For most of us, shaving and waxing is a weekly, if not daily, necessity. Unfortunately, more often than not bumps and red irritation replace the hair we’ve worked so hard to remove. This cooling, tingly gel instantly soothes irritated skin and exfoliates away dead skin to remove bumps permanently. Plus, the gel formula isn’t too liquidy, which makes it easy to apply, and the packaging looks way too cute to serve such an important function.
It does what it says...but use with caution.
I get frequent and terrible razor burn due to thick hair and sensitive skin. I used this product immediately after shaving...
...Don't do that.
It burned. It stung. It itched. It felt sticky.
BUT, ten minutes out of shouting expletives and concerning my neighbors, I had visibly smaller razor bumps and redness.
If I use this when the shave is not so fresh (say, before going to bed) the result isn't as intense. There's a cooling sensation and a slight tingle, but no explicit pain.
It does reduce bumps as it promises. Just don't slather it on freshly shaved sensitive skin.
Works wonders just as it says! No razor bumps, redness or irritation!! I love the "cool" feel it provides after using it. A little goes a long way.
The label warned that it might feel tingly--and it did. But it tingled so much that it felt like it was burning. Luckily, it didn't. My skin definitely felt softer, and a bit less irritated (after the burning wore off), but I don't know that it's done such a great job in the exfoliating/removing bumps permanently promise.
Never seen an "aftershave" for women... I use it in moderation if I have razorburn and it smells great and feels refreshing!
I really expected to love this product, as I usually struggle with HORRIBLY razor burn in my bikini area post-shave, usually around 1-3 days later. I bought the smaller bottle from the birch box shop, and was just plain disappointed in the results. The Cool Fix promises to heal pre-existing bumps and irritation, and I just didn't see that happen. What it did do, in my situation, was make the whole area sticky and further susceptible to irritation and friction. I realize that you need to give the product sufficient time to fully dry before dawning clothing... but in order to do so, you need to allot SEVERAL minutes, as the product is extremely sticky.
Sadly, I just do NOT recommend this product.
I was always prone to getting razor burn.. this helps prevent it and reduced the irritation! Highly recommended!
This lotion was tingly and I had my hopes up that it would help take away the red irritation I usually get after shaving my bikini line. It took away any pain or itch, but I didn't notice a difference in redness or bumps.
instantly soothes anywhere that I've shaved that may become or be a little irritated. keeps itching and ingrown hairs at bay. don't mind the smell either!
I bought this to help reduce irritation and itchiness after shaving the bikini area. It did pretty much nothing to help with either of these problems. I applied it regularly and have worse bumps than when I just use lotion or the product I normally get at the drugstore that I was hoping to improve upon. It burned a little after applying too. I didn't give it 1 star because my skin was soft and it smelled pretty good. I will be looking for something else and would not recommend.
This worked well to calm inflammation but I still got ingrown hairs after waxing, even when I used it every day.
