Review: Zen Moon (CSP)

http://hyenacart.com/stores/zen-moon/

Firstly for those that have stumbled across this page and havent a clue what this is all about, we’re talking CSP or cloth sanitary protection. Yes that’s right, washable and reusable cloth pads for a woman’s monthlies. If this scares you at all and is not your cup of tea then please move on, otherwise this post is to help people learn more about CSP and discover more about this particular brand. Thanks xx

Zen Moon make gorgeous luxury pads, each one is hand-made and hand dyed, so is unique. Unfortunately the Hyena Cart shop has been closed for a while but I came across these pads at Bums N Roses.  I’m sure when the Hyena Cart shop is  open again you could order them in various sizes etc but seeing as I’ve only bought and seen them at Bums N Roses then this review will be commenting on the range and price they are there.

They are all bamboo velour topped with either a fleece or wool backing, personally I’m a fleece backing kind of girl as I find the wool backed pads make me feel hot and I notice the wool pads more when wearing them, plus I like how fleece pads can just be chucked in on a hot wash without fear of shrinkage! But everyone is different and other people will only use wool pads, so it’s always a case of try one before you get a whole set. So price range they start from £7.75 for a 9″ fleece backed pad and go up to £10 for a 12″ wool backed pad. So I guess they are a little on the pricey side but as with all imported goodies the price reflects that, but for me I love them so much it’s well worth it!

I have a 9″ pad and two 12″ pads, all fleece backed, I use them at nights, and find them to be so comfy, soft and they make me feel ‘protected’ IYKWIM.  Even on heavy nights the 12″ pads have coped really great and they’ve stayed looking nice wash after wash. I actually really love the wrap around design of these, they dont seem to move about and as mentioned, they make me feel very secure. But they definitely are big pants pads, even with having two closure snap settings, you do need a big pant to pull them off as there’s a lot of fabric that’ll just bunch up otherwise.

I absolutely adore the colours they come in, definitely something for everyone, reds, blues, purples, greens, light/dark, etc. and they’ve kept their colour really well, hardly faded at all. And they feel really well made, in fact I’m not sure I have anything negative to say about them other then I wish they were a smidge cheaper or there were more available! I’d love to get a few more but really I’ve got enough at the minute so cant justify buying more. But I think I might have to see about maybe buying a few new pads in the new year, as I’m sure by Christmas they’d have paid for themselves in savings.

I love these pads and they are always one of the first ones I reach for, if you have a heavy flow or want something for nights then these are definitely worth trying!

I bought the pads mentioned in this post and did this review because I wanted to, no one asked me to and no compensation was received for reviewing them.
