Veet EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips with Aloe Vera

I've waxed my legs once, many years ago, but I wasn't a fan and have just stuck to shaving since then. The wax I used years ago was once that you had to heat up, and I just found that to be a major inconvenience (I'm not going to wax my legs in the kitchen beside my microwave). I recently decided to try out Veet's EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips*, and this is a wax that I can see myself actually using again and again!

"Because the Veet® Ready-to-Use Wax Strips leave you silky smooth for longer, you'll have more free time in-between waxes. It couldn't be simpler!

A few seconds is all it takes to warm a wax strip between your hands, apply and remove. Each one has been carefully chosen to leave you feeling pampered and ready for anything.

So now, you can always feel silky smooth and radiant. Just wax and go!" - Veet


Veet's EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips come in a box of 10 double sided wax strips, so you get 20 strips in total. To use, take one of the strips, and heat it up between your palms for a few seconds. Then, apply the strip in the direction of your hair growth, and press down the strip. Next, take a deep breath and pull back the strip in one swift motion. Veet included and handy tab at the end of this strip which makes this process super easy! I was surprised by how little this hurt, and how effective it is! Of course, this isn't pain free, but it only stung for a few seconds, and then it was fine. My one complaint was that I was only able to use each strip once, so you will go through the box quite quickly. If you were to do both legs (thighs and calves), you would need all 20 strips. Make sure to only go over each area once, as you don't want to irritate your skin. With this wax, all my hairs came out on the first try, and very little wax residue was left on my legs. There are 4 Perfect Finish Wipes included in this box, which are to be used after waxing to remove any leftover wax. My legs were left feeling very smooth, soft, and hair-free. This particular formula is made with aloe vera and it is targeted towards dry skin. There are also strips for sensitive skin and the Suprem'Essence formula which has a rose scent. 


If you're like me, and fairly lazy when it comes to hair removal, waxing might be the perfect option for you. Hair takes longer to grow in after waxing, compared to shaving. I love not having to shave everyday, and actually being hair free for 2-3 weeks! What's your preferred method of hair removal? Have you tried Veet's EasyGrip Ready-to-Use Wax Strips with Aloe Vera before?

  2. I have much dislike for ready-to-use wax strips. But I'm also used to using a wax pot and strips. Speaking of which... I need to wax my legs.... -.-

    I do, LOL!!!
    I get my legs waxed, but in the summer I wax my lower leg in between sessions because my leg hairs are dark.
    I've never been a fan of wax strips though, they don't work well for me.

      I'm wanting to try out a potted wax, but these are just so much easier for beginners!

  5. This sounds nice, but I have a feeling I could shave my legs faster than waxing. Although, do you find your hair grows back slower using these?

    1. Shaving is definitely faster, but waxing lasts a lot longer! Waxing can last 3 weeks for me, whereas shaving lasts a day or two!

  6. I like the Veet Easywax. It's just as easy and you can get more use out of it.

  7. I am the laziest hair remover ever -- I bully my aesthetician sister-in-law into doing my waxing for me, gratis. If she ever stops, though, I will need to look into something like this -- going to the salon/spa is pricey!

    1. I'm so jealous! I wish I had someone in the family to wax my legs!
