As a female, there are so many things that we have to deal with: constant scrutiny of our looks, the glass ceiling, and PERIODS.
I remember in elementary/middle school wishing that I had gotten my period because all my friends were getting it and it was one of the signs of becoming a woman. When I finally got it myself, I have no idea what I was thinking, wishing for it!
As women, we are always trying to find ways to soothe ourselves and make things a little easier for us during our periods because it's tough dealing with cravings, random emotions, and well, you know, all at once!
That's where PMS.com (or the Tampon Fairies, as they like to call themselves), come in!
PMS.com is a period prep subscription box that just recently launched that ships you the essentials to make your time of the month as easy and smooth as possible. The box is meant to come to your rescue for those days when you forget to buy some tampons or suddenly have terrible menstrual cramps.
Each box comes with three things: A box smooth slidey tampons (there are 15), Tutu Towels (15 feminine wipes), and PMS pain relief (16 ibuprofen tablets).
When it was my time of the month, I had the opportunity to try each of the products to see what made these "Tampon Fairies" so good.
The tampons are wrapped in a bright yellow packaging, easy to spot when scrounging around for it in your bag. It works just as well as any other tampon that you could get in-store, and I was able to get away with wearing just a liner with this (I normally wear pads with tampons for possible leakage).
My favorite of everything in this box were the Tutu Towels, or feminine wipes. I usually am never able to get any for myself, so having these on hand when I needed them was very refreshing and made me feel so clean. They're unscented too, perfect for anyone who may be allergic to scented wipes! I also like the packaging because it was small enough to be easy to carry around in your bag.
The wipes themselves don't look any special, but I decided to take a picture for you in case you've never seen/used them before. [:
And finally, there were the ibuprofen tablets. They work just as fine as any ibuprofen tablets, but the packaging makes you feel cool because you can't get these specific ones anywhere else. I took a couple for my headache and cramps and soon enough I was feeling fine again.
Besides, if you're on the fence, PMS is giving out their first boxes for FREE! That's right, you can get your first PMS box for free, and only pay for shipping, which is only $2.99 anyway. Seriously, you have no reason to say no now. What are you waiting for? Your time of the month will be here again before you know it!
Follow the Tampon Fairies wherever you go for more updates and ways to cope with your time of the month:
