It’s summertime and we all know that means a lot of shaving to keep our legs looking presentable in public. I have never had to worry too much about this since I have been blessed with barely visible slow growing hair on my legs. But I know women who have to be a slave to the razor every day. Some women even have to go to the extreme of shaving their arms because of the amount of unwanted arm hair they have. For these women, listen up! You are going to love these VEET products.
I tried using both Easy Grip Wax Strips and the Hair Removal Cream. With the Easy Grip Wax Strips, personally, I think you need to let the hair grow out a bit to have success. The nice thing about these strips is there is no waiting time. You warm them up in your hands and the strips are ready to go. Since I did not have enough growth, I made my 16 year old son be my guinea pig. We did a small section of his leg and in just a matter of seconds we got a nice clear surface on his leg. He said it hurt a bit, but became numb pretty quick and that was that.
The Hair Removal Cream works great. The smell is one thing you have to put up with for the luxury of silky smooth legs. After applying the cream you do have to wait and this being my first time, I thought that was bit annoying. However if 5 minutes equates to many days of not needing to shave, if I needed to shave every day, the wait would be well worth it. I had to wait about 6 minutes and some areas I waited too long. The product dried and I was not able to get it off with the spatula, oops.
A couple of benefits to point out about the cream- I did not get any razor burns from the dull blade I am usually left with, thanks to a big family, and no nicks around my ankles or knees. When I was drying my leg off I noticed a couple of tiny stray hairs around my ankles, but all I did was go over it with my towel and they came right off.
All in all, I was very happy with the VEET products. This was my first time using anything like this. Although I am not the type of person who needs this kind of product, I know that there are many women out there who could use this and be happy with the results and how long their silky smooth legs will last.
