My husband get razor bumps and ingrown hairs every time he shaves. Because of this we have spent quite a bit on Tend Skin. It comes in a blue bottle and helps with ingrown hairs and razor bumps. It works very well, but keeps getting more and more expensive. I checked the price on sephora.com a few days ago and a 2.5 oz bottle costs $17!! That's before shipping and tax! That teeny bottle only last him about a week. The yearly cost would be $884 not including tax or shipping! Crazy huh?
While I was searching for the price I came across a homemade recipe comparable to Tend Skin. I already had the ingredients on hand so I tried it out. It works just as good for my husband and I use it as well for breakouts. We both use it twice a day and will NEVER buy another bottle of Tend Skin again!
This video is my 2nd batch, take a glance...
18 Aspirin tablets, crushed
5 oz Rubbing Alcohol
8 Aspirin tablets, crushed
2.5 oz Witch Hazel
Mix the two solutions.
Shake before each use.
Tend Skin 2.5oz $17 ($884/year)
Homemade 48oz $10.06/year
One 180 ct CVS Aspirin $.99
Two 16 oz CVS Rubbing Alcohol $2.19 each = $4.39
One 16 oz CVS Witch Hazel $4.69
This is enough to make 6 batches, 7.5 oz each, total 45 oz.
Each batch will last one person using it twice a day for 2 months.
So $10.06 for an entire years worth of your homemade product.
That's an $874 savings per year, 99%!!
PLUS, you can always get aspirin on sale with coupons to save even more!
