Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit Review



Hi Girls. I'm excited to tell you that as of today, I can wax my own legs, at home. Woo Hoo! O.K. so it's not exactly splitting the atom or anything, but believe me, I've tried regular wax you heat in the microwave, wax that sets hard and is used without strips, a cool gel kind of wax that you don't heat, and prewaxed strips. It was all a Fail, Fail, Fail Fail! I was left with a lot of pain, and patches of hair either not removed, or just broken off. So, when a PR asked me to try a new Veet hair removal system I said, these things haven't worked for me before, if it doesn't work, I'm not going to blog about it. Long story short, it worked, I have lovely smooth legs, and a sense of elation that hey, I really can do a great waxing job at home.

What's Included in the Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit
Here's what makes it great..

  • You're not stuck sitting on the kitchen floor needing regular access to your microwave to re-heat the wax.
  • The temp is automatically set to prefect so heating is a no brainer.
  • Wax is applied at the right thickness to properly remove the hair.
  • Application is easy, like a roll on deodorant. Then you just cover with a cloth strip, rub with the growth, then remove the strip directly back towards you.
  • The coral colour makes it easy to see where you've applied the wax.
  • A little goes a long way. For both lower legs I needed less than a quarter of a wax refill. 
  • I only needed 2 cloth strips per (half) leg. 12 strips are included.
  • It's Quicker. No time spent reheating or scraping a spatula on the edge of a container.
  • Much less mess, no sticky stringy wax between a spatula and the pot, and all over the floor.
  • No salon fees or travelling. It's done in the privacy of your own home.

Wax refill, what's left after two lower legs
Any cons?

  • It does cool down if not plugged in.  I used an extension cord to keep it plugged in at the right heat. Then there's no need to rush.
  • The Veet Perfect Finish Wipes weren't that effective at removing residual wax on my legs. I found this was done easily with some olive oil from my pantry, and a cotton ball.
  • The initial outlay is more than regular home waxes, however ongoing costs are minimal.

Tips

  • I find the roller runs smoothly if it's tilted a little back towards me rather than straight up.
  • When re-using your strip, keep using the same sticky side. Don't turn it over or you'll end up with very sticky hands. Yep I know, because I did it.
  • Use olive oil on a cotton ball to remove residual wax, then rub the oil left on your legs into your skin. Your legs will be soothed, and silky smooth.
  • Smaller refills are available for the under arm and bikini line areas.

  2. I've never done heated waxing before at home, it actually sounds like this might be something I could handle. Thanks for the review! I think I may try it :)

  5. I won one of these a while ago, but I'm too scared by pain to try it! haha. I ended up giving it away. I get my legs waxed now and then in salons, I'm such a big baby over it and my skin is so sensitive it really doesn't like it. I get better results with a home epilator - although painful, less irritation as there's no product causing the pain, haha!

    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog :)

  7. I am so wussy when it comes to waxing. I can do my arms myself at home but my leg hair is just too coarse and crazy D: I might have to give this a try, for my arms at least :D

  8. Hi Susannah,

    Thanks for sharing this - and much cheaper than going to the Spa.
    They must have come a long way since having to heat it up in a pot - tried this once and was really messy.
