Neutrogena Naturals and Durex Love-Box

Here are two new collections I saw at Walgreens and CVS.
Neutrogena Naturals lip balm, pore scrub and makeup remover, all in someway natural and "good for you". I like my chemicals so no thanks...And at CVS, I saw something that's a lot more interesting...
 Love Box,is supposed to be a condom-holding box that's "fashionable", "chic" and "discrete". I don't get it, wouldn't it be more fashionable/chic/discrete if you just tuck it in your cute coin pouch, wallet or blotting sheet compact? Instead of carrying a huge square box that's coincidentally shaped like a condom wrapper...

From the Love-Box (who was an independent company) website at Durex:
"Love-Box was created for people like you, who think sex should be a fun, positive experience - and that buying condoms shouldn’t have to be awkward or embarrassing."
Urgh...Don't we (you, me, the cashier and the person who stands right next to you in line) all know what "Durex" is?

  1. about the love boxes, people are very easily won over by the clever marketing of something that's really useless and unnecessary. I totally agree with you about just sticking it in something you already have.
