Bump Stopper 2 - Does a splendid job with taking care of razor bumps
Jul 7, 2011
I don't have fine hair and I some times suffer from razor bumps when I decide to shave after days of not doing it. I've been using Bump Stopper now for probably about 10 years, and I haven't bothered with anything else ever. I used other ointments for razor bumps but nothing else gave me results like this.
Bump Stopper is a cream that comes in a small container that is easy to open by twisting off the cap, and you apply it with your fingers. The cream has a brown color but little to no smell. The container can be resealed with the top and it has a very long shelf life. This is the listing on the package for the cream:
-Reduces bumps and ingrown hairs from shaving
-Concentrated cream formula works to keep hair exposed
-Designed for use with manual razors, electric razors, and depilatories
- Apply after shaving and again at night
The cream lasts me for a long time, sometimes a few months because I don't suffer from razor bumps that much. But when I do, either me or my lady will use tweezers to remove the ingrown hairs. Immediately, I'll apply the cream and use it as directed. The directions state to use it twice daily and after shaving in affected areas. I've used it on the back of my neck right underneath the hair line after getting a haircut, and it always took care of those bumps as well. The cream doesn't burn or anything like that. After awhile you'll forget it's there.
The first problem I can think of is applying the cream before going to work. When I use to work for an employer, I would shave at night before going to bed, and use the cream then, so I didn't have all of these brown spots on my face. The second problem could be those who don't have anyone to use tweezers on them for those hard to reach places. I know what it's like to not be able to reach the back of the neck, but I have applied the cream to areas without pulling out the hairs. It still worked but it took awhile longer.
The cream helps heal the bumps well, and I don't have any blemishes as a result of the bumps. I have heard mixed results about this cream. All I can say is that it has been the only razor bump cream I been using for a very long time. If anyone knows something better or close to it; then fill me in. But if you're suffering from razor bumps then you should try this.
Pros: -Takes care of razor bumps -Easy to apply
Cons: -Works best only after removing hairs -Stands out in public
