This bottle was something I had bought a long time back. I used it for a few days and then it went right behind my cupboard for some reason (I have no idea why). Now that the winters are almost gone, there isn't much need for super thick lotions, I needed something lighter. Generally my go to summer body lotion is Jergens Aloe Relief (it is very good and refreshing!) and I need to buy a new bottle soon. But for now I dug out the Veet Touchably Smooth Hair Minimising Body Moisturiser (Phew! That's long) and I have been using it long enough now to share my views.
The sole reason I had picked this up was the "hair minimising" claim. Now, who wouldn't want that?! (okay, if you are one of those rare lucky species of women who are naturally smooth all over... I do not like you all by the way..life is so unfair! except you women, others are bound to be intrigued by this).
It comes is a cute shaped bottle, with a flip top cap. Sturdy. Travel friendly.
This one is for sensitive skin. They also have variants for all skin types (that has some shimmer in it) and one for normal/dry skin.
So, I have been using this continously once a day (sometimes twice). I usually epilate, but I tried this after waxing too, I cannot talk about its effect after shaving though. If anyone of you know, let us know. It does live up to its claims. It will not make the hair growth stop completely (imagine if they do make some miracolous product like that!).
What this does is slow down the rate of hair re-growth and it does make re - growth a bit softer. I honestly did not think it would have any effects so this was a good surprise. I usually last for around 3 weeks after which I can see noticeable re-growth, but with this I am good for another week easily. Why did I ever push it back in my closet?! So weird.
The lotion itself is quite light (I feel it would't give enough hydration by itself during winters) and is more suitable for normal days. It absorbs easily and leaves the skin feeling quite smooth. The fragrance is mild and does not stay for long.
Price : 85 INR for 90 ml
180 INR for 225 ml
I would totally get this again and a bigger bottle next time! (assuming that it is still available) Honestly, anything that can will give me a few more hair stress free days deserves to be bought again :D
