I recently had the opportunity to try and review Lazy Monk Menstrual Cups and let me tell you, I was super excited to try because I’ve been looking for a good alternative to pads and tampons. I personally have a super heavy flow so it gets real messy once a month. I’m not currently on birth control and my doctor pretty much told me too bad, so sad when I asked for alternatives to help regulate it, so each month I just deal with the PMS, cramps, bloating, fatigue and the worst – leakage.

My cycles get so heavy that I often have to double up and wear a tampon and pad, so when I saw Lazy Monk came with two cup sizes – one for light days and one for heavy days, I was grateful.

My first day, I used the smaller, light day cup. I didn’t experience any leakage! Unfortunately, my second and third day I used the bigger cup in addition to a pad to soak up access leakage. I could have potentially gotten away without having leakage on day three had I been able to empty my cup after 3-4 hours. However, life happens and you can’t always get to a safe haven aka your own bathroom.

Which leads me to my next point. These menstrual cups are made from natural materials and FDA approved so I had no qualms about literally putting it inside me. However, the first insertion is a bit awkward. But you definitely get used to it. I’m kind of a pro now! Pro tip: fold the cup as small as you can and squat for seamless insertion. Another tip, insert and remove in the shower!

The cup collects as much blood as possible but if you think you won’t get any on you during removal, think again. Hence, my best advice is to remove it while you’re in the shower.

Overall, I’d recommend Lazy Monk Menstrual cups. While you can often times feel a tampon, the Lazy Monk cup feels invisible. I didn’t experience any discomfort or negative reaction. The only downside is that I’m basically the Hoover Dam and require a little extra help to soak it all up. So to all my fab friends with a similar heavy flow, be sure to keep pads in rotation.

About Beauty: Facial Cleansers

Facial cleansers. They’re just as important as body wash, because face it (ha! was that a pun?), a clean, fresh face is the first thing you see! But what is the best facial cleanser you can use?

Well, thanks to reviews.com, I have a little bit of inside information on that. Reviews.com did a little research by talking to dermatologists and aestheticians and concluded that the best facial cleanser is Cellex-C Betaplex Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

So how did reviews.com figure that this is the best face wash out there? They talked to several skincare experts and dug deep into a list of ingredients. Cellex-C stood out the most because of its natural ingredients. And they skipped over any cleanser meant to treat specific skin conditions like acne or oily skin. Why? Because your face needs oil. And everyone’s got some oil on their face — in fact, there’s a critical film on your skin called the acid mantle that helps produce oil.

Cellex-C Betaplex Gentle Foaming Cleanser is fairly priced and made of ingredients we can all pronounce, like Sunflower Seed Oil;Willow Bark Extract;Sassafrass Extract;Chamomile Extract;Vitamin E. Skyn ICELAND Pure Cloud Cleanser and CeraVe Hydrating Cleaner  made it to the top of the list, too coming in second and third place for best face wash.
