Janelle In Real Life: Summertime Essentials with U by Kotex


Summertime Essentials with U by Kotex

Hey there friends! Today I'm giving you peek into my bag for summer... basically these are my summertime essentials.

These days are filled with trips to the park/splash pad/water park to keep the little guy busy, as well as the usual errands, weekend events for me, and fun little family outings. I like to keep it simple when it comes to what I bring along, but these are all things I love to have on hand.

Sunscreen: this is an obvious one. I HATE getting sunburned and it's good to have a little spf handy! #idontwantskincancer.

Sunnies: A major staple for summertime! These beauties are my new favorite from J. Crew Factory.

Chapstick: I love having soft lips and I always choose chapstick over lipgloss or lipstick in the summertime. Baby Lips by Mabyelline is a long time favorite brand of mine!

A good read: People Stylewatch is a good casual read... but I hope to pick up some good books from the library to keep me busy.

U by Kotex pads with 3D capture core: These pads are lifesavers when I'm out and about and not prepared for my monthly visitor. U by Kotex pads with 3D capture core are deceptively thin and compact, because the 3D capture core center locks away liquid to stop leaks from happening... which is totally awesome. It is possible to get good protection from a thin (but durable) pad!
I'm sure many of you ladies (like me) have had to toss out a favorite pair of undies or two thanks to a pad or panty liner that can't quite do the job. It's such a waste! U by Kotex is on a mission to #savetheundies, and I'm totally on board with that.
If you'd like to try these pads out for yourself, you can get a free sample HERE.
