Ouch-Relief Sugar Wax Kit by Sally Hansen: Review

I have never been a fan of really any hair remover products. It has been quite a while since I have tried any, but they either don’t work, are too painful, or some are even too messy! Thanks to Sally Hansen I have found a solution to all three of those problems!
When I heard that I was getting this kit I was both excited and terrified. My last experience with a waxing kit did not end well and I vowed NEVER AGAIN. However, this kit really had me intrigued.

What Sally Hansen says about the Ouch Relief Sugar Wax Kit:

Hair removal can be painful and frightening. But not anymore with the Ouch-Relief Wax kit. NEW Pain-Relief technology in a pre-treatment wipe helps to reduce the pain associated with waxing. This no-heat formula is easy-to-use and mess-free as the wax simply washes off with water.

What I think:
There are a couple really great things about this kit. First I will start off with the most important part. Each kit comes with pre-treatment wipes, wax, wax strips, and a wax spatula. The item in this kit that had me the most interested was the pre-treatment wipes. They are meant to numb the area you are waxing so that it is not as painful. Keep in mind that these will not make waxing pain-free, but will help. I was a little worried that they would not work but was surprised to find that they worked way better than I thought they would! Sure I could still feel that I was waxing, but it made it tolerable for me. The pain is main reason I decided not to do at home treatments before so this is wonderful for me!
I loved the wax included in this kit! It is made of honey and sugar and washes off with just water! It smells absolutely amazing too! I hate that some similar products have a horrible chemical smell. I get headaches very easily and I swear that I can smell chemicals for hours after I use a product, so this was a nice change for me. Also I have sensitive skin and this wax left my skin soft and did not irritate my skin at all!

Some kits I have used came with the waxing papers, but none matched the quality of this kit. The strips included in this kit are very thick and are not as paper-like as others. It makes it easy to grip the strips and stays strong so that you can apply enough pressure to remove the hair.

Overall I really liked this kit. It did not remove hair as easily as I thought it would, but the pain relief wipes made the extra tries worth it. At around $10 this kit is definitely worth the money! I would recommend this kit to anyone with sensitive skin or that does not have a high pain tolerance when it comes to waxing.

You can find this and other great Sally Hansen products on the website here, or at a retailer near you!

  1. this is a great review waxing is best for some people to do

  2. Thanks for the review. I’ve never waxed before because I was always afraid of the pain. I might have to check this out though.

  3. Thank you for doing this review! I have been thinking about trying out sugar wax.

  4. Thanks for the review! I’m always iffy about trying out new stuff like this. If it doesn’t work, I’m usually mad I wasted time and money on it. It’s nice to have someone’s unbiased opinion about it. I’ve used regular wax but never tried the sugar type. I’ll give it a try now!!
