As most of you will know, I am a BzzAgent. BzzAgent is a website that ask you lots of questions and invite you to test products out (if you want to sign up you can do here). Recently they asked if I would like to test out a Veet Easy Wax Kit so of course I agreed, I have to admit I have never waxed my legs before I tend to stick to a good old fashioned razor so this was a new experience for me!
I was sent.....
Veet Easy Wax Electrical Roll On Kit RRP £29.99 (You can pick this up in Superdrug for half price at the moment) and I was also sent an underarm and bikini refill wax RRP £9.99.
In the kit you receive a self heating unit that heats the wax to the correct temperature, a little stand to stand the unit on, a wax cartridge for your legs some very small waxing strips and 4 wax removal wipes.
So to get started you simply place the wax cartridge into the unit and apparently wait 20 minutes for it to heat up, well after 20 minutes I went to roll the wax on my leg and it was near impossible so I left it for another 10 minutes and tried again, no, still not ready, so after a further 10 minutes the wax seemed ready to roll.
I rolled it onto my leg and followed the instructions of what to do next, I am sure you don't need the details, simply roll on the wax in the direction your hair grows, firmly place over the waxing strip, pull your skin tight and then pull the strip quick and fast in the opposite direction of your hair growth and.....
not one single hair was removed, sorry that is a lie, maybe 2 or 3 at the most, so I tried again, another couple of hairs, and again another couple.....this went on for about 10 minutes before I decided I didn't like this at all, I have to say it didn't hurt as much as I thought but that is probably due to it hardly pulling out any hairs and also the wax strips were really small so to do both of my legs would have taken me all day.
I was going to do before and after pictures but there really wouldn't have been much difference, here is the wax strip I used in an extreme close up.....
As you can see, very very few hairs.
For all of the messing about you would have to do to actually wax both legs I would prefer to pay someone else to do them for me! I have spoke to other ladies who are also testing this out and the majority agree with me.
Sorry Veet, I will stick to my razor or I may venture into trying your creams, this to me is definitely not worth the money.
Do you wax at home? What type of hair removal do you use?
