Veet or Imac??

Ok, help me choose girls.
Im getting desparate to shave 'down below'.. I cant see what im doing anymore lol.. so instead of struggling and breaking into a sweat doing it Im thinking of using Immac or veet to do the job.
But I have never used either of these before, so not sure which is the best to use.. which has best results with least irritation?
Any advise will help girls.. thanks

  • hi as far as i am aware they are the same. i used to use immac but then thought it changed its name to veet, i might be wrong, but in any case id suggest getting the 'in-shower' one as the hair comes away so easily with a rough sponge that comes with it (much better than the scraper thing that comes with the ordinary ones). very quick and lasts so much longer than shaving.
  • ha ha, i knew my hormones were playing up.. so is my mind. I should have realised they were the same thing.. derrrrrrr. I just never bought them before so didnt realise.
    I wil get the in shower one.. sounds like a good option.. thanks hun.

    Are these the only ones out there? and are they the best?

  • i think you can get supermarket own brand ones, and i think superdrug do one but i have never tried them, only veet/imaac.there is a sensitive one aswell i think it is pink but i might be wrong, i just use the normal green one tho asnd have had no problems.
  • I think I read somewhere not to use hair removal cream when you are pregnant (coz of chemicals). I could be wrong though but would check just to make sure.
  • I just slap on a load of veet/immac once a fortnight now as i cant see a damn thing down there!image
  • ohhh.. not supposed to use it? ARGHHH I hope this isnt right or im stuffed. lol
    I never had this problem so early on with my other 2.. I even remember shaving (in a fashion) the night i was in labour with my 1st ha ha.
    best read up on whether can or not. thanks

  • i posted on here a few weeks ago asking if it was safe casue that was something i wondered about and anyone who answered said they knew it was fine.
  • have it waxed!!! saves time and lasts longer i had mine done 2 days before i went into labour!!! xx
  • Hi,

    I have heard your not supposed to use it too
  • oh dear i used hair removal cream through beg part of preg instead of waxing! my son seems ok at 7 months though but will def check out for next time xx
  • my friend (isnt pregnant) but she used this the other day and came out really allergic to it. she had a massive sore in her grion area, and we all laughed at her cos when she was drunk she kept telling people she had a weeping gash!!! nice. i would defo advise a test area
  • Neither!
    I've read the effects of depilatory creams on the unborn baby are unknown. You could have a professional waxing, although your skin might be more sensitive now. I've been using an epilator since pregnancy on my legs (I tried epilating underarms but it was too painful!)
    I wouldn't risk using creams, personally.

    Hope this helps,
  • I agree with the allergy test thing. Was going to my hubbies Summer bbq at London Business school last year (b4 pg) and used the in shower veet (for sensitive skin I think). Had it on for much less than the recommended 5 mins and could feel it burning so got it off quick but it had actually blistered all the skin on my legs. They were weeping and sore and I couldn't apply fake tan or anything and didn't have time to go shopping so had to wear my jeans with a nice top instead - was gutted and my legs were a total mess for weeks afterwards so apply with caution - even when not pregnant. I have also heard that you shouldn't use when pregnant but don't know if that still stands. Good luck ladies. Paula x
