But instead of using it on their privates, the women intend to smear the vaginal cream on their faces hoping it will tighten their skin and eliminate wrinkles. This comes after learning that women in the United Kingdom (UK) are engaging in the practise to get youthful skin. According to an article published on ‘The Daily Mail’, some women received free samples of the cream and began experimenting on their wrinkled faces. They shared their results on social media claiming the cream works “better than botox”. Now, some Jamaican women said they are planning to purchase the cream, which retails on Amazon for PS12.90 or just over J$2,000.
“Mi want it come here because me want my face tight too like how the bleaching a mash it up, me want to tighten it up back. Since it available online mi a go order it,” 34-year-old Sheron O’Hare, a hairdresser in downtown, Kingston, told THE STAR. “It don’t dangerous, from it make fi go inna the vagina, it can’t dangerous.” Luceana Thomas, 22, said she has no use for the cream now, but would try it the moment she starts wrinkling.
“Suppose when me reach 60 me still wah look young? Mi woulda try it dem time deh,” she said. But Nadine Powell, 43, along with multiple other women, shunned the practise calling it “crazy”. Powell however told THE STAR she knows many ‘bleachers’ who would readily try it.
