It’s my very first post, and I mustache you a question…
do you have a ‘stache?
(Way to start out cheesy, huh?) :)
I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I sure do. :o)
It didn’t work great for my ‘stache.. I think the hairs were too fine (thank goodness I don’t have thick mustache hairs! haha). But it worked great on my thick, animal-like arm hair. (Ok, it’s not that bad, but close!) It was definitely still painful, but kinda fun, in a weird way.
Also, it was a little hard to get the right sticky, waxy consistency. I microwaved it for the recommended 30-35 seconds and it was still really runny. I let it cool to see if it’d thicken and get waxy, but it didn’t.
So I made another batch and tried microwaving it longer, about 60 seconds total, and it finally worked! It got thicker (not super thick, just enough to notice a difference) and it got stickier too.
Since all microwaves seem to cook a little differently, I’d recommend starting with the recommended 30-35 seconds and adding more until it’s just right. Be warned, it will bubble while it’s in the microwave, and that’s what ya want it to do. :)
In case you want to give it a try, here’s the recipe. :)
