Due to my busy work schedule, I am always on the lookout for products which would save my time. So here is a review on one such product from Veet.
Rs. 80 for 8 strips
The box contains 8 (4 double sided) wax strips, 2 perfect finish wipes & a leaflet.
These wax strips are easy to use if you follow the steps properly. Please do not hurry. The pack contains 8 (4 double sided) wax strips and also 2 perfect finish wipes. I will not mention the procedure in detail as the instruction picture is given above for better understanding.
I picked up the ‘Sensitive skin’ variant as I have very sensitive skin and the other variants are comparatively more painful than that of the ‘Sensitive skin’ variant.
I like the fact that these strips are ready to use and does not need heating up. Just warm it up with your hands, peel off the strips and apply immediately on a clean and dry area which is to be waxed. It is very important to hold the area tightly when you pull out the strip to avoid pain and also remember to pull the strip opposite to the direction of your hair growth.
This product works well if you have thin and light hair. You have to keep on using the strip till it loses its grip in removing hair; then you can use a new one. If you have coarse hair (which is a result of shaving) then you will need more strips. I don’t prefer shaving as a hair removal method as the hair grows faster and it is a very short term solution. These wax strips keep my skin smooth and hair free for around a fortnight and then the hair re-grows a bit finer. These wax strips have a nice and mild fragrance.
The best option is going to the parlour as the waxing procedure is less painful and you get better services. Veet wax strips is like an emergency option just in case you are unable to go out. But if you compare the time and money spent in the parlour, using Veet wax strips is a better option.
The strips can be cut into sizes according to your preference while using them on the underarm area. But I wouldn’t recommend using them on underarms as the area is sensitive and it may bleed.
Some of you may find the entire process time consuming and messy. But once you get the hang of it, you will find it easier to use.
After waxing, you have to use the Perfect finish wipes to clean out the wax form the skin. But I am a bit disappointed with these wipes as they are too greasy and do not remove the sticky wax residue completely. A little word of caution here, after waxing, do not use any other body lotion or moisturizer as it might irritate the skin.
Overall, I am satisfied with this product and recommend it to everyone! I feel these strips work better on shorter hair (2mm-5mm long). The longer the hair, more the pain.
- Easy to use
- Effective even on short hair
- Easily available
- Available in 3 variants for normal, dry and sensitive skin
- Nice fragrance
- With regular use hair re-grows fewer, finer & softer

- As for me, one strip (both sides) is enough to remove hair of one leg or one hand.
- Wish there were more strips in the pack
- I don’t like it when the wax sticks to my hands
- Process might be time consuming and messy for first time users
- The perfect finish wipes do not remove the wax residue completely
- Does not remove hair completely from the underarm area.
