Veet Spray On Hair Removal Cream
Advantages: Smooth legs due to aloe vera and vitimin e
Disadvantages: Does not remove all of the hairs in stated time
I have tried a number of different hair removal products over the years, however my usual method of removing unwanted hair is to use a razor.
I recently decided to try something different as I felt razors were drying out my skin and causing unsightly red marks.
Upon browsing the shelves at Boots, I came accross Veet Spray. The packaging attracted me, as the product comes in an appealing pink colour. Veet Spray costs £6.99 at Boots for 150ml, however you can sometimes buy it a little cheaper at places like Wilkinsons.
Veet Spray contains key ingredients such as jasmin, vitimin e and aloe vera, which I felt would be good for my skin. The actual product is of a gel -like consistency. This is different from hair removing creams and a bit less messy. One of the advantages of having a spray product is that you can target it to the areas you like, without the mess left by cream based products. I also found that the spray can helped me to cover my legs with the gel evenly so that the product was well distributed.
The instructions for the use of this product are simple to follow and can be found clearly stated on the back of the can. In following these, I sprayed gel evenly over my legs, holding the can an inch away from my skin. The instructions advise that you leave the spray on for 3 minuites. I generally found the product easy to apply.
The can also comes with a plastic pink spatula. This is essential in order to effectively remove the gel and unwanted hair after the allocated time has passed.
**How effective was the product?**
On the plus side, the product was easy to apply and easy to use. However, I was disappointed with the results. After 3 minuites I removed the product with the spatula, and found that although some of my hair had been removed, not all of it had. There were still odd patches of hair on my legs. This meant that I had to shave these parts off.
I was impressed with the smoothness of my legs, which resulted from the aloe vera and vitimin e products found in the gel. If only it had removed all of the hair!
I did use this product again, except this time I left it on for longer - approximately 5 minuites as opposed to the recommended 3. This seemed to work better, however I noticed that my legs began to sting a little.
Overall, I would say that I would not buy this product again. For me there is little point in buying a can of gel which only partially removes hair, when Icould use a razor to remove my hairs in half the time, and more effectively. If it had removed the hair properly as I was led to believe, then I would have bought it again. I advise you to stick to other types of hair removing products.
Summary: Nice product, but not completely effective
