Protecting your V’s – it’s about time you start!


I’ve been getting these blast-from-the-past moments of late. Brands and products that I used to use many years ago have been re-appearing in my life and they bring back so many memories and ignite such a strong sense of nostalgia. 


Anyone familiar with this bottle of Lactacyd Liquid? I battled with acne when I was in Junior College (I was from Catholic Junior College, if any of you are wondering) and I asked this girlfriend of mine, who is super pretty and has flawless skin no less what facial wash she was using. She told me that she was using Lactacyd Liquid and of course, I headed for the stores right away and got myself a couple of bottles. I remember using it for quite a few years. Lactacyd liquid is extracted from milk, maintains the natural skin acidic pH and is suitable for sensitive skin and those with dermatological problems. My skin cleared up with the help of creams from the dermatologist and this wash. 


So when the good people at Lactacyd contacted me recently to share about a campaign that they’re currently running, I agreed immediately. I definitely trust this brand. They sent me these bottles of feminine wash. Is anyone of you using these already? I honestly can get quite lazy sometimes and do the minimal to ‘upkeep’ myself. 

Reading up about how to care for the V area and feminine washes online, the general consensus is that different parts of the body require different cleansing products. Just as you would wash your face with a facial cleanser, you need a special cleanser for your Vs too to protect the area and to keep it clean and fresh. This definitely makes a lot of sense doesn’t it? Prior to this, I’ve not given much thought to treating my V well at all. I think it’s about time I start.

Everyday washing with normal soap can weaken the natural protection of your V area because the pH value is different. When the balance of your pH value is disrupted, bacteria can breed and form.

Lactacyd Daily Feminine Wash not only carries a pH closer to your V area, it also contains Lactoserum, Lactic Acid and other natural ingredients which strengthens the natural protection of the area so that you are free of irritation and odour. There are different types of washes for different needs. Revitalize contains Vitamin E and Collagen to hydrate and refresh, Femining Hygiene contains Lactoserum and Lactic Acid to maintain a balanced pH level, All-Day Fresh contains extra herbal essences for a refreshing clean feel, White Intimate contains marine-based algowhite and plant-based Actipone-B to lighten (within 4 weeks), and Soft & Silky contains extra milk moisturizers to moisturize and prevent dryness. They’ve also got feminine wipes, to keep you fresh and clean when you’re on the go.


Besides sharing about the importance of feminine care in this post, I would like to share about this amazing empowering campaign that Lactacyd is currently having. Actually, maybe I don’t really want to share about this contest because I want to win too. Haha!  :X
