Hands up all those girls with mega sensitive bikini area !!!!
I have been using the Veet Rasera Bladeless Kit for a few years now. In hair removal i have one particular problem area, which is my bikini line. Shaving leaves it sore, spotty and very itchy. Had trying waxing there, which resulted in me losing skin and bleeding quite heavily, also very painful as you can imagine. So i had tried almost every cream on the market to combat the hair in this sensitive area, but had never found one with any great result.
I tried this product to go on holiday about two years ago, and instantly was very impresses with the results. I used the sensitive version, although having tried with the other variations, there was no significant difference. Noticbly, first of all, there was no offensive smell. The cream is thick and easy to apply, and a little goes a long way. Use an old towel or clothing as it can stain.
After the alloted three minutes, i used the bladeless razor, to test a small area, and the hair came away easily. I was very impressed with the results after removal, but was still waiting for the next morning to find an unsightly rash, however there was none. Also the area felt very soft and smooth.
This lasted for a few days without any noticible stubble appearing. Whilst on holiday i wanted to look my best in my bikini, so put some on to the stubble. Again after three minutes the stubble was gone, and no rashing had occurered.
This is a fantastic product for us sensitive ladies, and the fact it works on very short hair is an absolute blessing. If this product ever goes off line, i will be a very unhappy bunny.
Also watch for it in stores like B&M, and other discounted stores, where you can pick it up at bargain prices.
No girl wants to be hairy - agree?
No girl wants nasty cuts on her legs from shaving - agree?
No girl wants to go through the pain of waxing - agree?
Well if you said yes to one or more of those comments, this could be the product for you.
I first heard about the Veet Rasera Bladeless Kit when a kind worker in Boots handed me an advertising leaflet for it. It made me think..I could be hair free without a blade or pain? It's a miracle! I went straight to the hair removal section and picked up a can, I bought the lotus milk & jasmine for normal skin (the one in the pink can). 150ml for £6.95, I thought that was quite reasonable.
Most of these "new and improved" - which I don't understand, how can it be new and improved at the same time? - hair removal creams usually either don't work or smell like toilet cleaning chemicals, after first opening this, I realised that it didn't have the same smell of a newly cleaned toilet, but that of jasmine, nice :).
I squirted some of the thick, white cream into my hand and started liberally applying it to my legs, the smeel was strong, but it was nice. After washing my hands straight away (like the can says to), I put on some music, what better way thaan to pass three minutes of having white foamy legs than to listen to your favourite song?
Well as the song came to an end, I realised it must have been time to remove the cream and hope I'd find nice smooth legs underneath. I tested a small patch first (like instructed) and it was all good, so I carried on with my removal.
After fully removing all of the cream I washed my legs under the shower to get the final traces of cream off, which revealed nice, soft smooth legs - the miracle cream had worked!
I always moisturise after hair removal, but for once, after drying my legs, I found that I didn't need to, my legs were as soft and as hair free as ever, it was amazing!
The 150mls lasts 2-4 times depending on usage, i got three usages out of my can.
Caution: Use only as directed. Keep out of the reach of children. Pressurised container. Protect fromsunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 degrees C. Do not pierce or burn, even after use.
I usually shave my legs in the bath using a disposable razor. The results are ok, but brilliant but ok. A few weeks ago my local Waitrose were selling off packs of Veet Immac Rasera reduced from £6.99 to a mere £1.49.Initially I thought the pack contained a razor and a tin of shaving foam! That shows my ignorance where hair removing is concerned! On closer inspection I read that the pack contained a tin of hair removing gel and a bladeless razor. The blurb on the back of the tin promised me smooth hair free legs for twice as long as with shaving and perfect results every time! I was so impressed I actually put two packs into my trolley! So did the product live up to its promise?
On opening the plastic casing I was intrigued by the so-called bladeless razor. Basically this is a razor with double plastic fins instead of a blade. The ideas being that you use the razor when the gel has done its work. The tin of hair removing gel I bought was in a green tin and designed for dry skin. It contains shea butter and lily; both good for moisturising dry skin.
I couldn't wait to try out my new toy and rushed upstairs to my bathroom, tin and bladeless razor in hand. The instructions suggest you carry out a skin test first to check you are not allergic to the product. However I didn't bother with this! The instructions tell you to use the product in an empty bath or shower, so dressed in just a shirt a sat on the edge of my bath. The tin has a removable plastic lid with a spray nozzle underneath. I sprayed the thick, white cream directly onto each leg, and was surprised at how cold it felt. Coupled with sitting semi naked on the edge of an empty bath this was not a pleasant experience! It did smell fairly pleasant however, sort of vaguely floral. The instructions recommend you leave the cream on for 3 minutes but never more than 6 minutes. I sat shivering watching the clock. At the end of 3 minutes I used the plastic bladeless razor to remove all the cream. I then used the bath shower attachment to shower of any remaining cream.
The results were really good. My legs felt smoother than they have ever felt! It was just as if there had never been any hair on them at all. In addition my legs felt really soft, no red patches razor nicks either. However I had kept my shirt on during the process and now noticed blobs of cream all over it! I rinsed it immediately but even after stain removal treatment it is ruined! So smooth legs but stained shirt! The moral being, use this stuff naked!
When I use a razor to shave my legs I usually notice re-growth within a few days. With Veet Rasera I didn't notice any re-growth for about a week! When my hair did start to reappear it was noticeably finer. Each tin of hair removal cream contains 150ml of cream. I have used it about 6 times now and there is still some left. Initially I think I used to too much and now find even a thin covering of the cream removes all hair well. I suggest you experiment!
I had a look on The Veet website and notice that they have a video demonstration of how to use this product. If you are interested their web address is www.veet.co.uk Veet also make a Rasera cream for normal skin. Although Waitrose will no longer be selling this it is available in other supermarkets and I have seen it on sale in Boots for £4.99. Overall I love the results this product gives but really don't enjoy applying it! Still as they say there is no gain without pain!
