Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll On Kit - Review

I think most of us like the idea of waxing (pain aside) but tend to avoid it as we deem it to be messy
and dare I say it rather tricky, what if the wax is too cold or worse what if the wax is too hot?
Well Veet have recently launched an at home wax kit that is electrical
and takes all the guess work out of at home waxing!

The new Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll on Kit comes in two sizes - one for the bikini/underarm areas
and one for the legs and arms. I had no idea people removed hair from their forearms?
Looking at my little hair arms maybe it should be food for thought but hey I need some fur
for the upcoming Scottish Winter.

Anyway I digress, I have been sent the leg/arm kit and it contains:
- a self heating device with cap
- 50ml roll on wax refill (you can re-purchase these at a later date)
- 12 non-woven strips
- a base to hold the device
- an electrical cable
- full instructions

"Discover the new Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On - an innovative self heating wax system
with a roll-on applicator for salon wax results at home.
Formulated with the same ingredients as the waxes used in waxing salons,
Veet wax removes hair from the root at first application and is effective on hair as short as 2mm.
It is specially formulated with natural beeswax for all skin types including sensitive.
Skin remains impeccably smooth for up to 4 weeks"

To use you simply click the wax refill into the device, plug in and leave in the device to warm up
for 20 minutes then you simply roll the wax on to the area you wish to remove the hair from in the direction the hair grows i.e knee to ankle, take a strip and press down firmly and rub the strip repeatedly then
quickly remove the strip from the area in one swift movement.
I'd like to tell you that it is pain free but i'd only be lying to you and myself
but the the beauty of at home waxing is that you don't have to pretend that you are brave
and can take breaks should you feel the need unlike at the salon.

To finish up simply use one of the provided wipes to remove any excess wax,
I also like to apply a quick layer of Aloe Vera gel too as it soothes and cools the legs.
I tried this a good few weeks ago and found the results to last me nearly a fortnight before
I felt the need to slap on some Veet Cream which is good going for me as I normally shave my legs
every second day or twice a week if using a hair removal cream....what can I say i'm from
a very hairy gene pool haha!

  1. I definitely wouldn't recommend shaving/ waxing your forearms, I used to do it when I was a bit younger but it the regrowth was really itchy. Also, even though I stopped doing it a few years ago I feel like my arm hairs are different/ weirder than they used to be (I think that's just me though, no-one has ever said anything haha). ANYWAY,I would be far too scared to wax my legs myself, well done haha xxx

  2. The more I read about waxing and its longevity, the more I think I'm going to have to just suck up the pain and give it a go. Either that or epilating. Or maybe I'll stick to my razor. #wussygirlalert Cx

  3. I don't mind waxing, I actually find it theraputic (strange?) but I couldn't imagine doing it myself! Waxing forearms sounds like torture! I have dark hair on my arms and they are hairy (how lovely!) but the hair is very soft and fine that I just leave it, and let the sun lighten it in the summer haha! But the Veet kit looks more ideal than microwaveable pots, shame that it's a lot more expensive than the others on the market. x

  4. Don't start shaving your arms, one start you can't stop (really - it grows back thicker & darker). It's not a good idea.
    I like the sound of at home waxing butbi have spots on my legs and I used a cream once which resulted in a NASTY burn so I'm avoiding anything but a razor like the plague! Xo

  5. How expensive is this? Because I'm in a calss for cosmetology(hair makeup and nails) and am doing this on other people so I would have no problem doing it on myself :D

  6. I epilate my legs but like the idea of waxing, it seems quicker and like it would catch more hairs as the epilator can miss the really little ones! x

  7. I've been waxing/shaving/epilating my arms for the last 7 years, at least... I'm Asian so I have dark body hair, hence the need to remove it from everywhere... My hair has gone so fine that the only method that works a pulling out the hair is sugaring!! Yes it's taken that many years, and its the same on my legs. I don't know if you want to wait that many years. But if its really never bothered you I wouldn't recommend you start doing it.

  8. This looks really good! I alternate between shaving and epilating at the moment. I'm still not convinced the epilator was a good purchase though, it doesn't get all the hairs and takes ages to do my legs as well, hence why I still shave! This definitely looks worth a try though, if I can handle the pain of the epilator I'm sure I can handle waxing, well I can try anyway!

  9. Ohhh this sounds pretty good, i really need to invest in something like this :)
