For me, this refreshing gel came into its own after hair removal as it cools the skin after both waxing and shaving magnificently without causing irritation. It's a really effective anti-inflammatory too and brings down any redness, lumps and bumps. The consistency is quite runny which adds to the refreshing feel on the skin but I'm not sure I'd use it for its moisturising properties alone.
If you are going to use it after hair removal, always do a patch test first to avoid any skin sensitivity.
So what's in it? Well it's enriched with liquorice extract, caffeine and horse chestnut seed extract, a combination of natural active ingredients which is said to slow down hair growth by inhibiting hair cells.
Has is worked? Well I've been slathering it on for a month now to give it a fair test and even though it is early days, I'd say I think I can see a slight reduction in hair growth. I'd say it's well worth buying as an effective post-hair removal gel alone, or if you suffer from ingrowing hairs, then if you do get the added benefit of less hair too, it's happy days!
