Kotex Natural Balance Lightdays Pantiliners Review

Kotex Natural Balance Light Days Pantiliners

What a chameleon. Whether you need protection on light days, backup support, or just to feel fresh every day, pick up a box of our regular liners. Features like no artificial fragrances and a touch of natural cotton let your protection blend seamlessly into your day.

Absorbency
These liners absorb really well for both discharge and period. The wavy pattern on the cover actually works to guide your period away from the sides to avoid leaks. You can even see your period follow the pattern like in the picture below.

However on most of the liners, I found the wavy pattern was a bit off and the border was missing on some of it which can affect leaks.

Comfort
I tried this liner throughout my entire cycle and loved it! It has a touch of cotton so it feels just like your cotton panties and it’s barely noticeable, like I’m not wearing anything at all.

The cover is highly breathable, feels dry and soft even after its absorbed my period. I felt very clean with this liner because the cover was always dry even on after absorbing some of my period.

There’s also a hint of aloe and Vitamin E on the cover to nourish your skin. It’s not noticeable at all though. It doesn’t smell and I didn’t notice any difference from another liner that didn’t have it.

Recommend for: Everyday wear, light discharge, heavy discharge, spotting, tampon back up
Not recommend for: Heavier flows, use a pad instead

Adhesive

The adhesive is a bit weird. When you first peel it off the paper backing it doesn’t feel that sticky but the liner sticks really well after you wear it. I had to really peel it off my panties when I went to change it.

On the Kotex website, many women have reported issues with the adhesive that isn’t sticky enough or it is so sticky that it tears their panties when they try to peel the liner off. I haven’t experienced issues like that but if you have, please feel free to share your experience in the comments section.

Packaging

The packaging is nothing special. They’re simply stacked in a cardboard box with a paper backing. With the dozens of reviews on their website, these seem to be a fan favorite and I bet they will be even more popular if they offered them individually wrapped for on the go use.

Summary : Perfect for light to heavy pantiliner protection from daily wear to light period and tampon back up wear. The cottony soft cover feels dry to the touch even after absorption and the wavy design on the cover really works to guide your period away from the edges. Some women have had issues with the adhesive and the wavy pattern always seems to be a bit off so it's a hit or miss there.

U By Kotex Curves Regular Pantiliners Review

U By Kotex Curves Liners

Get soft protection that’s great for lighter flow days in four colors and three patterns. Since you know your period can be super light sometimes, U by Kotex Curves® Liners help protect your undies from surprises and last-minute spotting.

Absorbency
The liner worked best on my light period days or as a tampon back up. It didn’t work as well for my discharge though. It works well to pull liquid away from the body but it didn’t work well with my discharge which is more like paste than it is liquid.

Absorption is fast and I found that the curvy grooves on the cover really helped to guide my period away from the edges and prevent leaks.

Comfort
This liner is my least favorite product from the U By Kotex line. I’ve never had a problem with the CleanWear cover but this liner irritated my skin and made me feel very itchy. It didn’t let my skin breathe at all and it trapped a lot of moisture which made the liner stick to my skin. My discharge took longer to dry too.

After one or two hours of wear, I started to feel moist down there and before the end of the day I felt really uncomfortable and dirty down there. It didn’t make me feel fresh at all.

Recommend for: Spotting, tampon back up
Not recommend for: Vaginal discharge, Ladies with sensitive skin, beware!

Adhesive
Like the rest of the U By Kotex product line, this liner has a strong adhesive and combined with its flexibility, the liner works really well to move and flex with my body’s movements while staying perfectly in place. It stuck very well and I didn’t experience any lifting from the sides.

Packaging

U By Kotex Curves Regular Liners feature their signature cute and colorful packaging with patterns of paisley and leopard spots.

GladRags Cloth Pantiliner Review

GladRags Cloth Pantiliner

  • Made from comfortable cotton flannel and super absorbent terry cloth for maximum protection
  • Zero plastics means they’re highly breathable and great for women with allergies or chemical sensitivities
  • Lasts for years to help you save up to $300 within 5 years
Absorbency

The liners are made of 100% cotton kind of like the cotton flannel pajamas are made of and they absorb just like cotton panties do. There isn’t much absorbing or any pulling down and fluid locking action going on. Most of my discharge or period stays on top and dries there.

