Last Minute 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 before this prickly issue is resolved, and fast!  There are a number of ways you can get rid of those annoying hairs yourself, 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 painful ingrown hairs and cuts. If you’re someone who often finds themselves in a rush, and resort 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 epilation, meaning it takes out the hair from the root. The results of epilation are more long-lasting than other methods such as shaving and creams, which work by cutting the hair rather than removing it completely. 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, so there is no need to go to a salon.

Also the Veet Spawax is an effective stripless waxing method giving you professional waxing in the comfort of your own home.

Depilatory Creams

For those worried about discomfort, using depilatory creams is a completely pain-free way of removing hair. You simply leave the cream on for a few minutes and the hairs remove. 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 needs.
