Actually I never plan to wax my legs. Never cross my mind at all until I bought Veet Wax Strips. This box is RM25+ if not mistaken. There was discount that time so it was below RM20.
I bought it to wax my bikini line *BLUSH* but ended up using it on my legs. This is because before you use it on your bikini line or underarm, you have to test it first if it’s your first time using it. The best place to test based on the instructions is your legs. That’s how I got hairless legs now! For the first time in my life, I’m having hairless legs! ;p I got lots of hair on my legs and some even quite coarse but I never bothered.
So? The result after using it? Really easy and fast. The pain is all right. Piece of cake for me.
However, for bikini line and underarm, I tried few days later after waxing my legs, it just didn’t work well. Nothing much came out.
The main reason is that you have to cut the strip into smaller strips but there’s a problem, see the photo below and you will understand.
There wasn’t enough wax and strength to grip the hair when you cut the strip small. The wax would come out from the sides of the strip that is cut and it’s very messy. ARG! The wax all ended up on the surrounding areas with not enough wax on the strip to grip the hair.
The lesson of the story is that, buy small size wax strips if you are going to wax small areas such as underarm and bikini line. Cutting big strip into small strips can’t do the job.
Love the sweet smell and how quick and easy to use. I do recommend it if you are new to waxing.
There are 4 wipes included for you to remove the wax residue and also to moisturise your skin. If you run out of it, you can always use baby oil.
This is only suitable for big areas even though the packaging stated that you can use it for underarm or bikini line. Well… Unless you have big surface for those areas then that’s different story.
