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.

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.

      i still just call it private part because when i first heard penis i was grossed out which was around grade 5 or 6 now it sound weird
    • MetaLicious
      I just call my penis for what it is.  I wish it wasn't, it is a penis, and I have no issues with calling it that.  However, I learned that the "seam" that runs down the scrotum is where proto-labia fused together in the womb - since then, I've taken to referring to that part on my anatomy as "labicles."  It gives me some comfort to know that my corret anatomy is there, just a bit mis-configured.   @ToniTone, it's not strange to me.  I have a history of UTIs that make the idea of a shorter urethra somewhat scary to me.  I don't think I want GCS (or any major surgery) at my age.  I just don't heal like I used to.  We all have to find our own comfort zone.

      Mine are severe,we have a rule too called no smoking in the house including in the vehicles
    • MetaLicious
      Yeah, quitting is like fighting a bear - it just seems so much easier to give up the fight and let the bear win.  Then, after you have quit and feel like you're done for good, stress will come and whisper, "Wouldn't a smoke be just the thing right now?"  Or you'll walk past a smoker and the scent will trigger a nostalgic feeling instead of reminding you how disgusting it smells. I had a friend who would always complain about how his clothes smelled after hanging out at my house, and I was always dismissive of the notion until I quit.  Then I would visit a smoker and come home complaining about the stench my clothes had acquired.   It's like you can stop smoking, but you can never truly go back to being a non-smoker.

      I know, right?  I was never much into social media of any kind, but now I find myself grabbing my phone before my alarm goes off just so I can hit the "Good morning All. Coffees on." forum.  It's truly becoming a second home for me in away no other site has been.

      I can't afford it either right now. I am looking at too many other potential costs to even get started on HRT and rid myself of some of self-destroying dysphoria. One of which is multiple sessions with a psychologist @$180-200 per hour. Income is fixed so trying to watch the expenses knowing what is ahead. Just in a bad spot atm emotionally trying to do 1 day at a time. I am so happy to read of others progressions and can offer offer nothing but great support in their trials as well, even if I dont respond very much. I am lurking, reading and cheering you all on. Have faith in all.   Big Canadian Hug JoniSteph

      Maybe it's because of the 5 minutes I spent as a pre-med student in college (not literally 5 minutes but you get my point), but I'm fortunate to have a sort of clinical detachment on this topic. I look forward to the day I don't have to deal with the penis and testicles, they've always felt like foreign attachments, something that was grafted on to me against my will, but the words don't bother me at all. I can certainly understand why some would have an issue, though.

      @ToniTone I don't believe that's strange at all. But just to point out from my own research, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but one part of gcs is hair removal from the area to prevent infection and other health hazards later on. Though I don't know about your other concern, a doctor would be the one to ask about that.  By no means am I saying you should go full gcs. That is very special for each individual and if they choose to follow the full process or not follow any at all, it makes them no less woman for us, or man for others. It is entirely up to you and your comfort level.   ❤️

      Honestly, my HRT just leveled me out. For the first time in my life I could think, react and feel appropriately. I can concentrate, feel compassion and generally function as a human being. I'm capable of loving myself as well as others. I have dreams again.   Without HRT, I was an emotional wrecking ball headed for a self-destructive end. Perhaps one of the most miserable human beings on the planet. You wouldn't recognize me if you'd met me three years ago. Seriously.   Surprises were things like how little emotion was actually getting through before the HRT. It was like switching from a sippy cup to drinking from the fire hose. I like the extra feels though. They make me feel complete.   Hugs!

      I too do not feel it is a concern of hers to manipulate anything for my sole benefit or even the benefit of many.  Would I like her to relieve me of this financial burden.  Heck yes but I would not pray for such a thing as I feel things do happen for a reason and eventually that reason will make itself known to me.  Countless times of strife and trouble in my life can be looked back on and a positive aspect can be seen of that event or incident.  Even if it is to just simply learn to not do that anymore. (I wish I had this mentality when deciding to get married four times)

      I'm also very allergic to cigarette smoke... how have you managed to co-habitate? Cigarette smoke on clothes will set my asthma off. I'm imagining a nightmare scenario for you... I'm only hoping your symptoms aren't as severe as mine.   Hugs!
    • Debra Michelle
      He knows I am very allergic to cigarette smoke too,doing this for me too.Found out when I was 5 years old,my allergist is glad he is doing it too
    • ToniTone
      I'm glad I got a giggle out of some of ya. It (the term) is both meant to make light of the situation (which has been another name for it, lol), and also me sincerely just owning it. Like many of you stated, I also don't really spend much time looking at or thinking about it.    I've decided I don't want gcs. I have too much hair down there, and some slight urinary issues that I worry would be compounded by a major change in my physiology. I'm not really that dysphoric about that bit. It's the other bits that bother me. I'm eager to get an orchidectomy. Is that a strange disconnect? Wanting the orchie but not the full gcs? 
    • ShawnaLeigh
      That is good to hear.  I've never smoked (never even tried it).so I hear it is extremely difficult to quit.  I applaud anyone who can beat an addiction like smoking.
