Okay, so a lot of the guys that support my site (thank you fellas) always complain I mean suggest that I incorporate some material for them. I know that I have been promising that I would for a while and this is the kick start of a series of post dedicated to the guys, “For the Fellas.” Gentlemen, this series is all about you so I would love your suggestions and feedback. Now onto the review…
Many of you may have already heard about and/or used Tend Skin but for those who have not, you are truly missing out. If you suffer from Razor Bumps, Razor Burn, Ingrown Hairs or just irritation period, then this is the product for you. Within days Tend Skin completely eliminates razor bumps and depending upon the severity, clears irritation and redness within hours. It also eliminates ingrown hairs within days and with prolonged use, prevents them from returning.
How it works
Tend Skin is formulated with Alcohol and Acetylsalicylic Acid, better known as Aspirin. Alcohol works as a drying agent and Acetylsalicylic Acid works as an anti-inflammatory agent and exfoliant. The alcohol dries out the bumps and Acetylsalicylic Acid reduces redness and irritation, and exfoliates the skin to release any ingrown hairs trapped beneath. Warning: If you are allergic to Aspirin, DO NOT use this product!
Ladies, don’t get too jealous yet as this product is for you as well. Sorry guys, I cheated lol. If you wax or shave your “Nether Region”, this product is a godsend. It reduces irritation on the spot and clears ingrown hairs within days. Be very careful, I repeat extremely careful upon application though. You wouldn’t want it to get into the wrong crevices as it burns like all hell (ouch)! I haven’t tried Tend Skin on my underarms or legs but I assume that it would work just as well.
Tend Skin is very easy to use. On dry skin, dampen a cotton ball and apply to the affected area twice daily at morning and night. As a preventive measure, use daily after hair removal. A tip from my Esthetician, skip the cotton ball as it wastes a lot of product and use your hands. Make sure your hands are thoroughly clean and use them to apply Tend Skin to the necessary area. *This product is very drying so if you experience excessive drying or flaking, use less often or take a break for a few days.
Tend Skin can be found online at drugstore.com or sephora.com. It comes in a 4 0z bottle for $20, 8 0z bottle for $35 , 16 oz bottle for $50 and a 2.5 oz refillable roll-on for $17. I noticed that you can sometimes find it for a few dollars cheaper at your local pharmacy or beauty supply store. In either case it is still pretty expensive.
- Very easy to use
- It works. It absolutely does what it claims!
- A unisex product
- Strong Alcohol Smell
If you think Tend Skin is too expensive, there is also a recipe to make your own batch at home using Aspirin, Alcohol and Witch Hazel. I haven’t tried it but it has great reviews. If interested in this recipe, see here. Use at your own discretion!
Have you tried Tend Skin? If so, did it work for you? I am looking forward to your feedback.
