Our easy to use 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 rose-berry and 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
Please follow the instructions carefully and note any precautions.
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. Soften the wax between the palms of your hands for approximately 30 seconds.
DEPENDING ON USAGE, REFER TO THE APPROPRIATE SECTION.
Peel off strip from backing sheet and smooth the wax strip directly onto the skin in the direction of hair growth and ensure the strip is well adhered.
Holding the skin taut with one hand, IMMEDIATELY pull the strip back on itself very quickly, i.e. in the opposite direction of hair growth.
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.
Stretch the skin as much as possible by placing your hand behind your head. Remove hair as described. Carefully check the growth pattern of your hair before applying the strip, it may be necessary to remove a few hairs with tweezers afterwards.
DO NOT use underarm deodorant for 24 hours after hair removal.
Bend leg outwards and apply strips on the inside of the thigh in the same direction as hair growth.
Remove any wax residue using the moisturising finishing wipes provided.
