Well it seems really great...
Actually I haven't tried it, but wanna ask something: does it work well without witch hazel? I can't find it in my town... I don't go online shopping due to some reason...
This homemade mixture works better than any other product out there. LOVE IT!!!!
I love this product! I was skeptical at first because I tried other remedies (Bikini Zone, different razors and shaving creams, baby powder, deodarant, etc.) but nothing worked like mixing this stuff together. It reeks, and it burns when you apply it usually, but it works within 10 minutes! Continuous application several days after shaving helps soothe the area as well.
This does soothe and temporarily reduce the red bumps that waxing causes. It's also good for cuts or pimples to disinfect and reduce redness. The alcohol or witch hazel disinfects, and the aspirin loosens the dead skin that could cover the follicles and reduces swelling and redness. You still have to manually exfoliate, but this mixture does help.
I hope I'm not speaking too soon, but I think I LOVE this product! I have to worst luck with shaving bumps/irritation/ingrown hairs on my lower legs and bikini line and over the past couple of years I have tried everything to get rid of them (Epilators, Waxing, BikiniZone, manual exfoliation, chemical exfoliants like lactic acid, ect.) and nothing has worked..except this! I made up a batch of this a few days ago and all the ingredients together honestly cost under 5$. I put the asprin in an old coffee grinder and I had a batch mixed up in around 2 minutes flat.. such a time/money saver! I have been applying to my legs/bikini line once or twice a day for the past 4 days and there is a significant improvement. I don't notice any new ingrowns/irritations developing and slowly but surely all the present bumps are dissapearing. I really hope this continues to work for me! Thank you everyone for providing this recipe and all your helpful reviews, I am so happy I came across this recipe!
This does the trick every time. I mix it up in a water bottle with a prominent label on the front (don't want any mix-ups!), and apply it every other day for prevention. Thanks to those who shared the recipe. You've saved me hundreds of dollars over the years!
I followed the instructions to make this exactly. It had absolutely no effect whatsoever. I had ingrowns before I started using it and still have them now. I used the whole batch hoping that eventually I would see a difference but it never happened. I'm thankful I didn't spend £13 on the real stuff. I won't be making this again.
My husband shaves his head and uses this afterwards. He says it works great to stop irritation, especially on his neck. I use it a s a spot treatment and it seems to work well for that too. It's cheap and definelty worth giving it a shot. I bought huge amounts of all of the ingredients for less thatn $5.
Well, I'm a little unorthodox when I make this. I kind of just dump rubbing alcohol, aspirin, and witch hazel into a bottle until I'm satisfied with my concoction. It's basically about 3/4 alcohol and 1/4 witch hazel. I use a sizeable bottle of Dickinson's (which I believe has 14% alcohol as it is), which I got at Ulta for really cheap, alcohol and probably 12 aspirin. I dump this into a spray bottle and spritz it on cotton rounds, and then rub it on my legs. Almost instantly the razor irritation is gone. Leaves my skin dry as hell though, but then I moisturize and all is well. I predict myself using this quite frequently and it's a great alternative to Tendskin, which has that pesky expiration date that I always forget about.
This works wonders for razor irritation and zits. Easy to prepare and is cheap to make.
