Salon results at home
The Veet at home waxing system is one of the best at-home salon result hair removal methods that I have come across.
Included in the box are the wax cartridge, non-woven strips, the waxing unit, post depilitary wipes and a base unit to hold the device.
The instructions state that the unit takes approximately 20 minutes to heat up, however I have found that it is more effective if you allow about 40-45 minutes. This allows the wax to go on more thinly and makes the hair removal easier.
Once you have applied the wax you put the non-woven strip over the area and press firmly before grabbing the end and ripping the strip off in the opposite direction to the hair growth. It sounds painful but it really isn’t too bad.
I am used to the pain of epilating and have been either waxing or epilating for about 20 years so find that it is quite bearable. I also prefer either of these methods as compared to shaving as the hair takes much longer to grow back, and the hair is softer once it does grow back.
I found the unit sits comfortably in the hand and the wax glides easily onto the skin without dragging. The only issue that I had was that the wax seemed to cool down a little more quickly that I would have liked. It was approximately 14 degrees on the day I used this so both the wax and my legs got cold.
I used 3 strips on the lower leg which was probably one more than I would use once I am more experienced. I think that I could have used a little less wax and still got a great result.
It took me approximately 10 minutes to wax the lower half of my leg and it was extremely smooth and hair free. I normally suffer from extreme redness after waxing, but I did not have any redness at all (it wasn’t even a little pink).
My legs remained relatively hair free for approximately 3 weeks and I have continued to use this great waxing unit since receiving it.
I have since purchased the bikini and underarm wax and will be putting it to the test really soon.

Easy roll to smooth skin
I was on the trial team for this product and I am so glad I was. It is a great new product to use and I recommend everyone should try it.
Following the instructions was pretty simple and easy to do. The wax did not heat up in the 20mins. I waited 40 mins and I think it was only just ready. I would wait a little bit longer next time because I had trouble getting the wax to come out.
The wax came out in an even consistency and was pink. Using the wax removal strips provided was super easy, and I had smooth legs in no time. Only 12 strips were provided which was annoying, but this is the same with every waxing product. For smaller areas I think this would be perfect and at the end of it all, I did receive salon results. My legs were amazingly smooth and not much residue at all as the cleansing wipes did their job.

ALL you need for smooth results!
WOW i was soo excited to be apart of this trial thanks so much BH!!!
comes with all u need ...
after wax wipes
TIME :definatly takes at least 40 mins (not 20 like the instructions say) for the wax to heat up , as i managed to dye my hair while i was waiting for it to hair
the wax come out a neon pink colour, the TEMPERATURE is perfect on contact.
SMELL: smells like crayons!!?
i waxed my ARMS first , very happy with the results as i only used 4 strips , i used them twice each time ,no more than that because then the wax goes all patchy and stuck back on my arm. but BAD POINT: I FOUND IT PINCHED MY ARM AS I APPLIED THE WAX.
i think i needed to let the hair grow a bit more , i did get lots off but, i did it in dull light so ill need to shave the odd ones off. i found my legs hurt more than my arms did lol.
the AFTER WAX strip smells nice and removes the remaining wax from the skin.
MY CONCLUSION : I AM QUITE SATISFIED AND I WOULD DEFINATELY CONTINUE BUYING MORE WAX STRIPS IF ITS A REASONABLE PRICE FOR THE REFILS.

Trial Team - Hair today, gone tomorrow
I’m a big fan of waxing but it can be a pain having to make (and pay for) regular trips to the beauty therapist every time I want to show my bare legs. I was really excited by this product’s claims of giving salon wax results at home. I can say straight up that this product delivers on that claim.
The design of this product made it really easy to use. The applicator is made of white plastic with pink silicone strips down each side, making it comfortable to hold. The rectangular wax cartridge is inserted into the applicator which, once plugged in, sits in the holder until heated up and ready for use. Like other reviewers I found the 20 minute heating time a definite underestimation. I left the applicator plugged in for 50 mins to an hour until the wax was ready to use and I didn’t find this a big issue.
Once heated, you roll the applicator down your leg in the direction of hair growth using light pressure. The wax applies in a thin strip and, like anything, takes a bit of practice to apply evenly. Once I got the hang of it I found it incredibly easy and mess-free to use. Compared to Veet’s wax strips I found this MUCH easier and quicker. The wax has a faint smoky scent and was very effective at completely removing my leg hair (and I had a definite crop situation happening in anticipation of the trial). I found the results to be almost identical to those I would get from having my legs professionally waxed. I’m talking smoother-than-Barry-White results.
After the wax cartridge had cooled, I held it up to the light to see how much was left. To de-fuzz both half legs (from above the knee) I used one quarter of the wax which is consistent with the product’s claims of lasting for 4 waxing sessions. I used about 6 of the 12 cotton strips included in the pack, but with more practice I could probably manage to use less as the same strip can be used multiple times.
I usually use an epilator for at-home leg hair removal, but I am now converted to using this product as I find waxing is much better for my legs. My legs are sensitive to shaving and I experienced no sensitivity or reaction from the wax. Highly recommend!

