Fantastic Product but need two boxes for both legs!,
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.
