Hi Everyone! Sarah Bellum here with another product review. This time the Beauty Brains asked me to share my opinion on Bikini Kitty`s Shaving System for delicate areas. These products are designed to get rid of ingrown hairs and minimize shave irritation.
First, let me tell you I LOVE Bikini Kitty`s sense of style. I opened the box and was thrilled to find the cutest little pink purse-like bag, filled with 6 different goodies all wrapped up with a clever laminated card that explains how to use them:
Body Brush: A natural bristle brush designed to help loosen ingrown hairs.
Bikini Blades: Two green and pink single-blade disposable razors.
Smooth Shave Gel: a see through gel to give you a slick, hydrated shave.
No Nick Razor Oil: A lubricant for razor blades.
Razor-burn Soother: An anti-irritant for razor scraped skin.
Everyday Magic Spray: An Alpha-hydroxy Acid spray that`s supposed to stop ingrown hairs from forming.
I`ll leave it to Lefty and Righty to figure out the formulas but I’ll share my personal experience using the products. I usually shave every other day and while I don`t have any ingrown hairs, I do occasionally get razor rash. The plus of these products is that they address the entire shaving process in a step-by-step methodical way. It’s a very well thought out system that addresses all the causes of ingrown hairs and irritation and it taught me a lot about shaving. (Did you know that multi-blade razors can cut the hair so far below the skin that it can become ingrown?? I didn’t!)
So while I learned a lot about the causes, I also learned it`s a lot of work to do it the right way! First you have to brush your skin to loosen the ingrown hairs. Then you have to oil up your razor. And you can`t use a double blade you have to use a single blade which doesn`t seem to shave me as close. (I felt more stubbley after I was done.) Then you have to apply their shave gel which is almost see through so it`s hard to tell where you`ve already shaved. Then, you have to dry off and apply a razor-burn soother. Then, later, you have to apply the Magic spray to prevent the hairs from becoming ingrown. Whew! After following all these steps for a week, I had shaving fatigue.
I would really recommend this kit for anyone who has a serious shaving problems. If you’re irritated “down there” you need some help! But, ’cause I didn`t really have much of a problem to start with I didn`t get all that much benefit from using it. As much as I loved Bikini Kitty, it was just too much work for me!
