Step by Step How To Use Hard Wax Beans

What’s so great about hard wax beans?

Aside from looking cool and being available in lots of fun colors and scents (Aloe vera, Chamomile, Rose Pink, Cream and Black), the plain and simple reason why hard wax beans are so amazing is the fact that they just work.

With hard wax beans hair removal is a breeze. This kind of stripless waxing is painless (the formula ensures that the wax grips only the hair, not the skin), and there really is no need for messy strips and cloths (when it dries, it is firm but pliable and you can easily remove it with your fingers). These beans are the best kind of hard stripless wax there is.

How to Use Hard Wax Beans

No more painful strips

Waxing beans are made of a special formula that ensures the removal of 98-99% hairs and yet it is sensitive enough to be compatible with all skin types. The results are long-lasting (after using wax beans for waxing, I remain hairless for a good 4 weeks), and you can say goodbye to exorbitant waxing salon bills – cool beans indeed.

Step-by-step guide

Step 1: You cannot start waxing without ensuring that your skin is clean, dry, and grease-free – only then do you get the best results

 Step 2: Next, heat up the wax beads until they melt – you can stir them with your applicator stick to help them along. Once the wax pellets have melted completely, we need to get them to a comfortable working temperature. This is super easy if you’re using a wax warmer – simply turn it down to a lower heat setting. However, if you’re using a microwave, you’ll need to let the wax stand and cool off a bit. 

Never start waxing immediately after heating – that’s how people end up burning their skin! Always make sure you test the temperature first. To do this, let the wax cool a bit, give it a stir, then using the applicator stick, dab a little onto the inside of your wrist.

Step 3: Check the direction of hair growth in the area you’re waxing. Hard wax beans have a special formula that does not distort hair follicles, so you can pretty much apply the wax in any direction, However, I’d advise that you apply wax in the direction of the hair growth because this leads to the best hair removal results.

Step 4: Now, dip your applicator stick into the wax, swirl it around and scoop up a small, marble-sized amount on its tip, twirling it around the stick to keep it from dripping back into the container.

Then, spread it smoothly over your intended area, along the direction of the hair growth, making sure you spread it fairly thick (if it is too thin a layer, it will crack and not come off smoothly in one piece). Keep the edges a little thicker than the rest of the wax patch, so that the patch is easier to remove when it hardens.

Tip: work in sections! Don’t try to cover large areas all in one go.

Step 5: Once you’ve spread it on, give the wax patch some time to cool and harden. With wax beans, this doesn’t take much time, and you can check it by tapping it with your fingernail (it’ll make a slight noise once it has set). Basically, it should be smooth and firm to the touch – that way you’ll know it has set and is ready to be removed. When they dry, wax beans firm up, but still remain pretty flexible and pliable.

Step 6: Now, it’s time to remove the wax patch. Use the clean end of your applicator stick to loosen up a tiny edge of the patch which you can grip, hold the skin of the intended area taut, and then rip the patch off in one firm, fluid and swift motion AGAINST the direction of hair growth.

You absolutely NEED to be firm and quick when ripping it off and keep as close and parallel to the skin as possible while you pull (don’t pull it upwards at a steep angle, this might cause bruising). If done the correct way, waxing beans are painless and super easy to use!

Step 8: Repeat the process and keep working in sections until your desired area is completely hair free

Hard wax beans leave no residue on the skin so there will be no sticky post-wax cleaning up sessions required – yay! However, if you do experience a little post-wax redness (it can happen sometimes), apply a cooling product like aloe vera gel, and that will clear it up in no time.
