Veet Hair Removal Cream Review


 

How do you get rid of unwanted hair? Back then we use to pluck it using the good old tweezers however, this method is quite painful and leaves a "chicken skin" texture under your arms and sometimes it may develop some ingrown hair. Afterwards, I learned the easier way of shaving with my grandfather's razor hee hee! It was painless, quick and no "chicken skin" after effect, needs a religious application of moisturizer every night to prevent darkening. Then, there is hot and cold wax, both I haven't tried yet and I don't think I will, next came threading, which is also a no no, I can never imagine how painful it is, pulling multiple strands of hair in one snap, ouchy!
After giving birth, I had been very much into child rearing and my beauty regimens almost gone until I noticed that my underarm started getting darker and I don't like seeing it that way. I then tried to look for some whitening creams until I stumble on Veet products, I actually heard about it, but didn't consider of trying one since it costs quite high compared to a pair of razor. I decide to give it a try. It was a Veet Hair Removal Cream for sensitive skin with aloe vera and vitamin E, I bought it in Manila and I'm not sure if how much it costs, about 75 to 80 pesos for 100g if I remember it right.
The box says it works in 5 minutes. However, it was noted that "the time the cream takes to work depends on the hair thickness", but it should not exceed more than 10 minutes. It was designed for legs, underarm and bikini line and can be used anywhere, but not on mole area, face specially on eyes, broken or sunburned skin.
It was easy to use, just apply it directly on skin, evenly spreading it to cover the hair and leave it for 5 minutes. Gently use the pink spatula (supplied inside the pack) to test on small are, if the hair comes away easily remove the rest. If not leave it longer, but not longer than 10 minutes. Rinse your skin with water after. I suggest do the procedure on night before taking your shower since the cream smells sulfure-like and applied some moisturizer for a smoother skin.
I used it trice already and Didi already notice that my underarms is getting lighter and smoother yo! Though the hair grows back easily again after few days, but unlike shaving it was softer.
I will definitely continue on using this product.

Sometimes regrowth takes place even after laser hair removal, which indicates laser hair removal is not 100% permanent.

Uhhhm~hey do you think it really grows more smoother than razors? Did it leave the hair spikey or something like spikes in your hands when you touch it?

I like this laser procedure with less time my unwanted hairs will vanished. I'm also interested in any other hair removal with the use also of laser technology. This blog might also help visit this site for the great results.

Hi Kathy!,
It was a very nice review about veet hair removal cream. I would like to ask is its effects are permanent or shall we use it periodically? Thanks for sharing your ideas, it was a good read.

Kasai on April 27, 2013 at 8:48 AM said...

@ kimberly ycong >>> I think if that happen leave it fist then repeat it after several hours. Your skin might get irritated if you prolong the application or if repeat the application with only few minutes interval :)

I am not medical professional, just base on my experience :)

Kasai on April 27, 2013 at 10:38 AM said...

@ Arianne Fabular >>> I'm not sure if a 13 year old can use this, for me not yet her skin might be too young.

@ Salima >>> This cream is should be use periodically since its not a permanent hair remover.

cheers to all! thanks for stopping by, sorry if it takes time for me to answer.

This laser technology can also beautify your skin in many other ways. Laser tattoo removal may take more than one treatment but after completing the sessions, your skin will look more beautiful & glorious.

Kasai on May 10, 2013 at 9:22 AM said...

I am not shaving my legs, haven't tried it on other part except armpits :)

but if you ask me I think its okay since skin on armpits are more sensitive than legs :) plus its better than shaving

I used veet color green for dry skin.. then I used it on my underarm..bt not all hair removed..there's some little hair remain..and its really painful when I apply the cream..I dont know y..maybe my skin is sensitive?

Ann Meryl on June 18, 2013 at 7:48 PM said...

does it also whiten the underarms?

Kasai on July 20, 2013 at 4:38 PM said...

Hi Camille,

don't let it sit too long, less than 10 mins only as it the product instruction say.... few hair still remain repeat it again the next night (I usually do these grooming things before bedtime. I usually lather rich dose of some nice moisturizer or body oil after (since I do it at night). Oh maybe you really got a sensitive skin don't worry I'm in a hunt for some new product/method of getting rid this hair elsewhere hee hee... I promise to post it once I got one...

Kasai on July 20, 2013 at 4:43 PM said...

Hi Anne Meryl,

No dear its purpose is not to whiten but only a prevent the further more darkening effect of traditional shaving & plucking...

for me I use some oil and moisturizers (facial) on my skin folds (armpits & bikini area at night specially after removing the hair to whiten it.
