You would think that, after 31 years of having my period, I'd be a bit more comfortable with it. I don't mean with the actual physical symptoms, but rather with the necessary equipment. And toting said equipment around in public. I guess it has gotten slightly less mortifying than it once was in public school, but there is still something so utterly personal about this womanly experience that we simply don't want to share the news with others. Accidentally pulling a tampon out of your pocket, or having one fall out of your purse in mixed company? Walking down the hall to the washroom while discreetly trying to hide one in your sleeve? (Why can't I remember to wear something with pockets??) It can be pretty upsetting for a grown woman, so just try to remember what it was like when you were in school.
Molly Watson, a mom of three boys, decided to take matters into her own hands, and she created Tbox to-go. This sleek and pretty tampon holder was designed to look good and offer an in cognito means of transporting our feminine protection when out and about. The case is large enough to hold up to 3 standard tampons with applicators in its main compartment. While on the other end there is a secret pill case, perfect for bringing along your painkillers. Two-in-one protection for that time of the month. The caps on each end fit quite snugly, and I had no problem with them slipping off accidentally.
The design of Tbox to-go reminded me of some of the small reading glasses cases I've seen lately, and it would blend right in with lipstick or mascara tubes, although it is sized larger. The surface of the case is mirrored, so you can use it with your make-up for a quick touch-up if needed.
This product definitely gets a thumbs-up from me. It's pretty and practical, and addresses a very real need of young (and not so young) women on the go.
Tbox to-go can be purchased online at tboxgirl.com. Available in three colours - Perfectly Pink, Lime Green, and Charcoal Grey - these retail for $14.99 USD. Shipping is free to US addresses when you purchase two or more Tbox products. International shipping is also available. I think this would make for a great stocking stuffer for any young women in your life.
