Review: Sally Hansen hair remover wax strip kit

Hey Everyone! Van asked on my mini haul post how these wax strips were so I thought I would do a review to share. So, here it is. Hope you like!

What it claims: Nothing works quicker or lasts longer. Three simple steps. Pre-waxed strips, pre-cut for underarms, legs and body. Removes even stubborn hair for up to 8weeks. No microwave, no mess. Regrowth is less noticeable.

-European salon formula with soothing bisabolol
-Works on short hair
-Helps slow the appearance of regrowth
-Salon tested
-Dermatologist tested.

-Warm strip in hands
-Separate double sided strips
-Press on, pull off

Where you can buy it:
Walmart, Target, Kmart, Walgreens, CVS and anywhere else Sally Hansen products are sold.


My Rating:
5 Peace signs

The Good
: I LOVE these! I've been using them for about 8 years now and it's the only ones I'll use. I personally just use them for my eyebrows but it comes with 3 different size strips that can be used for other areas as well. The kit also includes an azulene finishing oil that removes the access wax and conditions the area. I follow the directions above but I add an extra step that really helps get a better result. Before heating it up in my hands I cut the strips in a sort of half moon shape that fits right under my brow, that way it gets all the little hairs. The strips are also large enough to get the full area but you can cut them down if they're too big. If you heat up the strips long enough in your hands you just need to press it down a few times along the whole area and then wait a minute for it to really set and grab on to all the hairs and pull it off. You can see right on the strip what you pulled off. For me I'm always amazed at the results. I have gotten my brows done at the salon and these strips do just as good.

The Bad:
I honestly can't find anything bad about this product but as far as regrowth goes it's different for everyone so since this product claims results up to 8 weeks I wouldn't say that's completely true.

These are definitely a must have for me! I would recommend them if you want a cheaper way keep up with your eyebrows (or other areas you might wanna wax).

If you have any questions on something I might have left out, let me know!

*This is just MY opinion/experience with this product. It may or may not work the same for you, you never know!*

I love this product!
I know it says you can use these anywhere, & believe me, I've tried...but these are much more succesful just on the face/eyebrows, elsewhere doesn't go as easy, haha :D

Still a great product, and very quick & easy.

LOL, I always look at the strip once I pull it off amazed at all the little hairs that got pulled up!

Great to see a positive review!

I've never tried any of that waxing stuff. Do you just apply it & rip it off? Does it hurt?
