I use a lot of the Femfresh products and have done for years. I use the deodorant, the wipes and also the wash. Last time I bought a bottle of this was just a few weeks ago when I was staying in a hotel in Harrogate. The hotel only had soap and I don't like to use soap on my little bits as I find it can irritate and it causes me itching and irritation. I bought a small bottle (250ml in size) and paid just under £3. The packaging of these products hasn't changed much over the years. It's still fairly discreet and it doesn't scream out at anyone that it is an intimate body wash.
The reasons I like to use this product are mainly because I have had some irritation from using soapy products on my bits in the past and I have to be quite careful about what I use. It was a very good friend who recommended this range to me many years back. This wash comes in a small plastic container, and is peach in colour, as is the soap free wash inside. It's medium level thickness and I only need to use a small amount in order to feel clean and fresh. It's soap free but this doesn't mean that there is no foam when I use this. There is a small amount of foam and it feels kind and gentle on my skin and rinses off well and without any bother at all.
The fragrance is very light, fresh and gentle and a small 250m bottle will last me weeks and weeks. It contains no nasty chemicals which are going to interfere with the PH balance of my skin and they have also added chamomile and aloe vera which are both reputed to be kind and gentle on sensitive skin.
The flip top bottle fits down hard with a good clasp so I am sure that none is going to drip out if I take it way with me on a trip. It's a fantastic product to have around if, like me, you are prone to being sensitive to soap on your little bits and it's kind and gentle on the skin.
I like to bath or shower daily, always, regardless of my schedule. I use lots of wonderfully expensive luxurious products in my bath. I like to take care of myself in all areas and this is why I purchase this feminine wash from Femfresh. When I am starting my day I like to know that everything is clean and hygienic.
Using perfumed products can upset the PH balance of more delicate areas and can even potentially lead to urine infections and similar problems. This is my main reason for using an intimate wash specifically designed for such areas as I like to ensure that every part of my body is kept in tip top condition.
I quite like the design of this product. It is inoffensive when sitting on one of my clip on wall holders in my bathroom and if turned around it is difficult for any guests to see what this is. This is quite a girlie looking colour and the bottle has lots of blurb about the products and why it is good to use this rather than standard showering or bathing products. This is a soap free product so will not dry out skin at all which is particularly important for an intimate wash. This wash contains aloe vera and camomile and is also dermatologically and gynaecologically tested.
This intimate wash smells very clean. It has a peachy kind of colour to it that makes me think it will keep my nice and clean just from looking at it. This produces a small amount of foam but not too much. This should just be used on the outside of your body before being rinsed off in the usual manner. A little obviously goes a long way with this product as it is for quite a specific area.
This product works very well. It helps me to stay clean and makes me feel fresh and clean for the whole day while out of my home. I have great confidence in this product. Since I begun using Femfresh products I have not had any urine infections and I generally feel like my confidence has been increased.
If you are looking for some reassurance that all is well downstairs ladies then this is an ideal product really. The average price for a 250ml is around £3.00 but I pick these up on half price special offers and a bottle usually lasts a couple of months anyway so reflects great value for money really.
I'm a pretty hygeinic person - I have a bath every day, and regularly use scented shower gels and bath foams - the trouble is, you really shouldn't use these on your lady bits, as they can upset the delicate balance of bacteria down there, which can actually mean that cleaning your lady bits with the wrong product could actually leave you vulnerable to infections.
The vagina has it's own PH balance, and this keeps it working properly- too much use of soap and other cleaning products can really cause problems - but nobody likes to leave it out when having a wash, which is why Femfresh is such a great product .
On the bottle, which is a rather pretty peachy colour with an orange lid, it tells you that this has been dermatologically and gynaecologically tested . It is also soap free, which is good as soap rather dries out your skin, and if there is one area you don't want getting all dried out, it's down there . It is also antibacterial.
Opening the bottle, this really doesn't have much of a scent - just a rather nice 'clean' smell . Using this is incredibly simple - simply lather it on your lady bits (it foams up a little , but not too much) being careful to only use this on the outside, and then rinse off . As it's such an small area you're cleaing, expect a bottle to last a good long time .
I think this is a great product for reassuring yourself that you are nice and fresh down below - and it is particularly useful during that time of the month, or prior to smear tests, for that extra little bit of reassurance that everything is sparkling clean .
Available in all good chemists for around £1.80 a bottle .
