Despite their ease and discreetness, tampons still aren’t the best solution for that time of the month. Each time I go to the store to stock up, I am always baffled by my choices. Still! “Do I want a multi-pack? How many of each size do I have left over from last month? Maybe I should just get all one size this time.” Inevitably, my calculations are almost always off, which sends me in a frantic return to made an additional purchase. It’s endlessly tiresome, but that’s all behind me now. I have discovered Softcup.
Finally! Something that is easy and effective and requires less attention and worry than the usual lady products. Softcup is just what it sounds like. And better. It’s literally a soft cup that you insert and wear for up to twelve hours, then just pull and pour out. And you can’t even feel it! The blood accumulates rather than gets absorbed, which means there is zero risk of toxic shock syndrome, nor that uncomfortable feeling of removing a tampon that wasn’t fully saturated. Maybe that’s TMI, but any of us who have worn tampons surely know that feeling, and it’s not a pleasant one.
Softcup has totally changed the way I handle my cycle. I can go to dance class and lose myself in the movement, not worry about leaks. I go to sleep and don’t wake up in a panic about the possible state of my sheets. Plus, you can wear it and have mess-free sex! (If you want to. Or you can keep that tidbit to yourself.)
Available in both reusable and disposable versions, Softcup is safe for our bodies: it contains no latex, silicone, phthalates, BPA, PVC or dioxins. It’s discreet, convenient, and so simple to use. And the best part? For every box of Sofctup sold, they will donate a reusable cup to a woman or girl in Africa. How cool is that? So I challenge you, ladies. Give Softcup a go over tampons and pads. I bet you won’t go back. I didn’t.Disclaimer: I received product and compensation for this review, but the comments and opinions expressed within are solely my own.
