The wax hardens and you rip it off instead of ripping off the cloth. It's good for sensitive areas, but for large areas, it will crack and it does not grab all of the hairs. For face, I use poetic waxing, which hardens and you rip it off. For body I use hot wax from Parisa with cloth strips or their warm wax that comes flat and comes off with a plastic strip. I even gave myself a bikini wax with it!
