SASS - Intimate range

  1. SASS Website
Feminine hygiene is a topic women are well versed in, yet we rarely communicate our opinions on. We have "aunt flo's" visit which make's me feel desperate to keep fresh and clean. It's already embarrassing to grab and run in the chemist to pick up emergency essentials, desperate to look the other way.  SASS want to eliminate embarrassment when it comes to purchasing feminine hygiene products. This is one package i can safely say you wont be quick to hide.  

They say: 
At SASS we believe that women like you deserve to have something that fits your lifestyle.  This is why we have created a range of products that will help you feel your best, look your best and give everything. 
We believe all women should be able to be who they want to be. That’s why we promise all our products:
  • - Maintain your intimate harmony and help to prevent unwanted smells.
    - Are dermatologically tested & gynaecologist approved.
    - Have been tested by our SASS® sisters, never our pets.
SASS Full Range
Intimate Purifying Cleanser
Start each day fresh with SASS Intimate Purifying Cleanser. Our gentle formula soothes intimate skin and helps to:
- Maintain intimate harmony
- Ensure everyday freshness
- Gently purify
When to use it: Everyday in the shower, you’ll wonder what you did before finding SASS Purifying Cleanser. Our Intimate Purifying Cleanser has been created for daily use when washing. Gently apply two pumps and then rinse with fresh water. 
My thoughts : This cleanser is light and leaves you feeling so fresh. This summer has been just so hot that when "Aunt flo" is calling, we all want that extra feeling of cleanliness. So I've been using this not just in the shower but anytime i want to freshen up.  This cleanser is freshly scented with a light formula and a firm favourite of mine.  I will be repurchasing this and it's a must have in my routine.
Freshness Gel 
Rushing from one challenge to the next can sometimes make it hard to stay fresh throughout the day. 
- Scent protection
- Maintain your intimate harmony
- Cool & refresh
When to use it: Use every day after your morning shower. Gently apply two pumps to your intimate area for all day protection. For best results, use after SASS® Intimate Purifying Cleanser. 
My thoughts : Perfect and easy to use without causing any irritation to the skin. This leaves me continuously feeling fresh with no issues of sensitivity or inbalance to my intimate area. The best product for keeping the skin moisturised and in amazing condition. Also gives some relief when sanitary protection can leave me feeling a little sore. 
PH Balanced Serum 
Lots of everyday things can cause pH imbalances leading to discomfort and compromise. Your intimate harmony being disrupted can bring you back down to earth with a bump. SASS pH Balanced Serum has been specially crafted to help cool, soothe and restore the intimate pH so you can get back to your best.
- Maintain Intimate Harmony
- Soothe and Calm
- Cool and Refresh
When to use it: When your intimate pH has been disrupted and things don’t feel quite right. Gently apply the serum around the area once or twice a day until you feel like you are back to your best. 
My thoughts : I found this to be an amazing. As i admittedly have a very heavy "aunt flo", which can leave me feeling sore and very sensitive. This calms any area where sanitary protection can cause dryness and imbalance's, really helping me to feel fresh and back to normal quicker then usual. As I usually dont have time before its my next "Aunt flo" to have some comfort. Noticed a real change with this product, it gave me a  sense that i wasnt fighting the clock to have time where i feel comfortable. So great for anyone whom has more heavy and demanding lady week's. 

Intimate Dryness Gel
At SASS we believe that intimate dryness shouldn’t hold you back. This gentle formulation can be applied manually to provide long lasting relief and hydration.
- Soothe
- Freshen

- Provide intimate hydration

When to use it: Once or twice a day to feel instantly hydrated and freshened. After washing, gently apply a drop of gel internally with your finger tip. You are unique - use as much as you like, once or twice a day. 
My thoughts : I experience dryness until the week after my dear old "aunt flo" visits. This time can be sore and generally very sensitive from the extra washing etc. So this really helped me be more comfortable and not squinting in pain. Heavy flow can be sore at the best of time's so the dryness gel is a welcome relief. This really did make the weeks less sore and uncomfortable. 

Refreshing Mist
It’s not always easy to stay feeling fresh when you are dashing from one challenge to the next. The Refreshing Mist’s odour neutraliser, crisp fragrance and its small subtle pack. Will refresh you anytime, anywhere, so you can fill your days without worry.
- To refresh anytime, anywhere
- Scent protection

- Crisp subtle fragrance

When to use it: Anytime, anywhere, when you want to feel instantly refreshed. Gently spritz the Refreshing Mist on & around your intimate area. Get ready to rock your day & night. 
My thoughts : Hands down my favourite product in the range. (Well top of the bunch as they all are amazing, for my needs) All i need say is summer & "aunt flo", this is a little bottle of goodlyness you can take anywhere. Plus the packaging does not draw any attention so its a life saver when you want to freshen up. I wasn't left feeling so self conscious at my appointments with this in my bag, especially on my heavier flow days. The scent is light and gives lasting confidence without causing any irritation or sensitivity. I cant use scented feminine products due to sensitivity, so this is the perfect product for me.  

Perfect Skin Concentrate
Have you ever felt that no sooner than you’ve finished shaving, or waxing that it’s time to start again? At SASS® we wanted to change the constant intimate hair battle. Use after wax or shave, this serum is suitable for intimate use and has a unique formulation to protect against skin imbalances, soothe and hydrate the intimate area and help prevent ingrown hairs and hair regrowth. A prefect mix for perfect skin.
- Prevent ingrown hairs
- Reduce hair re-growth
- Soothe post-shave or wax
When to use it: After you shaved or waxed your intimate area. For perfect skin, gently massage two pumps onto the dry shaved or waxed area. If you shave, use SASS Intimate Soothe & Smooth Shave Gel.

