Veet Easygrip Wax Strips- Review and Uses

Veet Easygrip Wax Strips - WBO

Hi Everyone,

Today I’m going to review the Veet wax strips for you all. Well all girls face this problem of removing the unwanted hair from our body. There are many options for the removing unwanted hair like waxing, epilators, razors, laser treatment but the most easy is to use a hair removing wax strips though I don’t prefer this over cream hair removal. Personally I keep all types of hair removal products with me at all times. Depending on the situation, different things work at different times. Well! Same is the case with Veet Waxing Strips. So today I am going to review one of these waxing strips and its Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips for normal skin.

Hair removal is an integral part of every girl’s hygiene-and-beauty regimen. Whether you are the girly girl, or a tomboy, nobody likes sporting hair other than on the scalp and brows! And yes, we all do struggle to keep up with the regular routine of hair removal, since except laser, nothing really offers a long-term solution. Here we go with the review on these strips which have been in the Indian market for quite some time now!

My take on Veet Wax Strips:

For effective waxing, each strip needs to be warmed by rubbing between the palms for a few seconds before separating them. I normally like to heat the strips over a candle-flame: this way, the wax gets liquidified better, and I feel the strip grips better too {care needs to be taken to not take the strip too close to flame since the paper or the wax may catch fire}. Then I just place and stick the strip on the area to be waxed, and pull it back. Honestly, I feel, these strips are best used by those with fine hair, or between waxing sessions- when you definitely need totally smooth skin but can’t wax again yet (but then I’d rather use a razor).

The finishing wipes that are a part of the pack are too greasy to begin with, but helps soothe the skin and remove any traces of wax left on the skin easily.

I personally won’t add these strips to my regular waxing routine, but yes, if you go on long/ regular trips, these must be there in your bag for smoothening out the skin around 8-10 days after waxing.

5 steps to use the Veet Ready To Use Wax Strips:

At first, wash & clean the area to be waxed & then dab some talcum powder to absorb moisture if any. Follow the mentioned steps one by one.

  • Step 1: Rub a Veet wax strip between the hands for about 5 seconds to warm the wax.
  • Step 2: Slowly peel the strips apart.
  • Step 3: Place a strip onto the shin & rub repeatedly in the direction of the hair grows.
  • Step 4: Then very quickly pull the strip back on itself opposite the direction on the hair growth.
  • Step 5: After completing waxing, wipe up with the veet perfect finish wipe available within the pack to get rid of the wax & stickiness.

Tips for best Result:

  • For great results, wash your skin with soap and water and pat dry thoroughly before waxing.
  • Always pull back the wax strip against the direction of hair growth, keeping the strip close to the skin as you pull, instead of pulling outwards.
  • Be brave- the faster you pull, the more hair you will remove.
  • Wax in a consistent pattern to make sure you don’t miss any hairs.
  • You can re-use each strip until it loses its stickiness.
  • Most women find 8 waxes strip enough for a pair of full legs or a pair of full arms, 2 for a pair of underarms and 1 for the bikini line.

Pros of Veet Wax Strips:

  • Easy to use strips for at-home usage- save time, and maintain privacy
  • Remove short hair easily
  • Comfortable to grip onto and pull
  • Does not irritate the skin
  • The finishing wipes helps soothe and clear skin of any remnants of wax (though may be a little too greasy)
  • Travel friendly (especially long trips).

Cons of Veet Wax Strips:

  • Not very effective for even slightly coarse hair (like on legs)
  • One pack does not suffice one arms-legs waxing cycle
