Veet for Men Wax Strips Review - Ouch

There’s a great episode of Scrubs where Elliot comes to the hospital with a wax strip stuck to her leg because she’s too afraid to remove it. I laughed at the time, but as I lay there on the bed last night with two wax strips stuck to my legs and Marie poised two inches away waiting to tear them off I couldn’t help but feel her pain.

And I mean really feel her pain….

Yes Veet for Men is finally here which means every man in the UK has no excuse for a hairy back, legs or underarms (although we can still have a hairy chest for now as you shouldn’t use the strips there). This worries me. You see before we could get away with being hairy and ape like purely on the basis that ”Waxing is girly”. Now on the other hand, Veet for ‘MEN’ says otherwise, and we all know once one man starts using it everyone else has to in order to not seem hairy by comparison.

Now as much as I’d love to just list the key points on the press release and end the review that’s not something I’m accustomed too. I always like to give every product here at Blagman a fair road test and that’s exactly what I decided to do. So I got Marie to peel off a wax strip and then stick it to my leg. As two of the strips come stuck together, I figured what the heck I’ll attach one to my other leg too. No turning back now…

As you can see the strips fit well and it’s easy to apply them, at least that’s what Marie told me as I was too busy waiting to see what would happen next. After the obligatory three second countdown off one of the strips came. If you’ve seen the movie ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ you’ll probably know what happened next. Honestly, I wanted to swear my head off, but trying to be a new-man I sat there calmly pretending to not feel a thing. Glad it was over I looked down at my other leg and remembered the second strip….

As the second lump of hair was tore from my skin it actually didn’t feel that bad. Looking down the amount of hair that had been removed was impressive and these things really do work. Standing back up again I looked in the bag from Veet and found another product “Hair Removal Gel Cream” which was a lot easier and a lot less painful! You simply apply the cream, leave it on a bit and then scrape off with the hair coming with it. It’s not as effective as good old-fashioned waxing but it’s a much safer place to start.

After v Before

As I said above once one man uses it then everyone will need to so I guess you could say the gauntlet has been well and truly set. So next time anyone say’s you’re looking a bit hairy you won’t have any excuse.

Veet for Men is available from all major supermarkets and pharmacies.

Can I give an advice? As a can see from the pictures your .. khm.. hairs are too long which is why it would hurt like hell the first time. First u have to shave them and when they grow up again and are about 4mm long - then use Veet. I promise you it won't hurt THAT much! ;)
Good luck!

That's good advice, although it still doesn't make the first time any less sore! Start young, repeat often perhaps?
