The only thing less sexy than an Amazonian bush during bikini season is the horrifically embarrassing bumps known as ingrown hairs that can be left behind after grooming below the belt. (Sorry, Dad. TMI?)

When I go in for my Brazilian beauty treatment, I often shrug off the “add-on’s” they push on you at the end. How many different swipes and pads and lotions and potions does one need for her nether regions? Well, a couple of waxes ago, I was swayed and I decided to test out PFB Vanish… mostly because I was sort of obsessed with my esthetician and would have believed anything she told me and also because it was a very simple bottle. It looked fairly straightforward– and I like straightforward.

Basically, it’s a roll-on that you apply after showers (more or less frequently depending on how sensitive your skin is) that will prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. One reason it’s awesome? You never have to touch the “solution” with your hands. This particular application is very no fuss no muss. I also noticed a serious difference by using it every other day. I had far fewer ingrown hairs and this may be totally unrelated, but I actually think my hair has taken longer to grow back.

There are really only a few things you can do to prevent ingrown hairs in the first place, so listen up:

  • Exfoliate!! Be sure to do a little scrub-a-roo in this region when bathing.
  • Use a product with salicylic or glycolic acid (that’s where PFB comes in).
  • Do NOT pick at those pesky bumps. This area is sensitive and picking can cause infection and even scarring.

Looks like smooth sailing to me!
