Hear from our customer how she found freedom from this uncomfortable condition with a simple solution.

“I had been having yeast infection on and off since I got married in year 2000. My gynae had prescribed me both oral and pessary but the infections recurred. Furthermore, this also affected my chances of conceiving. I thought this problem will follow me throughout my life until Devotion recommended me to shower my concerned area with Seaweed Bath Firming. After using 1 bottle of Seaweed Bath Firming (about 2 months), the discharge was significantly reduced. I used to have to change 3 panty liners a day and now I only need 1. And I manage to conceive naturally thereafter!“
