  • For my eyebrows, yes, and it worked okay. I like Sally Hansen wax strips better.

  • I tried it a few years ago and it didn't work at, maybe I just bought the wrong stuff

  • I just don't trust myself enough to do it. I usually go get mine waxed once a month, and tweeze in between.

  • I have bought 2 wax kits: one from Sally Beauty Supply (Honey something) and the other started with an "M" (Marzella, maybe?). I used them for my legs and for the part of above the lip and between the eyebrows. The SBS kit had cotton strips and a tub of wax with sticks to apply. The "M" one was a roller-type mechanism with a purple top and thin cotton strips. The one from Sally wasn't too bad, but still a bit messy. The "M" one was okay initially, then the container holding the wax began to leak. I had 2 and the second one hasn't leaked too badly, but it is annoying. It was also a little harder to get it heated to a nice temperature in order to roll it on (that mechanism didn't work that well, either). I have used the SBS one and don't intend to repurchase and the "M" one has some left--don't intend to buy again. To me, they take more time trying to not be messy when applying, so I don't use wax removal kits, anymore.
