Veet Easy Wax*

When the Veet Easy Wax advert popped up on my screen a few weeks back, I rolled my eyes and muttered, "yer right", to my mam. I'd tried the Veet wax products before, the type which you warm up in your hands, with no luck and left in a sticky painful mess. I was also annoyed by the advert, showing a model with silky smooth legs pretending to wax away invisible hairs, so when I got an email inviting me to try the Veet Easy Wax for free, I jumped at the chance; "Let's see how well it works on my leg hair", I thought.

The package arrived on my door a few days later and I ripped it open:


Inside I had a self heating device and cap, wax refill, 12 strips, 4 wipes, a base and, an electrical cable to plug it in.



I scoured the instructions and popped the wax cartridge into the device before plugging it in. I then had to wait twenty minutes for the wax to heat up.

After the twenty minutes, I applied the wax to the back of my hand only to find the application more sticky than smooth. I figured that the wax hadn't reached the correct temperature and left it a further ten minutes.


mmm leg hair


After that further ten minutes, I applied the wax in a line onto my thigh and stuck down one of the non-woven strips. I rubbed the strip a few times, grabbed the top, closed my eyes and ripped back against the direction of the hair.

And it wasn't that bad.

Now, I am used to having a wax in a salon, so I might be used to the pain that comes with waxing, but for a home wax kit, the pain wasn't too bad.

I kept waxing away and soon I was out of the strips. I'd managed to do both my legs from my knee to midway on my thigh:

Look at that sexy line of leg hair

Negatives:
I was pretty shocked how quickly the strips had run out in relation to the amount of wax I still had left; if I wanted to do both my full legs, I'd have to buy an extra pack for £2.93 for 24.

While the wax did take off the majority of my leg hair, it did miss thin hairs and it was tricky to do the backs of my leg.

I don't think it would be suitable for those with very short or fine hair.

I wasn't quite brave enough to use this on my bikini area so I think I'll be sticking with my local salon for that.

Positives:
This is one of the better home wax sets I've tried and it's great that you can buy replacement wax and strips at a reduced cost.

It really was quick and easy to use, and the wipes got all the wax off and soothed my red waxed leg.



I don't think I'll be hanging up my razor any time soon, but I found this great for doing the tops of my legs as I hardly ever shave them due to lack of time.

  1. I invested in this myself to wax my own legs before a festival, and I was disappointed:( As you said it was good to do the tops of my thighs were the hair is a bit softer but the bottom half of my leg and the backs were tricky!
    Still, a great post sweetie, love your blog. Followed on Bloglovin.

    Love Lauren. xo
