Yes. If you wax, you know that hairs grown back in at different stages. My recommendation is to use this 2-3 days in a row, following the initial wax. Then use a pad a few times as the hairs start to grown in. If you start to notice any hairs getting irritated or possibly starting to turn into an ingrown, use a pad. It's not necessary to use a pad every day.

For me it does. Hair grows out at different rates. So long as you start using this product right after hair removal until all hair seems to have grown out, you are good. When all hair is out, you just need to exfoliate and maintain the area. I actually cut the pads in half and use it during "down time" to save the product for days when I need more of it.

Question
Are these considered ingrowns and can this product help?
I don't often get the typical red, painful bump associated with ingrowns. What I DO get, and quite often at once, are some hairs grown right under the first this layer of skin that you can actually see, and they actually look like they're just laying flat on my skin, but when touched they don't move. If I were to give it a hard scratch it would come loose. Are these still considered ingrowns and will this product help? I get them a lot at once, and I exfoliate a lot too! *Sighh*

Hmmm....not sure if they're considered in growns but I get those a lot too when they're just growing close to the surface. I can see them easily since i'm so fair. I usually just scratch them since they usually come out without issue. But if they don't come out easily, I would leave them. This would probably not help with those. Look around for Tend Skin product. That helps

The best thing to use once you get those ingrowns under the skin is a sterlized thread needle. Sounds awful, but its the best thing that works to get them out. Nothing is 100% preventable for ingrowns, but this product helps lessen the chances. I still get the same types of ingrowns, so you have to realize there is no miracle out there.

Yes, those are ingrowns. You may just need to moisturize right after you exfoliate to soften the skin and let the hairs grow out.

This product helps prevent ingrowns, so if you don't use it, then yes, you could get more ingrowns. Using one jar wouldn't stop ingrowns from happening the rest of your life. How often you use these will depend on how often you shave or wax. If you wax your bikini line, then you only need to use it a few times in between waxing as the hairs start to grow.

I don't use these every day, just a few times a week, but I really doubt that they will make bumps or ingrown hair get worse. It may seem like that if you stop using them and then suddenly bumps start popping back up, but I don't think that the bumps would be any worse then they were before using the pads.

Tend Skin or this?
I have all kinds of things on my legs....
I have ingrown hairs, bumps, cuts due to my attempt to remove ingrown hairs.... =( and some scars due to bugs bite (which is not relevant to this product at all I think)

Is there anyone that actually used both of the products and have a good comparison, or know which one is better for me?

I have used Tend Skin in the past on my bikini area after shaving and it worked for me. It stings a little when applying and left my skin a bit red right after application (goes away soon after), but it was totally worth it. I recently purchased the Bliss pads, because I couldn't find Tend Skin, and was extremely disappointed. They were completely ineffective and left a sticky residue on my skin.

I actually alternated use of both products, so I'm not sure which of the two may have been more affective, but I would highly recommend buying both and using one for morning, one for night. I believe the Bliss product is best for exfoliation to avoid bumps and the Tend Skin product is great for any bumps that may occur after the fact.

I've used both and I like the Bliss pads WAY better. Tend Skin is much more irritating and the dryness it causes (for me anyway) is just as bad as the ingrown hairs. The Bliss pads are much more gentle but still work great.

Use before shaving as frequently as you have to shave. Shaving or plucking starts the "ingrown process" so you have to do it before you shave or pluck. That is why it can actually get expensive!

Depends on what you're trying to fix. For bikini line, I use one the day I shave and one the day after which lessens the pain of the grow-back. For body acne, if you want to see results, you might want to use these every day in the problem spot. Hope this helps!

Precautions:
-Contain salicylic and glycolic acids, which can produce a slight stinging sensation when applied to recently shaved or freshly waxed skin.
-Avoid application for at least 12 hours after shaving and 24 hours after waxing or sun exposure.
-Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
-Avoid contact with eye area.

They just mean that they want your pores to be open. After showering your pores are open the most because the steam in your shower opens then. So the box means that the do want your skin a little moist. So just towel dry the area you want to use the product on and start your use no need to wash off after you use. Good luck and stay fabulous!

After you have toweled off, swipe the pad against the direction of hair growth. The pad will be damp, so it will quickly dry on the skin. Do NOT rinse as the ingredients help sooth irritated skin and would defeat the purpose of the product. Think of it like Strydex or Oxy acne pads. Apply to clean, dry skin, and let dry before applying make-up. You don't have to use right after a shower though.

I think you may want to let the skin dry so as not to dilute the product. I usually use these wipes when I know I don't have to go out for a while b/c I don't want to do any other products on top or have to wash it off.

How is the product packaged?
I'm concerned about shipping and was wondering if there is a foil or thick paper seal that would prevent the liquid contents from leaking out in transit. Thanks!

Contrary to the other respondents here, I have had multiple leakage incidents with the packaging of this product. I have ordered two jars online and both arrived with moisture stains on the box and the outside of the jar was sticky to the touch. I have also bought jars in the store--one was fine when I got home, the other also leaked as the turned on its side in my purse on the way home. There is no internal seal of any kind--no foil under the lid and clearly the lid is not watertight. There is a plastic seal on the outside of the jar, but if the box is not right-side up (which it won't always be in transit!), it leaks. The good news is, there's not a ton of excess liquid inside, it's mostly contained in the pads BUT I will say that the pads in the jar which did not leak were substantially more damp than the others, which had started to dry out a bit by the time I got through the whole package. The photo I've attached shows the water damage to the box along the fold.

There is a nice foil seal on the jar when it arrives, so there shouldn't be any issues with spillage. Keep it tightly sealed once opened to avoid having your product dry out. There is also a travel size with individually sealed foil packets that are fabulous for vacation!

There is no foil. It just comes in a screw top container. The lid does fit very tight and is lined to create a secure closure. I wouldn't described the pads as being submerged in liquid enough for it to leak, its more like they are slight moist. I had it shipped to me without any problems.

It is both. If you use once a day, after your shower is best, it prevents. If you already have them I have found that if you use it 2x a day (morning and night) for a couple of days it will clear up. Once it is clear then go back to once a day. :)
