Veet Precision Wax & Care is the perfect combination of long lasting results and skin that's left feeling moisturised.
Specially developed for facial hair removal, the easy-to-use tube lets you apply a precise amount of wax exactly where you need it – eyebrows, upper lip, and chin.
Pamper your skin afterwards with Veet Aftercare Cream enriched with Aloe Vera. The result – your skin will be left feeling not just smooth but moisturised too.
1. Before you start
Read and follow all precautions and directions before use.
Retain outer pack and leaflet for other precautions.
Make sure the skin is clean and dry, with no traces of creams, cosmetics, or oils on it.
2. Heating the wax
Place the pink wax end of the tube into a cup of just boiled water, for 1 minute. Remove and dry thoroughly. Twist the tube to open, and squeeze to check the flow of the wax- if it comes out of the tube and spreads easily, you’re ready to go. If the wax is difficult to get out of the tube, place it back into the connector and screw tightly (as water will spoil the wax) and put it back into the hot water to warm up more. Test the temperature by spreading a small amount of wax on the back of your wrist. Do not microwave.
3. Applying the wax
Squeeze the tube gently so that a small bead of wax appears on the tip. Using the beveled tip, spread the wax in a very thin layer for optimal efficacy in the direction of hair growth.
If you end up applying too much wax or apply wax where you do not wish to remove hair, simply wash off with water and thoroughly dry the area before reapplying the wax.
4. Removing the wax
Place the fabric strip over the layer of wax straight away, making sure there’s at least 1cm of fabric at the bottom which is wax-free as you’ll need to pull this. Rub the strip firmly several times over the wax in the direction your hair grows.
Hold your skin taut. Grip the end of the strip, and pull the strip back as quickly as you can, against the direction the hair grows. Pull the strip back in a swift motion keeping it close to the skin rather than away from it. Be brave – the faster you pull, the more hair you’ll remove. To soothe the skin immediately after you remove the strip, press the area with your hand.
If you have any residue left on your skin, simply use water to remove it.
Wipe away excess wax from the outside of the tube with a damp cloth, and rinse and dry the precision spatula. Don’t let any water get in the wax, as this will spoil it.

Because you need a clean line, separate the hair to be removed with the precision spatula. Start applying the wax beginning from the inner part of the eyebrow. Following the natural brow line, move towards the end of the eyebrow.
For the most precise application, use the precision spatula to target individual hairs. Apply the strip and press firmly. Hold the skin taut, and remove the strip by pulling inwards, towards your nose. Repeat for the other eyebrow.
Hair grows down and to the left and right, so wax the two sides separately. Spread the wax starting from the centre of the upper lip down the side.
Immediately smooth on a strip. Hold the skin taut and pull the strips towards the centre of the upper lip.
Hair may grow in more than one direction here, so stroke with your fingers to find out how many wax patches you’ll need to do. Apply the wax in small areas at a time, and remove against the direction of growth.
Apply the Aftercare Cream, enriched with Aloe Vera, as you would a moisturiser, massaging gently into the area, to leave your skin feeling soothed and moisturised - sealing off the beautiful results.
6. More tips from Veet
- For best results, your hair needs to be at least 5 mm long before waxing.
- Use an eyeliner or brow pencil to draw in the shape you want to achieve on your eyebrows.
- You can re-use the fabric strips: rinse them with water by hand, and dry them for next time.
- If you’re waxing for a special occasion, make sure you allow 24 hours for any redness to die down
Good hair removal is an essential element of any summer holiday. When it comes to hair removal, the choice of products is vast so it’s best to consider the following:
- Time you have available – 10 minutes to get ready for a date or time to really pamper yourself?
- Your pain threshold – let’s face it, waxing isn’t pain free despite the fantastic results!
- The result you want to achieve – longer lasting, soft hair or a quick fix that’ll last 1-2 days
How does waxing work?
Wax clings to the hair shaft (and not the skin), which is then removed from the root by the mechanical action of removing the wax or fabric strip from the skin. Hair regrowth is soft to the touch and you will not need to depilate again for up to 4 weeks.
Is Waxing suitable for everyone?
Waxing is not suitable for the elderly or diabetics, and though suitable for pregnant women, may cause bruising. Certain areas of the body should only be waxed if you have previous waxing experience. It is advisable for children under 16 to be supervised by an adult when using any depilatory method.
How long do I have to wait between applications of Veet Wax products?
Hair growth is very individual so timings vary. Hair should be between 1,5 and 5mm long as a minimum, depending on which Veet wax product you are using.
Why do I need waxing experience for my underarms and bikini line, but not for my legs?
Because the bikini line and underarms are more sensitive and challenging areas to wax than legs.
Top Waxing Tips
- Exfoliate your skin 24 hours before waxing: the wax will cling better to the hair and will be more effective.
- Rub an ice cube over the area you plan to wax, dry your skin thoroughly and then begin waxing. This will quickly cool your skin making the hair easier to remove in one go.
- To soothe the skin after strip removal, immediately apply pressure with your hand.
- Sensitive skin can be susceptible to red bumps after hair removal no matter what depilation method is used. To avoid red bumps it's important not to wax your legs before or after a very hot bath or shower, as this can irritate the skin.
- Try to avoid waxing during your period as skin is at its most sensitive.
- Exfoliate once or twice a week using a body brush or salt scrub to remove dead skin and give your circulation a boost.
- If you get the odd in-growing hair, rub lemon juice on to the affected area – the fruit acids help to exfoliate the skin which should relieve the problem.
- If you’re waxing for a special occasion, make sure you allow a day for any redness to die down.
- If you haven’t waxed before, try waxing your legs first – they’re the easiest, and less sensitive than other areas.
Creams vs. Waxing
Creams work so well because they go below the surface to dissolve the proteins that make up hair. So you're left feeling smoother for up to twice as long as shaving. For the longest lasting smoothness, try waxing. Because waxing removes hair from the root, you're left with a silky smooth feeling that can last up to 4 weeks. When the hair eventually grows back, it's often sparser and softer too. Waxing is easy to use and far more comfortable than you might imagine. So give waxing a try and stop waiting for that prickly stubble to return — it won't.
