FAQs

AKA STUFF PEOPLE ASK US ALL THE TIME

Q. Will nerdwax work with silicone nose pads?


A.
 YES! Nerdwax works by creating a tacky layer of friction
between your glasses and your skin, so
as long as your glasses touch your face and
are properly fitted then nerdwax will help
keep them in place!!

Because there is less surface area with nose pads
you may have to experiment with how much you apply,
but don't be timid... if you apply too much you can always
just wipe it off with a paper towel and start over!

Q. How long will a single application of nerdwax last?


A.
 Nerdwax is worn off naturally by the facial oils
produced by your skin... So if your skin is more oily,
or you are working up a sweat nerdwax will wear off faster.

Application times can vary from 1-2hrs to a Full Day
depending on how much you apply and what you are doing!


The beauty of nerdwax is that you
can tailor your application to your activity.
So, if you're going for a run, you can apply a thicker coat.
If you're sitting down for an afternoon book with a cup of tea
you can apply a thinner coat! 

Q. How long will a single tube of nerdwax last?


A.
 Depending on the circumstances above...
We estimate that you should get about 6-8mo out of a single tube!

A.

Q. What if it gets on my lenses?


A.
As most glasses owners know dirty lenses are the worst!!
Keeping good quality microfiber cleaning cloths around is a must...

Just wipe it off with a quality microfiber cloth.
