Back to School Beauty Essentials ( U by Kotex)

Hello lovelies!
I recently started back to school, and man, has it been hectic! 
I'm constantly on the go throughout my day. Rushing from class to class with only a ten minute gap in between each course (don't you hate those classes). 

To make matters worse, "that time of month" always seems to fall upon your most busiest week (school, vacation, road trips, etc.)

Today I want to share some of my must have products for the school year.

I always keep my beauty bag on hand either in my car or purse. I try to stick with the basics so my bag isn't overloaded with stuff, only the products I truly need. A lot of the times, this is where I'll whip out my travel size/sample products I've received from subscription services or online purchases. 

My "travel" beauty bag consists of:
  • Compact Foundation
  • Blush/Bronzer Duo (super handy for travel)
  • Any Mini Mascara
  • Eye Shadow with Applicator 
  • Gloss
  • Moisturizer
  • Emergency Feminine Products

Like I mentioned at the top, the burden of Mother Nature came calling on the first week of my classes. Luckily, I was able to try the new "U" by Kotex CleanWear pads to see what all the fuss has been about (you can to if you click here!)

First of all, the print is so feminine and girly. I love the paisley print and vibrant colors. I mean, I know I'm not going to be whipping out my feminine products during class for others to admire the pretty color and print, but I appreciate a cute wrapper, okay?!

I was surprisingly pleased at how comfortable the "U" line is! You literally don't even notice them - light and form fitting, no diaper feeling going on here! Comfort and protection should not be two things you have to compromise on when finding the right feminine product. The innovative design of these pads will give you both!

Oh, and while you're in the midst of drinking a refreshing Coke Zero (like I currently am) , don't forget to read the "Myth or Fact" section on your box for a good ole' slap in the face / advice column ;)
Must. Have. Caffeine. Mother Nature may get the best of me but she can't have my caffeine!!!!

 More deets on these life saving gems:

  • A seriously flexible pad with MemoryFlex core that moves with your body
  • Wings help prevent bunching and scrunching
  • An ultra-flexible 4-layer absorbency system that’s got you covered *They're not kiddin'*
  • Available in Regular, Heavy Flow and Overnight absorbencies
Not a fan of pads? The "U" by Kotex line comes in all forms to fit your preference! 

So, I could blab on over and over again about how awesome these things worked for me AND got me through my busy first week of school, but I think you should try them for yourself.

Don't forget, Kotex is offering FREE samples of their "U" line to all readers! Get your FREE sample here.

Until next time...
