Hello Flo’s ‘Camp Gyno’: A Tampon Ad Done Right! #31WriteNow Day 1

Thank you Buzzfeed for showing me this!

This is an ad for HelloFlo.com, a subscription service that sends care packages of sanitary products. I remember when I first got my period at 12 and like everyone it’s super awkward to talk about with your parents.

However, with this ad it gives young girls real life perspective in a way they would understand.
Unlike the other tampon commercials, it’s straight to the point. There’s no girls prancing around in white in my experience.

These little girls need to know the struggle that they have to go through for the next 40 years.  Wanting to do nothing but stay in bed,

and bury your sorrows in food.

“This is your life now.” Truer words haven’t been spoken.
