Directions
  1. Warm a double strip by rubbing it between your hands for 20 – 30 seconds or until the strips separate easily.
  2. Slowly separate the double strip and place 1 strip aside for subsequent use. Any open strips left after you have completed waxing, can simply be folded in half for next time.
  3. Firmly smooth a strip onto the area to be waxed in the same direction as hair growth. Press the strip down onto the skin, applying pressure with your hand. Rub FIRMLY and REPEATEDLY in the direction of hair growth.
  4. Hold the skin taut with one hand and grip the bottom of the wax strip with the other and pull back quickly, close to the skin. The quicker the motion, the more effective the result. Place firm pressure onto the waxed area with your hands to relieve any discomfort.
  5. Use a little of your facial moisturiser to remove any wax residue that may remain.

  • Ensure your skin is free of excessive oil and moisture before waxing – but at the same time it shouldn’t be dry or scaly.
  • Be sure the strips are adequately warmed – there should be no audible “crackling” sound when the strips are separated.
  • Keep your skin in tip-top condition by moisturising and exfoliating it regularly. This way you’ll avoid unwanted ingrown hairs.
  • The crystal strips, together with our Original Wax Strip formulation, facilitate a stronger “grip” and are well suited to tougher, more-difficult-to-remove hair.

I've heard waxing can be sore or uncomfortable which makes me apprehensive. Is this true? - Karen

Waxing removes the hair from the root, so yes, there's a level of sensation as nerves surround that hair root. But everyone is different and the experience varies from person to person. Avoid waxing a few days before or after your period, as your skin is more sensitive at this time. The muscles around the hair contract when it is cold, so wax in a warm room where those muscles are relaxed and comfortable which will minimise any discomfort. If you can pull a plaster off your skin, you'll be just fine with waxing!

How warm do the strips need to be to work effectively? - Jenna

In normal conditions, rubbing the strips between your hands for 20 - 30 seconds should warm them adequately. In a particularly cold snap, you may need to warm them a little longer. When adequately warm, the wax strips will separate easily without any "cracking" sound.

How should I prepare my skin before waxing? - Abigail

Waxing works best on clean, dry skin that is free of moisture, sweat or natural body oils. We don't suggestion moisturising the skin before a wax. If you're in a humid environment, apply a light layer of talc to the skin before waxing to absorb any excess moisture.

How do I know which size wax strip to use? - Sonja

Mandy's strips are pre-cut to suit hair removal from different body parts - larger strips for leg areas, medium sized strips for bikini and underarms and small strips for the face. Alternately, you can purchase large wax strips and cut them to size to your preference.

How do I know which type of wax strip to use? - Rooksana

Mandy's produce two types of wax strips. Our Original strips have a transparent crystal strip with traditional wax which is very effective on thicker, coarser, denser hair. Our Soft-Feel wax strips have a fabric like strip and a gel wax formulation - these are better suited to finer, sparser hair.

I didn't find the product effective - what went wrong? - Elize

The strips must be warm enough to grip on to the hairs, but if overheated, they will adhere to skin rather than hair, and not be as effective. The skin should be clean, dry and in good condition - if it is too dry and scaly, or sticky and greasy, the strips won't remove the hair successfully. The strips can be reused several times, depending on the density of hair - once they lose their "stickiness" or "tackiness", they will no longer be effective.

My skin looks red and irritated after waxing, is this normal? - Judy

A little redness is perfectly normal and should subside after a few hours. Be sure than when waxing, you remove the strip close to the skin - "along" the length of the skin, rather than "up" away from the skin. Also remember to hold the skin taut in the removal process, this will reduce irritation, sensitivity and the chance of any bruising.

There's a slight stickiness or residue after I've used the wax - how can I get rid of this? - Molly

The easiest way to remove the residue is by using a little of your everyday moisturiser or body lotion.
