Charm pad pembalut sanitary pad kotex always menstrual pad


Our Thoughts: 

This pad felt very thick and bulky, constant presence of something in between my legs! Surprisingly, without the wings it didn't really move around even when I took a nap with it on. Very good adhesive, but potentially too sticky that when the pad folded and stuck to my skin it got a bit itchy. Absorbency was good enough for Day 1, it didn't feel damp but would not recommend for heavy bleeders. Blot test found that the pad absorbs slowly. Definitely not eco-friendly, the pad packaging was made out of plastic and individual pads were wrapped in very thick plastic too.

Pretty thick pads that sticks to the underwear and does not move. Medium absorbency, would not recommend for heavy period days due to slow absorption. Some irritation / itchiness from the adhesive. Definitely not eco-friendly.
