“ Brand: Always / Type: Sanitary towel with wings / Flow: Normal „
These come at a very affordable price - only one pound for twelve pads!
As such, I was pleasantly surprised that they were so comfortable. They feel very soft and they do not scratch or irritate like some other products can. One other benefit is that these pads do NOT have that offensive 'odour control' feature which can be likened to the smell of toilet cleaner. Why they infuse that aroma into pads, I don't know!
These pads fit snugly into underwear and they seem to move easily with your body (rather than against it). One does not visit the loo and find that the pad has become 'scrunched up', as it were. They are small and conveniently individually-wrapped in white plastic. It's nice that they don't have ridiculous handbags and butterflies printed on them too.
'Always' are, of course, a trusted make but it would be nice if they would produce eco-friendly pads and packaging. The amount of plastic that is used is definitely very bad for the environment. Also, a company known for animal-testing own 'Always' which really does put me off. So, not all good I am afraid!
These pads are a bargain at a pound for twelve. They have a silky smooth top layer that feels lovely when brushed against the skin. I find that the top layer doesn't irritate my skin, nor does it make me itch. The shape of the pad itself fits my female body perfectly. These pads are suitable for all shapes and sizes and they're pretty absorbent too. They are the "normal" pads but I often use these for heavy flow too as they are so reliable and they're comfortable to wear throughout the day (and night) aswell. They are easy to fit and they are easy to remove. I wrap them in their bottom wrapper and dispose of them via normal household waste. I don't flush them down the toilet as that is disgusting - plus they block toilets anyway when flushed. As the pads are so comfortable to wear I sometimes use them under tampons for extra protection, especially when I am at work. The pads are also easy to carry around with you. They're small enough to fit into a handbag and their special wrapper keeps them fresh until they're ready to be used. The wings are there to give you extra peace of mind - they do with me anyway.
None really - apart from the fact that sometimes they lose their stick and come undone, although this is usually when i'm exercising or at the gym. A "quick fix" is usually all you need to re stick them!
Great pads for use throughout your period.
