Which Wax Strips Do The Trick?

January 30, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

Much like death and taxes, hair removal is one of life's few certainties–at least for us ladies. But when you don't have $79 (or 79 minutes) to devote to a lean-and-mean depilation at your local salon, how's a girl to maintain? Today we compare two different pre-waxed strip hair removal kits to tell you which of these tidy alternatives to hot wax will give you the salon-smooth feel. 

What: Sally Hansen Wax Strip Kit ($8.19) vs. Parissa Wax Strips ($10.29)

First things first: no pre-waxed strip will give you better results than a microwaveable hot wax kit (see our comparison of home wax kits for your best bet in that category). But as a home waxing veteran, I know that sometimes I don't have time for the goop, the mess, or the darned muslin strips that always seem to run out mid-depilation. That's when wax strips come in handy: they're quick and neat, and for last-minute touch ups or small-area removal, they really work. So recently, when I noticed some rogue hairs growing in to my impeccable bikini line, I decided to put Sally Hansen's and Parissa's versions of the all-body wax strip kits to the test.

The Winner: Parissa Wax Strips – Sensitive Formula

While neither product managed to grab 100% of those stubborn bikini buggers, Parissa pulled out more hairs per band. From there it was just a few tweezes to perfection. Plus, since the strips come in three assorted sizes, you can match width with area. In some of the trickier contours of the inner thigh, for example, the slender, shorter underarm strips actually fit better (and thus grip better) than the strips intended for the bikini. If you think outside the box, I bet even the teeny-weeny eyebrow strips could work wonders down there! Afterwards, slick your newly-sheered skin with the included azulene oil, which will soothe and soften the area.
