Our Thoughts: 

Pretty comfortable to wear, super thin and sleek - I wasn't constantly feeling that I was wearing a pad. Worn for about 6 hours on Day 1, absorbency was good enough for my first day, however, when we did the dab test it did not absorb as quickly as others. My only complaint was that the pad was not super sticky so it did move a bit and felt worn by the end.

It is fairly expensive but I would be willing to pay the price premium for the benefits of toxic-free pads. The packaging could be more eco-friendly, there were many layers required to unwrap.
