The less glamorous side of being female definitely includes hair removal. Shaving, waxing. plucking, threading and lasering are all things that come with the territory. Luckily it needn’t be as dreadful as those ads on the TV that send shivers down your spine when the woman nicks herself with a razor. It also doesn’t need to involve the frustration of your beautician being fully booked for three weekends in a row.
I’ve been using Veet since my school days purely because it is a brand that knows time is an issue for busy women and we all prefer painless, quick and easy hair removal. Veet has an incredibly wide range of products which is just perfect considering we all have different needs. Personally, the wax strips with easy grip as well as the hair removal cream for sensitive skin have made my life so much easier. The fact that Veet now cater for different skin types such as dry or sensitive skin also puts them at an advantage over other brands because they really do care about your skin. I’ll be the first to admit that while running out of time before my Contiki tour, I used another brand’s wax strips and I had such an awful reaction to it that it left me looking like I had chicken pox throughout my entire tour. How embarrassing. Had I stuck with my tried and tested Veet products, though, I would have been silky smooth and could have worried more about the sights than my skin that holiday.
I now stock up a couple boxes of my favourite Veet products, so that I can quickly and easily take care of my hair removal right before a shower and heading to bed. There is absolutely no reason to be the girl that wears jeans on the hottest summer’s day any more. It’s quick and effortless, cost effective and if it’s good enough for Miss South Africa, it’s good enough for me!
