I've never waxed anything besides my eyebrows and lip and I always have those professionally done so it was iteresting to see how these would work. I actually cut one of the strips in half and used it on my jawline and was extremly pleased with the results on my face. It was just as good as a professional wax (I have thinner/finer hair on my face). I did try them on a section on my legs and the results weren't AS good, but still happy with the results. I have more coarse hair on my legs and I know it is best to have it grown out a bit before waxing so that could have been a little bit of the missed hair issue.

There was some residue left over but I didn't think it to be any worse than what it would be at the salon. Even there, they have to wipe away residue with a bit of oil.

I tried this under my arms. And, it removed half of my hair on the first attempt. Took another attempt to completely remove all underarm hair. I was surprised this really didn't hurt that much, because I've never waxed my underarms until now.

Here's the BIG ISSUE: It leaves a lot of sticky residue on your skin. I mean, a lot! My underarms were so sticky, it pulled my skin when I raised my arms. It didn't hurt. But, my armpits were just sticky!!!!

The box says to clean any residue with Veet "Perfect Finish Wipes." Well, try to find some! They do not sell them on Drugstore.com com or anywhere else on-line either. Of course that did me no good at the present moment my armpits were all stuck. LOL!

What did I use? I went and got some "Goo Gone" that I had in the kitchen that I use to remove sticky labels etc. That worked pretty good. And, it did not sting my armpits since it's all organic and no chemical. I have no clue how that would be on one's face however. Hmmm?

I tried using my Ponds makeup remover pads, but they didn't do the job.

Oh, I might also mention....make sure you have no nailpolish on when you use these. My fingers were totally sticky and I had to use nailpolish remover to clean them off with...thus removing my nailpolish too.

So I gave it 3 stars. It does work, but the sticky residue it leaves on your skin is an annoyance.

Comments about Veet Ready to Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 40 strips:

I absolutely loathe my dark underarm hair so for the past year I've been waxing it. This is the best thing I've come across so far. The strips are super easy to use, and virtually painless when removed. Generally I don't really even need to clean off any sticky residue. The only down side is that occasionally they do miss a couple hairs but I'm pretty sure that's just b/c I'm impatient and don't want to wait for the hair to get long enough before re-waxing.

I loved this stuff. It hurt less than I expected. I didn't quite get all the hair, but close enough that it didn't matter. I used baby oil on the wax afterwards and it came right off.

    Comments about Veet Ready to Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 40 strips:

    This is my first time waxing, I've never even done it professionally and I am so happy with the results! I followed the directions, and had no problem with messy-ness. I used it on stubbly hair and I was surprised that it grabbed even the smalled of hairs, I didn't have to go over any areas a second time. The first leg I did had redness and bumps, but once I got the hang of it I didn't experience any redness or bumps. They also recommend to press down on the skin if you have redness. By the morning all redness and bumps were gone, and my skin was baby smooth. I will definitely be purchasing again. I also noticed the quicker I did it the less painful it was.

    Comments about Veet Ready to Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 40 strips:

    These were disappointing. I know people who love them, so I wonder why are they not working for me? I followed the directions exactly, and these strips maybe pulled out 20 percent of the hair on my legs, and it was broken at the skin not pulled from the root. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate it. I bought multiple boxes and I would hate to have to return them. They just didn't work for me. I have fine hair and waxing is usually easy for me. This product made it difficult.

      Comments about Veet Ready to Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 40 strips:

      I've been using Veet wax strips for over 4 years now, and every time I use it I am so GLAD I've found them. It takes a little time to learn how to use them the right way - warm them up as much as you can, peel, apply, press against the skin all over the strip and pull as fast as possible. And reuse the same strip right after again and again as long as it works - pulls out the hair. I usually use one half of the strip on one leg)half) and other side of the strip on the other leg. And i do not have to wax for 2-3 weeks!!!! While i have to shave every other day if i use razors! And within couple of months hair do not grow so fast and they are much lighter and thinner, which is why i love this product sooo much. In summer i use this strips once or twice a month, and my legs are so smooth. Now after so many years of using Veet I can tell for sure it does work great, it a little sticky , but easy to clen up. I do not consider stickiness a problem when results are so good. Sometimes i do shave my legs, but shaving boosts hair growth, when these strips totally kills it!

      Try it, but let your hair first grow out a little and i hope it works for you too!

      Went to pros once and never again! This product is painless, easy to use, the moisturizer works well. I seem to notice over time my leg hair especially is getting finer.

      I really won't use another product.

      This product is easy and quick to use. However, it does miss quite a bit of the hair, even when done in the same area more than once.

      It's the best home-use product I've ever tried.

        Comments about Veet Ready to Use Hair Removal Wax Strips, Legs & Body, 40 strips:

        I didn't have problem with residual stickiness (well a little, but it didn't really bother me). My issue was the strips missed many hairs. I had to use 1 strip on each leg. And even then, there were many hairs missed. It didn't get shorter hairs at all. But on the flip side, it didn't hurt near as much as I thought it would! Much less painful than an epilator. However, shaving still works better. But this is a good option if you don't have time to shower/bathe.

          These are awesome. They work really well and the mess associated with waxing is all but eliminated. You heat them up by rubbing the strips between your hand, apply and pull. That's it. No microwave, no spatula. It's awesome. I use them for my legs and they're also good for your face, just cut the big strip into a 1" wide strip and do the same rub, apply, pull. So cost effective too!
