“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Incontinence Pads / Dosage Form: Pads „
When it comes to bladder weakness it's something I'm not too shy to admit to! At 35 years old and a big drinker (of anything but alcohol usually, I do not have an alcohol problem by the way lol!) I tend to always have an overflowing bladder, particularly in this cold weather!
Add to that of late I have done alot of traveling, touring with a caravan and have spent alot of hours on the road. Not only do I worry about leakage but smell...after-all no one wants to smell anything but fresh eh when traveling with others!
I spotted these incontinence pads for £1.49 for 12 of them in my local Sainsbury's store. Having usually pay out alot more for this type of product normally I was eager to try a more economy option to compare to far more expensive brands and maybe save a few quid along the way and in the long run!
Whit oblong plastic packet with a perforated top so it's easy to open up and grab out a pad. On the front of the packet I'm told what they are and who they are by and it looks very economy really. On the back of the packet other information given includes being given storage and disposal advice and of course contact details for Sainsbury's are given. Inside the 12 pads are lined up single file and that is that!
The Pads Themselves:
White and made from a cotton wool material covered with a thinnish sort of tissue covering these are long but not too wide. You simply pull one out of the outer wrapper, unfold it and pull off the back bit of paper to reveal a long sticky section and you gently push it on to your pants/knickers and that is that.
Unfragranced these feel like sanitary towels really and only a bit thicker than what I'd normally use. When damp though the cotton wool does clump up and feel a bit clumpy around your never regions though these do hold in any moisture as long as it is only moderate fluids of course and they do not shred.
Not bad, comfortable to wear until damp but then in that case you simply change them. They are not bad for economy incontinence pads to be fair to them and they are what they are and perform an adequate job. The really good saving grace with these is that they do stay put till you wish to remove them and of course you can't flush these so you do need to find a bin! Not bad and a good economy buy!
Only available in Sainbury's stores.
