GiGi All Purpose Honee Wax
I am a professional and this met my expectations.
I have been looking for a wax that I could use at home since I was still in cosmetology school back in 2006. Nothing has sounded promising until I saw this. It sounded like a microwavable version of the same stuff we have used in almost every salon I have ever worked in. Sure enough that's exactly what it is. I love it! There is a bit of a trick to dealing with the strings by waving the applicator in a swirling motion in the air when you first bring it out of the wax. I will be stocking this in my home from now on and recommending it to anyone who is looking for a way to wax at home.

I purchased this after reading some of the other reviews. I heated new jar up for 30 seconds, but it wasn't warm enough. It took another 30 seconds. (so a full minute is what it took in my microwave) I tested it on my wrist and it was perfect.
I used the GiGi muslin strips and everything went as planned. Be sure to apply pressure after you pull off your strip. It helps minimize discomfort. Also, BE SURE YOU PURCHASE THE GIGI WAX OFF. The wax is sticky. At first I tried to wash it off, but that didn't work at all. In fact, I picked up something after washing my hands and I left sticky residue on it. The GIGI WAX OFF works super easy and smells wonderful. It's worth the price.
I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this again. LOVE IT!

This works great for a cheap price! I wish it would get all the smaller hairs, but overall works very well. It does need more time to heat up than instructed and needs to be reheated if you take your time with it. Instead of using the wax remover, baby oil works perfectly and if you need a makeshift applicator a plastic knife works well also.

Works, but was not for me.
