With school just around the corner, with it comes an array of emotions for all students. This is especially true for girls entering elementary school and especially high school.
I still have a memory of my first day of high school. It was exciting and scary all at once but what made it a little more nerve-racking for me was the fact that Aunt Flo decided to join the start of school party and I was not too pleased about it. I was constantly asking my friend to do “the bottom check” while we strolled down the hallway, and back then, the tampons available were massive. Sneaking out to the washroom during class required some serious ninja skills to ensure nobody spotted the tiny log I was carrying around. Good times!
The thought of smaller, compact tampons sounds extremely convenient but what about the protection? Especially when Aunt Flo is a little extra moody that month? With summer here, cancelling beach or pool outings because of your period just doesn’t sounds like fun. We need to enjoy all the gorgeous summer days we can before Pumpkin Spice latte’s, right?
Small but Mighty Protection
This August, Playtex Sport launched its newest product, Playtex® Sport® Compact. The new product will be available exclusively at Shopper’s Drug Mart. These pocket-sized tampons may be tiny, but they are mighty!
Playtex® Sport® Compact tampons are the newest compact from the #1 athletic tampon brand. They’re discreetly pocket-sized, 30% smaller than the Playtex® Sport® full-size tampons (based on length before extension), but offer the same 360° Sport Level Protection®. It’s a great way to protect from leaks during all activities—whether it’s soccer, dance, gymnastics, basketball, or just hanging around with friends.
This is perfect and just what we needed for our active lifestyles! I know aside from swimming, working out at the gym during that time of month caused me to worry about leaks, but I can assure you I had no issues, even after 35 minutes on a treadmill. During extremely heavy months, I always used Playtex liners along with the tampon (just to be on the safe side)!
What sort of activities do you or your daughter have where the new Playtex® Sport® Compact tampons would come in very handy? Do you have your own Aunt Flo horror moments from the past?
