I use Se-Brazil waxing products and have learned from one of the best teachers; Stephanie Laynes; founder of Se-Brazil. When Stephanie developed a new product and was looking for beta testers I jumped at the chance. Especially when the product focused on solving an issue that I have and I see many others having too. Da da da dummmm-the dreaded ingrown hairs.
Exfoliation is really key in managing this skin condition, and yes, it is a condition of the skin that largely brings about this problem. When there are excess dead skin cells laying on the surface of the skin the hair has a hard time pushing through to the surface. It gets trapped and continues to grow, forming a little bump. People with coarse or curly hair can also be plagued by ingrowns. In some people, the ingrowns become infected which can be painful and can even lead to scarring. We don't want that! No way.
So, back to exfoliation. Some people use a mitt or a loofah which are good exfoliators but think about it. These items are used in the shower. A place where it's warm and wet. Do you see where I'm going with this? That's right; the perfect environment for nasties to grow. And if you are the type who is prone to the infected type of ingrowns; head for the hills! Unless you're committed to laundering and drying your mitt or loofah between uses this really isn't a good choice.
That's why I'm excited about these little bars. The purple one has a rough texture which is perfect for dry, rough skin (hello my legs). I couldn't feel the physical exfoliation with the brown bar but it might be just the thing for a more delicate area. I used both bars every night for a week and wow! What a difference. Lots of dead skin cells were removed and free little hairs left in their place. The next time I sugar my legs I know I will get a much better result.
The purple bar contains Lavender/Shea Butter/Oatmeal and the brown one Lavender/Shea Butter/Brown Sugar and both have a base of Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Essential Oil Blend, Vegetable Glycerin, Rosemary Extract, and Vitamin E Extract. I'm going to continue to experiment using the bars separately now to see if there is a difference in their performance on my problem areas.
Thanks Stephanie for another great product. I'm really looking forward to sharing these products with my clients.
After some more treatments (and sugaring my legs again!) I'll reveal the "after" shots. I'm excited!!!
