Veet - Bladeless shaving kit
« on: July 06, 2005, 04:40:55 am »
I got a veet bladeless shaving kit. It worked alright, exacept it missed a bunch of hairs. :( Any way around this? Leave it on longer?

Also, my skin got bumpy, like an allergic reaction after using it, but that went away within 5 minuts. Is that normal?

I don't know what Veet is, but in the context, I take it as some kind of chemical depilitory.  All of these work by chemical reaction, and yes, it can be a little rough on the skin, if you get a rash, try reducing the time you keep it on before cleaning it off.  depending on if allergic, might work, might not.

thats why it's so hard to find any of these products that actually work on face hair, which is generally tougher and courser then body hair. Just don't shave anything after using either as putting a razor to what is essentually burnt skin can irritate it worse.

While I do not have the bladless shaving kit, I do use Veet for Sensative skin.

The first time i used it I did not leave it on long enough.  I now leave it on for the full 10 minuets recommended, and have no reactions.l

I do use a face cloth to wipe it off, and it does a great job, however the first time when I just tried the shower, it did not work well at all

Hiya all,

I dont know what veet is, or if we have it out this way, but I recently had a serious allergic reaction after shaving, and although I havent been on T yet, I have beard growth.
The razor I was a 'close shave' type of one and I believe it just was too deep a blade for me,so Im trying out different shaving blades, cus my skin went all bumpy and I was scratching the hell out of it for 2 days, ugh.

Never again. Might take me awhile before I find msyelf a good razor for my sensitive skin. I wont shave for a few weeks now though, as that was the worst rash I have ever experienced, in the bin with that gilette razor! 8)

No more lumps and bumps for Me thanks lol ::) :D


Take care,

Nathan

Nathan,

Welcome to the wonderful world of beard shaving. Most of us GM's got bumps the first time we started shaving. For me I was not so looking forward to shaving but it eventually became a necessity, especially after I joined the Army. They're such sticklers for that smooth shaved look.

I used to break out  terribly and would have to go two or three days without shaving for my face to heal. After continued shaving the irritation was not so bad. When I started shaving my legs it was like going through the same thing all over again only worse, my legs itched like crazy. Doesn't happen now, I think that may be because of the E. My leg hairs have become softer.

The coarsness of the beard hair makes shaving a skin pulling process which really irritates the folicles near the skin resulting in breakouts. I still get that  even after all these years except now I can't let it go for a couple of days so I just have to deal with it. Fortunately good makeup covers a multitude of sins.

Then of course there are the ingrown hairs which are always a problem. As you get more consistant coverage of your face you may want to just grow a beard and see how it works for you. No shaving is much easier. Of course you'll need to keep it neat and trimmed. Scraggley beards are really unbecoming.

I have used the bladeless shaving kit for a couple of months now and I swear by it. I don't think I will ever shave my legs or arms again, which doesn't bother me a bit. Shaving is always rough on my skin  no matter what kind of razor or shave lubricant I use. Unfortunately it doesn't work well at all on my face, so I'm stuck shaving until I can afford Laser. :icon_censored:
