I’m about to drop a bomb on you because this is my new favorite Menstrual Cup ever. Let’s talk about saalt menstrual cup review.
Seriously, I have been using menstrual cups personally since 2014, and I’m just really passionate about how they changed my life.
Saalt menstrual cup review
I will share my review about a new favorite menstrual Cup, so you’re probably going to want to stick around.
But today, let’s talk about the Salt Cup.
Since May of this year, I’ve been using the Salt menstrual Cup, so it’s been nearly five months.
But after the first time I put it in, it became my favorite instantly.
So there are two versions of the Salt Cup that I’ll be talking about today, the regular, which is the one that I’ve been using more, and the Salt Soft cup.
Salt cup sizes review
They both come in two sizes, the regular and soft saalt Cup.
The regular size is better for me because I do have a higher cervix.
The small is slightly shorter, but the size difference isn’t super drastic between the two.
So first, I want to focus on the original Saalt Cup (regular) because this is the Cup that I’ve pretty much exclusively been using since May.
Unless I’ve needed a collapsible Cup option, this Cup is a great size for me.
I can get all 12 hours of the capacity potential with it when I have a regular flow.
Which Saalt Cup should I get?
In terms of comparing this to some of my other go too cups, the saalt menstrual cup is definitely more round and kind of bulbous or wider than my intimate lily Cup and Tampax cup.
The saalt Cup has a little less flared out, and because this is flexible, it is actually very easy to insert despite it, looking kind of large and the very top part, the rim is actually a lot firmer than the rest of the Cup.
So it opens up easily once it is inserted.
My Experience with the Saalt Menstrual cup.
The first time I used it was actually on vacation.
I had a feeling I was going to get my period.
That was kind of early, and lo and behold. Of course, I did.
So I was a little bit nervous about inserting it because we’re about to go out on the town for the whole day. But my body just like accepted it.
How to insert the Saalt cup?
Inserting the saalt cup is very easy. Use any folds the C fold, punch down, or seven fold you’re comfortable with. Relax and insert it from the trim or folded edge in your vagina.
As soon as I started putting this in, my body just kind of like sucked it up into place, and it was sealed.
Is the Saalt good for beginners?
The saalt menstrual cup is good for beginners because it’s easy to insert and remove. It can easily sucked into your vagina so fast. I’ve worn this cup swimming.
I’ve worn this Cup just lounging in a bathing suit, which is probably even more nerve-wracking when you have your period than actually playing in the water.
I’ve even worn this Cup doing pretty intense workout sessions with a lot of squatting motions, which, even though I do usually trust my Cup, would typically make me very nervous, but no problems whatsoever with the Salt Cup.
And because it is so easy to both insert and removes, it was actually a lot less nerve-racking.
Leakage Review with Saalt Cup
I have never experienced leaks with this Cup, and I can’t say that with any other cup in my collection right now. The first time had absolutely no leaks whatsoever.
I also did wear it both on the plane to Paris and during the trip because, of course, again on vacation, I got my period, and it was just really nice to have a cup that was so reliable that I didn’t have to worry about leaking or not being sealed properly.
So let’s talk about the removal process since I just mentioned how easy it was.
I will admit I was nervous the first time I was taking this out because the shape reminds me of my Lena Cup, which was a bit difficult for me to remove because of how around the bottom of the Cup is.
But the Salt Cup did not let me down. First of all, even though the stem is stretchy, it’s stiffer than the Lena Cup, so you can grab onto it and use it to help wiggle the Cup down.
I feel like they are a little bit more pronounced than the Lena, so they are very easy to grab onto, squeeze, break the seal, and then pull the Cup out.
Saalt cup Vs Lily Cup
So the original Salt Cup is definitely on the firmer side, out of all of my go-to cups, especially the Lily Cup, which was my previous all-time favorite.
But with that said, it’s not uncomfortable at all.
Pros with Saalt Cup
I don’t feel the pressure throughout wearing it.
There is one little weird thing that happens with this Cup that I have never experienced with others.
Sometimes when I insert this Cup, and maybe I’ve got it in a slightly off angle, if I start walking around, I can feel the Cup is kind of moving into the correct place, and what that feels like is a little bit of a pressure release.
It’s not painful at all, but it’s definitely startling, and that’s probably also happening with other cups.
I’m just not feeling it because the rims of those aren’t as firm.
Salt Soft Cup Review
All right, so now let’s talk about the salt Soft Cup.
This was just released this year.
They designed it in collaboration with the Put a Cup in it website.
If you’re unfamiliar with the website, it is an awesome resource for menstrual cup users and beginners.
Or if you’re just curious about it, they have extensive reviews of pretty much any cup you can think of, as well as a quiz that will tell you which Cup is right for you.
What about the Saalt Soft cup?
So, as the soft name suggests, this Cup is slightly less firm.
Well, actually a lot less firm than the original, and it was designed to be more of a middle-of-the-road cup because sometimes firmer cups could cause maybe a little bit more cramping or bladder pressure.
For me, the saalt original doesn’t do either of those things, and I’m very sensitive.
I get really bad cramps, and I have to pee all the time anyway.
But just in case you’re even more sensitive than I am, the salt soft may be a great option for you.
The shape of the Cup?
Aside from the difference in firmness, though, the size and shape of the Cup are exactly the same.
It still has the same great features in terms of the slightly protruding rim, the stiffer stem, and the grips at the bottom.
However, for me personally, because the soft is more flexible, I don’t feel like it’s as easy to insert and seal as the original.
It definitely doesn’t snap open as easily Once inside.
I would say the process of getting it sealed is pretty much on par with the other cups in my collection that I have tried.
Which Saalt menstrual Cup should I get?
But since I tried the soft Cup after trying the original and after being so impressed with the firm rim and how easy it was to seal, the soft Cup left a little bit for me to be desired.
However, if you’ve tried cups in the past and maybe they’ve been uncomfortable for you, that could be a firmness issue, so the soft could solve those problems for you.
