For personal hygiene reasons I always use a panty liner. There are lots of different makes on the market and, for this reason, you find that the majority of supermarkets and local chemists offer exceptionally good deals on these products, so it is very worthwhile if you have the time to shop around.
I am quite an adventurous sought of person so I thought, for a change instead of getting my usual liners, I would try 'Bodyform So Slim Deo Fresh Liners - Lightly Fragranced'. The liners were acceptably priced at £1.59 for thirty two, which I found to be roughly in line with the price I usually pay for the other brand.
Regarding the packaging, the liners were attractively and individually wrapped with sticky tape for easy and, very importantly, hygenic disposal. This slim in size and nicely designed liner when placed in your panties fits extremely well. Being lightly fragranced it is ideal for people like myself who suffer from numerous allergies.
For everyday use, these liners serve their purpose well, giving you the feeling of freshness and at the same being hygienic, Although, I certainly wouldn't recomend these liners for people who need a lot more protection i.e. pregnant women and people with bladder problems etc. I consider a much better option would be a stronger designed liner. I believe these liners are available in three different sizes which should suit peoples particular needs.
Summing up, the 'Bodyform So Slim Deo Fresh Liner' is a well designed liner which is very sensibly priced.
On the whole I am not really brand loyal, I like to mix things up and try different products, especially if they are on some sort of special offer, but when it comes to sanitary pads I tend to stick the brand I know work best for me, Bodyform. I like to always be well stocked in this department and have a whole draw specifically for these products. Today I will be reviewing Bodyforms So Slim Deo Fresh Thin Liners, I actually picked these up on mistake last month as the packaging looks almost identical to my regular Bodyform liners, I don't normally go for fragrance pads. / liners but thought I might as well try them.
Bodyforms So Slim Thin Liners come in green cardboard packaging, the front shows the brand and product name along with a small picture of the liner. There is a small cut out "window" and the wrapped liners can be seen inside.
General information on the product is given on the sides of the box. Bodyform claim that they are striving to become more Eco friendly "were going the right way." More information about this can be found on their website www, bodyform.co.uk.
There are 32 liners inside the pack, all of which are individually wrapped in plastic, this makes carrying the liners around in a handbag hygienic and a little more discreet. This wrapper can also be used to wrap or and dispose of used liners, each wrapper has a sticky line to help with this.
The liner itself is stuck to the back of the wrapper and you simply need to pull gently to remove it, the liner should then be positioned into the pant. These liners are extremely small and thin, according to the Bodyform website they measure just 150mm in length. They are given just half out of six on the flow chart, so they are certainly not designed for everyday of your period. Bodyform state that these can be used everyday to keep you feeling fresh but this isn't what I personally use them for, I tend to wear them for the last day or so of my period when my flow tends to be very very light and they are more than suitable for this.
I find the liners incredibly comfortable to wear, so I can just forget all about them and get on with my day. They feel very soft and breathable which is extremely important in the sunnier months. Most importantly they stay in place during use, they do not move about or bunch up.
As mentioned earlier these liners are "deo fresh", which means they have been lightly fragranced. Initially I was a little apprehensive about using a fragranced liner but since I had already paid for them I thought I might as well use them. I was happy to discover that the fragrance was not overly strong, these really are "lightly fragranced" as Bodyform promise. I can best describe them as having a nice fresh clean smell to them. Still the fragrance is short lived and soon can not be detected at all. So my feeling on the "deo fresh" products have not changed, they are rather gimmicky and not really worth the extra pennies.
Just like any other liner, Bodyforms So Slim Deo Fresh Liners should be changed regularly, these are super easy to remove and leave no sticky residues from the adhesive on pants.
I give Bodyforms So Slim Deo Fresh Liners 4 stars out of 5, they are a good liner but I will probably stick to the un-scented in the future.
They have a RRP of £1.65, however they are often on offer for £1. They can be bought in Supermarkets, chemists and on line.
I'm rather picky when it comes to feminine hygiene products. After trying out a lot of different products, I now solely use Always for sanitary towels and Bodyform for liners.
