bush balm is an Ottawa-based small business that sells skin care products that help reduce razor burn, prevent ingrown hair, treat age spots, and more.
My colleague Katie Herman uses this to keep her hair smooth after she shaves.
“Just recently received a sample of this lovely product from a small business based in Ottawa. I can already see the difference in how my bikini line looks after shaving. I always struggle with razor bumps, especially on my lower body, and this oil helps keep my skin soft, smooth, and bump-free. The brand recommends using it immediately after getting out of the shower, and it can also be used to spot treat ingrown hairs. I’m quite sensitive to smells, but the tea tree scent is really nice and refreshing (it smells like a spa)! I also like the pump dispenser, so it doesn’t make a greasy mess every time I use it. From now on, you will almost always use oil stains. I’m really looking forward to being able to wear a bathing suit this summer without bumping or getting frustrated!”