The liner offers light to medium protection. There’s no leakproof layer so I wouldn’t recommend this for your period or as a tampon back up on a heavy day as it can seep through and leak onto your panties or worse, your pants.

Comfort
The liner is highly breathable and it never sticks to me or makes me feel sweaty. They are 100% cotton so they offer the same comfort as cotton panties. Because they are so breathable, I find that any discharge or period dries really fast so I never feel wet and uncomfortable down there.

You’ll have to put in a little extra effort when using GladRags reusable cloth pantiliners. You will need to remember to carry a storage bag if you choose to change it, another pantiliner to change into, and you’ll have to remember to wash them the same day to avoid any staining.

After washing them, they lose some of their shape and look a bit wrinkly but this doesn’t affect it’s performance.

Recommend for: Vaginal discharge, light spotting
Not recommend for: Heavy tampon back up, use a pantiliner with a water proof backing instead

Adhesive
The pantiliner has no adhesive and is kept in place by a snap button. It does a poor job at actually keeping the liner in place. Wearing it throughout the day, the liner would migrate further and further towards my bum.

When I showed my mom these liners, her first concern was that sitting on the snap button would be highly uncomfortable! But fortunately, you can’t feel the snap button so rest assured, even if the liner doesn’t stay in place, at least it’s comfortable!

Packaging

Gladrags cloth pantiliners come in small cardboard box but aren’t meant to be reused for storage. I just store mine in my underwear drawer.

Always Xtra Protection Regular Daily Liners Review

Always Xtra Protection Pantiliners

Always® Xtra Protection panty liners help you feel clean and comfortable for up to ten hours. The LeakGuard™ Core helps absorb fluid deep inside the pantiliner. The inner layer guides fluid quickly into the core, helping to lock it away and keep you dry. Always pantyliners have adhesive to help them stay in place and the soft outer cover on top provides a comfortable feel to the skin.

Absorbency

The liner has medium to heavy absorbancy and is meant for daily wear, spotting, as a tampon back up, or for light incontinence wear. They’re meant to keep you feeling fresh for up to ten hours so the absorbency on these are heavy but I never feel fresh wearing the same liner for ten hours. Instead, I would just save these for the heavier days.

Absorption is fast and feels dry to the touch. There is no difference in absorption between the purple sides and the white center. It’s just a design.

Comfort
The pantiliner is unscented and has Odor-lock protection to continuously neutralize odors throughout the whole duration of your wear. I found that it actually did make a difference and after a whole day’s wear of spotting, I noticed that my period didn’t smell like anything. The breathability is okay but many times I feel like it’s sticking to me or it feels more moist than usual down there. It traps a bit of sweat so it is a bit uncomfortable.

The protection is medium to heavy so I found these perfect for days when I’m ovulating (when my discharge is at its heaviest), as a tampon back up, when I’m spotting and during my light period days. When I wore this as a tampon back up and on my light days, I found that the absorption was fast and found almost as much period on top of the liner as I did on the bottom so I didn’t have to worry about leaks.

The cover is very soft but this liner traps a bit of sweat so often times my skin feels moist or I feel that the liner is sticking to me. The liner does have a lot of structure to it so even after a day’s wear, the liner doesn’t look all beat up. The sides didn’t fold over and I didn’t experience any lifting. It stayed in place and I didn’t experience any shifting even when I was running in stretchy panties.

Recommend for: Heavy discharge, spotting, tampon back up, light incontinence, panties with a full crotch coverage
Not recommend for: Every day wear, choose a lighter liner instead, panties with small gussets

Adhesive

The liner stuck very well onto my cotton panties and I didn’t experience any lifting from the sides. I was quite impressed that the adhesive performed well even on stretchy panties.The pantiliner has some structure to it so it’s not very flimsy and combined with the edge to edge adhesive, the liner manages to stay in place even when my panties are stretching and flexing.

Also with it’s wide width and thicker structure, it doesn’t work with with small gussets. Wear these with panties that have full crotch coverage.

Packaging

Always Xtra Protection Daily Liners come in their unique cardboard box with a flip top cover for easy use and storage. Liners are neatly stacked and have a paper backing to indicate their strong adhesive backing.

