Recommended Sanitary Products

It can often be quite challenging to find sanitary products that you love. I personally have very sensitive skin, so it's important for me to use products that don't cause irritation. I also like to prioritise products that don't hurt the environment, while also being economically viable. Now is such a great time to talk about sanitary products that tick all these boxes because the market is expanding in so many different ways - just watch the video to the right - so follow the links to see a few of my favourite sanitary things!

If you have a favourite sanitary product let me know via the 'Let's Chat' box so I can add it to the list! 


Hannah Pad's are probably one of the best things I have ever purchased. They're certified organic cloth pads that come in a range of different sizes to suit your body and cycle. They're comfortable and breathable, and they don't irritate my skin at all. They sit in your undies and are secured by some press studs. They also fold in on themselves so you can discretely store them if you need a change while you're out and about. Hannah pads come in lots of pretty fabrics, and they often have really great sales. In the long run, you end up saving a considerable amount of money compared to buying disposable pads every time you have your period, and in my opinion, are worth every cent!


Cottons are a great sanitary brand that do lots of fantastic work towards normalising periods and advocating for women's health. Their pads and tampons are my go to disposable product for when other options aren't suitable, and as they're chemical free and all natural they keep me feeling clean and fresh without the concern of irritation. You can get them at your local supermarket or chemist, and you can also check out they're online store, with the added bonus of a blog, by clicking the link above!
