Review – Si-Bell
One of the Si-bell cups came in a cotton bag, the other came in a silicone (I assume) bag. I have to say though, the silicone bag feels AWFUL! It’s just a disturbing type of feel to it, hard to explain but not nice to touch at all. It also picks up all manner of fluff and dust. I dropped it on the carpet by accident…. and lets just say…. I have 2 cats….. that pouch got very furry, I had to wash it off 😛
But anyway…. the cups are nice 🙂
They are indeed identical to ClariCup
Although Si-bell has slightly softer silicone
Testing it out
When I tested out the ClariCup I was really impressed with it, it was the first cup I’d tried with a thin “stick” stem that gave a good amount of grip. So since the ClariCup seems to have been made with the Si-bell cup mold, they are obviously the same in how they feel when worn. The smoothness of the outside of the cup makes for easy cleaning and comfortable insertion/removal. The stem is excellent, I can’t feel it at all when it is in, yet it also has great grip.
The Si-bell airholes are properly punched through, when ClariCup holes were a bit messy.
It has a white frosted look to the silicone. A “peachskin” type feel, it feels nice to touch.
I personally prefer a coloured cup to a clear one, because I don’t like the golden colour cups get and a colour is more fun to me….. and I prefer the slightly firmer silicone of the ClariCup – so since the Si-bell and the ClariCup are identical in design, I would choose ClariCup over Si-bell. But if you don’t like the blue colour of the ClariCup, then Si-bell would be the better choice, as it seems to be slightly better made. You’d probably want to get a new pouch for it though 🙂
