AT THE age of 13, Maxine Anne Sibert was frustrated at having to shave her legs with a shaving blade. It was only five years later that she found a Veet product that eased her frustration and gave her more confidence to show off her legs.
Sibert, now 22 and studying software engineering at MultiMedia University (MMU), had the best pair of legs to claim the title of Ms Veet in the Veet Stand-Out Challenge held at Cineleisure Cineplex in Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, last recently.
“When I was a teenager, I found it difficult to use a blade to shave. I risked cutting myself and had to shave carefully.
“But using Veet is simple - I have only to apply it and wait three minutes, and all the hair would be removed, leaving my legs silky smooth, so I can show them off proudly,” said
Sibert, who was surprised when she was announced the winner. received prizes worth more than RM1,000, including a full spa package and a complete range of Veet products.
Nicole Tan was placed second, winning herself a full make-up session, manicure, pedicure and Veet products that were worth more than RM650 in total, while Careen Yew was third.
Reckitt Benckiser Sdn Bhd marketing manager Ng Yee Peng said the challenge was about women feeling desirable while having confidence to show off their legs.
“This challenge started in October last year with entries and nominations coming in from various colleges and universities, such at MMU, Sunway University College, Taylor's University College and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR).
“We know that college students have busy schedules with classes and examinations. Veet caters to their busy lifestyles by providing the fastest and most effective beauty tools and aids to produce results that are long-lasting and successful,” said Ng.
The 10 finalists - Sibert, Yew, Amy Soon, Yong Loo Hui, Maggi Tan, Cheryl Kwek, Janice Wei, Celine Yap, Shirline Chow and Tan - each received a range of Veet products and Guardian vouchers.
