Shaving can cause havoc on your face if you have sensitive skin. Razor burn, cuts and ingrown hairs are just some of the possible consequences of shaving. Luckily, shaving is not the only way to get rid of beards. Facial hair removal creams for men can also provide smooth skin without causing nicks, cuts or irritation.
Formula 103 Extra Strength Facial Hair Removal Cream
Formula 103 Extra Strength Facial Hair Removal Cream removes facial hair without the need for shaving, according to Formula 103's website, F103Club.com. The cream was designed specifically with African-American men in mind. According to the website, Formula 103 softens and dissolves hair without affecting the root, and acts as a moisturizer to reduce the amount of irritation that causes bumps, a common problem for many African-American men. Formula 103 ingredients include herbal extracts as well as chemical ingredients, such as sodium hydroxide. If you have never used Formula 103 before, perform a patch test, applying the cream to a small area on your face. If any irritation occurs, discontinue using the product.
