Just – shhh. I know what you might be thinking. Hear me out before you start talking again.
Pubic hair oil? Sounds gross? Well…it shouldn’t! Not if you take proper care of yours, that is (however little or much you may have).
Sounds familiar? It should! Fur Oil has a lot of hype on social media & has been featured in various magazines, interviews, & even videos like Buzzfeed’s famous “Ladylike” (watch them test out Fur for a week here)
Alright, now that we’ve stopped laughing about pubic hair, let’s talk a little bit about Fur Oil & what it actually does.
First off, this product is 100% organic – which is good. Organic is good as a general rule but is even better when it’s going near your sensitive nether regions.
The key ingredients in Fur Oil are grape seed & jojoba oils (dry oils that contain Vitamin A & E to soften/condition hair); tea tree oil (clarifying: it helps clear pores which minimizes ingrown hairs); & clary sage seed oil (healing properties that will soothe & reduce inflammation for healthier skin over time).
According to Fur’s website, “Fur Oil’s unique blend of lightweight oils softens pubic hair and clears pores for fewer ingrowns and healthier skin. The 100% natural formula can be used as frequently as desired to enhance pubic hair and skin, and is also suitable for use on the face and body.” It is suggested you use it once daily as part of your regimen (ideally after showering).
Did you notice “suitable for use on the face & body?” Yup! Fur Oil is 100% organic, contains no dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens, silicone, & is not tested on animals – I think it’s safe to say that this can absolutely be used on other areas of the body as well. Fur says “also great for legs, underarms, chest, beard, and anywhere hair meets skin.”
Does using Fur Oil mean that you have to go happy hippy & shave absolutely nothing? Ever again? No, of course not. Let me explain my primary reason for being so interested in Fur Oil: ingrown hairs.
Ingrown hairs can be a mild inconvienience. They can also be a big pain in the ass – or a big painful infection, depending on how healthy (or unhealthy) you are. As an immunosuppressed person, I have to take extra care to use clean, new razors, disinfect things like tweezers & nail clippers, &, yes, watch out for ingrown hairs – whether they’re under my brows, on my legs, or under my arms. Or elsewhere.
You get my point, though! Sure, you can use Fur Oil as a conditioner/moisturizer for your body hair. You can also use it after shaving – to prevent ingrown hairs & inflammation. Like Fur claims, this truly is a multi-purpose oil.
$44 for 2.5 fl. oz. Cheap? No. But the product will last you 6 months, according to the site. It’s cruelty-free, approved by dermatologists & gynecologists. So far, so good. I’ve been doing what Emma Watson recommends [in her interview with Into the Gloss]: “I’ll use that anywhere from the ends of my hair to my eyebrows to my pubic hair. It’s an amazing all-purpose product.”
So – oil for your pubic hair? Sure! You’ll be softer, shinier, less irritated.
Oil for your eyebrows? Yup! Again – softer, shinier, less irritated.
Or, try using it under your arms after shaving (before deodorant). Your ingrown hairs will be gone, & your tired, tired skin will thank you. Trust me.
Plus – yeah, I’ll say it – the bottle looks amazing on my windowsill. & yes…it is very Instagrammable. You can’t say that for a lot of pubic hair products out there on the market, can you?
