5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, But needs the right technique., 26 July 2013
This review is from: Veet Warm Wax Microwavable Jar - Essential Oils - 250 ml (Personal Care)
This product works really well, but needs to be used the correct way. After heating the jar, it takes at least 30-45min to cool back down to a usable temperature, and it can be tempting to use it too hot. The indicator on the spatula is not that useful, so my advice is to test on your inner arm and at the time the wax is bearable on the skin...go away for 10-15min. The first time I used it, it was too hot - not hot enough to burn me or cause pain, but the indicator still read NO!. This is not only bad for the skin, but the wax does not grip the hair as well, and the result I got was about the same as a cold wax strip (disappointing). The second time, I left it until it was only just warm on the skin - I could barely notice the temperature on my leg - and it pulled out every single hair. The spatula is very useful, it is concave on one side to allow spreading the wax onto the leg, which isn't a flat surface. I can see how some reviewers were confused on how to use it, but there are instructions in the pack. The water solubility of the wax is fantastic, and a baby wipe can easily remove any spots of wax that get on anything. Lastly, my legs aren't irritated at all by this product, unlike with the Veet wax strips, and the pain is nowhere near as bad.