Always Xtra Protection Daily Liners measure:
17.6cm long by 7.5cm to 5.1cm wide

Maxim Ultra Thin Contour Pantiliners Review

Maxim Ultra Thin Contour Pantiliners

  • Leakage Control Channels help direct liquid to the center of the pad to protect against leaks.
  • Liquid Locking Absorbent Core to secure against leaks
  • Fragrance Free helps prevents the risk of irritation
  • Biodegradable means these liners decompose more easily
  • Hypoallergenic pantiliners are irritation free because of the breathable qualities of 100% cotton. This means no more itching, even for those with sensitive skin
  • Synthetic Free for a softer, irritation free, plastic-less feel and
    real breathable cotton experience
Absorbency

The liner has light absorbancy and is meant for daily wear, spotting, or as a tampon back up. The protection is light and but still suitable for heavy discharge days. The liner absorbs fast and spreads out well, which is one of the qualities of cotton liner. I like that it spreads out well so it doesn’t oversaturate one spot and just feel too wet which is something I’ve experienced with other liners and pads.

Comfort

The pantiliner is unscented and the highly breathable; afterall it is 100% cotton. It feels soft and dry all day and I never feel sweaty or dirty. For girls that are sensitive down there, you may want to give this organic cotton liner a try.

Recommend for: Daily discharge, tampon back up, light spotting, girls who are sensitive down there
Not recommended for: Regular flows, use a pad instead, sport or active wear, days when you are expecting a heavy flow or anticipating heavy period

Adhesive

There are four thin strips of adhesive but it leaves the sides empty. This made the sides lift very easily and fold over even from just my daily movements so I wouldn’t recommend this for active or sport wear. The parts with adhesive stay down but the rest of the liner gets bunched up. This would be a poor pantiliner choice if you are anticipate a heavy period, this liner wouldn’t protect your panties from leaks!

Packaging

The Maxim contour liners come in a small white box and are individually wrapped with a strip of glue adhesive. The small strip of glue is not strong enough to be reused to discard your pantiliner but you can peel back the paper backing and use the adhesive residue from that.

When wrapped, it measures:
9cm by 6.5cm and is 0.2cm thin.
When unwrapped, it measures:
15cm by 5.5 – 6.5cm and is ~0.1cm thin

Always Radiant Incredibly Thin Liners

Always Radiant Incredibly Thin Liners

Daily freshness. Artfully designed. Our thinnest and most flexible protection, Always Incredibly Thin Radiant panty liners have edges that fold to fit multiple panty styles comfortably. Ideal for an everyday clean feeling, light-flow days, and tampon back-up protection.

Absorbency
It has a swirly flower design but when it absorbed my period, it didn’t follow the flower design or guide it away from the sides. When I wore this on a day where I was expecting my period, it leaked onto my panties.

It’s meant for light everyday protection and its flexible sides make it suitable for thongs too so this liner isn’t meant for anything heavy.

Comfort
The cover allows my skin to breathe and is super soft. Even the sides that are meant to fold around your panties are super soft and flexible so there’s no itchy scratchy feeling or rubbing against my thighs. Very comfortable and barely noticeable.

After wearing one with regular panties, they looked a bit beat up at the end of the day. The edges were bunched up and the little pieces of the cover were coming off but the liner still performed well. You wouldn’t really notice unless you were looking at it.

Recommend for: Light to medium discharge, tampon back up on light to regular flow days
Not recommended for: Tampon back up for heavy days or days when you anticipate a heavy flow

Adhesive
This liner has all over adhesive so rest assured, it’s going to stay in place. Even when you wrap it around your thong, this liner sticks really well. I would recommend you stick the ends on top of each other for that stay put protection.

Packaging
The liners come in a cardboard box but aren’t individually wrapped. I always need to freshen up when I wear thongs so my only wish is for these to come out in to-go packaging!

Carefree Thong Pantiliners Review

Carefree Thong Pantiliners

Sometimes, you don’t want to compromise your style to accommodate your pantiliner. That’s why we created CAREFREE® THONG Liners with stay put wings to keep your liner in place. Designed specially to fit your skimpiest, sexiest undies, CAREFREE® THONG Liners have end-to-end adhesive to eliminate bunching and keep you moving.

