Review: Persian Cold Wax
There is no scent.
Take the provided popsicle stick and twirl up some wax then apply where hair needs to be removed. Then take the fabric strip and cover the wax area. Pull the strip parallel to your skin surface in the opposition direction of the way most of your hair grows. Best to be pulled in one quick motion.
I've tried warming the wax in microwave for easier pick up but it kinda ruins the wax, so I don't recommend it. I feel the wax becomes less adhesive.
Great packaging. There is not better method of putting the wax in. It comes with the wax, two different shaped wooden sticks for application and plenty of reusable, washable fabric strips.
Thoughts / Results:
The wax really does the job well. It fixed my dark armpits problem. I haven't noticed any ingrown hairs. Prior to using wax, I read out way to get rid of dark armpits like using a exfoliating product with beads in it, loofah, and moisturizing after showering. These methods did lighten the armpits a bit but not by much. Wax really does the job well, it easily pulls those hairs out of the pores. Much better than pucking one by one. The one flaw is that sometimes, the wax can't get to all the hair. Probably due to the short hair length, which is forgivable as the wax can't grab a tight enough how to yank out the barely coming out hairs. I usually wait until my hair is about 0.3 - 0.5 cm long before I wax.
My legs aren't hair so I don't really bother with them. My leg hair is barely noticeable.
Another good thing is its all natural ingredients.
$16.99 CAD (I believe this was the cost I paid at Shoppers Drug Mart)
