Feminine hygiene product care review

Yes, I doing my first review. Normally I'm queasy at the mention of any bodily fluids and I find it icky, even the word period makes me cringe but as I said I'm going to be reviewing stuff. This is the latest new stuff.

Feminine hygiene are a very personal choice

I only started using tampons a few years ago. When I first tried them a long time ago, I found them very uncomfortable and reverted back to using towels. However now I just whatever, and over the last few used have used them regularly.

The choice is very personal because I had an auntie who only used toilet roll. That was what she was comfortable with. She hated pads, towels or tampons and just rolled with her tissue paper. There is a technique she used to make it in a pad but that was her choice.

I also know people who would never use a pad or on the other hand a tampon. I use whatever I have at hand but for daytime I'd much rather use a tampon.

The New Tampax Compak Pearl

I didn't read the instructions thinking it would be like the normal Compak range so wasted one. So always read the instructions on how these new applicators work. Yuck. Pretty messy,  quick wash of hands then after reading the instructions I tried again.

Now this applicator works differently, yeah detail, read the instructions and you'll find you need to pull it out for the click.  The other compak range was pushing it until the click.

Detail again - when I discovered the how to use it, the application was very smooth but because of the other compak I was waiting to for click at the end which never came. So I wasn't sure but after I got used to it, it's find.

It absorbs in a different way and I'm not sold on that. So I guess it really depends on how you are built down there. Oh gosh, I can write explicit sex scenes but can't say the word. Oh...depends on the structure of your vagina.

So for me insertion was fine but taking it out was a wee bit uncomfortable because of how it absorbed. I much preferred the other compak and cheaper cardboard range.

Difference between all.

I don't mind the cardboard but at time it can get slippery with a few false tries. A friend of mine only used non-applicator lil-lets right from teen days. She wasn't into all this applicators business. I've never tried them, mostly because I get iky about all this and it would probably take a few tries.

Bedtime & towels/pad

For me that's strictly towels, I have never worn a tampon to bed. Regarding which towel,  again I'll probably say if you have a choice it also depends on the way you are built. I'm very brand loyal in this. I'm strictly body form person from college days. During my fresher week in college they gave a free sample and I've never turned back. Before then as a teen I used cheaper shop brands but no leaks with Body form. Then I tried Always brand but found it very messy. Then again my Lil-let friend swore by them. So I guess it's looking for the right brand for you.

So I stick to Bodyform & Tampax regardless of whether the others are on promotion. I just can't deal with messiness if they don't fit right.

Issues on the environment

I do feel the environmental impact on wastage because the applicators are all plastic, paper etc. There is the mooncup with has been around for a few years but not sure. If I do brave up, I'll do a review.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She


Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here.
