Woman Destroys Pack of Wax Strips In Savage Online Review

Waxing is an unpleasant grooming task some women (and men) suffer through. Many people can develop a tolerance to the pain—especially if they've had a Brazilian! 

One U.K. woman, frustrated with an ineffective in-home waxing kit, has no tolerance for pain that doesn't even work.

Hannah Scorer tried to use the Boots Smooth Care Wax Strips on her bikini area.

The results were so terrible that Hannah vented on the company's Facebook page:

Boots, we need to have a word. These are, categorically, the worst wax strips in the world. I haven't tried all the...

Hannah called the Boots product "the worst wax strips in the world."

She listed things she thought might have waxed her more successfully:

Here's a list of things that could have waxed me more successfully:
*candle wax
*wax crayons
*George Evelyn, better known as electronic music composer Nightmares on Wax
*the 2005 film House of Wax, starring Paris Hilton.


Waxing should pull hair away from the follicles, but Hannah said the hair on her inner thigh was intact — and covered with wax. 

Hannah said she followed the instructions on the back of the pack, to no avail:

I warmed a strip, stuck it down, endured the brief but childbirth-level pain intensity of ripping it off, and looked down, ready to admire a peachy beach-ready inner thigh. Do you know what I saw instead, Boots? All the hair I'd just tried to take off not even slightly detached from its follicles. Except now, matted firmly into the hair was a thick layer of wax. Have you touched that wax when it becomes separated from its strip? It is so sticky it could have held together the original Sugababes line-up. My bikini line was like the dancefloor of a really questionable club at 3am.

The Internet fell in love with Scorer's hilariously honest review:


Plenty of women commiserated with Hannah's pain:


The waxing fail seemed to be common with brides:


Boots responded to Hannah's post in good humor:

When she tried to remove the dried wax with the wax removal wipes, they didn't work, either. She showered to remove the wax and ended up resorting to a "good old fashioned razor." She closed by saying maybe Boots should give their wax strips to city council as an "anti-climb paint."

Judging by reviews, Hannah isn't the only one who found the strips unsatisfactory:


MailOnline contacted Boots for comment, and a spokesperson responded:

We were very sorry to hear of Hannah’s experience with our Smooth Care waxing strips, and can certainly understand her disappointment. We’ve been in touch to find out more information.
