BEFORE USE, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND CAREFULLY FOLLOW EACH OF THE STEPS IT DESCRIBES.

STEP 1: HEATING AND PREPARING THE WAX

FOLLOW EACH OF THE FOLLOWING STEPS EXACTLY.

IMPORTANT: Always remove the lid and the protective film before heating the wax in the microwave or a water bath. This wax is designed for fast preparation in the MICROWAVE and a WATER BATH. Only use one heating method: either a microwave or a water bath. Do not switch from one method to another, even when you are reusing the product for several different applications. It is a professional wax that requires extreme PRECISION from the user in terms of HEATING TIME AND MIXING

1.1PRIOR CAUTIONS

ALWAYS REMOVE THE LID AND THE PROTECTIVE FILM, MAKING SURE THAT NO

TRACES OF PLASTIC REMAIN ON THE EDGES OF THE JAR.

  • All overheated wax can cause serious burns.
  • In the event of a burn, immediately rinse the area under cold water for at least 10 minutes. Consult a healthcare professional.
  • Ensure that the jar of wax has no visible flaws, deformities or anti-theft tags left on.
  • Place the jar in a clean microwave without any other object, including the lid, seal, spatula, cardboard packaging, plate or any other accessory.
  • Handle the jar with care after heating the wax as it may be piping hot.

1.2 PREPARING THE WAX

Remove the jar from its cardboard packaging, open the jar and remove the protective film, making sure that no traces of plastic remain on the edges of the jar. Do not let water come into contact with the wax as it will become unusable. Ensure that the jar of wax has no visible flaws or deformities.

1.3 HEATING INSTRUCTIONS

HEATING IN THE MICROWAVE

The jar must be placed off-centre on the revolving plate. Do not cover the jar when heating. Ensure that the microwave is set to the heating function. If using this wax for the first time, heat the wax following the heating times indicated in the table below. Adjust the heating times depending on the amount of wax in the jar. The times given are for information only and may vary according to the power and model of your microwave. If the microwave does not have a digital timer (precisely indicated minutes and seconds), check the heating time using a watch with a second hand.

Watch the product during heating so that you can stop the microwave immediately in the event of abnormal behaviour (sparks, smoke, etc.).

MICROWAVE HEATING TIME*

FULL CONTAINER 45 seconds

HALF CONTAINER 25 seconds

* Indicative heating time for 900W power

After heating, check the appearance of the wax before touching the jar. If, after heating, the wax gives off smoke or has bubbles, or if the jar is deformed in any way, the wax has been overheated. Do not touch the jar: it must be left to cool for at least 25 minutes before handling. In which case, gently touch the jar to make sure that it is not too hot before picking it up.

HEATING IN A WATER BATH

Fill a saucepan with water and gently place the jar in it, making sure that IT DOES NOT FLOAT and that the wax is not in contact with the water. To prevent the jar from floating, make sure that the water level is not higher than the level of wax in the jar. Do not cover the saucepan. Once the water is boiling, lower the temperature to minimum and let the jar heat up, following the instructions in the table below and making sure that there is always water in the saucepan. Do not let water come into contact with the wax as it will be unusable.

WATER BATH HEATING TIME

FULL CONTAINER 7 minutes

HALF CONTAINER 4 minutes

1.4 MIXING THE WAX

Dip the spatula very gently into the wax until it reaches the bottom of the jar. You should obtain an even texture of thick runny honey.

1.5 PATCH TEST

Check the temperature of the wax before any use, applying a small amount of wax to the inside of the wrist with the tip of the spatula (the wax should feel warm and easy to spread in thin layers). If the wax is too hot, let it cool down for a few minutes. For subsequent use of this wax with the same microwave, adjust the heating time required according to your first use. Be sure to follow the instructions in this leaflet before every use.

STEP 2: HAIR REMOVAL

Before you start, ensure the following is within reach:

  • This instructions leaflet
  • The wooden spatula
  • The non-woven strips

OUR PRACTICAL ADVICE:

Hair removal should ideally be performed in a tiled or protected room, to make it easier to clean any residues of hot wax that could fall on the floor. Place the jar of hot wax on a flat and protected surface (with a newspaper, for example). Any remaining wax can be removed with lukewarm water.

OUR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE:

48 hours before epilating, prepare your skin by exfoliating the area to be waxed, which will make it easier to epilate and prevent the formation of hairs under the skin surface. If this is your first time waxing, we recommend that you wax your legs first. Only wax the sensitive bikini line and underarm areas when you are used to waxing.

