Ever since I started blogging, I have been WAITING for this day to arrive. The day where I can say a company recognized my complete allegiance, loyalty, and devotion to them and tapped me to be their national spokeswoman.
I suppose I am not "technically" a national spokeswoman, but I've decided to run with that exact story for this week (along with my being the secret, long-lost love child of Elvis Presley and Princess Grace).
When I originally started spotting the little Poise ads appearing on the BlogHer ad rotation (my blog network), I was over the moon with excitement. After all, I buy Poise and GoodNights--both Kimberly-Clark products--by the barrel. Whenever I laugh, I pee. And I also know a thing or two about GoodNights. When I first started getting my boys to sleep through the night, NOTHING kept sheets quite as dry as GoodNights. I mean it. The rest of the products out there s-u-c-k-e-d. You end up doing gads of laundry every morning and cursing your decision to have children. GoodNights single-handedly saved my sons from being deposited at an orphanage or neighborhood "safe haven."
Anyway, I know pee and the power of Poise. I've cracked a hundred jokes about my reliance on them:
I went through THREE Poise Pads because that movie was so funny!
You are hilarious! I need to go change my Poise pad now.
Oh, STOP. I just put on a fresh Poise!
Do you guys remember that episode of Friends where Joey accidentally appeared in an STD ad and was mortified? When I told my husband that I was doing this Poise program, he had the same reaction. Really? You want the world to know you've got...er....issues?
Hello? My base is moms. Most of us pee ourselves when we reach to turn on a lamp. We've also got a whole assortment of other issues impacting our hormones, freshness, and (shhh) "relations."
So when the nice people at my favorite factory in the whole world sent me some new goodies to check out, I was all over it:
I should proceed here with a certain delicacy that usually escapes me. It's not like I have any pride (have I mentioned I pee myself?). It's just that I do have a husband who was raised with 5 brothers and who panics whenever I say "period" in public. My general candor with things is what will probably one day kill him. Poor guy. He's such a Puritan.
Anyway, the Poise Personal Lubricant? It's nice. And that's all you're going to get from me. You're welcome, Joe.
The Cooling Towelettes are GENIUS. Not only do they help you stay clean and fresh, but they also provide a cooling sensation. This phenomenon could possibly lead to use of that aforementioned lubricant. NOT THAT I'M IMPLYING THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
Gosh, I could use a cigarette right about now.
The Feminine Wash was very light and had a really nice soapy, slightly fruity smell. I am one of those people who suffers migraines when exposed to over-fragranced products, and I really enjoyed the scent of this product. No headaches whatsoever.
The end result of my little experiment with the new Poise Feminine Wellness line was overwhelmingly positive. I feel super fresh, a bit tingly, and ready to do all kinds of things today (or tonight if you get my gist).
