You don't have to heat it, but there are directions if you want to heat it....which is great, because heat is not necessary to make the product work, but if you have a microwave available, you can warm it up a bit and make it more like a salon experience, and a little easier to work with.

Question
Reusable sticks?
There are only five sticks that come with the kit, does this mean that this kit is intended for just five uses? Seems that I used up one stick on one eyebrow wax, but two cloths. Thanks.

I cut the cloths into much smaller pieces. I was disappointed that the kit only comes with 5 sticks because there is a significant amount of wax left. This kit should come with a lot more !!

I was thinking the same thing. I just cleaned off the stick I used and will save it for later. The sticks are pretty cheap though and you can probably pick it up at a craft store!

I think you're supposed to use more than one cloth at one time! I only use one at a time, so I'm just planning on using toothpicks or something when I run out of sticks!

They are pretty basic wooden sticks. You could get more (albeit longer ones that you could break to make smaller) in any manicure supply store.

I hate this kit: the sticks aren't re-useable unless you can wash off the wax completely (hard to do with such a sticky mess) and allow the sticks to dry. I would highly recommend NADS brand; their hair removal wand is super-easy to apply (the wax squeezes out of a hole in the end so, no stick necessary), it's strips are re-useable because the wax washes off so easily, you don't have to heat the wax, and it's cheaper. I find NADS at most drug stores. Good luck!

Thank you for all the responses! I followed the suggestion of Anonymous and Livluvlife23 and after using a stick, cleaned it off with a few drops of Josie Maran oil - it worked perfectly. The sticks can last forever this way.

I experienced the same thing. There aren't enough strips and sticks for the amount of wax provided. I used very little wax. It's high quality and a little goes a long way. I didn't think it would be feasible to use the sticks again because the one I used got really messy. I would suggest going to your local beauty product store and purchasing some additional birchwood sticks and Muslin strips so you can take advantage of all the wax. Good luck.

The sticks are reusable if you clean them off with some baby oil. The strips are not reusable but you get plenty of them.

I have this product and I'm pretty sure the sticks are not reusable unless you can somehow get the old wax off because it stays really sticky and will stick to wherever you store if you intend to reuse. I know because I've already tried saving a stick. This is my only problem with this kit.

i reuse sticks, i just make sure to get most of the wax off before i put it away. something oil based will work the best for removing the wax- i used eye makeup remover. also, try using just one strip for both brows- i was able to do it and it was a lifesaver!

Per Insert: " How to Heat The Wax" Place in center of microwave on microwave safe plate and heat on LOW for 70-80 seconds, as microwaves may vary. Cautiously remove from microwave, keeping in mind jar and plate may be warm. Remove lid carefully. Allow wax to cool for 3-5 seconds then test wax temperature on the inside of your wrist before applying to the face."

The directions call for 70-80 seconds. I've been burned in a salon before, so I heated it 20 seconds at a time, until it was not stiff, but a very comfortable temp.

maybe but it says that it is a facial wax.so not sure about that but anastasia has a website and you could send them email asking them. they do answer back very fast and they are very helpful.i had a problem with one of their products and they helped me with no problem. but this is a very small jar of wax plus they dont sell extra strips or wood sticks. so you would have to buy the whole kit again thats one of the reasons i returned this wax kit. hope this helps a little:)

It's soft-wax, so it's made for fine/thin hair. If you want to wax your underarms, I suggest using hard wax because it's made for coarse hair.

I have not tried it under the arms, but I wouldn't recommend it simply because the amount of wax you get is small and the application sticks are small. It would take a long time to cover that size area. The wax itself is a great quality so if they made a bigger set for other areas, then it would be perfect.
