Just so you know, this post was supposed to go up much earlier but I thought I would get photos at the beach instead of stock standard in the house ones - please appreciate the fact that I took hair removal products to the beach and my friends laughed at me thinking I was actually going to use them. In the dead of winter, in public, when I wasn't even wearing a bathing suit to begin with. Moving on.
Veet is always going to hold a special place in my heart - it was how I first got all that luscious hair off my legs at the ripe age of...okay, I'm probably not going to get into that detail because it involved an embarrassing encounter with a boy. In gym class. And you know how easily girls are mortified. I look back at it now and just laugh thinking how it all changes when you get older and you just can't be bothered with hair removal half the time anyway. Still, I won't share details of the event that caused me to go home and wail at my mother.
Oh teenage years, they're so heightened.
Thankfully, my mother's best friend had already gone through a similar ordeal with her daughter and so they swapped stories and that's how I ended up getting to use Veet to feel much better about myself in gym class. And let me tell you, Veet products have REALLY come a long way since I first started using them! It's kind of neat, being a part of their progression in a way...not that they were ever aware of my existence. One sided love, another bane of a teenager's existence.
Interestingly enough, all of the products I got sent were all new to me seeing as I'm only familiar with their depilatory creams as that's what I know and what works for me. The concept of the products weren't as I've tried other brands before but at the end of the day I'm quite brand loyal and Veet has always worked for me best - one sided love and all - so I was interested in trying their versions.
And also wondering why it has taken me so long to. In case you're wondering, one word: wax. I'm a bit of a hummingbird when it comes to waxing; I simply flitter away as fast as I can. Seriously, you have to question what kind of state of mind one has to get into in order to go through the process of waxing.
At this point in my post, I have to wonder whether this is even ladylike at all, to discuss ones method of fur removal. Oh well, apparently I'm ladylike and shy in certain aspects of my life and then in others I just broadcast it for the world. In advance, sorry Dad for being too outspoken like Mummy when it comes to "lady matters".
