Your body, your rules. Even though our wax strips are dermatologist tested and safe for all skin and hair types, stop if at any point you’re in pain you can’t breathe through. Normal pain could look like a wince, a single tear, or squeak.
Test all the components of our wax kit on the inside of your arm to ensure our formulas agree with you. Prep your skin by making sure it’s clean and dry with hairs at least 1.5mm or longer. Breathing is also important.
Feeling a little less than comfortable post-wax? Apply a cold compress to just waxed areas. Sit back and relax.
Always pull away in the opposite direction of the way that your hair grows. And pull quickly.
Soaking up the sun and waxing don’t mix. Don’t use strips for 24 hours before or after prolonged sun exposure.
Gently exfoliate skin a day or two before you wax to help to make the wax more effective & minimize ingrowns.
If you are using any retinoids, which typically make skin more sensitive, talk to your derm before you wax.
Wait 24 hours before using any alcohol-based products or deodorants on your just waxed areas.
Don’t wax immediately after bathing as your skin is likely to be more sensitive.
Feeling sticky? Use our Post-Wax Cloths or coconut oil to remove any excess wax from the skin.
Don’t use moisturizers or oils on your skin right before you wax. They can prevent the wax from gripping the hair.
Waxing your toe hairs? Our smaller Face Wax Strips are the perfect size for this area.
Keeping skin taut is the key to a successful (and less painful) wax. For your underarms, this means keeping your arm high above your head.
Avoid working out immediately post-wax. Sweat and friction can cause chafing or irritation in sensitive areas.
To minimize tension on the skin (and some of the pain), always pull the wax strip parallel to your skin, not up and away.
Waxing with friends is fun! Grab some snacks, turn on a movie, and help each other with those hard-to-reach places.
Keep in mind that it’s totally normal for skin to be red after you wax, even for a few hours. Factor this in when timing your wax.
If you’re waxing, avoid shaving the same area between sessions. Our wax formula works on hairs as short as 1.5mm, so you can wax as often as you need to!
