pembalut pad review softex daun sirih

Our Thoughts: 

This pad was not bad. It was this thick and fluffy, but still breathable. I personally prefer thinner pads with no wing (because it doesn’t feel like it’s there), so this was a bit too thick for my preference. I did like that it didn’t have a wing, and the adhesive was very sticky so it did not move around. It was not irritating or itchy, but I think it was unnecessary to add the daun sirih extract (because it’s just more chemical /artificial additives) and I always prefer my pads to be as minimal ingredients as possible (no fragrance, no chemicals). When we did the blot test, the pad’s absorption was not as good as the others so it wasn’t as dry too. It is probably better for medium day-time flow that is not too heavy. It is affordable and easily available in many stores.
