Veet, for girls.
Amber Chia hoped that the winner would make full use of the opportunities given to her. She said "I remembered my first big break, when I was named the winner of Guess Timeless Beauty Model Search in 2004. Winning the competition has opened so many doors for me, and I am truly grateful for what I've been able to achieve. That's why I think Veet Mega Model Search is a great opportunity for girls who dream of becoming a model, like what I used to wish for when I was their age."
In terms of what makes the winner in this search, Amber said "I'm looking for a model who has it all - height, bone structure, poise, a good sense of style and most importantly confidence that exudes from within."
Known for her flawless smooth skin, Izara Aishah vouched for the effectiveness of the all-new Veet Brightening Hair Removal Cream. "I need to make sure I look my best at all times, but I don't like to spend too much time on beauty maintenance. The Brightening Hair Removal Cream is the perfect product for me as it does two things at once, it removes all traces of hair while making sure my skin looks fairer and smoother! I don't have to worry about uneven skin tone of discolouration, and because of this, I feel so much more confident and feminine when I'm working or making public appearances," she commented.
