TCS Eco and Crimson Moon cloth pad review

This week we have quite a big review as I bought a lot of these pads through a joint Facebook page that the sellers TCS Eco and Crimson Moon use. Now a majority of my favourite pads come from these two companies and from the photos that I add I hope you can all see why I love them! They both have an amazing range of fabrics and lengths to choose from and are some of the most lovely people to talk to if you get a bit stuck.

Okay so I’m going to start with my TCS Eco pads as I only have three of these (so far) and a pair of scrundies.IMG_1249

The Supernatural and Walking Dead pad were ordered together and I then added the Harry Potter one on to the order through a market night purchase. The first two have a brilliant Windpro backer that has washed really well and has no pulling what so ever. The placement is perfect and so is the top stitching. Very impressed. The size is around 10” and are regulars. I have found that 8-10” is now my preferred length and so these are really comfy to wear. I haven’t been able to fully test out the absorbency as my cycle has been all over the place since April and so a lot of them haven’t been fully abused yet. Although I have worn them on regular days and so far, had no leaks at all. The Harry Potter pad has a different type of windpro back which has got a few bobbly bits on it and isn’t as smooth as the other pads but still very soft and doesn’t affect the overall quality of the pad or how absorbent it is. It’s just something I noticed, they grip really well in my undies and don’t move around like some of my other pads do so I use these pads when I’m at work and don’t want to be conscious of them all day. I can tell that I’m wearing them but I’m not worried about them showing through my trousers making other people aware them I’m wearing them.

All three of these have the absorbency embroidered down the centre and has the brand on the wing which is really pretty. It also helps me remember what I’m wearing and where I can order more from in the future. My only downside is that on the Supernatural pad the fabric does seem to have gone a bit loose in the wash. I think that’s the best way to describe it. It bunches slightly around the embroidery like the material has stretched out if that makes sense.

Again not a problem and doesn’t affect the use, just a slight cosmetic problem for me. It goes in my pants so it’s not really a problem.

As for my scrundies, they match my Team Daryl pad! I love them and they fit me perfectly. There was a small glitch when they were ordered which meant it took around 8-10weeks for them to reach me, but I love them so it’s worth it. Any issues were sorted very quickly by the seller and she contacted me straight away to tell me about the delay which is fantastic customer service! I honestly love them all and will be buying many more pads in the future.DSCF2406

On to my Crimson Moon pads. These two sellers have their own shops and pages which I will link down below, but I found them through the group page. I have had two orders from this store so far and now have six pads from her. The first three were ones that I ordered as a custom order and I bought them through Facebook as I had a few problems with her store site to begin with. These problems were my own computers fault and not a website issue as far as I’m aware and so you lot should have no problems, if you do then let her know!DSCF2408

I have my second Team Daryl pad which has a slightly different design and colour. I prefer the colour on the TCS one as it’s a very solid black whereas this one is in a lighter gray colour and doesn’t stand out as much, I like the bolder black background but both pads rock so not an issue.DSCF2407

The other two are my Harry Potter patronus pad and a Star Trek pad. Love the both of these and they have become my first reach for pads so far. The size of them is spot on at the 9-10” mark and they snap up at around 2.5”. I prefer the snapped width of the TCS pads as it fits my knickers a little better but they all fit nice and snug and don’t move around when I’m wearing them. The fourth pad from Crimson Moon is the Beauty and the Beast awesomeness! I added this on in the market night and am in love. I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet and it’s a 12” pad so it’ll be one of my overnight pads. I can’t fault it, the placement, the colours, the fabric and thickness…perfect!

 

My final two pads are from a later date and are a little newer and again unused so far. The wolf pack I found in a market night but it had already been sold so as I was sobbing into my pillow at having missed out the lovely owner of Crimson Moon said she was happy to make another set. This of course made my day and I had two more beauties to add to my collection.

