Sckoon Menstrual Cup Review

I have been using menstrual cups for about a year now. As you probably have read in my first menstrual cup review, my first time wasn’t very pretty. In fact, it was down right scary. I thought I would never try another menstrual cup again in my life.

but like they say….. if at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again….

I had talked to a few friends that were using menstrual cups too, and after I heard some of their horror stories, I knew mine really wasn’t that bad!

I know, I’m supposed to be writing words of positivity when using menstrual cups and trust me, I’m getting there. I’m just trying to be real with you! I had to get my mind right!

I tried two other cups before I received my Sckoon Cup. By this time, I was a menstrual cup user through and through. I was happy with what was happening. I really wasn’t bothered by getting my period anymore. However, I didn’t realize how happy I could have been for so much longer if I had gotten my Sckoon Cup first!

The Sckoon Cup by far is my favorite menstrual cup yet. It’s comfortable, easy to put in and take out, it holds a lot and it’s really soft plastic, so you don’t feel it!

I can easily put my cup in in the morning and have no worries getting through the day without leaks. I know that once it’s in there, it’s in the right spot and I don’t have to mess with it to get it perfect. It’s really soft plastic, so it’s easy to shape to put in and you don’t have to worry about snapbacks! If you’re a menstrual cup user and have never experienced this, count your lucky stars! Trust me, that’ll wake you up in the morning!

I have never, ever had a single leak with my Sckoon, ever. It’s so awesome!

I love it so much, on the morning that I started my period, I decided to share my love for Sckoon on Snap Chat and Instagram! haha

As you can see in the picture, this cup has a really long tip on it. This is super helpful for women like me. Other cups I have to dig a little more than I’d like to, to get it out. With this long tip, I have no issues. my cervix is tilted and kinda shoved over to the left a little bit so my cups ride a little higher than what I think most women would. However, if the tip is too long, you can always cut it down.

Overall, Sckoon is my all-time favorite menstrual cup to use, hands down.

I highly suggest checking them out. Plus, right now by entering your email on their website, you’ll get 15% your first order!

Happy Period!!

OCHO Organic Candy Bar Review

Oh, Candy Bars! I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before and I will mention it again. I am a candy junkie. I hide candy where I can. It’s like if it’s hidden then others don’t know how much I actually eat. Haha. Well until now I guess. I used to be a big gummy and chewy candy type of person. When I started looking into organic candy, I was seeing more chocolate than gummy candy, which I’m definitely okay with! So, I decided to give OCHO Candy Bars a try!

I was so stoked when I got my package from OCHO! They use no preservatives and no artificial additives. You get true organic ingredients, I love that! Reading their label, they don’t hide anything. You get exactly what you think you’re getting.

My all time favorite flavor when it comes to anything mixed with chocolate is definitely Peppermint!


The refreshing and cooling from the mint mixed the chocolate, you can’t beat that. OCHO’s peppermint is so smooth and good. It’s not gritty and doesn’t leave a bad after taste. They were my favorite to have after a meal. Even though it’s chocolate, it made me feel like I had better breath after I ate!

My husband’s favorite was Chocolate and Peanut Butter!

He may not have said that it was his favorite, but empty wrappers and missing peanut butter chocolate bars don’t lie. The peanut butter has that chunky peanut butter feel. It’s not gritty but almost has that texture, but I think this is from the fine peanut pieces. Either way, it doesn’t mess with the taste at all. It definitely reminds me of a healthier version of Reese’s cup! Yum Yum!

The Caramel is soo good!

Look at that caramel! It is so ooey and gooey and delicious! It just pours out of the chocolate. Oh my goodness, remember I am a sucker for anything chewy. Well, this is that! It’s buttery and smooth and the best thing to go with chocolate.

Lastly, I’m usually not a fan of Coconut.

However, something about this was different. The coconut was soft and sweet. It was finer and not overwhelming. I liked it so much, I ate more! That never happens, like ever. I hate coconut. Trust me, this is a winner.

I cannot say enough good about OCHO candy bars. If you’re looking for an organic alternative to chocolate or candy bars, OCHO is it!! The candy bars cost roughly $2 and I spent more on other candy bars that weren’t organic! Worth it!

Check out OCHO for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
