Those who use Nair/Veet regularly for bikini line, how often do you do it?

I am a recent convert! The tube says leave 72 hours between treatments, do you do it x2 weekly? Or once week?

On holiday I normally do it a few times a week. Under normal circumstances, probably about once every 3 weeks blush

I guess if it says leave 72hrs between treatments that's what you should do. Are you using a cream specifically for bikini line and also one for sensitive skin? I find the sensitive skin ones less harsh

Hello MsW, yes a sensitive one. How long would you say it takes before you need to do it again? Does it improve with use as well?

When I'm on holiday and wearing a bikini I normally get 3 days of it before you can feel regrowth and need to do it again. I can't say it makes a difference to hair regrowth the more you use it like waxing does but it's hassle free and doesn't give me ingrown hairs like waxing did.

How long do you leave it on for? I found it had no effect whatsoever smile
