Writing about sanitary napkins may seem trivial, but nothing can be further from the truth, in my opinion. Though most of us ladies only need them about 7 days in each month, but during those times they are a crucial part of our daily lives, therefore, their importance should not be underestimated.
For decades I’ve used almost all the brands available in the market, and am loyal to none. Most importantly for me is that I have at least 4 sizes at my disposal – overnight long (wing, at least 28cm), maxi wing, slim non-wing and panty liners – worn at suitable periods. I confess, I am easily enticed by those that comes with free gifts such as bags or extra pads of different sizes.
Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Wing
However, at this moment in time, my favourite sanitary napkins are the Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Wing pads. I remember a time when Kotex was a generic term used to mean sanitary pads, much like colgate to mean toothpaste and Kleenex to mean tissue. Now, it has reinforced its brand name through strong marketing. Nonetheless, frankly speaking, I would not have known about Kotex Ultrathin superiority over the rest if I did not receive the free sample packs. The free samples were widely available from September – October 2014 to us ladies of all ages through Kotex websites.
I have used Kotex Soft & Smooth, together with other brands of sanitary napkins, and therefore is very interested to try out the Kotex Luxe.
What are the difference between Luxe and the usual Kotex Soft & Smooth? I’d say, Sturdy vs Slim. Practical vs Elegant design. Proactive Guard vs Surround Lock Protection. They each have their own strengths but I’d prefer the Kotex Luxe Ultrathin.
Aptly described as ‘Discreet, Ultra-Thin pads that let you wear anything you like, any time of the month!’, it’s really dependable and comfortable at the same time. It really felt soft and dry even though I wore it during my heaviest moments and for extended period of more than 12 hours. I dared to take that chance because I was at home and because I really would like to test it’s reliability.
I received one sample of the 28cm and 32cm pads. They also have 24cm pads.
I liked it so much that I went to look for them at my usual stores at the earliest opportunity. Unfortunately, when I looked for them last month, they were not available at my usual stores in KK, i.e. Giant outlets such as at 1B and Citymall. I hope that will be remedied soon.
In short, I like Kotex Ultrathin pads because:
- They are really quite slim, with a narrow design and therefore, very comfortable.
- Unlike my usual experience of itchiness and chaffing on the second or third pads, there were absolutely no chaffing nor any itchiness with Kotex Ultrathin Wing pads, despite my constant movements.
- Though they are thin, the Surround Lock Protection functions excellently to prevent side leakage – I felt dry all the time and there were absolutely no side leakage.
- No funny smells either.
Thank you, Kotex, for bringing us the wonderful experience when we really need it. 😀
