I am a lazy person when it comes to shaving so thank god for these type of products. I have previously used nair and didn't have good results and ended up hurting my skin from some sort of reaction to it so I was skeptical when I purchased it. After I slathered it on my legs I waited a few minutes and hopped in the shower. I washed my hair and all that while the Veet was still on my legs and was surprised that it hadn't washed off. I used the brush thing that came with it and got the rest of the cream off in no time at all. My legs were soft and the hair stayed gone longer than when I shave and my legs were not as dry. This was a lot easier than shaving and I do this on a regular basis now. The only downside is that it is a bit smelly but nothing that would make you gag while using it. Effectiveness Removes all the hair and in a quick time with little effort. Scent I have two different types of Veet and this one does not have a very good smell. It's not the worst but still stinky.
