Hair Removal 101 With Veet

Hair removal, one of the many banes of my life. Shaving my legs and underarms has become a chore I dread. Luckily, I've only cut myself once and that was because I shaved on dry legs *cringe*. 14 year old Lauren learnt pretty quickly from then on that legs should be lathered up before going over them with a harsh razor. Meet have launched a new informative website helping you to find the best way of hair removal to suit your skin type and your preference. I got sent a few things from Veet to try out and let you know what I find best for me and maybe you can find something for yourself.

If your a newbie to waxing like me, the Veet Easy-Grip Wax Strips* would be the easiest option, and probably the cleanest. The deal with these is there are two wax strips stuck together, and to get them off each other you warm them up in your hands for around 20 seconds. Once thats done, you smooth them over your legs in the direction that your hair grows, which is down. Then hold on to your leg and pull in a swift motion upwards, keeping the strip close to your skin to make it less painful. I am a wuss when it comes to pain but this only lasted for a few seconds. My skin was let feeling a bit red after this but the next day it looked normal. And it leaves your legs smoother for longer rather than shaving where the hairs grow back quicker.

If you read that and are still turned off by the mild pain, hair removal cream is for you! This method can probably get a bit messy but it will leave no pain. The Veet Sensitive Hair Removal Cream* is great for this. Before using this, make sure to test it on a small patch before just incase your skin reacts. Once you apply this all over the area desired, leave it for around 3 minutes, then scrape it off with the spatula provided. If you have more hair than other or is just a pain, you can leave it on for around 6 minutes but no longer. Make sure the hair comes off easily as well, you don't want to dig the spatula into your skin. Then make sure you rinse it all off in the shower.

The Veet High Precision Wax* is something I luckily don't have the need for. Like everyone, I have facial hair but it's so light and fine that you can't really see it. I'm going to pass this on to my nona who has a little bit and text it out on her.

Lastly, for some one who has a little more time and patience on their side, is the Veet Electrical Roll On Kit*. This kit contains an electrical wax roll which means it heats up for you. To use this, you heat the device up for 20-40 minutes. This will warm the wax and make it easier for you to apply. You're provided with strips to take the wax off with. This is supposed to replicate a salon experience without leaving home. While I did enjoy using it, there was a bit of pain and it was a bit too time consuming. This is probably a good option for moneys worth as you refuse the device and then just buy was refills once you run out.

For all information on Veet's products visit their website. It has a guide for finding the right hair removal option for you and comprehensive guides to help you along if your a newbie to the hair removal world.
