Okay, I am exaggerating. Veet Hair Removal Cream did work for me, but only on the first few times that I used it. When the tube reached halfway, the effectivity of the cream diminished, no matter if I let it stay 6 minutes (which is the maximum) or if I slathered my entire leg with the cream.
What I don't like about Veet is that it takes a lot of the product to get the job done. All the hairs should be smothered, like that of a shaving cream. In the areas that I have applied a thin portion the hair would still stand out. The instruction on the label also said that the maximum time that the cream has to stay on the skin is 6 minutes. But they claim that it can do the job in 3. The first time I used it, of course, I followed the 3-minute timing. A lot of hairs were left standing. The second time, I maxed out the 6 minutes and got good results. But the good results only turned out after a few uses.
I just wonder if Veet should be consumed in just a certain number of months? But it does not say so on the label. Mine is like 5 months old now. Does it lose its effectivity? That I am not sure. But one thing I am sure, it no longer works now.
Additionally, I hate the way it smells. It smelled of the fluid used for perming when I was a child. And it is irritating to my nostrils.
But to be fair, when it was able to remove the hairs on my legs, my skin was really soft and supple because I got the one with Shea butter and lily for dry skin.
Anyway, I went back to shaving and got nicks. So now, I am still on the lookout for a good quality product that I can afford.
