Shaveworks - The Cool Fix | Review

So I thought I would do a slightly different review, still beauty but the lesser glamorous side of beauty. I received the Shaveworks The Cool Fix in this months Birchbox and I was actually pretty happy and excited to try it out. 

The Cool Fix gel aims to help soothe ingrown hairs and razor bumps, I haven't really heard of the Shaveworks before and actually it's not something I've ever really thought about. Let's face it we all either wax or shave and every now and then we all get the odd ingrown hair. I get waxed literally every month and still always end up with one little one. Gross I know but what can I do?

Luckily (or not so lucky) enough when I received my Birchbox I actually had an ingrown hair so I thought it couldn't really make anything worse so I'll try it out. 

I really like the scent of this gel, it's really fresh, not floral or overpowering just really nice. This sample was filled right to the top so it was a great size and you actually use very little so I think it's going to last for quite sometime. When I applied it directly to the area it tingled for a split second, then was fine and it does have a cooling sensation. The Cool Fix absorbs pretty quickly into your skin which is good. 

The next day I noticed a reduction in size and it was a little less red. The Cool Fix contains ingredients that help gently exfoliate the area without having any exfoliating particles or beads in it which was nice. In addition to this it works out to be a lovely moisturiser too!

I'm really impressed with this product, it does what it says on the bottle which these days is very hard to find. I feel that if I had the skin type where i'd get a lot of bumps or rashes I think I would get more use out of the product but it's great for every now and then. 

Have you tried The Cool Fix out?
