Thank you, U by Kotex, for making this post possible.
When that time of the month rolls around I am not a pleasant person to be around. I am cranky, tired, irritated, short-tempered… I could go on. I thought about the things that make my life a little easier during this time and I summed it all up in this Menstrual Survivor Kit. The things I included solve all of my menstruation grievances. So, here goes…
First and foremost, that “time of the month” is incredibly challenging. Since I had my second child, my periods went from short and light to LONG AND HEAVY. I have had to rethink my whole game plan. Thanks to U by Kotex and their new Clean Wear pads with 3D Capture Core, I have been able to save countless pairs of undies from being ruined by a heavier flow. In case you are wondering, U by Kotex® Ultra Thin Pads with 3D Capture Core*, a one-of-a-kind center that locks away wetness to help stop leaks. Now available in our Cleanwear® pads, AllNighter® pads and Security* pads.

The next important thing to have on hand is ice cream. My personal favorite is Magnum Double Caramel Ice Cream Bars. They are the most delicious ooey gooey perfection you have ever put in your mouth. There are two thick chocolate layers with smooth caramel sandwiched in-between. The center is a yummy vanilla ice cream. Mmmm… I am going to have one now.
Softlips The Cube is a fantastic lip balm. I find that I get slightly dehydrated during my period and my lips get super dry. I always keep a good lip balm on hand.
I need caffeine to get me through my day so I drink a good bit of tea to keep me going. One thing I love about tea bags is that after you use them to make your tea, you can sit the tea bag on your under eye area to treat puffiness and dark circles! Win, win!
I also require a lot of “me time” during my periods, so curling up on the sofa with my hair in a ponytail and wearing the rattiest pair of sweatpants I own is standard. While I am relaxing I catch up on the magazines that have been piling up all month. I am loving getting the latest gossip from People magazine.
And last but not least… I love candles. Aromatherapy is a real thing people! There is something relaxing about turning down the lights enjoying the subtle glowing flicker of a candle. This one is actually from Jewelmint and has a surprise hidden inside.
