Veet Wax Strips leave you feeling smooth for up to 4 weeks and can be used on hair as short as 1.5mm.

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.

Style Name: Sensitive Skin
I have only just started waxing my legs and I am 27! In the past I have bought QVC raved about hot waxing "systems" which have not only burnt my skin, but ruined my bedroom carpet! I have also tried microwave wax which exploded, and sugaring which smelt like toilet bleach and wouldn't come off once applied. Professional waxing is far too expensive, so that was ruled out... You can say I have been an avid shaver, but even the razor turned against me, and my legs have been left red raw - NEVER a good look - and a constant necesity, shaving three times a week.

After shaving to the bone one day, I took the plunge one final time and bought Veet cold wax strips. I simply rubbed the stips between my hands, seperated them and applied. I was nervous of the pain, but the results were so fantastic that it became mind over matter and I did half a leg (including the knee) in about 20 minutes - not bad for a first timer! I'm glad I bought a second box, because you do need a full box to do one leg!!! That is the only downside to this product unfortunately - otherwise it would have got 5 stars. The finishing wipes are fantastic too. They remove all the excess wax that is on your legs, moisturises them and leaves them feeling silky. You only need one wipe per leg, and you get 4 in a box. The results last around 3 weeks when you first start waxing, then up to 5 after several months of use as your hair roots start to deaden.

A good tip in the summer is to store them in the fridge, as they are less effective when they are over warm and go a bit gooey.

I use these strips to wax my bikini area and legs and they work very well indeed. I'd say the results are as good as if not better than a salon wax. The strips go a very long way - if you're just doing a basic bikini line wax you really only need a couple of strips, and not many more if you're doing a full Brazilian. And, of course, you can cut the strips to whatever size you like before peeling them apart, which makes life really easy. Surprisingly, it doesn't even hurt very much and since the strips are quite large you can rid both your legs of hair in a relatively short period of time. It's certainly quicker than epilating or salon waxing, though slower than shaving.

The place the strips don't work quite as well is the underarms. I think there are just too many contours in the underarm area, so you can't really rip the strips off quickly enough and loads of hairs get left behind along with quite a large quantity of pink wax. You can get quite a bit of the wax on your fingers during the waxing process, which is a bit sticky and messy, but it washes off fairly easily with warm water and soap.

The manufacturers claims that this product can keep your legs smooth for up to four weeks. I doubt that you're not going to get any regrowth in four weeks, unless your hair is very sparse and slow growing. My bikini area usually remains stubble free for about two weeks after waxing with Veet strips, which is perfectly acceptable to me. I've never experienced any irritation or ingrowing hairs with this product, although localised redness is unavoidable straight after waxing. It always fades within 24 hours though, and Aqueous Cream or similar can help soothe it.

And, as a bonus, Veet wax has a lovely fruity aroma, quite unlike odorous salon wax. It's a great product so gets 4 stars - 5 stars are reserved for truly exceptional products.

I have been using veet for about 4 years since I was tired of getting stubble so quickly after shaving. Having used these same wax strips for such a period of time I can say that they do over time make your hairs lighter and they make your hair grow back more slowly and finer BUT you can't see this effect immediately. I notice the effect of waxing over a longer period of time.

In terms of their effectiveness I believe they work well but they do not always pull out every hair but I think this is down to several factors:
- One is my own technique isn't perfect.
- Two I believe can depend on the room temperature, if the room is cold the wax stiffens a bit and as your leg hair won't be in a 'relaxed state' it is more difficult for them to be pulled out.
- The last is I believe how 'fresh' the wax strips are. From my experience, the newer the wax strips are from their manufacture the better they work.

(I have found that the 'fresher' the strips are and the warmer the room the less waxing hurts as well)

When I bought these wax strips off this seller on Amazon it was because I believe paying £7 is the shop is way too much. (I buy them when I can when they are on offer etc). The main problem I believe there was with the veet strips from this seller was the third point (the strips didn't seem as fresh as they could be) But the strips still worked and pulled out the majority of the hairs. It is just that if I were in a shop I would try and buy the freshest as possible.

Overall though, if you want to wax your legs or wherever else for a little less than the RRP in the shops it is worth buying your strips from here on Amazon.

I purchased these wax strips so that I could wax my legs before a spray tan, as my hair grows back quite quickly. I have dark brown hair and thought waxing would help me get rid of it, without it growing back as quickly, oh I was so wrong!! I rubbed the wax strips between my hands so they were hot, I placed the strip on my leg and ripped off...about 3 hairs come off. They're awful for people with dark hair, and no they do not work on stop hair either. Absolute waste of money and I will not be purchasing anything from veet again.
