If you’re like me, then you have better things to do than shave your package. So, when I had the chance to review a product that can supposedly inhibit hair growth, I jumped on it. If this stuff could cut down on the need to shave my pubic hair then I might be a customer for life!
It’s called StopGrow, and while it has some good qualities, it also seems somewhat less than effective. After more than two weeks of use I see no reduction in hair re-growth and basically no difference at all.
Stop-Grow is marketed as a hair growth inhibiting cream that you apply twice per day to the desired area. It’s designed to slow the growth of body hair without the use of harsh chemicals, and repeated shaving or waxing.
This cream has an extensive list of ingredients which are claimed to be natural. Its main ingredient is water while the rest consists of various glycols, glycerins, and extracts.
- Interrupt growth phase of body hair
- Thin existing body hair
- Reduce length of body hair
- Decrease the need to wax or shave
Use and Results
To test the effectiveness of Stop-Grow I shaved my pubic area and then applied the cream to only the right side. Per the instructions, I rubbed until fully absorbed – twice per day – in the morning and afternoon.
For two-and-a-half weeks I followed the instructions as closely as I could. When enough hair re-grew to compare the left and right sides, the test period ended.
THE GOOD NEWS
One nice aspect to this product is that a little goes a long way. It only takes a small dab to cover several square inches. At the rate I was using it, the 4.0 fluid once tube should have lasted at least a month.
As an added benefit, the cream helped to reduce the redness of razor burn. As shown in the photo, my right side is much less red than the left.
There are some other good points about this hair inhibitor too:
- It smells good and has a mild citrus like odor.
- It’s not greasy and it absorbs quickly without leaving a residue.
THE BAD NEWS
I really thought that Stop Grow would work better than it did. You would think that something with as many ingredients as this would do something more than reduce razor burn. However, after more than two weeks of using the cream I see no reduction in hair growth.
Below are before and after photos of the upper test areas. It’s clear that the product did next to nothing to inhibit hair re-growth.
My right side (left side of photo) was where the cream was applied, yet both sides show an equal amount of hair. There appears to be no slowing at all.
Why didn’t StopGrow work as expected?
- Maybe I should have used a larger amount.
- Maybe I should have given it more time.
- It’s possible that my hair is resistant to the formula.
The instructions don’t say anything about how much to use and for how long. Therefore, I can only assume that I used it correctly.
It’s hard to say why my results were disappointing. I feel that I gave it a fair and honest try and used it like anyone else would.
After two-and-a-half weeks I would have expected StopGrow to do more. Even-though this product has some good qualities, it failed to work as intended. And for that I can’t recommend it.Try StopGrow Here>>>
