50/50

I love the concept of this product. I get my body professionally waxed after experiencing many home self waxing kits in the past. The pink packaging of the product is girly. It's pink, you can't go wrong. The actual wax compartment itself fit nicely into my hands and I felt I had complete control as to where I wanted the wax to be applied on my body. I found that it was easier to use than the cold wax strips which you need to warm in your hands. Your hands can get messy easily when waxing, especially if you're trying to reach hard areas on your body, so having this nifty tool to glide the wax on in nice thin layers at perfect temperature is a great help. It would be wonderful if it came with more wax cloths, or specify if they were able to be washed and reused. Generally soaking the used cloths in hot water will lift the wax and hair right off and then you're able to dry and reuse the strips again. I found the wax residue I was able to get off my skin quite easily. I know there have been mixed reviews on this product previously, yet thankfully I have had a pleasant waxing experience. If I need to quickly do some DIY waxing, this kit seems like the perfect little thing for me.

Tips

The thinner the layer the better. Allow the wax to be as warm/hot as comfortable for you.

WORST WAX EVER!! RIPPED OFF SEVERAL LAYERS OF MY SKIN!

This was the worst waxing product I have ever used. I used it exactly as directed; the wax would not come off onto the strips and did not remove the hairs. I had to try to remove the wax several times before anything significant would come off. Once the wax actually did come off my skin, it ripped off several layers of my skin!!! I have MASSIVE wounds on my skin from this product. I am an experienced waxer, and this has NEVER happened to me before with any other product. I am in SO much pain, my skin is unsightly and I look like a burn victim. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT! Do yourself a favour and buy ANYTHING ELSE.

Tips

I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE NEAR THIS PRODUCT AGAIN!

This has done nothing but SCAR my skin!!!

Great Results, but....

I bought this product as I was looking for an alternative to the pre-waxed strips I normally use and the advertisement made it look fun, quick and easy! However it was neither of the three!

The information leaflet says after 20mins your wax will be ready to apply. After 20mins nothing came out, I waited another 5mins as the leaflet states, still nothing..After an hour of heating up we were ready to go!

The wax applies in a thick layer that somewhat resembles a melted crayon. After following the instructions on use, the hair remained. I found though if i applied two coats of wax, one on top of the other, then applied the strip, smoothed for 30 seconds then pulled off the strip, all the hair was removed. This is somewhat time consuming.

I read that others were having trouble removing excess wax from their legs with the aftercare wipe, I used the used wax strips to remove excess wax and then used the wipe which removed anything that was left. My legs are undoubtedly smooth, silky and hairless but the device does take a lot of getting use to and can simply be a case of trail and error. It could benefit from a light that told you when the wax was ready and more strips, or better yet, reusable cotton strips (much better for the environment!)

Tips

It's an ideal product for experienced waxers but I wouldn't recommend it for novices.

I will continue to use this product and hopefully now I know what to expect the next use should be a more positive one!

Bad so far

My Grammy bought this system for me and I just tried my under arms and bikini area with it and it didn't work, it pulled a few hairs out but that was it, i tried reapply and waxing it about 5 times and still only pulling a few hairs out, I did try this wax on my Grammies legs and it worked beautifully I still have to try it on mine, but for under arms and bikini area it's not good at all, I also have tried tons of other bikini waxes and they've never worked for me, nothing much seems to work for my bikini area and under arms!

Satisfactory

Well i bought this electric roll on and was very excited. After i bought this i thought lets see its review online. It was rather Scary to see bad reviews after purchasing the product. Since i'd already purchased it i was left with no choice. I tried it and found its not that bad. From the reviews i already knew the electric heater is slow so instead of using electric heater i put this refill in microwave for 3 minutes and it worked. I was waxing myself for the first time. Being novice it was not hard to use Veet roll on. The strips were good and so were the wipes. I am satisfied with this product.

Tips

Lets face it, i had a hard growth and it pulled out maximum hair without much pain.

I will give 3 stars to Veet Roll on.

