1. Before you start
Cleanse the area where you wish to depilate with a soap and warm water. Then dry it thoroughly. The area to be waxed must be clean, dry, and free of creams or cosmetics.
“With the lid tightly in place, place the tube of wax into a cup of hot tap water as shown in the diagram. Leave in for 1 minute to warm the wax. Remove the tube and dry thoroughly.
If the wax is difficult to get out of the tube, replace the lid tightly. Place the tube back in the hot water for a further 1 minute to allow the wax to warm up more and achieve the right consistency.”
It is important that the wax does not come into contact with water as it becomes ineffective.
2. How to apply veet facial wax strips
Only a thin layer of wax must be applied to effectively remove hair.
Remove the cap from the tube. Test the temperature and flow of the wax by spreading a small amount onto the back of your hand.
Squeeze the tube until a small bead of wax appears on the tip – only a small amount is needed. If wax is applied too thickly the hair removal will not be effective.
Using the bevelled tip spread the wax onto the area you want to depilate, in the direction of hair growth.
Immediately place a fabric strip over the wax, smoothing it on in the direction of the hair growth. Smooth the strip 2-3 times to help the wax grip the hair. Leave at least 1 cm at the end of the strip wax-free so that you can grip the strip when removing.
“Hold the skin taut and swiftly remove the strip in the opposite direction of hair growth keeping the strip as parallel as possible to the skin.
If you end up applying too much wax, or apply wax where you do not wish to remove hair, simply wash off with water and thoroughly dry the area before reapplying the wax.”
Cut the strip in a curve to adapt it to the eyebrow shape.
Separate hair to be removed using an eyebrow comb or the precision spatula.
Start applying the wax beginning from the inner part of the eyebrow. Following the natural brow line move toward the end of the eyebrow. For a more precise application use the precision stick.
Apply the strip and press firmly. Hold the skin taut while pulling the strips in the direction of the nose. Repeat on the other eyebrow.
Treat each side of your lip (left and right) separately.
Use the bevelled tip to spread the wax starting from the centre of the upper lip in the direction of hair growth.
Apply the strip and press firmly. Hold the skin taut while pulling the strips in the direction towards the centre of the upper lip. Repeat on the other side of the upper lip.
Before applying the wax determine the direction of hair growth.
Apply the wax in the direction of hair growth in small areas at a time.
Apply the strip and press firmly.
Hold the skin taut while pulling the strips in the opposite direction of hair growth.
3. After Waxing
Simply wash off any residues with water.
After use, rinse the used strips with water and dry them so they can be re-used for the next hair removal session.
Rinse the stick with warm water and allow to dry before putting it back into the box.
Using a damp cloth remove the excess wax from the edges of the tube before closing it.
Please note: it is important that the wax does not come into contact with water as it becomes ineffective.