I love nothing more than being clean and fresh, so I use a number of feminine products to make sure I'm clean all over, this feminine wash is designed to make sure your intimate parts remain fresh and clean.
A 200ml bottle of Femfresh Feminine Wash costs in the region of £2.00, which might seem like a lot to pay, but if you keep you eyes peeled you will occasionally find this product on offer - I picked up a bottle of this on Rollback in Asda for £1.50.
The Femfresh Feminine Wash is a "soap free gel," designed for every day use so it doesn't interfere with the PH levels down below. It also contains aloe vera and camomile - which are great for cleansing - but you can't really smell these properties within the gel because the product smells quite neutral apart from a subtle floral scent.
The bottle is made of plastic and it had a flip top lid that the product comes out of. The wash itself is a transparent / peach colour and the consistency is great - it isn't too runny or thick and you only need to use a little bit to get clean.
I usually put some of this product on my hands and I lathers up so I can wash down below. This product cleanses without drying the area out - it's a really gentle wash.
I feel really clean and confident after using this - especially during summertime and during that time of the month.
The product is quite long lasting, I don't use it every day but I'd say that a 200ml bottle lasts around three months, so it's quite good value for money.
I award this product four stars.
I honestly don't know how women maintained freshness before this product came out. I have been using femfresh wash for around 6 years now and dont know what i would do if it were ever discontinued! It is around £2 a bottle for a cleanly scented Ph balanced Hypoallergenic alternative to soap which can upset ladies areas and cause infections.
It lathers extremely well and goes a long way, it is safe to use any amount of times a day depending upon when you shower, and makes me feel not only fresh, but moisturised. the only downside to it is that you can pour too much out of the bottles and waste product.
I Noticed the difference from the first time i used this product and if i use normal shower gel on its own I can really feel the difference. The scent of the product is not overpowering and if you run out of shower gel you can use this everywhere.
Liquid Confidence in a bottle.
I've used this product pretty much since I was about 13. Started to find soap was irritating certain things so bought this to give it a try. Noticed the difference straight away. Would not consider using anything else as i have sensitive skin in general.
I've even used this product on my face when I run out of face wash because it's very kind to the skin, contains no perfume or fragrance, and has a neutral PH balance.
It is also not expensive. The bottle will generally last me a good 6 months, even more.
Even my boyfriend uses it sometimes!
If anybody experiences problems using soaps I would highly recommend Femfresh.
I have used supermarket own brands before and they seem to be exactly the same. The bottle, the product inside, only the label is different, and they are even basically the same price.
You could say it is a one of a girls best friends!
Femfresh is a fantastic product and I am surprised that noone came up with this sooner. When I was pregnant I developed a condition known as vulvodynaea which is irrtation of the vulva that meant that any of the normal shower gels that I used which would not normally be a problem would cause a horrific burning and undescribable pain.
Sex was also very difficult and we had to use jellys etc but this still did not take the pain away. At first I was nervous to put any new products on the very sensitive area.
However my mum brought me some femfresh and I have not looked back since. I could washthe area with confidence and did not have to worry about the stinging or burning and the item is still lightly scented so you do smell liked you have had a wash.
Do not suffer in silence if you are having problems give it a go.
I've been using Femfresh wash for a couple of years now, and like another reviewer has mentioned, it's because washing my 'bits' with normal soaps really sting. Femfresh is a nice, light bodywash, and fab to use in the shower; the scent is clean and not overpowering and doesn't have that nasty fake chemical smell. It lathers up nicely with plenty of hot water so no problem using it to shave, and doesn't leave your skin with a tight feeling as many other soaps/shower gels do.
Perfect for those with dry skin conditions, and obviously those suffering from a visit from the 'little bird' too; it's also gentle enough to squirt in the bath for little ones.
I do wonder if they really need to colour it though, after all, the less chemicals and colourants the better; maybe they'll bring out a colour/frangrance free version one day.
I think it's good value for money myself; it retails at around £3.00, but if you go to Superdrug and Boots, they often do a half price promotion on the Femfresh range, and this is when i tend to stock up.
I decided to review this product due to it being (in my opinion), something every gal should have in her bathroom, but know that some people (including my friends) are too embarrassed to admit to buying.
**For the purpose of this review, I shall be referring to Lady Bits as 'Mrs Pennyworth' (or Penny). Much more pleasant to read I feel!**
Now we all know that Mrs Pennyworth likes to stay clean, as this makes her feel happy and confident; this is why my friend Penny chooses to use Femfresh Intimate Wash.
