Good product, works well especially easier on longer hairs. Warms and melts quickly. I found this product to be good for my legs. It was easy to use and i love the results of super smooth skin and such a bonus it last for about 3-4 wks. It can be a bit harsh on the gentle areas such as the bikini area but i do enjoy it for my legs and would recommend it and purchase again.

Dermatologically tested Nair Irresistible Toffee Apple Sugar Wax is a mouth-watering addition to the Nairrange with a delicious fragrance.
I tried this product over a couple of months, and found it reasonably effective - it removes hair, but its not as conditioning as I'd hoped.
It was easy enough to prep, and it does pick up shorter regrowth on flatter surfaces such as legs and underarms. I found it difficult to use on shorter bikini line areas. I also found that the areas treated were a bit dry and damaged afterwards in the more sensitive areas.
Another disappointing thing I found was small specs of the wax around the bathroom afterwards, so its not as contained as a strip version.
Tips: Best on legs or Arms
I usually try to stay away from waxing, especially using actual hot wax. There's something at the back of my mind that says it won't work and also I just hate the mess of it. But alas, I'm a lazy person and shaving everyday is just too much commitment for being a woman. I was really excited to try this out when I got it from the vault because it's apple scented (more like children's paracetamol scented) and the packaging looked really cool.
This is easy to heat up and comes with a really detailed instruction manual, so even a dummy likeme managed to follow through. It did indeed remove about 80% if my armpit hair (sorry if TMI!) but it missed the finer, shorter hairs. After I cleaned up with some baby wipes I found that my armpits were stained red??? What is this? I was so confused that I almost laughed. Thinking back, who's idea was it to make the sugar wax bright red? Well, I wiped and wiped some more and finally my skin is back to almost normal. I feel like aside from the staining this is great. I used probably 6 or 7 spatulas of wax and there's still tons left. So this will last me quite a while. However I used two wax fabric strip things, and I'm a bit worried they'll run out a lot faster.
I probably prefer waxing strips over this since they're a lot more convenient but this was fun and not as messy as I expected.
Another product from my May 2016 BR vault haul. Thanks again, BR!
I read through the instruction pamphlet and then heated the wax. The plastic tub was lukewarm to touch and the wax was runny around the edges, while still looking pretty solid in the centre. I mixed it well with the provided wooden spatula until it had a creamy consistency, spread out an old towel and placed a piece of newspaper next to me, for the wax, clean and used cotton strips.
I dipped the tip of the spatula in the tub, lifting & twirling it, before smearing this thinly over the hair on my legs. I grabbed a cotton strip, lay it over the top and whipped the hair out.
The hair came out cleanly and my leg looked smooth. It was a little difficult to judge how far to smear the wax; if its too big and the wax sticks out the sides of the cotton strip, things get messy very quickly. I did the next section further up my leg and ripped the hair out, this time the cotton strip had quite a swinging backlash reaction! These cotton strips are far too long! After the first use, they become heavier and the further up my leg I went, the more problems I ran into. Not only was I dealing with a backlash effect and trying not to end up with the swinging sticky strip stuck to my face or hair, I was also running out of space to effectively rip the strip off. My body got in the way and I couldn't move my arm far enough to get the strip off properly.
I ended up only doing my lower legs and knees, as I was getting frustrated with the length of the strips and after being reused 4 or 5 times, the wax starts to seep through the back of the strip, making my hands sticky, too.
After 45 minutes, I had smooth half-legs, 6 cotton strips and half a pot of wax left, so a full 300g pot of wax and 15 reusable cotton strips would probably be enough to do two full legs OR two half-legs, a bikini line and possibly underarms, too.
They didn't lie, this wax washes off like a dream! A little warm water and it just melts away with no sticky residue at all! The wax just dissolves right off the strips, too, although they are still a little pink from the red dye.
I'm conflicted about this product, as there are definitely huge pros and cons for this wax. Pros: It removes hair well, is easy to use and simply washes off with warm water. Cons: It's very sticky and gets messy quickly, the cotton strips are too long, you have to wash the strips if you still have wax left and the red dye does stain your hands.
Would I use I buy another tub once this is finished? Probably not. I prefer my waxing experience to be a little less sticky and I don't like walking around with bright pink fingers, so I think I'll stick to using the Nad's pre-waxed Body Strips.
Would I recommend it? Yes, it really does work well and hair is removed effectively. If you don't mind being a little sticky (remember it washes off easily), then definitely try it.
Tips: Cut the cotton strips in half before using them, it'll give you more room to pull the strip off the in correct direction.
