Do not use on varicose veins, scars, moles, broken, irritated, sunburnt skin, or on skin that has reacted badly to waxes in the past. Hair should be between 1.5mm and 5mm long. If the hair is longer trim it with scissors or clippers before you wax to avoid discomfort and damage to skin when waxing. Check with your doctor before using if you are on any medication which can affect the skin or if you suffer from any skin related disorder Waxing is not suitable for the elderly and diabetics or people taking oral retinoids If you have not waxed before we recommend starting by removing hair from the legs. Only when you have experience, then progress to the sensitive areas of underarm and bikini line. We recommend not to wax the same area of skin twice during a waxing session. After waxing we recommend waiting 24 hours before using antiperspirant, any other perfumed product, using artificial tanning equipment, sunbathing or swimming. Before every use, TEST YOUR SKIN REACTION by applying and removing the wax and a wipe to a small part of the area you wish to treat, following the directions for use. If after 24 HOURS there is no adverse reaction, begin waxing. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. In case of ingestion, consult a doctor immediately and show the outer pack. If you experience any stinging or tingling when waxing, remove the wax immediately with the wipes or with the back of a used strip and rinse thoroughly with water or apply a cold compress. If this sensation persists, seek medical advice. Waxing is suitable for pregnant women but may cause bruising.

5 Steps to beautiful touchably smooth skin

  1. Rub the wax strip between your hands for approximately 5 seconds to warm the wax. Top tip: If you are waxing for a special occasion, try not to do it the night before to avoid any tell-tale redness.

  3. Holding the EasyGrip tab, slowly peel the strips apart.

  5. Apply the strip with EasyGrip tab to your leg towards the ankle and rub the strip repeatedly in the direction of hair growth (knee to ankle).
  6. Insert Alt Text here
  7. Holding the EasyGrip tab, pull the strip back on itself against the direction of hair growth (from ankle to knee for legs) very quickly and in one swift motion, keeping the strip as close to your skin as possible. Hold the skin taut to avoid discomfort.

  9. After waxing, remove any excess wax with a Perfect Finish wipe.

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:

  1. Time you have available – 10 minutes to get ready for a date or time to really pamper yourself?
  2. Your pain threshold – let’s face it, waxing isn’t pain free despite the fantastic results!
  3. 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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The females in my family were a little anxious about using this product - there have been too many comedy sketches revolving round waxing and the agony it causes. It turned out to be virtually pain-free and very effective at hair removal, leaving legs very smooth - and still smooth after three weeks. No itching either.

A couple of things need to be borne in mind. Firstly the hair needs to be fairly long for the product to get a grip. It claims to be effective on hair as short as 1.5mm, but my family found the strips ineffective on stubble. It works best when there is a good length of hair for it to grip.

Secondly avoid using the product on delicate or sensitive skin as it can cause bruising or redness. If you are thinking of trying to wax any delicate skin then it would be best to cut a thin strip of the product and try it before risking unsightly purple bruises!

Overall though a very effective product with none of the agony comedy writers would have you expect. Certainly worth a try if you like to keep your legs smooth.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These Veet EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax, are very handy to have and remove a decent amount of unwanted hair from the areas you are working on . They are best used for arms and legs; you'll probably need a different product for underarms as this can fiddly with these, and would use on the face. In terms of how painful the process is, well that is a rather subjective matter, as everyone have different pain thresholds. However, if you get your technique right then this product is not too painful to use. Will you get Spa/ Salon quality finish? Probably not is the short answer, but it is good as stop gap, also using this you will definitely be able to spread out your Salon appointments, and hence save some money. This is a good product that does a decent job.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I often use these strips and have found that they can be relied upon to produce good results. They are very easy to use, even for a novice waxer, and come with reasonable instructions. They're not too painful - I find them less painful than a professional salon wax. They leave my legs very smooth after just one application, with no need to go over the same area more than once. The result is perhaps not quite as smooth as using depilatory cream, but it does last much longer.

The strips are effective on both long and short hairs. They can be cut to size for smaller areas as well, though it's not recommended to use them on the face. They even smell pleasant, and although they do leave a bit of irritation in the form of the classic post-waxing red bumps, I find that these fade quicker than the ones I'm left with after a trip to the salon. The soothing wipes in sachets which are included to remove any traces of wax also work well.

Obviously waxing at home means that you may not get perfect results as some areas (backs of the legs etc) can be difficult to reach. Also, it's not much cheaper than going to the salon, seeing as each strip can really only be used once (supposedly they can be reused, but they are fairly useless on the second go), and you need a lot of strips to do a full leg wax. However, for me it's more convenient to be able to wax at home, and I find that these do a very good job.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I think the reason I like these Veet wax strips is that they are easier to deal with, they are more mouldable in your hands therefore making them easier to apply to your skin. Have used wax strips in the past but these are not as tricky to use and smell nice too.

I have sensitive skin and found that these did not bring me out in any rash but did leave my skin feeling super sensitive afterwards, in particular around my shin area. Could be as these are for normal skin and mine does tend to be sensitive. The wipes that come in the box are a nice treat but only wished that more were provided. Either that or I was being a wimp when using the strips and kept wiping my skin to make sure no sticky bits remained. By the time I had done both legs, well I was onto a winning streak as got the hang of it. So next time some of the strips will not be quite so wasted as on this occasion, it really is case of getting used to trying it out and seeing just how quick to rip it off. Now if you are the sort that needs to soak a plaster in the bath before pulling it off, maybe think of another hair removal method. Or at certain times of the month when every thing seems to hurt more, maybe not the best time to try it out.

What I will say is that they smell nice the strips do, nothing chemical just a nice pleasant fragrance and get left feeling soft and hair free. Now it does say four weeks, but can not really see that being the case, as usually some very short hairs (yes, have found a few that the strips missed, even though they claim to be able to do very short a hairs). So will checking out to see of they live up to the hype.

The effect it gave was good, but for me and my own method even though needs doing more often is a razor and nothing seems to get quite so good result in an instant and no waiting (going around hairy) until long enough to do, so think I will be sticking to that way.

By S. Thomas #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Jan 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wax strips offer a relatively simple way to remove unwanted body hair, albeit with some associated discomfort unless you are extremely fortunate.

You need to make sure you do a skin test 24 hours in advance of treatment, so factor that in if you intend to use these for a particular occasion - as well as the fact that your skin may redden and be more sensitive for a while afterwards.

The pack contains 40 waxed strips (stuck together in twos), which are only suitable for use on legs, arms, underarms and bikini line. Use is relatively pain free as long as you whip the strip away from the treated area quickly, holding the skin taut whilst doing so - if you don't hold the skin taut be prepared for more discomfort.

The process is relatively straightforward but do check the product details for the dos and don'ts as the strips are not suitable for everyone to use and these are specifically NOT suitable for use on the face. If you have never used wax strips before, I would suggest using on the shins first to get used to the process before trying anywhere else.

The strips are single use although I have been able to reapply when hair removal is patchy on the first attempt. Any bits of wax left on the skin are easy to remove using the included wipes (4 sachets included) or baby oil is also effective.

Overall the finish isn't bad as long as you are prepared to persevere and don't need to rush the task.
