so it really doesn't last that long then?? oh dear :p:
i was originally gonna get the veet bikini line waxing strips but my mum bought this one by mistake. i'll see how it turns out, and tell you all if you want
probably depends on the individual, my hair always seems to grow back ridiculously fast.

olivia22, did you use the cream? if the back of yr knees are really painful, that's probably an indication that you shouldn't use it again. take an antihistamine to try and relieve it? x

I used the aerosol thats advertised with the bladeless razor thing. You're probably right that I shouldn't use it again. Stick to shaving next time me thinks!!

Is it true that veet (aka immac) might be carcinogenic (might cause cancers)??? I'm considering using it as shaving is such a pain, anybody use it, know anything about it?
dont think so- its not absorbed into the skin and is only on there for a short time.

if u scared try SUGARING like waxing but make of sugar sticky stuff all natuala

I use it now and again too; it works fine for me but I don't think it's very good for really sensitive skin. To be honest if you started to worry too much about carcinogens then you'd probably end up not leaving the house :rolleyes:
For really gorgeous natural products try http://www.lush.com
They don't do hair removal creams but their products are truly excellent (and the do a fab shaving cream btw..) x

Lush is fab!!!!!!!!!!

If you have non stick teflon pans they give off poisonous gases if burnt. They can kill birds so I imagine they'd be nasty to humans too
