Veet Precision Wax & Care is the perfect combination of long lasting results and skin that's left feeling moisturised.
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
- For best results, your hair needs to be at least 5 mm long before waxing.
- Use an eyeliner or brow pencil to draw in the shape you want to achieve on your eyebrows.
- You can re-use the fabric strips: rinse them with water by hand, and dry them for next time.
- If you’re waxing for a special occasion, make sure you allow 24 hours for any redness to die down
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:
- Time you have available – 10 minutes to get ready for a date or time to really pamper yourself?
- Your pain threshold – let’s face it, waxing isn’t pain free despite the fantastic results!
- 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.

The kit contains a precision applicator that dispenses wax from one end and aftercare cream from the other, some fabric strips and a detailed instruction leaflet. Place the wax end of the applicator in a mug of hot water for one minute, squeeze a small amount of wax onto the area to be treated, cover with a strip and pull away as quickly as you dare.
Any wax that remains on the skin after the strips have been removed washes off easily with water, so if you do decide you don’t want to pull a strip off, you can remove it without discomfort. Holding the skin taut at the removal site is key to minimizing discomfort and maximizing hair removal so bear that in mind if you apply to the eyebrows; you might just want someone else helping out for that.
This has a place for ad hoc use and is gentler than some solutions, which is ideal if you have experienced rashes from other products. However, it may prove too gentle for some. I suspect that a lot depends on the characteristics of your face and I will be using it as a standby product.
Its one positive: it washes off. The stickiest aspect of waxing is getting rid of the residue, so washing off with water = good.
However, that's all that comes off.
For anyone with slightly coarser hair (or anything not baby-fine), don't bother with this. The concept is pleasant in its apparent simplicity (the wax heats by dipping it in a boiling-water bath for a minute), but it doesn't do a thing else but make a sticky mess on your face.
I would have supposed that these were no good for me, with coarser, deeper hair - however, I passed it on to a family member who usually uses ordinary facial wax strips, and even she said that it was useless, so I am inclined to think it just doesn't work well unless you have baby-fine invisible hair. I'll be reading other reviews to see.
If you have coarser hair, I'm sure you know already, but just in case: strip-free hard wax (aka hot wax) is much better for grip and on short lengths. Something like Smooth Appeal Original Facial Hair Remover Wax 40g is much better - I used this for several years up until last month, when I switched to the much better value-for-money Parissa Strip-Free Hot Wax 120g, which I feel does a better job than Smooth Appeal.
So, if for example, you allow the hair to grow to 1/2 to 3/4 CM in length the results are fine.
So leaving an unsightly moustache area for a few weeks will create an idea environment for this product but in the meantime you may need to go out with these. 25x Brown Paper Carrier Bags with Flat Handles - 25cm x 30cm x 14cm (be careful when cutting eye holes)
So, it's ok but you're probably best having the "unsightly hairs" threaded off at a salon or paying 58p for this Epistick Epilator Facial Hair Removal Tool (Comes Complete With English Instructions On How To Use, Courtesy of RazorBlades4u)
A couple of tips - make sure the wax is heated properly (test it's not too hot on your wrist first) and put it back in the hot water between waxings so it doesn't cool down and get too solid to use. Press the fabric strip down firmly and stroke it firmly a few times before ripping it off. Rip it off fast - you catch more hair that way. Don't get water in it. And don't expec to get it 100% right the first time - I found it took 2 or 3 tries before I'd learned the knack.
I've given it 4 stars instead of 5 purely because it has fairly limited usefulness - It wouldn't be so ideal for larger areas like upper lip or chin. I don't really need to attack those very often as my facial hair is fine and blonde, but a prewaxed strip would probably be a better bet. I'll certainly buy this again to use on my eyebrows though - it's a lot less trouble than tweezing!
