Women are more meticulous when it comes to self-care products. With monthly periods and hormonal-driven dilemmas, it’s no wonder capitalists took advantage of this to create necessary and specific products—to the point of novelty—for women. And we’re not complaining, really.

We list down actual products made for women’s specific problems—too specific even. These are up for you to judge:

Armpit Sweat Pads

With the heat, it's only a matter of time 'til it makes you sweaty enough to be baskil. Yikes. If your roll of deodorant isn’t enough to hide the armpit sweat, sweat pads to save your pits and your clothing from sweat stains. Think of it as menstrual pads but for the ‘pits. Sweat pads are a thin absorbent fabric that sticks to a shirt once placed. Sweat pads come in disposable and reusable versions. 

Armpit Sweat Pads are available at Lazada and Shopee.

Nipple Tapes

Sometimes it's a style bummer to wear a bra—especially with plunging necklines, off-shoulders, or bareback dresses in season. Sometimes, being able to cover your nipple area is enough, thankfully nipple tapes are in store. Nipple tapes are used to patch nipples to achieve smooth shape underneath the clothing. Local lifestyle store, Bench, offers disposable (169php) and silicone (179.75php) option of this handy necessity.

Vagina Sheet Mask

Contrary to popular belief, the term ‘vagina’ does not refer to the whole female genital—vagina is the inner lining that connects to the vulva which is the whole outer part. Unlike other parts of our skin, vulva skin is much more sensitive. Here's when the Two Lips Blackout Vagina Sheet Mask comes into play. It claims to soothe, detoxify, brighten and moisturize to rejuvenate the vulva. Since it rejuvenates it’s the product to use after you have your nether regions shaved or waxed.

Two Lips Blackout Vagina Sheet Mask is available at Strip Manila Branches. For more information visit www.strip-manila.com or follow Strip Manila on Facebook and Instagram.

Female Urinal Funnel

Having to pee is a lot more complicated for women than it is for men, especially in the absence of a proper restroom. A Female Urinal Funnel might help solve this dilemma. This urination device made of silicone is shaped in a way where a female can do pee while standing up. This can be a true option when traveling, backpacking, or camping.

Tampons

Tampons aren’t new to the world, yet a stranger to Filipinas because of the stigma around it, like how it can “devirginize” a female. Tampons are plugs of soft material inserted inside the vagina to absorb menstrual blood. A tampon is recommended to use when you’re into physical activities, or when you want to flaunt a bikini during your period. If you are to try this product why not go for Ladouce Tampons, a tampon product known for its organic materials and budget-friendly price, the brand also pushes for tampons acceptance in the country.

These are just a few useful to quirky products, and we bet there are crazier more specific ones outside the country. Which of these are you eyeing to try?
