"This one’s been my go to for years! I pop it in the microwave for 45s to one minute and it’s good to go. It comes with a few wax paper strips but I buy the strips alone as there’s way more wax than there are strips. It doesn’t smell funky, and it does the job." - Maddie.

"She's PRICEY. But gosh, she's good. I've tried a few different hair removal devices in the past, and this is would have to be one of my favourites. After the first couple of treatments you'll be able to see a difference. I'm sloppy with my up-keep, but still manage to nab myself some really good results. You can also download the app on your phone and set up calendar reminders, if that's your kind of thing." - Erin.

"I bought this to do my eyebrows, and it's pretty good! Basically mine were so hairy that tweezing was no longer cutting it and I needed to get to the middle. So, it keeps them neat. But I wouldn't use on underarms or bikini line, or legs." - Clare.

"Go Bare IPL Hair Removal has been my lockdown go-to. I'm on week five of consistent use and I've been blown away by the results." - Kate.

"I bought these on a whim a while ago and learned that there's a big difference between $6 tweezers and $14 tweezers. I thought it was overpriced at the time, but was in a rush. However, it picks up eyebrow (and chin and lip) hair much more gently than my $6 chemist ones and gets a good grip." - Andi.

Nair Sensitive Mini Strips, $9.49.

"I use the Nair Sensitive Mini Strips - they're great for moustache waxing. An absolute lockdown saviour." - Izzy.
