Parissa, you have gained a new and loyal customer. For the last 20 years I have spent money on estheticians for my waxing needs. With salons being closed during this time, I was desperate. I took a chance buying this kit, thinking that there was no way I would be able to achieve anywhere near the results I am used to. Yes, it was messy but clean up with the miraculous azulene oil was easy....and pain....what pain? Normally, I break out into a sweat when getting my brazilian wax done, and although it was not suggested that a first time do-it-yourselfer attempts a brazilian wax, as I said desperate times call for desperate measures. The pain was minimal, and waxing underarms and upper lip was a breeze, no pain! I even wondered if it had worked, and yes, the hair was gone! Wish I had found out about this years ago. FYI the warmer is essential in keeping the wax at the right temperature and if you have an induction stove, the little pot will not heat, I tried in my impatience, but before I knew it 30 minutes,later the wax was a bit too warm, I turned off the warmer and 5 minutes later, the temperature was perfect. The five minute on and five minutes off the warmer is the rule of thumb. To anyone hesitating, don't! If I, a very clumsy person can do it, you can too!
I absolutely love this product! I used to go to European Wax Center for all my waxing needs, but after accumulated visits, it got too expensive. So I started looking for waxes that were similar to the wax used at the European Wax Center. I found the Parissa hot wax to be very similar and loved the strip free aspect of it!! It gets the job done perfectly!! The only thing I recommend with this wax is to get the wax warmer that is sold separately, if you don’t have an electric stove. I say this because the other day, when I was heating up the hot wax, I used boiling water to melt the wax and it was a pain. I would get the wax warmer myself but it’s sold out :(.
Saw Parissa at the Women's Show in Toronto a couple of weeks ago and got a couple of samples. Tried one this morning on my upper lip. Wow! I will definitely get some. Glad it is available at the pharmacies. Thank you!
I love this wax, but I have two serious cons, the most major is the plastic jar, it is the only reason I’ve been looking for another waxing option, the second is kind of related, but this system seems it can only warm up with the electrical warmer which I have, but I don’t have an outlet in the only room I can wax in. So this means I have to squeeze into our tiny washroom and wax my legs on the counter, which hurts and is awkward. Other sugar based waxing systems have the option to be warmed in a pot of boiling water and stay in it during the waxing to keep the formula warm. I wouldn’t want to try this with this plastic jar, which is why the two requests are related. Please make this in a glass jar...otherwise, best wax I’ve ever used, easy to wash off too. Takes a small learning curve, I’ve found that having the wax really runny works for longer body hair, and having it just barely warm and really thick and gummy will remove incredibly short hair, but it’s a game of temperature. Another reason why I’d love to have a pot to warm it in, is then you can stick a cooking thermometer inside, learn your best temps for certain body areas and stop guessing. It has taken me a lot of practice to figure out how many minutes of warming it takes for the wax for each area of my body to get the best results. That’s the only reason I took a star down, if you make this jar in glass, and let us warm it in a pot, then we can not be mandated for electricity, be zero waste, and measure the temps
I have used waxes, bleach, creams for years do my upper lip. I have never been this impressed. I did creams until I realized hair would return in 4 days. Then I moved to wax strips, then to microwaveable wax. It was convenient and easy so I tuck with it. I recently move and no longer have a microwave so I ventured to try something different. I got the stove top wax. I have NEVER seen so much hair come off in one application. I now found my new obsession. And will never go back to my old reliables again.
I usually buy the wax that you have to warm up in the microwave, apply with stick and place cotton strip to remove. It was always messy, and time consuming. These strips were great. Place on, and remove. I was done two legs in half the time of the other method. I love this product. My new waxing strips from now on. Give it a try. I think you will like it too.
This pen is amazing! I did try it cold, but it's best if it's warmed so you can control the amount of wax that comes out and for accurate application. It's like getting your brows done professionally, but when you want!
I absolutely adore this wax. I usually gravitate towards hard strip-less wax which I stopped purchasing since I couldn't find any that were cruelty free. In fact, it was almost impossible to find a cruelty free wax, so when I found this one I was so excited. I was very skeptical with the instructions of applying the thinnest layer possible to remove the most amount of hair (opposite of hard wax), but was pleasantly surprised. I actually like this moreeee than the hard wax now! Applys warm, not hot- which is great. And when you pull it off it truly only pulls the hair, not the skin. I'm going to keep purchasing this in the future, so glad I found this brand!
I saw this on Facebook and I was a little worried.. but I really wanted to start waxing my underarms. Holy moly, this stuff works SO well! I had tried wax strips on my underarms before and they didn't work well. It was awesome to get everything in this pack, the wax warmer plate made it super easy to manage the hot wax. I also tried doing my upper lip and I was super pleased with the results.
