I’ve posted about the Intimate Feminine Washes not a long time ago (here), and following up, here is a feature on the menstrual cup.
My girlfriends and I discussed it for a few times in details and I wanted to try one for a while so when Intimina contacted me I was more than happy to trial their Lily Cup (Compact).
This all reminded me of my early teenage years when I was carefully reading the tampon instructions! Lily Cup comes with a helpful booklet with all the information you can possibly need to know.
The one I have is size A which is for women who did not give birth or have given birth by cesarean.
It is also, as I’ve mentioned, a compact cup which is created for low and medium flows. Intimina promise up to 12 hours of non-stop protection. And you can easily carry it with you in the case it comes with, very convenient.
The cup is made out of 100% medical grade silicone. And it is easy to use. There are detailed illustrations and tips on the website. And I will just say, without getting into too many details, that it is easy to insert and remove. I did not have any problems, and I’ve used it for a few months before writing this feature.
And, to be honest, I personally did not find it gross to get it out and clean it. Such things do not bother me, while I do understand that maybe not everyone would feel comfortable doing it. A few of my girlfriends admitted that could never try a cup.
I did not have any leaking problems, but I do not get a heavy period. I am sure everyone will be fine if they remove it on time, just like you would with a tampon. I am sure you know your body.
I think this cup would work great for women who want to:
- Save money. The price is £24.95 so you end up saving since you won’t have to buy pads and tampons.
- Care for the environment, and want to make eco-friendly choices.
- Simply want to try something new. And why not?
I also wanted to mention that the brand just recently launched the Ziggy cup which can be used during sex. And I personally think it is great that women have a choice these days.
And lastly, I wanted to share about the new Cult Beauty campaign. The #Vulvalution.
I was browsing the website for about an hour yesterday reading about the products and the interviews. And while I personally would not be spraying myself with an Intimate Coconut Spray, there are a few things that I would love to try. You know, just why not? It is not that you have to use a cream or serum on your intimate areas but it’s great that you can/have what to choose from should you wish to do so, and I am all up for that.
