60 Second Beauty Tip: Buy Cuter Feminine Products

OK, look. I know this is the subject no one likes to talk about but we really must. How many times have you tried to discreetly wrangle a tampon or pad out of your purse at work or out at night to have one of the following horrors happen:

  • While digging, every tampon in your makeup bag comes flying out of your handbag like a can of snakes from a novelty shop.
  • You realize that you can’t find it because you don’t remember where you put it and there’s no chance of finding it without a mining helmet and a map.
  • You try to discreetly slide the item into your hand/up your sleeve so no one sees it but it drops out and hits the floor, announcing your period to everyone in sight.

This is why I’m a convert. Moving forward, I’m handling my periods with Moxie.

These 100% recyclable feminine hygiene products come in the most adorable 1930’s-esque girlie packaging as “boudoir boxes” in adorable colors complete with a little black bow. Their Slenders Pads ($6.49 for 10) are for regular days and their accompanying Slenders Panty Liners ($5.99 for 24) come in pretty pink and peach-striped packaging respectively, each with a color-coded tin to carry them discreetly in your handbag or to stash at your desk. Sleepovers Pads ($6.49 for 10) are in gorgeous turquoise-striped packaging and are for overnight use. For everyday use between periods, the Scanty Panty Liners ($4.99 for 24) will help you feel a little fresher and come with their own brilliant carrying tin.

My favorite part? The wrapping makes very little noise so it doesn’t sound like you’re unwrapping a Christmas gift in a public stall. Genius!

Coming very soon: tampons with the same cute carrying tin! I die. Moxie is currently sold exclusively through Duane Reade and DuaneReade.com

Look, your period is a fact of life, so you might as well have a little fun when it makes its monthly appearance. Cute packaging, amazing absorption and discreet carrying cases make it even easier to handle that time of the month with a little Moxie.
