Veet Easy Wax - my advice? Save your money

So I stupidly believed the advertising and thought this would be a good alternative to going to a salon

It isn't

Had to heat wax for about an hour to come out in even strips. The packaging doesn't tell you to use the strips several times (you need to or you'll go through them all one one leg) and even if you pull strips off super quick, with skin taut and hairs long enough you still leave half of them on your leg.

It was £15 in tesco and a complete waste.

Am not surprised.

The only wax I have found remotely successful is the stuff in big plastic tubs which you heat up dangerouly in the microwave.

The others are all useless on my bristles.

Epilator is much less messy and rips the hairs out.

Yep, normally use a Braun epilator but recently it's started to go slow ( think its on the way out)

Should just save up and get a new one!
