Introducing Veet Silk and Fresh™ hair removal cream

Whether it’s overgrown leg hair that you just haven’t got around to removing, bushy brows that need a bit of taming or an unruly bikini line, hair removal can be a pain in all aspects of the word.

Luckily, there are lots of different ways to get rid of any unwanted hair; although what works for one person might not work for another. Some people prefer to wax, while others might prefer a depilatory cream or using a razor.

Hair removal creams break down the structure of your hair and dissolve the keratin, leaving them weak. They should then fall loose from their follicle and you can simply wipe them away and the cream[1] using the spatula provided in the pack. They have many good points, although they also have some negatives - namely the smell.

Depilatory creams have a reputation for their bad smell. Having to scrub away at your skin afterwards and leave a window open to let some fresh air in makes this technique a lot less appealing.

Veet took this on board and have come up with a new and improved formula for our depilatory creams. The Veet Silk & Fresh™ Hair Removal Creams have been developed with new fragrance technology which means that there is no lingering smell during or after the hair removal process, making it a much more enjoyable experience. The aloe vera and Vitamin E in the cream for sensitive skin also work throughout to hydrate skin, keeping it soft and moisturised.

With its new and improved smell, Veet Silk & Fresh™ Hair Removal Cream is a great ‘at-home’ option. It is super easy and very quick to do! As with most depilatory creams, you simply apply the cream to the area of hair that you wish to remove with the little plastic spatula that comes with the product, wait for 5 – 10 minutes (for the Sensitive Formula; be sure to follow the instructions on the pack) and then wash it off with a wet cloth. Remember to always be sure to read the instructions and do a patch test 24 hours before use to avoid any unexpected allergic reaction.

Apart from this, using creams, has a lot of benefits too. Firstly, the results will last a little longer than shaving as the cream is able to remove the hair from just below the surface of the skin[2]. It’s a painless but still effective process, no risk of cuts or nicks from razor blades and no stinging from ripping out hair, making it a great option for those with a low tolerance for pain and perfect for sensitive areas such as underarms.

It is a great technique to use on underarms and other areas that aren’t just flat as you are able to spread it around the curves and contours of your body and leave it to get on with dissolving your hair. When it comes to removing the cream after it has worked its magic, whilst washing it off, you are actually exfoliating your skin at the same time. Removing any dead skin cells on the surface also helps towards getting your skin glowing!

With all these benefits on top of the new improved, fresh smelling formula, why not give hair removal cream a go and see the results for yourself.
