In a previous post, I mentioned that I was trying some new feminine products. And months later, I’m here to give my verdict on them!
“L” This is a company I have used for years before posting about it but they were very hard to get and take with me to China, so I opted for Chinese brands (and surprisingly, there was no language barrier when it came to figuring out feminine hygiene products). I really do love this brand, it was definitely my gateway into buying organic products. The feminine products are Chlorine free and have the ingredients listed on the package (take that big companies!). I do not use tampons, I’m not comfortable with anything going ‘up there’, so I prefer to use pads. None of my reviews will contain tampons until I feel comfortable to try them out. Anywho! Back to the topic, these pads are lite but they hold their weight. I can wear one for 3-4 hours without feeling flooded or like I’ve made a mess. I use the regular, super, and overnight pads as well as their panty liners for everyday use. I would say I’ve been using them since 2017 when I got sick of not knowing what was going on in and/or around my body. The L. Company does have a subscription service for the feminine products if you want them delivered every month to your door!
Next, The Honey Pot. I can honestly say, these are items I would purchase every single month. Shoot, I am going to purchase these every single month. The pads do take some getting used to but keeping it honest here, when I was in China, they used very similar ingredients in their pads that ‘cooled’ your v-. Now, I know what you’re saying, why should I cool it? Listen, it feels great and refreshing, at least to me. I recently seen an add for “The Honey Pot” on TV and I was so excited to tell my mom about them even though she’s past the menopause age. So, I used the regular, overnight, and super with these too. I also have the panty liners AND the ‘normal system’ feminine wash. I’m not into feminine washes but my hormones are difficult to control and it usually leads to some type of ‘itching’ down there when I’m ovulating and/or about to start my period. This completely prevented that and I’m sad that Target is about 30-45 minutes away from me. The products are amazing, they’re supportive, I didn’t have any leaks and it’s made my hormonal skin life so much better. You can purchase their products at Target or Online.
And last but not least Cora, these pads are holds a lot, I was surprised because they are super thin, they kind of melt right into your undies and make you feel like you’re not wearing anything. They don’t have any fragrance, nothing added, it’s just a pad, and that’s what I was looking for. They have a lot of different products to treat different things, I don’t remember seeing a lot in Target when I went but that could honestly just be that they didn’t have a lot in stock. I bought the panty liners, long and regular sized pads. One thing I did notice were that the regular and pantyliner sticky-stuff was not sticky enough, by the time I put the pad on and pulled up the undies, it had already moved. It was annoying especially when in a hurry to get myself cleaned up. The long pads folded in on themselves before I pulled them for their package. This left a little ‘bump’ in the pads that I felt self-conscious about. I made sure to test to make sure it wasn’t me by pulling it out before lifting the sticky from it’s holder. For Cora, you can purchase their products online and through subscription.
This is also a tip on shortening periods and cramps that I’ve been told and have used now for about 3 years. Raspberry leaf tea. It is a very bitter tea but you get used to it. I normally drink a few cups with the onset of my period and it has helped me tremendously.
Feminine products are a part of everyones life, no matter the gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, any of that. Women are becoming more and more aware of what we put in and around our bodies. We don’t want things laced with random chemicals that may leave us with horrible complications and things that we cannot fix. Is organic feminine products affordable? No, compared to brands like StayFree, Kotex, and Always, they are not always the cheaper option especially with people who don’t have a lot of money. The extra money usually goes to real necessities and a preference for pads/tampons probably isn’t it.
