* Beyou soothing natural period pain patches.

Hey there! So a few weeks ago i was very kindly sent the *Beyou soothing natural period patch patches £5.99 to test out, these patches are meant to soothe and help the pain of periods naturally using menthol and eucalyptus. Now i am a sufferer of PCOS, so ive had very painful periods for years, along with cycles that can easily be 40+ days etc. I was interested to see if these would help ease the pain at all.

As you can see, the patches themselves look a bit like a big plaster, now i knew that as a plus sized women there was no way these pads would be big enough for me but having showed them to an average sized friend of mine there not really big enough full stop! they are also that classic plaster colour, so if you wanted too wear them but knew they might end up on show you couldn’t be super pale (like me) or darker either.

i popped one on (they come in a pack of 5) when i was getting some pain, the first thing i noticed was a strong smell of menthol and eucalyptus. They do lay pretty much completely flat against the skin but even so if you were wearing something completely skin tight they would show through, i knew they were there but they weren’t bulky or annoying at all. They slowly become cooling on the skin, and i can get why that is meant to be soothing but for me i found it distracting and annoying, i didn’t like how it felt and though its meant to calm your muscles i wanted to tense my muscles more! i took them off after a while finding them too distracting, they did come off very easily but i dont have much hair on my stomach at all, i would watch it if you do. 

I can understand how they are meant to soothe, because obviously the reason we get pain is because our muscles are contracting and tensing up and this is meant to soothe them and ease the pain that comes from that. And we do this with sore tense muscles all over the body so it does make a lot of sense, but sadly it just doesn’t seem to work for me! My body can be rather picky and it was with this, its a shame as a natural way to ease pain is always a plus in my book.

i still would say give this a go if you think it will work for you, because peoples bodies and there pain is so unique and you know what works best for you!