As the name suggests, these liners are very thin and discreet. It's highly unlikely that anyone will be able to tell that you're using one as there is no bulk at all. As you can see from the image on the product image above, they are a tapered shape that gets wider towards the back. However, they do not stretch back very far, which is one reason why I do not use these when I'm on a period as I wouldn't feel comfortable that they would provide adequate protection. They're also relatively slim in terms of width too and just about fit my underwear. They may actually be a bit too wide for a thong but they're just about right for most other underwear.
They are lightly scented but this is by no means overpowering and as someone who has sometimes had problems with scented feminine products, I have had no issues with these liners being scented. They are also individually wrapped, which is perfect as I like to slip one in my bag when I'm out and about.
I do not use these on my period so I cannot comment on whether they would be any good on a light day but given the thinness, I'd imagine not. I find these to be absorbent and have had no problem in that department. They keep me feeling fresh throughout the day. I also buy the So Slim unscented liners (which are in green wrappers) and don't really notice any huge difference between the two in terms of freshness so it depends whether you're wanting something slightly scented or not.
One downside is that they seem to lose a bit of stickiness after a while and can easily ruttle up. This can be irritating as I can feel that it's bunched up and as it invariably moves too, it's not much use at this point. This isn't something that happens all of the time though so it's not a huge negative but it is something to be aware of and I can't give a 5 star rating because this has been known to happen.
These usually cost around the £2 mark for 32 liners but I tend to wait until they're on offer and buy a few boxes at a time. Superdrug often have them for 99p every so often and I am more than happy to pay this amount as I do like these liners. If I run out and can't get them cheaper, I am willing to pay the RRP rather than swap down to a cheaper option as I much prefer these to any other liners that I've tried previously.
I buy them regularly and they're the only liners that I buy so yes, definitely. I'm not a brand snob with many products but I always come back to Bodyform for liners.
Its a really embarrassing problem and not one that many people talk about but I found that during pregnancy when I sneezed or coughed or laughed, a little bit of wee would escape when I didn't want it to! Thankfully now that I am not pregnant this doesn't happen anymore but I know for some people this problem can unfortunately carry out. I did pelvic floor exercises like crazy to try and tighten up my muscles and these seem to have worked thank goodness but during pregnancy I needed to wear panty liners so I could keep nice and dry when I suffered from this unfortunate accidents.
I chose the Bodyform ones as I have used their period pads before and know that they are a good name in this area. These Bodyform Deo Fresh Liner So Slims are lightly fragranced for a fresher feeling.
The liners are extremely thin as they are just designed to keep you a bit fresh and not to soak up any period discharge. As they are so slim if you do have a little accident you will need to change the liner but it's nice to know you have that extra layer of protection and then only need to change this little liner instead of your whole outfit.
The great thing about them being so slim is that you cannot even detect they are there do its very discreet and not uncomfortable at all. They are made of a cotton soft surface so are not scratchy or irritable to your private areas which is nice.
Each liner is individually wrapped which is lovely as then you can just pop a few in your bag and take them out for the day to be sure you have enough. These were great for me through pregnancy and are a liner I recommend.
A pack of 32 costs £1.65 so they are very cheap as well.
These liners are very thin so you can hardly feel them once they're on. They're also really flexible so they move with your underwear, which is useful as they don't ride up then and come unstuck. The liners don't seem to come unstuck on a regular basis. I've had a few that have lost their sticky strip before but this has been during exercise or when I have been cycling. For general daily wear these don't lose their sticky strip and they stay in place all day. The liners are nice and soft. They feel comfortable against my skin and they don't cause any irritation and/ or any discomfort. The liners are VERY thin so they wouldn't be suitable for use during your period. I used them once during my period and they didn't really do anything, I just leaked everywhere - which wasn't a nice feeling! I sometimes use them underneath a tampon just in case I experience any leakage. This gives me extra peace of mind and enables me to carry on with my day. The liners are easy to carry around with you as they're small and discreet.
