Wax Vs Hair Removal Cream With Veet

I posted a poll in a beauty group on Facebook on how women deal with unwanted hair on their legs. The results didn't surprise me in all honestly as I fall in to the top voted one myself. Here are the results.

Shave - 30 
Wax -2
Cream - 1
Epilate -2
Laser -1

I've always shaved as its pain free, non messy and quick to do. The only problem is it doesn't last long at all, within a day or too you get that annoying prickly stubble back. So when Veet got in touch with me for a review, I was keen to see how wax and cream compare to shaving. They sent me some products from their new Natural Inspirations range.  Here is Veet's guide to Hair Removal .

Veet Natural Inspirations Hair Removal Cream 

I did a sample test 24 hours before just to make sure it wasn't going to bring me out in a rash.

The cream was super easy to apply you use the smaller side of the spatula outside end to smooth the cream out, the box says leave for 5/10 minutes. I have thick hair so I decided to leave on for the full 10.  The smell reminds me when you walk in to a hairdressers and someone is having a perm. I think the smell has improved as when I use it before it smelt awful. After 10 minutes you scrap down using the bigger side of the spatula and the hair should come off easy as well. I was surprised how good the hairs came out it only left one stubborn one.  My skin feels really smooth after and there was no irritation.

Veet Natural Inspirations EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit 

The wax kit was really easy to set up, you pop the wax inside the roller. Plug the charger in and sit it in the stand. Wait 20/30 minutes for it to heat up. To test if the wax is not enough roll on to a piece of paper if it rolls out evenly it's ready. Roll on the wax in the direction the hair grows. Pop a waxing strip on the wax, hold your skin as taut as you can and pull as quick as you can. I really didn't like the wax, apart from being super painful. It didn't seem to leave a smoothness like the cream. Plus it left bits of wax that I had to re go over with a waxing strip. You only just 12 wax strips so if you wanted to do both your legs you would have to purchase more, as I used two just on the one part of my leg.
