For the past month or so I have been testing out this product and I am here now to report my amazing results! I truly am amazed by this stuff.
I have been a shaver for most of my life. Let's see, I would probably be going on about 30 years or so of shaving at this point. I have also tried epilating and waxing, which both work just fine, but shaving tends to be what I do the most.
Shaving works great, and I am quite quick at it at this point. I am probably down to about 20-30 minutes for my entire body! Wow. But the thing that I hate about it is ingrowns! I suffer wildly from ingrowns. Probably ever single time I shave I end up with about 10 or more ingrowns in various places. And more often than not they hurt!
Anywho.... I have had an ingrown on my upper inner thigh for several months and the hair just never seemed to want to come to the surface for me to be able to pluck it. I examined it several times to no avail. The hair was in there and it was NOT going to come out. I tried sloughing, and another chemical exfoliator, but nothing was working. Through some other website I found this product, PFB Vanish and decided to give it a whirl.
It it applied easily enough, you just roll it on the spot. Being as I have such difficulties with ingrowns, especially on my inner thighs, I began using it over all of my inner thighs and not just on that one stubborn ingrown. It took about 3-4 weeks, applying it in the morning and and night, but do you know what happened? Eventually that little bugger of a hair showed its evil little head and I was able to snag it with a pair of tweezers and pop out a nasty little twisted up hair that was about 1/2 - 1 inches long! Yuck! Nasty! But YAY for this product! It actually brought it out and to the surface.
So, it destroyed that long-term nasty giant ingrown I have had for about 3-4 months. YAY again! But during that time this lovely little product has also kept my other ingrowns to a minimum. I have developed them, but the little red raised bumps, indicating a start of an ingrown just sort of disappered and never actually developed into full on giant ingrown volcanoes as many of mine do. They just disappeared within a couple of days.
But wait, there is more! Once this stuffed showed its merit on ingrowns that had developed I decided to start putting it all over my thighs, which is an area that is notorious for getting ingrowns on me. I also took a further risk by shaving against the grain of the hair in that location. I know, not the best, but it really is the only way to have super soft smooth legs. So I went for it this weekend, and guess what? No ingrowns developed at all! And no irritation from shaving! I am seriously impressed with this stuff. Can you tell?
The one caveat I will say is that your skin will peel a bit from using it. It was a minor concern for me, but you should be aware of this before you dive into it head on. It never hurt, but it did cause my skin to experience a mild peeling. It acts like a mild chemical exfoliant and thus a bit of drying and I really only noticed the peeling after I had been sitting in the spa for like 2 hours. Upon getting out while drying off, I noticed a bit of peeling skin on my thighs. I just dried it off and it was done. No pain, just a bit of peeling.
I am so impressed with the effectiveness of this product that I made sure I went to amazon and purchased a second bottle to have on hand before my first one ran out. Yeah, I like it that much!
So there ya go!
Destroy all ingrowns!
