Strip wax is runny wax that’s applied in a thin layer using a disposable wooden spatula stick. Hair is then immediately removed by rubbing a disposable strip against it and quickly peeling it off.

Typically strip wax is excellent to use for larger areas such as legs, back and arms, where skin is also less sensitive as it is much quicker to apply and remove. When used on sensitive skin, it can lead to bruising, tearing and ingrown hairs.