2.1 APPLYING AND REMOVING THE WAX

After performing the patch test and checking the even temperature of the wax:

  1. Dip the spatula into the jar and remove a large walnut-sized amount of wax, twirling the spatula around to stop the wax from running off.
  2. Apply the wax to the top of the area to be epilated and quickly create a thin and even strip of wax with the flat part of the spatula, in the direction of hair growth. The layer of wax should not be longer than a non-woven strip.
  3. Quickly place a strip on the layer of wax and smooth it firmly in the direction of hair growth. Always make sure that there is at least 1cm free from wax at the end of the strip to make it easier to remove.
  4. Hold the skin taut with one hand, and take the end of the strip with the other. Remove the strip quickly in one go, in the opposite direction of application. The strip must be removed as close as possible to the skin. To soothe the skin after removing a strip, immediately place the palm of your hand onto the epilated area, pressing down gently.

N.B.:

a/ If any wax remains on the skin after removing the non-woven strip, re-apply a non-woven strip to remove the residue.

b/ a non-woven strip may be used several times in a row.

2.2 DIRECTIONS PER AREA TO BE WAXED

WAXING THE LEGS

Apply the wax working from the top of the leg to the ankle and remove it in the opposite direction.

WAXING THE UNDERARMS

Waxing the underarms requires two steps, as the hairs grow in two different directions (upwards at the top and downwards at the bottom). Hold the hand behind the nape of the neck to tauten the skin.

  1. On the upper part of the underarm: Apply the wax towards the elbow and remove the strip in the opposite direction, quickly and as close as possible to the epilated area.
  2. On the lower part of the underarm: Apply the wax downwards and remove the strip in the opposite direction, quickly and as close as possible to the epilated area.

WAXING THE BIKINI LINE

Apply the wax in the direction of hair growth, generally towards the inner thighs, and remove it in the opposite direction.

2.3 AFTER WAXING

Any remaining wax can be rinsed off with lukewarm water.

  • Never use other products (alcohol or acetone) apart from water to remove any remaining wax.
  • To remove large amounts of residue, re-apply a used non-woven strip.
  • The strips and the spatula can be easily cleaned in lukewarm water.
  • It is normal for some light redness to appear after waxing, which will disappear naturally after a few hours. You can apply a compress of cold water for a few moments to soothe the skin.
  • Do not scratch your skin after epilation as this may irritate it.
  • Avoid any prolonged sun exposure in the 24 hours following epilation to protect against unwanted reactions.
  • Wait 24 hours before using deodorant, anti-perspirant, fragrance or any artificial tanning equipment, going swimming or sun exposure.
  • To soothe the freshly-waxed area, apply a moisturising cream or oil. If you have some wax left for next time:
  • Do not leave the spatula in the jar. Remove as much wax as possible by scraping the spatula against the inner rim of the jar, then rinse it in water.
  • Rinse the strips in lukewarm water and let them dry thoroughly. Do not reuse them more than three times.
  • Adjust the heating time to the remaining quantity.
  • Keep the jar in the cardboard box, along with the instructions leaflet and the spatula for next time.
We advise that you wait 72 hours between applications.
No, as a general rule, waxing the legs is relatively easy and straight forward. You should take greater care in testing when you need to wax your underarms, face and bikini line, as the skin is more sensitive.
Nair Bikini and Underarm Roll On WaxMost Nair products can be used for a period of 3 years from the date of manufacture printed on the pack, unless otherwise indicated on the pack. It is important to follow storage conditions.
Yes, you can use baby oil to remove any remaining wax. If using Nair™ Roll-On Facial Wax use warm water and a clean cloth to remove unwanted wax residue.
Results can last for several weeks. If hair re-grows within a day or two you probably need to practice your technique as you may be snapping off the hair rather than removing from the root. See pack for detailed instructions.
The general guideline for Nair™ Wax products is 1-week's hair growth; however, for Salon Divine™ wax products the hair only has to be 2mm. Follow product use and warning instructions for each specific product.
Nair Hair Removers exfoliate skin in addition to removing hair, so using it before a self tanning product will help you to have a more even tan. Wait 24 hours between using Nair products and tanning.
No. It is advised that you wait at least 24 hours before heading out into the sun, please always use a sunscreen.
As a precaution, we advise not to use any Nair products on skin which has been shaved in the last 72 hours.
If you have no adverse or allergic reaction when testing the product as per the directions for use and precautions, there is no reason why you cannot use it. Conducting a small patch test will help.
Yes, you should. The skin is very sensitive and can frequently change its composition with changes in your hormone levels. Since your skin is constantly in a state of change, we advise that it is necessary (not just desirable) to do a patch test each time to avoid any adverse reactions to the ingredients in our products. This is despite our rigorous dermatological testing process – as everyone’s skin is different, at different points.