My new best friend.
I have been an at home leg waxer on and off for years and my frustrations with the mess, the stickiness, the skin irritation, and general ineffectiveness with most products on the market always lead me back to a salon to have someone else do the waxing while I lay back and relax. So when I was asked to trial Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit I was extreemly curious as to whether it would live up to its claims. My expectations were low after reading a few reviews online. Thankfully it has been a pleasant surprise to discover that I love this product!
The device is an easy to hold applicator that plugs into an electrical cable to heat up the wax. The packaging states it should take around 20mins to be adequately heated. It doesn't. I waited 40mins and the wax still wasn't rolling out smoothly. I stopped counting the time at this point but I'd estimate it was 50mins before the wax was ready to use. But here my frustrations ended becuase the wax is a dream to use.
It glides out of the applicator so smoothly and the bright pink wax makes it easy to see which areas you have covered. I used the fabric strips as directed, and it was goodbye hair. So easy. So painless. So mess free. The wax only goes on the areas I apply it to with the applicator. No drips. Any sticky reidue on my legs once I was finished was easily removed with the finishing wipes and the back of a used wax strip. Easy, easy, easy! And no skin irritation for me either. No ugly red bumps for a day after waxing. Which means I can show off my hair free skin straight away.
I waxed both my legs, my full legs, and while I did use all the strips and two finish wipes, I still have about 2/3 of the wax left. I think with what remains I will get another two full leg waxing sessions. I'm not too bothered that I've used all the strips as I usually make my own from calico, and I usually use body oil or rubbing alcohol to remove wax residues, so running out of finishing wipes on my second use won't bother me either.
I think this would be a great wax for begginners and experienced waxers alike, but it would be nice if Veet provided more strips and finishing wipes. I also hope they revise the wording for the heating time before the product launches in Australia. It is so misleading and when people hear it takes at least twice the stated 20mins wax heating time, they may decide not to try it out at all.
I'm just so happy to have found a wax that works so well, which is applied through a device that makes it all so simple. I will definitely be getting the refills for this product. And telling my friends to stop going to the salon and buy this wax. It's easy and I love it.

For smooth legs and arms
I was very excited to try out this kit because I never had a chance to try something like that.
The packaging is nice and girly with pink strips on the device and the cartridge is easy to fix in the device. Wax is orange in colour and doesn't smell which is good.
On the instruction booklet it os stated to heat the wax for 20 min but it took me good 50 min to heat the wax properly which is a bit disappointing.
After heating the wax it was a bit difficult to get the roll on working properly but after few troubles it worked great and made waxing so much easier for me. It took almost all the hair in one go and left my skin feeling soft and smooth.
I am very impressed with the result and it felt like I had a wax in salon. It only took me half an hour to get my both the legs and arms wax done which is great.
I also comes with 12 waxing strips and 4 finishing wipes to help remove any wax residue.
Overall I am very happy witth results and definitely going to repurchase it because it made waxing a breeze for me.

I’ve waxed my own legs for many years and have used countless different kinds of pots, strips and roll-ons. After using the new Veet easy wax electrical roll-on kit I can happily say it is up there with the best I have ever used.
After heating the unit the temperature of the wax was just right and the roller dispensed a perfect amount of wax onto the skin easily, with no tugging or pulling. The pink wax was easy to see on the skin, making it easy to see where I had applied it. It removed almost all the hair with one application.
I have quite sensitive skin and often have a lot of redness after waxing, but not with this product. I had hardly any redness and significantly less ingrowns too. I also found this wax didn’t hurt as much as some I’ve used. Not sure why? But it was definitely less painful!
Veet claim the cartridge is enough for four half leg waxes, yet I did a half leg wax to just above my knees and used less than 1/8 of the cartridge, so I should get more than four waxes out of the cartridge. Because the wax goes on thinner and I didn’t have to re-wax areas, I applied much less than I would normally use when using a pot. I used 2 of the 12 strips and one of the 4 wipes. I did keep the device plugged in while using it and probably wouldn’t recommend unplugging it for too long.
I will be interested to see how much the replacement cartridges are. Provided they aren’t too expensive (compared to other wax products) I will definitely be rebuying and using this product again and again!

Easy peasy waxing.
I trialled this product for the trial team.
I have tried at home waxing kits before with average results.
I had given up on DIY.
I turned on the compact device with wax cartridge, it took a little longer to heat than the time recommended, although the quick and easiness of applying the wax and removing with the strips is quite efficient.
The pink colored wax is easy to see on the legs.
My legs where left smooth and hairless.
This is definitely the pick of the home waxing kits.
It's super easy to use with great results.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to wax at home.
Will definitely purchase a new cartridge.

