Menstrual Cups

cerene cerene2

Country: Unknown (NZ? though likely made in China)
Composition: “FDA grade Silicone”
Sizes:  “A” (small), “B” (large)
Dimensions:
Capacity: Unknown
Stem: ?  One shows what looks like a flat tab, the other looks like a short solid.
Measuring Lines: Unknown
Cost (RRP):  Unknown
Guarantee: Satisfaction Guarantee
Been around since:  End of Sept 2014
Unique Design?: No (There are other cups with similar designs available)
Other Details: No official website found.  The only 2 references I’ve found to buy them online are from Amazon, which had 2 listings for 2 different looking cups (both examples of cheap Chinese Rebranded cups).

The Blue cup listing, which as you can see from the screen shot below, and the photo above, used to have a “Cerene” logo on the product photo, but is now being sold as a “Continuon”.

The green cup listing didn’t have that logo, and is a different shaped cup, but used the “Cerene” name in the product title.

Listing #1 (green) – http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MVRMUCQ
Listing #2 (blue) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00R5AF89G

There is a review with photos on Amazon, which shows the cup they bought as the blue “Cerene” that was actually an iCare cup – which proves this “Cerene” / “Continuon” isn’t a brand of cup, but rather a rebranding of the iCare cups.

The Green cup listing lists “Cerene” as the seller.

A couple of the articles mentioned the contact details for the woman behind the company “Cerene” (heartfeltdryerballs.com), which is a New Zealand business.

  1. FYI if you look at the first review for the blue, long-stemmed one…she posted pictures of what she got, and what she got was a turquoise iCare, complete with the iCare bag. So Cerene may just be a reseller of Chinese cups. I do like my iCare and all but I can also get it for 5 bucks on Ali Express…

  2. Thanks for posting about these. It was me who brought them up at one point. I’m a New Zealander and googled one day and these came up. Was curious about them. Won’t be giving them a try.

  3. I notice that one of the Amazon listings that previously called itself a “Cerene” but one of the reviews showed an “iCare cup” – is actually now calling itself “Continuon” instead of “Cerene” – but it is the same link to the one I saw being called “Cerene”

  4. did you actually purchase this cup or are you just warning people? i bought this cup as my first, but i need a firmer one and i hope you can compare it to a well known brand.. i have no idea how soft or firm this cup is, all i know is i need a firmer one, because mine wont open at all

  5. Not “Warning” – just informing people about all the cup brands I know of.

    And no, I don’t have one of these cups.
