I have a tendency to do my own waxing as I find that it isn't that hard and sometimes, I don't have time to make an appointment to get it done by professionals. So, it's no surprise when my wax strips were running low, I went to grab some to use. As I was browsing around, I saw that there's one type that I've not tried before; Veet Wax strips with Shea Butter and Berry. Me being me, I went ahead and grab it cause, I mean, hey, it's a brand that I've always been buying on and off, how wrong could it get, right? Oh boy, how wrong was I on this account.
When I opened it, the strips looks fine and dandy. It's looks so neat and pink on its own, plus it smells of berry. A nice change to those sticky wax that I used last time (I can't remember if they smell though). Well, that's where are its niceties ends.
The minute I split the strips apart, I have an odd feeling over it. It's hard! I mean, most wax aren't that hard, not the type that I am familiar with anyway. Thinking it wasn't anything, I applied it and wax away. Tending to use the strips 2 to 3 times, I stick it onto my leg again and tried to wax again. Failure is the word. It doesn't work, it barely able to remove any hair the second time round. Anyhow, I continue to give it a try.
The horror/ disaster begun when I used the 2nd pair of strips. When I try to remove it, the whole wax STUCK onto my skin and it got removed from its strip. Man, that continued for like 4 pairs of the strips. I could only use them twice and some only once! It is just terrible.
There was never once were I could use the wax strips properly and out of the 20 strips, I used 12 of them @.@
This is a definite no buy for me. I was really turned off and appalled by the fact that it's stated as stronger grip on the box. Disaster... disaster...A definite no to rebuying this.
