I'm either a genius or I just have a stupid idea.

It sounds crazy. I bought my now ex bf this Barber501 shaving booster balm with cica (centella). I've been patch testing it on the backs of my hands and they're like ridiculously much smoother... My question, would using it on my face be a bad idea? And if it's ok, do I wash it off?

If this can be applied on a man's face, I don't see why it couldn't be applied on a woman's. I would give it a try 😊

thank you ❣️ I did last night actually and where I went wrong is not washing it off my face (I'm disabled and face wash leads to lap puddles for me, I'm not just being lazy) and using the Touch in Sol no poreblem primer because that's like oily based too and the first few pumps have been nothing but oil too πŸ₯΄ I didn't get another pimple yet though πŸ™ŒπŸ½

I think that some gendered products are for marketing purposes and can work for everyone. you may be able to use it for areas you shave but it’s best to patch test first

Always patch test, you can use it in the back of your ear or the back of your arm and see if it reacts, usually that skin is similar to the face

Well in my opinion if you have sensitive skin than no because it can iritate your skin very bad.⭐️

I do not have sensitive skin but my skin barrier needs reconstructive surgery it's so bad πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I just thought it's basically the Vaseline method plus another ingredient I keep hearing about... they also had a vitamin one, a tea tree one, a charcoal one and some peppermint one I am so not interested in I didn't even want to mention it lol

ok, fair enough, why not though? I'm really just looking for something that'll help my skin barrier out. should I just use regular Vaseline then? I am bothered by the fact I can't read the ingredient list πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
