Veet Salon Line Ready to Use Wax Strips, $7
The claim: "In just minutes you can have perfectly smooth skin that lasts up to four weeks. The wax strips are easy to apply and are removed immediately."
How it works: You rub two wax-coated paper strips between your palms for several seconds (to heat them up), then peel them apart and press them on your skin, in the direction of hair growth. A quick, hard tug in the opposite direction rips the hair out.
Our verdict: An efficient, if sticky, process. Three weeks after a professional waxing, these strips removed all our stray hairs without more than a fleeting sting. They left behind a tacky residue, but the wipes (included) dissolved it.
