What it is: Like a crockpot for wax, this little bowl will keep your wax at just the right temperature, a crucial element in avoiding senseless pain during self-waxing.
Why it's great: Professional and amateur waxers alike found this little device to be a game changer in waxing. "I cannot live without it in my kit," says one aesthetician. This "must-have" will "warm all types of wax from soft wax (strip wax) to hard wax (stripless)," she notes. One woman who uses it at home says she "keeps looking for new places to wax," because this machine makes waxing "fun." Intrigued yet? Another reviewer says the wax warmer is a "must-get if you want to save money."
Before you buy: This waxer, plus at-home supplies, won't run you more than $60 ... but be sure to watch a few YouTube waxing tutorials before pouring on the wax. Replacement wax is around $15 for a 14-ounce jar.
Salon rate: Waxing your lip or eyebrows will cost anywhere from $10-40 at a salon. A full leg costs around $70, and a Brazilian costs $50-75.
