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.

Good product but doesnt last that long
I love how quick, easy and simple these wax strips are. They arent extremely painful to use and dont have a overly bad smell but hair starts to grow back 2-3 weeks after waxing??
Just wished that the hair didnt grow back as fast

Good! Picked up the shorter hairs when I was too impatient to wait another week to wax
Left a sticky residue - so not that good for a quick fix as you run out the door. Strips are a good size. Melt with little rubbing on hot days

I liked the easy grip, being able to cut into sizes so I could use in different areas which is also good and allows me to not waste. Don't like residue it leaves even though it's taken off the hair.

These where very difficult and left me with a rash.
They smelt good.
Maybe a experienced waxer could do well, but these wernt easy at all to heat at all.

Grips tiny hairs and leaves none behind
Awesome gripping action, last few times have left my skin a bit irritated. It is worth it though.

these wax strips are good if your in a hurry and want to get rid of hair easily, however I did find that the wax residue was really hard to get off even with lots of scrubbing in the shower which was a pain.

Super easy to use
I like to have a packet of wax strips on hand for emergencies between salon visits and these were quite good. They are easy to use and don't make a mess or leave wax on the skin. They are easy to warm between your hands and the grip means they are quick and hassle free to use.

Effective but no professional
If you run out of the after waxing wipes, just use a good body oil like Bio Oil it works just as well.

The tab is pretty useful I found, easy to separate the pieces, easy to apply, pat and easy to rip it right off again!
Gave a beautiful soft and smooth result, however I still find waxing my legs a nightmare a few days later, my skin just doesn't understand that exfoliating and moisturising is supposed to keep the ingrowns away!

not a fan of these wax strips, i don't know if it was because the hair on my legs weren't quite long enough or if it was just the wax, but they only pulled out a few hairs, really not impressed with these.

I like these wax strips, i would have rated them higher apart from i didn't like how they left pink on me and i could only reuse a couple of times before being ineffective. These strips don't make me break out in a rash like others have.

good but not great.
I absolutely love the new grip tab, it makes it easier, however i didnt really have that much of an issue with the old design. I found that i can use each strip 4-5 times before i need to start on a new one (maybe 3-4 if ive let my leg hair go wild, e.g. winter). The only criticism I can make is that they really need to work on their oil wipes. I don't find that they are sufficient. I always have to whip out the lavendar oil and some cotton pads to remove what wax was not removed by the oil wipes... I guess thats another issue, i tend to get alot of wax stuck to my skin... and its not that easy to remove. BUt other wise a great product for home use!

Best wax ever!
I love these wax strips! It's sucha good invention! Love the new easy grip but the old one is just as good.
This makes the job so easy compared to other wax products. All I need to do is warm it a few sec between the hands n then apply it on the area and pull. It removes all my hairs so effectivly and my hairs are quite stubborn. Not a single bad thing to say about this product. I've been using it for a long time and never had any problems. It's very easy to use as a newbie and you can adjust and cut the strips if u want to use it under ur arms or bikini area. Very clever :) Saves me so much money not having to go to the salon. Good price too and easy to buy from any were!

i dont know why, but these strips tend to cause ingrown hair for me. i didnt know if it was from this product, but when i stopped using it, by ingrowns dissapeared after a ood exfolitation. i'll stick with shaving.:)

A quick fix
I found this product easy to use although the wax would come of the striip and stuck to my leg and I had to do a couple of times. The strips had a pleasant smell from the essential oil in the wax.
I feel it needed more strength better grip in the wax to give me a cleaner finish
