I love the summer. I love the amazing weather, the beach, travel, the barely-there outfits. What I don’t like, however, is my bikini line. I’ve been shaving or using hair removal creams down there for a majority of my life, with a few waxing visits sprinkled in between. Let’s face it, waxing is not only expensive, but it’s painful. So, I’ve tried to avoid it by doing my own at home hair removal process. This has been better on my pockets, but it’s left me with a number of ingrown hairs, bumps, and scars that I’m not really fond of. Every summer I say I’m going to buckle down and fix this, and finally, I did. While reading an article on InStyle.com I came across a brand called PFB Vanish that they mentioned was one of the best when it comes to treating your bikini line.
After doing some research I saw that PFB Vanish has a range of products meant to correct and heal the skin. Whether that’s the bikini area, underarms, nape of the neck, legs, chest, or back. They cover everything from ingrown hairs, razor bumps, to cellulite, and discoloration. So, I had to give it a try. Of their product offering, I got the PFB Vanish Ultra ($23), and PFB Bikini Mask ($29).
The PFB Vanish Ultra is a triple action post hair removal serum that helps to remove and prevent ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dark spots that come from hair removal. You simply apply it once or twice a day onto the area that needs treatment, in my case I did the bikini line. I’d do this out of the shower and/or before bed. The first time I used it was after shaving, so there was definitely some stinging. Fortunately, it went away after three seconds, literally. From there, it didn’t sting again with any other application whether I’d just shaved or not, which I’m grateful for.
What’s also great about this product is that it comes in a roll-on form, so there’s no mess. So what I’d do is glide it over the area I wanted to treat and let it air dry. Directly after shaving, I also use the PFB Bikini Mask, which helps to soothe the skin and prevent any bumps or ingrown hair from forming. The mask is a cream solution so I’d spread it over the area and leave it on to absorb.
Now, for the results. Long story short, it’s actually working!! After about two weeks of usage, I started to notice some change, and in four weeks saw a drastic difference. The dark marks cleared up, the skin on my bikini line was much smoother and had zero bumps or ingrown hairs.
Two main ingredients in the PFB Vanish Ultra are salicylic acid and glycolic acid, which are great at preventing and treating ingrown hairs. They penetrate deeper into the pores to dislodge the paste-like combination of dead skin buildup and oil, resulting in fewer blockages. So, due to these properties, I did experience some peeling throughout the process. When that happened I moved my usage to once a day, which helped lessen it. But I honestly didn’t mind it since it was getting the job done!
As you can see from the photos, PFB Vanish is the truth and I know my bikini line is going to be cleared up in no time. I highly recommend their products!
