Some things about being a woman are great. But for many of us our menstrual cycle isn’t. Truth is truth. I remember when I started my period my mother presented me with a belt that was made to hold this HUGE diaper like thing that was a pad. Growing up for her was way different than it was for me or even today’s girls. Luckily I had a friend who saved me from the dreaded pad belt from hades. My mom was in awe of the small size of the pads then that came with self adhesive backing. Times they have changed, but our periods are still here. With it so have the options for women in what to use during that time of the month, when the last thing we want to worry with is did we accidentally move wrong and now we need a wardrobe change.
While packaging has gotten smaller and more discreet there was still something lacking in enabling us to not be as obvious when we were on our monthly cycle. Enter Always and Tampax with the Radiant collection. An assortment of panty liners, pads and tampons that look anything like your run of the mill protection. A small bag is part of the package, small enough to pass as simply a makeup bag, now you can run to the ladies room anywhere and not worry about someone knowing why you are going. The bag is large enough to hold any size protection from tampon to larger pad, for those of us who don’t just bleed we are pretty sure we should need a transfusion afterwards.
I have spent years going through all the options for feminine protection and I can honestly say that Always have been my go to choice since they came out. With their flexi wings and ability to stay put and protect without bunching up. I also have super sensitive skin, so any constant irritation can lead to another week of pain and uncomfortableness from the rash that can follow from other pad brands. I have never had that issue with their products. From the pantiliners to the overnights, they keep me protected and treat my skin like a baby.
We all know our period is never going to be the rainbows and unicorns some would suggest it should be, but Tampax and Always have certainly enabled us to breath a little easier when it comes to our protection.
