Ladies, let's be real; No one likes getting their period. From running to the store in the middle of the night, to throwing away your favorite pair of underwear, or just dealing with constant pain for days on end - periods can really suck. But recently, my friend told me about Sustain Natural, which make my periods suck a lot less. Sustain Natural is a women's health and wellness brand that offers a one-stop-shop for all-natural pads, liners, and tampons delivered straight to your door each month. Here are the top 5 favorite reasons why I love Sustain.
The personalized subscription
After my period each month, I inevitably end up with a million super tampons and thin panty liners that I don't need. Rather than separate boxes or a variety pack with only half the things I'll use, Sustain lets you customize your kit based on your flow. No more box of 40 liners when all i needed were a couple on my last light days! I can also pause or cancel at any time, which is good to know, because sometimes my period can be pretty irregular.
I never have to worry about being caught off guard
Everyone has a funny story when they were caught off guard by their period, though maybe not so funny at the time. For me, it was the time I slept over at a guy's house, and apparently had started my period in my sleep, and the sheets were ruined. Or, the time I was giving a presentation in a college class and didn't realize I had leaked through my light jeans - I was mortified! Sustain might not prevent all leaks, but at least it saves me a trip to the store thanks to my subscription. I'm always prepared to get through the rough week with my organic goodies (and they come in really cute boxes).
It's super convenient
That brings me to my next point. The last thing I want to do when I'm crampy and tired is head to the supermarket to pick up tampons or pads. With a subscription box that comes straight to my door every two months, I no longer have to deal with these super annoying last-minute trips.
My vag*na is so much happier
Vag*nas are pretty sensitive and I don't have a single friend who hasn't experienced some sort of problem down there. For years, I've had issues with irritation and itchiness and even got the occasional yeast infection, but since switching to Sustain's all-natural products, those issues have vastly improved. Many other tampon brands have a chemical film to hold the cotton together and are filled with fragrances and dyes, but Sustain doesn't do that - they are totally transparent about the only ingredient in their tampons is 100% certified organic cotton.
I can do what I want
Well, I could say that I always do what I want, but with Sustain I don't have to think twice about it. Leaking or not being prepared when my period starts won't stop me from living my life. I'm always stocked up with what I need and know that what I'm putting in my body is safe!
