Waxing is the best thing for me to do, especially since I am a mommy. It takes up less time, and I don’t have to worry about hair for weeks or months at times. When I received the Veet Ready-to-use Wax Strips, I was excited!
Veet introduces wax strips with HairCoating Technology – the wax that’s ready when you are. It is effective on short hair (2mm), so you don’t need to wait for smooth skin. Veet has specially formulated these wax strips to act like a liquid during application, coating different lengths of hair, even those as short as 2mm. When you remove the strip, the wax locks in the hair – for effective hair removal. Suitable for use on your legs, underarm and bikini area. The result is smoothness that lasts up to 4 weeks!
Cost: $10.99 for 20-double sided pre-waxed strips, 6 perfect finish wipes.
- Rub the wax strips between your hands to warm the wax.
- Slowly pull the strips apart.
- Apply the strips (toward the ankle, if using them on the legs) and rub repeatedly in the direction of the hair growth.
- Pull the strip back on itself very quickly and in 1 swift motion, keeping the strip as close to the skin as possible. Hold your skin taut to avoid discomfort.
- After waxing, remove any excess wax with a Perfect Finishing Wipes
I first tried out the Veet Ready-to Use Wax Strips on my underarms one morning before heading out to work. I didn’t have time to use my Bliss Poetic wax, and since the Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips are supposed to save time, I thought they’d be perfect to use remove some underam hair before work. Boy was I wrong!
I followed the instructions carefully. My underarms were clean and dry. The wax strips picked up at least 4 hairs. .:SMH:. I tried using another strip, and received the same results. I was left with a gooey mess under my arms. I had to clean it off with the Perfect Finishing Wipes, which worked, and head to work.
I didn’t give up completely on the Veet Ready-to Use Wax Strips. I told myself, maybe my underarm hairs were too coarse. I ended up trying the product on my legs. The hair on my legs are sparse, and fine. I can go without waxing or shaving them for a long time. For some reason, most of the hair on my legs are on my knees. Weird, I know. I ended up testing it there first. I received the same results I had on my underarms on my legs. Unfortunately, this product does not work. I wish it had. It would be a great product. I’m happy it isn’t something I paid for, otherwise, I’d be really upset.
Would I recommend?
I would not recommend this product to anyone. You’re better off shaving, using a depilatory cream or purchasing the Bliss Poetic Microwaveable wax (see my review). The remaining strips I have are going in the garbage.
