Hair Removal : Last Minute Hair Removal

Hair removal can be maddening. We’ve all been there: its 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 have time to step outside your door. You need to get rid of those hairs, and fast. There are a number of ways to rid yourself of those pesky hairs, such as: shaving, waxing, and creams. 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 resorting to shaving, then it might be an idea to think about some of the other methods, which can be just as speedy in a pinch!


Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal that takes out the hair from the root. Although it’s easy to pop into a beauty salon for a wax, it can be costly and time-consuming. The alternative is to wax in the comfort and privacy of your own home, which won’t take long at all, and can be relied on to get you out of a hairy situation! Veet® offers a range of easy-to-use wax strips and warm waxes that can all be used at home and lasts up to 4 weeks. Our Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On Kit can give you fantastic results right when you need them, rather than having to wait to get to a salon.

Depilatory Creams

For those worried about discomfort, using depilatory creams are a completely pain-free way of removing hair. You simply leave the cream on for a few minutes and the hair slides right off. Veet® cream dissolves the hair at the root, so that the hair breaks away, keeping you stubble-free for twice as long as shaving. Veet® has an extensive range of creams to suit your every need. You could use one of our creams, formulated for sensitive skin, to soothe or if you’re really in a hurry, we have a spray-on cream that can be an efficient time-saver.

Regardless of the situation –  be it the perfect opportunity to wear that sleeveless dress, or a last minute swim – there is a hair removal solution for you. Some methods are quick but can cause irritation. Others are more time-consuming but have longer-lasting results. Different approaches suit different people, but whatever method you opt for, Veet® has the tools to leave your skin feeling perfectly soft and smooth to the touch.
