Love this product, very refreshing after waxing and removes residual wax.

The best

Been using Parissa now for at least a decade maybe longer. They are the best wax strips on the market. Be sure to rub in your hands to warm up first. Ultrasoothe is my go-to to apply right after to completely take away and redness or irritation post wax

Strip-Free Hot Wax Set
Sara Hurley (Vancouver, CA)
Amazing and easy to use and NEAT

I love this set, I have been using Parissa’s hot wax for face for two years now. I love it! I recently got the set and it’s brilliant! It’s very easy to use, very tidy and my skin feels so much nicer after waxing.

Mini Pro Wax Warmer (120V)

Very slow at work- never reached the desired temperature

I used this warmer for a few times now. To warm up 100 grams wax, it took nearly 30 mins. After 30 mins too, I didn’t get a proper warmed up wax. I am not happy with the quality, but it nicely fits the wax cups. I am keeping this only to avoid the mess that happens while warming up the wax. Otherwise, it’s not a good product.

Hi Zoyee, I'm sorry you were unsatisfied with the Parissa Mini Pro Wax Warmer. Please contact us at hello@parissa.com for additional heating tips that can help with the heating times. Keeping the lid on during heating can substantially impact heating times - in addition, depending on the product, putting the product directly into the silicone dish will also improve heating times.

BUY IT!!!!

Amazing wax. It was out of stock for a long period of time and they came up with a new packaging and more amount of wax! God knows how I have waited for it to come back in stock. Been using this since 4 years now and just love it! Highly recommended!

Not impressed

I tried this for the first time after hearing so many great reviews on it. But I am not impressed. It was still very sticky and stringy after taking the strip off. Even though I put a thin layer like the instructions say. Hardly any hair came out too and I did different areas such as my bikini area, my thigh, my calf, and armpit and only had 4 hairs come out on my calf. I’m so upset too because I purchased this with high hopes and I was let down.

Hi Cassandra, Thank you for your feedback. All our products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so please contact us at hello@parissa.com so we can assist you better. We want to make sure you find a solution that works for you. Parissa Organic Sugar Wax is a great product, and is fabulous for sensitive skin, but for some areas, like the bikini or underarm, where hair can be more coarse, it may be less effective depending on your historical method of hair removal. We have a variety products that may be better suited for you, so let's connect to get you something that's perfect for your needs. Looking forward to hearing form you.

The wax is so easy to use! Love it

Face & Lip Wax Strips

These worked great

I have never had to wax my lip- and was really thrilled that these were so easy to use.

Amazing wax strips

They are easy to use and perfect when you are on a trip and do not have much time to wax.

Shrinkflation strike again :(

Great product, like really great, but they got hit by the shrinkflation bug.

Thank you for the review, TH! We are surprised by your comments as now we offer 25% more strips per box. There are now 20 (10 x double sided) wax strips per box, whereas before there was only 16 (8 double sided strips). If you prefer slighly larger strips, we do offer the Parissa Bikini and Underarm Wax Strips where the Wax Strips are larger sized.

New new wax recipe?

I received my replacement warm wax kit after sharing the results of two recent batches of the product that no longer removed leg hair at all. I'm happy to share that this latest recipe was very effective - just as good as it's been in prior years. I hope this new recipe sticks as I have relied on your product for years!

New oil has smell

I been using Parissa for a very long time from Hot wax and now the wax strips.
But since they change the oil and smells is bad. I don’t want to purchase now. I like the old blue oil better. Please bring back the BLUE OIL fragrance free.

Hi MM,
Thank you for your feedback. Quality and guaraneed performance are important to us at Parissa. I'm sorry you had a poor experience with the Parissa Ultra Soothe Oil in your Parissa Wax Strips. Since we use only high quality, natural ingredients, the freshness of the product is very important. If the aftercare oil with your product has a strange smell, it is likely that the product you purchased was old. Please contact us at hello@parissa.com so we can send you a replacement. Regarding your love for the blue Parissa Azulene Oil, please note that this product is available on parissa.com. Please check this link: https://parissa.com/collections/professional-sizes/products/professional-azulene-oil
We look forward to hearing from you.
Regards,
Parissa Customer Care

. Can’t do without it!

