I’ll be honest and say I’m not a fan of waxing! I’m trained in waxing and like doing it on other people (no evil laugh there I swear) but for me the pain is too much. I must not have a very low pain threshold but it also depends on ”that time of the month” because you’re more sensitive to pain before your due. And I have very thick hair and good strong roots so it kills me!
Anyway I was excited to try this kit as I’m a bIg Veet fan and have been for many many years even since it’s time of being originally called, Immac! Remember that!? I used to wax my arms and legs at home but with a wax pot and spatula it’s very messy doing it on yourself, it would end up on the floor board, towels and I’d have sticky hands while waxing!! So I went back to hair removal cream and shaving.
The Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll on kit comes with the wax heater, electrical cable, a base to hold the device, 1 wax refill, 12 wax strips & 4 post wax cleansing wipes.
One wax cartridge lasts 4 applications, they also come in a sensitive formula with lotus flower and almond oil. Refill cartridges come with 12 more strips and 4 more after wipes (though I would advise popping along to your local beauty supply store to stock up on strips and after wax cleanser)
First off I let it heat for 20 mins first of all like instructed but found that wasn’t enough so I left it for a further 10 mins.
It rolled on very easily, it’s a nifty little roller so it gives a nice even layer. Next I got one of the strips and pressed down firmly making sure to leave a lip on the strip to pull and pull as close to the skin as possible do not pull upwards! And you can use the same wax strip another 1 or 2 times
Yes it hurt, but as I say I’m very sensitive and I have thick leg hair. The wax removed about 70% of the hairs of the few test strips did which is ok but obviously 100% is what we’re aiming for. I did a strip on himself to see would there be a difference as he doesn’t have as strong hairs as me from shaving haha!
He didn’t even wince when I pulled the strip off and all the hairs were removed from the patch I did on him! (Yes he has a bald patch on his leg now harhar!) So I think if you have fine leg hair or not too thick hair it will remove most if not all the hairs.
Next I tried it on my arms and I found it great for this! It removed every hair very quickly and painlessly and took me no more than 15 mins to do both arms 😀
Although I won’t be using it for my legs again (maybe himself will want to go totally hair free one day lol) I’ll definitely be buying refills again for my arms. With hair removal cream they grow back too quick, with this I’ll get at least a month before the hairs come back noticeably on my arms. Plus it’s so much easier than using my own wax pot and obviously cheaper than going to a salon! Big thumbs up for the Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll on kit from me!! 🙂
