2 Product Reviews For Womankind

Recommended Posts

Guest Lizzie McTrucker

I came upon 2 new items that I thought would be worth writing a quick review about.

First up is Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave. I found this at Walgreens on sale (2/$3!) So I thought I would give it a go. It's shave cream, or I guess cream shave. It doesn't lather, but it does work just like any other women's shave cream or shave gel. It has a pleasant fragrance (comes in 3 scents) and it leaves your skin nice and soft. I just tried this the other day so I haven't had the chance to see how long a bottle will last. The size was a little bothering at first because it didn't seem like a lot. When I found out, though, that it's not an aerosol-type can, I was a bit more reassured. The bottle comes with a typical shave cream/gel cap that you really can just toss out since it has a flower shaped base anyway. All you do is pull the flower base out slightly, squeeze out what you need and pop the base closed again. Simple, right? Here's a link if you want to check it out. Follow the link for Moisturizing Cream Shave - Skintimate

So far so good, I give it at least 3.5 razors out of 5.

Next up is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure.

What this claims is nail polish that's all 5 steps rolled into one. Inside this bottle is your base coat, your color, your top coat, your nail strengthener and growth treatment. I don't know about all that but I do know that I only had to put on one coat to get a good color and good coverage. It's lasted a day so far but there is some chipping at the tips of my nails but I don't blame the polish for that. I'm a little rough with my nails so having it chip already is no surprise. It will be super easy to do a touch up though. Oh, I purchased the shade "So Much Fawn" and it's a good every day color for hands.

Here's a link if you'd like to check it out. I don't know how accurate the swatches on the site are to the actual polish colors. I guess mine is mostly accurate.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

So to be fair I'll give this one 3 polished nails out of 5. It's not the best nail polish I've used (that would be OPI) and it's much better than the worst polish I've tried.

Thanks Liz!

Skintimate looks like a good shaving product. I am now using aerosol shaving cream for women, a fair product but just for shaving only. I wonder if its available in Canada.

The Sally Hansen nail polish sounds interesting. It should be good if time is tight to do everything. I love OPI a lot too, nearly all of mine are from them. Recently I have tried Essie, a very good nail polish and last me for two weeks without chipping.

Lizzie....

I have a question....

I'm about 1/2 way through with my electrolysis, so...can Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave be used on the face?

It sounds wonderful!

Yes!

I use it to shave my face.

One bonus is that the stand it sits on is flower shaped. And really, aren't all us ladies just beautiful flowers waiting to blossom....or is that an over-used metaphor?

Nope!

It's perfect every time!

Thanks for the info, Liz...

This might sound like crazy talk but I don't use shaving cream or gels. I just use water from the shower. Thank you for the reviews though. I will look into the Sally Hansen product.

      Brilliant Ellora! I love your photos too   Tracy

      There are lots of women around here who ride bikes. It's very uncommon for them to wear skirts though. Generally the clues are almost down to slight differences in build or even riding style as the clothes they wear are pretty much identical, even men occasionally wearing feminine coloured helmets (eg pink!).   Tracy

      The way  the Federal Government has been acting lately,  and the religious influence certain groups have, I would be extra cautious.

      https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2019/06/17/transgender-people-can-use-chosen-names-cards-mastercard-says/1478201001/   This is a great idea, and a shrewd business move.  But the article lacks detail on how this would work.  For example, I imagine one would have to come out to the company.  That has my privacy meter on high alert.  But, still, it might be workable.   Carolyn Marie

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, hon.  Glad you found us, and I hope you find this place not as boring as life.     We'll be around for questions, or just to listen to some venting if you've got any to do.  I look forward to hearing more from you.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Sounds like you’ve been able to keep some secrets for quite some time now. My friend just commented on me being able to keep my secret(s) for a long time too. My family and some friends would be at odds with this. My kids would be find, but I don’t want to hear it from my ex 🙄. I’ve come to a time in my life where I don’t want to waste anymore time. But I don’t feel the need to tell everyone. I don’t really have to tell anyone, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying 8-10 drawerful of women’s clothing, and a collection of fav lipstick and makeup. I am comfortable dressing at home for now, and in time, I will venture out into the neighborhood, possibly as soon as Pride next month. I enjoy talking to my therapist, doctor, my friend, and everybody here at TransgenderPulse!!  Enjoy life the best you can, but your never too old, especially if it makes you happy! You have to think of yourself at some point, but don’t rush if you don’t need to. Baby steps. Best of luck in your journey!!!

