Veet Ready to Use Wax Strips Full Body Waxing Kit for Sensitive Skin Review

Hello Lovelies!!!

Veet ready to use wax strips come in three variants: for normal skin with Shea butter and berries, for dry skin with aloe vera and lotus flower fragrance, and for sensitive skin with almond oil and Vitamin E. Out of these three variants I have already reviewed Veet ready to use wax strips for dry skin (Click Here to read complete review) and in this post I am going to review strips for sensitive skin.

Product claims: Veet Ready-to-Use Wax Strips are effective at pulling out even 1.5mm short hair, leaving you free to get up to 4 week long lasting smoothness and instantly exfoliated skin, whenever you want. And they’re easy to use, any time: The ready-to-use pack gives you perfect waxing results in just 5 easy steps and the special Easy Grip™ tab helps you uproot hair in one easy move. And, with regular use, you’ll get fewer, finer and softer hairs growing back. Specially formulated with Almond Oil and Vitamin E, Veet provides extra care to suit Sensitive Skin.

Available in 3 variants –

For Normal Skin with Shea Butter and berries.
For Dry Skin with Aloe Vera and Lotus Flower Fragrance.
For Sensitive Skin with Almond Oil and Vitamin E.

Wipes: Paraffinum Liquidum, Hexyldecyl Stearate, Parfum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Peel Oil, Limonene, Cedrus Atlantica Bark il, Pelargonium, Graveolens Flower Oil.

Price: 170 Rs

Quantity: 20 strips

Shelf life: 24 months or 2 years

Online availability: Amazon, Bigbasket, Snapdeal and Flipkart.

Kit contains: The kit or box contains 20 (10*2) reusable strips, 5 perfect finish wipes & a leaflet.

Direction of use:

* Take out a double wax strip and rub it between your hands to make the strips easy to separate.
* Carefully peel the strips apart using the rounded Easy Grip tabs.
* With the Easy strip at the bottom, apply one strip to your skin. Rub several times in the direction     your hair grows to make sure the wax adheres well.
* Hold your skin taut. Grasp the tab, and pull the strip back on itself as quickly as you can, against the direction the hair grows. Pull the strip back in one swift motion, close to the skin rather than away from it.
* After waxing, clean away any wax left on your skin with a Perfect Finish wipe. 

Packaging: This complete waxing kit comprises of a carton which is pink and purple in color. Color combination of the box is very beautiful and vibrant. Inside the carton one can find 20 wax strips (10*2). These are transparent in color but look yellowish due to the wax. A leaflet is also there which includes all the information related to the product. It also consist five perfect finish wipes that have to be used after waxing to get rid of the extra wax from your body.

My opinion about the product: In every set, there are two strips stuck to one another which can be separated easily. Firstly you need to rub the strips with your hands to warm them. Now separate the strips and apply on the desired area. Now pull off the strips in one jerk otherwise this could turn messy. The strips can be cut into different sizes according to your preference.

Once waxing is complete, you have to use the perfect finish wipes to clean out the extra wax from the skin. But I was bit disappointed with these wipes as they are too greasy and do not remove the sticky wax residue completely.

I also faced problem while using these wax strips was on my underarms. Even after following all the instructions, when I use it on my underarms, it causes bleeding so I would say “It is better not to use these wax strips on your underarms”.

I use Aloe vera gel to reduce burning sensation post waxing. Overall these strips are quite effective; they pulls out hair from the root which in turn gives and hair free skin. I find this kit very economical too in comparison to salon’s waxing charges. Best thing is you can carry them in your bag & can use whenever required without the help of anyone.

What I like about this product….

1. Pulls out hair from roots.
2. Has a nice fragrance.
3. With regular use hair re-grows fewer, finer & softer.
4. One strip (both sides) is enough to remove hair of one leg or one hand.
5. Budget friendly.
6. Easily available in local as well as online market.
7. Travel friendly packaging.

What I do not like about this product…..
1. Not suitable to use on underarms.
2. The perfect finish wipes do not remove the wax residue completely
3. Whole process can be bit messy & requires patience.

  3. Honest review , I have used HipHop wax strips and they were not too effective in removing hair , seems these are Over Hyped products .

  4. I agree. These wax stripes are quite messy and leave residues. Nice review!

    1. Glad that this review helped you in taking decision..

  6. I love these strips. Though the cons you mentioned can't really be ignored :/

  7. I used to love using this. Now it's been replaced by Nair hair removal spray.

  8. Never tried this ... may be I should :-) vaise to be honest... I dread using these... :-p

  9. Good review. Somehow I never had the patience to do this. Maybe I should give this another try.

  10. Sadly it never worked for me due to my barely-there hairs!!! :P ;)

  14. always been skeptical about these, prefer my handy epilator . thanks for review

  15. Nice review... I use epilator as waxing is very much painful for me...

  16. Good review. Veet is handy.. :)

  17. Right timing. Just yesterday I used this. I had no Idea that it is available in three variants. Unfortunately only variant available here is for the normal skin and I end up getting rashes after using it.
    Quite honest detailed and up to the point reviews

    1. Oh! It's sad that you got rashes after using it..

  18. Good review.. I have also used the Veet strips and agree that its a bit messy.. I also feel that one strip only works one time, so I ended up using a whole packet for arms!!!

    1. Thanks Sneh.. I know using these strips is not so easy as they sound..

  19. Honest review. Will stay away from it.

  20. I've always eyed this product for my underarms but I am too worried about causing scarring adn bleeding. thanks for the review, i will stay away from it :)

    1. Ah! Using wax strips sometimes become horrible ;)
