If you're going to wax at home, this is the way to do it.
I have been waxing legs and underarms for a while, and have probably tried almost every product out there for home use. While there are many products I like - scents, consistency, convenience, etc - a common issue was keeping the wax warm enough to get through the waxing session quickly. Too often I'd have to return to the microwave to reheat my pot of wax.. usually in my bathrobe with bits of wax and whatnot stuck to my legs. Really attractive.
This unit is so simple to use. Set the warmer on your countertop and plop the pot into the insert (you should never pour the wax directly into the warmer!). Remove the lid from the wax tub, plug the unit in and flip the on switch. If you want to use a protective collar (thin cardboard to keep the unit clean of drippings), put the collar on the lip of the warmer first, then drop the wax tub through the hole. It's a snug fit, so you might have to fiddle with it a little.
There are 10 heat settings. I find it easiest to start on the highest heat to warm the wax quickly, then back it off to setting 7 or so for the waxing session. I'm not really sure when I'd ever use a much lower setting because you need the wax to be liquid enough to spread, but there are many types of wax and I haven't tried them all.
This unit is a somewhat standard size for the 14oz/450 g tubs available from several brands. So far I have only found this product at Sally Beauty Supply and Amazon.com but it is WELL WORTH THE HASSLE. I actually snatched it up during a special promo at Sally Beauty and paid far below regular retail at the time. That said, I'd happily pay full price knowing how well it works.
I've had it now for about 1.5 years and use it every month. So far it works just as well as the first day I bought it. I highly recommend it!