Femfresh is usually found in your local chemist or supermarket in the 'Feminine Hygiene' section. The package differs from the above picture, as is more of a smooth cornered bottle, with a white lid, containing a pink push-up push-down top.
The 200ml bottle is clear, and shows a pale pink/peach coloured gel wash. The label tells you all you need to know; soap free, pH balanced, hypoallergenic, gentle enough for everyday use, and lastly, dermatologically & gynaecologically tested.
The back label gives a little more information with regards to the ingredients ("enriched with aloe vera and camomile"). It also mentions how the low pH of Mrs Pennyworth can be upset by ordinary soaps, and because Femfresh has been 'specially formulated', it will help her maintain a healthy pH balance, whilst giving 'long lasting freshness'.
I'm sure you are all aware that Penny can also be a sensitive kinda girl, and her pH can get upset when that old rotter; miserable Auntie Flow comes to tea.
She also gets quite down in the dumps if her Cousins; Miss Cystitis or T.H. Rush ever pop in, but using Femfresh cheers her up very quickly, and helps to quickly soothe away any irritation she is suffering.
Femfresh isn't fragrance free, but the smell is incredibly subtle and gentle. This allows Penny to feel fresh as a daisy, but without the irritation that usual shower gels can often leave her with.
To freshen up, you only need a very small amount. The gel is quite runny, so be careful you don't squeeze out too much. It lathers up just like a regular body wash, and washes off just as easily, so Penny feels satisfied that she is clean.
Penny used to feel slightly embarrassed about buying such a wash, but then realised; we have specially made individual products for our tootsies, faces, hands etc, why not for our Mrs Pennyworth?!
There is absolutely nothing embarrassing about staying clean (and using a product that is specially formulated not to cause irritation). In fact, my friend Penny was so impressed with the product, that she asked me to investigate the range further. Thus we found out that they have special refreshing wipes, deodorants, and other washes (further details can be found on www.femfresh.co.uk).
Femfresh Intimate Wash retails at around £2.29, and is widely available.
It is a worthwhile investment to keep Penny happy, and she uses it every time she has a shower, and finds that it actually helps to ward off visits from her nasty & unwelcome cousins!
Gals of all ages; if you haven't tried this, pop it in your basket/trolley next time you're out.
Any guys reading this, I'd suggest that it's probably best not to just 'plonk' this product down in front of your partner without any prior discussion - some offence may be caused! This would most likely lead to your Mr Darcy not being allowed near Mrs Pennyworth for quite sometime!!
The Femfresh range is specially developed to cleanse and refresh the most sensitive area of your body. The sensitive formulas are gentle to your skin and all products are dermatologically & gynaecologically tested.
I'm reviewing the feminine wash - a PH balanced soap free and hypoallergenic delicately fragranced product which has extracts of chamomile and aloe vera.
There is also a deodorant spray and cleansing wipes.
The feminine wash comes in a 200ml clear oval shaped bottle. White lid. Actual wash is a peach colour.
Use daily as part of your usual bathing routine, or when you've got your period as your pH changes then. Please note it's for external use only.
DOES IT WORK?
Personally I find it works. It's a lot gentler than using regular soaps or shower gels. It makes me feel very clean and fresh down there which gives me more confidence in the bedroom and therefore makes hubby a very happy man ;-)
WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN?
Yes. I use it daily and a bottle normally lasts about a month. I've even caught hubby using it a couple of times!
Even if you don't want to use it daily, it's handy to keep a bottle in the bathroom cabinet just incase you suddenly get any irritations from a sudden change in your pH.
This can be caused by many things such as taking antibiotics, being pregnant, after intimacy, taking the contraceptive pill, Heat and sweat caused by exercise or tight clothing, your monthly cycle and some perfumed or high pH wash products.
The wipes are handy to keep in your handbag or take on your summer hols.
Costs around the £2.50 mark. Differs from shop to shop. Look out for regular discounts in Boots and Superdrug. Often cheaper to buy on the high street once you've paid p&p with online purchase.
I came across this product when a friend showed it to me and said how good it was. I love to hear people's experiences first hand so I thought I would give it a go. As I trusted her opinion.
Fem fresh is ph balanced so it is as good as using water but leaves you feeling fresh for hours. And it smells great too. The smell is very feminine.
