Sage Personal Moisturizer and Lubricant Review and Giveaway!

Vaginal dryness is a real problem and often we are struggling with discomfort that we don’t realize is a result of it. Have you experienced a burning sensation in your vaginal area? Itching? Discomfort during sex? All this over some vaginal dryness? Well, yes. 

Vaginal dryness is sometimes associated with breastfeeding and childbirth, as some in this community may have experienced. Talk about a hormone roller coaster! As if your crying jags, mood swings and other strange symptoms weren’t enough to deal with! You’re still healing from childbirth, possibly trying to reengage in sex with your partner and taking care of a newborn baby. Now this! 

Fairhaven Health has a new product in their Vaginal Care and Comfort Collection. It’s called Sage Personal Moisturizer and Lubricant. Sage is water-based and designed to replenish your natural lubrication and provide temporary relief from vaginal dryness. Sage is formulated to match the salt concentration and pH of your tissue. 

Vaginal dryness is a result of a drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is a hormone found in females that helps keep vaginal tissue thick and healthy with lubrication, elasticity and acidity. Besides childbirth and breastfeeding other things associated with vaginal dryness include cigarette smoking, antidepressants, cancer treatments, menopause, estrogen medications, certain medical conditions and even douching or excessive stress and exercise.  

Vaginal dryness is a result of the same body changes that make getting pregnant difficult while breastfeeding. It is not permanent and it will get better as your body continues to recover from childbirth and as your breastfeeding journey evolves. However, vaginal dryness can return during menopause and even perimenopause (the transition time to menopause.) 

Sage Personal Moisturizer and Lubricant, as with all of Fairhaven Health’s vaginal care products, is made without estrogen, parabens, glycerol or coating oils; all of which have been associated with a variety of health concerns. Sage is formulated with Clary Sage that works as a natural antibacterial as well as lactic acid and xylose that work together to foster a healthy reproductive system by supporting healthy pH and fuel for friendly bacteria to grow. Sage is a 2-in-1 gel for moisturizing and lubricating during sex. It can used internally and externally. 

Vaginal dryness can be really uncomfortable and you might not think that something so small such as lubrication in the vagina can be the cause of it. But it can! Restoring that lubrication can help you feel more comfortable. And as you begin to have sex again after childbirth it’s a great idea to have a lubricant. Many of us are nervous about engaging in sexual activity after childbirth. I mean a baby just came out of there! Who knew they were THAT BIG when they came out? The idea of sex after this can be quite daunting. You might still be sore. Vaginal dryness can add extra pain and even slight bleeding during sex. 

Vaginal dryness is not something you need to just “deal with.” Your quality of life is important. Do not neglect yourself while in the midst of the chaos of new parenthood. Being uncomfortable is not OK, it can make daily living difficult and Sage Personal Moisturizer and Lubricant can help you! Sage is silky-smooth and feels like our natural fluids. It won’t irritate your skin, stain your clothes or sheets and can be rinsed off quickly unlike silicone or oil-based lubricants.
