Highly recommended for dry hands and feet,
This review is from: ParaSpa Deluxe (Personal Care)I'v have owned my Paraffin Wax Bath for over a year now. It is very good when treating dry hands and feet but I haven't needed to use it for arthritic conditions so I am unable to comment.
Once set up the wax takes at least 3-4 hours to melt but once melted can be kept on 'standby' for future use. This makes it ideal should you need to use it at short notice. It is temperature controlled and I found the recommended setting a little too hot but this can be easily adjusted. If the wax feels too hot then I suggest you try 'dipping' a second time as this will protect you from your first application. This wax bath is large enough to accommodate the largest of feet so it also good for men too.
I very highly recommend using heated hand and feet mitts as they help the moisturising properties of the wax to penetrate more deeply. If using on feet don't forget to remove/file hard skin first for maximum benefit.
Word of warning: Be VERY careful when moving the bath when the wax has melted - I managed to slop wax over the edge of the bath onto my carpet. An absolute nightware to remove!
Otherwise, I really highly rate this wax bath particularly over smaller/cheaper models available in other stores.
