I’m not really much of a beauty gadget girl; until recently my hair straighteners and blow dryer were the only appliances I needed. But then I discovered the Veet EasyWax electrical roll-on kit which promised ‘salon wax results at home.’ “Yeah, right!” I thought rather cynically.
Shaving proved to be such a hassle that I stopped a decade ago and have been waxing – using hot wax – ever since. Like most women, I have waxing treatments done at salons, and as much as I love being pampered (it’s really not that painful!) visiting salons requires time and money I don’t always have. While living in the States, I was shocked to see the price of waxing treatments in salons. Things are usually much cheaper in America than they are in Britain – but not getting your pins waxed! I knew that this was something I wouldn’t be able to do regularly due to the expense – and I hated the thought of looking like a cave woman!
Of course, I tried waxing at home. I’d buy a tub of wax and a pack of cloth strips and although effective, it proved to be very messy and time consuming. It was all that running down the stairs to the kitchen to reheat the tub of wax that was going cold! In the end I gave up and just stuck to visiting the salon whenever I could. Though I did worry about what I’d do if ever we moved back to Oregon. I didn’t want to bankrupt myself just because I wanted silky smooth legs!
Then I heard about the Veet EasyWax. It sounded like the answer to my prayers but a lot of my local stores didn’t stock them. it was only recently, when I moved to a new area that I managed to find one. It had already been very reasonably priced but now it was on SALE!!! talk about a stroke of luck! So I snapped one up but it was about another two weeks before I could put it to use.
The EasyWax is a handheld gadget that looks like a larger than average lady shaver. You pop a wax cartridge into the EasyWax, plug it in and wait for the wax to heat up. Then just roll it on and whip it off with the wax strips! It comes with a super simple set of instructions and I was absolutely delighted with the results. Cartridges can be bought separately. Most of the gadgets I buy only get used once before they’re consigned to spending the rest of their days cooped up inside the box they came in. It won’t be happening with the Veet EasyWax.
Worth every penny. Veet – we salute you!
