Last week I have done a 7 Days of Self Love Challenge in which I have challenged my community, THAT’S YOU, to join and apprecite the small and the so called superficial things in life. We covered makeup, hair care, skincare, sensorial experiences taking you on a trip down the memory lane and also, that time of the month: the menstrual cycle.
Everything started when I first had contact with the Enroush products. They are a Swiss brand, it’s mission being to empower women, promote self-love and self-care, changing the misconceptions related to periods.
At the age of 21 and after switching 2 European countries I think I can confidently say that I have tried many different tampons and tampon brands throughout the years.
I had my first period at 12, in the 4th grade and I remember not going to school for the first 2 days because I felt ashamed. I was one of the first girls in my class to have it and this was such a tabu subject at school 10 years ago that you always felt uncomfortable talking about it with your friends and teachers.
These days things don’t seem to have changed, at least on social media, many influencers are not talking about periods and many girls are still feeling uncomfortable to hear about it.
The ads you see on tampons are censoring as much as possible using a blue liquid that has nothing to do with the real deal and advertising these stark white tampons. Like having your period isn’t a messy situation. Let me tell you the truth: it is a messy situation! Yes, we sometimes stain our clothes in public, yes sometimes we experience pain and we don’t want to get out of bed and yes sometimes we crave chocolate like crazy, we feel exhausted sometimes also, but that’s never in those pretty stark white ads.
Why Enroush? Well, doing some research in the pat few months I have found that the usual tampons that we buy at our local stores are actually containing toxic substances that on the long term they can create health issues. Depending on the country that you live in, some of these substances are banned and some are still used in personal care products such as tampons, pads or baby diapers. I am not an expert on this subject, but I highly recommend you to do some research for yourself on this topic.
However, Enroush products are made out of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which means none of those toxic ingredients end up in your tampons!
“Did you know that every year 45 billion synthetic tampons or sanitary pads (which take hundreds of years to decompose) are disposed of, ending up in our landfills and in our oceans?”
Yes that’s right! Besides being a health threat, that I have mentioned before, the usual synthetic tampons that we buy are a threat to the environment also. These days speaking about environmental-friendly products it seem to have become more so of a trend. But are we taking action?
However, the threat is real. We are a consumerist society, that is blinded by the beauty of having more stuff than it needs. By using organic cotton tampons you are spearing our landfills and oceans of 240 synthetic tampons yearly, which is the average number of tampons a women uses in 1 year.
Another thing that this brand does and it’s super helpful is their monthly subscription. Very convenient. You can choose the perfect mix of tampons and pads for you, depending on the level of absorption that you need. Then you choose the delivery frequency: every 4 weeks or every 8 weeks. If you just one to try these before committing to a subscription you can choose a one time purchase.
My favourite aspects about these tampons are for sure the comfort, the fact that they are 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, therefore bio-degradable and last but not the least, their packaging!
Their packaging gives me good vibes and I agree on the fact that packaging is not the most important feature of a product but it sure adds character to it and it makes me fall in love with it even more. The attention to details it’s one of their many priorities.
And of course I have a special discount code for you! Me and the Enroush team we have prepared for you a 10% off discount code that you can use on their website for your order. This way you have absolutely no reason not give these products a try!