Absorbency
This pantiliner offers medium protection and is perfect for daily to heavy discharge or as a tampon back up. I find that most of the absorption occurs on the skinny part of the liner, so I like to stick the liner a little further back so I have more liner to absorb my discharge.

I also recommend this for days when you are expecting your period but still want to wear your sexy panties or prefer to wear a thong. The Carefree thong liner should be able to hold up until you find a pad.

Comfort
I feel clean and dry when I use these and the pantiliner allows my skin to breath so even after absorbing discharge, I didn’t feel wet down there and it didn’t not stick to my body. Even though the liner is flexible and the cover is soft, I still noticed it when I wore it because the cover is a bit poofy.

The best part about wearing this is that even after a full day of wearing a thong and going about my day, bussing, running around campus, the skinny end of the liner was still in place! It didn’t shift, lift, or fold at all! That’s how every thong pantiliner should perform!

The paper backing suggests that it may have the Carefree’s odour control ingredient “acti-fresh” but this is not advertised on the box. I emailed Carefree and they confirmed that the Carefree thong pantiliners in fact do not contain acti-fresh despite what it says on the paper backing. (Actifresh is an ingredient from Carefree meant to deordorize odours and keep you smelling fresh.)

Recommend for: Tampon back up, light to heavy vaginal discharge, active/sport wear
Not recommended for: Periods

Adhesive
The edge to edge adhesive is A+++! The entire backside of this liner is sticky so the liner to conform to whatever shape you want to fit thongs of all shapes. The wings did an excellent job keeping the liner in place. I didn’t have to worry about it shifting out of place even after an entire day!

Packaging
The liners are packaged in a flip top box with the narrow side pointing towards the top. The paper backing even has a little tab to help you peel off the backing. How thoughtful :)!

My only wish is for these to come wrapped for on the go use!

The pantiliner measures 16.5cm by 6cm – 1.3cm and is ~0.1cm thin.

Natracare Organic & Natural Curved Pantiliners Review

Natracare Curved Liners

This new organic and natural panty liner is made from certified organic cotton and renewable natural materials. Its advanced curved shape design is soft, absorbent and breathable. Conveniently wrapped in their own paper pockets this panty liner offers a discreet and practical solution for women wishing to carry their panty liners in their bags.

These individually wrapped panty liners are totally chlorine free and do not contain any plastics, perfumes, dyes or fragrance making them friendly on your skin and to the environment.

Absorbency
The Natracare pantiliner has medium absorbancy making it perfect for everyday wear or as a tampon back up. The absorption is fast, feels dry afterwards, and still feels soft even after absorption.

Because Natracare products are completely plastic-free, the backside of this liner doesn’t have a plastic backside. I’m not sure what material it is, but it reminds me of the see through paper-based material used for the window of paper envelopes. Not to worry though, this material is definitely plastic-like qualities and doesn’t allow liquid to seep through.

Recommended for: Everyday protection, vaginal discharge, tampon back up, spotting
Not recommended for: Periods, sport or active wear

Comfort
The Natracare liners breathe just like cotton panties (afterall they are made of organic cotton!) At first it is barely noticeable when worn but after wearing it for a couple hours, I find that the absorbent cotton material bunches up and it doesn’t lay flat anymore. The liner is flexible but it doesn’t bounce back to hold its original shape. This makes the absorbency less effective as some parts became bunched up with cotton and it didn’t lay flat against my skin anymore.

I got my sister who has sensitive skin to try these and they didn’t irritate her at all. In fact, she liked them so much, she went out to buy a box for her self afterwards.

Adhesive
The adhesive is okay. It does its job at first but after the liner bunches up and loses its shape, it starts to lift from the sides too. Overall, I got a good 4 hours of wear from this before it bunched up so much I had to change it.

Packaging
I received a sample so I don’t have the original packaging to review.

When unwrapped it measures 15.0cm by 5 – 7cm and is 0.3cm thin

Carefree Original Pantiliners Review

Carefree Original Liners

The classic you know (and love). CAREFREE® ORIGINAL liners have a rectangular shape, a cottony soft cover,* and stay put adhesive to keep the liner in place.
*Product does not contain cotton

Absorbency
This Carefree Original liner is meant for light to medium absorption which I assume is daily discharge, tampon back up, or spotting. I found that it absorbed quickly and I felt dry and fresh too.

