Be extremely careful when heating the wax, as overheated wax can cause burns. In the event of burns seek immediate medical attention and show the pot. Only for microwave use.
Precautions before heating: Never heat the pot with the lid on, or with the wooden spatula, or any other utensil inside.
Note: check the condition of your microwave. As with all electrical appliances, microwaves should be used following the manufacturer's instructions, in order to keep it clean and in proper working order. Incorrect cleaning and maintenance of the microwave may cause, in certain products such as
How to heat the wax: Constantly monitor the wax while heating. Place the pot in the microwave on one side of the plate and heat the wax following the times indicated in the table. DO NOT place the pot in the middle of the microwave. Select the “heat” function on your microwave - never “defrost” or “cook”. The heating times should be as accurate as possible to avoid any incidents. If the power of your microwave is less than 800 W, the heating time should be longer. We recommend that you heat the wax in short periods so that you don't overheat the wax. The amount of wax remaining after each use will gradually be less, so the heating times will also be shorter with each use. Once the heating time is completed, it's very important to respect the resting time inside the microwave in order to obtain an even heat distribution throughout the wax. Never allow the wax to boil. If this happens, or if you can't handle the pot with your bare hands because it's too hot, or because the wax is liquid or contains bubbles, do not touch the pot. Allow it to cool down for at least 20 minutes so that the temperature inside the microwave drops, since the wax has overheated. When the temperature is cool enough to allow you to handle the pot, remove it from the microwave without tilting it, in a vertical position, using the two tabs on the pot to help you grip it. The ideal consistency of the wax should be similar to that of honey. If the wax hasn't fully melted, it will not be homogenous. You will therefore have to heat it a little longer, but never for more than 10 seconds, until you achieve the ideal texture. The wax may be partly liquid with some compact lumps. The combination of both textures means that the consistency of the wax is ideal for hair removal.
NOTE: Prepare this mixture with the utmost care in order to avoid splashes. Examine the surface of the wax. If the surface is still hard after the heating and rest times, NEVER attempt to perforate it, as the hot wax inside could splash upwards and potentially burn you. Introduce the wooden spatula down to the bottom of the pot and stir the wax slowly upwards, making sure the wax doesn't spill over. Do not shake the pot.
How to apply the wax: The skin should be clean and dry and without irritation or traces of other products such us: creams, oils, etc. The hair should be at least 2 mm long.
ALWAYS CHECK THE TEMPERATURE OF THE WAX BEFORE EACH APPLICATION. Always do a small test on the inside of the wrist to make sure it is not too hot. If the wax is too hot, let it cool. The wax will be ready once it achieves the consistency of honey. Scoop up some wax with the spatula and spread it over the area to be waxed, in the direction of hair growth, forming a thin, even layer of around 2mm of wax. Leave a thicker amount of wax at both ends of the strip to make it easier to pull. When using this product on sensitive areas such as the bikini line or underarms, do not wax the same area more than twice in the same waxing session to avoid irritating the skin.
Bikini line: if the hair is longer than 5 mm, trim it. Wax a small area each time.
Underarms: Underarm hair grows in two or more directions, so waxing must be done in several stages. If the wax cools down too much during waxing and can't be applied properly, heat it again for successive heating periods. Never exceed heating periods beyond 10 seconds.
How to remove the wax: Allow the wax strip to dry for a few seconds until it is no longer sticky to the touch. Then, hold the skin taut with one hand and with the other hand grip the end of the wax strip and pull it swiftly and firmly against the direction of hair growth, keeping it parallel to the skin. To soothe the skin, apply pressure with your hand to the waxed area immediately after pulling the strip of wax. If you pull the strip too slowly or perpendicular to the skin you could split the hair or cause slight irritation.
How to remove wax residues: For a perfect finish, use a post-depilatory wipe to remove wax residues, calm and moisturize the skin. Never remove the wax residues with water, soap or alcohol.
Tips: Thanks to its two different widths, the wooden spatula adapts to the different parts of the body. The narrow part is appropriate for the facial areas, while the wide part is suitable for the rest of the body.
Legs, underarms, Bikini and face
Follow the instructions and read the precautions. Before each application, always check your skin's reaction by applying the wax to a small part of the area you wish to wax, following the instructions.
