FAQs

What’s the best waxing method?

Always apply an even amount of wax, spread it in the direction of the hair growth (going with the grain). 

Once that’s done, allow the wax to harden slightly and then pull the skin around the area taut using one hand, while pulling the wax off quickly with the other hand, using a gliding motion. 

When you pull the wax off, pull it against the hair growth (going against the grain).


Is there anything I should do before I wax?

There’s nothing necessary but for really great results, we’d suggest a good exfoliation treatment on the area you want to wax, such as a body scrub.  

You could do this the day before ideally but if you do it on the same day, that’s ok too.  Bear in mind that if you exfoliate just before you wax, you risk the scrub’s oil settling around the hairs. 

This could prevent the wax from gripping the hairs tightly so you might not get the result you want.


Do I need to do anything post-waxing?

There are a few, small things that help make your legs even smoother and softer!  First, remove any residue wax from your skin.  Do this using an oil or just hot water. 

Then, we’d suggest applying a soothing cream like Aloe Vera to your skin or you could use a non-perfumed oil.  

For first-time MyCocoSkin users, you might experience a little irritation, this is because your follicles are very deep. 

Aloe Vera will calm any inflammation down and it should disappear within a few hours.


Can I go in the sun straight after waxing?

As soon as you’ve waxed, you’ll find your skin is more sensitive than usual.  So, do avoid direct sunlight and tanning booths – wait at least 24 hours before exposing newly waxed skin to the sun. 

If you are intending to sunbathe or be in sunlight, work your waxing time in so that you have sufficient time for your skin to calm down. 

Don’t ever rush waxing, take your time for the best result!


Is there a difference between the colors?

No, the colour of the wax doesn’t mean there is a difference in the ingredients


Are application spatulas included?

Yes! When ordering a kit from MyCocoSkin spatulas will be included.


How many treatments are there in one bag of beads?

If we consider a treatment is 15-20cm wax strip, you can expect to have about 10 treatment with a beans bag of MyCocoSkin. That should be enough for waxing one leg.


How do you clean the bowl?

Easy-peasy, just throw the excess melted wax in the bin, and rinse the bowl under hot water. After that, use some oil – coco oil works fine – and rub the remaining wax.


Can the melted wax be recycled?

We do not recommend reusing the wax as the results may be different than if you were to melt the wax for the first time.


Can I use it to remove my nose hair?

Of course! Our wax works on all body part, nose included.


How warm does the heater get?
