I hate using strips. I find them painful, a nuisance to use, and not particularly effective. I've always found microwavable waxes much easier to use, less painful, and less messy. This Nair kit is one of the best I've found in the price range. It contains other extras and amenities but the bottom line is, the wax is the most important. It's not messy, easy to apply, and easy to remove. You don't need to use a lot in one sitting, so the tub of wax you get lasts a long time, depending on how often you need to wax. I've managed to have the kit last me over a year. Though this particular is difficult to find now in drugstores, if you do find it, definitely get it!
I'm rating the value as "poor" because the price on this stuff is nearly triple what you'd find in stores, but I can't find it in stores. My wife's been using this for 18 years, daughter for 2, and I wax my nose hairs every three months (yes, NOSE hairs). We've run out and it seems no stores around us have this product so we may have to bite the bullet and pay the outrageous price. As for how it works, you microwave the tub, make sure it's not too hot, apply, blow on it a few times (what the wife does) and then RIP it off. Then put the used wax aside, because it can be used over and over and over (note: i do NOT re-use the nose hair wax). 1 tub typically lasts about a year in my household with 2 women using it monthly.
