REVIEW: Hanamei's Hair Removal After-care Brightening Serum

I'm someone who thinks that other than what's on the head, hair should not exist at all. For both genders. But thank goodness for the evolution of hair removal methods. From shaving to waxing to epilation to laser hair removal, we can now kiss hairy issues goodbye, fast and easy.

But all things come with their downsides (Why won't life JUST be a bed of roses?!? Hur hur.). Abrasion of any sort on the skin will cause irritation and this can lead to the darkening of the skin, ingrown hair, bumps and inflammation. Very unsightly, very painful.

Last month, The Sample Store sent me Hanamei's Hair Removal After-care Brightening Serum to eliminate such problems!

The serum contains pure Japanese botanical extracts to tackle all the unwanted side-effects of hair removal. It contains no alcohol, artificial preservatives and colourants. It can be used down south, on our underarms, elbows... Basically, anywhere that has darkened and rough skin. Hanamei promises to

Maintain elasticity and resilience of skin.
Minimize ingrown hair.
Lighten darkened skin.

Also, it is gentle enough to be used right after hair removal!

Its key ingredients are

Sakura Extract: Moisturizes the skin.
Amurense Bark: Its anti-bacterial properties reduces the chances of follicle and pore infection.
Artichoke Extract: Reduces skin inflammation and minimizes itchiness.
Organic Rosewater: Calms the skin.
Aloe Vera Extract: Helps heal the skin.

Housed in a 20ml plastic bottle, it comes with a dropper. The dropper ensures that you get exactly what you need (I use 2 or 3 drops.). After cleansing, all you have to do is to rub this serum onto your skin.

The serum is a yellowish liquid with an alright smell. It's not pleasant but it's not stinky either. It is absorbed into the skin easily.

I have been using this serum for more than a month. I didn't see any brightening of the skin but I did experience less ingrown hair. Also, my skin feels more supple and moisturized. A pinky down for no brightening effect but one thumb up for less ingrown hair! (:

Orders for the serum can only be made via phone (6343 0157) or through their website at the moment. (:
