Veet Sensitive Hair Removal Cream and EasyGrip Ready To Use Wax Strips

Coming into the warmer weather I always get a huge shock and start to panic when I think of the first time my legs will be on show without being safely encased in jeans, pants, stockings or leggings. I have to admit that I am absolutely shocking when it comes to keeping up with hair removal through the colder months and always get caught out because my legs are just too furry to be on public display.

A few weeks ago I was contacted to trial some Veet Hair Removal products and I thought "Great, this will give me that extra motivation to de-fuzz more regularly and get on top of things!"

The first product I tried was the Veet Sensitive EasyGrip Ready To Use Wax Strips. I have to admit that I was a bit hesitatnt to use these at first because of bad experiences I've had in the past with other at-home waxing products but these ended up being so super easy to use and worked a treat at removing every bit of hair.

 These strips come in a pack of twenty (ten double strips stuck together so when you peel them apart you get twenty)  as well as 4 perfect finish wipes that you use to wipe off any excess wax after you're done and soothe the skin and a set of easy instructions.

These strips are so easy to use as all you do is rub them between your hands for a bit to warm the wax, peel two of the strips apart, place one strip onto the area you wish to remove hair from and rub over it a few times, grip the EasyGrip tab at the end and pull the strip quickly in the direction of hair growth. Then once you are done you rub over the area with one of the perfect finish wipes and you're all done!

No messy pots or spatulas or heating or anything else to worry about.

I used these strips on my legs and bikini line and did not get the slightest bit of irritation at all. Days later the areas are still totally smooth and feel great. The strips can be re-used a few times each as well until they lose their stickiness so you should get at least 4 applications from each packet.

The next product I tried was a personal favourite of mine, and that is the Veet Sensitive Hair Removal Cream. I've always been a huge fan of hair removal cream because it's a great pain free way of dealing with hair in sensitive areas such as the underarms as well as treating any stray hairs you find you missed when waxing.

The problems I've always had in the past with other hair removal creams is the atrocious chemical smell that usually comes with them and the fact that some have a tendency to burn or irritate my skin.

Fortunately the Veet Sensitive Hair Removal Cream has a very subtle smell that is almost shampoo-like which makes it much more pleasant to use. Being a product specifically for sensitive skin meant that it didn't irritate me in the slightest either which I was so grateful for.

This cream comes with a cute little plastic spatula that you use to apply the cream onto your desired area (I used it for my underarms as I will never, ever be game enough to wax there) and then you are advised to leave it to do its thing for 5 minutes, and no more than 10 minutes for stubborn, thick hair and then use the other side of the spatula to remove the hair from the area kind of like using a razor blade. Then you are advised to rinse the area thoroughly after use to get rid of any residual product.

After using this cream my skin was so soft and smooth with no irritation at all, even when I applied deodorant soon after.

I definitely can recommend either of these products to those of you who prefer the at-home option to hair removal like me and also if you have sensitive skin and hate the irritation that can come with using other products.

Is anyone else a coward like me and refuses to wax their underarms?

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

  1. Hi Michelle, I'm terrified of wax. I only ever have it professionally done when it comes to waxing. Have you ever tried an epilator? I've used an epilator for my underarms for years now and I don't feel any pain. Btw, I've tagged you in a post. Please check it out. :) Ty's Blog of Epiphanies

    1. I've never had a professional wax would you believe? Except on my eyebrows a few times but I even prefer to do them myself now too.
      I'm not a big fan of having strangers touch me in personal places so I've never gotten up the courage to get a professional wax done :-)
      I also love my epilator. I have had one for years and use it on my legs when I'm not feeling lazy. I hardly feel it anymore. I don't think I could be game enough to try it on my underarms though. I'm a bit of a wuss I guess!


I would love to read your comments!
