Product: Veet Ready To Use Wax Strips for Face and Bikini
What they say:
… Veet Facial and Bikini Wax Strips are designed to reach the delicate, smaller areas, targeting those hard-to-reach areas of your face as well as touch-ups around the body. Just smooth a strip onto your skin, remove with one swift movement and sweep over a Perfect Finish Wipe to remove any traces of wax residue. You’ll come away with skin that’s silky smooth for up to four weeks.
Our strips are designed for hair as short as 2mm, so you never have to wait for your hair to get “long enough” to wax. Just wax and go!
In the box: 20 wax strips, 4 Perfect Finish wipes, and an instruction leaflet. That’s six “face” and four “bikini” sheets (but, once you pull them apart, you have two strips per sheet.) The bikini ones are larger, about double the width of the face strips, but both can be trimmed before you pull them apart if needed!Why they’re great: Compared to traditional wax, these are incredibly easy to use. It literally takes under five minutes to wax away 90% of your pesky upper lip hair (I just get the rest with tweezers.) And trust me – as a beauty blogger, this is a necessity. It might not be visible to the normal eye, but once that macro function is on, you better not have any peach fuzz up there! Though not flawless, these strips are so convenient that it’s worth it.
Unfortunately, these are also much more expensive and wasteful than normal (pot) wax, and as I said, don’t get everything. But taking time and effort into consideration, plus the fact that going into a salon to get waxed costs about $20, just for brows? Definitely worth it. Assuming you use this kit four times, that’s a difference of about $7 to $80!!

Other stuff: The strips come with “Perfect Finish” wipes – basically, stiff wipes that get the wax off your skin. They’re a bit harsh, but they smell alright and the oil comes off with a quick cleansing. And here’s the left-field piece of information of the day: the bikini strips, once trimmed, are great for waxing your jawline/sideburns. Dark-haired girls… you know what I’m taking about! It’s just peach fuzz, and not noticable, but once once side has fuzz and one doesn’t, you really seee the difference. Jaw definition and a brighter complexion, here I come!The verdict? I love these. I’d like to try different companies, but the supermarket that I pick them up at is always out of everything else. (We tend to do our shopping quite late in the day… as in, eight o’clock at night kind of late.) These are great, even for beginners. And yes, the waxing does sting for a minute or two, but it is so worth it!
