reduces the pain
on 28 June 2014
i have waxed at home for 15 years with veet's hot wax (the traditional one, not the fancy single use crap they have lately). i had always used PAPER strips (rather than FABRIC) - oh man, i was missing!! i'm so glad i bought these.
basically i bought them because the paper strips that come with veet are never enough, and are a mess to reuse. so i came to amazon and saw these, and some reviewers said that using fabric strips was less painful. i thought "whatever", but still bought it because i thought they may give a better finish.
to my surprise, they are indeed actually less painful, both on legs and armpits (laser on other so unable to comment). i would say 20% less pain at least. i don't know why that is, but it just hurts less.
also, they are slightly longer than the paper ones, so one strip lasts longer.
pack contains 100. consistent size & quality, and well packaged (shrink wrapped - you don't need more). you could wash them and reuse, just like the paper ones, but i tend to bin them: much less messy and also they are fabric so sustainable.
i'd say if you are a confident "waxer" yourself, give them a go. as for me, i'm not going back to paper :)
