Riley: A Review of the Organic Period Care Brand

*There are PR items from Riley in this post. See the end of the post for more details. 


I like to use organic and sustainable period products for period and menstrual cycle care. When I think about the toxins and chemicals found in some mainstream period care products, it makes me shudder. As the area is a very intimate and sensitive area for women, we must take care of it and use safe, organic products during our menstrual cycles. This is where Riley comes in.

Riley believes that our vaginas deserve the best - and they're absolutely right! They are also on a mission to end plastic use in period products and have created products which are sustainable, organic and plastic-free. 


Riley has created a period subscription box, meaning we women don't need to go panic-looking for a tampon or pad when our period starts. Riley will also allow you to cancel and/or re-activate your subscription, skip a delivery or change the date of your delivery whenever you need to. For someone who sometimes has fluctuating periods, this is a perfect option for me. 

So, what period products does Riley sell? 

Riley sells standard period products - tampons, pads, pantyliners and even a probiotic supplement. All products are organic, sustainable and plastic-free.

How does Riley's subscription box work?

Building a period box on Riley is super easy. Firstly, you choose whether you would like your delivery to be every 3 or 6 months. You then choose the period products that you prefer to use during your menstrual cycle. Then all you simply have to do is pay. So easy and fuss-free! 

If you're a Mum/Dad/Guardian of a girl who has just started her period, you can buy a 'My First Period Bundle' from Riley's website! Something I wish I could have had the option to buy when I first started my period. The bundle comes with two daytime pads, two nighttime pads, 4 sets of different tampons, a mini canvas storage pouch for your products and even a pair of socks! Such a brilliant idea and one I think I'd love to see rolled out in primary schools/comprehensive schools for older girls. 

What products have I tried from Riley?

When Riley got in contact with me about their brand, I wanted to try their pantyliners and their probiotic supplement

The winged pantyliners come in pretty recyclable packaging and are made from 100% certified organic cotton. They are perfect for lighter-flow days or if you would some daily protection. The pantyliners are also biodegradable, toxin-free and comfortable to wear. I think there is a stigma when it comes to pantyliners or pads for being too bulky or uncomfortable to wear. But I find them just the opposite. It's just about buying the ones that are the perfect size for you.

The probiotic supplement has a blend of ingredients that include 10 diverse probiotic strains that promote vaginal health. These probiotics are nutritionist-approved and vegan. Ask your doctor's permission before using these if you are taking any other medication. I have noticed a difference in terms of my gut health when taking these probiotics.

Would I recommend Riley? 

I definitely would!

I love everything that Riley stands for with their products. Their products are of amazing quality! I love how sustainable and organic their products are too! The women who created Riley have done the most incredible job in making the brand what it is today!

  3. I love the subscription box element to Riley - It makes so much sense and will stop so many people from getting caught short. I wish things like this were available too when I was younger. I'm glad to see things changing though!

  6. This looks like an awesome alternative to regular pads and tampons. I couldn't get into those other things. The panty and the cup just seem so messy. I'm pretty sure I'm nearing the end of my cycles. But, my daughter is 9 so I'm sure she will be needing something like this in a few years. Thank you for sharing!

  11. I love the subscription idea - definitely handy rather than panic buying (or using what you can get hold off in a rush!). Do you find that they are absorbable enough? I have a specific brand in specific size that I use - I'd love to move to greener options but the one I tried just didn't absorb well enough.

  20. Thanks for sharing, I use the own supermarket brands as they tend be cheaper in the long run than having a subscription box, but these look interesting idea if they were a little more affordable :)
