As a member of Crowdtap, I recently had the opportunity to participate in a U By Kotex Sample and Share activity!
I was sent two adorable U by Kotex zipper tins, one for me and one for a friend! Each tin included:
– 2 liners
– 2 tampons
– GenKnow bracelet
I thought the zipper tins were very cute, and I loved the colors. I thought the bright colors paired nicely against the greater black background, and although there was definitely a sense of “femininity”, it wasn’t overly “girly” or “frilly”. The tin itself would make a nice travel pack where you could store other toiletries besides just the items for that “time of the month”!
I shared the other sample tin with my coworker Anna, since she is around the same age as me so she probably has the same “needs” as me! 😉 I also thought she’d like to learn about and try out U by Kotex, and who wouldn’t want a cute zipper tin! 😀
Anna was a bit embarrassed, and we both laughed about the sample share good naturedly. But I think that sort of highlights how much we DO need to raise “period awareness” in our society. It’s true that the menstrual cycle has been a bit of a “taboo” subject for many years, but it’s an important topic that women should feel comfortable discussing nowadays. It’s a natural human/female process that we shouldn’t be ashamed or embarrassed of! That’s why I particularly applaud U by Kotex’s campaign goal to increase awareness and acceptance among women regarding our periods.
Included in the tins were a GenKnow bracelet with a nice “I Know” silver trinket strung on threads made up of the U by Kotex colors. The “meaning” behind this bracelet is to proclaim our “pride” as women and going against the outdated notions of “staying silent” about our periods. It’s a testament to our increasing acceptance of ourselves and our openness to sharing truth and knowledge about our bodies!
Overall, I found the U by Kotex Sample and Share to be a fun and empowering opportunity, and my coworker whom I shared with also enjoyed it very much.
So thank you once again, U by Kotex and Crowdtap, for this opportunity to receive and try out U by Kotex products!
