Summer's Unsung Hero | Tend Skin

Wednesday, August 28, 2013


Do you ever get razor bumps or ingrown hairs after hair removal? Ya.. me, too. This was sent to me a few weeks ago, and I gotta say, it could not have come at a better time.

Summer is probably the most popular month for hair removal, whether it's waxing, shaving, epilating, etc. This is a simple product that helps reduce the occasional side effects that can occur (i.e, annoying bumps).

This is a unisex product. Women can use it on their legs, bikini line (just be careful down there!), underarms, and basically anywhere else you remove hair.

Tend Skin* comes in a few different sizes (shown is the 4oz bottle). It's a liquid and it's best applied using a cotton swab or cotton ball. I actually really like that it's a liquid because it dries very quickly as opposed to creams (like BikiniZone).

One of the main ingredients is alcohol, so it has a very strong scent and it can also feel somewhat drying. It worked great with my skin, though. I used it twice a day & I noticeably saw a difference by the end of a week. It seems to be one of those products that you have to continually use to get results, though. I used it mainly for the bikini zone. I also gave some to a friend who used it for the underarms and legs. She has much more sensitive skin than me & it worked well on her, too. She did say it was quite drying on her skin, but a quick fix was to moisturize afterwards.

It's also important to note that if you have an allergy to Aspirin (hives, itching), you should not use this product; however, if you're not allergic and if you have troubles with ingrown hairs / bumps, I'd suggest giving this a try.

BTW, from a male perspective, it works great on razor bumps, but avoid cuts (due to the alcohol content).
