Ladies. It’s about to get real in this post, so unless you don’t want to be talking about “ladies things”…well, I mean…if you read the title and you’re here, you totes want to read about this kinda thang. And, although it surprises me to say this, I’m pretty stoked to talk about it too.
Every girl needs her tribe. Whether it’s her lady boss tribe, her mama village, her cat lady club. We all need someone in our corner to be there for us when we need to vent, collaborate, share, dream, eat cookies and watch bad TV…and, commiserate over cramps and flow.
That’s why I’m loving (and I mean, LOVING so much I’m yelling it) the brand I’m about to brag about for the next few paragraphs. Well, it’s probably going to be longer than that, because I totally ramble and 97 percent of my sentences run on and on and on…

THE ORGANIC TAMPONS + STUFF
The fabulous women over at Tampon tribe (hey girls!) recently sent me over the a bunch of tampons and stuff to try (they also happened to be one of the 25 fabulous sponsors of this month’s huge giveaway (now over)– holla!).
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I received a package in the mail filled with all the stuff I needed to tame the beast (if you know what I’m sayin’) and, it literally arrived at the perfect time. Like, I got to start testing that very day.
Here’s how it works: Since every women is different, you get to choose how you want to receive the goods each month. Heavy flow? Light flow? Period last for 1000 days straight and never, ever ends? They gotcha gurl.
You can choose to just get Tampons (You’ll get 16 organic cotton tampons) or pads (you’ll get 10 pads) or panty liners (you’ll get 24 panty liners). Or, you can choose the Mash Up because your period is not the boss of you and you’re going to be making all the decisions. Riiiight?
I got to try a little bit of everything so I could share the deets with Y-O-U, and I’m totally sold. My little package included this adorable jute bag that holds a bunch of tampons or pads or liners or whatever you choose because who’s the boss? You are. Your uterus is merely along for the ride (just kidding, she’s totally in charge…but for purposes of this post let’s pretend she’s at your beck and call).
I’m not a huge fan of plastic in general (I mean, I love our oceans and wildlife), but I do have to say that there is something nice about a plastic applicator vs. a cardboard one. I had tried cardboard in the past (way back when) and hated it. So, I was interested to see how this one netted out. And? Totally perfect. No issues, it didn’t squish or fall apart on its journey to you-know-where and I loved the fact that it was totally safe for my body and the earth.
The cotton part of the tampon (I mean, does that have its own name?) was great too. I didn’t notice any real difference from the name brand, not so nice for the earth tampons I had been using.
AND, again – I felt really good about the fact that it was inside my body and not full of nasty stuff that didn’t belong there.
I also received a couple of different size pads (for day and night), as well as a couple of liners (along with a tiny little travel Jute bag to pop in my purse…awe).
I’m not really a pad gal, although there have been times when my period comes in like a raging bitch and I’ve wished I had one of those in the cupboard. So, although I didn’t use try it this time around, I’m sure they’re great if they are anything like the liners – which I do use.
There’s nothing grosser than not having a panty liner on those days when you really, really need one. So, I was super stoked to try these out. I had previously used name brand version and switched to a generic version because they were cheap and I wanted to see how they were. I hated them. They barely stuck and barely absorbed even the tiniest amount.
These, on the other hand, worked great! I was a bit nervous because they didn’t seem very sticky, but I had no issues and would use them again.
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST?
If you choose the tampons only (regular, super, super plus or combo), pads only (day or night) or liners only packs you’re looking at $8 bucks per month (free shipping). The final cost of the Mash-up depends upon what you pick, plus the free shipping of course.
And, don’t think this is weird, but you can order gift cards and gift subscriptions for your besties! I mean, why wouldn’t you? Whenever I find an awesome product I love, I share it with my girls. And, I’d do the same with these fabulous gifts for her lady regions!
DO I HAVE A NEW TRIBE?
You know it sista. All, in all, my experience with Tampon Tribe was fabulous! And, it made having to deal with cranky and crampy all the better. I have a couple of more months under my belt and will let you know if anything changes – but as for now, I’m pretty sold and planning on switching all my monthly products to my new tribe.
Let me know if you have tried these fabulous, non-toxic organic products for your lady bits!
