After Inked Review!
On Thursday, a delightful package dropped through the doors at Tattoosday UK- one handy- sized airless bottle and a sachet of the After Inked aftercare lotion, courtesy of their UK distributor. In a word: fantastic. But I’m not here to write one word articles, so take a look for yourself after the jump!
Something that really impressed me about After Inked is their business ethics: After Inked is vegan friendly and cruelty free. It is also full of natural ingredients, such as grape seed oil, and of course is fragrance free.
The lotion can be used on tattoos that are fresh, for aftercare treatment, or pre-existing tattoos to brighten them up a bit. Of course, after reading that, the lotion went straight onto my tattoos!
I was really impressed with how much can be used from just one squirt of the bottle pump- one pea sized amount of the lotion covered up tattoos that would amount to just under a half- sleeve! Of course, if these tattoos were fresh, that probably wouldn’t be the case, but I was still nonetheless really happy with how little you had to use.
As soon as the lotion had set in, I saw results- my skin felt really soft, and I could see the black pigment in my tattoos almost coming to life- fantastic! I handed Lauren, an occasional contributor to this site, the sachet which she immediately put onto her healing tattoos.
“This stuff is fantastic!”, she tells me! She also commented on how nice it smells, and how it isn’t a fraction as greasy as Bepanthen (which we both usually use). I completely agree- I hate how Bepanthen feels on my skin!
Speaking of which, unlike Bepanthen, After Inked won’t stick to your clothes- leaving us ready to get dressed and go out- brilliant!
All in all, I’d say that After Inked is definitely something I’d recommend however, always listen to your tattoo artist’s after care instructions! If they don’t talk about a product such as After Inked, or any other method of aftercare, it never hurts to ask- but it may if you don’t!
Thank you very much for sending those samples, After Inked, Lauren and I loved them!
