Razor bumps among men are more common than you think. For many, especially those with textured hair, it’s a lifelong struggle of trial and error to figure out the most effective way to get rid of razor bumps.

For me, every time I shaved or trimmed my facial hair, no matter what I did to calm any skin irritation, nothing worked. I tried calming and hydrating face masks, toners and treatments, but the only product that’s worked so far has been the High Time Bump Stopper-2 Double Strength Treatment — and it looks like I’m not the only one who’s impressed.

Available on both Amazon and Walmart, this product provides you with the relief your skin needs after a close shave or trim. Often, especially for men of color, bumps and ingrown hairs usually form after shaving. This can lead to further itchiness and irritation.

Once consistently applied after each shave, the High Time Bump Stopper-2 Double Strength Treatment keeps most ingrown hairs and razor bumps at bay. It’s also clinically tested and dermatologist and barber-approved. In fact, my barber initially recommended the product in August after seeing a few razor bumps below my chin. After using it for just one month, the bumps have almost completely cleared up.

The treatment comes in two different strength levels: sensitive skin and double strength. While both options are likely effective, my sensitive and easily irritated skin tolerates the double strength formula well without any major inflammation.

With an overall customer rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars on Walmart and a similar rating on Amazon, the High Time Bump Stopper-2 Double Strength Treatment is a clear best-selling men’s grooming and skin care product. In fact, one Walmart shopper had three words for those considering purchasing the cream: “Just buy it!”

“Highly, highly, highly recommend this. I have had issues since I first started shaving many years ago,” the shopper gushed. “This still is truly amazing … Burns a little on the bumps but gone within minutes. Bumps [are] gone within the hour, or less red.”

The same shopper added that it also reduces the appearance of bumps even more “and prevents redness the longer you use it.”

Keep in mind that a little goes a long way with this treatment. So, apply light-handedly.
