Lunette Menstrual Cup Review - Do They Really Work?

Environmental sustainability is becoming a phrase we are hearing more and more in our everyday lives. With the recent push for consumers to be more environmentally conscious we are seeing a wave of old everyday items being reinvented to help minimise waste and consumption. 

A company leading the way in reusable feminine hygiene products is Lunette
Founded in Finland by Heli Kurjanen, Lunette was created for the safety, ease and comfort of all women. With a message of female liberation, Lunette has found international success. 

Many women across the globe do not have access to feminine hygiene products.
Lunette has teamed up with many charities to help give women a voice and access to cups.
Read about how Lunette are giving back here:

So let's talk about the benefits of making the switch to menstrual cups.

Environmentally Friendly - Making the switch will benefit the planet. No plastic, no cotton, no waste!
Savings - Menstrual cups are reusable so the more you use them the more money you save. The average women spends about $200 a year on feminine hygiene products. One menstrual cup will last you years. Think of all that money you will save!
Non-Irritating - they do not cause dryness or irritation. Cups are made from medical grade silicone so are safer to use than rayon or bleached cotton tampons (yes you read that correctly...BLEACHED!) Who wants to be putting something that has been bleached into the most absorbent part of your body? NOT ME! 

Lunette menstrual cups come in 2 sizes. The silicone is super flexible and easy to fold. This makes them easy and comfortable to use. The cup is held in position by a seal that is formed when inserted. There is a stem at the bottom that can be used for removal or trimmed for more comfort. Inserting and removing is a little more invasive than standard feminine hygiene products however with practise you will see that they are easy to use. The environmental benefits alone are enough to make the switch if you ask me. 

Where can you purchase Lunette?

Lunette Menstrual Cups can be purchased from Boots in the UAE. 

*The Lunette Cup was gifted to me by Tish Tash Pr Dubai

Thyroid Surgery Regrets?

Making the decision to have thyroid surgery can feel very over whelming. Post surgical hypothyroidism can come with a whole new world of health problems such as calcium deficiencies, weight gain, fatigue and brain fog.

I always get asked if I regret having my thyroid removed. In this week vlog I answer my most frequently asked thyroid questions including if I regret having the life changing surgery.

Life without a thyroid can be a roller coaster. I have been feeling so healing and strong for months and then out of nowhere all my symptoms came back. Fatigue, tremors, migraines, muscle tightness, aches and pains, anxiety...it was a lot to manage.

In this video I talk about the ups and downs of life without a thyroid.

DIY Natural Deodorant - 3 Ingredient Recipe

I am so conscious of what I put on my body. There are so many harmful chemicals in everyday products that can be purchased at the store. After being diagnosed with a thyroid disorder I decided to take matters into my own hands and eliminate as many toxins from my home as possible. 

Everything we put on our skin is absorbed into our blood stream. The chemicals used in many beauty products have been linked to diseases and health conditions. 

I love making my own beauty products as it gives me the control over what I am putting on my body.
This easy DIY natural deodorant recipe works a charm. It's fun to make, lasts all day and smells great.

I hope you have fun creating your own blend.
