I really enjoyed wearing this pad. Always is a go to pad brand for me, because it is available world wide with great recognition and quality. The pad is very thin and discreet, which is perfect for me, making it very comfortable to wear. The pad dries up instantly too (as you can see in the blot test), thanks to the gel inside the pad. Although it is effective, it contains a lot of chemicals (including the gel) that are not sustainably sourced, so it is not so great for your body or for the environment. The company does have some good CSR initiatives to give back. This brand (owned by Procter & Gamble) is widely accessible globally under different brand names including: Always (US, UK), Whisper (Asia, Australia), Lines (Italy), Orkid (Turkey), Evax/Ausonia (Spain, Portugal), Tampax (tampons).
