THE WAX GUIDE
WAX ON, HAIR OFF
Waxing works by removing hair from the root, which means you’ll be smoother for longer. Our strips are made with a soft, gel wax (from Spain!) that can grip even the finest, shortest and spikiest of hairs.
They’re gentle enough to remove hair from your face yet strong enough for larger areas like your legs or back. Dermatologist tested, our formula is safe for all skin and hair types.
MAXIMIZE YOUR WAX
BEFORE
  • Do a patch test or chat with your derm ahead of time, you know, just to be safe
  • Prep your skin by making sure it’s clean and dry
  • Hair should be at least 1.5mm long
DURING
  • Firmly smooth strip down in the direction of your hair growth
  • Deep breath in, deep breath out (repeat as necessary)
  • Pull skin taut & quickly pull the strip off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, staying as close to the skin’s surface as possible
AFTER
  • Take a moment to bask in your hair removal bravery (and no, it’s not weird to analyze your used strip)
  • Remove stickiness, soothe skin with our post-wax essentials
  • Repeat the above steps on surrounding hairy areas

Always pull away in the opposite direction of the way that your hair grows. And pull quickly.
