Feminine Care: My Honey Pot review

• By

Hey loves! I’m bringing you my take on the Honey Pot company pads that I decided to try out recently.  Video reviews and social media posts about this brand have been swirling the internet for the past few years, and when Aunt Flo made an appearance last week, it was my chance to give them a shot.  

My local Target had the entire Honey Pot Co. product line all in stock.  I picked up the regular-sized pads and a few other items that I probably did not really need (Target gets me EVERY. TIME.), and headed home.  

As a self-proclaimed girly girl, I was immediately in love with the packaging. The cute colors and the super-convenient, resealable opening are genius! Words of support during a time that is not so easy to deal with for many women, can be found on the outside.

I was thinking to myself, “You may be feeling like crap but, you will get through it girl! Yes!!

Product performance

I’m all about that plant based everything life, especially feminine care products for many reasons.  It is healthier for you and the effects on your body are undeniable. The ingredients found in mainstream feminine care products have been linked to bacterial vaginosis, hormonal imbalance, and fertility issues, and I don’t need those types of problems (neither do you). Also, as someone who has been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) I know I have to be extra wary of everything I put on or in my body.

However, I have not been satisfied with natural feminine care brands I’ve used in the past. Not even a little bit. The leaking (not cute!), shifting, and the icky, wet feeling all day were enough to make me take my chances and go back to regular pads.

The Honey Pot really convinced me that non-toxic products can perform just as well (or better)!  They stay in place, the absorbency was just right, the size of the pad was perfect, and the herbal infusion gave my girly parts a very spa-like feeling.  

Yes, each pad has mint, lavender, and aloe infused into it and I was totally here for it!  Honestly, on the first day the cooling sensation was pretty strong — like Vapor Vicks rub strong.  After that, I was used to it and almost welcomed the extra pampered vibe I was getting.

Thank you Honey Pot co. for winning me over! I have not tried the feminine wash or wipes but, I will be in the near future.

Here’s a video by the founder of the Honey Pot, Beatrica Espada on why she created this much-needed product line.

Have you made the switch to non-toxic feminine products?  What has been your experience?
