  This classic kit from Parissa (hot wax you heat in the microwave with cloth strips) removed the most hair at once and left skin ultra-smooth in our Lab tests. Testers said it was easy to apply, didn’t irritate skin, and wasn’t unbearably painful. Plus, even though it took a little more time to use than others, testers didn’t think it was difficult to prepare, making it the perfect mess-free choice for everywhere from bikini to underarms.

  Nad’s hassle- and heat-free strips are the perfect intro to at-home waxing. It’s no surprise that testers rated them easiest to use, perfect for beginners — the wax is already on the strips and all you have to do is rub them between your hands to activate it! These wax strips also earned the highest score for not irritating skin, but few testers did say it took several tries to remove all hair.

  Perfect for beginners, this kit comes with everything you need neatly packaged inside: hard wax in a microwaveable cup, four wax spreaders and post-wax oil to soothe skin and remove lingering traces of stickiness. The bright blue color makes this fragrance-free wax easy to apply. We haven’t Lab tested this kit, but our editors especially loved the foolproof instructions on the brand’s site for easily achieving the best results. Best of all? The wax nabs every last hair for silky-smooth skin.

  Cirepil’s hard wax has earned over 16,200 reviews on Amazon! While you won’t need any disposable strips to use this hard wax, you will need a special warmer since the wax comes in bead form (if you don’t want to invest in another gadget, one reviewer said she uses a coffee cup to microwave them). Reviewers rave about how effective the wax is, but warns that there is a learning curve when it comes to application. It may be helpful to watch a few how-to videos before attempting a DIY session.

  Hard wax eliminates the need for cloth strips: Simply apply the wax, wait for it to harden, and pull swiftly to remove hair. One of our editors swear this wax is less messy and leaves behind less residue than soft wax or strips, and the formula works better than any other she’s tried for removing even stubborn, coarse underarm stubble.

  It comes neatly packaged in a microwavable bowl along with application spatulas and post-wax calming wipes, so you’re ready to wax right away. The bright red hue makes application and removal easy. Once applied, the wax can take a bit to harden, so make sure it is fully set but still slightly pliable before yanking.

  Removes even coarse, short hairs

  This pick from Nad’s is a clear, no-heat formula that’s also super-easy to cleanup post-wax, perfect for tackling larger areas on the legs and arms. Since it’s water-soluble, you can wash off leftover pieces from your skin, and even clothing and towels if you get any accidental drips on them — which is helpful since testers did warn application could get a little messy. Testers said it was effective at removing hair and didn’t hurt too much, but that it took them a few tries to remove all hair.

  These innovative strips from Sally Hansen are ready to use right out of the box. You don’t have to warm them for the wax to work — simply separate the strips, smooth on and pull off! GH beauty director, April Franzino, says they’ll save time and cause less of a mess than some other kits. Depending on the temperature of the room you’re waxing in (or where you store the product), you may need to rub the strips between your hands to warm the wax a bit.

  The super-convenient roll-on applicator is the perfect size for applying to underarms for easy hair removal. Testers said a similar Nair roll-on wax was easy to apply, didn’t irritate skin or cause redness. But while the roll-on design is great for stashing in your bag, a few consumers said application was still on the messy side.
