IT's Friday - and I'm BACK!

I've been taking a bit of a break with the Frump fighting. Ever since I discovered that I weigh "Hmmm hmmm" pounds, I've been feeling frumpier than ever. That process is going slow - My weight has been a little up and down, and I've been discouraged and depressed, but I'm still working on eating healthier, and cutting back on serving sizes.

Exercise?? That's a whole different animule...

I know that weight loss is a painfully slow and frustrating process, so I'm not going to let it get me down. Logically, I know that I cannot expect overnight results, but I've never been so good with the patience. However, I spent a little time this morning re-visiting a few of my fellow Fight the Frump-ers, and I've got a few ideas for getting back on track.

But, that is not what I was planning to discuss today. Today, I'm going to tell you about a lovely little product I discovered recently, which I will never again be without.

It started with a post from one of the lovely Frump-fighters I found through the Fabulous Mrs. Fussypants. I truly wish I could remember which one (I(f you happen to read this, let me know - I would love to link to your post!!). I looked through a zillion old FtF posts this morning, so that I could give credit where credit is due, and provide a little Linky Love, but after 30 minutes, I gave up...

Anyway, she (this mystery woman - hopefully to be named later) was talking about her favorite hair removal method. Which was a Sally Hansen waxing product. Now, I lurves me some Sally Hansen, and the mystery woman made this product sound so great that I went to my local store (rhymes with Tall-Heart) at lunch to check it out. But when I got there, I just couldn't bring myself to do the waxing thing (and now that I've had my brows done, I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't have been able to pull it off go through with it myself.

So, instead I saw this lovely little product:

VEET® In-Shower Hair Removal Cream. I saw that it took 3 minutes, before you hopped in the shower to scrub it off with the little included sponge. Sold!! I tried it and LOVED the results, but it was a rather small container, and I used it up rather quickly.

So back to the store I went, and this time, I picked up this:

VEET® Hair Removal Gel Cream Pump. It's a bigger bottle, for not much more money than the in-Shower product. It takes just a little bit longer (3-5 minutes), and it doesn't have the nifty little sponge, but it does come with a Perfect Touch Spatula, which I couldn't find a picture of, (and I'm sure my description won't do it justice) but it's a wavy plastic "razor-type-thingy", which helps with the hair removal process. Of course, I love this product, too!! And I'm sure that if I were to get one of the other VEET® cream products, that I would love it as well. But, for now, I'm going to stick with this one, I prefer the larger size.

Both have a surprisingly pleasant smell (not quite as "chemical" as the OTHER products I have tried over the years), and it worked great to remove the hair. I used it on my legs and bikini area with no problem (Just make sure you don't actually put it IN anything - not sure what that would do for your girly-parts). If I missed any spots in the shower, (I do that sometimes-the main reason I hate shaving) the hair just comes right off with no problem. I have not had any problems with burning or reactions, but if your worried, I recommend testing it before you go all out and slather yourself. (Although I did not do this first)

So, if you're in the market for a new hair-removal product, I highly reccommend VEET®

Don't forget to head on over to Fussy's place for more Fight the Frump participants.

And don't forget to join us in flaunting our mediocrity!!
(Not that I'm saying you're mediocre...)

3 minutes! I'm sold. It takes that long to shave. The last time I tried hair remover it took 15 minutes...that was 15 yrs ago. Time to give it another go. Thx!

No need to describe the plastic thingy--I know exactly what it looks like I believe it is featured in the TV ads. I may give this a try--especially if it doesn't smell bad! LOL

I've looked at this product in the past and given it some thought, for I hate shaving and finding I missed a spot, all that. You've sold me! I have to go to Tall Heart today, so I'm going hunting for it!

I've never used hair removal stuff. Well, besides razors of course. But ya got me thinkin'.

I have not tried a hair removal system (other than my handy dandy razor) since high schol which was back in 19mumblemumble.

I think it was Nair and it DID NOT WORK.

I've been hearing more and more about this. I'm definitely going to give it a try since by the end of the summer I get razor burn. OUCH.

When both of my daughters decided that they wanted to shave, I got them this stuff. We actually liked it.

I tried one of those removers years ago. But, I think you may have convinced me to give it another shot. Thanks for sharing!

Carrott said...

Glad this works for someone...the friends I have asked haven't liked it, but I am gonna have to try it for myself. Thanks!

I have never tried this before but I think I will!!! :)

Connie said...

That sounds fabulous!!

I'm going to give it a try....I can no longer go around with my horrible ape legs that injure my children when they touch them!

I just got home from Walmart with my VEET. I got the first picture.

I just read the putting on dedorant for 24 hours after you use it? No applying where you have a mole?
