Here's What Happened When I Tried Veet's At-Home Eyebrow Wax...

We get lots of beauty samples sent to our office, and although it’s pretty amazing for the first couple of years (free shampoo! nail polish for life!), you can become jaded over time. But a product landed on my desk recently that actually caught my eye: an at-home eyebrow wax kit.

Now, I would normally keep anything with hair removal properties away from my face (unless it’s being administered by a professional), but Veet’s High Precision Facial Wax seemed like a beauty dare work taking. I mean, if it could save me the $20 I spend on semi-regularly salon waxing, then I might just have to spend that extra cash on some new clothes for fall. Right?

First step was to determine what shape my eyebrows needed to be. The Veet Facebook page has a cool tool for figuring that out — it’s actually based on your face shape. (Check yours here). I have an oval face, which means I need to keep my brows at their “natural shape,” but use the wax to get rid of stray hairs. Which, in full disclosure, I have quite a few of. I also have a love-hate relationship with my tweezers as a result. Ouch.

Not wanting to mess this up (although I would later learn that the directions are literally fool-proof — a cavewoman could do it), I also checked out the tips from celebrity brow stylist Stevi Christine on the Veet Facebook page. The woman has worked on Molly Sims and Lauren Conrad, so her tips are basically the eyebrow bible. Here were the takeaways: do NOT use a magnifying mirror while waxing (who knew?) and avoid caffeine for a few days before waxing because it actually makes the skin more sensitive. Also,  if you have naturally sensitive skin like I do, look for waxing products that contain ingredients like aloe vera, which soothes skin.

So, let’s do this thing!

Following the directions on the kit, I washed my face with warm water and dried it with a towel. Check the slideshow above to see what happened next. 

Spoiler alert: this stuff is the real deal. I will absolutely be at-home brow waxing in the future, and from one former salon-addict to another, I’d suggest you try it, too. The whole thing took a minute and a half. Yes, way! Also, p.s., you can use the High Precision Facial Wax on your upper lip and chin. Not that I have that problem! I swear.
