GET SALON- LIKE SMOOTHNESS IN 3 EASY STEPS Step 1: PEEL IT Start by carefully peeling the strip apart using the outward rounded tabs. SOME VITAL TIPS TO FOR A HASSLE-FREE EXPERIENCE The Dos : Before using the Veet Full Body Waxing Kit, ensure your skin is dry and non-irritated. Remember not to use any kind of creams or oils on your skin as well. Always pull back the wax strip against the direction of hair growth. You can re-use each strip unless it loses its stickiness. After hair removal massage the area gently using the perfect finish wipes to remove any residual wax. The Don’ts : Avoid using these strips on sunburnt or irritated skin. This product isn’t suitable for the elderly, diabetics or people taking oral retinoids. NO PAIN, ALL GAIN If you have extremely sensitive skin and not prefer waxing at all, then Veet has a solution for that as well. Say hello to the Veet Hair Removal Cream with Silk & Fresh Technology. This cream works close to the root of the hair, giving you long-lasting smoothness. It works its magic in all of 3 to 6 minutes—removing short, stubborn hair from legs, arms, underarms, and bikini line. It comes in three variants: Normal, Sensitive, and Dry, making it suitable for different skin types. Veet Hair Removal Cream is available for `30/15gm, 61/25gm, and `115/50gm. Step 2: APPLY IT Then, apply one strip to your skin, in the direction of the hair growth. Rub a few times in the direction your hair grows to ensure the wax adheres well to your skin. Step 3: PULL IT Hold your skin taut, grasp the tab and pull the strip back on itself as quickly as you can, against the direction the hair grows. Voilà!