Veet EasyWax Trial
Having only had experience with at-home wax that needs to be heated (and reheated) on the stove or in a microwave, I was keen to try a self-heating home waxing system.
The Veet EasyWax was easy to assemble, simply insert the wax cartridge, rest the wax wand in the cradle, plug in the cord, and leave to heat. As the product under trial was the European model, the voltage difference meant it took around 40 minutes to heat up, instead of the suggested 20 minutes. There is a red light on the wax wand, indicating there is power to the unit, but a light (perhaps green) indicating the wax is to temperature would be a welcome addition. Included also in the kit are 12 wax strips, which can each be used several times, and 4 wax-removing wipes.
The wax itself is a bright coral-pink, quite a nice colour, but I found that as my skin becomes very red upon waxing, it became difficult to see where any waxy residue was left on my skin! The wax wipes were successful at removing any excess wax, but any oil will do just as well if you run out of wipes. The wax strips can be reused several times, once one side becomes full of wax, simply fold the strip in half, and the unused side of the now shorter strip can be used.
I found it most effective to roll the wax wand up my leg, against the grain of my hair growth, applying a quantity of wax slightly shorter in length than the strip used to remove it. The EasyWax delivers a thin layer of wax, it is important to get the roller moving first, because it is somewhat stiff the first time you try to roll it upon your skin. When the wax wand was unplugged, the wax cooled quickly, so I kept it plugged in most of the time, although this got a bit awkward, I sometimes found myself in a messy tangle of legs, wax and cord! After applying the wax and quickly removing the strip with a firm rip, I found around 70% of the hair was removed from my legs. Not as good as a salon wax of course, but for an at-home product, I think this is the best you would get.
Compared to other home waxing systems, this is certainly the most effective I have ever used. The main advantage is the lack of mess compared to traditional at-home waxing systems, and the fact that the wax doesn’t get too hot, so there is no burned skin. I am interested to try the wax cartridge with the smaller head, designed for bikini and underarm waxing. The disadvantages are the lack of strips, only 12, there should be at least double that many, and I doubt that one cartridge would go as far as claimed on the packet. All in all, I don’t think it is worth the $40 price tag (and how much will the cartridges cost?) but I was happy to trial this product, and if the cartridges are a reasonable price, I will purchase them and gladly continue using my Veet EasyWax.

Veet EasyWax Electrical trial team
Good evening ladies.
Straight up, I am hairy, very hairy. I inherited my hairness from my dad that is about as hairy as an ape. I am sadly not even joking.
Moving on. This is a pretty good product. I usually shave or when I do wax, I use wax strips. The EasyWax kit is pleasant looking pink product that is easy to hold.
It took 40+ minutes to heat up, that didn't phase me, I just did other stuff around the house while it warmed up. Oh and the night before I used this I used a body scrub on my legs because it makes them feel smoother and I don't get itchy legs when the hair starts to grow back.
The wax needs to be rolled onto the skin, and it comes out cleanly and thinly (and is a pretty pink colour!) and then you need to put a strip over the wax and rip it off in the opposite direction to hair growth. I did have some little patches of wax left on my skin but that came off with a bit of baby oil.
The only thing negative I have to comment on is that it would be great to have heaps more strips included in the kit.

just like in a salon!
First of all, thanks BH for letting me be a part of the trial team.
This comes in a pink and white box with the waxing device showing. The device also had a base for it to stand in and a cord, the device itself was very easy to hold, reminded me of the shape of an epilator. It also came with one wax cartridge, after wax wipes and wax strips.
I let the wax cartridge heat up in the device for 40 mins, I didn't mind because in that time I exfoliated and did other things. Once the wax was heated up; I rolled on the wax from knee to toe as directed on the instructions, the layer of wax was thin and even. After rolling on wax, I put the device back on the base, grabbed a wax strip. Firmly ran up and down with the palm of my hand over the wax strip a few times, and pulled the wax strip off. I found that because I didn't have to apply the wax with a stick, this roll on was great because it was just so even and simple ! There aren't many wax strips that come with the pack but what I did was use one strip, then another, by the time I was done with the second, the wax on the first would be dry so I could use that strip again which is great. I even used the back of used wax strips! After waxing both legs, I had used 5 strips so I still have some left for my next session.
The wax itself doesn't have much of an odour which is great, consistency was also amazing. After waxing, I used one of the after wax wipes which made my legs feel amazing. I didn't have any wax residue because it comes off with the strips so easily! It's been three days since I've waxed and they're still smooth! I will definitely purchase the roll on applicator wax cartridge for underarms as this applicator is way too big for that, I can imagine it getting very messy so I didn't try.
All in all, great product. Will continue to use. Thanks BH!
