iClean – Review
My iClean came with no box, a little instruction leaflet and a really poor excuse for a pouch – one of those organza bags you usually find jewellery or something like that put into. Not really suitable for a menstrual cup pouch – but these are very cheap cups, so you can’t expect much.
The holes weren’t punched through as neatly as other cups, with some displaced silicone on the outside and inside of the cup.
I got this one in the small size, so that I could see what it was like compared to the large Aneer I bought – since they look identical. In look and feel, they do seem to be in the same silicone and basically from the same mold. The only difference I can see is that the Aneer stem is slightly more rounded on the very end, and has a slight more of a lean to it.
I thought that this cup, being small, would be able to open up (since I had trouble with the large Aneer opening up), but I did have trouble with it too. I did only try it once,so things could be different if I tried it again, but I fiddled around for a few moments trying to get it to open and it didn’t. So I think it’s just too soft for me.
I know I’m supposed to be impartial and give all cups a go, but I don’t really trust the safety of the silicone of the ultra-cheap cups, so I really got it only for visual comparisons, and so that I had one of this brand for my collection – rather than to actually test the cup out by wearing it.
