Diva Cup review and GIVEAWAY

Diva Cup Review

 
 I guess everyone is wondering what a Diva cup is.  Well before I start my  review I want to warn you guys this is a girls product review.  I don't really think you would benefit from it and if you are anything like my hubby you most likely don't like hearing about these sort of things....


The Diva Cup is a safe healthy alternative to women menstrual hygiene products.  You read right this is to replaces our tampons ladies.  I know it may seem scary to switch up your routine so today I want to tell you why its important that you at least consider it.
First this product is reusable I know some of you may be saying ick I won't lie I myself thought that until I used it.  There is no ick factor and as long as you keep your product clean I promise you that it won't phase you at all!  I mean for those of you using tampons and pads right now did you know they are full of perfumes, chemicals and materials that can cause internal abrasions as well as irritate you!  If anything think that is icky!

Not to mention the amount of money we spend on menstrual cycle products!  The Diva cup solves that problem.  I did the math each month I spend about $15 on other products which at the end of the year adds up to $180!!  And times that by the fact I'm only 25 and will have to keep buying them for at LEAST another 20 years...  
I'm sure you can figure out that buying the Diva cup will save us girls a lot of money!!  Its the smart way to have your period.

So lets learn more about the Actually Diva Cup 
The Diva cup is made of the highest quality healthcare grade silicon.  It contains none of the following  latex, plastic, PVC, acrylic, acrylate, BPA, phthalate, elastomer, polyethylene, and free of colors and dyes.  And the fact it is re-useable and has no chemicals makes it eco friendly.
When inserted properly it prevents all leaks for up to 12 hours.  
The first time I used the product I had to get use to it.  It wasn't painful or uncomfortable it was just different then what I am use to.  After wearing it for a bit I realized that I would never again go back to regular products.  It felt more natural in my body and it gave me peace of mind.   It was easy to use and easy to clean.  You clean it with water and a mild soap and if needed can boil water to clean.  

The Diva cup comes with a cute pouch so its easy to store.
It can be worn by women of all ages and it comes in 2 different sizes.

  1. I learned that the average woman only flows approximately 1 to 1.4 ounces (30-40 ml) per cycle. It certainly seems like more!

  7. I have so been coveting a Diva Cup for a while now because they are safer for your body than traditional tampons--something I can definitely get behind! Also, how annoying does it get when you start your period and realize you're out of tampons and need to run out to the store?

  8. It learned that the DivaCup is cleared for marketing by the US FDA and the Australian TGA and the only reusable menstrual cup allowed to be sold in Canada by Health Canada.

  9. I learned that there is only odor when the menstrual fluid is exposed to air. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I had a total "Ohhhhhhhh!"-moment when I read this, haha. :)

  10. I learned about products not to use when cleaning your diva cup- such as hydrogen peroxide, which I probably would have considered using before!
