The first time I noticed the SweetSpot Labs product line was on a visit to a legendary Chicago waxer, widely known for her speed and skill working below the belt. Before setting to work on my girl parts, she jovially handed me a little package of wipettes and gave me a moment to prepare myself. This was no Cottonelle. The beautifully designed package boasted a gently formulated refresher, alcohol-free and pH balanced. The SweetSpot line is available unscented or in basil grapefruit, citrus galbanum and geranium lavender. Why not? We spend a small fortune on every other inch of our bodies, certainly our proverbial sweet spots deserve a little TLC.
I forgot about SweetSpot for some time until I recently spied a product display in a local beauty boutique. I picked up a bottle of the geranium lavender gentle wash ($12). I put it in the master bath and heard the predictable giggles when my husband spotted it. It's a nice product, as mild as promised, a little special something for my special something. I thought I was a SweetSpot devotee until one shower when I paused to read the label, which is how I pass the time while deep conditioning my hair. Mixed in with all of the good natural ingredients, I noticed methylparaben, propylparaben, Yellow 5 and Red. While I try to avoid parabens and dyes wherever possible, I'm not a hardliner. But seriously? The thought of putting those controversial substances directly onto my baby-maker? Meh. I won't be buying any more SweetSpot for mine.
