Arrow Product details

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.


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.


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.

IMPRESSED! I'm not sure if my review will be approved to appear on the website but here goes...... I was actually able to give myself a "Hollywood Wax" with these strips. I don't buy talc so had none in the house to use but I did have some gluten free flour in my cupboard!!!! Was able to use that just as talc. I applied a bit of the "talc" between each use of strips & achieved a really good & pretty painless result! This may sound really weird or even just too good to be true, however it IS true & having walked by a salon today who were advertising their Hollywood Waxes for £29 (not to mention having a stranger doing something so personal!) I'd gladly flour up & strip away using these cheap n cheerful wax strips again & again. No irritation. No embarrassment. No fortune spent! VERY pleased. I haven't used the strips for anything else & that waxing did use up all the strips from one pack but still a bargain! November 6, 2015
OK, not great I found each strip only really worked the first go, maybe second. Just about got 2 lower legs done to a presentable level but far from perfect! Just not very strong, probably wouldn't buy again as didn't really do the job. On the plus side easy to use, no real mess and cheap . August 9, 2016
Awful Tried these as they were on offer. Used my left off veet strips to start off and they were fine, then used the boots ones... My leg hair was rather long so know that wasn't the problem and not one single hair was pulled out on the strips after several attempts! Took them back and got a refund! October 9, 2016
