Hey ladies (and gentlemen, if you wish to stick around), today I’m going to talk about periods… yay!
I talk a lot about eating healthy, using natural beauty products and generally avoiding putting junk in your body.
So I figured, if we care so much about food and makeup, we should probably pay more attention to the junk we’re putting elsewhere.
Most tampon and pad brands that you see at the store are full of synthetics, dyes, and even perfumes (whyyyy?!). The worst part is that none of these brands disclose their ingredients, so we are left totally in the dark about the chemicals we end up putting inside our bodies month after month.
Which brings me to LOLA, a company started by women who were fed up with the lack of transparency and options in the feminine products market, and became the change they wanted to see.
I have reviewed LOLA in the past, when I first tried their all-natural tampons. You can read that full review here.
Long story short, I was pretty amazed with them because:
- LOLA tampons are made with 100% organic cotton. Nothing else. Nada.
- I could order them online and they would always be here in time so I never have that “oh shit” moment
- I could customize every single box to include however many “supers,” “regulars” and “lights” that I wanted
Sounds pretty good, right?
Well since then, LOLA has expanded their product line and now includes pads and liners as well! After switching to the all-natural tampons, I have been dying to get my hands on equally safe liners, and now I finally can.
Benefits of LOLA pads and liners
Just like the tampons, LOLA’s pads and liners are made with 100% organic cotton and contain no other ingredients.
Customized for YOU
The pads can be customized: pick as many night/day pads as you’ll need in each box you order. They are winged, thin, extremely absorbent, and come with a plant-based waterproof backing that gives me the peace of mind I need on those days.
The liners are super thin but also absorbent and have that same waterproof backing to keep things secure.
Like I mentioned in my previous review, using all natural and safe feminine care products is not just for your peace of mind. There is a noticeable, physical difference. Irritation, itchiness, and discomfort are all results of synthetic fibers and chemicals that your hoo-ha wants nothing to do with.
With LOLA, none of that is any longer an issue. These products are so comfortable, you almost forget that they’re there.
Despite all their benefits, LOLA products are not super expensive, and are comparable to some drugstore brands you might already be paying for. They go for around $8-$9 per box, and each box usually lasts through more than one cycle. Shipping is free!
Lastly, I love the way these pads and liners are packaged. I’ve always loved LOLA’s minimalist and subtly luxurious package design that they used for the tampons, and I wasn’t disappointed with the design for their new line!
The products are elegantly wrapped in non-crinkly packaging, come color coded in an white box, and of course, feature my beloved “this too shall pass” quote on the bottom of the lid. Seeing it always makes me smile 🙂
Try LOLA and tell me what you think
So if you’ve been thinking of switching to a more natural option for your lady bits, I would definitely recommend giving LOLA a try.
If you’re worried about committing to a subscription, don’t be! LOLA allows you to cancel at any time, skip any month and pick a schedule that fits you. Personally, I don’t go through a whole box every month, so I either do the bimonthly schedule or skip orders until I need one. They never charge you for months when you skip the box.
