Your period is still set on rising all hell. And no, we do not get to skip menstruation all of 2020, just because the world is in chaos. That means, you're still going to be 'checking Into the Red Roof Inn,' COVID-19 pandemic -happening or not, once a month.
And- without a gym to go to, or a busy day at work to keep your mind occupied, Aunt Flo's antics are such more noticeable. The swollen breasts, insatiable lower back burning, the 'it feels like a sumo wrestler is holding my ovaries in place while Rocky Balboa and Credence take a few practice swings..."
...its like we said: all so much more noticeable especially, when you have sooo much more time to notice it. So we thought we'd introduce some brands for the 'quarantined edition' of your period'.
Callaly + The Tampliner
It connects to the tampon at one end and the mini-liner at the other, and it stays inside your body the entire time you’re wearing a tampliner. It keeps your finger clean as you insert the tampon and also neatly wraps the used tampon as you remove it. Unlike an ordinary applicator, it’s mess-free! -Callaly.com
DAYE + Tampon Quality 'THE DAYE GOLD STANDARD'
News flash, tampon companies don't need to share with you what chemicals their products have been exposed too. Daye, has chosen full transparency though, and that's why we like them. As a transparent company ourselves, we know how important it is consumers get the right information.
A common issue with tampons is fibre loss, where the tampon sheds inside your vaginal canal and leaves fibers behind. These then become the perfect breeding ground for thrush and BV-causing bacteria.- DAYE
DAYE CBD tampons, include 150mg of full spectrum CBD (minus the THC), with 30% high potency concentrate.
CLEO, (a period company that doesn't sell pads or tampons.)
All of their products are available to buy as you please, we're a big fan of the portable heating pack, but you can buy them bundled. The 'Pampered works bundle,' includes 5x portable discreet heating packs, an under the eye mask, and a hydrating facemask. ---Yaas, pamper yourself honey. The period performance bundle is where all the action is though:
An arsenal of health and wellness solutions to help alleviate; cramps, head and back pain, bloating, fatigue, hormonal acne and irritability — for complete relief with the luxury of built-in pampering.
...including things like, hormone balancing vitamins. The lovely portable *sigh* heating packs *double sigh*. Acne patches, energy drink mix packets, and much more.
* Due to our hospitals being pushed to new limits, it's better to start taking preventive measures to your personal care. Rather than reacting to things as they arise. Starting not only with whole nutrition like your BCRX kit, but also taking better care of your vaginal health. It's worthwhile preventative, so you don't end up with an uncomfortable UTI or yeast infection; and you're not able to see care provider as soon as you'd like.
Well that's a wrap for our 3 BRANDS THINKING ABOUT YOUR PMS SANITY + COMFORT. If you liked what you read, drop a line below and we'll more than happy to dish about more vaginal health tricks, brands, and info.
