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've used this product for years. I am rather fair
    complected, but I have a lot of hair. I use the body/leg pack for all portions
    of my body. I just cut the strips to fit whatever part I'm waxing. I've
    probably used these most often on my upper lip, lower stomach, and bikini line.
    They are absolutely wonderful for the face. I never have to go back to catch
    strays, and there isn't any residue left behind. I use a full strip for each
    side of my bikini line, and where it bends around to be parallel to the ground,
    I usually end up with the wax left on me and the hair not caught. You sort of
    have to do it in segments if you have different facets. I've tried my arms
    before and it works perfectly, and I've done my underarms several times. This
    is also pretty successful but very painful, and I make sure the hair here is
    longer than I usually reserve to make sure it works. It hasn't worked well on my legs so I don't use them there. I've tried several at home hair removal methods, and this is my go-to because it is fast and effective and significantly less messy than tubs of wax.

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

      You can't expect salon quality from an item this inexpensive. For the price, I think it is worth getting more skilled at the waxing and save a little cash. I usually need to go back over the hair a few times, but it's not a hassle. The first time I used this, the hair broke at the surface, but now that I've gotten more practiced, I realize that was just operator error. The hairs are now always pulled at the root. If you are careful not to touch the wax to anything on its way to your skin, the cleanup is next to nothing. Just fold the used strip over on itself and toss in the garbage. Rub your skin with any kind of oil afterwards to remove residual wax. I use full strips on my lower legs and half strips on my underarms.

      These strips are really great if you don't want to pay salon prices. The wax heats easily and gets most of the hair. Before I start I put a dusting of baby powder on. I use baby oil afterwards to remove the residue.

        These are by far the best available wax strips on the market. I have tried several brands, icluding Sally Hansen and Nair, and I can confidently state that Veet is by far the best. It gets all the hair, leaving you with a salon-like finish. Perfect for buyers living on a budget.

          Veet is just ok. Sally Hansen was strips are much more effective if you'd like to pay almost twice. Veets has too much wax which leaves some mess and difficult to wash off. It doesn't also remove all the hair unless you use it one the same area 2-3 times.

              So instead of ripping off the hair this product ripped off the skin around the hair. I know waxing is a painful process but this stuff was more painful than it should be.

              Veet's Finish Wipes work well, but there are not enough of them, and they are on the small side to begin with. A bottle of mineral oil fills the bill.

              The peel-off layer of the product is nearly as effective as the product itself: the peel-off element works well enough that they are worth using to the budget-conscious user, if they don't mind covering areas twice-over.

                I have low pain tolerance, and this has to be the best wax strips for the price range.I even cut it into thin strips and use it on my face(but only after applying powder on the upper lip region).Those who have issues with stickiness or not enough hair being "gripped", I would suggest first dusting the area with a really thin layer of talcum powder and then using the strips.As for wax residue removal, baby oil works perfectly fine.I am yet to experience any burns/outbreaks etc.
