After having my third child and second episiotomy I felt great in many ways, but I also felt a lot looser down there. It was at a point where sex just didn’t feel good anymore, my husband and I had to use large sex toys for me to reach vaginal orgasms, and even then it was still difficult to come.
So I did some research online about vaginal tightening. I set out trying new diets, kegel exercises and squats in an effort to regain some of my pre-child tightness.
One of the things I tried was vaginal tightening creams and gels. After a bit of trial and error with different creams, I eventually had some success, but it wasn’t exactly straightforward. In this guide, I am going to go over the best vagina tightening creams I wish I’d known about, as well as the ones you should avoid. Hopefully, this can save people some time and money doing trial and error.
List Of Creams (And Gels) I’ve Tried
Here are my creams that i’ve tried followed by a short summary and review
- V-Tight Gel
- IsoSensuals Vaginal Tightening Gel
- Like A Virgin Cream
Best Tightening Gel: V-Tight Gel
V-tight gel is what i’ve had the most success with so far, and the cream I wish I’d discovered before trying the other guys on this list.
It’s an opaque gel that you apply directly to the inside of your vaginal canal. Within a week I started to feel a bit tighter and after 2 months my partner agreed the difference was like “night and day”. It’s also got natural ingredients and didn’t sting my bits like some of the other creams on this list.
It’s made by a woman-owned Swedish company who is focused on safety and putting consumers before profits. If the gel doesn’t work for you they have a 100% money back guarantee, which I think shows how serious they are about helping women (nice to see for a change!) After a lot of frustration with other creams, I can’t recommend this one enough. Here’s a link to the v-tight gel website and more info.
IsoSensuals Vaginal Tightening Cream
I tried this product before I found V-tight gel. I used it for a few weeks and did start to feel tighter, but it also started to burn. I did some more research and found out it had harsh preservatives in it like chlorhexidine gluconate, an ingredient used in mouthwash, and definitely not what I want to put inside my body. I emailed the owner of V-Tight gel and she responded saying that V-Tight uses a mild amount of citric acid, which matches the vagina’s natural pH, and is a good natural preservative.
I feel like the IsoSensuals cream caused irritation, which made it tighter by swelling… This just made sex painful and not pleasurable. Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. But I do have fairly sensitive skin and might have had a bad reaction to it, maybe it works better for certain types of people.
Avoid: Like A Virgin Cream
This is a cream I decided to give a shot after finding it at my local sex shop. It is water-based and feels a lot like a lubricant like KY, except it’s thicker. The bad thing about this product is it really dries you out. The Propylene Glycol and Glycerin have a hype-osmolality, this means they suck the water out of the mucous membranes in your vagina. Essentially, I found out the hard way, it works by sucking the moisture out of your vagina. As you can guess, this is no way a pleasurable thing. It increases risk of abrasions, blistering, and skin tearing during sex, which increases the risk of STIs and other pathogens entering your bloodstream.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice, PEG–32, PEG-6, Water (eau), Propylene Glycol, Potassium Alum, Allantoin, Glycerin, Propylparaben, Methylparaben.
Benefits of Vagina Tightening Cream Over Other Techniques
Apart from the obvious benefit of extra confidence, there are some other reasons you might want to use a vagina tightening cream:
Pleasure – The added tightness from using a vaginal cream can make you experience deeper and more intense sex. I can feel my husband and he can feel me, more than before. If you have trouble orgasming vagina tightening gel can help your partner’s member put more pressure on your g-spot during sex.
Natural – Now I only use creams and gels that use all natural ingredients. I don’t want to put some petroleum oil-based gel inside my body. Manjakani essence and Witch Hazel are examples of two ingredients that are good ones to look for.
Easier – Exercise and diet definitely help with tightening too, but to get the best tightness I think all three methods should be combined: diet, exercises, and good tightening creams. It’s also the easiest way to get some extra tightness without the extra hours trying to figure out how to do squats and kegal exercises.
