Poise "Stop the Scentsanity!" and Win a $100 Visa Gift Card!




If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you are aware that I turned 60 this summer and celebrated my new decade in many happy ways.  I love to stay active and enjoy life! Since moving to Colorado this past winter, one of my favorite activities has been hiking on the many trails on the front range. I try not to let my age slow me down, even if I sometimes feel the creak of arthritis in my knees, need to use my reading glasses with increasing frequency, or experience the inconvenience, from time to time, of what is called LBL (light bladder leakage).

 

That is why I was eager to accept a package of Poise liners, that are specifically made for light bladder leakage protection, to use and review.


Many of the trails I walk are challenging, with hills and steep grades. My hikes are good workout, and I'm still striving to get into better shape so that each hike will become easier to accomplish.


I only experience LBL when my bladder is very full, and the unexpected hearty sneeze or cough comes along. Since I find that I always need to drink a lot of water in the hot Colorado sun to stay hydrated while I hike, it was nice to know I had the added protection of a Poise Liner when I'm in a place without a restroom!


Besides hiking, I could think of many occasions where the Poise Liners would come in handy.  Occasions such as taking a long car ride in the mountains, going to a crowded sporting event, or on a busy day out shopping along with my infant granddaughter, when I know I will not be able to take a personal bathroom break for many hours.


The advantage of using Poise pads are that they are made specifically for bladder leaks, while period pads don't absorb as quickly and are more likely to leak. Poise pads aren't larger than period pads, even though they're made for LBL. They instantly absorb wetness and neutralize odors better than period pads and liners.

I get that if I cough or sneeze.
It can be so embarrassing.

That package is SO familiar! It's what I rely on to carry me through each day. The best option for that LBL.

I'm glad your knees still permit you to enjoy hiking. Mine have begun to protest much more loudly than in the past. Enjoy the time you are able to be this active!

I will mention this giveaway on my blog and return to you to let you know when I have done so.

Have a happy Monday!

Hiking, walking, and long road trips are all great times to use these. Love your hiking photos!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Pat, So glad you are hiking more. That is so important. Have you lost any weight by doing this? Bet you have!!!!!

I'm keeping my weight down by walking/hiking and by eating healthy. The healthy eating is JUST as important...

Sounds like CO is a great place for you to be now!!!!! Luckily, at age 71, I have experienced LBL much....

Hugs,
Betsy

To stay feeling clean and fresh I shower daily. I just recently started having problems with bladder control and I'm only 41. My worst fear is that I'll sneeze at work and not be prepared. Thanks for this coupon! I'll give Poise a try. ; )

Because of my MS, I find myself racing to the bathroom quite often (though age may play into it, too), so these would be helpful, I think. My plan so far for staying fresh is to run faster and farther as I age. (I wouldn't do well on those hikes you engage in, far from a potty.) :-D

Trotter said...

Hi Pat! Hope you are having a superb summer!
Sorry for the absence, but 2013 has been even worse than 2012... Anyhow, enjoy the blues of Grenada, and have a great vacation, if you can manage!!
All the best!

thanks for pointing out the difference between period pads and the Poise pads...I certainly didn't know the difference until reading your post. I usually use liners to feel clean and stay fresh. Guess I need a Poise upgrade!

I'm a long distance hiker/backpacker and I understand what's it like to be without a shower for days - 6 days is my longest so far. Liners do come in handy. So, when I'm in the woods, and try to carry a little as possible, I have a small container of powder and a couple of dryer sheets (at least I'll smell a little fresher).
