Hair Removal Cream Review and Comparison: Nair Vs Veet

Hi, ladies! It's been a while. I have been very busy this month, but anyways I'm back with a review and comparison about Nair and Veet. Both are hair removal cream products which I have been using this year. The ones that I will be talking about are Nair Pretty in soft raspberry and Veet in lotus milk and jasmine for normal skin. I purchased them at Watsons. I forgot the exact price, but Nair (150ml) is around IDR 80.000 whereas Veet (60g) is only around IDR 25.000.

Veet comes in three variants which are for dry skin, normal skin, and sensitive skin. The instruction booklet and the green spatula which come with the packaging are very useful. I have the normal skin version, and it smells like a toothpaste, kind of refreshing. To apply this product, you just have to squeeze the tube and spread the cream on the green spatula. After that, spread the cream thickly on your underarms using the spatula. Do not rub it. You have to be careful because it can be messy. Make sure all the hair on your underarms are covered with the cream. After 3 minutes, you can remove the cream using the spatula. It's just like shaving. Remember, do not exceed 6 minutes, unless you want to get burned. lol Well in fact, I got burned several times using this :s Lastly, rinse your underarms with water. Do not rub too hard.

What I like from Veet is that it works really fast. It only needs 3 minutes. However, it leaves prominent stubble, and I hate stubble. If I leave it longer, not exceeding 6 minutes, my skin gets burned. How annoying! Another thing is that the refreshing smell starts to change into an unpleasant and disgusting smell after several months. Veet gives a warning that the product expires after 24 months since the date of production. Mine is March 2011, so it should be expired in March 2013. But the smell has changed since three months ago, so I can never use it anymore. I really can't stand the disgusting odor it produces. It makes me want to throw up :(

Compared to Veet, I personally think that Nair is safer and more pleasant although it takes longer to remove the hair. It takes me 8 minutes, the maximum time is 10 minutes. It leaves less stubble, so the skin surface of my underarms are smoother. It smells raspberry, and it still smells the same even after a year. The expiry date of the product is printed on the packaging. Mine will be expired on December 2013. I apply this product just like the way I apply Veet. The difference is on the removal of the cream. To remove this product, I have to use a damp washcloth and rub it slowly on my underarms until all the hair is gone. After that, I rinse my underarms with water. Oh, and I never get burned when using this :) Nair also has the sensitive skin version, but I have never tried it.

Overall, I am quite pleased with Nair and quite disappointed with Veet. I will only repurchase Nair because it suits my skin better than Veet. Remember that we have different skin, so what works for me does not always work for you and the other way around :)
Well then this is the end of the post. I hope it helps. See ya and stay pretty!


  1. is it ok for us to remove our hair in over body? aku takut kalo tumbuhnya lebih banyak :)

    1. Hi, Susan :) aku lebih suggest Nair kalo km mau remove yg di tangan, kaki, ketiak bahkan bikini area. jangan pake di wajah loh. hhe soalnya nair lebih smooth hasilnya. tumbuhnya ga lebih banyak koq. tenang aja. hhe

  2. both men and women have tried various methods to remove unwanted hair from the body. These methods have included shaving, waxing, electrolysis and the use of depilatory creams. The problem has been that each of these methods produce various degrees of success and each has its own associated set of problems. All About Youth produce long-lasting hair removal in a faster manner than electrolysis.
