I am going on holiday soon and it will be hot and sunny and I will be by the pool in my swimming costume so I wanted to make sure that my bikini line was up to scratch and nice and neat and tidy with no exposed hairs, not a nice look if it isn't. I don't use wax strips as I think the pain would be unbearable and I don't shave as if I do I get lots of little red bobbles and sore patches on my bikini line.
I like to use hair removal cream and my favourite brand is Veet as I have used this for years and always got good results with it. On my last trip to Boots to pick up my regular Veet cream I saw this Veet spray on hair removal cream and decided to give it a go as I thought it would definitely be easier to apply and use than the regular cream.
I was definitely correct. The application of this cream is amazingly quick and easy and what I like is that you can target the spray exactly where you want it. The spray comes out quickly and easily in a white puff and then it instantly foams up which I really like as then it stays on the area where you have sprayed it and does not drip off like cream sometimes does.
On the back of the can we are told, "Veet spray on hair removal cream works close to the root even on short hair , leaving your skin touchably smooth. The spray on method means you can easily cover your hard to reach areas like the back of your leg, quickly and with no mess. The formula is enriched with Aloe Vera and vitamin E, known for their soothing properties. So you'll have not just smooth but silky soft, cared for skin - and hair regrowth feels softer too."
I do find that with the spray its so easy to reach all the places I need to such as right underneath and those hard to reach back bottom parts (sorry to be a bit rude!!) The foam then clings to the area until I need to wash it off whilst working its magic. The cream not only works on bikini lines but legs, arms and underarms as well although it says you are not supposed to sue it on your hair and your face.
You are supposed to leave the cream on for no longer than 10 minutes so I usually leave it on for about 9 minutes, well, I want to make sure all the hairs are gone. Then I simply wash it off in the shower. The can comes with a little plastic curved applicator wand which you can use to either spread the cream on initially or I use it to scrap my dead hairs off afterwards. They go all shrivelled and they do need a bit of a helping hand to scrap them off but they come away from my body easily and I am left with a really soft bikini line and no hairs. I would say that the look lasts for quite a few days before I get regrowth which is fine as it's so quick and easy to do.
The cream does have that familiar hair removal smell which although not pleasant is not that much of an annoying smell. It works really well for me and I definitely recommend it for all your hair removal needs.
I'm a woman of convenience.. If there is a product out there promising to make my life easier I'll jump at the chance to buy it, whether its hair removal or car insurance! I don't have a massive hair problem, the hair on my legs are quite fine so I don't bother too much about hair removal but sometimes I like that silky feeling and I've used other veer products so how different is the spray on stuff? Sounded like a great idea to me!
Packaging: I quite liked the packaging as I've used hair removal creams before and they come in those big bulky boxes which look rather clinical in the bathroom cabinet (my boyfriend once thought I had a jumbo tube of haemorrhoid cream disguised as hair removal) and just generally doesn't fit in with my pink and girlie products! The Veet Hair Removal Spray looks lovely and girly and what I loved about the packaging as that if you're like me and don't like to tell the world you'll definitely be shaving your legs in the near future (ie carrying a Venus razor in your bag) this can be disguised as deodorant! The spray is quite fiddly and upon trying it for the first time I ended up with half the product all over my bathroom floor and sink!
Application: when spraying the product and ensuring I'd covered all areas I was convinced I wasn't using enough which then resulted in using the entire can during one application. The product absolutely stinks, there is no getting away from the fact that it smells awful and it took about 2 days from the smell to leave my bathroom. I always leave the cream on for the maximum time to ensure I get all those pesky little hairs and found the little applicator that came with the product really convenient and easy to use, and you can flick it over the the smaller part for a more precise removal of the cream.
Results: the results were alright, not mind blowing or incredibly impressive. My skin felt silky for about 12 hours then the hair started to grow back again giving the product a similar result as shaving. To be honest, for what I paid for this product and how expensive veet is (I've seen it in some shops for up to £6/7) I feel like its definitely not worth it. Spray on veet in theory seems like a great idea and is convenient for the consumer, but in reality you can just go buy a good (and cheaper) razor with some shaving foam and achieve the same results minus the mess and terrible smell.
