Warrior Queen Confidence + Free Sample

Thanks to U by Kotex® Pads for sponsoring today's discussion
When I was in Vegas a few weeks ago, I experienced something that is one of every girl's nightmares. Vegas is usually a time for confidence and sexiness and the skimpier clothing, the better. I left for the weekend excited and ecstatic and all around ready for a Vegas trip...for hours spent at the pool, only to realize in the car ride over that it was that weekend. You know what weekend I'm talking about. The one weekend a month when I dread having to go to a pool...or in this worst case situation, share a hotel room with someone other than my husband.

Of course, I got my period while we were sharing a hotel room with Iman's friend. All I could think about was how excited I was to spend the weekend in the pool, until my cramps started as we drove to Vegas and I felt such a sinking feeling.



I wasn't just worried about my undies, I was worried about everything. Ever since I went off birth control, my periods have become less predictable. Note to everyone else, don't decide to end your birth control mid week so you start your period on the weekend. Worst decision, EVER.

Until, U by Kotex came into my life, that is.

It feels like my periods been getting progressively worse and my confidence has definitely wavered around this time of the month. I wasn't ever one to rock white while on my period, or rock the tampons. I've always been more of a pad person. Normally confident and bubbly me, was finding more reasons to stay inside during that weekend a month.



I'm totally going undie shopping this weekend  and I am feeling confident enough to buy some sexy new undies to wear at any time of the month. U by Kotex definitely saves my undies.

When I was in Vegas, I felt comfortable enough to sleep in pajama shorts, while sharing a room with a guy that is not my husband. And it worked. The 3-D Core technology is amazing. I didn't realize that a pad could feel so comfortable and be so effective. I had written my period weeks off to being uncomfortable and lacking confidence.

I remember the days when I didn't get my period (gotta love Implanon - it's the best form of birth control!) but when the dosage started running out and I went back onto Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo my period got worse. Then I went off birth control and they got worse, again.

None of that seems to matter now that I've got U by Kotex. I guarantee you can feel the same way as me, too. Many of my friends aren't tampon girls, but they wear them because they feel weird wearing pads. I shared my little secret with them (in the form of these wonderful FREE samples) and they are just as excited as me.



Even if you're a tampon girl, U by Kotex has got you covered. Sometimes a pad is more comfortable at night (so you don't have to worry about TSS, amiright?).

So on those days when my confidence is subpar - U by Kotex is by my side, and they'll be right there with you, too.

    I love these for night even though I swear by tampons. Sometimes a girl just needs a pad.

  2. I hate when things like that happen. It is the worse.

  3. U by Kotex is my favorite brand for tampons. I don't usually use pads unless I'm going to bed, but U by Kotex has easily become my favorite over the years. It's so comfortable! The same thing actually happened to me when I went to New Orleans. It came while I was on the road. So tragic. Sometimes it's just so hard being a girl!

  4. U by Kotex is definitely my favorite brand EVER. I hate pads because I feel like I'm wearing a diaper, but sometimes my periods are so heavy that I have to use a panty liner, and they are my favorite. I actually think I've worn one of their pads once and it wasn't so bad. But yes, I highly recommend this brand to anyone and everyone who has ever had to deal with a messy period.

  5. That's the brand I use for tampons. Good to know about! I always manage to get mine 1.) on weeks when I deciding I'm going to get serious about eating healthy and/or 2.) when I'm headed out of town. It never fails.

  6. It is literally the worst when that happens on vacation! I always hate wearing a pad because it feels like I am wearing a diaper, but this is a good brand.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yay! I'm glad you love them, too!! Pads are just allow you to do so much more while sleeping.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes! It was totally okay though :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. It is so inconvenient sometimes!! I am trying to get more into tampons, they just never feel comfortable for me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, these definitely don't feel like a diaper - that is the worst feeling!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. You sound just like me! It's like without fail, your body says it's time to be inconvenient!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I hate when it feels like a diaper. These definitely did not feel like a diaper to me!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The. Worst. When I was on bc, I would manipulate it so I could get my period only when I wanted. These days it's SO wonky, and it's driving me nuts. Glad it didn't interfere too much with your trip!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've never been on birth control, but my periods are always terrible! I'll have to try these; maybe they'll help me too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hate it when it's on vacation - that's the worst. I'm definitely going to have to try these out, thanks for the tip!

