Veet Ready-To-Use Wax Strips Review
Published Jun 09, 2011
I must admit, my arms are a bit of a hairy mess. I haven't waxed my arms since my first try at the D.I.Y. hair removal wax recipe so I was in dire need of hair removal ASAP. When the Veet Ready-To-Use Wax Strips fell on my desk, I couldn't wait to give them a whirl. I imagined myself getting into a sticky mess with these strips, possibly getting them stuck in my hair or my clothes, but I'm an optimist so I hoped for the best.
On clean bare arms, I followed Veet's motto of "5 Steps To Long Lasting Smoothness." It's pretty straight forward, especially when they have pictures on the strips to guide you (see image below). I warmed a strip between my hands, peeled it apart, applied it on my arms, and ripped it off. Results? A pretty good rectangular area on my arm that was hairless! I was able to reuse the double-sided strip a few times on my arms so in the end I only used two strips per arm (one box comes with 40). I followed up my strip session with wax removal wipes all over my arms, which came in the box. If you run of of the wipes or need to cover a larger area, baby oil will work just fine. Overall, I find these wax strips super easy and convenient to use, and will definitely be putting them to work throughout summer.
