STRUGGLED WITH SKIN SENSITVITYI struggled with sensitivity from disposable pads for over 10 years and never knew what was causing my problems. I suffered two weeks of discomfort every month, and my skin allergies had become so terrible that my doctor recommended trying washable pads. I recently purchased one of your starter kits and after 2 months all my troubles are completely gone. Thank you for making such an easy to use product, and for making this transition a huge success! I will tell my friends about your company.
YOU GUYS ROCK!Why did I not start using these sooner? I'm not usually a poster of testimonials, but I love your pads so much, I needed to tell the world...or more specifically, anyone on the fence about switching from disposables. I finally decided to give reusable pads a shot after having a terrible allergic reaction to a disposable (*cough* Always *cough*) pantyliner.
I loved my little cloth pantyliner the minute I put it on. That was it? Where was the scratchiness, the itchiness, the bulky feel, the funny plastic smell, the bunching into a ball in my underwear? Wearing Lunapads is like wearing underwear, and that's it. Even the regular pads don't feel bulky. And I've had no leaking at all. Did I mention I love these things? I originally bought a sampler kit, but I'm sold, and I'm getting several more pads and a Diva Cup.
As has been mentioned in many comments I've seen on this page, I can tell the people who run the company clearly love and believe in what they do -- it comes through in the advice on the site and the quality of the craftsmanship of the products. In short, you guys rock! Thank you so much for this option!
FEELING MORE LIKE MYSELFI had a miscarriage in May. I normally have a pretty positive view about my period - I love how it reminds me of the changes in time, and the feeling of renewal I have. This, however, was certainly not a happy event, and seeing the physical reminders throughout the day was devastating.
Having my Lunapanties as something cozy and comforting against my skin was just a small thing I could do to ease what I was going through. I couldn't imagine having to use horribly scented and uncomfortable plastic pads during this time when I was feeling so fragile. Being able to wear the Lunapanties made me feel more like myself.
LUNAPADS FOR POSTPARTUMI have always had heavy periods, horrible cramps and terrible migraines. I first saw Lunapads five years ago, after I had my daughter. I thought that there was no way cloth could do what disposables did.
After my son was born three years ago I was looking for something that would not irritate my eczema. I decided to try Lunapads. I ordered the biggest heaviest pads I could find, thinking that they would barely be enough and I would be in the bathroom every two hours. I was totally wrong. I had to come back and order lighter flow pads, these things are AMAZING! I started using the lighter flow pads while waiting for my body to adjust to the Mirena I had inserted soon after my son's birth. It never did and I used Lunapads every single day for 2 years.
When I found out I was expecting again, I knew I would be returning to Lunapads for postpartum care. I was yet again impressed! Thank you Lunapads!
GET OFF THAT FENCE!I am an ardent environmentalist, and I've given up a lot of things because of that: meat, makeup, and disposable pads among them. I wasn't looking forward to it either.. who wants to have to wash pads? Gross! And then I made the switch completely this weekend. I felt like hitting myself for putting it off for so long.
For everyone on the fence about these, here's how each of my concerns were resolved: First, I was afraid they were going to be thicker than paper pads, which they are (not by much, but still). The thing is, they more than make up for it in comfort. They don't stick, or crinkle, or itch (God Forbid!). So all in all, they are more comfortable!
Next, I simply didn't want to have to wash them.... but that was easy too. I very strongly recommend the Moon Pad bag. Slip one off, slip one on, quick, easy, and no obvious trash left behind! I take them into the shower to rinse them, and use my second set while the others are in the wash. After a couple washes they are still soft and comfy and absorbent as ever!
I had a lot of concerns about these but let me tell you they have more than satisfied me! I adore all the patterns, and it's no joke - it really does make you feel much better about a process that is completely natural!
A PERSONALIZED SETI love using these pads! They are so soft and comfortable. Anytime I have to wear disposables I notice the difference right away, and can't wait to get a lunapad on again. I also like the color and design, I like knowing that it's my own personalized set.
CHANGING MY PERIOD FOREVERI'm not sure how to start this testimonial because what I'd like to say feels so big! Lunapads changed my life and I am so happy that I made the transition to reusable pads.
Prior to my switch, I had all of the common objections to reusable pads...that they would be hard to clean/take care of, that people would be able to tell, that they wouldn't be as reliable as disposable pads. My health and concerns about the environment inspired me to purchase a trial kit and I never looked back. None of my objections were true! In fact, the exact opposite of each is true!
Lunapads are easy to care for, easy to use, completely reliable...and they are actually comfortable to wear! But the best thing about them is how they make me feel. I feel more connected to myself, to my body, and to this planet. Plus, I have none of the health issues I had prior to my switch. Lunapads are an incredible product, it's an incredible company, and making the switch will change your periods forever.
NO MORE BULKY BAGS OF BLEACHED PADSI'm finally buying a Lunapads Kit after 6 years of looking at them. I had made my own pads (still use them 6 years later) and use a DivaCup. Wanted some new pads and the cost of a kit vs. time spent making them + materials equals a savings!
I've suffered painful periods (dysmenorrhea) since beginning my cycle at 11 years old. Lunapads have really helped with general discomfort of menstruating: nice and soft against delicate skin and no moisture trapped to cause chaffing. And no more bulky bags of bleached pads to store! Thanks Lunapads for great products!
IMPRESSED WITH QUALITYI am so impressed with the high quality of these products. I bought the starter kit and some extra liners. I was a bit apprehensive at the time, but after one cycle, I am hooked. I love that there are ZERO chemicals and no adverse skin reactions!! They are very comfortable and extremely easy to clean. I soaked them as the instructions mentioned just before washing and there were no stains. Thank you for being so committed to our health!
EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONSWow! Lunapads have completely amazed me! I am so happy with my decision to buy my first kit of lunapads - I'm not going to lie, it took me more than a month to finally make the decision to buy (I was worried that they were too expensive, or what if I didn't like, how would they possibly be able to work as well as disposables?) but I finally did and I just have to say, WOW!
Lunapads have exceeded all of my expectations and are one of the best products I have ever had in my possession! They are extremely comfortable (no more of the uncomfortable plastic-type stuff!), work perfectly, and are worth every penny! Thank you!
HAPPY PERIOD WITH NO GUILTThank you so much for such a wonderful product. I have always had this feeling of guilt when tossing away so so many disposable pads. With Lunapads I can have a happy period with no guilt! Thanks!
SAVING THE PLANET, 1 PAD AT A TIMEI have used the diva cup and lunapads for five years now and do not have any regrets. I love them so much that I wanted more and more people to know about this option in feminine hygiene. My friends thought I was crazy, but I gave a speech on the subject. I spoke to my nursing class about the benefits of using cloth over disposable pads and how the diva cup has revolutionized my period experience. The audience was a little timid, but after class I had a group asking me questions about the products. I have even informed my gynecologist about the revolution of using cloth pads and the diva cup. All in all, I am one happy woman saving the environment one pad and tampon at a time.
