Questions & Answers for Bliss Poetic Waxing Wax Strips Body

Question
Use on bikini area?
Are these suitable for use on your bikini line? I'm afraid it will rip up the tender skin in that area. Any experiences?

I have used these on my bikini line several times without any problems. However, if skin damage is a concern you may want to start with the smaller sized versions of the strips.

I use these on my legs and bikini area. I don't get as, ahem, involved in the areas as a professional, but they do a good job and I don't get too many ingrown hairs. I'm also very sensitive and I haven't had any major problems. Just make sure you do it the correct way, otherwise you'll have wax left on your bits and pieces.

I used this on my thigh, and when I pulled the strip off, all of the sticky "wax" stayed behind on my thigh. I had to scrub it off with makeup remover, body scrub, and anti bac (for the alcohol). I would not recommend using this on ANY area of your body, let alone the bikini area. You will end up with a sticky pink mess all over your skin down there. It took me an hour to scrub the pink sticky stuff off my skin.

I used these on the bikini area. Yes, it hurts, and the area was tender for a bit afterward. I think when I use them next I will take ibuprofen before hand to reduce the tenderness. That being said, the strips did not damage or harm my skin at all. They are easier to use if you cut them into smaller sections.

That's what I used them for, and by the second day it looks fine, just like a normal wax.

I'm going to answer my own question here.
I did try it on my bikini line, and ended up bruised. Big, nasty bruises under the skin.
Luckily it rained that weekend.
Do NOT use on bikini line!

Since it didn't say to avoid the bikini line, I tried them and they caused my skin to bleed under the skin, which eventually turned into an unsightly bruise. So no, definitely avoid for the bikini area! They just don't work well at all. Too bad.

You can use them on your bikini line but they are a little tough (I was red for a little while). I wouldn't use them for a full monty, but just the normal bikini wax sure. If you have super sensitive skin I recommend the poetic hard wax.

These might be a bit awkward to use in the bikini area because they leave such a sticky residue. I think they're better used on body parts that one can readily get to. However, because they leave a residue, they do not strip off as many skin cells as a conventional wax. In other words, YMMV.

They do work on the bikini area but it is a lot more painful than getting sugared by a professional. I didn't rip any skin but I decided it was worth it to me to pay someone else to inflict the pain.

I also have thick hair that grows pretty quickly, and found this product to be frustrating and a waste of time and money. Maybe I'm not doing the proper technique- whatever I am doing with these Bliss wax strips is NOT working and I would NOT recommend them. There MUST be something better on the market

I wouldn't use this product. I used it on my underarms & it didn't really work. The Poetic waxing kit may work better for you.

Use the hard wax (that you heat up - it is blue), guarantee it will work. These may/may not work.

This works better on coarse hair than fine because it grabs onto coarse hair more easily. I have both, coarse hair in some places and fine in others. That is my experience. I've been waxing in salons and at home for years.

These work better than most home products, but they don't always pick up everything. Hair grows in 3 cycles, so sometimes the shorter hairs don't get picked up the first time. Wait a few days and then wax the shorter hairs.

Have you tried the Bliss Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer - Spa Edition Item # 1093350? It included a epilating head for the trimmer. I really love this tool. The epilating head pulls each air out individually, and doesn't touch the skin the way that waxing does, so that you can go over an area until you have gotten all of the hair without bruising yourself? I highly recommend.

Instead of these strips, on your bikini line, I would try the Wax Poetic that comes in a microwaveable cup. It should get everything - root and all! Just hold your skin taut!! Over time, your hair should get finer.

Hair grows in a cycle, so some hair is dormant and other hair is growing and those cycles are individual. I typically start seeing some hair within 2-3 weeks of waxing, but those are the portion of hairs that were actively growing when I waxed, and the hair is typically finer. Since not every hair is growing, the appearance is reduced.

Depends what body part you use it on. I cut mine into small strips to use on my upper lip. Works well for about 2 weeks before needing to do it again.

My leg hair grows very quickly in the summer. I need to wax again in a week or two (regardless of the brand I use or if I go to the salon). In the winter, I can easily go 4 weeks without having to wax again.

I would use the Poetic Waxing strips for the Face. But if you have sensitive skin, then I might no recommend this product. The first time I used this my lip burnt a lot and was very red, and my skin isn't very sensitive.

I tried this on my face and would not recommend this at all. It really pulls at the skin, does not remove hair well and leaves a really sticky mess on your skin. I have had great success with a product called Moom. It's made with totally organic ingredients and is awesome! Hope this helps!
