What we say: I love the wax strips. The sizes are great for what they are designed for. The small ones are perfect for taming brows and upper lips, and the larger ones, perfect for the legs, but also small enough to us eon the bikini line. I didn’t notice any difference in the wax to the old ones, but the treatment sachets in the box are definitely better. There are 2 Cooling Pre-waxing Towellettes and 2 Post-waxing Wipes. They cool and soothe much quicker than their predecessors.
The Shower Power Cream, however, disappoints. It says that it will remove hair in minutes (5-10). I tested it on my arms, and I gave up after 20 minutes. In the end I had to scrape it all off, and was left with areas of slightly crinkled hair. It barely removed any hair at all, just damaged it.
Keep in mind that this was on fine hair, so I don’t have any hope for it working on tougher leg hair at all! The worst part of all is that it smells just like other hair removal creams, although not as strong.
I don’t see the “spa like” treatment they describe on the box, as I’m not sure who actually enjoys waxing, or sees it as a “pampering treat.” Having said that, the wax strips do actually do what they say they will, so stick to them, and leave the Shower Power Cream on the shelf.
