Getting to the Root of Hair Removal

Hair removal can be maddening. We’ve all been there: it’s quarter past six, you’ve got a date at seven, and you look down and see those tiny hairs on your legs. You don’t want to step outside your door. You need to get rid of those hairs, and fast. There are a number of ways to rid yourself of those pesky hairs, such as: shaving, waxing, and creams. Yet the method you choose depends on your budget, your pain threshold, and your time limit! Let’s have a look at the most popular techniques - you might just discover some new tricks.


Shaving is the quickest method of hair elimination. It involves removing hair from the body by cutting it off close to the skin with a razor. Although quick and easy, shaving can lead to uncomfortable hairs and cuts. If you’re someone who often finds themselves in a rush, and resorting to shaving, then it might be an idea to think about some of the other methods, as they can be just as speedy in a pinch!


Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal that takes out the hair from the root. Although easy, popping into a beauty salon for a wax can be costly and time-consuming. The alternative is to wax in the comfort and privacy of your own home, something that won’t take long at all, and can be relied on to get you out of a hairy situation! Veet offer a range of easy-to-use wax strips and warm waxes that can all be used at home. Our EasyWax™ Electrical Roll-On Kit can give you fantastic results, right when you need them, rather than having to wait to get to a salon.

Depilatory Creams

For those worried about discomfort, using depilatory creams are a painless way of removing hair. You simply leave the cream on for a few minutes and the hair slides right off. Veet cream dissolves the hair at the root, so that the hair breaks away, keeping you stubble-free for up to four days. Veet has an extensive range of creams to suit your every need. You could use one of our creams, formulated for sensitive skin, or if you’re really in a hurry, we have a spray-on cream that can be an efficient time-saver.

Regardless of the situation, be it the perfect opportunity to wear that sleeveless dress, or a last minute swim (we do not recommend swimming after using Veet for 24 hours) – there is a hair removal solution for you. Some methods are quick but can cause irritation. Others are more time-consuming but have longer-lasting results. Different approaches suit different people but whatever method you opt for, Veet have the tools to help leave your skin feeling soft and smooth to the touch.
