I’m just saying if it wasn’t for the Glee The Face Wax Kit I would be a monkey by now. I picked up a Glee Face Wax Hair Removal Strip at Walmart.com when things were really bad in New York and a trip to get my eyebrows or upper lip waxed was not in the future (and still isn’t because hello, that’s so scary right now!).
I’ve been using these for the past four months in place of keeping my normal waxing appointing and they work a treat.
Keep in mind I’ve tried a few different brands of wax strips lately but I come out of the experience always going back to Glee! I really, REALLY like these.
Back in the day, when I was a good deal younger, Sally Hansen Wax Strips were totally a thing but they hurt and the wax had to be warmed up by rubbing it back and forth in your hand. Wax strips have come a long way since that time because that isn’t something you need to do anymore.
Glee Face Wax Hair Removal Strips contains 12 double-sided wax strips (24 total) along with 12 after wax facial wipes. All you need to do is peel the wax strip apart and you’ll end up with two strips. The one strip that opens open into two is plenty to do your with in my experience! If you have other hair on your face you wish to remove like chin, sideburns, etc…you’ll obviously need more than the one strip.
This is very painless removal for me. I apply it the strip, I swipe my hand down it a few time so it adheres well, and let it rip. I’ve been waxing for years so don’t even wince when I do it. I have more pain when they use hot wax at the salon I go to compared to this. This was very gentle in my opinion and it should be a good pick for those that have never used wax before. It removes all the hair in one go. Just remember to hold your skin a bit taunt to get the best results.
I did use these on my brows but you have to cut the shape and it can stick on the scissors when doing this, etc….! So, they aren’t completely ideal for this area! I would stick to using them on the upper lip area, sides of the face, or chin.
Best part? They smell amazing. Just like grape bubblegum! They also include a follow up wipe to smooth, hydrate, and remove any excess wax after using a strip!
All in all, a really great product when getting to the salon is an impossible experience!
I highly recommend these.
Do you use at home wax kits?
