Anytime Menstrual Cup (Size 1), now on sale at P630 (limited time only)
Corrine, 31: “I bought this a year and a half ago, and I still can’t stop recommending it to friends! It is very ideal for ladies who are active, and are active in the water! I surf with this on, and it just does what it’s supposed to do! I do have to wear a pad just in case I wouldn’t have time to drain, or if I’m on my heavy flow. It really has complemented my lifestyle. [I] highly recommend this!”

Anytime Menstrual Cup (Size 2) Blue, now on sale at P630 (limited time only)
Jennifer, 33: “What I like about this product is it’s reusable (up to 10 years) and hygienic thus reducing single use and plastic waste. [The menstrual cup] is not only cost effective, but very comfortable (it doesn’t feel like I’m putting something inside) and convenient, it can be worn up to 12 hours. It has no foul odour at all… When I had it the first time, it took some getting used to and the techniques on how to do it. Just be in your most relaxed state. I have been using the cup for 6 cycles now. It’s the best decision I have made. I’m very happy with it because I don’t have to deal with rashes from using sanitary disposable pads.”

Anytime Menstrual Cup PLUS (Size 1), now on sale at P788 (limited time only)
Cham, 20: “..I was skeptical to buy this at first but I wanted to help stop global warming for the sake of the future generations because we were educated that our sanitary napkins contribute a lot in plastic production. I gave it a try and so with my small gesture of action [of] wanting to help the world, I actually benefited from it. I no longer get tagos and it’s pretty much hassle-free because I only get to wash once a day every evening.”

Basycs Menstrual Cup - HeavyFlo, P645
Rowena, 32: “This is really a life-changing product! [It’s] good for Mother Earth and hassle-free (once you get the hang of the process of using this cup). Admittedly on my first period, I was so naive and uncomfortable with it but after researching on Youtube and getting some tips from users, I was able to soldier on. [The] second period is a bit better but I still leaked (cloth panty liner to the rescue) I’m still learning how to avoid leaks and emptying the cup in a common restroom. I must say I’m committed to using the cup, I’m not going back to using disposable menstrual pads which I find gross now.”

Pomé Menstrual Cup (Standard Size), P1,799
Bianca, 23: “I stopped using my former menstrual cup because it was too big and my period became really light after a few years after taking the pill. I was so happy with this menstrual cup because its almost half the size as my old one! Packaging is also really cute and the pouch and super useful, especially on my travels.”

Zero Basics Deep Cleaning Charcoal Face and Body Soap, P120
Yana, 22: “The bar lasts for so long! It lasted me 3 months, although I use it alternatively with my other body soap. I love that the soap can be used both in face and body. It also has an exfoliating effect because of the charcoal bits that is in the soap. In my months of using it, it did not give me any pimples. I also like the fact that the soap doesn’t get all mushy when wet. I will definitely buy one again soon and try their other products!”

Absolutely love the scent too. I’ve repurchased twice already and will most probably buy again when I run out!”

Kalikhasan Eco-Friendly Solutions Lavender Tea Tree Nourishing Conditioner Bar (50g), P195
Erika, 21: “I love it! It smells like lavender and I really love that scent. Having it on my hair is so delightful. It has tea tree on it too so I know it’s doing a little bit of cleansing on my scalp as well because tea tree is known for that. Also the fact that [it] is natural, handmade, [and] packaged in paper. It’s perfect if you’re [trying to] cut down on those conditioners in plastic bottles that have ingredients that you can’t even understand. [It] definitely gives my hair a healthier shine and it feels soft afterwards.”

LiRi-Usables Reusable Cotton Pads, P200
Rochelle, 27: “I didn’t expect this to be so big as most cotton rounds are only small. [It’s] very convenient to bring around whenever you travel as they come with a mesh pouch. Very easy to clean too! I use both sides though and it is very soft on the skin. Doesn’t even irritate the skin unlike other cotton rounds.”

Mimi & Me Greentools Bamboo Toothbrush, P99
Cham, 20: “I recently turned into an eco-friendly person because of my awareness of the Amazon forest. Seeing Mother Nature being destroyed breaks my heart and it is truly saddening. With my small act of willingness to help, I hope that I would make a big difference. I love this toothbrush the bristles are very soft and the material being made out of bamboo [gave] it an easy grip.”

This is a good product to start with in terms of switching to a more environmentally-sound / eco-friendly lifestyle — something I’ve always wanted to do.

Earth Goods Bamboo Charcoal Toothpaste Duo Pack, now on sale at P315 (limited time only)
Anna: “I was looking for a natural toothpaste and ran across this one. It is flouride-free and has a pleasant minty smell and that is what’s the most important for me. I bought this not really expecting any whitening benefits, but after using this toothpaste for about 4 weeks, it seems to have a mild whitening effect! I like this toothpaste a lot! It has a black color to it, but surprisingly, it’s not messy when you use it at all, which is a big plus for me. I will say that in as far as this being an all-natural toothpaste, I find it rather good. I bought 2.”
