Freshen Up Essentials : Carefree GIVEAWAY [CLOSED]

Carefree-Logo1

carefreeAs a Mom always on the go – whether busy picking the kids up from school, finding time to get to the gym  or running to the grocery store – taking simple steps to keep feeling fresh can go a long way. That’s why it’s important for moms to keep “freshen up essentials” on hand, wherever they go – mints, body mist, deodorant, pantiliners – anything they’ll need to freshen up in a pinch.

True to its name, Carefree has developed an innovative new product to add to your routine and help keep you feeling refreshed. Now 40% thinner and up to twice as absorbent (compared to the previous Carefree Body Shape liners), Carefree Acti-Fresh liners were designed with everyday wear in mind. Plus, the odor control system keeps you feeling fresh for up to eight hours, covering you throughout the day, especially while exercising, traveling, or whenever you’re on-the-go.

I don’t know about you, but after I became a mom I found that panti-liners became more than a once a month item (isn’t Mother Nature a comedian?). I was on a mission to find one that I could wear on a daily basis that wasn’t bulky, didn’t smell like perfume, was absorbent and easily portable.  Carefree’s new acti-fresh liner has all of these attributes and they come in thin, regular, long and extra long. Depending on the coverage you need, they’ve got the product for you.

Want to give them a try? Sign up here for a free sample or download a coupon to take to the store today!

WIN IT:

One OurKidsMom reader is going to win Carefree Acti-Fresh Liners.

This giveaway ended at 11:59PM EST on May 2, 2011.

Disclosure:

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Carefree and received a product sample and gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.The sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment and will be shipping the winner(s) their prize(s).

    These will come in handy…unfortunately…:)

  2. I just got my period after 3 years.. weird to have it again. I have not had it since before my son was conceived.. breastfed and then had mirena. I took mirena out recently.

    Thanks mother nature for visiting me twice this month. I know I took some medicine that said it would interfere, but come on, I already have pneumonia, and am having a hard enough time holding things in because I am coughing so hard. Did you really have to do this to me now?

    I’m like everyone else that hates our period but it’s hard to knock it since it’s the price we pay for our children. Ugh, remembering that doesn’t help when I want to mow down everyone in my path when I have PMS every month. Lol.
