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