I Tried A Vajacial -- A Facial For My Vagina

My vagina is rejoicing.

I Tried It

Let's be real, ladies. We put a lot of emphasis on our yonis and making sure that they look (and smell) the part in hopes that will get stellar reviews from a guy we hit up on that hotline bling. Or maybe you have a significant other that you want to surprise--keeping the fire hot by keeping it interesting.

Whatever the case, we as women go through a lot to show extra love to our lady parts, including trying the latest and greatest procedures that promise a pretty punani.

So when my friend tagged me in an Instagram post for Kimberly Grimes, who was offering a one-of-a-kind experience for her intimate care company VAVAVOOM, I was all in. After browsing the site, I opted for the vajacial (vagina facial) because it "targets irritating ingrowns, below-the-belt blackheads and hyperpigmentation," and scheduled my appointment.

On the day of my appointment, I arrived to the studio and waited upstairs while Kimberly finished with the client that was before me. I admit that I was nervous. I never had been waxed before because I do my feminine maintenance at home. I even "Naired" beforehand because I wasn't going to have anyone talking about me in their head. No, honey! Now, I volunteered myself to spread my legs wide open for a complete stranger. What was I getting myself into?!

When it was my turn, I was given the privacy to partially disrobe and get comfortable on the table. The soft music playing in the background helped calm me down. Kimberly made me feel really at ease, especially since I had never received such a service before. It was like chatting with one of my girlfriends while I was given hot towel and exfoliating treatments.

While removing my ingrown hairs (and being so unfazed by it), she explained the common misconceptions many women have when it comes to their vagina. What we think are ingrown hairs are simply congested pores (I had some of those as well) due to dead skin build up or irritation of the bikini line to our panties constantly rubbing against our skin, especially panties with a lot of dyes. Simply put, it's vaginal acne. I have what I like to call "thick girl thigh rub", so keeping the inside of my thighs constantly smooth has always been a challenge. She exfoliated my inner thighs with gentle, professional-grade products and finished with antibacterial oils.

After my vajacial, my skin felt silky smooth and I was given a bottle of V Serum, which is like a mild peel to keep my pores from getting congested resulting in vaginal acne. I was to apply it to my thighs and intimate area twice a day, and put on a "no panty plan" to help my skin irritation. I was advised to wear pure cotton panties and to stay away from the ones with dyes as much as possible. She also told me to give my skin time to breathe by not wearing any at all. I have been using the V Serum regularly and it has kept my skin smooth and helped with hyperpigmentation. The no panty plan has also helped with my bikini line irritation as well.

I highly recommend that you try a vajacial. Many women talk freely about facials, massages, manis, pedis, and other spa treatments they receive, but don't talk openly about issues with their skin in their vaginal area and how they are treating them. If we take conversations beyond our close group of friends, I think we will find out most of our confusion and worries will be alleviated.

Have you had a vajacial? If not, what's stopping you?

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
