Beppy is a brand from the Netherlands that sells a revolutionary new type of tampons, without any string. Take a look below to see how this (cute) little tampon looks like.
When I first was asked to review them, I was both excited, curious and nervous. I had never tried anything like this before, but the concept really spoke to me.
What they say: “The Beppy tampon is a soft, flexible sponge that you wear inside during your period. Beppy offers invisible protection, even up to 8 hours. Invisible because the Beppy tampon is string-free.” The thing I had never heard of, a tampon with which you can have sex with while using it: “With Beppy you can also stay clean and comfortable making love during your period. And you don’t need to explain anything if you don’t want to because your partner won’t notice it.“
See, as it is a sponge, your partner nor you will feel it when having sex. This and the fact that it doesn’t have a string were what I felt is more revolutionary than other tampons. Also, the claim that you don’t feel it in you – which is something I was extremely excited about, since I always feel it when I have a tampon in me and it can sometimes me very uncomfortable.
The packaging is cute and the pink is girly, but lets get to the facts. See that little hole? That’s so you can pull it back out after using it. You can wear it for up to 8 hours, depending on your menstrual flux. Also, when you first take it out of the packaging, it is a bit humid. This is due to the lactagel, which is supposed to help with the lubrication when inserting the tampon. Since it is a sponge, without the lubricant or if you try to use it while being still very dry, it might hurt when getting in, which is what happened the first time I tried.
The second time, however, I waited until I was already a bit wet and it went in pretty easy. The hardest part was getting it out. Don’t get me wrong, the Beppy tampon is extremely easy to get it out, if you know what you’re doing. It was my first time, so I needed a bit longer, but once I reached the loop and was able to pull it out, it went pretty quickly and easy. My tampon was also not completely soaked – when it is fully soaked, it’s easier for you to reach it, because it naturally gets a bit lower and easier to grab.
What for me was very surprising, was the fact that I did not feel it one bit! I would have forgotten I was on my period if it weren’t for the cramps and the fact that I was excited to see how the Beppy tampon worked! It did not leak at all and was so comfortable, I felt in heaven.
Beppy is a company based in the Netherlands and as of now you can only buy them online at Beppy.com.
