In this blog, we’ll be giving you the lowdown on 4 period essentials you can get your hands on at Superdrug.
What are your period essentials? Top of the list is no doubt your period care products. Good news, our organic and sustainable period care is now available in Superdrug Online!
To celebrate our new period powerful launch, we decided to see what else you can find online at Superdrug to take power over your period. Here are your top 4 finds (which are of course all cruelty-free AND suitable for vegans):
Something for breakouts:
Ah breakouts…thanks to hormonal changes, they always seem to pop up more frequently on the lead up to our periods. Sebum is produced from our sebaceous glands. When we produce too much sebum it results in spots. Nip+Fab’s ‘Skin Fix Blemish Treatment’ is a ‘period skin’ saviour! It helps reduce and improve the appearance of blemishes through ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and Witch Hazel.
Something for menstrual cramps:
Did you know that magnesium is effective for soothing menstrual cramps because it relaxes your uterine muscles? Applying a small amount of BetterYou’s ‘Magnesium Gel’ directly to your lower abdomen can help combat menstrual cramps. If you suffer from back pain, you can apply some to your lower back too. BetterYou are committed to using 100% recycled or carbon negative packaging. It is also 100% recyclable.
Something for hormonal balance:
Does your period affect your mood, energy levels and general wellbeing? These symptoms are often a result of a hormonal imbalance. Pukka’s ‘Womenkind Premenstrual Capsules’ have been created to naturally aid hormonal balance using the finest organic herbs. Remember, always consult a GP or medical professional if you’re thinking of including supplements in your diet.
Period care products:
As we might have mentioned above TOTM tampons, pads, liners AND menstrual cups are now available in Superdrug Online. Mainstream products are conventionally made with a mix of plastic, conventional cotton, rayon, fragrance and chlorine bleach. Our period care is made with GOTS certified organic cotton. We also use cardboard applicators and eco-alternatives for product wrappers including paper or cornstarch.
