Another disclaimer… we’re going to be having some pretty open “girl talk” so if you’re a dude (or a girl who doesn’t want to get into girl talk) you can stop reading now. Don’t say I didn’t give you fair warning!
Life is busy. My life seems beyond busy lately. I hardly seem to know what day of the week it is, let alone what week of the month! I’m always on the go so when it comes to feminine products I need one that can keep up with me, not one I have to keep up with. Enter U by Kotex
I’ve actually been using U by Kotex products for a long time now. I remember when their commercials first came out and I literally was like “EXACTLY!” to the screen. I never got the whole blue liquid demo, the happy twirling lady on the beach, or better yet the lady wearing white pants or the white bikini. I mean let’s be real here… When that time comes regardless of the type of product I’m using I’m not all “Let me go do a backflip into the pool” and wearing white is joke for the mom of a 3 year old, regardless of what time of month (or year) it is.
Just like with any supplements or health care product I don’t want the fluff. I just want to know that it works. I don’t need a protein powder with M&M’s in it (Yes- they make that… seriously, worst.idea.ever) and I don’t need anything fancy in a tampon. I just need to know it’s going to work. Just do your job, k? Cause if you don’t “Ain’t no body got time fo that”
I spend a lot of time trying to keep up with this one. Life with a toddler and 2 dogs comes with a lot of “oopsies” so if I can avoiding any extra oopsies is especially important. I like that U by Kotex keeps me protected from that. Also, the “click” tampons are compact and easy to keep in your purse or take to the bathroom without causing a scene.
When I’m not chasing (and cleaning up after) a toddler, a bull dog, and a cocker spaniel I spend a lot of my time coaching and working out at CrossFit 70. I’m always in motion. If you’ve ever done CrossFit you know it takes all your mental energy. “Girl problems” are the last thing on my mind. With U by Kotex I’m able to focus on my workout and coaching and not have to worry about girl problems.
I wrote this review while participating in a content series through Clever Girls Collective on behalf of U by Kotex, and received products to facilitate my post and compensation for my time to participate.
