So, listen up girls, I'm going to talk to you about periods. More specifically what you use during your period. Naturally we reach for the more well known brands, because, well, they're more well known, their adverts are all over our screens, in our magazines, on side bars of the blogs we read. Basically everywhere. Now while these products serve a purpose and do that very well, I have recently been questioning whether these are indeed the right ones for my, well, vagina! Sorry, there really isn't any other way to say it!
Our most trusted sanitary products can have perfumes in which can and do irritate our sensitive areas, leading to itching and potential rashes which can have their own consequences! Not what we need when we're trying to just get through the week without dying/punching the next person who asks us if we're feeling ok/eating our own bodyweight in chocolate....!
So today, I'm going to talk to you about natural sanitary products. These natural, cotton based, pesticide and perfume free tampons and sanitary towels provide the same level of protection and comfort as you'd expect from your usual brand and all without any irritation!
During my last period I actually reached for one of my Veeda sanitary towels and I have to say I am very impressed! Now I don't usually use towels, I'm more of a tampon girl, but all in the name of research I grabbed a pad and put it to work! I am lucky in that I have a light flow and do not suffer at all from PMS or cramps! *Please don't hate me* Are you still here?? Ok cool, I'll continue.....
