I bought this, unpackaged it and set it up. I put the solid blocks of wax inside the bowl and turned it on the counter in my bathroom. The instructions say you have to wait 90 minutes for the wax to melt, so I made dinner and put the kids to bed. I came back into my bathroom later and this machine had melted 3 pounds of wax out of the bottom of the machine (through the heating element in the bottom of the bowl) through the electrical components and out the underside of the machine onto my counter and then onto my floor. The machine was still on and apparently does not have an "auto/safety-off" function. There was no wax left inside the machine; it had all leaked out. My first thought was how lucky I am that the machine did not catch on fire and burn my house down! This spa bath is a piece of JUNK and a safety risk, not to mention a huge waste of time and a huge mess... I didn't even get to soak my hands and try it out. I am immediately returning this; so far it looks like the seller thinks that I'm going to pay shipping to have the box sent back to them. I'll be updating this review soon to tell you how that goes.... DO NOT BUY THIS.
I am a 42 year old female with arthritis in my hands, which has been getting worse over the past few years (and especially in the winter). I had used a Paraffin wax machine as part of manicures that I get and loved it so I decided to buy one for myself.
If you have not used one of these, basically, it's a small plastic tub that has a lid. You put wax into it and it melts. You then dip your hands (or feet) into it a few times and it gets covered with this thin, warm coat of wax (it comes with enough wax to fill it intiially - you buy refills as needed). You turn it on the highest heating mode to melt the wax. If the tub is full, it takes about 2-3 hours to melt completely. Once melted, you change the tempurature setting to the mode to keep it warm.
Once the wax melted, you dip your hand in a flat position with fingers open or closed (or foot) into the tub . This is done quickly - just dip your hand into it (keeping your fingers still while you do it) and then pull it out. The wax that comes with this is thin, so you have to dip your hand about 3 times to get good coverage. Once your hand is dipped in the wax, you put your hand into a plastic bag and insert it into a mitt (both the bags and mitts come with this product) and you sit for about 10 minutes. If you are getting this done in a salon, they do both of your hands at the same time. But, if you are doing this yourself at home, you should do only one hand at a time (for obvious reaosns). The purpose of this is to moisturize your hands (or feet). I have arthritis in my hands, and use it to help with this pain, as well. You can optionally use lotion on your hands before dipping (lotion is not included here) for extra moisturizing if desired.
The wax that comes with it has a very light clean scent to it. I wasn't sure how to describe the scent, and when I saw that they called it "Rain scent", I was a bit surprised as it smells a bit more like clean cotton to me. But, the scent is not overly strong at all.
After 10 or 20 minutes (whatever duration you prefer), you simply pull the plastic bag off your hand and the wax comes with it. It does sometimes stick to your fingernails when trying to take it off, but this is normal for any wax. Since it's very light, it is not greasy and leaves your hands feeling clean afterwards with no residue which is great.
The reason that I have reduced my rating from 5 stars to 4 stars is because although I have only had this product for less than a year and used it less than 20 times, it is taking longer and longer to heat up from a cold state. It used to take 1 1/2 hours to do that and now it takes between 2 - 3 hours. The other reason for the lower rating is the wax - although it smells great, it is super thin. Even with 5 coats, it is very difficult to remove from your skin. Thicker wax is much more moisturizing and it's much easier to remove from your hands when you are done with the treatment. Once this wax is used up, I plan to order to different brand for the refill.
But, in summary, this is a great product for arthritic hands and anyone in general as it makes you feel pampered and is a great way to relax and treat yourself at a great price. I recommend it.
I got this because I recommend the heat treatment to someone else, then thought I should get one to help my osteo and rheumatoid arthritis in my hands. I have used it several times, and have had excellent treatments. The only concern I have is that to get it to heat up quickly, it rapidly became too hot to put my hands in the wax. Now I put it on medium and it take a bit longer to melt. The wax comes off easily, and I put it back into the wax area and make sure it melts before I put it away.
I have occupational therapy on my hand and the paraffin bath helps. you do have to be careful even setting the temperature lower after the wax melts. I find that plastic caps at the dollar store are easier to get on the hands than the bag's supplied. I have seen some comments that their item was leaking, but i had no problem of leakage. I do have it sitting in a metal baking pan just in case it does start to leak.
This thing is a game changer. As a dude that works out a lot and washes his hands frequently in the cool dry winters in Texas, my fiancé does not particularly enjoy holding my hands. They crack from cold dry air, and there are callouses all over the under side of the knuckles on my palms. Two dips into the wax of this guy and my hands are radically less rough. Like anything, it's your job to take necessary steps after this treatment to keep your hands (or feet or whatever you're submerging) feeling the way they do fresh out of the wax, but this stuff definitely gets you going in the right direction.
On top of that, the feeling your hands get when fresh in the wax is incredibly relaxing.
The unit is great and it leaves my hands and feel feeling soft and smooth. My husband bought it for me as a gift but now my husband and two daughters age 12 and 6 love to use it as well. The only negative is that the wax that comes with it is not the best. I had read another review saying that the wax smelled bad so I ordered some lavender wax when I purchased the unit. I used that first and when it was time to be replaced I used the was that came with it. There was a huge difference. This wax needed to be kept on high or it would start to solidify, and ended up burning my 6 year olds arm. Also, once the wax dries and you try to peel it off, it kind of flakes and makes a mess all over. You really need to stand over the unit to remove the wax so all the pieces fall back in. If I had used this wax first before trying the other, I probably wouldn't have been so happy with the unit. So while I recommend the unit, I would also recommend spending the extra $20 to order different wax to use with it.
