NUS Orientation, good or bad?

A really balanced and well-informed post that does not resort to blaming, pointing fingers, and very clearly lays out the issues surrounding the whole mess.

I probably have no right to comment on the situation, but seeing how my peers have been let down by the blanket ban, and how this topic has been dominating my timeline and my conversations for the whole week- I can’t help but feel oddly involved in it all.

I share the author’s sentiments when she says that she finds some of the more sexual/physical activities uncomfortable. I ended up going to a university overseas instead of a local one, but I know for certain that there will be a line I refuse to cross, whether people regard me as being “conservative” or not, and I will make sure to speak up if I am uncomfortable. Everyone has different limits, and strangely some of the students regard the “ponding” incident to be no big deal, even though they tell us cheerfully that they avoided that camp date so as to not get dirty. Huh. “Whatever floats your boat”, as my boyfriend keeps parroting (driving me to no end of annoyance, honestly).

The blanket ban is a harsh and unfair punishment, but I can guess why they clamped down so hard on it. With the public thirsting for blood and the matter brought to the attention of corporations and foreign news companies alike, it would have seemed too lenient. Every year, we get this sort of news, and every year, the outrage dies out pretty quick. Nothing has been solved, and I hope the “black sheep” that people keep decrying will learn after facing the wrath from their fellow students, and clean up their act next year if they still have the chance.

Though… more ill-will is felt towards the public and the school, rather than the people who went too far. Oh well.

So recently, there was another huge hooha about how the orientation games in NUS are becoming increasingly sexualised. That article, followed by the one about the “strong disciplinary action” NUS will be taking, prompted me to post some of my thoughts on Facebook (scroll down for just the text alone):

Lactacyd Revitalize Youth Reviving Daily Feminine Wash

MY EXAMS ARE OVER!!

HALLELUJAH!!

Today’s post will be kinda sensitive and all *cough* because I will be reviewing a feminine wash. Well, that’s a euphemism actually. Feminine wash sounds way better than… well… *cough*

(Gosh I think I will be coughing a lot in this post)

I have decided to put off the mystery post (fine, it’s a nail polish post) because I have school right tomorrow and painted nails aren’t allowed. *aggrieved*  

 <— me going to school

So this is how it looks like on the outside. It’s 250ml- (look at the picture)

 

so I expect it will last for a long time. My friend recommended this to me- the crazy thing is, she uses it as conditioner for her hair and also as a face wash!! Crazy right? Then I went to do some research on other feminine washes like ‘Summer’s Eve’ (hey my name!) and ‘Dove’ and I found tons of reviews of people doing the same thing!

I’m still kind of stunned. I don’t think I’ll be using it as a face wash but I might try it as a conditioner. Apparently it works because it’s acidic like conditioners (pH 3.5).

I got this during a sale by Beauty Language (it’s invading malls everywhere in Singapore) and initially I was looking for the ‘White Intimate’ or the normal one, but I didn’t see it on sale so I just got this since it was the only one instock. I was like ‘I’m not exactly old but oh well’.

AND THEN I SAW THE OTHER KINDS ON SALE THE NEXT DAY. GRRRRR.

 

Anyway, it came with a free pump nozzle (separate) and feminine wipes to keep yourself clean on the go.  

I really love the smell of this thing- it smells so mild, like what you would use for babies, and I have been using it for crazy things like:

1) Washing my hands

2) Cleaning random containers because it smells nice

3) Mixing it with my foot scrub in hopes the acid will somehow kill off my dead skin

I really wouldn’t advise you to try all these though. At your own risk  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 Okay, on to more proper things.

I’ll show you how it looks like- 

(that’s not a pimple- it’s a mole! I’m getting too lazy to watermark all my photos so just don’t steal them off me.)

It has this silver-y appearance, and produces quite a lot of foam when rubbed!

(after rubbing for a few seconds, without water! With water, more foam is produced- the foam helps to reach hard-to-reach areas!)

My skin always feels so soft and smooth after using this~  *happy face* 

I think this makes a good addition to your bathing routine. Normal soaps are usually alkaline and can harm your *cough* area, so… well… I’d suggest a trip to Lactacyd’s website so you can learn more about what is suitable for you! (and save me the awkward explanations)
