Diva Cup / Instead Cup - tampon / pad alternative

Recommended Posts


Ha ha...yes, it would easier on the wallet.  But I mean, Dalton McGuinty did us a huge favour and didn't apply HST to our feminine hygiene projects...lmao :)

 

Hmm...might look into it again.  Thanks!

I bought Instead a couple of years ago and gave it a shot then. I didn't like it at all. After reading this thread I may give it another go. It works OK for periods that are quite light?

This is honestly the best thing I've ever done!!!! I bought mine 5 years ago and haven't looked back. It's great for light periods, heavy periods, helped with cramps, and you don't have to mess with it more than twice a day! I get up in the morning and wash it, then wash it before bed...it really doesn't get any easier than that. Plus I feel so much better that I'm not creating any waste with all the packaging that pads and tampons come in....so environmentally friendly!!!!

What's not to trust!? Tampons are brutal and pads are worse lol. http://lunapads.com/diva-cup.html check out the website. I bought mine years ago and would NEVER go back. There are hundreds of reviews on the divacup website. Seriously the best thing I have ever done :)

The instead is somewhat different than the Diva

 

I use a different brand of cup, but it's by far the best thing I've ever done.

Do it! Use the promo code LUNANEWS when you buy it online from http://lunapads.com/diva-cup.html for $5 off! Or they now sell them at London Drugs and basically any health store :) I did it as an 'experiment' for a paper I was writing and was like, HOW have I not heard of this?! Changed my life.