The cover itself has no leakage protection, no ridges or grooves to guide fluid away from the edges. The cottony cover wraps around the edges and overlaps to to the back side of the liner. I imagine it would be easy for a surprise period to seep through the liner and onto your panty. Because of this, I would actually recommend this for vaginal discharge instead of as a tampon back up.

Recommended for: Everyday protection, vaginal discharge
Not recommended for: Tampon back up, periods due to risk for leakage

Comfort

Together with Carefree’s odour control ingredient, Acti-Fresh, and the cottony quilted breathable cover, the liner felt soft like my panties and I felt clean and fresh all day. It didn’t trap moisture or warmth and it didn’t stick to me even after a long day’s wear.

The liner is a bit rigid and not very flexible. After four hours of daily wear with some walking, the sides had folded up and didn’t bounce back into shape. I couldn’t even push them back or unfold the liner back into shape. The adhesive was too weak so my panty shifted around after some time.

Adhesive
The adhesive is on a seperate layer of plastic attached to the liner. This style seems a bit outdated especially when all the other competitors are using a one piece liner with the adhesive directly on the liner but it does its job!

Overall I would say the adhesive is poor. The adhesive doesn’t go edge to edge so a part of the cottony liner is exposed at the bottom and it can easily peel off, crease and fold as you move. If you are caught with a heavier flow, your period can seep through the sides and onto your panties.

Packaging
It’s packaged in a simple cardboard box with a easy close flap that makes it easy for storage.

The box measures 15.5cm by 10.5cm by 11.5cm
The pantiliner measures 5.0cm by 15cm and is 0.2cm thin.

U By Kotex Tween Combo Pack Pads & Pantiliners Review

U By Kotex Tween Combo Pack

Pantiliners and pads in one box make the perfect first period kit. There’s something for every day – liners for “just in case” days and pads for serious protection, both designed for younger girls. Both products feature vibrant new patterns and colors full of tween attitude. U by Kotex Tween* Liners are only available in the Combo Pack.

Introducing new pads with heavy flow absorbency in a smaller size than our regular pads, for younger girls. U by Kotex Tween* pads come in vibrant colors and patterns, have a special cover to ensure they stay dry, plus an absorbent core to lock fluid away and help prevent leaks.

Absorbency

Pads
 The pad is extra absorbant and absorbs just like a heavy pad. The absorption is fast and keeps you feeling dry and comfortable.

Despite its heavy absorption, I wouldn’t recommend this for overnight wear because it’s too short and you wouldn’t get enough protection in the back. For overnight wear, you may want to try their U By Kotex CleanWear Heavy Flow pads instead.

Pantiliners
 The pantiliner has medium absorbency making it perfect for everyday wear for vaginal discharge, spotting, or as a tampon back up. The absorption is fast and feels dry afterwards.

The liner is tween sized, so for bigger girls this may not cover your entire panty. You may want to choose for their regular size liners instead.

Comfort

Pads
 This pad is flexible but I might be a bit too big for this pad because I found the pad a bit too small which made the pad crease a lot. (I have never experienced any creasing with regular sized U By Kotex pads.) Creasing is when a pad forms to the shape of your body and creates wells and pockets where your period accumulates.

Like the rest of the CleanWear pads, this pad has cottony soft side barriers but the actual pad cover itself is not cottony soft, it’s more plastic like. Only the sides are cottony soft.

Overall I felt very dry and clean when using this pad. The breathability is great and the adhesive is excellent. I would have loved to use these pads when I had my first period.

 The pantiliner is very flexible and always bounced back into shape. The cover is breathable and soft and barely noticeable when worn. I feel clean and dry when I wear this even after all day wear.

Adhesive

Pads & Pantiliners
 U By Kotex Tween liners and pads are about 1-2 cm smaller than the regular sizes (which is actually a pretty big difference) so I recommend wearing these with smaller sized panties. So far I have found that all the adhesive on U By Kotex products to be excellent. It sticks super well and sometimes I have to pry it off my panties.
