I know that a few posts back I promised I would tell you which lovely lady won Miss Veet SA this year. Last week we gathered at the beautiful Four Seasons Westcliff and sipped mocktails and canapés while we eagerly anticipated the announcement.
Veet has been a part of my life since my teen years. I personally feel that there are very few drugstore bath and beauty products that truly understand young women and Veet is definitely one them.
I have a very low pain threshold (I’m currently DYING because my wisdom tooth decided to be unwise and grow) so when those pesky leg hairs began showing up I refused to go get them waxed. I made my Mom buy me some Veet cream that I’d seen on TV and I haven’t regretted it since. The chemical smell is minimal, the results are practically instant and totally painless and it’s moisturizing as heck. The results also last quite a few days and as the years went by Veet have made their product even better with quicker in-shower versions, light versions for sensitive skin and new scents. As I got older I decided to take the plunge and try out the Veet wax strips for my face. Despite smelling good they work really well and didn’t hurt as much as I expected them to. I now use a combination of the creams and wax strips to keep my skin smooth and soft.
Veet is a brand and product that I am really comfortable with and I think that it will be a part of my life for a long time to come if not forever. Being a part of the Miss Veet SA process this year was lots of fun. As I’ve mentioned before, Miss Veet is so much more than just pretty faces and long, smooth legs. It’s about feminity, empowerment and encouraging these girls to go fourth and be more than just what they look like. This is why I was pretty delighted when one of my favourites, Odirile Sepang was named Miss Veet SA for 2015. She stood out for me in her views about empowerment and I’m really excited to see what she does with her title.
Until next time
Love and sparkles
