As a Bzzagent I am given products to try out for free. Sometimes these products are cool, other times not so much. This is one of the not so much times. I am not saying that Always Dailies are not a good product, far from it they are excellent, but they are not one of the more exciting items I have had to try out and spread my opinion on. Always Dailies come packaged up in a nice recyclable cardboard box. The box has all the usual information on regarding absorption capacity and size. The ones I am trying out are the normal light which are the mid range size that Always make with a thickness of only 1.7mm, which is important as no one wants a rug in there undies. On the box I am told that the Always Discreet Liner will adapt to the movements of my body, that they are flexible and have optimal hold. I am also told that the panty liners are dermatologically tested and that they are breathable and have an absorption zone. I have never tried panty liners before, I have looked at them in the shops and thought hmm, do I really need that and the majority of the time my answer has been no. But as I get to try this product out for free I thought what the heck. There are 24 panty liners in the box, which makes sense as for the other days of the month you will most likely be using some other for of sanitary protection. The panty liners are packaged loose which makes them pretty useless for transporting around individually in your bag but I think Always make an individually wrapped product for that purpose. The box opens up envelope style and reveals the tightly packed panty liners .At first I did have a little trouble pulling out one at a time but now a few have been removed from the pack it is easier to access them. Using the panty liners is pretty self explanatory, you just peel off the sticky back panel and stick the panty liner sticky side down to the gusset of your pants and then pull your pants up and you are away. So how do they perform? For a product I was never really that bothered about to start with they have there good and bad attributes. The good is that they stick easily to my pants the bad is that they stick a little to well and I nearly punched myself in the head unsticking one from my undies. Another good point is that they are really thin, but for me not thin enough, I am aware of the panty liner in my underwear for the majority of the day and I am sure that is not the meaning of discreet. I do find the panty liner to be very soft and have suffered no irritation but the shape of the liner means that they are not suitable for all shapes of underwear. The panty liners do not make me sweat which is good as that would be defeating the object of it being there and as for absorbency I think they are ok. My downstairs area remains fresh all day, I do shower everyday though. In all honesty I have never noticed an over moistness in that department before. Right, I am getting a bit wary of being over descriptive so will sum up. Always Dailies panty liners are soft, flexible and absorbent and stick very well, but for me they are not discreet enough, I am constantly aware of the presence of the panty liner, which makes them uncomfortable for me to wear. Always do do a more discreet size with a depth of less than a millimetre so I will probably give them a try just to make sure I am being fair. In conclusion 3 out of 5 stars as I just don't feel comfortable wearing Always Dailies every day. Thank you for reading xx
I have been using Always pantyliners for years having found them ideal for comfort and dryness. However, for some reason they have suddenly changed to a new 2 in one pad and these are disappointingly not the same. There was a cover on the original one but the new one's don't have it and I find the pile comes loose and they stick to the covered area. It irritates me so much that I have had to change to another brand.
Pantyliners are a very useful invention from a young age I have used pantyliners on the days nearing my period as a method of protection in case it started before I was prepared. Since I have become very regular I find that I still use pantyliners but no longer for protection. I now use them more for the fresh clean feeling that they leave me with. Alldays are my favourite brand of pantyliner as I find the material that is used to be softer and more pleasant than other panytliners I have tried. My only complaint with the Alldays pantyliners that I buy is that they come in a large box so they are hard to transport hygienically without buying a special case. Alldays pantyliners come in a purple box in a variety of sizes. They are very reasonably priced and can often be found on offer in the major supermarkets. I would recommend these to anyone who likes that fresh feeling.
