Has anyone seen those commercials for Veet? The one that shows the chick effortlessly wiping the cream on her legs and then wiping it off with that little shaver, and then she comes out of the bathroom after like 30 seconds and her husband or whoever is there rubs up her leg with that "silky smooth" look of approval on his face? Let me be the first to tell you that this commercial is NOT TRUE. I tried it. Veet. And here's how that commercial should go. A chick with hairy legs in a hurry goes into the bathroom with Veet. She pumps the cream onto her hands like the directions say and instantly throws up inside her mouth a little bit because the smell is something like dog poo mixed with ammonia. While dry-heaving, she rubs the cream onto her legs in a thick layer and starts jumping up and down in pain because the cream feels like it's burning through her flesh. After waiting the grueling 3 minutes she checks a patch of hair with the flimsy little shaver and finds that absolutely no hair is rubbing off. So she waits the maximum 6 minutes and checks again. Still hairy as ever. So she rubs as hard as she can with the flimsy little razor....still hairy. So she grabs a towel and rubs as hard as she can to wipe all the cream away...still hairy. Frustrated, she opens the bathroom door, gets a breath of fresh air, and finds her husband, waiting with anticipation. He takes a look at her blotchy, pink, hairy legs, and says, "I told you that stuff wouldn't work."
Ok, so maybe I embellished a little. The truth is, it does stink, it does sting a little, and doesn't work at all. I am so jealous of you ladies who only have to shave once every couple of weeks. I feel like a gorilla with my have-to-shave-every-single-day legs.
