A popular beauty pill, called “beauty powder,” is now a hot trend among Virginians who have had their periods.
article “We thought the powder would do wonders,” says Mary Ann Miller, a 28-year-old accountant.
She started using it when she had her third period, in June.
“But then, within a few days, my periods started to get worse and worse, so I stopped taking it.”
Miller says she had never experienced periods before and never stopped using it.
Miller says her period was so bad that she couldn’t even see her own reflection in the mirror.
“I was having so many symptoms,” she says.
“It was like I couldn’t breathe.”
Miller also had recurring headaches, which she describes as “a little bit like a pain in the neck.”
Miller was initially reluctant to give birth, but then decided she wanted to give it another try.
“We were going to try it,” she recalls.
“They were so good at keeping my period down,” she adds. “
“The way they kept it down was just like a very gentle, gentle way.” “

“The way they kept it down was just like a very gentle, gentle way.”
A few months after the pill was introduced, Miller’s period returned, and she decided to try out the same brand of the pills.
“When I was first using the pill, I couldn´t even feel the pills,” Miller says.
Her periods “were a little bit heavier than I had ever felt before, and it was like they were on steroids,” she said.
“Every month or two, I would have periods again.”
Miller has since had a second cycle.
She says she also noticed that the pills have less “sugar” than the real deal.
But she still doesn’t like them.
“A lot of people think that it’s like the best pill out there, but I don’t feel like it is,” she admits.
“And it is not like I feel like I have periods.”
The pill is a “little bit more expensive than the regular pill,” says Miller.
The average price of a “beautiful pill” is around $40.
The “beauties” range is $40 to $60, but there are some cheaper brands available, such as “grape oil” for $15, or “coconut oil” which costs $10 to $15.
Miller doesn’t use any other products, such like lotions or creams.
But Miller says that if she needed to, she could use a “garden spray” to help manage her period.
She adds that she would not want to use a regular “beautys” pill “unless I was really in the mood.”
“I don’t really feel like any of these things are a miracle pill,” Miller tells Newsweek.
“There is nothing magic about it.”
