Ever since we sparked a {#VULVALUTION} in 2019, we've been on a mission to kick-start frank conversations surrounding women’s health (and pleasure!); connecting you to straight-forward, transparent, female-centric brands is part and parcel of this ongoing, taboo-busting endeavour. With a swathe of arrivals entering our well-established {Sexual Pleasure & Wellness} category, what better time to discover a new hero or two — be it menopausalskin care, 100% organic cotton sanitary pads or a pulse-quickening sex toy.


Set yourself up for a date to remember with a toe-curlingly talented Smile Makers toy that definitely speaks your language. Nothing like those mouthy intellectual sorts that spout the odd line of Keats, {The Poet} is quite the (c)literature expert. Boasting three interchangeable mouths with different sizes and touch sensors on the sides, this cunning linguist simulates a passionate sucking movement on your clitoris to achieve body-shaking orgasms.


...on skin switch-ups with the {Menopause Faace Mask}. If you're going through perimenopause and menopause, chances are you're reluctantly becoming reacquainted with breakouts but you don't need to let dwindling collagen levels and hormone fluctuations get the better of your skin — this cocktail of youth-boosting and anti-inflammatory ingredients will illuminate, soothe, plump and calm your skin.


Just as the skin on our face has a microbiome, so does the skin of our vulva. In the same way, it’s prone to imbalances and irritation — it's safe to say that shaving or waxing rituals certainly don't help! That's where Dr. Barbara Sturm's gynecologically tested V line comes in; designed to care for the delicate, intimate area with plant extracts and pre- and probiotics, the {V Wash} and {V Drops} help to maintain a healthy pH value, hydrate your skin, soothe irritation and prevent ingrown hairs.


Saturated with synthetic materials and fibres which can cause vulval discomfort, the feminine hygiene industry is dismayingly unconcerned surrounding the needs of menstruating individuals. That's where DeoDoc's 100% Cotton Pads come in - available in a range of weights from {Day} and {Night} to [Liners}! Ticking all of our boxes, these are made without viscose/rayon and non-chlorine bleached cotton, are unscented, FDA-approved and clinically tested to be non-irritating and hypoallergenic. Phewpf! But it doesn't stop there, they're also made from 100% biodegradable materials and are 100% vegan too.


A daily jumble of hormones, stress, medications and age can easily disturb the delicately balanced pH and ecosystem of yeast and probiotic species found in the vaginal microbiome. Here to support your vaginal and urinary tract health, HUM Nutrition's {Private Party} daily supplements promotes a healthy pH, microbiome and yeast balance using 10 billion organisms, three lactobacillus strains (commonly found in a healthy vaginal microbiome!) and concentrated cranberry extract powder for maximum efficacy.


Or should we say 'hands-free'? Mimicking the flutter of a tongue and suction of a mouth, the all-new Aer from {Dame Products} was created for those who find oral the key to unlocking the ultimate orgasm. A powerful arousal tool, this doesn’t vibrate but instead, uses pulses of air to deliver a thrill like no other. This uniquely designed suction toy creates a soft seal around your clitoris – great when you fancy a jump-start or crave a quick climax. And what’s more, like everything Dame, it’s designed with the user in mind – ergonomic, good-looking and versatile, to take you on a one-way trip to ecstasy.


An incredibly intelligent plaster to help you manage your period pain and cramps, the BeYou Patches are 100% natural and made from steam-distilled eucalyptus and peppermint-derived menthol that create a 'cooling tingle' on application. Long-lasting and slow-releasing, each patch slowly delivers a cramp-comforting sensation over 12 hours. The menthol and eucalyptus scent also provides a light, invigorating aroma that will help uplift you. Incredibly discreet, easy to apply and remove (they don't hurt like normal plasters!), you'll wonder how you ever went without these before - watch out trusty hot water bottle!
