Advantages: Work well, feel comfortable, good price
Disadvantages: None for me
I will begin by warning you that this is not my usual sort of review but I promise to try to be as delicate as possible in my explanations of the product and its uses so that I don't run the risk of offending anyone.
I had a full hysterectomy about twenty years ago and as such I don't need the usual monthly feminine protection any longer but I do always wear panty liners. I originally began using them before my operation on the days in between my periods 'just in case' and I have always liked the feeling of freshness and cleanliness that they gave me, especially since I usually wear trousers all day and can sometimes get hot and sticky in rather intimate areas.
I still love the feeling of freshness and now I am getting older I do get an occasional very small leak (if you know what I mean ladies) and using liners gives me the confidence of being fresh and dry at all times.
Over the years I have tried quite a few different panty liners when they have been on offer including Tesco's own, Carefree and Kotex but I always come back to Alldays. The ones that I like best are the Always Alldays Light Breathable liners. Incidentally Always also do a range of sanitary towels which, from what I can remember, are also very good too.
The Alldays liners comes in a wide variety of sizes - Discreet Ultra Thin, Tanga, Normal, Normal Fresh, Normal Singles (individually wrapped), Large, Large Fresh and Long Plus Extra. They also come in a variety of pack sizes too depending on which liner you choose. There are 18, 24, 28, 30, 32, 34, 52, 60 and even 80 and this product is certainly one where economies of scale are evident. I have bought most of the pack sizes over the years but usually buy the pack of 60 or sometimes two packs of thirty if they happen to be on offer and come in at a lower price.
Currently the packs of 30 are £2 in Tesco or £1.98 in Asda and both supermarkets have an offer of two packs for £3 so you get two moths protection for just £3. This is a product which is often on special offer in the supermarkets and in Boots so keep your eyes open and stock up when they're cheaper! That's what I do!
The box is made from light cardboard and is bright blue and turquoise in colour with the name of the product, the size of liner and number contained.
Inside the boxes the liners come stacked on top of one another and the box is just large enough for the liners to fit inside. This way there is no excess packaging and the cardboard can be recycled or in our case burnt in our log burner.
There is a set of perforations in a V shape on the side of the box so that it can be opened and then used as a container for the unused liners.
The liners themselves are a sort of long rectangle with rounded ends and a peel off backing. There is an absorbent panel down the centre with side protection zones which are there to keep the fluid within the liner so there is no risk of leaking.
To use the liners you just peel off the backing which reveals a sticky strip which then attaches to the inside of your panties. The adhesive is brilliant and I have never had the problem of one of these liners coming adrift from my underwear.
The liners are soft, breathable and they have been dermatologically tested so that they will not irritate your delicate bits. The absorbent centre panel is very slightly thicker than the outer edges but the whole thing is still very thin which makes it comfortable to wear and I don't ever really notice that it is there.
The liner is absorbent enough to contain any little accidents due to mild bladder weakness or spotting between periods and keeps you feeling fresh all day long. It is also flexible so that it moves with you and remains in place whatever you do.
When it is time to get undressed you just have to peel the liner off your panties and throw it away. They can be flushed away but you must make a rip into the liner first so as to break the seal otherwise, when the liner absorbs water in the system, it will blow up like a balloon and block the pipe.
For this reason I never flush mine down the toilet - I always wrap mine and throw them in the bin.
In conclusion I would definitely recommend these liners for cost and effectiveness I don't think that they can be beaten and I always feel fresh and clean all day when wearing one.
There! That wasn't too graphic was it?
