While out shopping with a friend, I suddenly remembered I needed depilatory cream. The store didn’t have my usual, so I start studying the available options. I notice that Veet has a pink bottle, and a corresponding blue bottle. I didn’t have my glasses with me, so through the powers of reasoning decided thus: pink bottle must be for bits, so that’s what I bought.
That evening while in the shower, the other half swaggers into the bathroom grinning, butt naked, with the nether regions generously coated in Veet. I of course laughed.
Nek minut, h...
Used it couple of times
But recently bought new tube and it burnt my skin on both legs within 4 minutes of applying it. It’s been more than a week and I tried to lodge complaints but VEET number does not work. Then operator asks for voicemail to call back. I didn’t hear anything back. I haven’t been to work. Can’t walk or drive as my leg is swollen. Very painful and the company does not want to take any responsibility that’s why they don’t have any contact details.
Company should be closed
Allergic reaction/burns to underarms
I used this on my legs the day before and it seemed to work well, a few patches here and there but I decided it might have been how I applied it.
The next day I used it on my underarms, and had it on for 5 minutes before I started to remove it. As soon as I started a burning/stinging feeling came and I immediately stopped and couldn’t continue because it hurt so much. Now my underarms are half hairy and very red. Skin is very sore and irritated. I would half recommend for your legs, but not anywhere sensitive.
Left burns and cuts, Allergic reaction to skin
I tried this on my arms and underarms cause i thought it would be easy and convenient. I won’t lie, it did remove the hair well (but not from the roots ofcourse) and left my skin a little soft. But i also got an allergic reaction in my underarms right while i was in the shower and my arms burnt. By the end of the day, my arms had these small red spots all over and my underarms felt like the skin was scraped off. The allergic reaction turned worse the next day when i had puss coming out of my underarms and burnt skin. DO NOT RECOMMEND this at all.
This product is horrible. I'm a very hairy person overall and in the past I've used "Nair". One thing about Nhair is it stinks really bad and can have a burning effect if you leave it on for too long or if you have sensitive skin but it works great!! Veet is the WORST hair removal cream i have ever bought. I will NEVER spend my money on it again. I spent about $7-$8 on this product and it did NOT please me. I left the product on my skin for 10 minutes as it said you should, & as i went to remove it, NO hair came off. Then I put it on again for ...another 10 minutes & NOTHING happened. I'm absolutely upset and i will never again buy this product. If i could get my money back i would. If you're looking for a product, choose hair!! and if not that, then just stick to shaving because veet is NOT worth it.
Not worth it !!! I paid like $7-8 for it and all it did was leave me with a burn. It didn't take anyhairs off ! I had it on for less than a minute. Maybe even a few seconds. As soon as I put it on it was burning I rinsed it off right away now the area is very red and burning and just all around painful.
Removes hairs but burns!
I tried this on my legs and underarms, leaving it on for about 10 minutes before scraping it all off in the shower. Most of the hairs did come off quite easily but it left my skin tingling and when I went to bed shortly after, my skin started to burn, especially the underarms! Then when I checked my skin in the morning, I noticed that the hairs were not gone from the root; a lot of them were still around 0.5-1mm above the skin. Skin still feels smoother than a day or two after shaving (not as stubbly), but I'm hesitant about using such a harsh product on my skin again.
I'm a hairy person and it removed hairs
I love it, such a shame with all the bad reviews anyways. I timed it for exactly 15 minutes and most of my leg hairs were gone. Cause I'm pregnant I just shaved the small left over area on my left leg but that was all. It works great for me and of course I have to agree the smell is horrible though.
Veet Naturals In Shower Hair Removal Cream
I bought a tube of Veet Naturals In Shower Hair Removal Cream & after testing a small patch for any skin reactions (I had none) I went ahead & put it on both legs. On my first try I didn't put enough of the cream on so it didn't work very well. The second time I put a pair of disposable gloves on (works 10x better than using the sponge that it comes with) rubbed the cream on to my legs, making sure that I had put it on evenly. I waited for 8 minutes & then got into the shower. Using the sponge that comes with the cream I scrubbed the cream off ...in a circular motion. I was very happy to see that the cream had removed almost all of my hair. There were two small patches of roughly four hairs left on each thigh. I would highly suggest this cream to anyone. The only negative thing about it is the smell but I found that all hair removal creams have a bad smell & if I use my milk & honey shower milk straight after it hides the smell pretty well. It has been two days since I used the cream last & I have no reactions & no hairs poking through just yet. Stocking up on more cream now!
