The Australian JuJu cup company graciously agreed to send me 2 samples of their product– one of each size. They sent them in the boxes, with samples of all 3 of their satiny storage pouches.
Here is a video I did on the product:
And some photos I took:
JuJu comes in 2 sizes:
Model 1 for those under 30, who have not given birth vaginally
Length from rim to base of cup 46mm
Length from rim to stem tip 65mm
Model 2 for those who have given birth vaginally, or are over 30
Capacity 30 ml
Length rim to base of the cup 50mm
Length rim to stem tip 69mm
The first thing I noticed when I opened the samples, was the boxes. As I’ve seen another reviewer comment, they do open up like a flower– so pretty! You can see this in the pictures I have, and also in the video I made. Inside, you have your cup in its satiny pouch, and an instruction leaflet.
When you first open the box, it kind of reminds me of those Chinese take-out containers 🙂
The cups are a really clear silicone, very smooth. They are medium in firmness, just right I think. Not too firm, but not too soft.
I was able to try the cups out during my cycle. They were easy to keep folded. Insertion was comfortable. and I did not have any trouble getting them to pop open. Not with either size. Removal was a bit slippery though, so I just used the ever famous “dry fingers” trick, where I keep toilet paper in my hand and re-dry the fingers a few times to make my grip better. I just bore down a bit to bring the smaller size cup closer to my reach.
The larger cup was a bit easier to remove, because I am very short inside (low cervix) so the body of the large was slightly longer and easier to reach.
Both sizes have excellent capacity, but especially the large. On my heaviest day, it lasted me all day long! Pretty comfortable too, I didn’t feel it. I would recommend both of these cups for people with heavier flows, for sure. But of course, I think maybe some more defined grips might help.
Cleaning was a breeze, because the material is smooth, and the second rim is slanted a bit, so nothing gets in there. All in all, its a great cup, very classy and well presented. I would say a lot of design went into this, and its going to be a brand well sought after. I would like to say thank you very much to the JuJu company for allowing me to review their product, and for their generous samples! 🙂