I use these for general wear but I find that I have to change them often during the summer months when I have been sweating as they don't absorb a lot of liquid. They also start to smell after a while so I use around two to three per day during summer.
Not bad. They're priced at around £1.50 for 32 liners.
As my due date approaches with my first baby, I find it essential on a daily basis to use some sort of pantyliner to catch any little leakage, otherwise I would be changing my underwear every hour or so. I have tried out quite a lot of pantyliners over the course of my pregnancy, with some providing better results that others, and I have often found that when I have went back to get a pack tha I liked, the price has either shot up, or the shop is out of them, and so I am frequently having to try new ones. This event happened again not long ago whilst in Tesco, when they were out of their own brand of pantyliners, but at the same time I noticed these Bodyform so slim thin liners on offer, plus I had a voucher for additional money off, bringing them down to a rather cheap price. When they are not on offer they can retail anywhere up to the £2 mark which i hefty in my opinion, for what you use them for.
Bodyform claims on their packaging that this is a new product. The outside square shaped box if bright apple green in colour, and each of the 32 pads comes wrapped in a little pouch. Each pantyliner if folded and you easily slip a few of these into your handbag and they won't take up anyroom, and so even if you aren't pregnant, they are a useful item to have spare in your handbag for any emergencies such as time of the month coming early etc etc. Like most sanitary products there is some indication given on the packaing about the absorbency of the product. On this bodyform product there are 6 little teadrops with only the first coloured in half way, obviously indicating that its absorbency is limited to only a very very light leakage/flow.
On the side of the box, it also states that these bodyform pantyliners will fit all types of briefs and underwear, and since the pantyliner is so sticky and flexible, you can shape it around whatever underwear you chose to wear, plus you feel that is will stay in place for as long as you need it. It may be quite sticky, however at the same time I have had no trouble removing it when I am finished with it as it comes away very easy from your underwear. It does state on the packaing that these liners are incredibly thin, and there really is no other way to describe them - in fact I don't think I have ever used such a thin pantyliner, and you won't even feel that you have anything on at all. These pantyliners are also breathable, which obviously in the summer months are particularly useful, and have a cotton soft surface and thus should not cause any irritation and allow for good ventilation!!
I am used normal Bodyform pantyliners in the past as well as their thicker pads, and I have generally always been happy with their products. On their packaging Bodyform do not claim that these pantyliners will be suitable for all uses, and to be totally honest you should really only use these liners if you are wanting to keep you underwear feeling fresh, or to catch any potential leakage like me when you are in the last throws of pregnancy and you realise you should have started pelvic floor exercises long before now!! I don't even think I would rely on them at the end of your period, as they really are very very thin and I don't think they would offer enough absorbency. In saying that, they are a useful and discreet thing to have in our handbag at all times. Even with a little bit of leakage, I find I have to chance these frequently, but at the same time, they do keep me feeling fresh for a while and are very comfortable to wear. I would certainly be happy to buy these again but only for certain reasons, and only for absorbing very very light amounts.
I purchased these a few weeks after giving birth to my daughter. I have never used these before but I had no idea when my periods would return and I didn't want to get caught short.
Like most ladies out there I had heard of Bodyform and knew they were a reputable brand. These liners were on offer at the time in Asda and cost £1 for 32. They are normally £1.50. The box is bright green in colour and inside you can see the individually wrapped liners.
They are described on the box as being;
Incredibly thin and flexible
Cotton soft surface
The liners themselves when removed from the box are rectangular, very thin and wrapped in a blue packaging. They are so small and thin they will fit discreetly into your handbag. To use you simply open the wrapper and peel the liner off the blue wrapper then you simply stick into your underwear. These liners are designed to fit all styles of underwear they taper off at the back making them suitable for thongs too. They are extremely thin the top layer feels like cotton and the underlayer is a breathable plastic for extra security.
One thing I did notice is that they do have a floral smell when you open the box.
I would definately buy these again, they are comfortable and you don't notice them as they move with you. They are absorbent enough to use when you are due on or at the end of your period when your flow is lightest or for everyday for a fresh feeling.
