Turn on your heater, turn it up to the highest temperature, and pour in the wax pearls. Wait until you can see and feel that the pearls have melted completely in the heater. Turn the temperature down to somewhere between max and medium, and leave the wax for another 5-10 minutes. Feel free to stir the wax as you go. When applying the wax, the final result is dependent on the wax being the right temperature. The wax should be as hot as possible without being a burn risk. You can check the temperature of the wax by applying a small amount to the back of your hand using an application stick.
Use the application sticks included to apply the wax. We recommend applying the wax with the grain. Wait about 30 seconds or until the wax has hardened completely. Once the wax has hardened, rip it off in one quick, uniform emotion. Pull the wax off against the grain while keeping the skin around the wax taut with your free hand.
Post-treatment, it is recommended that you apply a good moisturiser or calming cream, such as Aloe Vera Gel, to your skin. If you are a first-time user of Pearlwax™, it’s normal for your skin to become irritated, as your follicles are still very deep. An Aloe Vera Gel might come in handy.
The most important criterion for a successful wax is the right temperature. The ideal working temperature is around 50-55°C. You can reach this temperature by warming the wax pearls on your heater’s max temperature and then turning down the temperature, leaving it roughly in the middle between max and medium. Leave the wax at this temperature for 5-10 minutes before applying it. If the wax isn’t hot enough, it’ll settle on top of the hairs instead of sticking to them. If you find that the wax isn’t catching all your hairs, in 9 out of 10 cases, this is because the wax isn’t hot enough. That said, always make sure the wax isn’t so hot that it burns you!
You don’t need to clean your heater every time you use it. If you have leftover wax, this can be reheated next time you want to use Pearlwax™, so you can just leave the remaining wax in the heater and heat it up next time. That said, we recommend cleaning the heater after every 2-3 uses. This can be done using hot water, mild rubbing alcohol, and a soft-bristled brush. To avoid bacteria build-up, we also recommend putting a lid on the heater as you heat, cool, and store the wax.
How long should the hairs be to achieve the best result?
Your hair should be at least 3-5 mm long in order to achieve the best possible result of the wax treatment. The longer the hairs are, the easier it is for the wax to stick to them.
Are application spatulas included?
Yes! There are 3 application sticks included in every bag you order. The application sticks are divided evenly across our 3 different sizes: big, medium, and small.
Is there a difference between the colours?
No, the only difference is the smell – and the colours, of course. All pearls serve the same function and are equally effective.
How many treatments are included in one bag?
For smaller areas, such as armpits and the face, one bag is enough for a couple of treatments – for larger areas, such as legs, one bag is enough for around one treatment.
Which payment methods can I use?
You can pay by credit or debit card (Mastercard, Visa), Klarna, and PayPal.

How hot should the wax be?
The temperature of the wax is a key factor in determining the outcome of your wax treatment. The ideal working temperature is around 50-55°C. You can reach this temperature by warming the wax pearls on your heater’s max temperature and then turning town the temperature, leaving it roughly in the middle between max and medium. Leave the wax at this temperature for 5-10 minutes before applying it. If the wax isn’t hot enough, it’ll settle on top of the hairs instead of sticking to them. If you find that the wax isn’t catching all your hairs, in 9 out of 10 cases, this is because the wax isn’t hot enough. That said, always make sure that the wax isn’t so hot that it burns you!
How long does a wax last?
During a treatment with Pearlwax™, the hairs are pulled out by the root, meaning that the treatment tends to last for 4-6 weeks before the hair has grown back out and reached its full length. At the beginning, some people might find that they can feel or see hairs in the waxed area a few weeks after their wax treatment. This is because hair does not follow a single growth cycle, and the hairs you might see in the weeks after your wax treatment (1-3 weeks) will have been right under the surface of the skin when the treatment took place. Feel free to wax every third week in the beginning to get your hair to follow a single growth cycle. Over time, this will ensure that it takes your hair 4-6 weeks to grow back.
How do I clean my Pearlwax pearl heater?
1 – Pour out the wax
Pour the excess melted wax into the bin while it’s still liquid. Get as much wax out of the bowl as possible.
2 – Rinse your bowl
Rinse the bowl with hot water (not boiling). Use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to remove the wax sticking to the bowl. If there is any wax that you can’t get off, you can use rubbing alcohol to remove this at the end.
3 – Prepare the bowl for the next treatment
It’s important that the bowl is clean and dry, with no traces of water or rubbing alcohol, when you’re done cleaning it. Remember to maintain a high level of hygiene, as this will help you avoid various injuries during future treatments.
You don’t need to clean your pearl heater every time you use it. Cleaning it every second or third time will suffice. If you have any leftover wax in the pearl heater, you can leave this and use it the next time you wax.
