I was totally ecstatic to be one of a few chosen to be a Veet Ambassador. I applied through their facebook page and was one of 100 picked to be part of it. With the program I was given a Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit to try out and share my thoughts on. Plus if you keep reading you’ll see at the bottom of this post a way you can get $10 off this kit from well.ca!
The kit comes with what you see above. a self heating applicator that has a cap, roll-on wax refill, 12 non woven strips, 4 finishing wipes(like baby oil wipes) and a base to hold the applicator upright while heating.
I have been using Veet facial wax(not the heated kind, the rub and use kind) for many years and very much trust their effectiveness. So I was so excited to try out their EasyWax roll-on kit. I’ve never waxed my legs, so I didn’t know if I was doing it totally correctly but I tried it and I think I did it right.
In the video below you will see it was taken 3 days apart. After the first day I tested out a area and realized my leg hair might not be long enough to be grabbed by the wax, so I decided to wait 3 days. That many days might not have been needed but I wanted to give it a decent time to grow more. The instructions say to let it heat up for 20 minutes and see if the wax will come out smoothly. If it doesn’t you need to heat it up 5 more minutes until it rolls smoothly. For me it took 35 minutes.
After the wax was warmed up to the perfect temperature I was able to test it out. The applicator has an angled edge that you are to place on your leg to ensure the proper amount of wax goes on your leg. When waxing you always follow the growth of your hair. From the knee to the ankle. You then place the non woven strip down on the wax and push it downwards as well. Then you pull up, as close to your leg as possible, and as quickly as possible.
I found that a lot of hair came out but not all my hair. I did reuse the woven strip a few times to get rid of a bit more hair. When I was done, most of my hair was gone, just a bit was left. Once you’re done with the wax you use the finishing wipes to remove the waxy residue. (Never use the oil wipes or water to clean you wax refill, this will make the wax not roll out properly)
My thoughts? Although I didn’t get perfectly clean legs, I still think it was working, the majority of my leg hair was gone. I think once I get the hang of using this kit I might get better results. The roll-on kit was very simple to use and the direction are very clear on what to do. I do like that there isn’t a lot of mess when using the roll-on applicator. I’ve seen people try to apply the wax from a heated jar and a stick and the mess it creates make me cringe. With the Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit you don’t have a mess, just a bit of sticky left on your leg that comes off with the wipes. The only thing I was mainly disappointed about is the non woven strips, there aren’t a lot of them and I used them all on both legs, if I want to use this again I will need to go out and by more strips.
