I actually heat mine in a pot of water on the stove because the wax just doesn't melt in the microwave. It works fine and the cup doesn't seem to melt.

It tells you not to do that. However, after the first use, mine will no longer melt in the microwave. I hold it with tongs in boiling water (so the cup doesn't touch the pan and melt). It's a real pain to do, but at least it does melt. I'm going to try next time to transfer the wax into the old metal cup from the stove-top kit they used to sell.

I don't think so. They used to make the older version, where you WOULD use a double boiler (water in one pan, and then another pot inside of that). The new wax needs higher heat, I think, and it takes multiple heating times (they don't recommend heating for more than60 seconds at a time) to get it to finally melt. I find it more time consuming.

It's not recommended as the cup is meant for microwaves and therefore the cup might melt.

It says right in the directions to NEVER heat it over a stove or any other heat source. Microwave only. I'd assume it's because it comes in a plastic cup. Hope that helps!

Nope. I love this wax and also never owned (or wanted to own) a microwave, but I bought one so I could keep using this wax and I was so disappointed--the wax doesn't heat evenly in the microwave, and you lose a lot more wax because it doesn't melt off the sides of the cup like the old one, and there's less wax in the microwavable cup than there was in the old metal cup. Don't waste your money on the microwave or the new microwavable wax.

You do have to use this a few times to get the hang of it. I once waxed too much of my eye brow! Not good! It is pretty easy to put some of the oil that they give you in the kit, on the wax and most comes off. Also, you can kind of pick it off with your fingernails. It isn't as bad as it sounds!

answer 5
You can try placing them in the freezer and cracking off the wax. I have never gone thru all the sticks, so I've never had this issue. You should wipe off excess wax in the cup to avoid a large amount on the stick. Once you reheat the wax and stir the stick in the cup, the wax will come off then as well.

answer 6
The sticks are for the application. You have to apply the wax thick enough so you can remove the wax with your fingers. You grab an end and pull it off. It's not like in the salon where they use that paper over the wax for removal. It's annoying at first but once I got the hang of it, it worked fine.

Good for Brazilian Waxing?
I have never waxed before and was wondering is this a good product for Brazilian waxing? Is it more painful than other waxes? Is this a preferred product to use? I am expecting it to be quite painful, but I am hoping it's not going to be as painful as going to a spa or something.

The pain of a brazilian depends on two things: the waxer and whether you use hard wax or soft wax. I just did my first at-home brazilian with this product (a hard wax) and it was nearly painless. It hurt a lot less than the waxes I've been getting lately at a spa that uses soft wax with the strips. The other waxer I used for years only used hard wax and now I understand why.

I think this product would work great for B. waxes. It pulls out every single hair, so no matter what it will hurt. I suggest trying it on another part of your body before doing the B. wax. Try your eyebrows or armpits first.

I only used it to wax the full front (not my backside as logistically this is impossible) and I would say it is only slightly less painful than the spa. It did a good job of grabbing all of the hairs and not the skin and it wasn't as hot as the spa wax which was nice. As far as post wax irritation, it was about the same as a professional wax- my skin was red for about 12 hours or so. I found that putting aloe vera gel with lidocaine on the area soothed it very well.

answer 6
My local spa uses this same type of wax for bikini and brazilian waxings, but it's an expensive wax compared to the other types. It's the best out there because it grips the entire hair and for some waxes, the hair has to be fairly grown out in order to work. This product will grab even the shortest hairs. You will always have a few strays, but use tweezers to get those. Some people don't handle pain as well when waxing themselves, so keep that in mind.

Yes, my friend and I have both used this for brazilians (separately and not together of course!). It works very well. Any brazilian is not going to be pain-free but this wax gets everything if used properly/you follow the directions.

I use it for Brazillians and its the best wax I've found (tried several)! If you follow normal waxing procedures, such as taking a couple ib-profins before waxing and use the oil so the wax doesn't stick to the skin, Bliss' system is probably less painful than others. However, I've always thought having it done was less painful than a diy approach. Good luck!

The amount of pain from a brazilian is based on the waxer, not the wax. Iv'e had painless brazilians because the waxer was amazing, and I've had others hurt like heck. If you've never had it done before, maybe go to a pro first. Took me an hour to get through half by myself, thats all I'm sayin. This is a good wax for down there though. No mess, very easy to use.

It actually does not come with the cotton strips. You have to wait until the wax hardens, then pull it off using one of the hardened corners.

No strips - it will dry and then you just peel it off. Don't let it harden too much though! You also want to overlap the wax with an area of your skin that doesn't contain hair so that the hardened wax is easier to peel up, get a grip on it and pull!

The Bliss Waxing-At-Home Hair Removal Kit does not include wax cloth strips. Here's the suggested usage for removal:

-BLISS TIP: When you apply the wax, layers should be as thick as a banana peel (about 1/8").
-Make sure to use some pressure when applying the wax, to form firm and full edges for easy peeling.
-When the wax has dried enough, so it is not tacky to the touch, it is time to remove (but don't wait too long - wax may crack).
-Press down on the entire patch to ensure a uniform removal, then hold the skin tight, grab an end, and remove the wax in a brisk fashion against the direction of hair growth.

We hope this answers your question!

I always get the little red bumps after waxing, even in a spa. I found this to be less irritating than spa treatments are for my skin. It might be because you control it; the amount and temp of the wax, the amount of the oils, etc. I used far less oil on my brows than they usually do at the spa.

Since Epiduo contains benzoyl peroxide, you might find the alcohol in the skin cleanser and/or the salicylic acid in the ingrown pads too irritating for your skin. The wax itself shouldn't be a problem though, as long as you're not also using retinols.
