Veet EasyWax

I was recently sent the Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-on Kit to try by the lovely people at Veet.

Now, it’s fair to say that I have not been looking forward to testing this product.  I have only ever been brave enough to have my eyebrows waxed in a Beauty Salon and I winced when that was done.  So I have been putting this trial off.

But tonight was the night to face my fear.  We have a Christening to go to tomorrow, the weather is actually improving and my legs will be on full show.  So I took a deep breath and decided to be brave.

The instructions with the kit tell you to insert the wax cartridge into the unit and heat for 20 minutes.  The cartridge clicks in really easily and then you roll a small area of your leg with wax, if the wax runs smoothly you are ready to begin.  Well it didn’t, so I checked the instructions and it said to heat for an additional 5 minutes and test again.  So I built myself up for it again, and again the wax wasn’t ready.  In the end I heated it for another 5 minutes and that did the trick.

So I rolled the wax down my leg, it goes on really evenly when it’s warm enough, put a strip over the wax, leaving a bit at the end free of wax to hold onto.  I rubbed over the strip downwards, took a deep breath, held the skin at the bottom of the strip, tight, and pulled the strip back quickly.  Do you know what?? It didn’t hurt at all!  I was in shock.

Thinking that was beginners luck, I repeated the process again and again and I can confirm that I am now in love with this product.

I have waxed both of my legs, it was easy, left no mess, and DIDN’T HURT 🙂

I know feel slightly less nervous about trying the Bikini and Underarm cartridge, but will save that for another day.

I am really impressed, as will my friends be in me, as they know what a wimp I am!

disclaimer: I was sent this product for the purpose of review, my comments, however, remain my own honest thoughts

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
