Product Uses

HEATING IN MICROWAVE
- Pour out the wax beads into the container. Customize amount of beads for desired area.
- Make sure the spatula is not inside the product during the heating.
- Always place the container at one side of the microwave place, never in the centre. We recommend including an image indicating the correct and incorrect position.
- Observe the product as it is heated, never leave the microwave unattended while heating.
- 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. The wax must have a consistency like honey to be used correctly.
- If anything unusual 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.
- The heating times set out are an indication. If a microwave is used that is more powerful than what is indicated, reduce the heating times proportionally.

Step 1 - Heat the wax in the microwave according to the heating times.
Step 2 - Allow the wax to stand for 1 minute in the microwave with the door closed.
Step 3 - Remove the wax from the microwave and stir for 1 minute using the spatula provided.
Step 4 - After having mixed it, the wax must have a consistency like honey. Before applying, test the wax inside of the wrist. 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. If the wax is not hot enough, reheat for 15 seconds, allow the wax to stand for 1 minute in the microwave with the door closed, then remove from the microwave and check temperature again. Repeat if necessary until the desired temperature is achieved.

MIXTURE
- 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.

REHEATING
- 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.

TRY BEFORE USING
- 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.

APPLICATION AND REMOVAL OF THE WAX
- For greater effectiveness, the hair must be between 2 and 5 mm long.
- Skin must be clean and dry, with no traces of cream. It is recommendable to apply small amounts of 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 the 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 to facilitate its grip in the removal. A finer layer would be difficult to remove.
- 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 finger 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.
- Do not wax the same area more than twice. Wait for 48 hours before waxing the same area if the skin is irritated.
- Eliminate the traces of wax using a post-depilatory wipe or baby oil.
- 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.

ADVICE FOR APPLICATION
UNDERARMS
- 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.
BIKINI AREA
- 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.
LIPS
- 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.
