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
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.
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.
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.
Because the bikini line and underarms are more sensitive and challenging areas to wax than legs.
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.

Personally it doesn't work, but it may just be me. Came in good time and good packaging thoughPublished 3 months ago by Alex
Interesting idea, bit awkward to use on eyebrows as that's the area I wanted to try it on. I think it pulled the skin a bit much but maybe I picked the wrong product for the task? Read morePublished 3 months ago by L. Thompson
This looked a really good product from the packaging. I use the tubs of wax and thought this would be a great alternative. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Sue

Interesting to see the negative reviews of this product - I was quite pleased with it. I found it removed hair efficiently from small, fiddly areas like the "monobrow"... Read morePublished 9 months ago by C. O'Brien
