FAQ

Hair removal is definitely not one-size-fits all. Every girl needs to find the method that works best for her. So get ready to do a little homework. It’s also not a bad idea to try each method at least once to figure out which one you’re most comfortable with. Some girls use several methods, maybe choosing to wax one body part and shave another. The Bikini Zone collection includes the Anti-Bumps Shave Gel and the Crème Hair Remover depilatory. Always remember that a little prep work goes a long way. 

Shaving with a razor cuts the hair right at skin level, leaving you smooth for a few days. Shaving gels can be used on the sensitive areas where you’re shaving because they get hair to stand up for a closer shave. They also help keep your skin free from nicks and cuts. So if you don’t mind spending a few extra minutes in the shower, shaving is a great way to go.

A razor with 4 blades or more will provide you with the closest and smoothest shave. If you have sensitive skin look for a razor with stainless steel blades to ensure they are hypoallergenic. Some razors come with a built in lubricated strip to moisturize the skin while shaving. For those who do not prefer razors, the Bikini Zone Crème Hair Remover is a no-shave depilatory for a longer lasting smooth hair removal. 

This routine typically depends on the person. Most commonly we are told to shave against the hair growth. However, if you are more prone to ingrown hairs shaving against the growth can nick the follicle which almost always leaves a red bump. If at any point a red bump occurs, the Bikini Zone Medicated Crème/Gel are the instant solutions to any unexpected bumps or irritation. 

Yes, exfoliation is the perfect way to prep your skin between shaving and other hair removal methods because it helps to scrub away dead skin cells that leads to annoying ingrown hairs. Our Bikini Zone Exfoliating Gel is a sensitive formula targeted for the bikini area that contains natural fruit extracts and gives you the sensation of sloughing off your dead skin cells upon use.

The Bikini Zone Medicated Gel & Crème are specially formulated to provide fast relief from razor bumps and irritation after shaving, waxing or depilating. Shaving should be done with a product targeted for the bikini area with extra moisturizers, as in our Bikini Zone Anti-Bumps Shave Gel.

Ingrown hairs often appear on the underarms, legs, and bikini area in women. They can be prevented by exfoliating with our Bikini Zone Exfoliating Gel to get rid of the top layer of dead skin cells. Another method is to use our ingrown hair specific ‘post-shave’ product. Our Bikini Zone Ingrown Hair Relief Padsare soaked with salicylic acid, glycolic acid and witch hazel to help unclog pores and prevent ingrown hairs.

No, shaving does not increase hair thickness or its growth rate. Use the Bikini Zone Hair Growth Inhibitor to reduce the thickness and/or regrowth of unwanted hair after shaving or waxing. 

Hyper pigmentation is a result of irritation and inflammation in the hair removal region. Some best practices to prevent this are to make sure the area is moist before shaving. Post-shaving, treat the area with a moisturizer. 

Shaving creams are used to lather the shave area and encourage a smooth glide and shave. Shave gels provide the same moisturizing benefits and added benefits for the bikini area. The Bikini Zone Anti-Bumps Shave Gel is a clear, blue gel in order to help with shaving visibility in sensitive areas.

Waxing is a method of hair removal that involves applying a thin layer of heated wax directly to the skin; you may also use cold wax strip. When the product is applied as directed, the wax and strip will grab the unwanted hair. The strip is then pulled off in one quick motion. The best part about waxing is that it removes hair from the root, leaving your skin smooth for up to eight weeks. Waxing can be used on almost any body part, including the bikini area, upper lip, chin, brow and legs.

A depilatory is any cream or liquid you apply to your skin to remove unwanted hair. The Bikini Zone Crème Hair Remover is a depilatory with a sensitive formula for a consistently safe and smooth hair removal. The Crème Hair Remover does not have the chemical scent of other depilatories and is more pleasant to use.

No, it doesn’t “burn” the hair off. Actually, a depilatory breaks down the proteins within hairs causing them to break just below skin level. The Bikini Zone Crème Hair Remover contains a gentle formula that protects your skin.

You simply apply the depilatory to your skin, give it a few minutes to do its thing, and then gently wipe it off with a damp cloth. Just be sure of two things: that your skin is free from nicks and cuts and that you apply the depilatory evenly – DO NOT rub it in.

Certain depilatories are targeted for specific areas of the body. The Bikini Zone Crème Hair Remover was developed for the sensitive bikini area or any other sensitive areas that you wish to remove hair from. It should not be used anywhere on your face.
