I was first turned on to Veet because I hated how my legs felt after shaving with a razor and I was always scared I'd cut myself, so I gave it a try. The best part of the product is how long it lasts. I typically don't have to shave for about 3 weeks, which is a dream! Right after shaving with the gel cream my skin feels very soft. I usually only leave it on for about five minutes before I remove it, but that varies if your hair is thicker or if you're shaving your legs instead of your armpits or something. You definitely need to watch how long you leave it on because it can irritate your skin if you leave it on too long. Some of the drawbacks are the scent, which isn't very pleasant but it's tolerable and disappears after removal or showering. Also if you're not shaving in the shower you might have to apply some water about halfway through because it gets a little dry and the water makes is easier to remove. The hair comes off very easily with the bladeless razor that's provided or even with a washcloth and you can apply it just about anywhere on your body. Overall I would definitely recommend the product because it lasts a long time and my hair has even grown back thinner than before.
