Lansley Wax Warmer Home Waxing Kit Review
What's in the Box
This is what you get in the box:
The electric heater is a neat, attractive looking device, with its transparent turquoise lid and matching temperature control knob.
The removable pot has a convenient 500 ml capacity, easily sufficient to for a full treatment in one go, and which can be used to contain various different types of wax.
The temperature ranges from 160°F - 240°F, with an automatic shut off to avoid the danger of overheating.
The four different packs of natural wax beads include one specifically designed for bikini line, and the wooden spatulas are large sized.
The addition of 5 protective collars complete the kit, to help keep your warmer in pristine condition.
The product comes with a 30 day satisfaction money-back guarantee.
A Look at the Features
The pretty, transparent cover enables you to see the wax as it melts, so that you can tell when it is ready.
There are 3 ventilation holes in the cover to prevent condensation.
The easy to clean, removable can is made from an aluminium alloy and has a 500 ml (14oz) capacity.
The outer, white shell is made from heat-resistant, non flammable material which complies with FDA/FCC requirements for approval.
The heating controls are clear and very simple to use.
The temperature ranges from 160°F - 240°F so that the highest temperature can be used to melt the wax quickly in around 10 - 15 minutes.
Once melted, the temperature can be lowered to keep the wax at whatever temperature is comfortable for you (somewhere between 90° - 110°) whilst keeping it at the correct consistency.
There is a built-in cut-out to stop the wax from overheating.
The four hard wax beans supplied with the heater are in 3.5 oz (100g) packets and in 4 different flavors:
As you can see, the purple beans are specially designed for the sensitive bikini area, made from chemical and toxic free natural resins.
The beans are suitable for all types of skin, ideal for smaller areas such as facial, underarms, bikini, eyebrows as well as legs and arms.
There are 10, large sized disposable wooden spatulas supplied as part of the kit to get you going. You may wish to add to these by purchasing separately, as they are only practical to use for one session. Smaller applicators are better where precision is required e.g. eyebrows.
The protective collars are placed around the top of the pot to prevent the melted wax from dripping onto your heater.
How to Use
The warmer is very simple to use and comes with full instructions.
You simply place the beans in the removable pot, replace the cover and then turn on the heater to a high temperature to melt.
Once the wax is melted and is of a thick, syrupy consistency when stirred, which is very soft but not actually runny, it is ready to use.
Turn the temperature down to somewhere between about 90 - 110 to maintain at the correct consistency.
Always test a small amount of wax on the inside of your wrist to make sure that it is comfortable and not too hot before proceeding.
You do not need strips with hard wax, you just spread a thickish layer on following the direction of hair growth, allow a few seconds for the wax to cool slightly and then remove in the opposite direction.
Any residual wax can be removed with oil - baby oil or coconut oil, for example.
To clean the pot, scrape any stubborn bits with a spatula, then oil can be used with a paper towel to wipe out the inside.
If you have too much wax left in the pot following a treatment, you can save it and re-heat next time.
Here are a few top tips to get the best results when using hard wax at home:
All in all, we found the Lansley Wax Warmer to be an aesthetically pleasing, effective, low cost waxing kit, which includes all you need for several full body treatments.
The electric warmer is suitable for use with most different types of wax and allows you to keep the wax at the correct temperature while you take your time.
