This paraffin dip does work well once its heated up and you can finally use it. According to the directions the heating time until first use can take up to just over 2 hours. Breaking the block of wax into smaller cubes/ chunks seems to help the heating process, but it still takes a while. Once it's fully heated, you have to turn it down prior to use or it's very very hot.
The wax that comes with this starter kit does smell really good and it works great to soften the skin. Using a scrub on your hands and applying a generous layer of hand cream on the hands prior to dipping allows for a great experience when the wax comes off. I really like Curel Hand and Cuticle cream as the base layer. Dip 4-5 times in the wax and finally let it sit on my hands and provide heat and relaxation to my hand for about 10-15 minutes (I get restless not being able to move my hands). Sometimes I even go through the process a second time.
The amount of wax that comes with the kit could also be increased slightly. While it is enough I find myself having to move my hands around quite a bit to cover the entire hand. Now to be fair I do have longer fingers so smaller womans hand might work a lot better, but just a bit more wax would help. Also you have the option of reusing the wax that you've used by peeling it from your hands and putting it back into the bath to let it remelt. If you don't reuse the wax it obviously would be recommended to buy the wax refills to ensure you have enough for the next time you use the kid.
Bottom line, despite taking a long time to preheat it does what is intended and afterward it does feel great. It also leaves a tiny bit of the fragrance onto your skin which is soft and soothing. I enjoy using it every once in a while to make my hands really soft.
I didn't particularly like the scent but it wasn't horrible for me. Be sure to remove everything from inside the spa.
To melt the wax at start-up I turned the knob to the highest heat setting and placed in a wax brick. After about 30-40 minutes I placed another brick in.The third brick when in after another 30-40 minutes. (The instructions say to break each brick into several pieces---pretty near impossible for me to do that.) After the was has all melted, I placed the plastic liner/tray inside. This liner is what keeps you from being burnt if you touch the bottom of the spa when dipping into the wax.
I keep my unit on all the time at the middle setting - at that temperature the wax stays melted and I have no trouble dipping my hands into the spa. (Note-my daughter said it was too hot for her.)
I have been using it now for over a month without any problems. Since I am the only one using the spa I have been re-using the wax as others have suggested.
My technique: I dip my right hand into the spa twice, wait 20 seconds then cover it in a plastic baggie. I twist the baggie top around my wrist then place my hand into a mitten. I blow both baggies open before I start. I have gotten adept with using the mitten and it doesn't slow me down. I then dip my left hand in, slip the baggie over it, and place it in a mitten. I usually keep the mittens on for 30-40 minutes (which is how long I feel the heat).
For the first few times I was messy but cold wax scrapes up easily.
I have given the spa a 5 star rating - I am happy with how it works. I am not sure if cleaning will be a problem as that would entail either taking out hot wax or scrapping off congealed wax. I will report back if any issues appear.