Removing hair is a pain in itself so finding the product that gets it done fast and suits your skin is necessary! For me, the first thing my mum introduced me to was Veet because it is the fastest and simplest way to remove hair. I noticed that it irritated me from day one but I thought that was just how it worked! I thought it was normal because at the end of the day I was removing hair, It had to be painful in some way or the other. I left it on for 5-6 minutes, as recommended, then with the plastic scraper that came with it, I removed the cream and my unwanted hair came off with it. It was pretty simple to be honest. But whether it's my skin or the cream, I will not be using this veet hair removal spray again. It smells very intense and unpleasant and just gives me a bad rash every time.
I gave it a few tries before I gave up on it and found I had a bad reaction every single time. I felt uncomfortable and itchy in public, I spent time standing under cold water when I had the chance and It turned out to be a nightmare.
Ever since I tried waxing I have stuck to it and it has worked wonders for me, but there are some days when my hair is not long enough to wax but still needs removing, say if I opt for a short skirt or a dress, and veet seems to be the only option but I won't dare go near it again! I would rather bleach my legs than remove them with veet.
I purchased it and wasn't pleased at all. I will blame it on my sensitive skin because I know so many people swear by veet but I can say with 100% certainty that this was not for me.
I wish it worked because it was expensive, above 7 pounds, and it is pretty convenient to use if necessary. It came really nicely packaged in a bright pink can and I really found it appealing to look at. It also foams up nicely and is easily applied to the skin, much like a very foamy cream. It's a real shame I wouldn't recommend it to anyone or use it myself ever.
There is no doubt that the fact this product sprays on makes it easier to apply and less messy than other products. It saves you time, most significantly when using on large areas such as your legs. This means that it is quick and practical for last minute applications when you desperately need to remove hair!
The smell of the spray is slightly overpowering and this chemical smell lingers on both the skin and the air around you even after the product is removed. However, it does not last too long like the smells some other creams produce.
One of the main problems with this product is the cream itself. It tends to remove most hairs, but probably not as effectively as it should. Although, an advantage is that the hairs seem to take slightly longer to grow back than with shaving (about 4 days on average before another application is required). The irritation caused by the cream though is the reason that I will rarely use this product. I find that it is hard to wash off, and this means that you have to scrub hard to remove it, causing the area to become inflamed. Even when the product comes off without having to do this, it often makes the skin red and quite sore to the touch.
Overall, this cream is probably not worth the hassle if you have sensitive skin like me. Despite not causing the same level of pain as waxing, the pain is not worth it for the results you get, and therefore I would not recommend this product.
I bought this quite recently from a high street store, and it was on offer, so never to miss a bargain i had to get it. Well i bought two actually.
First off, i washed and dried my legs (where i applied the product) and then sprayed it on. Its a little bit like using spray foam, it is hard to get the product out of the packaging and i found myself shaking the bottle a lot to mix the product up. Once it came out, i spread it all over the area and waited, then remembered to actually check the instructions to see how long i was to wait, until i realised there were no instructions! So i estimated about 3-4 minutes and just kept checking and recovering the area. It was quite a nuiscance having to check all the time and i found it annoying that i couldnt get the product out very easily aswell, however, the result was fantastic! i was fuzz free in five minutes and the results lasted longer than shaving would, it has been roughly a week since i bought it, but i am not noticing any regrowth yet so definitely better than shaving!
All in all, great product, but could do with some instructions!
I hate shaving, no matter what part of my body I shave, and whatever razors, and cream I use I always end up with rashes and spots and an embarressing itch to scratch.
Being the mard arse that I am I wouldnt even consider waxing - I have had my eye-brows waxed a couple of times and I honestly cried. Years and years ago, I tried a hair removal cream which Im sure was Veet but with its previous name (which escapes me) but I really didnt like it as the smell of amonia was overpowering and the cream was thick and burned my skin both as it was working and for days afterwards. So, when I spotted this, a spray on hair removal cream that is also available for those with sensitive skin, I was keen to give it a try.
