I have been meaning to write a review on this product since long, but kept forgetting it every now and then. Well, finally here it is. We all take care of our body using different products, like body wash, creams and lotions, face washes, deodorants and other products for hygiene, but most of the times neglect our intimate parts. Just like other body parts, this area too needs special care. With the onset of summer, which we all know comes with myriad skin problems, like fungal infections, urinal infections, one needs to take utmost care of their body including the intimate body parts.
So, today, I will be reviewing Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash, which I have been using since quite some time. I saw this product on some e-commerce websites too. I picked this from a medical store though. This is also available in the western countries, albeit with different packaging.
Gentle Enough for Daily Cleansing Freshness: Specially formulated for delicate, sensitive skin. pH balanced, gently cleanses without irritation even on sensitive skin. Enriched with skin soothing chamomile, Vitamin E and aloe. Hypoallergenic. Protects Against Odour. Fights embarrassing feminine odour caused by perspiration or discharge. Unique odour control formula even helps odour from developing.
(Although no one likes the odour caused due to perspiration or discharge, it is a little too much to call it embarrassing; no one smells that bad even without using intimate washes, don’t these product designers think even once before using such words).
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 120 for 100 ml.
Aqua, sodium laureth sulphate, lauryl glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine, glycerine, PEG-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, peg-6 caprylic capric triglycerides, sodium chloride, PEG-400, DMDM hydantoin, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, fragrance, polyquaternium 10, benzethonium chloride, lactic acid, aloe vera powder, Vitamin E Acetate, Chamomile Extract, Brilliant Blue FCF (CI 42090), Tartrazine (CI 19140).
This comes in an inverted tube with a flip open lid. The packaging is not completely leak proof which makes it not so travel friendly. Also, smaller opening would have made it easier to take out the right amount of product, but once you get used to it, it wouldn’t be a problem.
My Take on Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash:
I use this twice a day, sometimes just once a day while having bath. Ever since I have started using Vagisil intimate wash, I feel clean and fresh the entire day. It really works in keeping the odour away. It also keeps the intimate area itch-free, especially during the days we wander out in the sun. I have never ever had urinary tract infections, so can’t really comment if it prevents those infections. This intimate wash is light blue in colour. The consistency of this wash is a little runny, it reminds me of the Fash face wash, just that this is not as blue as the face wash.
This product has never caused any itching, burning sensation or any allergies for me. I find this intimate wash quite mild even if the ingredients list mentions SLS. I cannot really compare it with other intimate washes available as I haven’t used them. Although, I have no issues with this intimate wash, the mention of SLS disturbs me a little. So, I will check if there are any intimate washes without SLS.
Pros of Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash:
- Keeps intimate area clean.
- Blocks odour.
- Doesn’t cause itching or burning.
- Does not cause irritation.
- Inexpensive as a little goes a long way.
- Mild and gentle.
Cons of Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash:
- Contains SLS.
- Well, I feel that since this wash is meant for intimate parts, such harsh and strong ingredients should be avoided. Having said that, I am not sure if other intimate washes contain SLS and that if it is required in small quantities to make the product really work.
4 on 5, I would have given this 5/5 had it been SLS free.
Will I repurchase Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash?
I will look for SLS free intimate washes first and repurchase this only if I don’t find them.
Do I Recommend Vagisil Intimate Feminine Wash?
Yes, if you are comfortable with SLS in it. If you have extremely sensitive skin, I would suggest you to seek medical advice before using this product.
