Review| JOUI Premium Sanitary Pads - Joy of Using It


JOUI
Joy of Using It

Premium Sanitary Pads


JOUI invited me to try out their premium sanitary pads and wanted me to tell you that they are about to launch real soon. They also have a launching event which will be mentioned at the end of this blog post. Do read up what sorts of pads these are and maybe you'll want to join the event even more.


Liner pads are part of my essentials now. I know that there are reusable ones out there but honestly, I don't have a lot of time to deal with the bloodstains every single day. Blood stains aren't easy to get rid of, is what I've learned from over a decade of bleeding from my southern area. I generally use liner pads because I have spotting from using hormonal items, which is a normal side effect but it tends to get a little annoying when I stain my underwear on the day I thought I wouldn't have any spotting. That's why, right now, I'm wearing it every day.

I'm still unsure why sanitary pads are still a taboo in the society but right here in my territory, it is not. However, while I'm very open about using them on a daily basis, I would still feel a little shy to wave my pads around people who aren't my family members or my boyfriend since it's such an obvious packaging. It's just something about the packaging that kinda associates with being shamed by my peers back when I was 12 and they didn't know better. Not to mention how society reacts to it. Ugh.


At this point though, having to use sanitary pads that don't look like one can really ease my mind in which is what JOUI is offering. If anything, they look like biscuits in packets or powdered drinks that you have to mix with water before drinking. The premium packaging allows you to bring it around, even waving it around strangers or in front of your colleague and their first guess will never be "sanitary pads." They will never know.... until they get closer or open up the packet of course. Not to mention, the packaging also acts as a disposable bag for the used pads, which can be very helpful because imagine changing pads in someone else's house or in the office washroom and your used pads are just so obvious in the trash bin.

For me, clean pads are fine but I'm kinda embarrassed about used pads. I mean, wouldn't anyone feel totally okay with a clean tissue but is grossed out by used tissue? That's how I feel about it. Hence, this is why JOUI comes in real handy.

Foodie| Châteraisé Patisserie Desserts - Strawberry Daifuku, Coffee Cream Puff, Soufflé Cheese Cake, Coffee Jelly, Dorayaki

My boyfie and I were near Tealive in Gardens, Midvalley and we couldn't think of which dessert shop to go for, even though Gardens and Midvalley have quite a wide variety of it. Then this shop popped in my mind because it was in the Jaya Grocer store near Tealive. I've always had an idea that this store is good but was never really going to purchase until I had to sit down somewhere and eat something that is light and sweet.

This Japanese dessert shop was apparently the bomb when it started a branch in Malaysia back in 2016 but I don't usually see many people purchasing this because of the price tags for those desserts that were directly imported from Japan.

Anyway, we stood there for quite a long time, trying to figure out what to buy because, quite frankly, I wanted everything except for the coffee desserts. However, coffee is very much my boyfriend's favourite so it automatically became one of my options too. Our budget was RM37 and we chose 5 items which resulted in a final bill of RM34.20.

We ordered 4 packet-desserts and a cake. The staff placed a couple of cold packs inside the cake box and the paper bag to keep the desserts from melting. Here's a list of my items ranked from best to meh.



Strawberry Daifuku

(Mochi Cream)
Rm 4.70

4.5/5.0


Daifuku is basically mochi filled with pastes. The inserts could be anything. It can be bean paste or fruit paste. I chose strawberry daifuku because I kept seeing it on my IGstory feed and I couldn't help it.

The mochi has cream wrapped in strawberry jam, mochi skin and then with some (probably) confectioner's sugar on the outside. It's very soft and a little mushy. I can't seem to hold it without denting it, that's why it looked out of shape when I was holding it.
