The moisturising finishing wipes contain wheatgerm oil to remove wax residue and soothe your skin.
How to use
Steps to silky smooth skin:
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. DEPENDING ON USAGE, REFER TO THE APPROPRIATE SECTION.
Soften the wax between the palms of your hands for approximately 30 seconds.
Peel off strip from backing sheet and smooth the wax strip firmly 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.
- Treat each side of your lip separately, press on one strip and pull back towards the centre, holding the skin taut with the other hand.
- Hair on the chin is usually lying sideways or downwards. Smooth strips and pull back towards your nose.
- Cut the strip to the appropriate shape. Pull back towards the nose.
- Smooth on strip and pull back towards the nose.
