost threw the kit away after the first attempt but I'm SO glad I didn't. Allow about an hour to do underarms and lower legs and avoid doing it in humidity. Also lightly powder area to be waxed to give wax more to adhere to; you'll get a much better result. Works well on upper lip with very little discomfort. Good luck!

                For near over 30 yrs I've used this easy roll on method of waxing. Trust me, with my leg inseam of 34- 35 inches I'd be hours in a salon with them using a spatula to wax me! Drugstore.com is one of the few places to find Surgi roll on and at the lowest prices which keeps me coming back. I would have given it a 5 but my last purchase of 10 boxes had 2 in which the containers were over filled with wax and didn't fit into the wax heater. It wasn't worth my time or haslle to return the 2 so I threw them away.

                  I have used this hair removal system for almost 30 years. Now I have my teenaged daughters waxing their legs, too. My 16 year old can even do it herself. It is the easiest, most effective method of hair removal for legs that I have ever found, and I have tried it all. If you can't afford laser hair removal, but don't want to shave your legs every day, this is the process/product for you. I have very hairy legs and this keeps them smooth for 2-3 weeks at a time. It doesn't last forever, but it's way better than shaving every day! The only glitch when using it is that the temperature in the room needs to be carefully controlled. Too hot and the wax sticks all over the place. Too cold and the wax hardens on your legs and is difficult to remove. Be sure to be warm enough in the winter and cool enough in the summer for this product to be effective. Otherwise, you will surely be frustrated.

                  This works well when I can get it to work. The problem seems to be with the paper strips that more often than not end up ripping and stuck to my leg instead of coming off with the wax. I spend more time scraping it off my leg than anything.