I think with some products, they try and mask smells but I feel with the fem fresh it actually cleans down there, properly. Which is great for my confidence in the bedroom! And my boyfriend loves it too.
You can buy this product for around £3.50 from most supermarkets or pharmacies. The bottle tends to lat for a month if you use it everyday.
If you haven't used the product before you may have trouble finding it with the picture above as the packaging has changed. It looks fore modern but its still peach in colour.
You can also buy feminine wipes for when your on the go and a spray which is a bit like deoderant but for down there.
I would reccomend this to any woman.
A rather nasty personal experience has led me to try this product. Normally I would say such products are a gimmick, a waste of money and not necessary. My views have now changed and I won't go back to using soap, shower gels and the like in my nether regions. Obviously it's a matter of personal choice but I would like to explain to you how I came to this decision and why I feel that the good people of dooyoo can benefit from such a product. ~~~~ LIFE BEFORE FEMFRESH~~~~ Like most people I enjoyed taking a shower in the morning to try and get me in to some state of consciousness. It wasn't just a way of keeping clean but of waking up the mind and body ready to face the day ahead. My hair gets greasy during the night and there is nothing worse than walking around with your hair looking like you've being doing handstands over the chip pan. I find it really refreshing to have a good scrub (or get someone else to do the scrubbing) and wake up feeling refreshed. One of the problems I seem to have is that every shower gel I have tried irritates my doodah (for those of you not familiar with technical terms, it means vagina) I love the smell of products like Radox and Source but I just end up very sore. They are fantastic for invigorating the senses and cleaning the skin but they are so harsh that they are not the best things to use on the most sensitive parts of our body. Not everyone has sensitive skin and even if you don't feel physically irritated by these products they can affect our body. A lot of fragranced products can actually alter the PH balance of our skin. The doodah has it's own PH balance and acidity levels and when these change you can become prone to infections and irritations. This is why you should never try and clean inside your doodah as it can cause no end of problems. Feminine washes are only recommended for external use as the doodah has it's own way of cleaning itself internally. Aft
er my daily shower I was not only left with beautifully clean skin, I could hardly walk! What was I to do apart from just using plain old water? ~~~~THE DISCOVERY OF FEMFRESH~~~~ This was no accident, although I had been researching products that may be suitable for my extra sensitive skin something made me go in search at the unearthly hour of 9.30 p.m. The dentist had given me a course of antibiotics and unfortunately they caused me to suffer with Thrush. Now I absolutely hate this word so once again I will be replacing it. From now on Thrush will be known as Magpie. So the 'Magpie' came with a vengeance and as I have not suffered from this affliction for some time I was not prepared. I will not go in to the different treatments of 'Magpie' in this op other than to say I generally use Canesten and hoped that I would be able to get some at this time of night. The Chemists in Oldham were all shut so I had to hope that a visit to Asda would suffice my needs. Off I trotted (as I couldn't walk) with my list of things to help alleviate my discomfort. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure (not) of this problem I will explain a little. There is an incredible itch, and when I say incredible I mean that once you start scratching, rubbing or whatever you do to try and get rid of the itch, you can't stop. The more you scratch the more it itches as you are irritating the condition and it becomes a vicious circle. This then causes inflammation and pain on passing water. You just want to cry, as I did. Thankfully Asda was still open and I scuttled to the medicine isle to search from my magical cure. I found the Canesten and bought some to keep me going until I could get the doctors. I had also heard that live yoghurt can be very beneficial in treating the condition and as you can only apply Canisten a few times a day I thought this would be good to use in-between (Ha! Ha!) Now you can imagine t
hat this was going to be rather messy, so what could I do to keep myself as clean as possible without causing further irritation? A visit to the isle for sanitary protection brought me my answer. There above me was Femresh, the range consisted of deodorant, feminine wash and cleansing tissues. The tissues were a good idea if you were going to be out and about but only contained 12 and they were getting on for a couple of pounds. Now I'm not that paranoid that I need to use deodorant down there and as I?m not a dog I didn't think anybody was going to be sniffing my ass either! This left the feminine wash. ~~~~WHAT PROMPTED ME TO BUY IT~~~~ I picked up the bottle to read about it. I was glad to see that on the front of the bottle it said 'dermatologically and gynaecologically tested' now the later made me think that it must be good as this is one thing I haven't seen on a product before. It also stated that it was soap free, this meant it was