Review of The Cool Fix by Shaveworks

From Scruffy Beard to Bikini Line: We Test a Unisex Aftershave Gel

Whether you're a man or woman, at one point or another you've undoubtedly experienced some sort of shave-related discomfort. Shaveworks's unisex product, The Cool Fix ($11-$25), is an all-in-one gel lotion that hopes to free you from your shaving troubles. But can an aftershave product treat both razor burn and prevent ingrown hairs on two very different subjects of the opposite gender?

I called in Mr. Bella to find out. A hairy man he is, Mr. B's five o'clock shadow usually rolls in more around 10 o'clock . . . in the morning. As for me, I'm a light-skinned lady with dark brown hair, which can turn out to be a bikini-line nightmare. So to find out how we fared with The Cool Fix, just keep reading.

What she says:
Just to be sure it was working like it said it would, I only applied The Cool Fix to the right side of my bikini line as a way to compare the effects. This lotion/gel, which smells kind of like soft peppermint and beach combined (that's a good thing), glided on very smoothly and evenly. Shockingly, it didn't even sting or burn upon contact. Instead, I got a nice cooling sensation without an oily or sticky residue. I tend to get tiny bumps and redness in this location, and after two days of usage, the irritation was a lot less noticeable. I would definitely use this product again.

What he says:
It goes on smoothly and feels cool on the skin. It's pleasant with no burn. As for the smell, it's clean and not overly perfumey — which is nice. It didn't blow my mind, but it felt good on the face. I would use it again just because of that.

I'd be curious to see how it compares to TendSkin too - I have terrible ingrowns all over my legs and I'm always looking for a miracle product!

Tend Skin is amazing! I just started using it after I got my legs, bikini waxed! I also did my arms for the first time, and I have quite sensitive skin so I was worried. But it helped sooo much, the little red bumps have disappeared and it also healed a couple of ingrowns that I had. It's smell is quite strong but it fades completely on the skin. Pricey also, but totally worth it!!

I always find hair conditioner works well (for shaving too). I don't know how the price compares.
