Aye peeps! How are you all doing? ? I’m not keeping well since few days but slowly recovering now. 🙂 Today I’m going to share with you my take on Veet hair removal cream silk & fresh for sensitive skin. I have been using this hair removal cream for a while now. Veet hair removal creams come in different formulations, so there are a lot of options to choose from for different skin types and needs. Other creams are available for- normal skin, dry skin, skin brightening for all: normal, dry and sensitive skin type; and then one with papaya extracts. As my skin is sensitive and it was my first time using Veet hair removal cream, I picked the one which is for sensitive skin type. This one which I have here is the smallest tube which is perfect for trail purpose. Hop in to know more!
Veet hair removal cream silk & fresh for sensitive skin Experience
The Veet hair removal cream comes packed in a box containing a tube, leaflet and a cute pink colored spatula. All the important details are mentioned on both the tube and the box. The leaflet contains a small information about other Veet hair removal creams and direction to use in different languages.
The tube is opaque white and has white colored screw cap which closes tight. The packaging looks very neat and travel friendly!
The cream itself is white in color and a bit thick in consistency but applies smoothly on the skin. The fragrance is a mix of chemical and pleasant. It can bother some sensitive noses but fret not since it’s very mild.
This cute pink colored spatula is made up of plastic. And the edges are not too sharp and not too gentle, just perfect to glide on the skin to remove the cream and hairs. I use the back of the spatula to apply the cream. And the inward curved side of the spatula to remove the cream and hairs. (Obviously!)
Let me share with you that I’m a shaving person. But I do use other hair removal methods when I feel a bit fancy! Lately I noticed that some hairs around my knuckles are not removed while shaving. Since I feel a bit difficulty in gliding the razor around my knuckles. So every time some hairs are left behind around my knuckles, which bothers me a lot! So I thought why not remove them with a hair removal cream? This is how I stumbled upon Veet hair removal cream silk & fresh for sensitive skin type. For demonstration purpose, I have provided the picture below of the application on the back of my hand.
First thing to do before using any hair removal cream is to read the information provided. So on my first application, after reading the usage direction I applied the cream on the back of my hand and on my fingers. (Wherever I could see hairs.) This wasn’t my very first application though, I have done a small patch test on my leg before. Now the hairs on my leg, especially below my knees are bit thick in nature. So when I used this cream it was a bit difficult for the cream to burn the thick hairs. Therefore, I had to use a very thick layer. Incase if you have thick hairs and planning to use a hair removal cream, well it’s going to be a bit more of a work for you! I would suggest you to use a thick layer of the cream.
I wasn’t bothered much that it did not remove all the hairs from my legs because that wasn’t the problem area for me. The problem was the back of my hand, i.e, the area around my knuckles and the wrist joint- where I have a bone protruding, which makes gliding a razor bit difficult for me.
The important point to note is that the waiting time shouldn’t exceed above 5 minutes. Because after that I feel a mild burning sensation which might have caused redness and irritation. Glad that it didn’t! So after 5 minutes with the help of the spatula I tested if the hairs can be removed or not. With the sliding of the spatula I could see some hairs coming off along with the cream. Only then I move ahead to glide the spatula and remove all the cream. This reminds me a lot of shaving. Hence the procedure is easy to be done and beginner friendly!
But I would strictly warn you not to try this on groin area, face or any other area except arms and legs. Yes it claims that it can be used on armpits as well. But if you have thicker hairs or as the area of the under arms is sensitive, it can cause irritation and skin darkening (with regular use) as well.
I’m not sure if you could see hairs on the back of my hand as they grow thin on my arms. Take a closer look! 😀
Once all the cream is swiped off by the spatula I go ahead and rinse my hands with normal tap water. The result is mind boggling! The back of hands appeared brighter than before and the skin turned very smooth and soft! Of Course the hairs had vanished. Let me tell you, I take my time and sit down to inspect the area if any hair was left behind. Each time I use this hair removal cream I cannot spot a hair! Also keep in mind they were thin hence weak. There is no after smell, since it claims that there won’t be any lingering malodour.
In Spite of stingy sensation because I had exceeded 5 minutes, I did not notice any inflamed skin. My hands felt supple and hydrated. Therefore, I completely agree with the moisturization effect. It claims to provide 24 hours moisture, and my hand did feel hydrated and soft for that long. I did not feel the need to apply my regular hand cream.
How long does it take for the hair to grow back after using- Veet hair removal cream silk & fresh for sensitive skin ?
For me the result lasts more when compared to shaving. I usually shave my arms once in every two weeks. As of now I’m only using Veet hair removal cream silk & fresh for sensitive skin to remove hairs from the back of my hands. And comparing shaved area with the cream used area, the cream used area takes a little longer to sprout the exact length hairs.