I tend to get mine from Superdrug when they have it on sale and typically pay between £4 - £6 but it lasts for ages so I dont mind paying full price if its not on offer.
There is a vast range to choose from but I always use the sensitive one, which is a sky blue colour. I dont think I have particuarly sensitive skin but my previous attempts at hair removal have left me emotionally scarred and so I prefer to edge on the side of caution and go with the sensitive products.
To apply, you literally spray on to your body and wait 5-10 minutes before scaping it off with a handy little plastic tool that scrapes of the cream and your unwanted hair. I was really surprised at how easy it is to use and how good the results are too. It honestly works a treat.
==Any spots or rashes?==
Nope! It leaves your skin feeling soft, silky smooth and moisturised. You would expect the smell to be strong too wouldnt you but it honestly isnt. You do need to have a good wash afterwards to make sure that all the cream has been removed and I would definetely recommend a shower rather than a bath as if you have got clumps of cream left behind you dont want to bathe it in do you and added to that when your skin touches hot water it does tingle somewhat especially in those extra-sensitive areas!
How long it lasts is dependent on your hair colour and individual growth but I get away with a couple of weeks however I always have my legs covered up so I would imagine that I shave less than most ladies.
Overall, Its a must in my bathroom and I would never go back to shaving...or ever consider waxing.
I brought this from the 99p store, the only problem was it didnt come with instruction! Also it was quite messy I got alot of it on my bathroom walls, however for the price it did a good job and removed wat it needed to. It was also quite difficult to squirt out and I had to guess how long to leave it on for.
i found this a good remover but the only problem i found was that spraying it out of the can was hard. i overall think this remover is worth the money. i got mine from the 99p store so the price was amazing too denfantly buy this item.
Reading other reviews on other websites, I was initially cautious. How this cream works, I have no idea. But believe me, it does work.
One of my male friends tried it on his chest hair, and left him with visible red marks. Having said that, he did admit to leaving it on past the allotted time, which is ten minutes, but that's men for you!
I purchased this product from Boots for around £6 and it came with a spatula to help remove the hairs. I bought the sensitive skin cream, as I have sensitive and dry skin. I didn't shave my legs for about a week and a half (sounds horrible) but I wanted to get the best out of the product. Making sure I didn't leave it on for too long I set a timer on my phone and dutifully started spraying. I would be very aware, however, that the spray is very slippy and be very careful when in the shower. It advises you to leave it on for five minutes, but no longer than ten minutes. After six minutes, I started 'scrapping' the hairs off my legs.
I must admit I was quite surprised at how great the product works! If you are short for time, a working mum who hasn't got a lot of time on her hands, or rushing to go out on a Friday night, this product is right for you. I would say the smell of the product isn't that strong, but wear extra perfume to cover it up if your concious. It leaves your legs feeling moisturised and smooth, you wouldn't get that from shaving would you? And as a plus, you don't have to go through the pain of having them waxed!
I decided to give this a go when i saw it on offer in boots. Id tried the cream and wasnt overly impressed i must admit,but decided to give this one a bash. In terms of ease of use, i felt this worked very well. You literally spray it onto the legs and wait a few minutes then take it off with the spatula. The smell when sprayed on was fine but as it stayed on for the duration it turned a nasty chemically type smell, which actually made my eyes water. Id only had it on for about a minute when it really started to sting and burn, it felt uncomfortable and itchy yet it hadnt been on even half of the time you are supposed to keep it on. When i finally came to wash it off, the skin on my legs was bright red and very itchy, id obviously had some reaction to it... so perhaps should have got the one for sensitive skin but how was i supposed to know? Despite the reaction my skin felt quite smooth but i did notice some hair left behind in patches. Overall not good for sensitive skin types, and didnt do a brilliant job at removing the hair. But did keep my legs smooth for a good few days... just be prepared to tidy up with a razor afterwards.
