This product is like that chocolate pie from The Help
I have had a nightmare time with the Veet wax strips. Absolutely no actual hair removal, excessive sticky residue that was a nightmare to get off and despite the fact that they were labelled as "for sensitive skin", they were surprisingly painful for a product with no results. Absolute rubbish. It was like setting your skin on fire and beating it out with a golf shoe. Do not recommend, at all, ever
Left sticky blue wax on skin with little hair removal!
The residual wax left on my skin took ages to get off with multiple creams as their wipe was useless. Do not buy. It Leaves your skin extremely sore and sticky. Woolworths should remove it from shelves and complain / ban sales of this veet as it gives them and other stores a bad name. It’s not their fault, they just sell it.
This is an equal to super Glue
Nobody should ever by this product. This is a trap. You will end up in a mess with sticky body parts. You'll have to use another oil or a cream to remove this stickiness. Please don't get caught to this crap.

Wish I had read the reviews first!!!
Looked up best wax strips for facial hair; VEET always coming out on top.
Being of a mature age and sprouting a few dark hairs on upper lip, tweezers were not getting all, and having waxed many moons ago, thought maybe a better option.
Well the tacky blue wax appeared to remove, leaving residue, and although fiddly, and a little painful, skin appearing slightly red, my skin felt smooth.
Not so the next day; a couple of bumps, and flaking skin, so really quite harsh, three days later skin feels rough, and still flaky.
I will not use Face Precision Wax Strips, (easy Gelwax) again...for sensitive skin, hate to think what the other products are like.
Extremely terrible!!! Nightmare!!!!
It was my first time trying this wax strips, and it will be my last time!!!! Never again!!! First of all, it was immensely hard to remove and my skin was so painful while tearing off the strips. Second, a massive amount of blue gel stays on my skin. I took an hour-long bath, but STILL CAN'T GET RID OF IT!!! Though there are two wipes provided inside the package, it won't be enough if such a large amount of gel left on your skin!!!! I even got red dots after using this product!!!!! DO NOT BUY IT!!!! Such terrible product should have never been put out to the market!!!

Nothing sticks better than Veet wax strips!
Although thr product looks simple and easy to use — this is not the case. It may remove most hair, however, several applications are required, resulting in sticky residue, excessive pain and skin irritation. Don’t short change yourself...

Terrible experience. Left my leg looking awful.
I wish I had never used these Veet wax strips. I only did the bottom of 1 leg before I had to stop due to the amount of pain I was in. Not due to removing the strips but the way they made my leg. It caused bruising, burning and bright red spots that were still there days later. Never again and I will be telling other to avoid them too.
I wish i could add a picture to show what these have done to my legs.
This product should be banned and taken off the market and the users compensated for their disfiguration. The marks left on my leg look like 2nd degree burns. Its been a week and my legs are no better. Im extremely concerned. I wish i had of seen these reviews i never would have purchased them.
Questions & Answers
How do you get residual wax off armpits?! I’m not took off about 1/4 of hair so gave up!! I used the “wipes“ (2 small ones) Which were waste of time. Trying to get residual wax was a nightmare. Used soap, aloe Vera gel, Aloe propolis Cream and nothing got it off despite scrubbing! UnderArms were sore, bleeding in parts and stinging!! I slathered on tonnes of aloe propolis cream, put my pjs on and went to bed! Woke up with furry armpits as everything stuck to the leftover wax!!! Don’t waste your money on this product at all! Underarms sore with red scarring and still left with hair!! You wouldn’t mind with sore pits IF it worked, however alas it doesn’t. Shouldn’t be on the market as it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to! I’m amazed Veet can get away with advertising this crap!! DO NOT BUY!
I am experiencing the same odd things with my skin coz of best wax strips. dark spots lines on my hands is that because of gum?
