Product Overview

The Veet Gel Cream hair remover (sensitive formula) is specifically targeted at women and comes in an easy to use, generous, 13.5 fl. oz (400g) capacity pump dispenser bottle with a spatula for easy application and hair removal.

The Veet Gel hair remover cream sensitive formula, (not to be confused with the “with the essential oil” version) is made for removing hair from the body and great for women who have very sensitive skin.

From one of the best known Brands in the sector, this hair removal cream is just one in a large range of Veet Hair Removal Products

If you are a woman and you are looking to remove hair from the back, arms, underarms, legs or bikini line and you have sensitive skin, this cream is one of the best hair removal creams for sensitive skin on the market that you could buy.

Although the Veet Gel Hair Remover Cream is specifically targeted at women by the manufacturer, it can be used whether you are male or female, however because men do tend to have coarser hair… this cream might not be quite effective with the male users.

However, the Veet Gel Cream Hair Remover (Sensitive Formula) has recently become very popular with men around the world too

Although this hair removal cream is for sensitive skin, If you are looking for a hair removal cream for the face, You will be better off looking for a hair removal cream created specifically for the face. The Veet Gel Cream Hair Remover (Sensitive Formula) will not be suitable for the face as this particular product is mainly for the body area and as such must be kept away from the facial area.

Facial hair removal creams contain less harsh chemicals because of the sensitive nature of the skin on the face. Using hair removal creams specifically created for the body area on the face are likely to cause chemical burns because of the chemical content.

Veet does however also produce a 2 step facial hair removal kit specifically for the face which incidentally is also on our best facial hair removal creams for women.

What Is It Made Of?

Below is a list of the ingredients used in the manufacture of the Veet gel cream hair remover product.

Like most hair removal products, the manufacturer does not list the quantity of any of the ingredients contained within the product, however this hair removal cream does contain Potassium Trioglycolate which is a very effective chemical that attacks and dissolves hair found in most powerful hair removal creams.

Ingredients: Veet Gel Cream (Sensitive Formula) Hair Remover

Water, Urea, Mineral Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Potassium Thioglycolate, Calcium Hydroxide, Talc, Ceteareth-20, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Fragrance, Magnesium Trisilicate, Propylene Glycol, Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate, Sodium Gluconate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Acrylates Copolymer, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Titanium Dioxide.

The Veet Gel Hair Remover Cream, Sensitive Formula is also infused with natural emollients such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. These special ingredients are known to care for your skin, helping to restore and enrich the body’s hydration level and leaving your skin feeling moisturized, silky and soft, for up to 24 hours after the hair removal process.

Performance

Depilatory creams are generally very subjective and reviews for this product like so many other hair removal creams are varied…. however there is a lot of user reviews and reports to suggest that the Veet Gel Cream hair remover (sensitive formula) is one of the the best hair removal cream for sensitive skin on the market today.

It is quick-acting, and depending on hair density takes just about 5 minutes to start seeing the difference.

Dermatologist-tested, it works better than shaving without the risk of nicks and bumps. And since this penetrates the skin to break down the hair’s protein, the result is a much smoother skin.

This cream offers great results that can last for 5 days up to a week. The Skin really feels smooth after rinsing the product off, but it may require some scrubbing to completely take it off.

Apart from being able to use this specially designed hair removal cream on sensitive areas like the bikini line, It is reported as being very effective at removing fine hair from the back, arms, underarms and legs too especially if you have sensitive skin. (see user reviews)

It does however appear not to be as effective when used on coarse hair…so if you are the type that has coarse hair, you might want to look other hair removal creams that are best for coarse hair.

If you have coarse hair, you might want to VEET Fast-Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover with Essential Oils, which is suitable for normal to dry skin and contains essential oils with a delicate rose scent.

Unlike most depilatory products, the hair removal cream is also infused with fragrance which to a certain extent helps get rid of the lingering scent.

The Veet Gel hair remover cream (sensitive formula) also makes the list of the “best hair removal cream for men” for one simple reason… the product has been reported as one of the best hair removal creams to use for pubic region removal whether you are male or female.(see customer reviews)

Ease Of Use:

This product comes in an easy to use dispenser bottle with a pump. The pump makes it much easier to use the cream as you don’t need a second hand to operate the pump. This makes the application easier and mess-free.

The downside to pump though… is if you get one with a faulty pump… It might be messy getting the cream out and also as you near the end of use of a pumped dispenser… not all the cream will you be able to get out with the pump…. You might have to remove the pump to get at the remaining cream in the bottle which you can scrape out with a long thin teaspoon if that occurs…

Not many of these cases have been reported by the users which might indicate the quality of the pumps that are shipped with the Veet Gel Cream Hair Remover plastic bottle dispensers.

Included with the dispenser bottle is also a plastic spatula which means you can apply the cream without getting the cream on your hands making the whole process a gentle yet effective hair removal process.

The Veet Gel hair remover cream (sensitive formula) cream is also very easy to apply and remove and most importantly it does the job of hair removal pretty well.

Depilatories are usually off putting because of the very foul odor associated with the old depilatory products in the past… There has been an attempt to camouflage the odor by the manufacturer of this particular product with limited success;

As such, the odor of the Veet Gel hair remover cream is not particularly pleasant but it is not overwhelming and anyway the odor is only of a temporary nature and not lingering.

Using The Veet Gel Cream Is Easy…

You simply use the curved part of the spatula, to spread the Veet Cream evenly to fully coat the skin.

Once you apply the cream to your skin, you leave the cream on your skin for 5 minutes. the chemicals in the cream dissolve your hair right below the surface of the skin,.

If your hair is more stubborn, you can leave the cream on for up to 10 minutes in total – but don’t leave it any longer.

You then use the spatula to gently remove a small test area of cream to see if the cream has done its magic. If the hair comes away easily, you can then use the wider or narrower end of the spatula depending on the body part, to remove the rest of the dissolved.

The light tube version (200g) which is half the size of the pump dispenser bottle retails for just under $6, which is also competitively priced and affordable.(check latest price)

If you want the best value for money though… You are better off buying the 13.5 fl.oz (400g) version with the pump dispenser bottle, which is only a few dollars more that the 200g tube version plus you get the spatula which does not come with the 200g tube version.

To further reduce your cost… you might want to buy about 3 of the hair removal creams at the same time… which would in most cases significantly reduce your postage cost especially if you are buying online.
