OK folks, here's the deal. This stuff is GREAT! Cleans up easy, removes hair well. There are a couple of things you should know though that will make your experience better. A) The hair has got to be at least about 1/4 inch long for this stuff to 'grab' it well. It doesn't work that well on anything shorter. (This shouldn't be that much of a suprise, this is true of most types of waxing) B) When it says "rub firmly" it means it. For best results, you should start to feel the wax starting to come thru the muslin strips... when it does, it has also grabbed the hair. After that, just pull the strip off quickly, less pain than removing a bandaid, and the hair is gonesky. I bought two bottles to begin with, and am back for two more, so go figure. I have tried everything else, (father was the misssing link, inherited his hair) salons were painful, other kits created a filthy mess and took as much skin as hair, this stuff is without a doubt the way to go. Takes the hair, leaves the skin, and cleans up super quick. Made going brazilian non-scary, need I say more?
I am almost done with this huge jar. It is easy to apply and pulls the hairs off great. The cloth stips are reusable, and I few I cut up to smaller ones. When you are done, just fill the sink up with hot water and let the strips soak in there for 5 minutes, they are rinsed clean. Just let them dry overnight on a towel and they are ready to use again. The wax can get a little messy, but great value for the price. I will re-order. I have sensitive skin and this gives minimal redness.
The Fortuna Wax Hair Removal Kit works very well on my back and private areas. My wife likes me hair-free and smooth. Now that the kit includes a wooden applicator stick, it is even better. The directions are brief but accurate. Follow the directions and you will be pleased. Make sure you have corn starch or corn starch-based baby powder on hand.
I'm prefacing this by saying that it's expensive because it's basically sugar and water. The ingredients don't warrant the cost, but then what waxing product does actually warrant the cost? The strips are reuseable and easy to clean, this wax is easy to get off the skin, and it is fairly effective as far as removing any type of hair (facial hair, fine and coarse body hair). I like that it's a low temperature wax and it doesn't adhere to the skin too tightly, making it low on the pain scale. Someone below reviewed this and wished that it came with wooden applicators... This product arrived to me with wooden applicators in the same package as the strips that are also included.
I am a teenager and from what i had herd about shaving i didn't want to start so my mother ordered me this hair removing system for me. I have never waxed before and when i tried Fortuna Wax it worked perfectly. It didn't hurt at all and it made my skin really smooth and wasn't scary. Thank you Fortuna Wax.
This is a HIGHLY effective product. The key is to use a dusting powder before applying the wax. This helps the wax to adhere to the hair as opposed to the skin, and it does double duty by removing more hair while cutting down on the pain. The wax is water soluble so cleanup is relatively easy, the strips can be reused over and over again. Since discovering this product I always keep a backup around so that I never run out!
This "hot" wax is hard to manage and doesn't seem to really take out the hair like the pro's do. I've tried it a couple of time per the directions, but maybe it is just lack of experience, I have had to pluck after waxing, not a good deal.
This stuff is easy to use and easy to cleanup afterward. It really attaches to the hair so be prepared for some major discomfort. Baby powder before using is highly suggested. I would definitely buy this product again!

I appreciate the reuseable strips. It really removes hair. The wax can be overheated so it does not take much to warm it up. I used the boiling water method. It works!

Have never used wax hair removel. Surprised at the ease of it and how much hair it removes. Used to remove eye brow hair and very pleased with the results not to mention the lack of discomfort. Easier and less painful then plucking. Does not come with wooden stick. Fortunately have freezer full of popsicles so was able to obtain one quickly.

Look, at the end of the day, you're ripping hair out from it's roots. No matter what the product is made from, you're going to feel it. But this product is very easy to use, very clean, and does a great job. I didn't for a second think the strips would be reusable, but they cleaned off 100% on minutes. It's a great product!
