I recall how excited I was when I was about 11 and started my period. My friend and I were literally jumping up and down. Looking back on that night 30+ years later, I have NO clue what the heck we were celebrating…LOL! Because my mom and I both started pretty young, I made sure to start education my daughter about changes that would occur in her body when she was about 9. Being a teenager is already stressful enough. Then add in the emotional and physical toll that monthly periods can take on your body and you have one “interesting” daughter on your hands. My oldest daughter typically has the same PMS type symptoms leading up to and during her period: mood swings, headaches (sometimes migraines) and cramps. Advil® Menstrual Pain is here to help relieve the aches and pains associated during this time.
Thanks goodness I can now find this product at Walmart. The trick is to make sure and check the bottom shelf where period relief items are located. I went searching for them with all of the other types of Advil® and couldn’t find it…LOL!
Each month I also like to surprise my daughter with a goodie basket of items that will help with her pain relief as well as a few “treats”. I typically include her favorite candy or chips, a bath item and tissue! The tissue is really for both of us…LOL! I mean who doesn’t cry during the month. And sometimes being a parent is hard and you just need a good cry! The basket I got her this month included Advil® Menstrual Pain, Nestlé® Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups, Kleenex® and body scrub for the shower.
My 14-year-old daughter and I have great communication when it comes to her physical health and I explained to her that everything she was experiencing was completely normal. Since she knows her body very well now she’s able to take the medication before the pain of cramps, headaches or back pain overpower her. Advil® Menstrual Pain is also caffeine-free, antihistamine-free, and easy-to-swallow. Many other menstrual pain relievers contain caffeine, you up at night, or antihistamines, which can cause daytime drowsiness. When taken as directed Advil® Menstrual Pain works for up to 6 hours.. And we all know how important a good night’s rest is for a growing teenager. Heck a good night’s rest is important for us moms too!
Thanks to the benefits of Advil® Menstrual Pain my daughter can enjoy other activities without pain being a barrier. One of her favorite hobbies is DIY makeup. The easiest by far thing to make is tinted lipgloss. All you need is coconut oil, crayons and something to store it in. Don’t buy they cheap ones because those things won’t EVER melt. We used a glass mug (placed in a pot of hot water) to melt a few dollops of coconut oil, removed the paper and placed broken pieces of crayon in one piece at a time, then stirred with a toothpick. After it melted we poured them into a container I got from Dollar Tree that I found in the automotive section. Let it cool and you’ve got tinted lipgloss!
You can totally run wild with the colors since they are pretty sheer. The best part is how amazing your lips will feel from the coconut oil. <3
Advil® Menstrual Pain relievers can be found at your local Walmart and be sure to pick up some while you’re getting your medication stocked for the cold and flu season as well.

I never thought of using crayons to tint lip gloss- but I bet the coconut oil is super luxurious! I also love how you can practically make a rainbow palette with that little container you’re pouring into! #client
