When little girls grow-up, you reach a whole new level of parenting. Puberty can be a difficult time for both parents and their daughters, and as a mum to three girls aged 21, 16 and 10, I am no stranger to the issues faced by growing up! I want to help ease my girls through the stages of their life giving them as much help, advice and support as I can. When I was young girl, subjects such as periods were considered taboo. We didn't see adverts on the TV or in magazines and apart from the confusing talk at school whereby an elderly female teacher told us to tell her if we 'started' at school (started what?? I didn't have a clue!!) no-one really spoke about it. I'm so glad we live in a society where things are so much more open and information is so accessible, but it still isn't an easy time for girls.
One of the big dilemmas for girls is what products to use when they start their periods. There are so many options on the market that it can be quite overwhelming. This problem has just been made easier, by the launch of a new range of sanitary products. Lil-lets now sell teen towels, liners and tampons designed specifically for a young girl's body to provide a perfect fit. The range has been brought together into a Teen Starter Pack which includes 2 lite tampons, 1 regular tampon, 2 regular applicator tampons, 1 teens liner pouch, 4 day teens towels, 2 night teens towels and 1 'Becoming a Teen' booklet with advice on puberty, body changes and using the products. Everything is in a pretty little re-usable zip up bag.
This helpful pack contains everything a girl could need to help them choose the products that are right for them and are available on the Lil-lets wesite and in Boots stores nationwide. RRP £4.49
The Teens Starter Set is a very good product. I really like the idea of having everything in one handy, discreet and pretty little pack that can be re-used. It is a really good starting point for young girls to understand what products are available and the fact they are designed for a teenager's body (being shorter, and narrower but just as absorbent as adult sizes) makes them more comfortable to use. The booklet is informative without being patronising. I'd go as far as to say that this set actually makes a young girl feel a bit special at this big moment in their lives. I wish I'd had something like this when I was a girl!
We were sent a lovely gift from Li-lets to introduce their new product range. As well as receiving the Teens Starter Set, the girls were sent some pampering goodies. Lil-lets know exactly what else helps make this phase of a young girl's life more bearable: a cuddly hot water bottle, some fancy beauty products and of course a bar of chocolate!
