European Wax Center Treat Ingrown Hair Serum is the perfect product in your at home care for ingrown hairs. Most of us already know that exfoliating between waxing treatments helps to minimize ingrown hairs but this serum helps to elevate that step. Glycolic acid is a gentle exfoliant, lavender has soothing benefits, chamomile is an anti-inflammatory, and Vitamin E prevents irritation and adds hydration and all of that goodness is in this one product . This serum has a light scent and it absorbs quickly without feeling sticky. This product is gentle enough to be used anywhere on the... Read more

I appreciate what you said about this product

Finally!!!!
I’ve searched high and low for a product to help treat & prevent my pesky ingrowns I can’t seem to shake. The consistency of this serum is like a water gel, which I love because it soaks in the skin fast and dries with no stickiness. The smell is light and mild yet I definitely pick up on the glycolic acid scent, but I don’t mind it at all to me it smells like lemons. 😋
The ingredients are a dream team ingrown/bump buster. The glycolic acid is a super hero ingredient with its humectant properties helping with moisture... Read more

Great Review!

The frustration from dealing with ingrown hairs is real, y’all. They suck for everyone but are especially frustrating for darker skin tones. I am always on the hunt for a good serum to prevent and treat ingrown hairs. As an esthetician I know to avoid acids immediately after shaving. Although there are some wonderful soothing and hydrating ingredients in the product (i.e. lavender, vitamin E chamomile) glycolic is still an acid and, especially if you are sensitive, this could potentially cause irritation. As an esthetician I will recommend to be cautious when using this product after waxing. Inbetween treatments this... Read more

I love your insights!

As a former EWC employee, this is one of my favorite products! It’s tried and true and the results truly speak for themselves. It’s another must have product even if you only shave. Glycolic acid is one of my most favorite skin care ingredients and I love that it’s been formulated into an affordable and effective body and face serum. The consistency is so light and absorbent that it’s an easy step to add into your skin care routine. I wouldn’t say it’s necessary to use on your face everyday, but the bikini area, arms, underarms, or anywhere you consistently... Read more

Glad to know your experience

I shared this product with my 16-year-old daughter who is bi-racial and tends to get a lot of ingrown hairs in her bikini area. It's a painful nuisance, to be honest, and I asked her to use this for a couple of weeks and to give me feedback. The feedback was that she saw her ingrown hairs calm down, her skin was smoothed and soothed with ample hydration. She liked the soft aloe scent and said the product was easy to apply, absorbed quickly and the best part was her sensitive bits weren't on high alert. This... Read more

Nice to know about your experience.

First impressions: Again smells.. medicinal. Keep in mind that I have been a long-time user of EWC products because I used to work there. This product needs to be used long-term to see the benefits. There is no stickiness, it does not sting (which is my favorite part), it is the best ingrown hair serum for inflamed ingrown hairs!

How I use it: Right after a wax and for the week following my wax on clean skin. It is a serum so it goes under a lotion. It also helps your lotion penetrate deeper if you use this consistently. You should... Read more

Glad you liked it!

I love the packaging on the European Wax Center's ingrown hair serum, it looks super cute on my vanity and it's in my favorite color so that is a major plus. I also love the texture of this serum, it is very cooling and soothing. The scent is very light but it is very refreshing kind of like a minty scent. You only need a little of this product, applying too much will actually give a gel like texture with slight stickiness. I don't get many ingrowns but I do try to avoid them because they can get rather... Read more

Thank you for sharing your experience

This is my favorite EWC product by far. I struggle with ingrown hairs and razor burn (I know I need to get back to waxing) and this has helped tremendously. I put this on when I get out of the shower underneath my body lotion (I have also been using the EWC slow body lotion). This serum is meant to keep your skin bump free with ingredients such as glycolic acid and tea tree oil. Its alcohol free so it will not dry the skin out and it also includes lavender, vitamin E and chamomile which are all known to... Read more

Great Review!

For this product I experienced no negatives, I will however say that the benefits for it were nearly unnoticeable for me. Whether that is due to my own hair being frustratingly stubborn or the product I cannot be sure as I have not used any other product to fight ingrown hair before. I did not see any decrease in ingrown hairs but it did keep away the horrid bumps I always get from shaving and waxing, which I was of course happy with. The scent was a big plus for me as I love the earthy, natural smell of the... Read more

Thank you for sharing your experience

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the products sent to me from the European Wax Center, this ingrown hair serum unfortunately was not a good fit. I have had my legs, underarms and bikini area laser treated and only have to touch up bikini line infrequently. To test this for review, I did a bikini shave touch up and immediately had a stinging sensation. I reapplied over a few days several times hoping for relief but it didn’t happen. My skin and hair issues surrounding shaving or waxing are extremely sensitive that’s why I did laser treatments so long ago.... Read more
