OVERHEATING CAN CAUSE SERIOUS BURNS
Microwave Ovens Disclaimer/Indemnity
Due to the variability of microwave functions, Lee-Chem Laboratories (Pty) Ltd. does not accept liability for any injury or damage arising from the preparation of this product in a microwave oven. Microwave ovens vary considerably. Heating times given are only an indication. This product has been tested in a 900-watt microwave. If a higher wattage is used, times must be reduced and caution exercised. Likewise, if a lower wattage microwave is being used extra heating times may be necessary. The heating times must also be reduced according to the proportion of wax used, i.e., a half-filled jar will take a shorter time to heat.
FOR EFFECTIVE & SAFE USE *refer to instruction leaflet for detailed cautions.
Film wax is named as such because only a thin layer of wax is applied.
Stir the hot wax with the spatula to ensure that the heat is distributed evenly through the wax.
Apply a light sprinkling of talc to the area you're going to wax – spread evenly over the area. This helps absorb any excess moisture or body oil that may impair the performance of the wax.
Don't reuse or recycle wax. It's not only unhygienic, but also causes the wax to become brittle and less effective.
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 hot should the wax be? - Denise
Follow the heating instructions on pack to heat the wax. Bear in mind that the wattage of the microwave and the amount of product in the jar has an impact on the heating time required. Stir the heated wax to ensure even temperature distribution. It should be hot enough to dissolve any hard lumps of wax, but never bubbling. Test the temperature by placing a small drop of wax to the inside of the wrist. The sensation of the wax on your skin should feel hot, but not to the extent of any discomfort.
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.
Do I need epilating strips for this product? - Cindy-Lee
No - Mandy's Film Wax is a peel off wax.
I didn't find the product effective - what went wrong? - Elize
Ensure the wax is hot enough to grip on to the hairs - if it's too cold, it won't do so. Ensure your skin is clean, dry and in good condition - if it is too dry and scaly, or sticky and greasy, the wax will not work effectively.
Can I clean the wax and reuse it? - Dane
Recycling wax it not advisable - it's both unhygienic and compromises the integrity of the wax.
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.
