RazorPit – Bump Foam
This post may contain affiliate links.
I was recently offered the chance to try out Bump Foam* from shaving experts RazorPit. Bump Foam is different to other shaving foams and gels as it promises to prevent razor burn, bumps and ingrown hairs, plus it contains no perfumes, parabens or colourants. It is suitable for all parts of the body – face, legs, armpits and intimate areas (it refers to these as ‘private areas’ on the bottle!).
The first thing I noticed about Bump Foam is that it is much more runny than regular shaving foam, almost like the creamy lather from soap, this means that it spreads onto the skin really easily.
Bump Foam does have quite a clinical smell, probably due to it containing anti-bacterial properties that not only help to cleanse the skin but also keep your razor bacteria free. It’s not an unpleasant smell though. I was a bit cynical before actually shaving with it as to whether this thin foam would provide enough lubrication for the razor, but it does give a really smooth shave and I didn’t end up with any ingrown hairs as promised.
As well as trying out Bump Foam myself I passed it to Mr Beauty Best Friend to try out on his face. He was really impressed with it, he said it gave a really close shave that left his chin feeling smooth and soft, and it didn’t cause the small red lumps that he occasionally experiences on his neck after shaving.
There are only a couple of downsides to this product that I can see. The first is the name ‘Bump Foam’ – surely it should be called ‘Anti-Bump Foam’ or ‘No Bump Foam’ – I think the current name suggests that it WILL give you skin bumps after shaving! The second downside is the price, it costs 15 euros (about £12) for a 150ml bottle, which is much more expensive than the regular shaving foams and gels that are available in the supermarket – Gillette Satin Care is £3.49 for 200ml and Nivea For Men Shaving Gel is £3.10 for 200ml – although it is good value when compared with the premium brands’ shaving products – Lancome Men High Definition Shaving Foam costs £18 for 200ml.
Overall I think it’s a good product that gives a good result, and I think if you have particular problems with ingrown hairs or razor burn after shaving then it might be worth investing in some Bump Foam from RazorPit. If you’re just looking for a good value regular shaving foam then this might not be for you.
Bump Foam is priced at 15 euros (around £12) for 150ml and is available from RazorPit.
