The battle of unwanted hair is a constant one that women wage. Women everywhere are always looking for great products to use, to save costs, and do their own beautifying tricks from home. Waxing, especially during the warmer months, can become really expensive. Some people will say that waxing at home is risky and messy, but home waxing kits have definitely evolved and improved over the years. Let’s have a look and see what’s available nowadays and which ones work best.
Quick and easy to use wax strips
Sally Hansen Insta Wax strips
These strips are super easy and convenient to use. You don’t need to warm them up at all, as they work just as is. It’s as simple as separating the strips, applying to the area, and pulling off. This product comes in two variants, one has larger strips and is more suitable for waxing the legs and bigger parts of the body. Your man might even want to use it to wax his back. The other variant, meanwhile, has smaller strips, which are for waxing the face, underarms, and bikini. You’ll find that it specifies on the box if it’s for the body or the face and bikini. These strips are gentle on your skin as they contain marula and coconut oils.
Nad’s Body Wax Strips
Another winning home kit option as they’re completely hassle-free. You’ll need to rub the strips between your hands to warm them up slightly but that’s about as much work as you’ll need to put in to use them. When tested on some subjects, they commented on how gentle it was on their skin and how it caused no irritation to the skin. Nad’s also has a Natural Hair Removal Gel Kit, which is equally popular and effective.
Best hot wax options
Gigi Mini Pro Waxing Kit
This kit is practically a mini-salon in your own home. It comes with everything you’ll need – the wax, warmer, pre-wax oil, spatulas, cloths, and a post-wax cooling gel. It even includes a DVD with instructions on how to use it. All you do is warm up the wax in the electric warmer, apply it to the desired area, and use one of the strips to rip the wax off. It may be a little messy the first time you use it, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be waxing like a pro.
Bliss Poetic Waxing Hair Removal Kit
This kit is a great choice if you prefer to use hard wax. All you’ll need is a microwave to warm up your wax and you’re ready to go. It comes with its own container to warm the wax up in the microwave so you don’t have to ruin one of your own bowls. It also comes with two spatulas, a bigger one for use on a larger surface area and a smaller one for smaller areas. What’s nice about this kit is that you don’t even need strips, you just peel the wax straight off with your fingers..
It’s very important to remember that you need to prep before you even attempt to wax at home. You need to make sure that your hair is at least a quarter of an inch long, otherwise the wax won’t grip well. Other than that, you’re good to go. Happy waxing!
