I received this lovely package from EK Media [on behalf of Lactacyd] on Monday [20th August] morning.
I love it when companies put in more effort in the presentation of products. When they do that, it makes me feel more appreciated and I will be more willing to go an extra mile for them.
My mimi was the one who signed it for me and brought it into my room. She was exclaiming how pretty the package was!
The contents in the box:
What interest her the most was...
Yes, the oatmeal.
So cute, they even gave a glove which I presumed was for doing the oatmeal scrub.
Initially I thought the oatmeal was included in the package because the new range contains oatmeal as part of their ingredients but it turns out to be just for the scrub.
Now, just because I mentioned a scrub, please don't automatically assume it is a face scrub. It can be used as a body scrub too!
While we can use the above home made recipe for a body scrub, did you know that there are intimate areas that need extra delicate care?
Please stop using your body soap/ wash to clean your intimate regions on your body! Different parts of your body requires a wash with different pH, that's why you don't use your body soap on your face!
Our skin is towards the acidic side but most body wash lean towards the alkali side of the scale due to their nature. Soaps that are closer to our skin's normal pH are less drying for our skin.
Our intimate area is very delicate; all the more it will require a wash with pH nearer to our skin's need. Yes, you might not know it before but now you have no excuses! I know many women can spend a lot of money on their skincare for face, but please do not neglect your intimate region!
We deserve to treat our skin with the best, therefore I will recommend the number 1 feminine hygiene wash brand, Lactacyd!
Prior to receiving them, I didn't know about the need to use a feminine wash that is catered just for washing our intimate region. So glad that I do now!
I'm sure some women may face problems of darkened bikini area. I know it can be a embarrassing but don't worry, you are not alone! Many women have that due to perspiration and excessive friction from tight clothing. This is more so in Singapore due to the weather here and the fashion choices of Singapore women.
Therefore, I will recommend the Latacyd White Intimate [SGD $13.90/ 250ml]
Ingredients: Purified Water, Magnesium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Laurate, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamide MEA, Laureth-10, Propylene Glycol, Pachyrrhizus Erosus Root Extract, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Lactoserum Atomizate (Milk Permeate Powder), Sodium PCA, 2-Phenoxyethanol, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Hydroxyphenyl Propamidobenzoic Acid, Perfume, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyl Trimonium Chloride, Glycerine, Ascophyllum Nodosum Extract, Lactic Acid
Some of the notable ingredients:
- Algowhite: Marine based whitening agent, lightens by reducing melanin synthesis, exfoliates by activating the cells thereby reducing darkness, protects by inhibiting free radicals.
- Actipone-B: Marine based whitening agent, lightens by inhibiting the production of melanin, a pigment found in skin which is the origin of skin darkness.
- Lactoserum: Milk based moisturizing and revitalizing agent.
- Lactic Acid: Natural, soothing, anti-itching agent.
This product is made with natural ingredients and at pH level 5.2! A test conducted on 100 Asian women between September to December 2011 shown that 67% of the women witnessed visible lightening in 4 weeks and 90% of the women witnessed visible lightening in 12 weeks.
I've only used this product for about a week, therefore the effect is not that prominent on me yet. Albeit slight, but I do observe lightening [do note that I am using this just once a day though I bathe twice a day since I alternate between this and revitalize]. Oh yes, do note that this product lightens, not whitens. Don't expect this to change your skin tone drastically with prolonged usage! Did I mention that this is the first lightening intimate wash introduced in Singapore?
Second product I want to talk about is this new youth reviving feminine wash, Revitalize. It is making its Asia debut in Singapore!
Latacyd Revitalize [SGD $13.90/ 250ml]
Ingredients: Purified Water, Magnesium Laureth Sulfate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Laurate, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamide MEA, Laureth-10, Maltooligosyl Glucoside, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, PEG-55, Propylene Glycol Oleate, Propylene Glycol, Lactoserum Atomizate (Milk Permeate Powder), Trehalose, Sodium PCA, 2-Phenoxyethanol, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Perfume, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Hydroxyphenyl Propamidobenzoic Acid, Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyl Trimonium Chloride, Menthyl Lactate, Lactic acid, DL-a-Tocopheryl Acetate, Menthol, Eugiena Gracilis Polysaccharide, Hydrolyed Collagen, Pisum Sativum Extract
Some notable ingredients include:
- Vitamin E: Antioxidant qualities and destroys free radicals.
- Collagen: An abundant protein that hydrates and help fight signs of aging.
- Trehalose: A long lasting deodorant moisturizer with moisture-retaining capacity.
- Lactoserum: Milk based moisturizing and revitalizing agent.
- Lactic Aid: Natural, soothing, anti-itchy agent.
Likewise, the Lactacyd Revitalize is made with natural ingredients and at a pH level of 5.2. A product test conducted on 120 Asian women between April to June 2011 shown that 50% of the women witnessed firming effect in 4 weeks and 98% of the women witnessed moisturizing effect in 4 weeks.
The Lactacyd Revitalize contains gentle cleansing and anti-aging properties such as Vitamin E, Collagen and Trehalose (a long lasting deodorant moisturizer) - all of which will help rejuvenate skin, leaving it firm and supple. We all know drinking collagen helps our skin, therefore many facial skincare products try to include collagen. Don't forget that skin is the largest organ in our body and our intimate area is, well, also skin! I like the fact that this wash has collagen, makes me feel like I am applying skincare on top of cleansing. Though I've only used it for about a week, I do feel that my intimate region feels more moisturized! I cannot comment on the firming since my period of use is merely a week [once a day since I alternate between this and Intimate White] and have yet to observe any significant changes.
They are very reasonably priced; since they are only for use at your intimate area, only a small amount is needed each use and thus a bottle can last you for months! You can find Lactacyd products at all leading pharmacies.
Stop being lazy people; care for your body right. You will regret it in future if you don't and by then, it might be too late. [Don't think just because no one can see it so you don't have to pay much attention!]