  16. I had the WORST luck this year. I got it the day of my senior prom, the day of my graduation...I'm just hoping it will hold off for College move in day!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This brand is actually the only brand of tampons I've ever used that are actually comfortable. The other ones have weird wings or something that push in all the wrong places, but ever since I tried U by Kotex, I thought they were perfect! I can't use any other brand now.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I buy U by Kotex every time, I'm totally suckered in by their pretty packaging haha. I'm on ortho tri cyclen lo too and my periods are pretty normal, thank god. I HATE when it's timed for like, the one important weekend of the month though. That always seems to happen!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I did that when we were on our honeymoon!! Wonky periods suck, I am so happy it didn't interfere with my trip though :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope they help you!!! Birth control does wonders at regulating periods, too

    ReplyDelete
  21. You're welcome!!! It really is the worst

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh gosh, that is absolutely horrible!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It always happens! U by Kotex is awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have never loved that time of the month. I always suffer but I do love me some cool pads that are comfy

    ReplyDelete
  25. It always seems to happen at the lest convenient time. Haha! And I hate when it's a surprise, like -uhhh weren't you here just three weeks ago?!

    ReplyDelete
  26. ugh, that is the absolute worst!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. These are always a lifesaver. I have had good results with the NuvaRing and my DivaCup.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is the worst when it hits you randomly! I have tried apps to help determine when I might get my next one and it has been helping a lot! But I just switched my birth control to the Ortho Tri-Cyclon and I am hoping it helps me out a bit more! As for pads, I have never been a fan of them because I just feel so uncomfortable in them! Sometimes I like to double protect the undies and wear them though!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is the worst! I am so worried about when I go off birth control because I love having scheduled periods! I never get it on the weekends:)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I know exactly what you're talking about- I went off my birth control a few months ago, and my periods have been getting worse and worse every month! I definitely love U by Kotex though :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. One of the things I loved most about being pregnant no time of the month and no little surprises, love kotex products :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would honestly consider going on birth control solely to prevent getting my period each month!! I always feel like someone is trying to remove my ovaries and have no desire to do anything for a good few days :/


    Great post Raewyn! Which these samples were available world wide :( x

    ReplyDelete
  33. Haha I LOVE THIS - I hate when fun trips happen to fall on.. that weekend. I'm definitely requesting a sample, the packaging looks so fun!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I do love that companies are trying to make packaging of pads and tampons cute.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've never used birth control but mine has been unpredictable with breastfeeding. Always good to be prepared!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ugh, I tried going off the pill and it was a bad idea. My old period problems were back and it was a nightmare.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ohh, I have never had a DivaCup, isn't really as good as the reviews say? Tampons feel uncomfortable, how do I not feel the Diva Cup?

    ReplyDelete
  38. The U By Kotex panty liner would be perfect for double protection!! I love using the P Tracker app. It is pretty accurate with me, I just forgot it was going to happen while we were gone when we booked the room with another person! haha

    ReplyDelete
  39. haha, I used to never get my period on the weekends either! But, luckily, I still have regular periods.

    ReplyDelete
  40. ugh, I am hoping it normalizes for the both of us!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. hahaha, I might get pregnant soon!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ouch! You poor lady!! I'm sorry they aren't available worldwide! Maybe you can find them at a local store, or amazon?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yay! I hope you like the sample! I got mine through another blogger and was really excited when they asked me to share it with my readers.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Me too! And their commercials are so awesome

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh that is definitely something I never thought of!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh no! That is the worst :/ I was lucky enough to never have major problems and only went on birth control to prevent pregnancy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That would definitely be my kind of luck! These Kotex pads sound great - I'm going to go get a sample to try them out.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Look at that packaging. Definitely make it's cuter. I'll have to check them out

    ReplyDelete
  49. The cuteness of the pads makes periods slightly more bearable! I like the tampon packaging too!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love you U by Kotex! my favorite brand!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Periods suck! Lol...


    Definitely going to look at local stores :) I WILL find it!!! I will make it my mission. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wonderful!! I hope you like them as much as I do!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. :) yes, the packaging is much better than others, but the pads themselves are actually amazingly comfortable

    ReplyDelete
  54. hahaha right??? it makes everything a little better!

    ReplyDelete
  55. yay! They have quickly become mine too!