For both of these sellers you get a fantastic quality pad, very thin and flexible but stiff enough that they don’t move around too much. The customer service of both ladies can’t be faulted and they are very quick to respond so please get in touch with them if there’s anything I’ve missed out. Or send me a message and I’ll answer as best I can.

I have been told that I should mention the fabrics that my pads are made from a little more in my reviews but I don’t really find much difference so far. It might become more of a factor for me as I get used to cloth but so far, Jersey, Cotton or a mix of the two doesn’t register and so I don’t note down what the pad topper is. I will try and make notes of this for future reviews though!

Here are the links for the different sites that I know of so that you can all get your hands on some of these lovelies!

Huggally Wuggally review

On to a review of the store Huggally Wuggally. This store has quickly become one of my favourites. They are based in the UK and have some absolutely gorgeous stock. Every time I see that they’re having a Market Night on their Facebook group, I pretty much rearrange my life and make sure I’m sat ready and waiting to buy all the goodies that I can. Everything is handmade and really good quality. The customer service is brilliant and the owner is one of the nicest people. I’ll be buying more from them in future.

My first purchase was for two pads and two face cloths. Initially I missed out on the perfect Unicorn pad that I had to have but the owner kindly made one up for me. I love this pad! Both the unicorn and the Harry Potter pad are Minky topped and the softest pads I own. The Unicorn pad is a heavy pad but still nice and thin, the bit of bulk that it does have just makes me feel a bit more secure if I’m being completely honest. It’s 10.5” long and is fleece backed. The fleece grips my undies really nicely so the pad doesn’t move around at all, the same for the Harry Potter one. I paid £9.50 for the Unicorn pad as it is a longer pad and for a heavy cycle, so more material was used to make it.

The Harry Potter pad is 10” and a Moderate, it’s the one I keep in my bag for the ‘just in case’ moments. It’s also the one I show to anyone and everyone that will listen to me talk about cloth pads (if your one of these people, I hope you’ve now bought your own!) I’m in love with them both. My only negative is that the Harry Potter pad has a lot of white fabric exposed, and whilst I’m not squeamish, I always worry that it’ll stain (so far it hasn’t) it’s a small downside and I would buy a hundred of these pads if I could afford it. This pad was £7.25

I would love if I could get some more of her pads in a smaller size, as I’ve found 8-9” suits me a little better. These two pads are still the pride of my collection so far though.DSCF2348

Ok, on to the two little cloth wipes. I’ll be honest and tell you all that I only bought these initially because I didn’t want to pass up on the cute Harry Potter prints. The Espresso Patrunum one in particular made me chuckle. I have them both as flannels and have only used one so far as I’m really saving them to brighten up my bathroom when I get back to University. They work perfectly as little face cloths though when I clean my face in an evening. They could also be used as back up toilet roll apparently. So might be an idea to keep one in a handbag for those annoying public bathrooms that never have any toilet paper handy. I’m not a fan of this idea though so I’ll stick to face cloths. These were around £2 each if I remember right, may have cheaper, somewhere between £1-2 but I can’t find my original invoice.

Finally, my newest purchase is my first pair of Scrundies. Non elastic underwear that are now becoming my period pants. Something to take the pressure off of my stomach as even the slight elastic from my pants makes my stomach feel worse. I haven’t been able to wear these for a cycle day just yet but I have worn them to try on and they fit perfectly. I bought these in a Market Night and they were here about a week later which was impressive considering they had to be made in my size (Small). I love them, and I have the pad to match so I’m in Unicorn heaven. These were £12 and I think £1.50 postage.IMG_1320

These are just the items that I’ve purchased, she also makes cloth nappies and children’s clothes as well as a range of adult clothes as well. If you like your funky leggings then this is a shop for you to take a look at. I just wish I had more money in order to keep buying more from her.

I can’t recommend this store enough. Please check them out on Facebook! They are fantastic, and so comfy! Especially if you’re just starting out! The Facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/huggallywuggally/
