Our easy to use sensitive wax strips remove hair as short as 4mm resulting in silky smooth skin for up to 4 weeks. They remove hair right at the root and re-growth feels finer and softer. Formulated with moisturising vitamin E to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. Our moisturising finishing wipes contain wheatgerm oil to remove wax residue and soothe your skin.
How to use
1. Skin must be dry and free from all skincare products, make-up preparations or perspiration before treatment. Dusting the skin lightly with talcum powder before treatment can reduce the chance of the strips sticking to the skin and aid hair removal.
2. Rub the strip between your hands to warm, separate the two strips and smooth the wax directly onto the skin in the direction of hair growth.
DEPENDING ON USAGE, REFER TO THE APPROPRIATE SECTION.
3. Holding the skin taut with one hand, IMMEDIATELY pull the strip back on itself very quickly, i.e. in the opposite direction of hairgrowth.
DO NOT leave on the skin. DO NOT peel back cautiously.
If the strip is pulled back quickly and the skin held taut, the hairs will be removed and minimum discomfort caused.
4. Each strip is re-useable several times during a treatment. Following the first use simply fold the strip in half and warm between the palms of your hands for approximately 30 seconds. Continue to use until strip is saturated with hair. Do not store half used strips.