      There's no such thing as "too long in the tooth."  There's a woman close to where I live who started her transition in her 80s.     Losing relationships is an unfortunate part of the process for some, but for many those people come around eventually.  They realize the loss is entirely theirs.  Whether those close to you fall into that category we can't predict.   I do want to speak seriously to something you said.  Half in jest, as they say.  Addiction is a very real risk among the trans population - once a substance starts being used to mask or otherwise cope with gender issues, it's especially easy to form a habit.  While the alternative is almost always harder, it's also always recommended.   Welcome aboard!  Please dive into any conversation that strikes you and ask questions as they arise.

      Hi I just wondered into this site and am pretty new to it, I was born as a male but I identify as female. I came out last year and life is been pretty boring

      Shy is fine. Welcome aboard!     Whatever questions occur to you, ask when you're comfortable doing so.  Glad you're here!

      Squeeee squeee! I finally felt I could stop wearing the athletic supporter and padding, and tried on my 2nd favorite thong I have!! It feels soooooooo much better now. They fit And feel amazing! Way better than before, cause Nothing is falling out, and I’m not thinking about those things anymore. It  feels surreal. With the exception of the one thing left, it feels like nothing is there with these thongs on! I’ve been getting teary eyed on and off all day, getting a little chocked up right now. I can fully cross my legs stand with my legs together with No problems, squeeeeee!! Sooo worth it!!! It’s everything and more 💜💜💜

      I’m new to this and while I get use to this I may seem a little shy

      Ooooo, if you have Snapchat or can dl it, It has a gender filter that blew my mind away. Have some fun with it!

      Hi! Everybody is different, and I will try to help you with how I have felt over 5e years and how I feel now after doing what I have done and experienced.  First you have already said things that can qualify as Gender Dysphoria (GD), “when I think about the idea of going through transition and reading about the bottom surgery, it actually kind of puts me at ease.”  My point here, is the Distress you feel from your body parts, goes away after your thoughts of removing them through surgery. That you feel better when you are in a life that is not the “assigned at birth” role.  I have felt this way on and off from as early as 4yrs old. I say on and off, cause at times, I “had to suppress “ my true feelings growing up, due to my environment. Now that I am in a better position, I am able to follow my dreams. But that wasn’t always as easy as it seems now, it took a lot. You are doing the right thing, research and ask a lot of questions. Do not try and rush anything, and don’t try to feel that you need to follow a template. Go at your own pace, trust yourself. But above all else, Be Safe! May 6th I had an Orchiectomy, and I’m still healing. I feel great tho, even better now that I stopped wear that awful, burn necessary athletic supporter. I’m wearing my 2nd favorite thong, finally, and floating a bit from the happiness. It took me a while to get enough courage to get here, but here I am. And I’m going to happy for quite a while, this was a big step and I want to enjoy it before I take the next big step. I’m on HRT/ Lady Meds, so I will be happy when I see even more improvements. A little over the three month mark now, and I’m seeing some body and emotional changes. I can’t wait until my breast and hips show more. Time will tell. It sounds like you are headed in the right direction. Talking about helps a ton. If you are not out, can you dress, and use makeup and or props? That might help you see how you feel when you can check it all out. Maybe go to a LGBTQ event such as Pride, or something else near by? You don’t have to jump right in the middle, but you could check it from a comfortable distance.  Do you feel comfortable with your therapist?, if you do, great, keep asking and talking.  Enjoy your Journey if you can! Best wishes!

      I love to play World of Warcraft, Dungeons & Dragons. I love to throw the football, play some basketball, build sandcastles, ski, make things out of paracord, ride bikes, and other things. If anybody told me it was too masculine or too feminine , I would put them in check. If my friends had a problem with me, I would tell them they do t have to join. Although it would be hurtful, I don’t want people that are mean or @$$*’s in my life. Don’t need it, don’t want it.
