Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll On Kit
Today we are talking about hair removal, yes, it's a process that most of us have to do (or want to do, depending on your views) but it is a bit of a controversial and personal topic; however I feel as though my little corner of the internet is a free space where we can all talk about anything from lipstick, how much we love autumn, outfits and of course waxing...

Veet is a brand I have grown up using, I love their mini wax strips which I have used for my brows for years and I have ventured into the scary world of waxing with their larger strips for the legs but I do always wimp out after the '1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7....' but my sister is far less of a wimp when it comes to waxing pain. The Veet large wax strips are actually really quite effective. 

So myself and my guinea pig...I mean my sister, tested out the *Veet Easy Wax Natural Inspirations Electrical Roll On Kit (£29.99) which is suitable for all skin types and 90% of the wax ingredients are from natural origins. The kit comes with the self heating device and cap, the base/stand, one 50ml roll on wax refill, 12 non-woven strips, four finishing wipes, instructions and the electric cable as this device is mains operated. 

The first thing you have to do is insert the wax roll on refill into the heating device, plug it in and wait for 20 minutes for wax to heat up to the ideal temperature. In this time it would be best to wash, exfoliate and dry the area you are going to wax as it will definitely help. When the wax is heated, roll it onto the areas in the direction the hair grows; apply one non-woven strip to the skin and rub the strip in the direction of hair growth so it can adhere. Then you know the drill, hold the skin taut, deep breaths then pull the strip back on itself close to the skin. Even though there are only 12 strips in the kit, you can use them multiple times in the same waxing session (we used each strip three times). Clean excess wax away with the wipes - when I use wax I always use warm water to clean the skin afterwards and then pat dry. 

Testing the warm wax on paper first really helped to see if the wax would spread evenly. The wax stayed warm, it never felt too hot and it did spread fairly evenly on the skin. The first couple attempts on a small area didn't really remove any hairs, the third attempt did remove a small patch though. I think the device doesn't spread a thick enough layer onto the skin. The results were not amazing to  sadly as it is a fantastic concept as there is pretty much zero mess and it is easy and quick to use. 

Overall, it is a great concept and it was quick and easy to use but the results for us at least were not as amazing as I hoped. I will definitely continue to use Veet waxing products as I love the mini wax strips but this device is a miss for us - it would probably work so much better for those with finer hair and it you have more experience of using warm wax and products like this. Overall rating: ★★☆☆☆, 2.5/5. 


Have you tried this kit, if so what are your opinions? Have you tried any Veet products?

  4. It is definitely a miss for me too. It wasn't good enough and it was kinda messy. Also waxing with this one took so much time. I have it in the drawer somewhere, it was just waste of money. I will stick to epilator and hot wax, it is quicker this way.

  5. This looks like such an interesting product! I haven't seen it in my drugstores yet but not sure if it would work for me. I'm interested to see if it would work on my legs!

    1. It's definitely less messy and a little less painful than cold wax strips x

  9. What a pity the results from this weren't great. I do think it is a fab idea rather than having to faf with wooden sticks and hot wax. I am a total wimp when it comes to waxing too! :) x

  10. Aw it's a shame you didn't get on with this as I really liked it (though I did apply like 2-3 layers so maybe that's why!) xx
