How to Choose the Best Wax Kit

Nova wax kits for at home or professional use. mini wax kit and professional wax kit

Waxing is known to be one of the most reliable and long lasting forms of hair removal. Its surge in popularity over the years has also been matched with an influx of waxing products on the market - some good and some very, very bad.

With so many brands on the market and various formulas to filter through, choosing the best wax kit for yourself can seem incredibly overwhelming. This is exactly why Nova Wax was formed.

Hard Wax guru and brow artist extraordinaire, Liz Lugo, created Nova Wax to solve the issue of an overwhelming wax market. After years of experimenting with various European wax formulas, there was never one formula that was it for her. She wished that she could take the elasticity of one formula and combine it with the fast-drying element of another, or have her favorite strong formula be gentle enough for her sensitive skin clients. Since there was not a formula that existed to suit all of her needs as an esthetician, she decided to create her own.

Nova Wax is a luxurious formula that can do it all AND is a hard wax that works wonderfully on sensitive skin. There is no need to worry about stocking up on different formulas because you can trust that Nova will work effectively fine hair, coarse hair, dry skin, and sensitive skin. For estheticians, you can confidently use Nova Wax because it was born from the needs of an esthetician herself - not a company *thinking* about what you need. For the at-home waxer, you have access to a professional-quality wax that is normally restricted to licensed individuals. For both the esthetician and the at-home waxer, we also provide you with the tips and tricks to successfully master Nova Wax - no matter what your skill level is! 

When choosing the right wax kit for yourself, choosing the right wax formula is at the top of the list. There are a lot of waxes on the market that are made with low-quality ingredients that not only irritate your skin, but also do not remove hair effectively. Instead of finishing an area in one to two strips you will need to lay multiple strips to fully remove all the hair, and laying a ton of strips on the same area can lead to burning and skin lifting. The price tag of these wax kits may seem appealing, but you’re doing more harm than good to your skin AND your wallet in the long run. Your skin is fragile, treat it properly with high-quality products! Nova Wax kits are the best hard wax kits on the market- here’s why:

  1. We provide you with top-quality wax crafted by an esthetician herself
  2. Our warmers heat the wax effectively, are easy to use, and are sleek in design
  3. Spatulas are provided so you do not need to purchase any supplemental materials
  4. We provide you with the best tips and video demonstrations to use Nova Wax properly, whether you’re a waxing newbie or a licensed pro! 


Nova Wax has two wonderful kits to satisfy your waxing needs. You can choose one (or both!) depending on what your waxing goals are!

The Nova Mini Wax kit is a cult-favorite (this baby was sold out for over 2 months at one point!) With this kit, you get: 

  • 1 Facial Wax Warmer
  • 1 Box of Nova Wax 500g
  • 1 Pack of 100 of 4.5in Spatulas

The stylish, cylindrical design of the the Mini Wax Warmer features an adjustable temperature dial with six heating levels. The convenient temperature indicator light turns on when you set a temperature and off once the warmer has stabilized at the desired temperature. The lockable lid ensures safety and helps to maintain the wax at the desired temperature.

The Nova Mini Wax Warmer Kit is the best waxing kit for the face. The sleek, compact warmer holds 125g/4.4 oz of wax, making it ideal for small areas like the eyebrows. Depending on your hair growth, the mini wax kit could also be used for at-home underarm waxing or at-home bikini line waxing with some minimal refilling. Keep in mind that if you are completely new to waxing, it will take some time to get the hang of waxing yourself so you may end up using a bit more wax than normal - and that’s okay! Once you learn how to control the wax on your spatula and apply it properly, you’ll be able to get a gauge on how much wax a certain area requires. 

The Mini Wax Kit is not only for newbies or at-home waxers, this kit is also one of the best eyebrow waxing kits for pros! If you are a professional esthetician or cosmetologist thinking of adding small facial waxing services to your treatment menu, or you’re an esthetician that specializes in brows - this waxing kit is a stellar choice for you! The small, compact design of the wax warmer also makes this waxing kit ideal for traveling and on-the-go estheticians.

The Nova Professional Wax Kit is Liz Lugo’s personal favorite, and below is what comes in the kit:

  • 1 Professional Wax Warmer
  • 1 box of Nova Wax 1000g hard wax
  • 1 Pack of 100 4.5 inch spatulas 
  • 1 Pack of 100 6 inch spatulas 

This kit is the best hard wax kit on the market! The professional warmer holds 1 pound of loose wax and is designed to beautifully melt Nova Wax to a perfect consistency with an adjustable temperature dial notated with degrees. The warmer also features a removable tin for easy clean-up. Wax can be heated directly inside the well of the warmer, without the tin, for a more direct heating process. This warmer can also fit soft wax cans!

Don’t let the “professional” title steer you away if you’re an at-home user. This wax kit is also a wonderful, full body at-home waxing kit! The larger capacity of the Professional warmer gives you the ultimate flexibility with waxing so you can wax larger areas like your legs, or multiple small areas at once! It comes with two different spatula sizes - so you can use the kit for at-home facial waxing and at-home body waxing! The warmer is also lightweight and relatively small in size, making it easy to store away in your bathroom without taking up too much space. 

Whether you are on the hunt for the best eyebrow waxing kit or searching for a high-quality at home waxing kit for sensitive skin, look no further than Nova Wax. You can trust our luxurious waxing kits and monthly blogs with tips and tricks will take your waxing game to the next level.
