*Ladies Only* Peepods Review

Okay ladies, this review is a tad bit more personal than my usual post, but I just discovered a fabulous product that I know many of you would love, and I just had to share it with you all.

In general, I consider myself a very savvy shopper, and I think that fact that I am also a reviewer only increases my desire to use the very best products. One thing I always prefer when I have the option is reusable versions of products, rather than disposable ones.

Not only do reusable products save you money in the long run(even if they are an investment in the beginning), but they also tend to save space in your home. Even more importantly, when you reuse a product instead of constantly throwing away disposable versions, that is much better for our planet. We only get one, and it certainly is not getting any better. I may only be one woman, but anything I can do to reduce the impact is a whole lot better than adding to the damage.

I get really excited when I discover a replacement for a product that I use all the time, especially when it ends up being even better than what I had been used to. That is definitely the case with Peepods. These things are awesome.
Peepods are reusable cloth period(postpartum and incontinence) pads. Although this is a new concept to me, apparently there are many other options for reusable period pads, but Peepods are so much more. The Peepods slogan is "Dress With Dignity" and that could not be more fitting.

While I love to do my part for the environment, I am not a Green machine my any means. I am not willing to sacrifice quality or performance. I love that Peepods are not only functional, but actually beautiful. Even with their sensitive nature, I am in no way ashamed to use these.

I got the Deluxe Set of 7 Period Pads. I chose espresso, but these are also available in Cranberry. The set comes with 3 panty liners, 2 daytime pads and 2 overnight pads plus a Planet Wise wet/travel bag.
The pads all have beautifully designed wings that snap securely around underwear to keep them in place and fully protect you.
The panty liners even fold up and snap into a little bundle, making them super cute and compact for travel.
Not only are they much more discrete to carry in your purse when you know you need them, they are elegant enough to keep one with you all the time, just in case. Unless someone already knew or was to open it up, you could never even tell what this is. It looks like it could be a little coin purse or cosmetic pouch.

Overall these are more discrete and compact as well. I know that my hubby hates seeing my girly products i the bathroom. These all fit perfectly into the travel case and they are out of sight and out of mind for hubby, which is great.

And since they do not have wrappers or need to be disposed of, hubby no longer needs to worry about seeing them in the waste basket either, which he really loves.

Everything I mentioned already is great, but it all means nothing if they do not perform well. No worries though, these are amazing. I was very surprised not only how comfortable they are, but by how absorbent. That was my biggest concern, I was worried they would be just pieces of fabric that are easily penetrated, but that was definitely not the case. In fact, I have had many issues with disposable versions, and I have not had any issues whatsoever with these.

Now I will admit I still do use tampons as well, as I always have in addition to pads, but I use them less now(not at all for lighter days. I have always used liners with the tampons, but these Peepods liners are so much more comfortable. They never bunch up or anything. I cannot say how many miners I wasted that were spotless but bunched and had to be thrown out. Never again.

The overnight pads are amazing as well. I have never been able to wear only a pad to bed(except on a very light night), but these kept me covered, it was wonderful.

Now I never have to worry about running out of protection. I have enough to wash a few in a pinch if I need to, and I always have them on hand at a moments notice. The peace of mind in that alone is priceless. I am so glad I found Peepods. I cannot imagine going back to my old routine. This is so much better in every single aspect.

If you are looking for a better value, more convenient, more comfortable, more dignified, less wasteful, space saving solution to take care of Mother Nature(or incontinence), then you have to try Peepods.
