Review of Veet EasyGrip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips

Veet EasyGrip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips
When I was asked if I wanted to trial some Veet wax products, I jumped right on board! As summer is fast approaching, I'm busy trying to get my skin summer ready and being body hair-free is a MUST. Waxing is definitely my preferred method of hair removal. I have used Veet before and have had great results (at the moment I'm using hard wax from Salon brand Lycon). I received the EasyGrip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips. 

What the box contained

The box contained 20 wax strips, 4 finishing wipes and the instructional pamphlet. Personally I prefer using hard wax because I find it easier and more suitable for my sensitive skin (also the warm wax feels nicer on the skin) but it can be a hassle to heat up the wax pot, wait for it to reach the right temperature and sometimes it's just messy.

A definite positive of the wax strips is that it's a lot less messier to use. No mechanical heating also means you can use the wax almost straight away. The EasyGrip Tabs are great because you get a better grip of the strip (rhyme!) which means you remove hair more efficiently. I have sensitive skin and no matter what waxing product I use my skin gets inflamed and dotty after I wax. Using this, I was left with the little red dots but they disappeared after a few hours. The wax does contain Vitamin E & Almond Oil which helps soothe the skin.

Everyone's pain threshold differs so I can't give a fair indication of how painful this was. There is a discomfort, but if you wax correctly (Pull the strip back quickly, don't pull up) you barely feel it. I found that the formula of the wax strips did not adhere to the skin, it only gripped the hairs which means you won't get painful skin ripping.

How To Apply
  1. After warming the wax by rubbing the strips in between your palms, slowly pull the strips apart. 
  2. Place the strip (easy grip tab at the bottom) on your skin and rub the strip in the direction of hair growth. 
  3. Holding the EasyGrip tab, pull the strip back quickly. When pulling the strip keep your skin taut.

    The box contains hair removal instructions and also a pamphlet on how to use the wax strips.

Overall
I loved using this product (as much as anyone can love ripping body hairs out). It was so easy to use and including the EasyGrip tabs was genius! Would I recommend this? Yes, I would recommend this to anyone who's thinking about waxing. You don't need to be a pro (clear instructions are provided on the box, pamphlet and on the wax strips) and there is virtually no prep time with the wax strips. No heating also makes this perfect for travelling.

My Tips

  • I prefer to wax after a hot shower. The pores are opened which I find makes it easier to remove hair. Just make sure to towel dry and not apply any creams.
  • Exfoliate (Just not within 48 hours of waxing). Exfoliating not only keeps your skin silky smooth, it also keeps ingrown hairs at bay.
