I have used a number of different Veet creams over the year and was intrigued to try this one when I first saw it come out onto the Supermarket shelves.
Appearance and Smell
The packaging is effective, colourful and eye-catching, giving you all the details you need to know. The cream is of a pink colour when you squeeze it out, and a thick consistency. Veet states that there is a mix of "Velvet Rose & Essential Oils" and this gives the cream a decent smell, but I do not think that it is strong enough. When you are applying the cream there is hardly any smell at all, and I think it would be nice if the smell was just a little bit stronger.
When applying the cream the sponge is a lot easier to use than the spatula you usually get with the other Veet hair removal products. It allows you to spread the cream to a thickness that you are happy with.. When getting into the shower with the cream on I was a little sceptical about how long it would last, it did however last until I was ready to take it off with the rough side of the sponge. I left the cream on for longer than the 3 minutes I was recommended, as I always do this with Veet products that I use. Once I had taken the cream off I was not very happy with the hair removal aspect, it did not remove the hair very well. It did however leave my skin feeling very soft and they felt as though I had been using moisturiser for a few days. The cream had made the hair softer on my legs but just not removed it. I wondered if it would maybe have been more effective if the cream would have been removed with a spatula instead of the sponge.
Overall I was not very impressed with the hair removal aspect of this cream, but it did stay on in the shower, and it did leave my legs feeling soft, just not smooth.
