Veet EasyWax Review // BzzAgent Campaign

 

Veet EasyWax

BzzAgent got in touch and asked if I would like to try out the new Veet EasyWax product. I instantly said yes. The last time I used Veet was when it was still called Immac. That was in the form of a cream and all I remember is it really stung my skin and didn’t actually work. So I stuck with my good old friend, the trusty razor. So I was excited to see how this rebrand and a new product would actually work.

However, it gets very boring having to shave my legs every other day, and using a razor constantly, irritates my already sensitive dry and itchy skin on my legs. So if Veet can leave my skin hair free for up to 4 weeks as it claims on the box. That would be awesome!

I received a Veet EasyWax Electronic Hair Removal Device and a Veet EasyWax Electronic Hair Removal Refil.

What’s Included with the Veet EasyWax Kit

  • The self-heating unit heats the wax to the right temperature.
  • The roll-on applicator ensures clean and even thin layers of wax for total coverage Veet Easy Wax™ Electrical Roll-On Kit contains.

  • 12 non-woven strips.
  • 4 post depilatory wipes.
  • A base to hold the device.
  • An electrical cable.
  • An instruction leaflet.

7 Simple Steps To Get Salon Results At Home

  1. Insert the wax roll-on refill snugly into the heating device
  2. Plug in the device. The ideal temperature will be reached after a minimum of 20 minutes and a maximum of 30 minutes
  3. Roll on the wax in the direction your hair grows
  4. Apply one non woven strip to your skin.
  5. Rub several times in the direction your hair grows to make sure the wax adheres well.
  6. Hold your skin taut. Grasp the tab and pull the strip as quickly as you can, against the direction the hair grows. The non woven strip can be used multiple times in the same waxing session.
  7. After waxing, clean away any wax left on your skin with a Perfect Finish Wipe.

It’s waxing time!

After letting the hair grow on my legs to the point where I could be considered a man, it was finally time to test out this Veet EasyWax kit.

Veet EasyWax

First of all I popped the refill into the device and plugged it in. After waiting the 20 minutes as instructed, the wax was nowhere near ready. I tested it, the roller wouldn’t even turn. After leaving it another 10 minutes, got the same result. It took an hour for it to be fully heated up and for the roller to finally be able to turn.

When it was fully heated up. I rolled the first line of wax on my leg and instantly put the strip on top of the wax as rubbed the strip several times as directed.

I held my breath, closed my eyes and pulled the strip off quickly.

HOLY ****

OUCH!!!

It was a lot more painful than I expected.

I looked at my leg and the disappointment set in. It hadn’t removed all the hairs and there was wax still left on my skin.

All that pain for absolutely NOTHING!

The Second Attempt

I tried a few more times on the same leg and got the same result.

I then left that leg as it was starting to throb and started on the other leg.

This time I rolled the wax 3 times over the same spot to get maximum coverage and ensure that each hair
had a generous coating.

I once again held my breath and closed my eyes and quickly pulled the strip off.

I yelped loudly this time which made Matt crack up laughing as did the people he was in party with on the xbox who had heard me through the headset.

If this didn’t work. I was calling it a night. Nothing was worth this pain!

I looked down at my leg and WOW! All hairs bar a couple had been removed! And there was very little wax left on my leg.

I tried this method a few more times and got most of the leg hair free with minimal wax left on the leg.

Test Subject Number Two – Matt 

As Matt was laughing so much at the yelping, I then thought it would be a good idea to test it out on him.

I put a tad more wax on him than I did on me as his hair is longer and he has a lot more than I did.

I’m not going to lie, I actually thoroughly enjoyed ripping that strip off his leg! I was pleasantly surprised that it actually removed a great deal of his hair. I was far less happy with the fact he claimed it didn’t hurt one bit!

He did have quite a bit of wax left on his leg though.

That was enough waxing for one night.

I turned the equipment off and got out the finishing wipes. They were very greasy. Actually too greasy. But they did the job, the removed all the wax from my legs and from Matt’s and did leave my legs feeling silky smooth.

My Overall Thoughts 

Overall I think the EasyWax is a brilliant device if used correctly and by a person who has waxing experience. My first few goes were an absolute disaster but the more I practised the better I got.

I have read a lot of reviews about Veet EasyWax and they all mention that 20 minutes is not long enough to heat up the wax. I think Veet should amend their instructions on the heating up time.

My legs didn’t come up red or bumpy which I was also amazed at seing as I have sensitive skin.

Veet also need to add more woven strips into the pack. I used 7 in just one sitting and that only did 1 half leg  and a couple of strips on the other. 12 is just not enough!

I think that despite this being a brilliant device, I will be sticking with my trusty razor. The only reason for that is it is less painful and quicker. This whole waxing experience took nearly 2 hours, where as I can shave my legs in about 2 minutes.

    I am frequently tempted to buy waxing kits, but my previous experience has been similar, if less successful. It always comes down to shaving being faster and pain-free. Plus I don't have to plan on it an hour in advance. thanks for the info!

      If it wasn't for the pain, I would still use it. I wonder how quick it would be for a person who had a lot of experience in waxing. Thank you for stopping by

    Oooof! Sounds like an ordeal! I can recommend the Veet cold wax strips, so much easier and less painful…and in my experience they actually work and remove the hair. I was my legs and under arms about once a month and it only takes a few minutes :o)
