Carefree Cotton Pantyliners - not the best around but not the worst!
Member Name: karlsm93
Advantages: Individually wrapped good price
Disadvantages: Not as good as other liners
Anyone who has had a baby will know bout bleeding for several weeks after birth. Mine is now thankfully near an end and so I only need to use pantyliners now rather than thicker pads. Whilst doing my weekly shop in Tesco I was going to pick up some pantyliners when I noticed these Carefree cotton pantyliners were on offer at 2 for £1, and although I had never tried this brand I felt it was worth a shot at that price.
The Carefree range of sanitary products comes in a vibrant pink packaging and I'm quite surprised I had never noticed them on the shelf before. I purchased two packs of the cotton liners, each with 20 individually wrapped liners in a box. As well as containing natural cotton extract these liners are also breathable, which should in theory, make you feel comfortable and fresh as if are just wearing fresh cotton against your skin.
These liners are wrapped in a little pink pocket that makes them small and discreet enough to carry in a pocket or handbag. Each liner has a flowery backing sheet which is peeled back to reveal a sticky adhesive strip which you then attach to your underwear. This is where I felt the product lagged behind other brands as I found the backing strip hard to remove from the actual liner and was certainly not something you could do in a rush. When I eventually get the strip removed it attaches well to my underwear and is also easily removed when finished with.
The other criticism I have of the product is that I find it can hard and rigid compared with many of the softer and more flexible liners of other brands. It isn't that the liners are uncomfortable its just that they are rather hard in my opinion.
In terms of keeping me fresh during the day, well I find that they do this reasonably well although despite at times there being little blood loss on the liner I am aware that it is there and I need to change it, which with other brands they sometimes keep you so fresh and dry that you can sometimes forget to change a liner.
All in all these liners aren't bad value for money and at the end of the day they are ideal for what they are being used for and ultimately put in the bin anyhow! There are better brands of liners available so they aren't the best on the market, nor are they the worst!
Summary: An okay liner for the price
