FAQs about andmetics

Are the andmetics hair removal strips suitable for all eyebrows?

Yes! Because the perfect shape of the lower swing of each eyebrow is the same for every human being – 2/3 up and 1/3 down – andmetics hair removal strips are suitable for each person on the planet. It is important that the positioning of the individual strips is carried out correctly:

The strips have punched markings to help with positioning. The strips are positioned underneath the eyebrow so that the side with one dot is positioned at the start of the eyebrow, namely at the inner edge of the eye, and the side with the two dots at the end is positioned at the end of the eyebrow, namely the outer edge of the eye. The strips should now be positioned level with the floor.

If there are gaps between the strips and the eyebrows when positioning, this indicates that you should let your hairs grow here to get perfectly shaped eyebrows.

Could I be allergic to cold wax?

Yes! Cold wax is indeed better tolerated and more pleasant than warm wax or plucking individual hairs; application is also more cost-effective and quicker than conventional methods. However: a few people may have an allergic reaction to cold wax (rash, spots).

In order to protect your skin from redness and irritation, please note:
Before application it is very important that your skin is clean and grease-free. The best thing to do it clean your skin and also use conventional powder so that you can be sure that your skin is completely dry. Furthermore, the powder provides additional protection for your skin during the hair removal process.

Please also note: Do not take a long bath before application. Do not use on inflamed skin, abrasions, acne, scars, warts, moles or herpes. Should not be applied by pregnant women, people with diabetes or people taking retinoids.

 

I have not put the andmetics hair removal strips on correctly, what do I do now?

Attached them incorrectly? No problem!
If you have incorrectly attached the strips, slowly remove them in the direction that the hair grows – from the inside to the outside. Now you can simply position the same strips correctly.

What is the correct way to use the andmetics hair removal strips as a template?

andmetics BROW wax strips provide the perfect additional benefit:
If you want to colour your eyebrows with eyebrows dye, the stripes already underneath your eyebrows are best suited as a colouring template. For this purpose, apply eyebrow dye to your eyebrows. You can apply the colour using the attached hair removal strips; it does not damage the strip at all! Remove the eyebrow colour with a cotton pad after the application time and continue to the next step – actual hair removal.

 

What is the difference between andmetics BROW Wax Strips Women and BROW Wax Strips Men?

Because the lower curl of each eyebrow is the same perfect shape for every human being – 2/3 up and 1/3 down – andmetics hair removal strips are suitable for each person on the planet.
The only difference between andmetics BROW Wax Strips Women and BROW Wax Strips Men is that we use a wider strip for the male product, so that a man with more hair growth is normally able to remove more hair in one go.

 

What do I need the extra strips for in each BROW Wax package?

The triangular strips, which you can use for addition applications, fit perfectly between the eyebrows, above the eyebrows or for the ears and nose.  If you want, you can use these strips above the eyebrows. However, we at andmetics do not recommend this; your eyebrows should appear open from below, therefore generating a natural lifting effect. If hair is removed above the eyebrow, this presses the eyes down.

Can I use andmetics hair removal strips if I am pregnant?

Please talk with your doctor about whether you can use andmetics BROW Wax Strips during your pregnancy. It is important to know that your skin can behave differently under hormonal influences, as in the case of pregnancy, and can therefore react differently than if you are not pregnant.  If you have never had an allergy to cold wax, you may now suddenly react more sensitively during your pregnancy.
It is best to carry out a sensitivity test on a small area of skin before the first application. Hair removal can normally be carried out if no irritation appears after 24 hours. In any event, we recommend use in the evening as redness can occur.

My andmetics hair removal strip wax has expired/become deformed.

Please note: Always store your BROW WAX pack at room temperature. You thereby prevent the consistency of the wax changing.
Please store the wax strips in the box to avoid them drying out or becoming deformed. No pressure should be placed on the individual strips.
If some wax around the andmetics strips have run out into the foil, separate the individual strip from the storage sheet and you will see that the original shape of the strip remains intact. The excess wax sticks to the storage sheet and you can still use the strip without any problems.
