Softcup Review and Giveaway

I'm going to start this review of with a disclaimer..... I'm going to be talking about our "friend" that visits every month. I know, this is a taboo subject especially on a blog, but come on ladies.... it happens to all of us, and I've got a new alternative to dealing with it.

Moms Meet  gave me a few boxes to test out with my moms group, and try for myself. Let me tell you, at first I was a little skeptical about trying out a cup that put in, instead of the traditional tampon or pad, but honestly it's really easy to place, and you can keep it in place for 12 hours. How great is that? You only have to worry about your period twice a day, instead of all day long. For me as a busy mom, that is awesome!!!

Here are some of the reasons why I decided to give it a try: 
  • Softcup is a greener, simpler alternative to tampons and pads that can be worn for up to 12 hours
  • A flexible cup that’s worn internally around your cervix, Softcup works by collecting rather than absorbing menstrual flow.Because of its special design, one size fits almost all women.
  • You won’t feel Softcup while you’re wearing it, and can enjoy any activity, including swimming, sports, sleeping and mess-free intercourse.
  • Softcup is not linked to Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and does not cause dryness or irritation. It’s hypo-allergenic and latex-free.

Another worry of mine was that this product would be too expensive for me to purchase, but a 14-pack box is only $8-$10. Ok, I know that sounds a little pricey, but remember ladies, you are only using 2 a day, so if your cycle lasts 5 days you are only using 10, instead of the multitude of tampons and pads that you would be using instead. Now that your interest is peaked, I'm sure you want to learn more about it. Head on over to their website or their facebook page, or you can even check them out on twitter

Now, here's the awesome part. Softcup is allowing me to giveaway 14-count boxes to 3 of my awesome readers in the United States.
