I am going to write a review.
Ok, on to the review.
I am going to review “Veet Bladeless Shaving System.”
You purchase a package that looks very similar to a regular shaving system. The plastic package has a shaving cream shaped canister, and a razor blade shaped “tool.” However, the shaving cream shaped canister does not contain shaving cream, it contains a dipilatory cream, intended to remove hair without the use of a blade. The “tool” is meant to facilitate the removal of the dipilatory cream from the skin.
So, I spread this thick, gooey cream all over my leg, and look at the clock. You’re supposed to wait 3 minutes minimum, 8 minutes maximum. I figured I would only do one leg at a time, because if it took me longer than 8 minutes to do the first leg, the second one would be fucked.
Now, I’m sitting here on the edge of my bathtub with a thick, white, foul smelling cream all over my leg, and I’m watching time go by. After the given 3 minutes, give or take a few minutes, I begin pulling the pink “tool” across my skin. The first thing I notice is that this hurts MUCH more than a razor. The second thing I notice is I have to scrape it across my skin six or seven times before all the hair is removed. I start at the top and work my way down. By the time I get to my ankles, about 15 minutes has gone by, and my leg feels vaguely like it’s on fire. That’s ok though, there’s no hair left. So I rinse my leg, and use some soap on it just to make sure there’s no acid left behind, and then take it out for a test.
“How does this feel?”
“Smooth. I like it.”
I think to myself, “Sweet. Shit. Now I have to do the other leg.”
Back into the bathroom, back onto the edge of the tub, and on with the thick, gooey, white stuff. This time, however, I get impatient, and begin scraping off the crap before the first 3 minutes are up. That doesn’t matter so much, but when I get to the thicker hair that had 15 minutes to sit in its dipilatory bath, these ones have had just over 4 or 5 minutes. So they don’t come off. I scrape…and scrape…and scrape. Nothing doing. Oh well again. Fuck it.
It’s not worth it, I’m not doing it again, shaving in the shower takes about 3 minutes total. Veet? I think I’m at about half an hour. Let say I get good at it though, and it takes less time. Lets say it only takes me half that amount: 15 minutes. I can still do it TWELVE MINUTES FASTER THE NORMAL WAY.
Now that that is off of my chest.
Justin and I went to Resident Evil: Apocalypse today. It was pretty good. I like Milla Jovovich as an actress, and I think she did a good job. Most of the fight scenes were well done, and they didn’t overuse the suspense OH I MADE YOU JUMP factor, which is nice. I’m a chicken shit…I jump a lot. Maybe not as good as the first one, but worth seeing, even in the theater.
