Carefree is a range of pantyliners. A pantyliner is designed to be stuck to your underwear to keep you fresh 'down there'. The Carefree range of pantyliners is quite extensive but not to the same extent as leading brand Always. There are different sizes and thicknesses available. I will be focussing my attention on the Carefree pantyliners with cotton extract.
These pantyliners are presented in a pink box and each liner is individually wrapped. These pantyliners are marketed as giving the feeling of wearing cotton underwear. They are unscented but an scented version is available. They are described as being breathable and are dermatologically tested.
~Price and Availability~
Carefree pantyliners are available from supermarkets and stores such as Boots and Wilkos. Current prices for the cotton version are as follows :
*Boots - £1.05 (20pk) or £2.79 (58pk)
*Tesco - £1.00 (20pk) or £1.85 (34pk)
Since having my son nearly five years ago, things down below have never quite returned to normal - I'm sure many woman can relate. It isn't pleasant but I have learned to live with it. When I confided in my Mum, she recommended using pantyliners to keep me feeling fresher on a day to day basis or as and when I felt I needed them. I use tampons during my time of the month but these are more suited to keeping me fresh the rest of the month.
These pantyliners are easy to transport due to being wrapped individually. They are practical and discreet to use compared to large, bulky sanitary pads that I had to wear as a teenager or after having my son. Each pantyliner is neatly folded and features a flower design tab over the sticky area. They fix neatly into my underwear and do not look bulky. They stick well and remain secure even if I am doing exercise or general household chores. They do not have wings and they are a one size fits all product though bigger pantyliners/pads are available in this range.
These pantyliners have a soft surface which is very gentle against sensitive parts and have no scent - no irritation there. They are slim and I can't really tell that I am wearing them. These liners suit my needs well but I do prefer Always as I feel they have a better fit in my underwear. These pantyliners aren't suitable for heavy bleeding or leakages. They are perfect for keeping me fresh and clean feeling down there and absorb any light leakages. I use them during the heavier days of my period alongside a tampon 'just in case' and also when I think Mother Nature is gone but I'm not certain. The ladies will know what I mean! They are breathable and comfortable to wear.
These pantyliners perform well at keeping me feeling clean and fresh. They are comfortable to wear and easy to change as and when I need to change them through the day. They can be wrapped up again and disposed of in a sanitary bin or with regular rubbish. I find a box lasts me a month or so as I don't always feel the need to wear them. They give me a bit more confidence when out and about and I can recommend them to those who need a little extra protection and aren't expensive either.
Thanks for reading :)
