Can we get intimate?
We’ve known each other for a few years now, so I’m sure we can get all close and personal and talk about our vulvas.
Sorry if that was too direct for you. This is a science-based blog. We call things by their name here.
Anyway, what has that to do with skincare? Well, you know Soft & Gentle, the brand famous for its deodorants? Well, it just launched a new line of feminine care products.
And, yep, there is a deodorant for your vagina, too. Should we start with that?
I’m not sure why someone felt the need to create a deodorant for your vulva. They say it’s to neutralize body odour caused by sweating.
But I usually have a shower when I sweat too much. Never felt the need to spray anything down there.
And, frankly. I’m not sure it’s a good idea. Fragrances, even when they smell like a delicate bouquet of flowers like this one, tend to be irritating.
This one is said to be so gentle, you can use it on underwear or sanitary wear. And, it hasn’t irritated my skin so far.
But, I often forget to use it. I mean, I do use it, but often only on my underarms. It just comes natural to spray deodorant there. On my vulva, not so much.
What can I say? Old habits die hard.
2 In 1 Shower & Shave Mousse
This is the hero product of the line. It’s a mousse that leaves skin soft and moisturized.
One small pump delivers a ton of lather so don’t go overboard. You apply it to wet skin and then rinse it well with warm water. Afterwards, skin is softer to the touch.
That also helps when you want to shave your bikini area. That’s what the shave bit in the name alludes to.
It has a fragrance, too, but it’s very subtle.
This is the most innovative product from this line. I like that.
Daily Shower Wash
This is my fave product from the line. Maybe because it’s pink. Yep, I AM shallow like that.
Anyway, this is your standard shower gel. It’s made with sodium laureth sulfate and cocamidopropyl betaine to cleanse away all the dirt on your intimate skin.
I like it because it’s very gentle yet it gets the job done. And smells like a bunch of flowers that just fell into a basin full of soap. Ok, not the most enticing description in the world, but it smells lovely, I promise you!
I know, not the most throughout review, but there ain’t much else to say about them. It’s a new line of gentle intimate care products that get the job done and look pretty to boot.
I’m a bit concerned that the subtle fragrance may irritate sensitive skin, but it seems to be working well for everyone else.
And it’s not every day you come across a deodorant for your vagina. That piqued your interest, didn’t it?
