Pictures Of The Keeper Moon Cup I Won


I posted a while back about the Keeper/Moon Cup contest, and how I got an email message saying that I won… There were several winners, actually, I guess the more people that enter, the more people win. So I was informed that the cups would be shipped out on August 28th. So I’ve been religiously checking my mail… And it came today!

It was in a medium-sized manila envelope, which contained the cup, its storage pouch, and a leaflet with instructions and an order form. The leaflet had a hand written note saying “For A Friend”. I’m including pictures of everything down below, and giving my review here. Also, again, here is the link for the contest if you want to enter. I read the new page, and I think it said this month’s entries have to be in by September 15th:

Ok, so here’s my review….

The Cup:

I really like it! Smooth all over, clear material. I live with my sister, and she has a MoonCup UK (a gift from her sister-in-law, who lives in London). She loves it, and inspired me to try for the contest and get my own cup. Anyway, she and I sat down and compared the two… They are basically the same. The only difference is, the bottom of my cup is a little skinner. And MCUK is more yellowish, naturally, with grip rings at the base. But other than that, they are almost identical-- they feel the same in stiffness/flexibility. They hold the same amount. Both have 6 little holes below the rim, instead of 4 like many others. Both have the tiny letter B in the bottom-inside. But my cup has 2 spill-prevention rings on the inside, which should be visible in the photos below-- I flipped my cup inside-out in one of the pictures, to get a shot of the inner rings.

The Pouch:

Nice material, both the pouch and the drawstring are blue, and very durable. Doesn’t feel like it will wear out any time soon, even when I wash it.

Trying The Cup:

My period JUST ended this morning, lol. So I had to test on a dry run, pretty much. I was pleased with it overall. Folded easily, went in smoothly, popped open with no trouble. The smoothness of the outside made it so comfortable… I was sure I would be trimming the stem, but actually, I think its comfortable enough to leave it as it is. Even though the stem sticks out of me, it doesn’t poke or bother me, so that’s good. Removal…. I basically just used the same trick many women use for the slick ladycup-- keep my fingers dry with some tissue paper. Pinch the base and rock it from side-to-side. Came right out, no problems. Couldn’t even feel the cup when it was in. I bent over, stood up, sat down… nothing. So I would say its definitely doable. Its awsome that I’m sitting here with this cup next to me now, and it didn’t cost me anything. If you need one, I say jump all over that contest, and put your heart into what you write.
