Care & Safety advice

  • Read the directions for use carefully before using the product and follow the use instructions.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
  • Keep the product away from children.
  • Don't use it on old people, diabetic people or people with circulatory problems.
  • Don't apply on irritated, wounded or swollen skin, skin with spots, ulcers, varicose veins, moles or sunburnt skin. Nor on skin that has previously reacted when using other waxes.
  • Don't ingest. If you ingest it accidentally, consult your usual doctor and show him the product packaging.
  • Don't use for 24 hours after sunbathing or immediately after a shower or bath.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes. Rinse immediately if pre-depilatory lotion or post-depilatory oil comes into contact with them.
  • Before using this product, consult a dermatologist if you are undergoing treatment that may affect the skin or if you think that you may have an undiagnosed dermatological problem.
  • Before the first use, carry out a test on a small part of the area to be depilated. If in the 24 hours following the application no adverse reaction is observed, continue using the product.
  • If you have no experience in wax depilation, it is recommendable to begin by waxing the legs. Begin to wax areas that are more sensitive to wax such as underarms or bikini when you have acquired enough experience.
  • Don't use this product on the nose, eyebrows, ears, chest or in the genital or perianal area.
  • Appropriate for pregnant women, but it could cause bruises.
  • It is common after the depilation to suffer slight discomfort on the skin and for the skin to redden. These effects should disappear within 24 hours; if not, it is recommended that you consult a doctor. Apply cold compressions on the skin to relieve the discomfort.
  • Don't use deodorants or any other alcohol-based product in the depilated areas in the 24 hours following the depilation.
  • Don't expose depilated skin to direct sunlight for 24 hours after the depilation.

    Product Uses

    Directions for use PREPARATION OF THE PRODUCT

  • Make sure the spatula is not inside the product during the heating.
  • Always place the product at one side of the microwave place, never in the centre.
  • Observe the product as it is heated.
  • After each use the quantity of wax remaining is reduced. The heating times must be reduced proportionally.
  • Don't overheat the wax to prevent the risk of burns.
  • If any anomalous behaviour is observed during the heating, such as deformation of the tub, immediately switch off the microwave and don't touch the product until it has cooled down.
  • Heat the wax by following the following heating times:
    STEP 1 Full container 1 min 40 sec 2 min
    STEP 2 Waiting time (microwave switched off and keeping the door closed) 1 min
    STEP 3 Homogenisation time 1 min
    STEP 4 Reheating intervals (if necessary) 15 sec
  • The heating times set out are an indication. If a microwave is used that is more powerful than that which is indicated, reduce the heating times proportionally.
  • Once the heating period has finished, let the wax sit in the microwave for a minute with the door closed.
  • It is common to find pieces of unmelted wax after heating.
  • Mix the wax for the time indicated in the previous table with the help of the spatula to achieve a uniform temperature. After having mixed it, the wax must have a consistency like honey.
  • Clean the rest of the wax on the edges of the pot to check the thermochromic dot. If the wax is too hot, the spatula's blue indicator will disappear and the ink will not reappears for a long time. Allow the wax to cool down for enough time until the indicator reappears in a few seconds after mixing the wax.
  • If the wax is too thick to be mixed, heat it again according to the times indicated in the table. Mix until you obtain the appropriate texture checking the temperature again with the thermochromic spatula.
  • Before applying the wax, test with great care in a small part of the skin (for example the inside of the wrist) whether its temperature is correct. If the wax is too hot, apply immediately abundant cold water, remove the wax and allow the product to cool until it reaches an appropriate temperature.
  • For greater effectiveness, the hair must be between 2 and 5 mm long.
  • Before the depilation, the skin must be clean and dry, with no traces of cream. It is recommendable to apply talcum powder to completely dry the skin.
  • Pay attention to the temperature of the wax. Wax that is too hot can cause burns. Before applying it to the skin, it is necessary to check the temperature of the product in a small area of the skin, such as the inside of the wrist.
  • Determine the direction of growth of the hair.
  • Using the spatula, take an amount of wax of the size of a walnut. Rotate the spatula to prevent it from dripping.
  • Using the edge of the spatula and without pressing too hard, spread with wax softly and in one go in the direction of growth of the hair.
  • The layer of wax must have a thickness of between 1 and 2 millimetres. A finer layer would be difficult to remove.
  • The edge of the wax layer must be thick (approximately 2 mm) to facilitate its grip in the removal.
  • Wait until the layer is dry, but still soft and malleable. If it is left for too long (more than 1 minute) it will become rigid and will be difficult to remove.
  • Start to remove the thickest part of the layer of wax with the help of your nails or the spatula. Keep the skin tense with one hand and with the other pull the layer of wax with a rapid movement parallel to the skin and in the opposite direction of the growth of the hair. It is very important that the product be removed energetically and flush with the skin.
  • Don't depilate the same area more than twice. Wait for 48 hours before depilating the same area if the skin is irritated.
  • Eliminate the traces of wax using a post-depilatory wipe.
  • In the event of burns, apply cold water to the affected area for 10 minutes and seek medical help. Don't try to remove the layer of wax.
  • Underarm hair tends to grow in two directions, so that depilation of the underarms must be done in two steps.
  • Lift your elbow and move your hand towards the back of your neck.
  • For the upper area of the underarm, spread the wax towards the direction of the elbow. For the lower area, repeat the same procedure in the opposite direction.
  • Apply the wax only in small areas.
  • Keeping the skin firm, use the correct part of the spatula to apply a layer of wax in the direction of growth of the hair.
  • Labial hair tends to grow in two directions, from the centre to the ends, so that it must be eliminated in two steps: on the one hand the left side and on the other the right.
  • The skin on the face is extremely sensitive. The skin must be kept firm before eliminating the wax and the temperature must be checked very thoroughly before carrying out the depilation.
  • Divide the area to be depilated into smaller regions according to the direction of growth of the hair.
  • Use the spatula to spread the wax softly and in a single movement from your knee to your ankle. The wax strip should measure between 10 and 15 centimetres at the most.
  • Don't leave the spatula inside the wax after using it.
  • Clean the spatula with the edges of the pot.
  • Soften the depilated skin with the post-depilatory oil wipes that are included with the wax. Massage the oil with your hands until the product is fully absorbed. This will eliminate the last traces of wax, leaving it soft. Don't use water, soap or alcohol to remove traces of wax.
