Facial Wax Strips Reviews
Marzena Facial Wax Strips are wax strips designed to comfortably and effectively remove unwanted facial hair. The specially sized Soft Easy-Pull Fabric Strip allows for easy application in delicate areas. The gentle formula combined with the fabric strip has a lighter adhesion, maximising grip on the hair while minimising stress on the skin. Added green tea extract helps to soothe and protect the skin. So effective is the Marzena treatment, that hair regrowth can be reduced considerably with regular use. Each Marzena wax strip can be re-applied several times during each treatment, removing hair from the root, for longer lasting smooth skin. Includes two finishing wipes to clean, soothe and moisturise after waxing.
Shaving is one of the simplest and most commonly used methods of hair removal, but it lasts the shortest amount of time. This is because hair is only removed at skin level, and therefore reappears very quickly. In addition, shaving actually stimulates the hair follicle, which speeds up the re-growth process and causes hair to grow not only faster, but thicker and coarser than before.
A depilatory cream or lotion chemically dissolves hair just below the skin's surface, and is then rinsed away with water. This method leaves the skin silky smooth.
With waxing, warm or cold wax is applied to the skin, encasing each hair. The wax is then stripped off to remove hair from the root below the skin's surface. The results can last up to six weeks.
Waxing, like tweezing, removes hair below the skin level, which is why it's a fairly long-lasting method of hair removal. Because the hair is removed at the root, it must regrow from scratch, which can take up to 6 weeks. Plus, it grows back softer. Shaving is the worst way to treat unwanted hair. By continually cutting the hair, you are, in fact, stimulating its growth. What's more, over time this growth becomes stronger, darker and denser, and you may find the hairs splitting. Shaving is also the most temporary hair removal method, with coarse stubble appearing quickly.
Shaving, lotions, and waxing will work on any area of the body, but of the three, waxing is generally recommended for highly visible areas because the results are the longest-lasting and most thorough. If you have a very low pain tolerance, then creams/lotions are recommended as they are pain-free. Bleaching is also another option if you don’t want to remove the hair, but just want it to be less visible. Try Marzena’s hair lightener.
Marzena offers 3 types of wax products: Liquid Wax and Wax Strips (in two sizes) and our new Roll-on Gel Wax. Marzena wax strips have a thin layer of wax between two layers of the fabric-like strip. To use, simply separate to create two strips, press onto the skin and remove quickly in the opposite direction to the growth of the hair. Each strip can be reapplied several times during the same waxing session.
Marzena Liquid Wax is inspired by the ancient method of sugar waxing, going back to the time of Cleopatra. The wax comes in tubs and is hard until heated. Once warm, you apply the wax using the provided spatula and then press the strips of cotton cloth (also included in the package) onto the desired areas. Quickly removing the cotton cloth pulls the hair and its root from the hair follicle, leaving skin smooth.
Marzena’s wax formulas guarantee 100% water solubility, making cleaning up - especially on sensitive areas of the body - a breeze.
Marzena’s Roll on Gel Wax is a versatile Instant Roll On Gel-Wax which simplifies waxing even more. It requires less preparation, and no heating. This gel-based wax formula is enriched with Manuka Honey, and feels soft and refreshing on skin. The unique dual action roller mechanism allows users to apply a wide or narrow layer of wax, making it ideal for all parts of the body, including the face. It’s designed to fit comfortably in your hand, and the formula is water-soluble.
Pre-waxed strips are a no-mess, no-fuss waxing option with no preparation needed, so they’re ideal for use at home or while travelling. Also, pre-waxed strips are ready for use on small "emergency" areas.
While liquid wax requires a little more effort because it must be warmed in the microwave or a pot of simmering water, it is highly effective on very coarse hair and sensitive skin. The warmth of the wax opens the hair follicle, allowing easier extraction of the hair root, and in turn, less irritation to the skin.
Marzena’s new roll-on wax is the best of both worlds, offering instant results with very little preparation.
Both wax strips and warm/cold wax are long-lasting methods of hair removal and very cost-effective.
While creams and lotions can work on even the shortest of hair, waxing requires hair to be beyond a certain length. For maximum effectiveness, use Wax Strips when hair is about 3mm in length. Cold wax/gel-wax needs hair to be about 6mm in length.
Depilatories have a high pH level, which helps to dissolve the hair just below the skin's surface. Gentler on the skin than shaving or waxing, they're especially good for sensitive or bumpy areas such as the bikini line, above the lip or under the arms. To use, apply the cream or lotion onto designated areas and then leave it for a few minutes before rinsing hair away. While it is completely painless, those with sensitive skin should patch-test any depilatory cream in advance and carefully follow all manufacturer's directions.
Hair growth inhibitors are a new development in hair removal that actually slow the re-growth of body hair. Applied immediately after hair removal, the inhibitor saturates the exposed base of the hair follicle and begins the process of slowing down hair growth. Marzena has also added this revolutionary ingredient to its creams and lotions to slow regrowth, and our No More Facial Hair product contains a bottle of this serum to apply after using the facial wax strips.
Marzena offers specific creams, lotions and wax strips for sensitive areas of the body. Sensitive lotion is perfect for the face, bikini line and underarms, while facial wax strips are great for the face and sensitive large wax strips are ideal for sensitive skin.
