I’ve had a lot of problems with ingrown hairs and the discoloration that follows. As an African American I pigment very easily from blemishes, acne, and ingrown hairs. I traded shaving for sugaring/waxing, stopped tweezing my eyebrows and started getting them threaded, I exfoliate more often, and now I’m into products that assist with ingrown hair removal. I started out using “Cool Fix” which I’ve previously done a review on and I loved it. It made extracting my ingrown hairs easier, the gel formula was soothing, and it did a great job at exfoliating. The only issue I had was that I was still discolored.
I was referred this product by my esthetician during one of my sessions. When I got it home I read the directions and immediately put it to use. So far so good, I like that it’s a roller ball so I don’t have to worry about creating a mess every where and it makes application convenient. I’ve been using it now for over two months and I think I see all the results it promised. My skin is actually starting to lighten (not in an MJ way) and even out and I rarely have huge ingrowns like I used to! The directions state to use this product twice daily. I started off using it twice daily but had to lessen my use because my skin starting peeling pretty bad but I guess that’s how you get rid of discoloration and uproot ingrown hairs.
That being said, this is a great product which costs about the same as the “Cool Fix” which was around $22-25. I will continue to use this product and replace it once I run out or something better comes along. 😉
