Tend Skin vs. The Cut Buddy’s Aftershave and Shaving Cream for Ingrown Hairs

Posted by Joshua Esnard on

Ingrown hairs and razor bumps can be a huge pain – both literally and figuratively. Luckily, more products have been developed in recent years to combat the pesky bumps, including various types of aftershave for ingrown hairs. But with so many options available, how do you know which products work the best?

Ingrown Hair Solution Comparison

In this post, we’ll be comparing products from two popular brands that offer ingrown hair treatment solutions: Tend Skin and The Cut Buddy. We’ll study their options for shaving cream for ingrown hairs and aftershave solutions, and compare and contrast them to determine which company comes out on top. Let’s take a look at four products:

1. Tend Skin Solution

Tend Skin's flagship product is its Tend Skin Solution. This liquid formula is designed to exfoliate the skin, unclog hair follicles, and reduce inflammation. It's formulated with ingredients like salicylic acid, which helps to gently exfoliate the skin and prevent new ingrown hairs from forming. Users are encouraged to apply a thin coat of the solution after they’ve shaved and dried their skin.

If you’re already dealing with existing ingrown hairs or razor bumps, the solution can be applied at night as well, even if you haven’t shaved. This is supposed to help clear existing ingrown hairs or bumps. Once the skin is clear, you should begin reducing use to once a day, only after shaving. Additionally, the Tend Skin Solution can be used for pre and post-waxing; applying it before waxing can ease the wax pull and minimize how much the hot wax sticks to the skin.

2. The Cut Buddy Shaving Cream – Soothing Foaming Solution 

The Cut Buddy Shaving Cream is designed to make shaving easier for all, but particularly for those with coarse hair. Its unique foaming formula is crafted with jojoba, willow bark, eucalyptus, and tea tree, which creates a soothing, cooling sensation on the skin while providing your shaver or razor with a smooth surface to glide across.

Additionally, this shaving cream doubles as a pre-shave exfoliator and a skin hydrator, working to remove unwanted dead skin before the shaving process begins. This helps prevent irritation and infection, providing the user with a comfortable shaving experience without ingrown hairs.

3. The Cut Buddy Shaving Cream – Hair and Irritation Defense

This is an alternative option for shaving cream from The Cut Buddy and features many of the same properties as the Soothing Foaming Solution. The Hair and Irritation Defense shaving cream is made with willow bark, jojoba, tea tree, and eucalyptus, allowing it to provide a cooling sensation for the skin and a smooth area for the shaver or razor to glide on.

Like the Soothing Foaming Solution, this shaving cream also doubles as an exfoliator and skin hydrator. The only difference is that this version of the shaving cream does not feature a foaming formula – instead, the product remains in its cream consistency throughout use.

4. The Cut Buddy After Shave Solution – Ingrown Hair and Irritation Combat

The last Cut Buddy product we’re going to highlight is the aftershave solution. This product reduces the pain and annoyance that can occur with ingrown hairs, razor bumps, or shaving irritation. This innovative formula is crafted with soothing natural chemical compounds that work to reduce irritation on all skin surfaces, from shaved faces and legs to arms, torsos, and even bikini lines. To use it, all you have to do is spray the solution onto a dry, freshly-shaved area or on any irritated area.

Additional benefits to this aftershave solution include its fresh citrus scent, cooling/numbing finish, and pore-tightening properties. The product is also master barber-approved and made using cruelty-free vegan ingredients. For best results, it’s recommended users store the bottle of solution in the refrigerator so it can remain at its ideal temperature.

Results: Tend Skin or The Cut Buddy?

As you can see, both Tend Skin and The Cut Buddy have valuable products that seem to make a real difference for people dealing with ingrown hairs. However, where Tend Skin falls short is its lack of additional options. Beyond their ingrown hair solution, they don’t offer much more to choose from. However, here at The Cut Buddy, we have three different products designed to combat painful irritation and ingrown hairs. Our aftershave for ingrown hairs reduces the annoyance of razor bumps, ingrown hair, and irritation from shaving with a razor or shaver, hair removal techniques, and waxing. Additionally, our shaving cream options fight razor bumps and irritation from the beginning, to stop them from forming in the first place.

To us, the choice is clear – The Cut Buddy reigns supreme, offering numerous different products for fighting ingrown hairs and razor bumps. If you’re looking for a new brand to add to your shaving routine lineup, The Cut Buddy is the way to go.
