Because my hair is naturally very fine, I have tons of brow hair that is difficult and time-consuming to grab and pluck with tweezers. Having toyed (unsuccessfully/painfully) with heating wax and applying it to my legs with a stick in the past, I had decided to try a ready-to-use variety.
I totally lucked out that the first product I picked up happened to work great for me. The wax strips grab every superfine hair and remove them quickly and easily, leaving my brows looking clean and polished. There's always an errant hair or two missed that I need to pluck out, but it's infinitely easier than standing at my mirror for what feels like 60 years picking at every tiny hair. It doesn't irritate my skin or even hurt to remove the strip, so the "Sensitive Formula" definitely works on me. I've also used them to wax away all of bf's stray brow hairs (don't tell him I told), so I know it works on thicker hair too.

However, due to their rectangular shape and relatively small size, they may not the be best option for people with a very rounded brow shape, or for people who need to remove a whole lot of hair in terms of surface area. I do wish the vial of azulene oil was sold separately: I'm on my third box of these strips, but still using my first vial. The oil works great, but it's an unnecessary cost to add to every box, which retails for about $9 in drugstores. More affordable than going to an esthetician but not exactly cheap, so I wait for a sale unless I'm totally out and having a bad brow situation.
Definitely recommend if you are looking for a simple, at-home alternative to tweezing!
