best wax strips ever
These are the only wax strips I ever use at home for my underarms and I cut them smaller to use on my upper lip too. I have really thick and dark hair and this works wonders for me. Found them to be very easy to use and they get the job done very quickly.

Wow! Maybe I had a dodgy pack!
My usual brand were out so I purchased these.. REGRET. While in areas of fine / few hairs they did a reasonable job they were HORRIBLE in denser areas! You want the hair to stick to the wax not the other way. PAINFUL.
I should've known they were going to do that as when I separated the sheets (even if I didn't rub them at all!) the wax stuck at the ends. Ended up with wax all over my hands! Straight out of a new box they were like old wax strips that were over-heated.. Would not repurchase!

I actually prefer these to heating devices because its so much more easier to use no complex steps all you do it heat between your hands and pull two strips apart and apply to the legs, it will be painful the first time you us e them but the more times you use them then you get used to it i've used these on my arms legs bikini area and under arms with out some of the side effects i get with other waxes ( i have sensitive skin) i would defiantly recommend these to someone who has never waxed before, because its simple easy to use and they come with some wax remover wipes though i would invest in some baby oil because they never come with enough and baby oil does the trick too

Quite good, easy to use
I have repurchased these a few times now and find them easy to use, with good results (if not lasting the full 4 weeks advertised) and minimal pain. The tab at the bottom of the strip definitely makes for easier removal. Like some others I find some wax can remain but the wipes included deal with this easily enough. Even though my skin can be quite sensitive, I've not had any reactions or irritation after using these either.

Great wax strips.
I tried many different brands of wax in my dads and Veet is definitely one of the better ones. These strips are easy to use, remove all the hairs and have minimal residue left on my skin. I also didn't have any reactions to the wax which is handy because I have pretty sensitive skin.

A wax that works
I struggle to find a DIY wax that works for legs but this my friends is it. Quick, easy and grips easily to even small hairs. Best to use on legs as bikini and underarm might be sensitive. I end up using quite a bit so buy the 40 pack for legs.

Difficult for inexperienced home waxer
I tried these last year before i purchased my epilator, and found them very difficult to use. They left a sticky residue on my legs and i found it was patchy and didnt remove all the hair. This was probably down to my technique but was definately not quick and easy for an someone inexperienced with waxing like me.

I used them on my legs which had cultivated quite a forest. There was quite a lot of long legs which made the wax really satisfying to use. With all wax strips tho, there can be some wax residue as there was with this one. The finishing wipes Veet provides isn't that great and they only give 4 despite having 20 strips which you can reuse a number of times. Again, with all wax strips the knees are quite annoying but as mentioned before, using the same strip again and again does tend to help a lot. Overall, these are fairly easy to use, effective and smell nice

The best at home waxing!
This product is by far the easiest waxing product for the best results! Although it will take a whole packet to do both legs. It is simple and, as advertised, can be used on very short leg hair and work effectively! I recommend for at home waxers. It takes a short amount of time and is very easy. Good work Veet!

Works but leaves Residue.
It works really well, I'll admit. it takes out every hair,small or long with minimal pain. I'm dead scared of pain and waxing was scary for me but luckily these strips were not that painful at all on the legs. They left my legs really smooth.
The fragrance is a bit overwhelming I would say but that's just because I don't like the scent but others may. It's just seems a little too manufactured, the scent.
My only problem is the residue it leaves behind. It's a pale, pale pink wax and sticks to the legs and gets worse if you try to scrub it off with water so don't! They do provide the perfect finish wipes and they do get the residue off with some scrubbing which may irritate the skin. The perfect finish wipes also have a fragrance and leave an oily film on the skin after using them. I find that the residue is removed best if you leave the perfect finish film on it. This is oily and definitely not recommended as a quick solution.
The easy grip tabs which made purchasing slightly more expensive were in my opinion no difference to the older version of these wax strips. I liked how you could reuse the strips until they lost their stickyness and the fact that they could be cut up and used for other places.
My hair grew back in about 3 -4 weeks.
