I found it worked well!!
on 6 April 2014
Interesting to see the negative reviews of this product - I was quite pleased with it. I found it removed hair efficiently from small, fiddly areas like the "monobrow" section between the eyebrows, or the range of untidy stragglers I tend to get above and below my natural eyebrow line. I've tried facial wax strips on those areas before and they're a little too big to do the job with any kind of precision. The beauty of this stuff is that you can daub it wherever it's needed, and then all you do is press one of the provided fabric strips down hard over the top and rip off quickly against the direction of hair grtowth. It worked fine!!!
A couple of tips - make sure the wax is heated properly (test it's not too hot on your wrist first) and put it back in the hot water between waxings so it doesn't cool down and get too solid to use. Press the fabric strip down firmly and stroke it firmly a few times before ripping it off. Rip it off fast - you catch more hair that way. Don't get water in it. And don't expec to get it 100% right the first time - I found it took 2 or 3 tries before I'd learned the knack.
I've given it 4 stars instead of 5 purely because it has fairly limited usefulness - It wouldn't be so ideal for larger areas like upper lip or chin. I don't really need to attack those very often as my facial hair is fine and blonde, but a prewaxed strip would probably be a better bet. I'll certainly buy this again to use on my eyebrows though - it's a lot less trouble than tweezing!