I bought this product before I went on holiday as I wanted long lasting smoother legs. i am pleased to say it did work up to a week hair free then had to top up a few days after so lasted a lot longer then shaving. The only problem i did have with it was it irritated my skin but when switching to the sensitive version i found it didn't work but the irritation wasn't bad just slightly uncomfortable but went after a day. i would advise if you have sensitive skin not to use this product as it is quite strong. it was easy to apply and remove and worked well on tough areas of hair removal such as the top of the legs but did have to leave on a little longer for those areas.
so overall i would recommend if you want a product that gives you smooth legs for a long time but i would not recommend if you have very sensitive skin as it will probably irritate.
I bought this Veet spray on hair removal cream a few months back because I had seen it advertised in my magazine and on TV, so I thought "Hey it must be good, it's being advertised like there's no tomorrow!". So I went to my local Boots store and purchased one.
Now I'm quite a girly girl , so when I saw a PINK colored hair removing product I was sold instantly...I knew that I was gonna buy it just because it was pink (stupid I know but I am young!).
You can purchase it from your local supermarket or drug store from £4.99 - £7.99 for a 150ml bottle. I think it was a little pricey because the bottle wasn't that big, but I thought it was expensive just because it was knew (like most products are when they first come out)
The cream comes in a thin, but sturdy, metal bottle and has a plastic spray nozzle for easy application. It is accompanied by a plastic spook like tool that allows easy removal of the cream. It is a sturdy bottle so no leakages!
The smell at first is a little overpowering. It is very perfumey, however you do get used to it after a while!
The application is quite easy. Just simply spray the cream all over your leg, then distribute evenly. Then leave on for 5-10 minutes to allow the cream to remove as much hair as possible. Then simply use warm water to rinse off the cream. I would suggest using a non perfumed moisturizer afterwards as it can make your legs feel very slippery!
The cream is a pale white color that is thick, allowing easy coverage.
I found that after removing the cream that it didn't quite remove all the hair on my legs as described on the bottle. I had to use a razor after, to get the stragglers! It left my legs feeling smooth and shiny, however they felt like they were really wet, even though they weren't, so I used a moisturizer which seemed to make them feel better!
Overall this is a relatively good product however using a razor would be quicker and more effective. The smell is horrible in my opinion and wayyyy too overpowering when first using. I gave it another go about 2 weeks later when my legs needed doing again - that is one pro , the hairs on your leg take longer to grow back! But sadly, still not impressed.
I wouldn't recommend this as it is pricey and doesn't do the job !
This review is under the same name on my CIAO! account xx
I have a fascination with hair removal creams. I only use it on my legs but I use it every time over shaving as it is quicker and easier and has longer lasting results. I usually use veet hair removal cream but had never used the spray on before so was fascinated to see what results it would bring. The normal cream can be a small bit messy to apply as you must do it with your hands so this appealed to me because you simply spray to the areas you wish to remove hair from. Brilliant idea in retrospect!!
Veet Hair Removal Cream Spray is a 150 ml can which comes with a removal 'shovel' type thing that you use to scrape off the cream. The can displays basic information such as ingredients used and what type of skin type it is for. I myself got the sensitive type but there is a normal skin version also. I paid Euro8.99 (£7) for the 150ml can which I found average enough as I would usually pay around the same for the packet of wax strips made by Veet also. I find that all hair removal products tend to be priced the same.
I applied mine in the shower as being a spray on version I knew it would go everywhere and get extremely messy. You are supposed to spray cream on areas where you want the hair to be removed (obviously enough) but this is actually quite difficult.....think whipped cream in a spray can.....it went absolutely everywhere. I was extremely glad I did it in the bath as my carpet and surrounding areas would have been destroyed. After leaving the cream on for five minutes (the info sheet tells you ten tops, so I was clung to my watch in fear of leaving it on too long) , you simply take it off with the removal trowel type thing and wash it down. It removed all trace of hair that had been covered with the cream. I towelled down my legs (I only did from my knee to my ankle as the tops of my legs don't have much hair).
