VWash Plus

August 13, 2018
A lot of us women are kind of picky when it comes to what we use in the shower. What shampoo to use, which body soap is best, or even if you should get a loofah or not. But what many don't really think about is the right kind of product for your most intimate area. That's right - your vagina. Your hoo-ha. Your cave of wonders.

I'm very particular about my own personal feminine hygiene, especially living in a country where one can get sweaty (and funky) in practically every crack and crevice of your body. That's why I like to try out different feminine washes to hunt down the best one for me. The latest one I decided to test was this VWash Plus.

The best defense against any vaginal discomfort is prevention. Protect your most delicate area with daily use of a special product - VWash Plus.
  • VWash Plus is enriched with sea buckthorn oil which contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids.
  • Daily washing with VWash Plus leaves a fresh sensation and maintains healthy vaginal flora.
  • Prevents unpleasant odors and irritations in the intimate areas.
  • Paraben and SLS/SLES free

Those are a lot of good promises. What's most important for me is keeping away unpleasant odors and making sure my health down there is optimal. Interesting to note, the box has braille on the front which I found neat and very considerate of them to place.

So why is choosing the right kind of feminine wash so important and why can't we just use plain old soap? Aside from keeping you intimately fresh and clean, a good feminine wash will help prevent infection and is a must when you're on your period and if you're sexually active. Not just for your sake, but your partner's as well.

You also just can't reach for ordinary bar soap, lather down there, and call it a day. A (healthy) vagina is naturally acidic with a pH of 3.5, so you have to use a cleanser with the same (or similar) pH level. Like the box shows, soap is way too alkaline. Think of it as wanting to keep your vagina's 'environment' the same as much as possible. Any drastic changes, like using soap, will end up with that 'environment' getting thrown out of whack and lead to dryness, itchiness, infection, unnatural discharge, etc.

I use VWash Plus 1-2 times a day, which is every time I take a shower, basically. It's not too watery nor too thick, which I like, and has a pleasant scent. Now, is it effective? As you can imagine, it's hard to tell if it's really keeping my intimate area at the optimal pH level it promises, but I can say it does keep me feeling fresher down there compared to a lot of other feminine washes I've tried before. Especially during red days! I haven't noticed if it does a better job at preventing irritation. Then again, I hardly get vaginal irritation unless I contract a UTI or am wearing uncomfortable underwear. Can I say I've finally found the best feminine wash for me? Well, maybe! So far I'm happy with VWash Plus and you can bet I'll be buying it regularly until a better product comes along.

Note: The bottle design I have featured in this post is an older one. The new VWash Plus bottles look different!
