Little bite... but works great Review by Sean
It just works. If you have an ingrown hair you've just pulled out, it will provide a bit of a bite at that spot; which is to be expected. It does do a great job making it much easier to get ingrown hairs to the surface and also to reduce their frequency. Great product.
Works. Review by Mike
I have been looking for what seems like forever for an ingrown hair treatment that works. This stuff is it. I will say though that making the transition to DE shaving has also helped (once I got past the initial learning curve). I do think this product is a little pricey, but it really seems to be working. I definitely would not have left a review if I didn't think the product was worth it.
Best stuff on this site. Review by Josh
Been shaving my head for years and this stuff has been a game changer. Red bumps are gone. Totally gone. And a little goes a long way. Also works great on face, neck & other shaved areas.
Great stuff. Pricey but worth the money.
The Best! Review by Adam
Proper technique + this = no razor burn. (Also a good scrub...and I use this a bit more than recommended...but still awesome!)
Quite effective Review by Michael
Previously I had lots of little red bumps from ingrowns; they were both annoying and quite unattractive.
I saw substantial improvement after using this product semi-regularly (every 2-3 days) for about 2-3 weeks. I don't know quite how it works, but it does. I'd definitely recommend buying a bottle and trying it out. Trying something once never hurt anyone.
My other advice: NEVER ever ever shave against the grain of your hairs. I've seen this advice around the internet and it seems to be true. By only shaving with the grain (or across the grain) I also reduced the number of ingrowns I'd get for both facial hair and chest/stomach hair.
FYI: Assume that all your hair grows downwards on your face. Shaving upwards is considered "against" the grain, shaving downwards is "with" the grain, and shaving to the left or right is "across" the grain.

Previously I had lots little red bumps that come from ingrown hairs. They were both annoying and also somewhat ugly.
In the beginning I used this product semi-regularly (every 2-3 days) and after about 2 weeks I saw some substantial improvement. I'd definitely recommend buying a bottle and trying it for yourself.
My other advice is about shaving technique: NEVER ever ever shave against the grain!! I've seen this advice across the internet, and it seems to be true. Yes, shaving against the grain gave me a closer shave, but it also drastically increased my number of ingrowns (both facial hair and chest/stomach hair). By only shaving with the grain (or across the grain) I also cut-down my rate of ingrowns, even without this product.
Not a miracle cure, but excellent. Review by Stephane
This wasn't the miracle cure that I was looking for but it does work very well. As an aftershave, it works but not as well as "real" aftershaves. Compared to the cool fix, I found this to be better at treating ingrown hairs but I found to the cool fix to be a better overall after shave. This didn't irritate my skin or sting whatsoever so that is a plus.
Awesome Product Review by Jeff
Being a young african american male in the military, I have to stay clean cut at all times, I would break out every now and then from ingrown hairs being stuck but after a bit of exfoliating with Kyoku for Men Exfoliating Facial Scrub and applying the light green gel which is pretty much unnoticeable. No smell as far as I can tell and it goes on really well. Ive noticed my face become a lot clearer and manageable. I love this product.
Great Review by AC
I switched to AL after using bump patrol for a while. First and foremost it is very effective and has virtually eliminated all razor burn/irritation. What I love even more though is it's much easier to apply than other after shave products I've tried. It's worth three times what I paid. Will be buying more for sure.
This stuff is the stuff you are looking for! Review by David
I have been plague my entire life with ingrown hairs and bumps. This stuff is great. After 2 weeks of twice a day treatment ingrown hairs were gone. Now I use it after shaving ( well shave then shower then stuff). once a day and have not seen ingrown hairs or the acne they brought since.
You will see some reports of sting, but it is not worse than any aftershave products.
It has a slight clean smell, but you can easily use Cologne or aftershave over it with no intermingling.
