READ SAFETY PRECAUTIONS THOROUGHLY BEFORE USE
CAUTION: OVERHEATED WAX MAY CAUSE BURNS.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Remove the foil seal from the Jar. All traces of foil must be removed before heating.
Do not allow wax to come into contact with water as it becomes ineffective.
For best results, hair should be at least 5 mm long.
Skin must be clean and dry, not irritated and free from creams and oils before waxing.
HOW TO HEAT THE WAX
Only use one method of heating: microwave or saucepan of boiling water. Do not switch between the different methods of heating even when reusing the product for several different applications.
ALWAYS REMOVE THE LID AND THE PROTECTIVE FOIL SEAL, ENSURING NO TRACES OF FOIL ARE LEFT ON THE RIM OF THE JAR.
After heating the wax, take care in handling it, as it may be hot.
Always check the heating time with a watch.
Heat the wax in your microwave as per the guidelines below,

(b) SAUCEPAN WITH HOT WATER
Place sufficient water in a saucepan to heat the jar without allowing it to float. Do not cover the saucepan. Once the water has boiled, reduce the heat to minimum, add the jar and heat as per the table below.
Do not allow the water to come into contact with the wax or the wax to boil as this will render it ineffective.
Recommended heating time
Saucepan of hot water
Full jar: 10 minutes
Half jar: 5 minutes
HOW TO CHECK THE WAX TEMPERATURE
a) Use the end of the spatula with the blue square to stir the wax for about one minute, starting in the centre and working out towards the side of the jar.
b) If after a minute the word NO appears on the spatula end instead of the blue rectangle the wax is too hot. Wait until it cools down. Re-test the temperature by stirring the wax again with the spatula. The wax can be used when the word NO disappears from the spatula end, and the blue rectangle reappears. To speed up the cooling, carefully stir the wax with the spatula.
c) Always test the wax temperature by applying a small amount on the inside of your wrist to ensure that it is comfortable for use.
HOW TO APPLY AND REMOVE THE WAX
If you have not waxed before we recommend to start by removing hair from the legs. Only when you have experience then progress to the sensitive areas of underarm, bikini line and face. We recommend not to wax the same area of skin twice during a waxing session.

To prevent burning:
Follow the recommended heating times (timed with a watch). Take care when handling the heated jar as it may be hot. Check the temperature of the wax using the blue rectangle on the spatula. If it is visible, the wax is safe to use. If the word NO appears, the wax is too hot and should be allowed to cool. If the blue rectangle is still visible, carefully apply a small amount of wax on the inside of your wrist to ensure the wax temperature is suitable for use. Designed for use on legs, underarms, bikini line, arms and face such as upper lip but is not suitable for use on the breast, eyebrows, perianal or genital areas.
