If you know me, you know I adventure a lot. I love to get outside no matter the hour of day, time of year… or time of the month!
I don’t let anything stop me from enjoying the outdoors, especially Mother Nature When she does unavoidably come around I need period protection that can keep up with me and my busy lifestyle. No one needs a leak on a long hike!
While hiking or heading to waterfalls I need good protection! UV protection, wind and rain protection, bug protection, #hanger protection and, well, period leak protection. This is one of my favorite short hikes. It only takes 30 minutes but the view around sunrise is amazing. I always come prepared when I head on any of my adventures. I always bring water, a towel, apple chips or nuts, candy for my blood sugar (in case it goes low) an extra jacket, and heaven forbid Mother Nature interrupt a hike, I keep a safety stash of Pure and Clean tampons.
I’m a tampon gal myself and my loyalty lies with Tampax. Back in the day, I tried other brands, but none were quite as reliable. I need a tampon that I could trust at the top of a mountain or the bottom of the ocean and a product that moves with me, not against me. So that’s why I have been using Tampax since high school.
Recently, a lot of my girlfriends had talked about switching to alternative or simpler feminine hygiene products. So I was glad when Tampax, my faithful go-to came out with the NEW Pure and Clean line of tampons.
The Tampax Pure and Clean tampons are 100% cotton core, and are free of dyes, fragrances and chlorine bleaching. I want to be mindful about the ingredients I use in the products I choose – so these were right up my alley! Unique to Tampax as well, is a protective extra layer around each tampon, which is meant to reduce any cotton being left behind.
The applicator is composed of a translucent, 90% plant-based material. Again, yay for the environment! And like all Tampax products, Pure and Clean also has all the unique comfort and protection of the same fabulous Tampax I’ve trusted since high school, including widthwise expansion and a LeakGuard Braid for built-in back-up protection. Interesting fact, Tampax tampon expands horizontally which covers all my areas! This actually helps with better absorption and leak protection. This helps minimize the amount of tampons you use per cycle, so leaks don’t force you to make a quick change. But you’ll still want to change your tampon at least every 8 hours, to help reduce risk of TSS.
So simple ingredients from a brand I can trust? Check and check! Ill take it.
As a west coast girl that spends the better part of her days in the great outdoors or on an adventure, I like to know that I am supporting a brand every single month that is working on improving their environmental footprint, and that is using responsibly sourced US grown cotton.
You heard me correctly. That’s the same great protection,and responsibly made. This millenial is SOLD.
A huge thank you to the amazing Madison for these images. She is the best!
I was also super pumped to learn that Tampax and Always are the only Feminine Care brands in Smart Label! You can find everything you need to know about the products, including ingredients and sustainability by using the SmartLabel app, by going to smartlabel.org, or visiting the Tampax and Always brand pages.
FUN FACT: did you know that P&G created the Swiffer Wet Jet by combining an Always pad and Tide detergent together?!?!?!
Where is your next adventure? Thanks for following along on mine. 🙂
