Gone are the days of trekking to the salon and shelling out cash whenever you want a quick wax. Should you choose to wax — whether your face or body — the at-home method is a super convenient (and affordable!) way to get rid of unwanted hair, as long as you do your research and use only the best at-home wax strips. Otherwise, you could end up with wax strips that don't remove all the hair you want, or worse, cause red, irritated skin.
It's not necessary to spend a lot of money on at-home waxing strips — after all, the reason you're waxing at home is likely because it's quick and inexpensive. But you'll still want to make sure that the wax strips you choose are strong enough to work on coarse hair and made with trusted, natural ingredients, so you don't run the risk of irritating your skin.
Another aspect to consider is where you plan on waxing. Some wax strips are larger and meant to be used on legs, while others are more compact and flexible so they can be used on the face. If you're looking for the easiest option, you may opt for a pre-waxed strip, and if you want to be more precise, you'll want to choose cloth strips that are sold separately from wax.
Below, I've compiled a list of five at-home wax strips that will work great on their own or along with one of the best at-home waxing kits. Happy grooming!
