I Tried Mons Mist & My Vagina Said YAS

Bush 2020 is the new campaign.

Women's Health

We are all gathering our thoughts and opinions on the election coming sooner than later in 2020. For most of us, it's an easy choice since all we really want is to get 45 up outta the White House. From Bernie Sanders to Kamala Harris, the candidates are overflowing with campaign strategies. Well, there's a campaign more important than anything the democrats or republicans can argue: BUSH 2020. We aren't talking about George and the Texas, fam. We are talking about trashing the societal standard that women have to shave their vaginas and fully embracing being a wild woman with a bush.

The thought and conversation about pubic hair makes me feel uncomfortable and that's mostly because Gillette and European Wax Center commercials have insinuated that bare is the only way. I can't even lie – I will rock a bush unless I know that I'm getting some; "some" as in sex. The hassle and pain of removing hair from my vagina is just tew much. The debate on body hair has been ongoing since the beginning of time. For many of us, it's like autopilot to shave, wax or use a method to remove hair from our bodies. Well, Flamingo wants to promote "grow-choice".

That being said, I decided to take Flamingo up on their claims and gave their Mons Mist a try. Here's what you should know:

✔️ pH balanced ✔️ Gynecologist and dermatologist tested ✔️ Easy mist application

As a conditioning spray, Mons Mist was created to help exfoliate the skin. With a short ingredients list that includes botanical extracts, jojoba oil, and coconut oil, Mons Mist prides itself in being exactly what your skin and pubic hair needs at every growth stage -- whether you prefer shaving, waxing or no hair removal at all. The fact that it exfoliates allows hair follicles to absorb hydration more thoroughly, and more hydrated hair follicles means less itchy or uncomfortable hair growth.

Vaginas are the most precious thing on this planet and as a proud owner of one, I must admit that it takes intention when taking care of her. I am usually super hesitant when it comes to feminine products because I realize how gentle and sensitive my vagina is, but when I saw that Mons Mist is pH balanced and gynecologist tested, I was sold.

My Thoughts:

Overshare Alert: During my review of the product, I was in between waxes so hair was there and it was the perfect time for some conditioning. When applying the mist, I did notice that it had a nice, refreshing yet oily finish that made for soft skin. The first couple of sprays were a little thick, so I had to rub it in. It made me realize that while my vagina conditions and self-cleanses, that doesn't mean my skin has the same capabilities. The mist was exquisitely hydrating which helped deter ingrown hairs, irritation and redness when I shaved a small area after using Mons a few times throughout the week.

Overall, I approve this product because it gave my skin just the exfoliation and nourishment it needed during this transition time.
