Last weekend, we had to help SC’s dad and stepmom move about an hour away from where they were living. So we spent a lot of time packing and dripping sweat and cleaning. But we also spent a lot of time in the car, driving loads of boxes and furniture back and forth. I thought that this was the perfect day to test out the new U by Kotex sample I got in the mail. I have a hard time finding a product that can work with me during that time of the months when inconvenient activities come up. And don’t they ALWAYS come up during that week?

Another issue that I have is finding a packaging that’s discreet enough when I have to be out and about. I don’t want to carry my purse with me to the bathroom in my soon-to-be in-law’s house. That’s a big red flag that I’m hiding something! So I want to be able to hide it in my hand or shove it in my pocket, especially with the heavier duty ones because they’re much bigger. With these (I got the super+), you can totally do that! They fit in the palm of your hand, but the applicator extends so they aren’t difficult to insert either.

So we put it to the test. I was even riding in my soon-to-be mother-in-law’s brand new Corvette, so I couldn’t be leaking on the seat!! Risky, I know! Fortunately for me, this worked out perfectly. I didn’t have any leaks. I was able to change them throughout the day without being inconspicuous. And they looked so pretty in the colorful packaging, too!

Here’s a little bit of information from Kotex about their product:

U by Kotex Click Tampons

Go from compact to full-sized protection in one easy move. When it clicks, it’s ready to insert. Perfect for when you want to carry a spare in your pocket.
  • Starts compact, but expands to full size with just one Click
  • The slim applicator features a smooth tip for easy, comfortable insertion
  • Comes with four fun, bold colored wrappers and applicators in every package

If you want to check these out for yourself, you can request a free sample from Kotex! And if you do get a sample or if you’ve tried U by Kotex before, be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.  Also, don’t forget to check out their twitter and Facebook pages to let Kotex know what you think!


Here’s me & our puppy CJ in the Corvette. Or as SC puts it: “My two girls on a road trip.” LOVE.

I wrote this review while participating in a content series through Clever Girls Collective on behalf of U by Kotex, and received products to facilitate my post and compensation for my time to participate.
