Right off the bat:  you are not supposed to wash before you wax.  Your hair/skin needs to be dirty so there is something to grip on to.  Secondly: the wax you are using is horrible.  Try Parissa
wax.  It is available at Whole Foods and Ulta.  Buy the leg strips.  They are cheaper as you get bigger strips you can cut down to size.

Make sure you are pulling the strips in the OPPOSITE direction that the hair grows and holding the skin taut.  The strip also should be pulled as close to the skin as possible. For example my pits grow in two directions away from the center.  So I do two strips per side in pulling in opposite directions.  Practice on your legs and arms first before you move on to harder spots like bikini or pits. 

Good luck!  Like anything it gets easier/better with practice.

No problem.  My sisters and I became pretty obsessive about hair removal at a young age.  We have used every product out there so I’ve been where you have been!

That being said my older sis does have lots of allergies so test the product out on your arm(leave a drop of it on the inside of your arm for 24 hours) before using it next time.
