Sally Hansen is one of my favorite brands for personal hygiene, be it waxing/shaving/bleaching. Their products have never disappointed me. I was searching for a wax suitable for face after using up my Nads Facial Wax Strips. I decided to try the new “Sally Hansen Ouch Relief Wax Strips for Face.”
Get hair free for up to 8 weeks* with minimal pain! New Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit for Face features innovative Pain Relief Technology wipes that help minimizes pain while waxing. The pre-waxed cloth strips contour to your face for easy and effective hair removal.
$6.99 for 24 wax strips, 2 sizes.
My Take on Sally Hansen Ouch Relief Wax Strips For Face:
I have used Sally Hansen crème bleach and facial hair removal kit and loved how well it worked on my sensitive and acne-prone skin. All these years, I have been using wax strips from Veet and Nads, they worked great, but can sometimes make my skin very sensitive. Frequent visits to salons to get my upper lips and chin have been a headache for me, as they grow back in no more than a week. So, I use wax strips to get rid of that excessive embarrassing hair. I was attracted to use it as it claims to be an “Ouch Relief Formula.”
This pack comes with 24 strips, 4 pre-wax strips and a bottle of Azulene finishing calming oil. The wax strip is coated on both sides with wax. The wax is very fine and doesn’t have a weird smell to it. These strips can be used for face and bikini line.
First, apply the Pain-Relief Technology Pre-Treatment Wipe. Wait at least 10 minutes to allow the treatment to dry and work. Rub the wax strip between the hands to warm the wax, then slowly peel the strips apart and determine the direction of hair growth and press on the wax strip firmly. Hold skin taut with one hand and using the other hand, pull off the wax strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. After waxing is complete, remove any wax residue and help re-moisturize skin with Azulene Finishing Oil.
These strips claims to pull even the smallest hair and keep the face hair-free for at least 8 weeks, but I noticed that the strip doesn’t grab the entire hair in one shot and I have to go over the same place multiple times till it removes everything. There is no burning or redness post waxing which is a huge benefit and also as it claims it doesn’t give any pain while pulling the hair unless you are extra sensitive to pain tolerance. Make sure to pull the hair in the right direction or else you might end up breaking the hair that might result in in-grown hair.
Pros of Sally Hansen Ouch Relief Wax Strips For Face:
- There is no pain while pulling the hair.
- Doesn’t irritate or burn the skin and suitable for sensitive skin.
- Doesn’t give post-wax bumps.
- Strips are available in 2 sizes to fit different parts on the face.
- Hair-free skin for at least 2-3 weeks.
- Hair doesn’t grow back thick and coarse.
- No microwave is needed, so it is less messy.
Cons of Sally Hansen Ouch Relief Wax Strips For Face:
- Doesn’t grab the entire hair at once, need to go over the same place multiple times.
I get a good use out of this product as it helps me to remove excess facial hair in the comfort of home. I will definitely recommend this product to anyone who is okay with waxing facial hair.
