If you girls are anything like me, I leave everything to the last minute when it comes to prepping for a night out (oh, and for everything else in life). And in those hasty couple of hours, all I’m fussed about is doing my makeup and choosing an outfit whilst climbing over all the clothes trawled on the floor. It’s so frustrating as you pull on that final chosen dress, to remember that your legs have been in the midst of winter hibernation!
Having to jump back in the shower to get out the shaving cream and razor is inconvenient, and conventional waxing strips always leave sticky wax residue on my hands. That’s why it’s so good to know that Veet has come out with this little waxing package that gets the best of everything! Convenience and neatness are your top priorities for anything that requires you to be out the door in less than half an hour.
The Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit is a nifty little set including a wax cartridge, applicator, reusable strips and finishing wipes.
It looks pretty complicated but it’s actually extremely simple.
Here’s how you use it:
(btw there is already a really helpful instruction sheet inside if these instructions aren't enough!)
1. Simply pop the wax cartridge into the device. Attach it to the electrical cable and socket, and plug it in a power point.
Immediately the red light should pop up, indicating it is heating up. After only about five minutes I could feel it getting warmer.
2. The time stipulated on the instructions is 20 minutes. After unplugging it, the wax inside the refill cartridge should be hot enough, so that when you apply the device the wax just glides on. However I kept regularly checking and I found that it took about an hour before it glided on smoothly on my legs. The fact that my house is generally pretty cold may have something to do with that lol!
If you’re worried about it not warming up in time, you can pop it into the socket a bit earlier. For example, right before you get onto your makeup and hair routine! :)
3. However once it is actually ready, the applicator does glide on very smoothly! The best thing about this is my fingers didn’t have to come into contact with the wax at all. Just roll the applicator on your legs and the wax comes out from within the device fuss-free.
4. That’s pretty much all that’s unusual about the EasyWax. Once you have the wax on your legs I’m sure the next step is very familiar to everyone- applying the strips and pulling them off!
and lo and behold, smooth and silky legs! :D
To be honest I didn’t really have much hair on my legs to begin with, but even so the Veet EasyWax removes hair as short as 2mm! This is a dream for those who have dark hair, where even short ones might still be visible.
enjoying completely hair-free legs!
(and no I don't usually wear heels when waxing! think of this as a glamourised version of my waxing procedure, or alternatively a way to disguise my unattractive feet).
The EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit is $39.99 at leading supermarkets, pharmacies and independent retailers worldwide. It might seem a bit pricey at first, but you are paying for a waxing kit that will last you for ages, as well as the luxuries and benefits of in-salon treatment- such as clean hands and convenience!
