Awful smell and side effects!
It does what it says, which is to remove leg hair. But the smell of the product i just awful! You could tell it contained plenty of nasty products as well first, it stinks and two, if you can just put shaving cream on your legs and scrape it off with some sort of plastic spatula, there's going to be something really bad in there for it to be able to just be removed by a plastic spatula!
I don't have sensitive on my legs but this product gave me red dots all over my legs and when I put body lotion after shaving, my legs were stinging! I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone

Works ok but is only thing my skin doesn't react to
So I prefer the cream to shaving but I do find that most creams irritate my skin so badly I break out in a rash. This is the only cream gentle enough for my skin which is great. Because it is so gentle on your skin it is also gentler on the hairs but overall it works quite well i found. Is a little pricey though unfortunately. Might try a different one next time

having always shaved I tried veet
easy to use. but still has that horrible smell
you need to use it twice to get a smooth result
need to do this on the edge of the bath so that you can rinse off properly. not sure what is a bigger hassle. shaving or this

Hair grew back softer
This product was something new I wanted to try. I was a bit irked that the root was still in my skin, I prefer the idea of waxing to just rip it all out. It was interesting to watch the hair fizzle up but did concern me what this was doing to my skin! The spatula made me feel like I was shaving my legs and left my skin hair-free, smooth and shiny. However the smell could do with improvement and hair grows back quickly - not so good. After several uses I did notice the hair was not so coarse - a plus!

Works well, not a fan of the smell
I won this, along with other VEET products in an online competition some time ago. I had never used hair removal cream before so I was keen to try this.
The pack comes with a tube of the hair removal cream and a spatula. The instructions are easy to follow. I tried the cream on a patch on my arm as a test, because I have sensitive skin. The test was a success (no skin irritation at all, good hair removal) and I tried both my forearms and my legs the next day.
First of all, I'm not a fan of the cream's smell. It smells like some old-fashioned hair dye, very chemical. I have found that for me, it takes a bit longer than the minimum 5 minutes as per instructions to work, even though I have fine hair. Dilemma time: if I start scraping off the cream around 5 - 6 minutes, the removal doesn't work as well. But if I start scraping off around 8 minutes or so, it works, but my skin will start burning too. The burning sensation and mild redness on my arms was gone once I finished scraping and washing off. However, because of that, I'm hesitant to try this on my bikini area! Very strange as I followed the instructions (minimum 5 minutes, less than 10) and this product is supposed to be for sensitive skin.
However I am impressed that it's been 3 days since I used the cream on my legs, there's so little regrowth I can't even feel it. This is a big plus.
Overall this is a decent product. I will continue to use this product on less sensitive area like my legs, but won't be using it anywhere else.

i did not like this product one bit, it actually burnt my skin even after i tested on a sensitive part of my skin overnight. The fact that the smell itself can turn you off, should stop you from putting this on your face. it felt like acid was burning on my face, and will definately not use it again.. ever. Would not recommend this to anyone. RESPONSE FROM VEET: Hi Shan228, we’re sorry to hear that you haven’t had the best experience using the Veet Hair Removal Cream!

Does the job well
I have used this cream plenty of times and never had any problems with it. I always put quite a bit of and leave it for about twice the recommended time. I have tried to leave it for the recommended time but it just didn't work very well but when I left it for longer it was fine. It does smell pretty bad I have to admit but does the job for me.

Does the job.
This is a good hair removal cream, great for the bikini line. I have really sensitive skin and luckily didn't have any reaction to this cream! My only issue with it is, like all hair removal cream, that smell!

Worst product ever!
There are times when I really feel like there should be a '0 star' option for the beautyheaven ratings - this is one of those times.
What can I say? There is a long list of cons, with not a single pro.
So here goes:
-Doesn't actually fulfill its purpose. This cream would be more effective as a moisturizer then a hair removal product.
-Stings.. a lot. Which is annoying given its supposedly a 'sensitive skin' product.
-Dries on the skin right away. I am not sure whether it is my skin or this product that is the problem, but given the numerous problems I (and judging from some of the other previous reviews - many other bh members) have experienced with this product I select the latter. As soon as I apply it this cream practically seeps in my skin and (as mentioned above) causes this irritating sting.
-Smells horrible. Like, seriously horrible. Considering it allegedly contains aloe vera and vitamin E you'd think the smell would at least be BEARABLE, but no such luck. It's a very irritating, chemical smell that in itself is enough to deter one from using the product.
-Price. Admittedly, it is a lot cheaper then most other hair removal alternatives. But as it achieves absolutely NOTHING that it promises, I believe that every single cent spent on this product is a complete and total waste.
My advice for anyone looking for a hair removal cream is stay far away from this product! I have not used many other Veet products but the disappointing, appalling experience I have had with this product has regrettably deterred me from ever using this brand again.

Works but a stinker!
Great for sensitive areas like bikini but a little messy. Stinks out your legs and bathroom for days! On a positive note, leaves skin smooth, soothed and hair free.
