Women Urged to Ditch Those Period Pads
Award winning actress Kirstie Alley has landed a new role as the Poise Fairy. The Poise Fairy is sassy. She’s hip. And she’s on a mission to break down the stigmas associated with Light Bladder Leakage (LBL), which impacts one in three women, while educating them about a solution that works.
While Kirstie (pictured above) does not have LBL, she has taken on the role of the Poise Fairy as a light-hearted way to help bring awareness to women about the condition.
“The Poise Fairy was fun to bring to life,” said Kirstie. “I wanted to help get women comfortable with LBL and tell the ladies to lose those period pads and give Poise a try!”
To help protect against LBL, many women reach for feminine care pads rather than Poise pads and liners that are specifically designed for LBL.[ Also Read: Pregnancy Gets Personal with Digital Ovulation Test ]
But in new television advertisements and an online video, Kirstie appears as the Poise Fairy to show the women with LBL that the Poise brand can help them stay fresh and dry from the little leaks they might experience while chatting at a party, working at the office or running at the gym. LBL can be triggered simply by laughing, sneezing or exercising.
Alley follows in the footsteps of comedienne, Whoopi Goldberg, and reality star, Kris Jenner, who have taken on the roles of “Great Women in History,” including Cleopatra, the Statue of Liberty, and Rosie the Riveter, to help break down taboos and educate women about LBL.[ Also Read: Six Sexy Offers for Her; Nothing for Sir ]
“We have seen a tremendous response from women when using a light-hearted approach to this topic,” said Rebecca Dunphey, Poise brand director at Kimberly-Clark. “It’s our hope that with the Poise Fairy we will continue to help women with LBL feel more confident.
“Period pads are for your period, but Poise pads and liners help women with LBL stay fresh and dry,” Dunphey continued. “We are encouraging women to ditch their period pads and try Poise brand products for themselves. They can visit Poise.com for a free sample.”
