Veet Easygrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips
Advantages: great price, removes all hair, easy to use
Disadvantages: Time consuming & hard for people who hate waxing
"WAXING HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY!!!"....or so claim Veet on the box of their new, easy grip wax strips. When has waxing ever been easy I thought to myself when I read it? Nevertheless, I bought them! I'm a pretty much do it yourself kinda gal when it comes to beauty. Now, not to the extreme, but leg waxes, eyebrow tweezes, bikini waxes, simple. I would be much more terrified putting myself in the hands of some so called professionals....with their talons that could take your eye out a mile away!! So when it comes to home waxing, I would consider myself fairly well trained. (or self trained as the case may be)
**Veet Easy Grip Ready to Use was strips**
The packet itself stood out to me. I would consider Veet before any other anyway, but when I saw the vibrant colours I had to have it. I went for the sensitive skin version in the baby blue packaging, but offering the same shea butter nourishment there didnt seem to be much of a difference. The biggest difference between these 'new' strips and my regular ones was the easy grip addition. Also the sensitive strips contain Almond Oil and vitamin E rather than berry. I paid Euro8.65 / £7.70 ish for a jumbo pack which is great value as you get alot of use from it.
There were two size choices, the regular sized box with 20 strips and 4 finish wipes, and the jumbo pack which contains twice that amount. I went for the jumbo pack as I was familiar with the brand and product anyway but for somebody starting out, I would go for the smaller packet just in case.
The strips are simple to use but come with an instruction leaflet for those first timers! You simply take one strip (where the wax is contained in the centre) and rub it between your hands to warm it up (for approx 10 secs). you gently pull the two halves apart to reveal the wax and apply immediately to a clean dry area of leg, bikini line etc. Quickly then, pull the strip off in the opposite direction of hair growth and finish with the wipe to remove any excess wax. Simple!!
I find these strips easy and effective to use. The instructions are detailed and explains exactly what needs to be done. The wax is great quality and all comes off with the strip, or so i found. My legs were left totally hair free which is great as I find with some wax strips, all the hair is not removed. My legs felt super soft and silky and I know that is the main reason I will continue to use them as with shaving you just do not get that result. I didnt find much difference between the easy to grip and the standard but for the same price, who am i to moan. The process is of course time consuming but jobs like these do tend to be and no doubt going into a salon would take half the time...but nonetheless double the money!!
Summary: Great product for a great price