going to be less of an irritant and not as drying on the skin. It also contains an anti bacterial agent, which can only be good if you suffer from infections. Let's face it; I think the Dettol would sting a bit! It comes in a see-through plastic bottle so you can see that the colour of the gel is a nice feminine peach colour; with a peach colour plastic flip up lid. The colour also gives a soft impression, not one that would make you think the product would be harsh on the skin. Of course I had to flip it up and have a smell. This was really pleasant, almost like the baby products. Not too strong, just gentle enough to give off a pleasant aroma that seemed quite light. The bottle contains 150ml and cost around £1.80. It may not be a very large bottle but if you think about how much of this you are going to use it will last rather a long time. It isn't really any more expensive than your average shower gel, just a little smaller. I was convinced to buy this
and popped it in my basket along with some panty liners. I was dreading getting to the check out as with Canesten , Live Yoghurt, Panty Liners and Femfresh it was quite obvious what I was suffering from. I made sure I picked a lady for fear of embarrassing a male checkout assistant and hoped they weren't watching me walk out with my uncomfortable walk! ~~~~HOW EFFECTIVE AND USEFUL IS FEMFRESH~~~~ Well I am glad to say that after applying Yoghurt and Canesten that I had something to freshen me up. Another good time to use this would be when your on your periods. I got in the shower and decide to just use Femfresh and no other product at all. I placed an amount around the size of a 10 pence piece in the palm of my hand and added some water to lather it up. It did lather somewhat and it felt nice and silky to the touch. This amount was sufficient enough to cover my whole body and it was nice and gentle on the skin. In comparison to another product I bought which says it matched the 'PH' balance of your skin, this was much better. The other product claimed to be gentle on the skin but I still found it irritated me quite badly. Had I actually found something that cleaned and didn't cause any adverse reactions? Yes! It didn't sting when I used it even though I was very sore and it didn't make me itch any more than I was already. It removed all traces of the treatments for 'Magpie' that I had been using and made me feel confident. You will be pleased to hear that I am now better and the Femresh has still not caused any irritation and I am happily continuing to use it. The price hasn't put me off and in fact I would have even paid more for this. Probably up to the £3.00 mark now I know that it works. I will consider buying some of the cleansing tissues for when I am out an about as the packet was small enough to carry in your handbag. I wouldn't get paranoid about needing to be clean and not smel
ling but it's nice to have that extra confidence especially when the 'Magpie' is around. On visiting the website www.femfresh.co.uk I discovered there was also a powder and some wipes available with the prices indicated. The website gave basic information and you can apply for free samples. Unfortunately they have run out due to demand but it is worth popping back to the site to try before you buy. I certainly would recommend them. It doesn't tell you on the website the ingredients so here's the boring bit: Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Cocamidopropyl betaine, Parfum, Triclosan, 2-Bromo2 ?Nitropropane-1, 3-Diol, Citric Acid, Magnesium Choloride, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisiazolinone, C1 14720, C1 15510 Now that doesn't mean anything to me but if you have nay allergies to them I'm sure they will. Thanks for reading.
I’d never really thought about using a different product for washing a different part of my body. From the neck downwards I usually slap on the normal shower gel, soap or body wash, but if you think about it we use special shampoo for the hair, toothpaste for our teeth and cleanser for the face, so why not be kind and treat our private parts. They are after all one of the most sensitive and delicate areas of the body and if we’re not happy down there then we’re generally not happy. Anyway, I decided to see what was out there in the name of intimate feminine washes. I came across Femfresh in the sanitary protection section in Boots (why not?) and thought I’d give it a try. Being a bit prone to cystitis and general discomfort in that area, I thought this would be good because it’s not a soap. Aiming to keep clean and fresh, use of soap can actually aggravate the problem by changing the pH of the skin, thus causing itching and burning. Femfresh was nice to use. It has a fresh smell, but not over-perfumed. It lathered up like normal soap and rinsed off easily. It has an anti-bacterial action so there must be some good going on down there and unlike most anti-bacterial agents it doesn't burn or sting. For a while I thought that I did feel different, but in fact this could have been psychological. I may as well just use a less harsh soap instead. I wouldn’t say this is a bad product, but maybe not entirely necessary. It would be good to compare it with other similar products to see if a feminine wash really is better than ordinary soap.
A delicately fragranced, gentle altemative to soap, specially formulated for intimate use, with an antibacterial agent for odour free confidence every day of the month
