| L O L A :: A women’s hygiene post | 

Meet LOLA.

I first learned about these little guys on Facebook, of all places. But hey, FB does their job at advertising.

What stuck out to me was the fact that they DO NOT CONTAIN additives, synthetics, chemicals or dyes. I had to find out more so I followed the link and VOILA!

A little background on me and my time of the month…

I quit using regular old tampons {I was a Tampax Pearl girl for a long time} over 5 years ago when a friend told me about the Diva Cup. It’s great too however I’m a girl who likes to keep her options open BUT only for products that are safe and NOT harmful to my body.

A lot of people think that things we put in our bodies won’t affect us but long-term they do, in fact.  I truly believe a lot of the things we use in and on our bodies is what is causing so many people to die of various cancers and diseases, so many far too young to die.

I’m really passionate about hygiene products that are safe for women and sadly, many of them aren’t found at Wal-Mart or CVS. Which is super inconvenient for many women. I grew up in a tiny little town and Wally World is the only thing for 40 miles! For that reason alone, is why I LOVE me some LOLA! They literally ship straight to your door! No more embarrassing and inconvenient runs to your local store plus you can actually  mix-and-match which absorbencies you prefer based on your typical cycle.

Here’s how it works:

1. ASSORTMENT

Choose your preferred assortment of 18 light, regular, and super tampons

2. QUANTITY

Decide how many boxes you’d like

3. FREQUENCY

Select your shipment frequency — and cancel or modify your subscription anytime.

 

I know, I know, how much are they, right? A F F O R D A B L E  just $10 a box or two for $18. I just looked up the price for Tampax Pearl at Cheap McCheap Cheap Wally World and are they cheaper there, yes BUT you have to ask yourself the question, “Am I putting the best product available in my body?” What would you do for your daughter if you knew the long-term effects it could have on her? I know what I would do and again, the convenience factor is enough to say YES to! As I always say, pay now or pay later meaning I would rather take care of myself now and use products that are healthier then pay a doctor visit later when I’m having side effects from unhealthy products I used over the years.

Can you tell I’m passionate? Haha…

Check out my little photo shoot I had with the adorable box it’s sent in! You’ll seriously be so excited when it’s that time of the month!


Here are more deets taken straight from the LOLA website:

PRODUCT DETAILS

  • 100% hypoallergenic cotton
  • Compact, BPA-free plastic applicator
  • No chemicals, synthetics, or dyes
  • Superior leakage protection
  • Tampon is 100% biodegradable
  • Cotton is sourced in Europe

*SIDE NOTE: I have a lot of friends out there who are concerned about “organic” versus “natural.” LOLA is considered Natural and when asked about it on Facebook this was their reply, “Hi Ladies, LOLA tampons are not organic. However, our cotton is completely free of genetically modified organisms, and it goes through a non-bleach based cleansing process that uses oxygen instead of chlorine.”

Honestly, that’s good enough for me because the biggest plus is that it’s not soaked in bleach during the cleansing process. That really matters. This may be TMI but as I was beginning to write this post, I remembered back when I used Tampax Pearl’s and how it hurt when I would insert it. OUCH! I’m happy to say that with LOLA that didn’t happen at all! Just smooth and comfortable.

If you are in my neck of the woods, ask me for one, I share!

 

Much love, loves!