Terrible

This is the worst wax I have ever used, it doesn't affectively remove the hair and for the price you pay you expect a good product. This is not a good product.
I want my money back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Takes the skin off and leaves red sore marks

This is a terrible wax. It has a melted plastic consistency which does not effectively remove the hair. In addition it leaves red scarring marks which are very sore after finishing. You cannot remove the wax from your skin very well, not even with the oil wipes provided. It definitely does not come off with soap. Definitley not to buy until the wax used in this apparatus is changed. I want my money back!!!

Excellent, east to use

This really is an ideal waxing solution! Easy to use, nice thin layer of wax, then remove with the strips provided. The wipes to use afterwards are also great, removing any residue.

Tips

Found it easier to use with an extension cord.

Have used it on entire body, excellent!

Not as easy as advertised!

I wax very often and am always on the lookout for new products to make things easier...this is not one.

I liked the idea of having the wax contained in a roller but that was about the only positive I could find. It took much longer than the recommended 20 minutes to heat up and I had to keep re-heating it while waxing. I found it didn't grip the hair very well and only removed about half so I had to keep going over the same area several times.

The product says that it's good for 3-4 uses but doesn't include enough strips for that, especially if you have to keep going over the same area like I did. And unlike some waxes, it isn't water soluble, so you have use the greasy little after care wipes included. There are only 4 in the pack so good luck trying to get all that wax off!

To top it all off, I ended up with some nasty looking bruises and red patches on my legs, which has never happened before.

I normally really like Veet and I use their other products all the time. This is just one that won't be making my list!

Happy to trial it but will not purchase

I got this kit from BH to try and I was very excited because I have never self-waxed before. So it comes with a self heating device, a wax refill, a charger, 12 strips and 4 perfect finish wipes (to remove wax residues).

The instructions were fairly easy to follow. I followed the instructions considering how it was my first time waxing myself. So firstly, I heated the wax by putting the wax refill into the plugged heating device for a few minutes more than the 20 minutes stated on the instructions. I would estimate it to be around 23 minutes. I tried rolling it onto my leg without any success.

The instructions said to wax it for at least an additional 5 minutes if the wax did not roll easily on to the skin. So back it went to heat for another 10 minutes. This time, it rolled out coral pink wax. It was not the thin wax I was visualizing- like wax that has been melted, but rather thick wax that was not melted properly. I was not sure if that was right but I went ahead to roll it on since hey, I did follow instructions.

The instructions say to immediately place the strip over the layer of wax and rub the strip repeated over the wax in the direction of hair growth. I did that. And the next step is to very quickly pull the strip. I did that but to my surprise, nothing came out. So I put the strip back onto the waxed part. I left it on and rubbed the strip and pulled it off. STILL NOTHING HAPPENED. My leg hairs were still in place.

Not to be deterred, I put the strip back onto the waxed part and went ahead to roll on the wax onto another part of my leg. I put a clean strip and rubbed it in the direction of my hair growth. Seeing how the instructions were silent as to how long I should leave the strip on the wax before pulling it off and that my first try did not work, I left it on while rubbing it for a few minutes before trying to pull it. NOTHING CAME OUT.

I was getting discouraged but I put the 2nd strip back on the 2nd patch, rubbed it and tried my 3rd time with my 3rd strip on the 3rd patch. Nothing came out.

At the end of the day, my hair legs were still there. I tried repeating the steps to no avail. Even though there were no hairs attached onto the strips, it still hurt to pull the strips from the waxed parts of my legs.

The kit is meant to be good for 4 uses but honestly, I do not think that there are enough strips and perfect finishing wipes for 4 uses. It would take 3-4 strips per leg depending on how much leg surface area you have. Also, the wax is a pain to remove. 4 perfect finish wipes are not enough. Imagine those wet wipes you get from KFC. That is what the wipes reminded me of. It is slightly bigger or around the same size as a KFC wet wipe. Note that you can not use water to remove the wax and the instructions states that you need to use the perfect finish wipe or the back of a used strip to remove it.

I had to go back to my trusty razor to do the deed. I am giving it 2 stars because I am taking the following into consideration: I am unsure if I am doing something wrong or if the instructions are just dodgy or that the product itself is not good.
