VEET EASYWAX AT HOME


It took me a really, really long time to use this kit. Why? Well, because I'm lazy, because I thought it looked complicated and because I could just go somewhere and pay to have someone wax me (FYI - only wax my arms and eyebrows!). On trying this at-home kit for the first time, I was a little unsure but quickly worked out that this is possibly one of the best kits that has found itself in my hot little hands. Keep reading if you're interested in finding a super easy DIY at-home salon waxing kit!

This babe contains a heating device, and a wax cartridge which sits in said device. Easy to grip and comes with an excellent stand for storage and to stand the device while it is heating. You place the cartridge inside the heater, plug it in and let it heat for a good 20 minutes, but no more than 40. I found that I needed much closer to 40 minutes to get the wax flowing. The top of the cartridge has a roller on it, and this is how the wax gets on to your skin. Simply roll the wax in the direction of the hair growth, and apply the paper strips, grip the end and pull quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth. 

I was required to heat the wax for a bit longer than the instructions stated, but do remember to keep checking periodically. The wax is ready when it rolls across the skin in an even layer. What I really love about this kit is the great consistency of the wax, and the paper strips provided. You can use these many times, and I find this method to be 100x more effective than wax strips that have pre-loaded wax on the strip. The wax applies at a perfect temperature and is never too hot, and the formula has a pretty scent and was so effective at removing all my hair in one go. Considering how hesitant I was to try out this kit, I am super pleased with the results. 

I'm not too sure how long the wax refills last for, but so far I've managed two full arm waxes without any issues. The kit also includes some after-care wipes to soothe the skin and remove any sticky residue. The kit is suitable for all skin types, and can be used on the arms, legs and underarms. For both beginners and seasoned professionals, I would recommend giving this one a shot. 

The EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit retails for around $40 and the refills go for around $15. Absolutely worth it in my books, as one session at the salon might set you back $15-45.
