Oriflame Feminelle Gentle Intimate Wash

I am very particular about hygiene. Since I am a microbiologist, I am very finicky when it comes to cleanliness of hands and stuff. Specially after I picked up infection of eyes- thanks to the microbes in my lab. Another thing which I am very finicky about is using washrooms– I avoid using toilets when I go out. I don’t know why, no matter how good the place is it’s just something I avoid. I am scared of the toilets of our labs. We have a small animal house on our floor and the peons clean all the cages every alternate day. Believe it or not, those cages are cleaned and everything is washed down our floor’s toilets! Yuck. Imagine the tons of microbes that must be inhabiting there. Ewww. Gives me the creeps. My bhabhi is very prone to vaginal infections hence an intimate wash is a basic thing that you will find in her shower. After popping pills and applying creams to ward off the infections, her gynaecologist prescribed her lactacyd for daily use. She noticed the difference of using intimate wash daily and, noticing my obsession for personal hygiene, recommended me this intimate wash from oriflame. Although she hasn’t used it, she suggested giving this one a try.

Product: Feminelle Gentle Intimate Wash
Quantity: 300ml
Price: Rs 298. ( I got some discount.)

Claims
Extra mild cleanser, with natural lactic acid, helps maintain the pH-balance in the intimate area. Soap-free formula with hypoallergenic fragrance. pH-balanced and gynaecologist tested.

Ingredients
Aqua, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Sodium Chloride, Methylparaben, PolyQuaternium-67, Propylparaben, Parfum, Lactic Acid, Sodium Lactate, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol.

My Take on the Product
I didn’t even know such intimate washes existed until my bhabhi talked about using lactacyd. I am glad I found this product because I agree we must help to maintain the normal flora and vaginal PH. Using soaps etc will strip away the normal flora which will make us prone to urinary tract infections (UTI) and what not! Women have short urethra which makes us prone to UTI.

From the picture we can see that this wash comes in a pretty creamy orange-ish big bottle with a pump dispenser. You need to turn the pump and press it for the little bit of wash to drop. The wash is runny transparent liquid which lathers up quite easily. I also found that you need a very little amount to effectively cleanse the feminine area. There is no feeling to itchiness and burning while using this wash. It’s an absolute no- nonsense mild cleanser. During my teen years, I used to use soap which caused so much discomfort the whole day. With this cleanser, there is no discomfort at all.

The wash is formulated for daily use which makes it even better. Lactic acid in the product encourages maintaining the vagina’s acidity which is essential for protection against bacterial and fungal infections. The wash has a very mild negligible smell which is just the way I like it. I guess a strong fragrance product will cause some itchiness or allergic reactions in intimate area. Besides it will be really weird if we get mint flavoured and rose flavoured wash.. hahahahaha … weird or is it me ? ?

The only problem with this wash is that it’s too bulky to carry around. The pump can be rotated to lock it but I wouldn’t carry such big bottle anywhere. For travelling purposes, Oriflame has feminelle intimate area wipes. I haven’t got a chance to use them yet. Also I am not sure whether this wash moisturizes the area or not nevertheless it is good for daily use.

Lastly, for the amount of product we’re getting it’s definitely worth the price. So ladies, whether you’re dashing to the gym, giving out board presentations or simply going for romantic dinner feminelle intimate wash makes sure you feel fresh and confident.
