Because Veet’s Wax Strips leave you silky smooth for longer you’ll have more free time in-between waxes! It couldn’t be simpler.

A few seconds is all it takes to warm a wax strip between your hands, apply and remove. Each one has been carefully chosen to leave you feeling pampered and ready for anything.

So now you can always feel silky smooth and radiant. Just wax and go!

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

    Insert Alt Text here
  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.
  2. Insert Alt Text here
  3. Holding the EasyGrip tab, slowly peel the strips apart.
  4. Insert Alt Text here
  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.
  8. Insert Alt Text here
  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: Normal Skin Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
OK, so I'm not reviewing this myself but paraphrasing what I was told by my other half. Firstly she's used other products before and whislt the system is simple in idea, getting a product that does what it says is going to depend a lot on what you're prepared to pay. Cheaper versions don't do such a great job as this one does and whilst Veet is a well known name, finding something to beat this company is going to be hard.

Its value for money (as with cheaper strips you have to use more), it does what you want, its easy to use and overall left her legs feeling great for quite a while. What more do you need to know?

Style Name: Normal Skin Verified Purchase
I've basically just tried out this product. Let me tell you a few tricks you could try to save time and money.
So what I did was I cut a strip in half, making 4 strips instad of 2 :) It was easier to work with this. One strip (I mean that 1/4 strip) can be used two times which I find very cool. It has a lovely bubblegum smell as well.
Instead of heating it up with your hands, try heating them for like 3 seconds with a hair dryer :) it did the job for me. Much better like this.
The perfect finish wipes really are perfect.
The only problem was that it didn't stuck in the shorter hairs, but I'll try that in a couple of days so that I can be completely smooth.
I recommend this product because you can save money, it smells great and I think it does what it should. It's perfect. Oh, and it does not hurt! I mean, of course you feel it for like half a second but that's seriously nothing. Try it! ;)

Style Name: Normal Skin 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.

By Amazon Customer #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Jan. 2014
Style Name: Normal Skin 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.

Style Name: Normal Skin Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have been using these for a while and continue to be impressed. I actually don't use them for leg waxing but just underarm, eyebrows and bikini line which makes them quite cheap to use (though occasionally I will run out of wipes and need to use another method such as body oil).

I imagine if you read the instructions properly that they probably tell you not to do eyebrows or bikini line, but both have been fine for me. For eyebrows I carefully cut the strips across to make about 10-12 smaller strips from each large strip which makes these super cheap to use...and then I follow up the fiddly bits with tweezers because I don't want to wax off my whole eyebrow by mistake!

They work on very short and very fine hairs, which is great as I can't stand waiting for hair to grow. Best used when you apply talc to your skin first to ensure a dry surface and stops the wax sticking to your skin so much (less painful).

The wipes work very well for me at removing the residue though obviously you will want to rinse yourself shortly after as they are very oily.

Best used in an average room temperature, because the wax strips come with 2 stuck face-to-face together. If it's too cold the strips don't separate properly, all the wax ends up on one strip. Too warm and the wax seems too slippy and doesn't stick to hair quite as well.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE on 21 Dec. 2013
Style Name: Normal Skin 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.