My thoughts : When i shave the one thing i don't enjoy is the thought of regrowth. This product I hoped would calm any irritation etc, as regrowth is not a pleasant process. I cant use chemical removal so i have to shave, so the less times i need to do this task the better. I shave when its grown past stubble stage. It soothes skin post shaving and it didn't feel itchy or irritable. I'll need to test it longer to assess regrowth but its not been as noticable as it was before using this product. So im hoping this is a sign it's working towards slowing down the time between shaving.
Sportive Recovery Serum 
Whether you’re training for a marathon or doing a quick spin class, intense activity can take its toll on your intimate area. SASS® Sportive Recovery Serum has been expertly designed to help soothe, cool and moisturise post-workout skin, whilst also providing antimicrobial protection against skin imbalances.
- Cool & comfort
- Soothe irritation
Relieve after intense activity
When to use it: After any intense exercise. Jump in the shower, dry then gently massage a small amount of ‘Recover Me’ onto your intimate skin. For best results, apply SASS Sportive Protection Barrier Cream before exercise. 
My thought's : I cant exercise currently due to dr's advice, this product was given to a panel member to try and relay there thoughts back.  
They say : After a long and very active day i can feel sore and sensitive, where clothes rub or just the heat makes my skin become irritated. It can be painful if i have recurrant days and more then likely i will grin and bear it. I wasnt aware that any products could help this specifically. After using this it  really does help to calm red, sore areas in particular and helped to lessen the discomfort. This really did help protect the skin from excessive irritation and during the most humid of summer's.

 Protection Barrier Cream
Intense activity can take its toll on your intimate area. At SASS® we don’t want irritation or skin friction to stop you pushing your limits. This cream provides protection against intimate microbial imbalances, reduces skin friction and provides ultra hydration during exercise.
- Reduce skin friction
- Soothe & hydrate
- During intense activity
When to use it:  Before exercise, shield your skin with a small amount of the Protection Barrier Cream. For best results  follow with SASS Sportive Recovery Serum after exercise.
My thought's : I cant exercise currently due to dr's advice, this product was given to a panel member to try and relay there thoughts back.  
They say : This really did help protect the skin from excessive irritation and during the most humid of summer's. My job being so active has meant that the Barrier cream and Recovery serum really protected skin which easily can break down.  Really great well thought out and packaged product's. Great for your esteem and also using during lady week. 
Intimate Soothe & Smooth Shave Gel
SASS® Intimate Soothe & Smooth Shave Gel has been specially designed to allow smoother shaving in your most intimate area. Regular shaving gels are often unsuitable for intimate use and can cause bacterial imbalances. This formula is pH balanced, crystal clear so you can shave precisely. With a unique formula to protect against ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
- Crystal clear, non-foaming gel
- Designed for intimate use

- Helps reduce ingrown hairs

When to use it: Whenever you need to shave your intimate area. After washing, apply in the shower. Wait for one minute before shaving. Shave precisely & then rinse with lukewarm water. 
My thoughts : Finally a shaving gel that you can see what your doing, plus not feel as though your at risk of doing some serious damage. Its not a plesant experience so any product that makes getting the job done more efficient gets a big thumbs up. Also it leaves your skin feeling nicely hydrated and no stinging or razor burning sensation. Quickest shave ive ever achieved and felt more confident in doing so. 

Now i was interested to gauge the opinions of other women around me on what impression SASS give's.  {I did not say or specify what the product's were used for so everyone guessed skincare of some description.}

Packaging & presentation: 
The overall impression was the packaging is very high end and gives an expensive finish to the product.

What is SASS used for ? 
The word "intimate" was the biggest clue and only noticed on closer reading of the box. Then it was clear this was a feminine product, which left everyone in shock. Aa the positive message on the box and presentation is that of a beauty brand. So top marks to SASS there. 

Would you use and purchase SASS ?
The women would use these products and be comfortable on purchasing them. They liked the scent and range offered, saying this covered the elements women look for. 

Overall View
I have to say in very surprisingly impressed. I know of one other feminine hygiene brand and by the very name if it fell out if your bag, everyone would know its purpose. SASS deliver a discreet, professional and higher end look to there product with packaging alone. The product's themself's cater for every senario that a woman could need intimate products for, also if im totally honest these products would be perfect for men too. We both have sensitive area's they just look different. 

In talking to other women and testing these products for myself, i would have no qualm in ordering from SASS again. I would happily have any of the product's within my bag. Each product that helped me feel confident in myself weither it be when dear old "Aunt flo" was visiting or the weeks that followed made a huge difference. I personally have fibroids and very heavy plus unannounced menstration, that can stay for day's or weeks at a time and my breaks inbetween will be less and less. These product's not only helped me feel much more comfortable from the irritation of sanitary protection,plus dryness of constant washing. They gave me the option of using products which catered for feminine need's without causing additional inbalance or issues. My definate favourites for my need's would be the Refreshing mist, Cleanser, Dryness gel and Ph serum. (All of the products are fantastic) 

I cant thank SASS enough for allowing me to review there product's. Its made me see there is a range of products for women we can be proud to put in our shopping basket, without the worry of a strange sideways stare.
