FAQ

In the US, you can find Flamingo at Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Costco, as well as a handful of grocery stores including Kroger, Wegmans, Meijer, HyVee, Harris Teeter, HEB, Stop & Shop, Hannaford, Giant. Flamingo is also available for delivery alongside your groceries with Instacart. In Canada, you can find us at Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart. We recommend contacting your local store if you’re looking for a specific product!
Flamingo was the first brand to be launched through Harry’s Labs. We leveraged the Harry’s factory and product expertise to design a suite of easy, elevated, highly effective body care.
We set aside 1% of sales to support nonprofits working to improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of women globally. We believe education and healing are core to having a strong relationship with your body. Learn more about our partners at shopflamingo.com/about.

Everyone’s shave routine and rate of hair growth is unique but generally we suggest changing your blade cartridge every 6-8 uses, or when you start to feel tugging or pulling as you shave.
To keep your razor in the best shape, store it upright, preferably in a dry place away from the shower spray. This is where a shower holder, included in our Shave Set, can help.
Make sure the suction cup and surface you’re sticking it to are both clean and free from debris. The smoother the surface, the better. Pro tip: add a little emollient (we like Vaseline) around the rim of the suction cup to help it stick, and “burp” the suction cup to remove air.
Yes, Harry’s blades can be used on Flamingo handles and Flamingo blades can also be used on Harry’s handles.
Hold the base of the handle with the Flamingo logo facing up. Pinch the left and right sides of the rigid plastic connector below the handle with your thumb and forefinger. Slide that connector piece away from the handle. The blade cartridge should pop off easily.
We made some upgrades! Our razor still has 5 sharp stainless blades, but now they’re surrounded by a water-activated 360° comfort system to help protect skin from irritation. We also introduced new handle colors: Lilac, Sage, Rose, and Papaya.
If you still have your metal-accented handle or lots of original Flamingo blades on hand, don’t worry; the new blades fit any Flamingo handle, and the new handle fits any Flamingo blades.
Currently the updated razor is only available on shopflamingo.com, but you’ll start seeing it pop up at our retailers throughout the winter and spring of 2022. Follow @meetflamingo on Instagram for the latest news.
Wax results last up to four weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows.
Everyone’s skin is different, so we recommend spot testing before use. Some skincare products like retinols, chemical exfoliants, alcohol based toners, and products containing ascorbic acid can increase skin’s sensitivity to wax, so stop use for a few days before waxing. Check out shopflamingo.com/wax for more information and step-by-step instructions.
Make sure your skin is clean and dry, then pull strips slowly apart to ensure even wax distribution. Massage the strip into your skin after applying. Pull your skin taut, then pull the wax strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth quickly and close to the skin. Visit shopflamingo.com/wax for step-by-step tutorials.
Each wax strip can be used for 2-4 pulls, depending on the thickness and density of your hair. Post-wax cloths are intended to be used for one waxing session; however, one cloth can be used on multiple areas of the body during the same waxing session.
We wouldn’t recommend it. Our Pubic Hair Wax Kit can be used externally on your vulva and inner thighs, but it’s not meant for internal use (translation: don’t use it on your labia and anus!).
Yes, plenty! Check out shopflamingo.com/wax for tips, tricks, and step-by-step instructions on how to wax.
We formulated Ingrown Spot Treatment for external use, such as underarms and the pubic area. It can also be used on your face, though we recommend doing a spot test before use since facial skin is more sensitive. Also: always use SPF, especially after an exfoliating treatment like this one!
When applied twice daily, you should start seeing results within a few days.
Exfoliation actually preps skin for better hydration. All of our body moisturizers contain white willow bark, a gentle source of salicylic acid that exfoliates for softer skin. Combining exfoliation with our products’ moisturizing ingredients gives you two skin-softening benefits in one!
We recommend applying Light Hydrating Spray while standing on a non-slippery surface, like a bath mat or towel. Hold it a couple of inches away from skin (think: putting on spray sunscreen) and apply with abandon. No need to rub it in.
The squalane in our body moisturizers is plant-derived (we get ours from sugarcane).
Sometimes this happens if you shake the Foaming Shave Gel canister before use. It arrives pressurized, so there’s no need to do that before using. The best way to dispense the shave gel is to gently press the nozzle and spray it into your cupped hand, then apply where you want to shave.
All of our products are vegan aside from our wax strips, which contain beeswax.
All of our products are cruelty free and have never been tested on animals.
