Feeling Saalty

When I started working at Green Life, I immediately set my sights on the period underwear. I grabbed a pair and thought, “I should try it, right?”. My friends and I had previously spent a lot of time analyzing their potential with skepticism. I saw an opportunity to be the guinea pig and finally see what they were about. 

Managing my menstruation in the past entailed using a combination of cotton single-use pads and my silicone menstrual cup. I saw the Saalt Period underwear as a great replacement for the cotton single-use pads that I would use while at home or sleeping. Financially, I was feeling good about investing in period underwear that I could wash and re-use instead of spending upwards of ten dollars a month on single-use cotton pads and throwing them in the trash. A purchase of period underwear cost just under forty dollars which means that I saved somewhere in the ballpark of eighty dollars for this year alone! 

After researching the Saalt Period Underwear a bit more on the company website (and reading a number of glowing testimonials!) I decided to make my big purchase. When my next menstrual cycle came around I happily donned my high waist briefs period underwear and was blown away. Not only was the absorbance major (no leaks!), but the comfort was amazing. I was over the moon. I slept a full night and woke up happy and dry. Only problem? I wanted another pair immediately! 

My advice? Get them! It is a product that I’m so glad that I tried for myself. I have told all my friends about how my experience went and now if you’re reading this and considering the purchase, this is your sign that it is indeed a very very good move!
