It had been a while since I received a VoxBox from Influenster, so I was super excited to hear about being selected for the Veet Easy Wax Vox Box. I’m Italian and Greek, so hair has always been an issue for me. I was only 10 years old when I started shaving (not a pretty picture), and I’m an avid at-home brow waxer, so I was stoked. Smooth summery legs and not a lot of work to keep them that way? Sign me up.
Unfortunately, once I finally opened the package and plugged in, my star-studded expectations were tossed to the side. For me, the wax simply did not remove as much hair as I thought it would. I prepped for this immensely. Read: I did not shave for two weeks before using this product. My legs were right at the 1/2 inch guideline for wax success. I worked on my calf for half an hour to find that some parts of my legs were super smooth and the rest were still hairy. Thankfully, Keith is well aware of my blogging gig and rolled with the punches.
On my second attempt one day later, I let the wax sit and get hot for an hour (double the time it said it needed). Same results: patchy and unpleasant. I broke down and shaved my legs and got my woman-scaping done the old fashioned way.
I’m disappointed because I LOVE waxing my eyebrows and thought that leg waxing would (or should) be just as easy. The product itself is easy to set up, hold, and work with, but the results just aren’t cutting it for me. I would have liked the wax to get hotter (it has a self-guiding temperature gauge, which, while safe…doesn’t allow for much success), and I think the higher temperature would have yielded much better results. Â All’s well that ends well in the game of hair removal. While shaving every other day is a pain, I’m thinking that for now, that’s what this Mediterranean hairball must do for now!
