Once I turned 50 I started to experience vaginal dryness associated with peri-menopause; other lubricants irritated my very sensitive skin and sexual intercourse was becoming a bit of a pain (in more ways than one!). I tried Sylk, which appealed to me because of its water-base and plant ingredients, and have found immediate relief from the uncomfortable dryness, with no skin irritation; odourless and non-sticky, it’s a great product.
Having been asked to review sylk intimate moisturiser after becoming more aware of my personal needs going through the menopause I was somewhat sceptical, but I was pleasantly surprised over how much this improved my day to day comfort. Applying a small drop each day has been of benefit, making me feel generally more comfortable, we use to use another product for intercourse but now there is no need this product does the trick, & the fact that it is available on prescription is an added bonus, I encourage your to try it, it’s worth it!
I have always been slightly apprehensive about using a vaginal moisturiser as i have very sensitive skin. Sylk is a plant based moisturiser so there was no irritation at all, a very small amount is all that’s needed, the instructions say 1 or 2 drops and it really did make things much more comfortable, there was no slimy feel either and no odour so once it’s applied only you know it’s there. Sex now feels as it should do without the pain from dryness so will have no hesitation of giving Sylk 5 stars.
I am 59 years old,and although me and my husband only have sex about 2 or 3 times a month I still like to feel comfortable and sexy, this product certainly does both.
I had been using another well known lubricant until i was sent Sylk to test, I really like this one as it is totally natural which I love, it is so easy to use. I first used it every other day now i only apply twice a week, it has no stickyness or odour to it and we both think it has improved our sex life (although i never told my husband before i started the product) he noticed straight away the difference. I will certainly recommend Sylk to all my friends. Thank you for giving me the chance to test this wonderful product!!
I have been using this product for approx two weeks now and i have found it has made things considerably better for me. I have used it on myself and my husband has used it once. Before i used it we quite often had to stop and use other form of cream as i got sore if i didn’t, but we have not had that problem since i started using just a tiny bit of the cream once, two or three times a week. This now seems to work for me and i am very pleased with the results.
I will definitely carry on using and would give it a star rating of five.
I was a little worried about using the Sylk product as I am really quite sensitive in that area and have had real problems using products for this type of thing. I had settled on KY as it seemed to cause the least problems for me.
But being at a certain time of life – menopausal then I decided to give Sylk a go – it is so much better than I had thought it would be. It is non smelly – a real bonus as some of these things have an awful smell.. non greasy – another huge bonus! and it didn’t cause any irritation at all which was my biggest fear. The biggest bonus of all was that it was all natural which pleased me as being bombarded as I have been through my life with all kinds of man made substances be it on your skin, hair or anywhere else it was a joy to find something that worked but was all natural. I have no problem at all in recommending this product to anyone reading this review.
Being a 30 something with dryness and soreness is something of an embarrassment, especially when getting intimate (or trying to!). In the past, I have tried various lubricants, moisturisers and exercises, all with very little effect. Lubricants are too slippery, uncomfortable and smell weird. Moisturisers help the dryness of the skin, but not the tightness. SYLK, however, is completely different. I only needed to use one drop and everything is easier. I use a small amount on tampons to help them in and out, and when intimate, again, a small amount is needed. There’s no slippery, sticky feeling, there’s no awful fake smell, and my skin feels moisturised and less tight. In fact, I am using it as a daily moisturiser, as well as a lubricant, and things are noticeably different! I would recommend SYLK to anyone who has dryness, tightness, or even just to use in place of their usual lubricant.
I am a psychosexual therapist, working in a GP practice and privately. Mary sent me some samples of Sylk and I give them to my women who I work with to overcome both primary and secondary vaginismus.
Good lubrication in conjunction with a graduated dilator/vaginal trainers use is vital and I have found Sylk to very good and a great aid for vaginismus sufferers. I have had a good success with these ladies most overcoming this miserable condition and enjoying a fulfilling and satisfying sexual intimacy. A few going on to enjoy pregnancy and having their long-awaited child.
Well done Sylk.
