I used this product for hair removal (obviously) and I still have each and every hair I wanted to remove, plus a sticky residue that just won't quit. I have no idea what to use to remove this mess. My local supermarket didn't have the product I normally use - the one that actually works! So I bought this joke of a product. It doesn't take the hair off, it leaves you covered in a sticky glue like mess. I don't understand how it can be so sticky and glue like but leave every hair in it's original follicle

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.
Worst product ever
The first time I tried to use it on my armpits it did not take away any hair but was left with the pink strip on my pits which are literally like super glue. At that time I just thought I was doing it wrong but the second time I used it the same thing happened. The glue is so hard to get off and they only had 2 finish wipes when there are 20 wax strips. I strongly recommend you to never buy this product.
Waste of time, effort and money!!
I used the veet gelwax strips on my upper lip, and followed all instructions. It managed to get a total of 4 hairs out and a chunk of my skin!! OW!! I now have a red and very sore upper lip still covered in hair. I don't even want to pass these onto a friend to use. Absolutely awful and the advertisement on the packaging is misleading and false. It does NOT grip onto hair easily... It barely gripped onto any!!

Questions & Answers
I tried last night and ended up with a gooey mess. It took oil and 20 minutes to get it all off of my skin? What did I do wrong?
