Hello kids! Today we will be reviewing a virtually useless product which goes by the name of Hip Hop Facial Wax Strips. They are quite easily available, and since I was thinking of getting my upper lips quickly hair-free, I decided to use up one of these beauties.
To give this product its due, there are actually 12 wax strips inside, but the problem begins from there. The instructions I received clearly stated to rub and warm the strips between my palms before applying it over the area, rubbing towards the hair growth direction (??) and peeling off against the hair growth.
Price: 50 INR.
So I did.
And nothing happened.
Okay, let me give details. Or rather, pictorial evidence of what happened. First, I removed one strip.
Then I rubbed it to make it warm, and then peeled the two strips apart.
And this is what happened. A fat strip of peel was… well… unpeeled. This strip had to be scrapped.
I used the other part over my errant upper lip. Did everything prescribed.
And I pulled.
Now, before I say anything further, let me show you a picture of the hair on my upper arm. As I am naturally not very hirsute, I generally have baby fine hair. As my upper lip venture went unsuccessful, I decided to tear off a few hairs from my upper arm with the aid of the wax strip.
For your viewing pleasure.
Now You See It.
And now you don’t….err…actually, I could still see it
Do you know, the strip could not pull off more than 3-4 hairs of my hand? And on my upper lip, it could not pull off even one?
So, I decided to wipe off my efforts with the after-wax depiltowelette, which is nothing more than a tissue soaked in oil. Pleasantly smelling, though.
I was so unhappy with the entire experience, that I opened the fridge and ate some chocolates. However, in hindsight, it did not break me out. That must be some compensation.
Why I like the Hip Hop Facial Wax Strips:
- Cheaply priced
- Depiltowelette has nice smell
- Does not break me out
Why I don’t like the Hip Hop Facial Wax Strips:
- Did not remove hair at all
- Strip wax separates unevenly
- For 12 wax strips there is only 1 depiltowelette (?)
Will I Repurchase? Are you kidding me?
Have you tried these wax strips? Did they fare any better with you?
