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!
Hannah Scorer tried to use the Boots Smooth Care Wax Strips on her bikini area.
Hannah called the Boots product "the worst wax strips in the world."
Here's a list of things that could have waxed me more successfully:
*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.
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.
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."
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.
