Bushbalm vs. Tend Skin: Which Ingrown Hair Oil is Best?

I do my best to exfoliate and I almost always use shaving cream and a fresh razor to shave. But occasionally, I slip up and that’s when my sensitive skin throws a fit. It sends up angry, red bumps and itchy spots that ruin my day. In the past, I’ve turned to Tend Skin because it was what was available at the drugstore and it worked.

But lately, I’ve been turning to Bushbalm’s Nude Ingrown Hair Oil that’s just as effective but offers a different experience. Here’s how the two ingrown hair oils compare:

The cleanest…Bushbalm

Being aware of what you put on your skin is essential, especially when it comes to the most sensitive and intimate areas. Bushbalm’s Nude Ingrown Hair Oil is made with all-natural ingredients like jojoba seed oil, tea tree oil, copaiba balsam oil, and grapeseed oil that make me feel good about what I’m putting on my skin. On the other hand, Tend Skin ingredients include scary and unpronounceable things like isopropyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Acetylsalicylic Acid, Cyclomethicone, Glycerin, Diglycerin, and Polysorbate 80. If I can’t pronounce it, it’s not going near me!

The gentlest…Bushbalm

Bushbalm is specially formulated to work with all skin types, including sensitive ones like mine. That’s why whenever I use my Nude Oil, my skin feels hydrated, soothed, and smoothed. However, Tend Skin BURNS - so much so that I have found myself doubled over in pain waiting for it to pass.

The best-smelling…Bushbalm

Bushbalm’s Nude Oil smells like a spa day! The scent is pleasant and subdued and natural, while Tend Skin basically smells like straight alcohol. Given the choice between smelling like a spa or reliving my college frat parties during my skincare routine, I choose spa.

The most accessible…Tend Skin

Although weak in other categories, Tend Skin takes the cake for accessibility. Bushbalm is available for purchase straight from their site, but Tend Skin is conveniently available in-person and online at many major retailers like Target, Amazon, and Bed Bath and Beyond.

The winner…It’s Gotta Be Bushbalm

Natural, clean, gentle, and smells amazing – what more could you ask for! I thought to treat ingrown hair and nasty bumps, I needed something strong that burned. But BushBalm’s Nude Oil has shown me that it can be a luxurious experience instead.