This is the only product I’ve found effectively removes the redness around my nose and on my cheeks. Can’t do without it!

Great products

I finally had a chance to use the wax melter and it's great. The container of wax I have (from a different brand) doesn't fit in the melter, but it was easy enough to heat it up and pour it into the silicone liner, and it kept the wax the right temperature the whole time, which was so nice!

The azulene oil is a must after waxing as it helps prevent ingrown hairs. I'm sad they took it out of body sugar kits in Canada (and also, they stopped selling body sugar kits as far as I know). Glad to be able to buy them online!

Hello Kelsey, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear our products worked well for you!

SO EASY AND CONVENIENT!

Wow, so glad this product exists. I bought this to wax my legs and it has been so much easier than using a stick lol also, the strips are reusable which earns eco-friendly points in my book! An easy way to clean the dispenser and the strips is to leave them in warm-ish water and the sugar will come right off. Then just leave to dry and put away!

Very nice kit, the skin after is very smooth and clean.

Exfoliating Konjac Sponge
S.O. (Richmond Hill, CA)
Great Sponge

I received the Exfoliating Konjac Sponge for free in exchange for my review. At first I was a little wary about using something on my skin made with walnut shells, but I needn't have worried. I have used the sponge several times, and each time it has been very gentle on my skin without leaving any scratches or redness. I have even used the sponge on my face. My skin feels soft and smooth after each use, and ready for my moisturizer. I love that the sponge even comes with a hanging string, so it will dry out between uses.

Love this sponge!

I’m prone to KP on my arms and I’m always looking for something to help me exfoliate and this little sponge is fantastic. It softens up just the right amount and I use it with a SA scrub to help my KP. What a great combination! I got this sponge as a sample but I’m so happy I got to try it as I would not have known about it if I hadn’t!!

Hi Sara!

Thank you for your review; we are so happy to hear that it has helped! We appreciate your feedback!

This product did not work for me, it barley remove hair, unlike other products that would completely remove all the hair with one application.

Exfoliating Konjac Sponge

Exfoliates skin leaving it soft and smooth.

This wonderful Konjac sponge is a great way to gently exfoliate your skin. Using konjac root powder and walnut this helps buff away dead skin leaving it feeling so soft and smooth. As soon as you soak the sponge in water it softens. It works well with body wash lathering nicely and helps reduce ingrown hairs.

One side is less abrasive than the other. I use that one where skin tends to be more tough. On the bottom of my feet, knees and elbows. This sponge is made of 100% organic and natural ingredients and is biodegradable.

We're delighted to hear that you found our Konjac sponge to be an effective and gentle exfoliator, leaving your skin soft and smooth. Thank you for sharing your positive experience with our product!

Konjac walnut sponge - yes please !!

Who would have thought that a Konjac /walnut sponge would exfoliate and make my skin shine!! This sponge is very deceiving, at first touch it’s hard and feels like it would be very uncomfortable to use WRONG !! After wetting it and applying some body soap and rubbing my skin it became very soft yet firm enough for exfoliating. I also noticed that my skin was more receptive to the body lotion I apply for dry damaged skin. I did receive this Konjac Sponge free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Parissa

Hi Tammy!

We're delighted you enjoyed our Exfoliating Konjac Sponge! We appreciate your honest review, and we are happy to hear that your skin was more receptive to body lotion! Thank you for trying our product!

So Effective

This product was gifted to me by Parissa for my honest review. This was so shrunk up and hard when it arrived. I was pleased with its transition once it was wet. It takes a about 2 minutes for this to get totally soft from the water it absorbs. This is a perfect size for my hand to hold onto without unreasonably stretch my fingers out!. There's no effort involved in using this as it does the work for you. It's just rough enough to slough my dead skin but it doesn't feel abrasive. This absolutely made my skin feel much more soft and silky.
I know with its use, my skin will be better prepped for the next time I wax! And, when I'm done with it theres no storage issues has it has a handy string to hang it by. I love that is is totally natural & organic so I feel good about using it.
I certainly do recommend this product. These opinions are strictly mine and not influenced by anyone.
