How do you remove your body hair? I use Veet Easy Grip Ready to Use Wax Strips!

by xin on August 24, 2012

A few years ago, I acquired a Philips epilator and it has since become my only tool for hair removal. It has served me well for many years, until one day I am finally bored of it.

Veet Easy Grip Ready to Use Wax Strips

I used to think that waxing was really painful, until I tried it out myself!

I got myself a box of Veet Easy Grip Ready to Use Wax Strips, it comes in 10 pcs (double sided) and 4 perfect finish wipes (paper soaked in oil).

Veet Wax Strips

On the wax strips, it has  mini instructions on how to use it.

Peeling Veet Wax Strips

Before you tear open the wax strips, warm it up with your palm first.

This is considered as 2 pcs of wax strips and you can use it both sides.

It’s best to be done in air-conditioned room as you will need to leave 1 strip flat on a surface and work on one at a time (if you are slow). The result is better too as I noticed the wax tends to melt faster and leaving the residue on skin in warmer temperature.

Veet Wax

Make sure the pointy end is facing downward as you will need to pull the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth.

You can warm the wax strip further with your palm at this point.

Veet Wax Strips After

When you think you are ready, immediately pull the wax strip up and admire the result :)

You can use the wax strip repetitively until the pink wax is completely gone or it doesn’t stick anymore.

Veet Perfect Finish Wipes

When you are done, use the wipe provided to wipe of the wax residue on your legs. It’s actually just a baking paper soaked in oil, so you can replace it with any body oil or baby oil.

Washing off with water is optional.

Overall, I think this waxing is quite fun ans easy, but it’s easy to miss out some hair if you are doing it yourself. Depending on the speed of your hair growth, it can last about 2 weeks before you need to wax again.

It’s quite economical and great for traveling too! I used about 2 pcs (4 sheets) at one time for both legs.

Price: RM 24.90 (when on sale)

Availability: All pharmacies or supermarket.

Water won’t work on this – I’ve tried! The wax is oil-based, so the sticky bits won’t actually come off with water or soap. But psst – the TBS body oil works wonders in dissolving the wax. :D

haha, for me, it’s the other way round! I used Veet hair removal cream first then I switch to Philips Epilator, which I am still in love with right now.

I might purchase a Braun epilator in future if I see it on sale, I read quite some good feedback about Braun, it seems to do a better job than Philips epilator.

Philips Satinelle epilator hurts! Braun 5 is soooo expensive. I cant afford, Even Veet also not as clean as you go to wax at salon. Sometimes i cook my own wax but it always harden sooner than i expected. =(

i know how exp is braun :( i have to agree that of course salon does a much better job. but for veet’s price, you can’t really complain. i thought of cooking own wax before, but eventually i gave up the thought because using veet is much more convenient…
