Our Holiday Gift Guide, 2020 Edition.

Our Holiday Gift Guide, 2020 Edition.

Natural Skincare gifts for everywhere and everyone.

The holiday season is quickly approaching, meaning it’s time to make a list, add Bushbalm twice, and decide whose been naughty or nice. Given the year we have all lived through, and thinking about how different the holidays will look, any self-care gift for yourself or others seems like a no brainer. Plus, skincare is a gift that keeps on giving. Not only are you reminding someone to take care of themselves, you're also contributing to their healthy skin which will last much longer than an assorted box of chocolates.

So, here's your one-stop-shop holiday gift guide to cross everyone (including yourself!) off that list.

1) Sweet Escape Hydrating Oil
Okay, so maybe you can't gift a loved one that vacation they so desperately need this year. What you can do is gift them a quick Sweet Escape for post-shower, and help them say goodbye to ingrown hairs and keep them smelling like a tropical island all winter long.

 



2) Nude Oil
Who doesn't want soft, smooth, bump-free, healthy skin, everywhere? Let's face it, everyone gets razor burn and ingrown hairs in the worst places. Thinking underarm ingrown hairs, bikini line ingrown hairs, etc. Nude Oil is our signature oil that is perfect for any skincare enthusiast in your life who thinks they have their routine locked and loaded. Wait until you introduce them to skincare for everywhere, including down there! *Mind blown*

 


3) Pumpkin Spice Pubic Oil
Know someone that is a sucker for luxurious smelling fragrances and packaging? Or someone who is a Starbucks PSL fanatic? This anti-inflammatory oil will help reduce redness, treat ingrown hairs, and keep both skin and hair soft. The benefits and smell alone make this oil the perfect unexpected present under the Christmas tree this year.

 



4) Bermuda Oil
Just go ahead and call yourself Santa because this oil is literally going to change the gift receiver's skin. Know someone who struggles with dark spots in sensitive areas, or has scarring from hair removal? This oil is literally magical, or shall we say - a Christmas miracle.


5) Nude Body Polish Scrub
Do you or someone you know live for their bath time ritual? If the answer is yes, then our Nude exfoliating scrub is the gift for them. Our Nude Exfoliating Scrub is gentle on sensitive areas and will leave you glowing after you are done in the bathtub. This scrub is oil-based so the texture is super soft but still powerful enough to remove all unwanted baggage aka your dead skin.


6) Nordic Dry Brush
Dry brushing is an essential energizing skin-detox step that you should definitely add to your weekly routine if you have not already. You use it on dry skin, before your shower or bath, one or two times a week. It's a great addition for anyone looking to step up their self-care routine.

 



Oops - did we just convince you to buy a 100% natural oil, body polish scrub, and a dry brush? No worries! We have the ultimate bundle available for the holidays. Add this Essential Bikini Line Kit to your cart, and get it under that tree. Your friends and family will thank you later.

 

Biggest Sale of the Year - Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Biggest Sale of the Year - Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Mark your calendars because Bushbalm’s biggest sale of the year is officially happening!

Our biggest sale ever is happening this year for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This Black Friday, it’s not just faves like Nude Oil and our Discovery and Travel Kit that will be heavily discounted. Our entire product line will be 30% off for this week-long shopping event.


We know things will be different this season (thanks, COVID-19), and the holidays may feel a little strange with everyone staying at home. One thing that we can look forward to is taking more time for self care, and getting ahead of gift giving and saving at the same time! 


With so many great steals, it’s hard to know where to begin on the biggest online shopping day of the year, so we’ve put together a few tips to help.


  1. Stock up.  30% off is as good as it’s going to get. If you’ve already included Bushbalm in your daily skincare, our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale is the time to save and stock up on your favorite products to last you throughout the year.
  2. Treat yourself.  With these types of savings, there should be zero guilt associated with buying yourself your favorite skincare products that will soften both hair and skin, soothe razor burn, and prevent ingrown hairs.
  3. Gift giving.  Introduce your family and friends to skincare everywhere. They'll never look back and you'll look like a hero for helping them prevent ingrown hairs. 

 

Ugh…ingrown hairs, they’re the pits!

Ugh…ingrown hairs, they’re the pits!

Let’s face it, ingrown hairs happen and they can happen on any part of your body that grows hair. Your underarm area is a very common place to get ingrown hairs.

 

Every time you remove hair from your armpit you increase your likelihood of newly cut hair re-entering the skin instead of growing out. This as a result will create small painful bumps in the armpit, that could feel like a lump in your underarm. Friction from working out, changing clothes, or simply just moving your arms around causes your shirt to rub against your skin and/or ingrown armpit hair, leading to irritation. Sometimes, applying deodorant, especially after shaving, waxing, sugaring, or laser treatment, can clog your pores which can also lead to ingrown hairs in your armpits.

 

So, what can we do to stop ingrown hairs in our armpits? Sure, our 100% natural oils can help with ingrown hair treatment and razor burn, but would you not rather prevent them entirely? If the answer is yes, then follow our recommended skincare routine to prevent underarm irritation below: 

  1. Exfoliate with one of our body polish scrubs (Nude or Sweet Escape) twice a week.
  2. Apply one of our 100% natural ingrown hair oils daily.
  3. You’ll need 1 to 2 drops of the oil to massage into your underarm area.
  4. For best results, apply the oil within the first two minutes of getting out of the shower.

Let's keep our underarms smooth and bump free! Have any questions? Reach out to team@mybushbalm.com, we'd be happy to assist.
