The Keeper

good concept, doesn't work for me

A review on: The Keeper
betty

Pros: reusable, can return product w/in 3 months

Cons: mine leaked, learning curve

Okay, I love the concept of a cup, the reusability, the money savings, the portability. The Keeper was conveniently available in one of my local stores, so I gave it a good try. It was very awkward to use at first (I'm sure tampons were too), and I was a little timid about insertion and removal. I finally got comfortable with insertion and removal, and I really did forget that I was wearing...

Lunette Menstrual Cup Blue Selene -Model 2

Lunette Menstrual Cup Blue Selene -Model 2

“ I recently tried reusable menstrual cups and I'm in love with them. There's no way I'd go back to tampons or pads. For the complete newbie, a menstrual cup is a silicone (in this case) cup, that fits inside a woman's anatomy to collect monthly fluid, rather than absorb it. The cup is emptied into the toilet, rinsed, and reinserted as needed throughout one's cycle. According to the...” --betty

The Diva Cup

The Diva Cup

“ This is really the best  feminine hygiene product out there along with cloth pads and chlorine free tampons. Look people, who use tampons and pads most likely have no clue about the harsh chemicals found in them used for the bleaching process. I turned to the diva cup right away, and yes without being grossed out about it too. It amazed me and I bought it in a heartbeat. Why? Well...” --Angela Heckman

Moon Bees Quick-Dry Cloth Menstrual Pads

Moon Bees Quick-Dry Cloth Menstrual Pads

“Moon Bees pads are great. I love that they are all natural fabrics, and I don't have to worry about synthetics and the sensitivities I have to them. I have to change them a little more often on my heavy days, but I'm okay with that and would take them over a plastic-lined pad any day! ” --MaggieMae

The Keeper

The Keeper

“I bought this back in the last 90s.  It changed my life.  My periods became shorter and less painful (and no nausea, dizziness, fevers, etc. like were normal -and still are- if I use regular tampons or pads)... basically, for the first time in my life I had a period where I *might* pop a couple ibuprofen for a harder day of cramps and that's it.  It was wonderful. It does take a little learning...” --RumpusParable

Mimi's Dreams All in One Cloth Pads

Mimi's Dreams All in One Cloth Pads

“ I love my Mimi's Dreams pads. I've even given them away as birthday presents to friends and family. I used them solely postpartum with my second child, and never had any leaking problems. They're the best, and I recommend them to everyone. I've had them for 4 years now, and they're still holding up strong.       ” --NicoleM

Natracare Organic 100% Cotton Tampons

Natracare Organic 100% Cotton Tampons

“When I became pregnant, I decided I wanted to change my lifestyle around and try to live greener and raise my daughter greener. After I gave birth, I began to use these and they are wonderful alternative to those who want to live green but are not ready to start using a Divacup. I will never go back to Tampax Pearl; I don't know what I was thinking using them, what a waste. I use the...” --dannie8289

Sea Pearls Sea Sponge Tampons

Sea Pearls Sea Sponge Tampons

“One month ago, I had Mirena (IUD) installed and have experienced uncontrollable bleeding inside and outside of my normal menstrual cycle.  I teach college a few days a week and have to walk long distances to teach class.   Each time I walk long distances, I bleed immensely (beyond tampons and pads).  After research, I excercised the option of sea sponges.  From what I read, sea sponges were a...” --professormax

Party In My Pants Cloth Pads

Party In My Pants Cloth Pads

“   I had heard that switching to reusables would change the way I felt about my period and I was skeptical. I mean really can a product really make that much of a difference? Yes it can!! I found PIMPs by accident and am so happy I did. Luci and Lydia have a great product and exceptional customer service. I no longer dread my period and I am so happy to spread the joy.     PIMPs are easy to...” --

Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Ultra Thin Pads With Wings

Seventh Generation Chlorine-Free Ultra Thin Pads With Wings

“The Seventh Generation pads are about as exciting as any other menstrual product.  And by that, I mean they are not exciting.  They're fine.  They're not bad.  They work.  (insert shoulder shrug here.)  As a straight pad, they're OK.  More or less like the basic Always with Wings I used to use before I went for the chlorine-free guys.  They're maybe not quite as absorbant but I haven't exactly...” --vs23

Cleanse 'n Carry

Cleanse 'n Carry

“I'm a fan of bidets, owning a BioBidet at home.  They're more hygienic, eco friendly, and just do a better job than toilet paper.  So conceptually I like the Cleanse 'n Carry because it allows me to take a bidet anywhere I go. The bottle is a good size.  I find that filling it up provides just the right amount of water to get the job done.  However, the bottle is a little on the large side in...” --dana1981
