Sonicsmooth - Why is this better than a man's razor?Updated 2 years ago

Women tend to get ingrown hairs from shaving their face with a razor with more than one edge. The first two blades are dull on a two or three-bladed razor. Their purpose is to snag and pull the hair taut so that when the 3rd blade cuts the hair, it can then snap back below the skin's surface, providing a smooth, hair-free complexion. Multiple blades are ideal for men's thicker, coarser hair but a problem for women.  

When a man's hair is shaved with a 2 or 3 blade razor and grows back, it's coarse and strong, so it can push its way to the surface without getting caught below. A woman's hair is very fine so shaving it with a 2 or 3 blade razor, the cut hair snaps back below the surface, but it is not coarse or strong, and it often gets trapped below the skin's surface as it grows back.  

Sonicsmooth is an ideal solution for women who have previously tried to shave their face and have gotten ingrown hairs. If you are prone to ingrown hair, exfoliating the skin lightly with our Soniclear Petite a couple of days prior and a day or two after will help.
