Hair Care Down There is an e-commerce beauty company that creates products exclusively for pubic hair grooming. They recently relaunched their flagship product, The Ultimate Shaving Kit, in time for summer. The kit won the “Cosmopolitan’s Beauty Award for the Best Bikini-line Beautifier”. The formulas, Shave, Soothe & Smooth, were designed by a woman chemist to eliminate the rashes, ingrown hair, bumps and itching that some people experience after they groom their pubic hair.
The first thing I noticed when I received The Ultimate Shaving Kit, a Hair Care Down There exclusive, was the cute waterproof aqua carry-all case. The case keeps the pubic hair grooming formulas and tools discreetly stored between uses and there are extra pockets if you want to add some of your own beauty supplies.
Inside the case I found:
* A style guide.
* The three signature products: Shave, Soothe & Smooth.
* Round-tipped safety scissors with a rubber grip.
* Lightweight and narrow cartridge razor.
* 2-sided magnifying mirror.
* Brush and comb.
* Heart and landing strip stencils and stencil pencil.
* Decorative bindi adhesive jewels to enhance your design.
I was nervous about using the kit for my first bikini shave but I read the instruction guide that explained how to use the formulas and tools. The included tips and color pictures of the various styles of pubic hair grooming were very helpful.
By using the three gentle formulas made for pubic hair I discovered that I need not fear nicks, cuts or ingrown hair. The Shave, Soothe & Smooth products are a clear shaving gel (so you can see where you are shaving), a spray that prevents itching and rashes and an aloe and green tea moisturizer to keep skin smooth. These products can be reordered separately so that I restock the kit anytime.
The instructions were very easy to follow and the products did not sting or burn my skin. If you’re like me you’ll start out with a conservative bikini shave and progress to creative designs and bindi jewels when you grow more confident.
My fear of shaving my bikini area was completely unfounded. Hair Care Down There made it simple and safe. I highly recommend The Ultimate Shaving Kit for novices and those who are experienced in pubic hair grooming. It is wonderful to have everything you need all in one place and with a carry case that I will take with me when I travel.
