My second biggest collaboration of 2018 and I am so eternally grateful for the opportunity to not only have collaborated but to also be an official ambassador for BeYou. My life has changed so much since starting this blog in such a short amount of time, but I think I’ll save all that for another post, let’s get back to this amazing collab!
So what’s BeYou?
In their own words:
a natural solution to help soothe period cramps! ‘Natural’ and ‘herbal’ aren’t just buzzwords to us; they’re at the core of our mission: to create science-backed, natural products for women everywhere. Scientists are increasingly finding inspiration by observing the wonders of mother nature. By correlating the physiological effects of different organic ingredients, you end up with products, which aren’t ‘only’ natural; but created and tested using rigorous scientific research. It’s the best of both worlds, letting you… BeYou.
BeYou Period Cramp Relief Patches are 100% natural, contain no chemicals, and work wonders for women during periods.
By relaxing the muscles it provides discreet and continuous relief from period pain caused by muscle cramps.
BeYou claim to:
🌻 be 100% natural
🌻 long lasting (up to 12 hours relief)
🌻 soothes & relieves period pain
🌻 be able to use anywhere!
Okay so now that you know what BeYou actually is & how it works, I’m going to go ahead and give you my review. So firstly I’m going to start by saying, I have always suffered really really bad with my periods. I have PCOS which has been diagnosed for around 18 years now (I was so so young when they diagnosed me!) having said this, my periods have always been right on time. Never late. Always exactly on the same day each month and I never miss a period either so they’re super regular. I guess what I mean by having really bad periods, is in regards to the pain. It’s unbearable. I’m not one for taking tablets and never been a fan of them either tbh! I’ll only take pain relief tablets if I have no other choice, that’s why when BeYou got in touch with me, I couldn’t have been more happy! A 100% natural product, aimed to relief period pain for up to 12 hours. Exactly what I need!
So I decided to use these strips from BeYou for the duration of my period so that I could give you guys the best review based on my overall use rather than just from one time if that makes sense.
So appearance wise..
Okay so each sachet contains 5 strips. Each 5 pack sachet is priced at £6.99 which amounts to about £1.40 per sachet which I personally think is brilliant value for money! Considering the strips give you up to 12 hours pain relief. I really love the packaging the strips come in. The design is simple but bold. I like that the key points are listed on the packaging with everything that you need to know. When I opened up the sachet, I was instantly met with an AMAZING smell of menthol & eucalyptus which already is a calm and soothing scent. I applied one of the strips onto my lower stomach where my cramps were at the time. You can use these strips literally wherever you’re cramping, I know for me I sometimes get cramps on my side too, so you can totally apply the strip to wherever you need to! The strip was really easy to apply, and it’s really really sticky so once it’s on, it doesn’t come off easily which I also found a bonus! So many plaster type strips always come off easily, but I liked that this was firmly applied without the risk of coming off.
Once the strip was on, I felt a cooling sensation to the applied area, I guess this was the menthol in the ingredients. Within about 10 minutes it was working and gave me relief from my cramps! I was honestly so shocked at how fast it began to work! Usually if I’m forced to take paracetamols or pain relief type tablets, I’m waiting at least 30 minutes before they even begin to work. The same with a hot water bottle! So the fact these strips were working within 10 minutes literally amazed me! I kept the strip on all day under my clothes, and removed it in the evening. I did the same thing for the next couple of days each time I would begin to get a stomach cramp, and again, within 10 minutes the strips had began to work and I was relieved of all pain! Amazing.
I am 100% going to be using these from now on, each month whenever I get stomach cramps. I also feel like these strips would be super good for lower back pain too.
Out of 5 stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
(I couldn’t think of any fault what’s so ever!)
