I want to try waxing my eyebrows at home due to small baby - DH working abroad frequently situation.

Does anyone do this and would you recommend buying a pot of microwave wax
and strips or pre waxed strips?

I have mahoosive eyebrows and have waxed them for years, I use a little metal pot of wax that you heat on the hob, I find it more controllable than the microwave. It has a fine ended spatula so there's less risk of removing a whole brow the wax itself hardens and you rip that off, so no strips which is easier.
It's called smooth appeal I think.

Go easy the first time!!!

Like a Lycon type wax? Sounds like a great idea.

I normally have them waxed at salon at same time as bikini line but eyebrows are getting worse and need doing fortnightly and I can't keep up!

I'm hoping it'll be easy enough if I'm just tidying up beautician's shape?

I'm like you..every 10-14 days, just too often to go to the beautician. I find it pretty easy tbh, not had any disasters ( just one small panic when a blob landed on my eyelashes) and it's way quicker and less hassle than plucking,
good luck!

I use a Veet facial wax for my eyebrows. It works best if you can get the hair off in one go, rather than having to reapply for a 2nd try but it's easy enough to use at home.

The Veet one you have to soak in hot water and then remove, so I use DH's insulated mug as you can lift the wax tube out with the mug's plunger and save your fingers.

Thought I'd update. I went for the Smooth Appeal and i'm really impressed with it. So easy to use and virtually painless as it's a hot wax rather than strip wax.

Thanks for the recommendation. thanks
