Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade System

Almost everyone I know has tattoos, males and females, and some I have been friends with since we got them.  Strange thing is, every single tatted person I know, regrets them.  I asked them, if you could wash it off right now, would you?  All of them said yes.  Maybe it's just us, but for me, I also don't like my tattoos anymore, and I haven't for many years. 

I have been to the doctor many times to try to get them lasered off, but every time something comes up and I can't do it- moving, pregnancy, travelling, who knows. It's a very time consuming process.

A woman I know used this to fade away her permanent makeup (eyebrows) and I had never heard of it before.  As with anything I use, it's better for me to be a sceptic rather than have high hopes and be disappointed.  So, I have been using this for only one week, and I will give my thoughts so far below, but here is what the product actually is:

This is what comes inside the box: the tool, bottles of gel and cream, and a concealer.

This is how you use it: you put some suffusion gel onto the head of the tool, rub it in a circle on top of the tattoo for 45 seconds to one minute.  Rinse off your skin and clean the head of the tool with antibacterial soap.  Apply hydravescent cream to tattoo.  Wait 15-20 minutes, then apply concealer. 

For me, the concealer does not work, so I am skipping that step. 

I also looked everywhere on the box and on their website for a list of ingredients, and I can't find any, which does concern me. 

So far, after using it as directed for just one week, I know it does something.  It is supposed to renew your skin cells from the inside layer of skin.  All I know is, it hurts when you use it on sensitive areas (chest for example), I mean it rubs and it feels almost like getting a tattoo.  Ok, maybe I exaggerate, but to say it is painless is simply not true.  If not painful, it is irritating.  It raises my tatoo and leaves a rashlike redness over the area.  I even experienced some bleeding the second time I used it.  I am sorry I do not have photos becuase of the location, I was unable to get a picture, but I will try to have
someone take one for me in the next few days. 

Here is part of one I have on my left arm.  This is not the one I am trying to remove, becuase of the density and lack of colour, I did not think this kit would work on this one at all, so I didn't even try it. 

Tattoos cover a lot of my body, unfortunately, and I wish I could wish them away.  I don't like covering them, and when they take up half your arm, whats the point of that anyway.  For now, I am trying this on a coloured tat, so if that works, I might try it on other areas, but most reviews say it takes up to 6 months to see any fading, so that's a long time commitment, but I will definitely update in the future.


  1. I have 3 tattoos and only like 1 of them. I so regret having them done (when I was 17!)...

    I'm thinking of having laser surgery to remove one on my shoulder

    Hey, check out my new giveaway!

  5. Sorry you feel like that about your tattoo's. A lot of my friends have them but luckily most like theirs. I never got one as I couldn't decide what to have and was scared I'd change my mind once I had it. One of my friends is having hers removed at the minute, but it looks terrible!! Where it's been lazered it's gone like a scar...don't know if this is whats meant to happen, but I sure hope it goes away for her. Hope you manage to get something sorted with yours so you can feel better about them. Chin up luv :)
