The thing about internet is that you know what’s going around. Being a beauty and fashion blogger, a lot of my online time is spent on drooling at those out of reach brands and products which our American counterparts love to flaunt! One such product was Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer for Women. I remember looking at the blog tutorials and reviews and wishing it was available in India. Well guess what..it now is! Veet recently launched this new beauty gadget in the Indian market and I am sure a lot of you are curious about how it works and if you should invest in it. Read the review to know about my experience with this hair removal trimmer.
Can I just say that the packaging is a blessing for girls like me who have long nails. You don’t have to fight with the cardboard box but just peel off the plastic to get the electric trimmer out.
Here are the contents of the box:
- Double sided precision head for eyebrows 16 and 6mm
- Bikini trimming head 20mm
- Comb attachments for both the heads
- Beauty cap
- Cleaning brush
- Beauty pouch
- AA battery
The veet beauty styler is sleek and light which ensures you have a better grasp on it while using. The product itself is white while the trimming combs are pink. What I love about the packaging is that you get everything in one place and its ready to be used.
Coming to the dual sided trimmer head for eyebrows and face. I use the 6mm side on my eyebrows, upper lips and chin for better precision and 16mm on my sideburns. Its very easy to use, just turn the handle to 1 and it starts. I will be honest that I was very nervous about using the veet electric trimmer on my eyebrows..what if I shave my brows off! What if I cut them!..but I am glad that I took the plunge.
The veet sensitive touch trimmer has made my life a lot easier. To trim off excess hair I use the comb attachment and hold it lightly over the hair. You don’t want to push the comb in too much, just keep it a light distance and brush away. It will shorten the length of your hair in a jiffy.
Then I remove the comb and use it to trim any stray hair around my brows. It hardly takes 2-3 mins. I used the same side on my upper lips and chin which takes about a minute as you don’t need a lot of precision there. For my sideburns I use the 16mm side which takes off all my peach fuzz!
For my bikini line and underarms, I use the bigger 20mm head. After using it, just clean it with the brush provided in the pack or you can also remove the attachments and wash them in water. For storage, they have provided a pouch.
I will be doing a detailed tutorial on how I use veet sensitive touch electric trimmer in my next post so don’t worry if you have any questions about the usage, I will answer them all in my next post. For now let me talk about the reasons I love this gadget so much:
Reasons You Should Buy Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer for Women:
Trust me girls, you don’t feel a thing. If you don’t like to wax or thread because of the pain then this is THE product for you. I have used epilators in the past and they used to hurt so bad. I remember buying this expensive face epilator with a dozen attachments but never got around to using it after my first experience. Why would anybody like to inflict that kind of pain by choice!And have you used those tiny hair removal springs which were a rage a few years back? I have and the experience was not so good. It might have worked for some but the pain was too much.
2. Handy while travelling:
This one is a no brainer. You can’t carry your parlour everywhere you go. Last month I was on a week long vacation where I had such bad eyebrow growth and this baby tamed it all. This has sorted all of my beauty emergencies. Its very compact and light, you just pop it in the pouch it comes with and carry it in your bag wherever you go. Its like your parlour on the go.
3. Ease of use:
A friend of mine recently moved to Australia and she has very thick eyebrow hair which a tweezer can’t work on. And there they don’t have salons which offer eyebrow threading. And the few Indian ladies who know how to thread charge a bomb! So I recommended this to her and it has made her life so much easier. You don’t have to depend on anybody to pluck or thread your brows. I recommend you to get your brows shaped once and then keep removing the stray hair with this. My eyebrows are thick and shaped and after getting this my salon visits have greatly reduced.
4. Touch ups:
Even if you argue that the good old threading is way better than any other method of facial hair removal, but you can still use it for quick touch ups before an important meeting or on occasions when you forget to visit your salon. A lot of times whatsapp groups turn into overnight party plans and you don’t want to say no just because you have upper lips! So its good to keep it for beauty emergencies and quick touch ups to make your life simpler.
