Keeper Moon Cup
NEWS: I now sell menstrual cups at my new store:
I received this cup as a generous donation from a distributor. She sent me a personal message on YouTube, stating that she had seen my videos and review blog, and that she had an extra Keeper Moon Cup (the box had been damaged), and asked if I would like to have it for review purposes. I replied, and graciously accepted the offer. I would also like to thank her for the donation 🙂
After I got the Keeper Moon Cup in the mail, I hooked up my camera, and sat down to study it.
Since I had heard many times that MoonCup UK, Femmecup, and Keeper Mooncup were almost identical in size, shape and capacity, I immediately lined it up with the other two and compared them. As far as size/shape goes, they are indeed very close. The biggest difference being that Keeper Moon Cup is much smoother on the outside. There are no grips rings at all. This would be good for anyone who is irritated by the feel of grip textures.
The silicone is also about as thick and firm as that of Mooncup UK. Another thing I noticed is that, when I lined this cup up next to all the other brands I had– its stem was by far the longest. Of course, some cups are longer in the body, shorter in the stem. And vise-versa. Making them all come out about equal, when you line them up together. But honestly, placed on a flat table with all the others, Keeper Moon Cup’s stem makes it “taller” than all the others, in overall length. So if someone needs a cup that will be more reachable, I would say this one could probably help.
I did test this cup out too, during the tail end of my cycle. Insertion was very comfortable and easy, with the smooth material. No trouble popping open at all. Even with the stem fully intact, I could hardly feel it, courtesy of the smooth surface. There was no leaking, it maintained a good seal.
Removal– due to the slick outer surface, I applied the same techniques as I did with the LadyCup: Keep some toilet tissue in-hand and re-dry the fingers as needed during removal. Dry fingers = better grip. Also, like with MoonCup UK, Femmecup, and LadyCup– rocking this cup from side to side during removal works better to break the seal, than inserting a finger does.
Overall, it is a comfortable cup, and it seals great (this one was a size small, by the way).
