This item is perfect for what it is intended to do. The come in a reclosable bag which was a big deal to me since my cats love to steal things.

Was purchasing this and received makeup sponges. Still don’t know if these would work. I can only assume they work.

Like one of the other reviews, I found these somedays hard to open up, but okay for the money, they do serve the purpose, will probably purchase again.

Early arthritis runs in my family, but words can’t really express how devastated I was to find my fingers stiff and aching at 35. It was physically painful, occupationally problematic as my typing slowed down (my job involves a lot of digital communication), and just completely depressing to feel old and like my body was falling apart and was never going to be “whole” again.I remember that my mother used to use a paraffin bath (she had it early too), so I bought this.Yes, it took forever for the wax to heat up. Easily 5+ hours.But as I type this, my fingers don’t ache, for the first time in months. I forgot what it was like to have flexibility in my fingers and no typing ache. That’s all that matters. I fee this huge sigh of relief to be ache free and know that it’s not a lost cause. I can do this – I can dip my hands in wax for 10-15 minutes once or twice a day. That won’t kill me. I can do it while I watch TV or relax when I get home. It’s manageable.I feel like commenting on the melting time (slow) or the scent (NICE!!! – rain actually smells like post-rain outdoors) or the effect on skin (Smooth! This is an oily wax and my skin feels soft and moisturized) or the heating unit (plastic, but doesn’t feel as cheap as it could be, and it’s substantial enough) is so tangential to the fact that my fingers don’t ache. But I just included my thoughts on the other things regardless.I’m glad I bought this. I fully expect it to last a long time, but even if I had to replace it every week, I would. If it cost a $1000 I’d pay it. If you’ve got those achy fingers and hands, you know that a day of freedom from that is kind of priceless.

After recent hand surgery, deep into hand therapy, I purchased this paraffin bath to provide some pain relief (ok’d by my surgeon and OTR). Previous hand therapists had used paraffin baths as a routine part of hand therapy, and I had always liked it.As others may have noted, the Revlon Paraffin Bath is a bit of a bother to set up – but since I’d done my share of jam-making as a child, I melted the paraffin on the stove for the first time (do NOT do this unless you know what you are doing! paraffin is very flammable!).I thought the temperature was too hot at Revlon’s setting of 125 degrees, but I checked online, and this is standard for paraffin baths. To make the wax feel cooler, I ended up wearing a bag over each hand before dipping, and another after dipping, as well as the mitt. In this way I am able to reuse the paraffin – it is encased between the bags, which protect my hands from the full temperature.The heat treatments are wonderfully comforting, reducing pain and inflammation, as well as increasing tolerance for exercise. I like smoothing onEgyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream Facial Treatment, 4 Ouncefor a wonderful hand spa treatment!

I wear size 11 to 11 1/2 women’s shoes. It is impossible to put my foot in the wax without my toes scraping the end. I have to kind of dip my heels then my toes. It’s a pain in the rear, but it works.With all paraffin wax baths, you have to deal with melting time, etc. I don’t mind the time issues with this product, it just comes with the territory.One downside of the well is the plastic guard that sets atop of the heating element. If you get a finger/toe past the guard, it’s scorching hot. I think the holes should be a bit smaller to protect the skin.Overall, the price is right and it works. I would recommend it, but if you have the money, get the professional kind!One issue I had with packaging is that the directions were enclosed in a plastic wrap, open at one end. I don’t know if it had been returned or if the manufacturer poorly planned this, but the oils from the paraffin bars leaked into the bag and ruined the directions. I could BARELY read them. The packaging of the paraffin bars is atrocious. Revlon should be ashamed of their half-hearted attempt to package the wax. It truly made the whole product oily. Not appealing when you open the box.