My legs were left all smooth and soft as if I had layered them in moisturiser over night. It had removed all traces of hair from where I had applied it. The hair didn't grow back for over two weeks, which in comparison to shaving which begins to grow back after two days or so, is great. Overall the tube lasted me three go's on both my legs. This is quite little if I'm comparing to the regular hair removal cream or the wax strips, which both last a lot longer. It could actually have been the excess waste that went aaaall over the bath and places I really didnt want it too!!
This product is a great idea, but for actual use it is not so great. The spray on cream is a good idea as your hands don't get covered in the cream, which smells a bit, I must say. The disadvantages I found with the spray on is that it would go everywhere, so you should really do it over the bath or have towels around the carpet. It still does smell and although it doesnt get on your hands as much, it does get everywhere else. I would stick with my original hair removal cream in future, stinky hands or not!!!
I have been using this product for around 10 years now and for me its the best hair removal cream spray for my legs.
This product comes in a spray can and a plastic palette. A few years back it used to come with a small sponge instead of the palette.
There are different types of spray, one for normal skin and one for sensitive skin. I prefer to buy the one for sensitive skin but I've never had any problems with either sprays except that I do feel a little tingling after applying it.
The spray comes out as a white foam, which you need to cover the whole area you want the hair removed from. You need to leave the spray on for 5 minutes up to 10 minutes. Personally I find 5 minutes is a bit too short for all the hair to be removed so I leave it on for 8-10 minutes which is enough for all the hair to go.
Unfortunately the spray, as most hair removal products, doesn't have a very nice smell.
The spray works by weakening the hair until its so fragile it fall off when you scrape it off by the palette. Then you need to wash the area well, especially since it doesn't smell very good and I apply a lot of soap to take the smell off. When you're ready, this product leaves your skin quite soft.
Since I've been using this product for quite a number of years, I've noticed that it helps to reduce hair growth. This product is quick and easy to use although it can be a bit messy. You really need to bear the smell though because it is quite unpleasant.
I always shave my legs as the idea of hairy legs really does disgust me quite a bit. I have never used wax and hair removal cream is always the option for me. I have always used rub-on creams but I have always found them very difficult to apply as I have been pressured for time and I'm always scared of leaving it on too long and it ends up burning my skin (which I have done several times). I hate the idea of using razors as I have cut my legs so many times and sometimes the bleeds have bee quite serious.
I really liked the spray-on feature, and you can simply spray it on and give it a quick rub. At first it is quite difficult to come to grips with handling the new spray feature, but after a while it is the best part about the cream. It can come as quite a shock when spraying it on, and it is very cold in a metal container and spraying it directly on to the legs causes a little bit of a shock to your system but you do get used to it. It sprays it in quite large quantities so it's not a case of you don't have to sue your hands at all - you will still need to spread it about. The spray is a lot more foamy than usual and in my opinion isn't as thick. I found it a lot easier to get the back of my legs with this spray as you could simply spray it in a straight line going downwards and then rub it from the sides.
One major let down to the spray was the smell. It is very overpowering and it just hits you the second you spray the cream on. It was a really disgusting smell and at one point I had to cover my nose whilst doing so and even spray myself with perfume just to get rid of the awful odour.
I left it on for roughly 5-7 minutes and used the spatula they prove you with to take it off. I gave it a try with the spatula, but I don't think it is actually sharp enough to get all the hairs off completely. For that reason, I tried using a blunt kitchen knife (not smart I know) and tried to take it off that way and it ended up doing a much better job than the rubbish little thing they gave you for free.
Afterwards, I gave myself a shower and I was incredibly impressed with the results. The best part was coming out of the bath with my legs still wet and giving my brand new smooth legs a good feel. It felt wonderful. Afterwards I moisturised them and I enjoyed my completely hair-free soft, smooth and shiny legs.
It can work out quote expensive as £6 for a 150ml can. However, you can easily get 5 or 6 applications out of one can so I do think it is quite economical and that it's worth the money. I tend to do it once a week, so effectively a can lasts me 6 weeks, which is £1 a week so how can I really complain with that?
The stuff works great and it is a new handy alternative to the traditional old cream and painful razoring and waxing.
