I can not use honey wax on my upper lip, it rips my skin off. This is the only wax I can use, and it is not messy like honey wax..easy to use. It's hard to find and only this company sells it. I like that I can use in my own home when ever I want. I still have use a tweezer after, but it pretty much does the job. Just put a cube in a warmer within 5 mins it's ready to use. I've tried every brand....including honey wax again for sensitive skin...it's doesn't work...still rips my skin.

I have been using this product for 30 years on my face and bikini area. I generally get 5-7 uses out of one box and purchase several at a time so I don't have to buy it very often.

Just opened a brand new box this morning and noticed it wouldn't melt smoothly. Normally a whole box melts in 4 minutes in the microwave. 10 minutes later and I stirred it and noticed it looked like someone added baby powder to it.

As other reviewers noticed very grainy. It was horrible to apply and worse to remove. I couldn't grab it and pull like normal. Instead, I had to scrape it off!

I looked at the ingredients and noticed they added calcium carbonate to it. That's like adding a smashed up Tums antacid! Oddly, another box had calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate added. Horrible. I can't believe they ruined such a solid product. How could they think people wouldn't notice and don't they test the product before releasing it?

Comments about Zip Wax Hot Wax Hair Remover, 7 oz:

Used this for years. Had a problem with the wax years ago and it was corrected. Again, the wax isn't what it should be to be effective. Notified Drug Store.com, who stated they couldn't do quality inspection and gave me a number to call. Regretfully, it rings and no one ever answers. Shame, it was a good product. Will try to secure it from a different supplier??

      Comments about Zip Wax Hot Wax Hair Remover, 7 oz:

      The Original Formula is the best at-home wax available. It works on coarse and fine hair. I use it for unwanted facial hair and have been using it for years with good results. There is some irritation as with all hair removal procedures, but making sure the area is clean and dry and then moisturizing afterwards usually helps keep irritation to a minimum. New users should be careful about the temperature of the wax to avoid burns. If the wax appears too liquid, allow it to cool down a little before use.

              I have used Zip for many years. I wished they still provided the small pan to warm it up in! The small boxes now use a plastic applicator instead of wooden & they melt so I was happy to see this large box had a wooden one in it! Waxing yourself is NOT fun but it saves you money, time & you can do it in privacy!

                  Comments about Zip Wax Hot Wax Hair Remover, 7 oz:

                  I've been using zip wax for at least 20 years. The last new batch I bought was grainy and would not melt all the way. What used to be a 30 minute procedure took (literally) all day. I gave up after I ran out of time, not because I eventually got rid of the hair.

                  I looked online to see if anyone else had this problem and found that the formula had changed. Drugstore.com had an entry that said they had the original formula, so I quickly order some. Unfortunately, the one I received is not the original. It's the yucky, grainy stuff that is GOING RIGHT BACK!!!

                  I like this product better than the microwave products. But it is harder to find. No stores carry it anymore. You do have to be careful not to heat it too hot.