I apologise in advance as this review may come across as a little bit "too much information" for some people, especially men! I have been using these pantyliners for years, although I must admit that I have recently bought some cheaper ones from a supermarket to use when these run out (forthcoming review on this in the coming days or weeks). I tend to use these at times when the discharge is a little heavier and this would otherwise be quite uncomfortable and not very hygenic. I tend to use the long variety to make sure that nothing ends up on the fabric of my knickers. They are also quite useful if my period starts early as they seem to do a good job of soaking up the blood during the lighter stage, although this isn't very practical if you have a heavier start to your period as I think one of these would not be enough protection. The long type fit my underwear nicely but I often find that the normal size leaves some gaps around the edges and has more of a tendency to move about. Obviously this does depend on the size of your knickers! These claim to be able to protect against odours. I'm not sure how, but perhaps something to do with locking it into the pantyliner? They are not individually wrapped, which can be problematic if you want to take one out and about with you. For a pack of 24 pantyliners, these cost around £1.89. The 52 pack cost around £2.99. Both of those prices refer to the long type that I buy, and are from Sainsburys. I think the normal type are pretty much the same price.
This review is a bit of a departure from my normal ones but I will try to be as delicate as possible in my explanations so I don't offend anyone. Since I had a hysterectomy many years ago I don't need the usual monthly feminine protection any longer but what I do use are panty liners. Thinking back I must have started to use them for the in between days 'just in case' and I liked the feeling of freshness and cleanliness that they gave me, especially when I was wearing trousers all day. I suppose nowadays I could probably do without them but I have got so used to the nice fresh feeling that I still use them every day. I always used to use Carefree and still do occasionally when they are on offer but mostly now I use Always Alldays Breathable Pantyliners. These come in a variety of sizes - Discreet Ultra Thin, Tanga, Normal, Normal Fresh, Normal Singles (individually wrapped), Large, Large Fresh and Long Plus Extra. I think from that list everyone could find one that suits the needs. For some reason the pack sizes can be 24, 28, 30, 32, 34, 52 and 60 depending on the size of pantyliner you choose to buy. I usually buy the normal ones which currently cost £1.40 for 32 or £2.93 for a jumbo pack of 60 at normal price in Tesco. As you can see from this information it pays to think about which size to buy! Clearly buying 2 packs of 32 even at normal price would mean that you got 64 for £2.80 as opposed to £2.93 for 60!! The daftest thing is that the 32 size packs are on offer at the moment at 2 for £2.50, which makes the larger size even worse for value. There are often offers on this product in Tesco's and in Boots but be careful that you are actually getting the best deal for your money. Apart from the 'singles' pack where each liner in the packet is individually wrapped to make them easier to carry in your handbag, the liners come in a cardboard packet stacked on top of one another. As you can see for this description there is no excess packaging and the cardboard can be recycled. To use the liners you just peel off the backing to reveal a sticky strip which then attaches to the inside of your panties. The liners are soft, breathable and dermatologically tested to be non irritant to your delicate bits. The centre panel is slightly thicker than the outer edges but the whole thing is extremely thin and as such is very comfortable to wear as you can't really feel that it's there. The liner is flexible for comfort and 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. At the end of the day you just peel it off your panties and throw it away. I don't flush mine down the toilet in case they cause any blockages; I always wrap mine and throw them in the bin. I can thoroughly recommend these for keeping you fresh and clean all day long and I hope I haven't offended anyone sensibilities with this review!
What an excellent creation, I have used most pantyliners and have found this product which I am going to stick to. They are about £2 for a pack of about 20. They have different types out, there are light ones for people who do not have heavy periods, and ones for heavy periods, they heavier period ones are just a little larger, the thickness is not affected. They are not just like the normal ones you buy with just a pad but they have a breathable material that soaks up all that comes out of the vagina so you have nothing rubbing onto you as it is all absorbed. I bought a new box a few days ago that were wrapped up in puches so this must be a new thing, Being wrapped up makes it so much easier to carry in your bag with you or put into your pocket. They are shaped perfectly, not to large and fit around the knickers and back end nicely so you are not scrunching it up your bottom all day and it satys put. You can barely notice that you have it on. It is easy to put in place you just pull of the sticky back and place on the knickers however you feel comfortable with. Because they have the breathable material I find that I do not sweat as much as it draws all the moisture in. I do not know if you are aware but really we should not wear pantyliners as they are a breeding ground for bacteria, and we have a lot of it down there, and this is what causes a lot of infections
Breathable and secure so you feel fresh
