Veet EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips


Because I like to wear shorts, I always shave my legs and I can't stand hairy legs (my own). If it starts to get too long, I get irritated by it. All these years of shaving has lead to bumps and scars all over. Mum has told me to get an epilator while le bf has bugged me to stop shaving and wax instead. Well, I did check out the epilator at Guardian but it also shaves, not pluck. Wax strips were the next choice. I remembered Laura talking about the Veet ones and picked up a box.

There were several types but I got the aloe vera variant since it's for dry skin.


The EasyGrip (extended roundish end which you hold on to as you peel it off) does make it easier to pull. So far, all the hair has been removed at the root and none broke. Although possible, it isn't very efficient at removing hair that are 2mm long. It didn't make my skin dry and I think it even peeled off my dry skin =/


*For legs, arms, underarms & bikini line only
I use this for my legs but tried underarms once (failed terribly). For my legs, it removes up to 80% of targeted hair. Don't know why some are just so stubborn. For underarm, the number drops to 30% only and it leaves behind a lot of sticky wax!


Instructions..


The wax strips are paired up so there's 10 pairs in a box and you peel it in half to reveal both.


This is after 1 use. As you can see, the surface is not shiny anymore and won't be sticky enough.


I just fold it into half, press the wax together and open it. It will be sticky again.


Since it couldn't remove all the hair, I gave up and tried to just remove as much as I could. My legs were definitely smoother compared to using a razor but it wasn't easier. Waxing was more time consuming plus if you do it wrongly, you get sticky residue. I do notice less bumps when I wax though.

About the sticky residue, you can use the provided perfect finish wipes to remove it but it's actually really oily so you have to wash with soap after that and it takes up more time. You can substitute this with baby oil or any oil.

I think to really remove ALL the hair on my legs, I should use about 4-5 strips. But maybe I just have more hair than normal girls =/ Each strip is about RM 1 so this is definitely not wallet friendly compared to RM 10 for a packet of razors.

Update : Definitely works better with hair longer than 5mm that's soft. I only needed max 3 strips and it removed most of the hair.

Ingredients :

Wax strips : Triethylene Glycol Rosinate, Glyceryl Rosinate, Silica, Polyethylene, Parfum, Paraffinum Liquidum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, BHA, BHT, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate

Wipes : Paraffinum Liquidum, Hexyldecyl Stearate, Parfum. Isopropylparaben, Butylparaben, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel Oil, Limonene, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Oil, Pelargonium Graceolens Flower Oil

Size : 20 wax strips
Price : RM 23
Bought from : Pharmacy
Made in France

Pros : Less irritation compared to shaving, leaves skin smooth, removes hair at root, removes hair efficiently if long and soft enough
Cons : More expensive than razors, may leave sticky residue, does not remove all hair if short, time consuming

My conclusion : Right now, I'm not liking it but it's good to prevent more bumps and scars. Still looking for other alternatives! If you can wait for your hair to grow longer and softer, it works great to remove them! Worth repurchasing.

  2. I used to shave and wax until I bought an epilator, it works much more better. Last time I used Veet cream and it actually burned my skin, therefore now i left it's like few patches of dark scars with some bumps :(

  3. Ouch! Yeah I know those hair removing creams can harm your skin. My sis tried it and it irritated her skin so bad. I've been looking for an epilator for years but apparently, the ones in pharmacies all 'grab & cut', not pull. I did see one but it was wayy over my budget =(

  4. are there like other veet ready to use waxes for other skin types?
    And did you wax when your hair is short (few days after shaving)?

    1. Yes,there is even one for sensitive skin but they're pretty much the same to me.
      Waxing when the hair is shorter than 5mm is not as effective
