Hi,

I use it on my undersarms before waxing, so I would think it should be okay on the face. However, don't let it get into your eyes.

Hope this helps.

I saw a visible reduction in razor bumps in the first week. It does have a very nice cooling effect too, so it feels good and reduces redness and bumps. As far as the legs are concerned, I don't know if it would work. The facial hair and overall skin thickness on the face is materially more sensitive and fine then that of the legs.

answer 2
a very small amount, just enough to cover the surface is needed. (For me it is smaller than dime size.) It takes about 1-3 times to completely mask redness/ingrown hairs. It is better at preventing than curing, so i suggest using immediately after shaving.

answer 3
Apply a dime sized amount or more to shaved areas paying special attention to trouble areas. Use right after shaving and up to twice daily until symptoms clear up(usually 2-3 days). May be used every other day as a preventative measure after skin has cleared. Avoid shaving against the grain on problem areas especially before symptoms subside.

I've been using this product for a little over a week now and I've already noticed an improvement! The razor bumps and redness have diminished and my skin is much smoother. A thin layer before bedtime is all you need to be prepped for the morning shave.

answer 8
I use about a quarter size, day and night till the redness and bumps have disappeared! I then use it every time I shave to keep the irritation away. Using it day and night can take anywhere from a week to 2 weeks depending on the severity of irritation. If you do not see any relief in 2 weeks though try Tend Skin. It is also sold at Sephora and is a little stronger, its to strong for me but might be okay for you.

Yes, this is made for men and the scent, I would think, is distinctly masculine. It contains a fair amount of acids and alcohol that it was designed for "healing" facial imperfections. I can't imagine a woman wanting this product on their legs or underarms with the way the scent layers with perfumes and colonges.

My husband uses this on his face after he shaves with Lab Shave Cream. Prior to this product combo, he used various drug store products that made him HATE shaving because his sensitive skin breaks out. I would say he also has a coarse beard (it never feels soft to me!).

I have not tried it on my face but assuming that he keeps it away from his eyes, I don't see why not. Since he has sensitive skin he might want to try it once a day instead of the twice a day it recommends in the beginning.

How to Use
Is this a pre shave or post shave gel? I have to use a braun foil razor to help minimize ingrown haors and other breakouts due to shaving and am interested in using this product in addition to the razor, but it would need to be for post-shave and post-shower if possible to go with my daily routine.

Hi,

If it had one on the container, I can't find it. However, mine is about a year old and just as effective when it was new. I only used it for a few days before I wax my underarms, so I don't use it that often. However, there has been no change in how effective it is over the past year. It's great.
