kotex healthy protection pad review


Our Thoughts:

This falls under what I consider as an average pad, nothing special but not completely horrible. It's pretty thin, soft and no irritation that made me feel itchy but the pad is pretty wide which makes it slightly uncomfortable. Absorbency is average but when we did the blot test, the pad does not absorb as quickly. I would say that the pad is sufficient for light to medium days. It also stays in place quite well, good for those with an active lifestyle. It is super affordable and widely available in many stores.

Blot Test:

Absorbency test after 4 teaspoons of blood.

First blot on left & second blot on right.
