I’m not afraid to admit it: I won’t shave unless it’s absolutely necessary. I like smooth, hairless skin as much as the next skirt-wearer, but I hate bumpy irritation that much more. And for whatever reason, I’m especially prone to it. I’ve tried almost everything-women’s and men’s products alike-and I’ve been utterly unsatisfied with the results.
But when The Cool Fix, by new unisex brand Shaveworks, showed up on my desk, there was just something about the the chicly-bottled blue goo that I knew would be my breakthrough.
This clever concoction solves post-shave woes in two ways. First, it instantly soothes skin with a botanical moisturizing complex that, unlike other so-called solutions, doesn’t sting freshly shorn skin. That’s largely due to a lack of alcohol, which can dry out and further irritate skin. Secondly, it zaps follicle-clogging bacteria and provides essential exfoliation with glycolic, salicylic and phytic acids, so ingrown hairs are freed and prevented. These alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids even help lighten up the areas that have been discolored by infection.
While you use it on your legs, bikini area and underarms, the man in your life-and in your bathroom-can benefit from The Cool Fix by using it on his face and neck. Living alone has never felt so lucky, however, because I don’t have to share it with anyone!
