Tend Skin Liquid was “discovered” by a dentist’s patient, has been available for years, and has a formula that has remained unchanged, which isn’t good news. It’s a toner-like product that contains a lot of isopropyl alcohol, which can be drying and irritating to skin (making it completely inappropriate as an after-shave or for soothing razor bumps). The ingredient that works to reduce the prevalence of ingrown hairs and bumpiness is aspirin (acetylsalicylate). Aspirin is indeed an effective anti-inflammatory and anti-itch agent when applied to skin, just as it is when consumed orally (Sources: Dermatology Nursing, August 2004, pages 325–328; Journal of Immunology, December 2002, pages 7063–7070; Acta-Dermato Venereologica, January 1997, pages 46–48; and Pain, September 1995, pages 339–347).
Effectively reduces the appearance of unsightly razor bumps. Regular application will reduce the appearance of existing ingrown hairs without tweezing. There is no other product that will reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs.
Isopropyl Alcohol, Water (reverse osmosis), Propylene Glycol, Acetylsalicylate, Glycerin, Cyclomethicone

Weakness: Tend Skin Liquid.
There isn't a whole lot to Tend Skin because they sell only two products, one a plus and one a minus. Perhaps the most stunning comment is the fact that their namesake product, meant to soothe freshly shaved and irritated skin, carries a warning that it is flammable because of its alcohol content! That makes me burn just thinking about it!

I use it on my face when I get my sideburn area waxed. It does sting a little when applied (probably because of the alcohol content) but it goes away. It really does help lift those little hairs that get trapped under the skin and is a good preventative measure. Only use a little bit at a time! It can dry out your skin if you use too much and definitely wash your hands after (it made my fingers feel dry). I wish they had a sample size though so people can try and see if it irritates your skin
This product may have skin unfriendly ingredients but I decided to try it out of desperation and as a last resort for the ingrown hairs on my bikini line.
I had tried everything I could find including using paulas bha which is great by the way but not too effective on the ingrown hairs.
I tried this and didn't notice too much difference at first but after a month my bikini line is clear.
Can't argue with the results plus you get a lot of product for the money.
I struggled with ingrown hairs for years, and thought Tend would help. I used it faithfully for about week each time I did my legs and/or bikini area with an epilator. There was no change in the frequency of bumps/ingrown hairs, and my legs and hands got extremely dry, to the point of flakiness. This happened each time I went through a cycle of using Tend. I wish I'd seen this review first. Paula's Choice Skin Relief Treatment worked much better, though I still get some bumps.
I have been using tend skin for years! I get ingrown hairs in underarms, bikini and legs. I use tend skin on underarms and bikini EVERY time after my shower. I use the rollerball applicator. I have not had an ingrown, red rash, itchiness or irritation ONCE since using this everyday.This products has been such a life saver in those bikini moments.
