The SweetSpots Lab Buff & Brighten is a simple pad that exfoliates you skin after shaving. I shaved my underarms in the shower and immediately used these pads after I got out of the shower. I was worried they would sting and they didn't at all, thankfully. I just wiped it back and forth and they were pretty saturated so I felt like I got enough on my underarms to decide if it worked well. I didn't have any bumps which was great because sometimes I get those little bumps after shaving and I got none after using these. I've noticed over the past year that my underarms seem to be getting darker, nothing crazy, but dark enough for me to notice and I felt like after using these on several occasions during week and after weeks my underarms looked a little lighter, I think I need more time to get the full picture of how it can lighten, but overall I'm happy. I will say use this to avoid bumps after shaving, but to lighten, give it more time and be patient for results.
I did try this on my bikini area and I was more impressed in that area. My skin is very sensitive after waxing and I waited a day to be on the safe side and it was still gentle enough for no stinging or burning and it seemed to really help with ingrown hairs and when the hair started to grow back, it didn't seem to itch which was very nice so this really seemed to help my skin feel better. It's not really a dark area on me so there was no change on that front.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who tends to get bumps after shaving or hair removal, this really helps and feels soothing.
I received this product for free from Bzz Agent and SweetSpot Labs in exchange for my honest review. I noted that the box that the item came in was very uh modern looking. It had color and easy to read writing. This product comes in a beautiful and summer colored screw top jar. When I attempted to open the jar it was sealed very tight. Once I opened it, the product did not have an overwhelming smell. The pads were easy to remove from the lineup, and seemed to have an even distribution of moisture. I use the pad and applied it to the areas I remove hair from. It did not burn or tingle, which is good for those with sensitive skin. I do have razor bumps and ingrown hairs, and I am not sure if this is going to be my new go to product because of the way the cotton pads dry out over time. For example, I went to apply the pad to skin a few days from my first use and it was dry. I looked at other reviews, and people said to store upside down. I tried that and a few days later they were more moist, but it didn't seem to be the same result as the first application. I think I would prefer to have the product in a bottle that I can apply to my own cotton pad. I will continue to try this for the next few weeks in hopes that it will continue to help with razor burn, ingrowns, and dark spots. Thank you Bzz Agent and SweetSpot Labs!

Was looking forward to using and loving these pads. These pads are damped at best.

This product has been my holy grail for so long. I use it religiously on my bikini area and on my armpits after i shave and for a few days after to keep razor bumps at bay. I still get them from time to time but not nearly as bas as i did before i found this. Sadly, they changed the formula. It now smells really bad, almost like rotten nutmeg or cinnamon when it used to smell fresh and clean. I hope the product works the same, but the smell is just awful now.

The seal on the container is flawed. Mine arrived partially open and dry. The actual product is just ok. I love the size of the pads. I use these on my upper arms and on my feet/heels.

I'm honestly mad I didn't buy these sooner. These have been on my list for a while but I kept trying other cheaper/ trending options first. This is the ONLY product that I've seen results from!!. Dark spots are significantly lighter. Will definitely keep buying

After they revamped their packaging they changed the product. Really liked the product before but not anymore 😞
Julie from Chicago
I have been struggling with ingrowns for YEARS! I have tried everything - this is the only product that's worked and doesn't sting/burn/dry out my skin. I use it about 4 x / wk and rarely get bumps from shaving (winter) or waxing (summer) anymore

Sweetspot buff got changed completely. The product even smell different & result is not like before. It doesn't worth to pay money after changing the product for worth .why the manufacturer change it !!! I used to use it for more than a year & half ..now no way to use it again .May 2023

This product did work but the pads were pretty dry upon initial opening, therefore i was having to use more pads to get a good amount of product on my skin.

I've struggled with hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, ingrowns, etc. and this product worked WONDERS on everything, it is a chemical exfoliatant so definitely follow the directions of easing into how often you use it. Clears up skin so we'll! Will get you summer ready for sure!

if you do any type of wax (especially bikini area) you'll definitely benefit off this… my hairs came out softer when waxing… I've definitely seen a difference in my pores/ingrown hairs.

I've been using these for a while and I only use them after a shave which is not every day and I have definitely noticed my darker areas have lightened and it helps a lot with preventing ingrowns and irritation. Also if you have any rough skin in areas with lots of friction this helps as well.

This definitely works I've taken before and after picks but it did make me itchy in one area but it did the job.
Traci from WI
I tried this once for my arm pits and bikini area and thought it was due to over exfoliating first but no just tried it again months later and it made my arm pit/bikini area was itchy and swollen for days. This wasn't some little itchiness. It was unbearable and soooo red. DO NOT GET THIS if you have sensitive skin.

I use this product after I perform bikini waxes on my clients. It helps mitigate ingrown hairs and it's so soothing. It also brightens the inside thigh area. I LOVE Buff & Brighten! I highly recommend!

I adore SweetSpot Labs body washes so I was excited to try these pads. Unfortunately, a single pad is so thin and flimsy it keeps rolling up when you try to use it. I had to double the pads to use them properly. The diameter of the pads is smaller than expected based on the size of the container. Body pads need to be thick and larger to cover body areas - more like body wipes (100% biodegradable of course.) I went ahead and used all the pads to see if they made a difference, but I didn't notice anything.

Works great! my boyfriend uses it for under his beard.
KEH from Indianapolis
Not to be dramatic but this changed my life. I have sensitive skin and get irritation. I use this after shaving (stings a little but not bad at all and only lasts a few seconds) and a few times a week as needed. It makes a huge difference!! I use it under my arms and I've noticed it helped lighten the skin there. Worth the price imo
Nina from Hadley. Massachusetts
Love it .
It's so easy to use and travel friendly too
Olivia from Undisclosed
Honestly I wanted to love this product but unfortunately for me it just didn't work . Used it for over a month . Followed instructions and it just felt sticky .

I received this product for free from Bzz Agent and SweetSpots Labs in exchange for my honest review. First off I love that the product is made with clean ingredients. I have used the product for a few weeks now and I can honestly say that I have noticed less ingrown hairs around my bikini line, which was always my trouble spot. It also seems to be making any of my dark spots a little less dark the more I use the pads. My only complaint would be that the pads seem to be drying out very quickly event though I am closing the container correctly after each use. Overall I think this is a great product and a must try if you suffer from razor burn/ bumps.
Thanks SweetSpot Labs!

I have sensitive skin. Whenever I shave or wax, no matter what products I use, I get some form of irritation, and my skin never felt smooth. I was originally looking for cream, but I came across these exfoliating pads and said, what the heck, I'll give it a try. I've started using Buff & Brighten AHA/BHA pads under my arms, bikini area, and legs. This stuff is great! I noticed an improvement almost immediately in terms of it calming my skin, and now that I'm using it more often... 1, my skin feels less irritated and itchy after shaving or waxing, and 2, the redness/darkness/discoloration is fading! I'm a huge fan. I will keep this product stocked. It's now a staple in my personal care routine. I also like the fact that all of the ingredients are gentle and non-toxic.

This is a pretty good product. I has helped a lot with underarm and bikini line razor burn. They are easy to use and do not cause me any irritation.
