When I was a teen, I was embarrassed when my mom had me pick out sanitary protection at the store, I would hide it in the cart. I specifically chose o.b. tampons because they were small and discreet for my purse or pocket when I had to take them to school.
Did you know that millions of girls across the world don’t have proper sanitary protection? To them, it is a luxury item. I have often wondered what girls and women in developing countries do. It is a sad situation that can have devastating lifelong consequences for teens in developing countries. Girls are missing 3-4 days of school a month, and eventually dropping out as they get so far behind. They are using unhealthy alternatives like clothing and even mattresses.
I’m here to tell you about Huru® International and their cost-effective solution of Huru® Kits. Huru Kits empower girls with sanitary protection, information on how to protect their health and continue their education. Each Huru Kit comes in a drawstring bag with:
- Eight reusable sanitary pads
- Three pairs of underwear
- Detergent-grade soap to wash the sanitary pads
- A re-sealable, waterproof bag to safely store used sanitary pads
- Educational insert focused on proper Huru® pad care and usage
- Life-saving HIV/AIDS prevention information

If you have never tried o.b.® tampons, you should give them a try. Like I said above, I’ve used them since I was a teenager. With no applicator, they are more discreet and easier to transport in your purse, diaper bag, and even your pocket. I remember a funny story from high school. My best friend, Beth reached into her pocket for change for the snack machine and pulled out her change AND her o.b.! So, yes, they are small, just be sure not to pull them out of your picket when you aren’t not meaning too! 🙂
Plus, o.b. tampons work by expanding all -around, not just lengthwise like other tampons. are designed smarter to protect against leaks by evenly expanding all-around – not just lengthwise – to custom-fit the natural shape of each woman. And, they produce 58% LESS waste than other tampons with applicators!
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of o.b. and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
