In the clip, Alex can be seen wearing the grey bear pouch around her stomach to help ease her period pain.

She tells her followers: "On this episode of things Alex bought from Amazon that she didn't really need but she definitely did need: A hot water bottle pouch.

"Look how cute this is! £14 pounds for a mini hot water bottle and the pouch which you can strap anywhere - if you've got back pain, strap it to your back.

"I've got cramps, so I've strapped it here and my hands are free, can eat my pasta and it came with two hot water bottle cases as well.

"You're telling me that I've been shoving them in my pj trousers forever and these exist,” said one person.

Someone else commented: "That's going STRAIGHT in my basket."

“Purchased in 10 seconds 😂,” said another, while a fourth wrote: “Having endometriosis for YEARS and I'm only now seeing one of these 😭😭😭 thank you for sharing this ❤️.”
