I actually had a post scheduled for today, that I just HAD to bump off the schedule to tell you about this most mind-boggling piece of beauty news I’ve come across in recent times. Ok, this isn’t quite THE MOST mind-boggling, but it seriously boggles my mind.
Now, I know many people love using highlighter to give skin a glow – a healthy glow, I might add, not greasy shine. I don’t use them much, but even I have my affordable highlighter favourites. The difference between that, and The Perfect V Shades of V Very V Luminizer is that mine go on my FACE!
Did you think that the Shades of V Very V Luminizer, a brand new product that hails from Denmark, was to give you, what Asians so crave – the V-shape face? PERISH THAT THOUGHT! π
The Shades of V Very V Luminizer does not go anywhere near your face. It has nothing to do with sharpening your jaw line or giving you that kawaii V-shape face. It is meant for use on a body part lower than your jaw line.
Much much lower LOL! π
The Shades of V Very V Luminizer is a highlighter for your vagina.
*insert stunned silence*
*insert goggle-eyed blank faced emoji*
Yes, that’s how I felt too when I first read about it. The Mashable article was scathing, saying that this was just one more item to make women feel bad about our bodies. But to be honest, can we take a product like this seriously enough to feel bad about our bodies?
I mean, I’m serious. Give us women more credit than that.
Why in the freaking world would I need a highlighter for my VAGINA?! π―
The company claims that the Very V Luminizer will highlight, soften and illuminate. ILLUMINATE. Does someone need to see in the dark? It gets even more mind boggling, when they claim that this product will give “Luminious iridescent color to add some extra prettiness to the V” WHAT?! π― It doesn’t actually tell you where to apply it, since they only call it a V – like Vagina or Vulva are dirty words, mind.
Perhaps this V Luminizer might do well in a nudist colony, cosmetically speaking. Few of us will be parading our nether regions to impress the general public otherwise.
But from a health perspective, keep this, and any other so-called vagina cosmetics treatments away from your vagina. Your vagina can take care of itself, and in fact, most doctors recommend just washing it with water or a mild soap on the outer regions, if necessary. If there is bacteria in there, good. You need that bacteria. As long as they maintain a healthy PH level, and don’t get infected, you’re fine.
Above all, you DO NOT need to apply any cosmetics on your vagina.
Did your mind explode reading this?
If the idea of the Perfect V makes you feel bad about your body, as Mashable implies, I think you really need to have a rethink about your self-esteem. I don’t even think a vagina is supposed to glow.
