I’ve seen so many posts on the Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit lately, and it feels as if it’s like it’s a Veet sponsored advert on Instagram every second post, so I decided I needed to try it. I love dermaplaning, and have used facial razors for a few years now to remove the velous hair aka peach fuzz from my face.
Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit
The Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit is expensive in my opinion, as it’s £29.99 and that’s the price for some electric razors that you can use all over your body. This device is purely for use on the face, and you can buy facial peach fuzz razors for £5-£6.
I bought mine from Boots as I had Boots Points, but look around for the best price as I’ll tell you straight away, it’s not worth £29.99 of anyone’s money. Places like Amazon tend to have things like this on some sort of permanent discount, so shop around if you do decide you want to try it.
The Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit is supposedly based on the popular dermaplaning treatment from skincare experts, in that it removed fine facial hairs known as peach fuzz, and dead skin cells for instant results.
It promises visibly brighter, smoother and rejuvenated facial skin. It also promises ‘better absorption of skincare products’ and a smoother canvas for makeup. For £30 you get the handle, two blade heads, one battery, a white nylon storage bag and white brush for cleaning away loose hairs. You also get two small vials of their Miraculous Oil that they recommend for use with the razor, and they sell that separately for £10 – ouch.
- Veet Sensitive PrecisionTM Face Kit Dermaplaning treatment takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
- We recommend using a new head for every treatment.
- To remove the protective overcap: 1) break the tab, and then 2) remove by sliding off.
- To turn the device ON / OFF, push the ON / OFF button.
- Hold the device between your thumb and forefinger and hold the blade at a 45-degree angle to the skin.
- Dermaplane your cheeks, your entire chin area (including just below chin), above and below your lips and your forehead. Dermaplane each area while supporting your skin with a finger from your other hand. Use short feathery strokes, begin at hairline just in front of ear and move inward following the contours of your face.
- The device is waterproof and can be rinsed clean after use.
I’m going to be extremely blunt right now. The Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit is absolutely rubbish. Firstly, it’s electronic and needs a battery but the electronic function has absolutely no benefit whatsoever. It doesn’t move the blade, it just vibrates the white handle so it’s just pointless. You could spend £3.99 on a pack of Tinkle Beauty Razors and achieve absolutely the same result, and it’d be more hygienic as you could bin it after every use.
Secondly, the blade isn’t sharp enough for remove hairs. So you have to keep going over the same piece of skin over, and over to remove hair and it is literally scraping the surface of the skin which is really damaging, and the blade gets hot during use and burnt my cheek. I wish I was joking, but I’d only been using it for two minutes.
The Veet Dermaplaning Sensitive Precision Face Kit blades are so blunt, that it actually hurts as it catches the hairs on your face. I know I used Boots points, but I’m beyond gutted I wasted £30 on this as it’s just so bad, and I’m still treating the tiny burn on my cheek almost a week later. It’s so, so bad and in my opinion, a massive waste of money. If you want to try dermaplaning, try Tinkle Razors as they’re much more gentle on the skin and are a lot, lot cheaper.
