Our customer Sian shares her experience switching to TOTM organic cotton period care. Read her switch story below #SwitchStories
There is a significant improvement
What is your first name?
Why did you choose to switch to TOTM products?
I’m constantly looking for ways to change up what I buy to ensure there’s minimal damage to the world we live in and also found the leading brand products were starting to irritate my skin. The TOTM products were free of all those nasty chemicals (bleach etc) that you find in some brands in the supermarket, they’re biodegradable and free from any plastic, which is a win-win situation for everyone! I was so happy that I could subscribe to the TOTM products too, no more emergency trips to the pharmacy!
Had you used organic cotton period care products before using TOTM?
I had tried a different brand of organic period care products before but they weren’t so easily available (no subscription, and not in shops, so bought them online with long delivery times) they were expensive and were also really bulky.
When using conventional period care products (non-organic) did you experience any discomfort or irritation?
Yes I did!
What TOTM products did you use/have you trialled?
Have you noticed any improvements since switching to organic cotton?
There is a significant improvement! I have to wear some sort of protection for anything up to 10 days at a time and so the irritation that I was facing before was horrible, even in a heatwave, the TOTM products held their own and no irritation!
Overall, did you find this was a negative or positive experience using the organic products? (Please consider performance, comfort etc)
Positive all round I’d say!
Any additional feedback?
The only comment I would have is to make the sticky parts of the pads, a bit more sticky as my pads tend to move around a bit and also to make the night pads a bit longer (or another option for longer pads) I’ve only had 1 or 2 problems with leaking at night but to have a longer pad would give me the confidence that it won’t leak.
How likely are you to continue using TOTM products?
