FanU Review : Good for hot flushes!!

FANU Review

I was asked to try out the Fanu which is a hand held battery run fan aimed at supporting people who have hot flushes as a side effect of chemotherapy. It has been designed by someone who has gone through Chemo so knows how the hot flushes can affect day to day life.

I love how the website says “it is not always possible to strip off and sip a glass of ice water” it makes me just think of when I was going through Hot Flashes sitting there part naked eating ice cream I was at home so no one could see me but I totally get the concept of this fan. There is nothing worse than being out in public having a hot flush and people looking at you as though you are crazy trying to cool yourself down especially if you are at a young age. If its someone in there 50s the common thought would be bless her she is going through menopause but its a bit of a unknown that chemo can bring on early menopause for younger girls.

The FANU arrived in a lovely box with a gift of some mini marshmallows. I thought was a really perfect touch. If you are going through chemotherapy and you need to order things such as this to get a little hidden extra really means a lot

The handheld fan is definitely a lot more quieter than I was expecting. I like way it feels and it actually looks quite trendy you could get it out at any time in any place and people are not going to stare. You can use it inside or outside to be honest I got more from using it inside but that was my personal preference. I keep it by my bedside as it is at night when I have the most hot flushes.

It costs £9.99 including the mini lithium battery USB cable and a lanyard, which I think is excellent value for money as it will help people you are going through hot flashes due to chemotherapy or the menopause.

It is also suitable for people maybe going on holiday who will be around the pool or on a beach in the hot sun. A fellow blogger tried the fan as she is a little apprehensive of flying and liked to have cool air pointed on her face during the flight, some airlines now dont have overhand air vents so this is another great reason to use this handheld fan.

It’s not overly powerful that it’s going to blow your head off but to be honest I’ve not seen anything on the market, this small and lightweight wth is any more powerful and I have tried a few which have been total rubbish feeling like a little robin is blowing a bit of air in your face this at least has a bit of oomph. This would make a perfect gift for somebody going through chemotherapy.
