Guide Review - Barc Bump Down Razor Bump Relief
It is a very moisturizing lotion that uses an alcohol and fragrance free formula to rid the redness from razor burn and ingrown hair. It was simple and easy to use. Simply apply a thin layer right after shaving or waxing and allow to dry. You may feel a slight sting but it goes away very quickly, and after a few uses, you probably won't feel it anymore.
I was able to give a sample of Bump Down to a client who is African-American and gets frequent facials because he suffers from ingrown hair and razor burn. He used it for two weeks twice a day, until the bumps and burn went away, and then once a day to keep it from coming back. He hasn't had a bad breakout since. He said it has helped him to shave more often because he is not afraid he will immediately breakout.
Of course, I am not saying this product is perfect. But, it's as close as it comes. The sizes might be a bit small but they are perfect for traveling. The product does go a long way if you do not overuse it. I know it will be hard to not use liberally, because I actually found it better than some of the facial lotions out there.
The only downfall of this product isn't Barc Down Bump Relief itself, but getting the product. If you live on the East Coast, you should be okay. For those of you somewhere in between California and New York, you might have to hit the Web. It might take a day or two to get to you, but it's worth the wait!
