Always Infinity Pads Review

Always Infinity

The only sanitary napkin of its kind, Always® Infinity® offers women powerful absorbency like never before. It’s made with an über-absorbent material called Infinicel™ that has the power to absorb ten times its weight, yet remains unbelievably light. With a dual Flexi-Wing® design that fits the curvature of your panty, Microdots™ designed for super-fast absorption, and an incredibly soft cover, Always Infinity hygienic pad is amazing.

Absorbency

Always Infinity pads are made with their revolutionary Infinicel material that provides super fast absorption and leak lock protection.

The absorption for the Always Infinity line include “Regular”, “Heavy”, and “Overnight” but the absorption performs the same for all pads. They all absorb 4X more than you may need and the only difference is their size.

The pad is made up of two foam layers. The top one has micro-dots and those are the holes that you see. They act as one way tunnels that quickly absorb your period, locking it in the second layer where it spreads out and is stored securely away from your body so you can feel dry and fresh.

When you go to change your pad, you can clearly see the layers in action. The top layer looks really clean like it’s barely absorbed anything but the bottom layer will look very full!

Comfort
The pad allows your skin to breathe and unlike other Always pads, it doesn’t trap any moisture or sweat. The cover works to wick away fluid to keep you feeling dry and keeps the pad from sticking to your skin. It remains comfortable and breathable throughout the wear even on a heavy day.

During Exercise: Hiking

I had committed to a hiking adventure and coincidentally gotten my period on the same day. I was going to wear a tampon but I wasn’t familiar with this trail so didn’t know how long it would be until I got a chance to freshen up again. So I went with Always Infinity.

Throughout the hike, the pad stayed in place and I experienced zero shifting or lifting. It is super thin too so I didn’t feel like I was wearing a diaper. The pad flexed with my every move and didn’t crease at all. The cover also felt very soft against my skin and didn’t stick to my skin. Thankfully, it was very breathable throughout the entire four hour hike! Even when I felt sweaty, I didn’t feel sweaty down there.

During one part of the hike, my friends and I stopped and sat down by the river to eat lunch. I cringed at the thought of sitting down on a full pad… I could already hear the squishy sound. But to my surprise, it didn’t feel squishy! My period was locked into the bottom layer, and the cover still felt soft. When I stood up, the pad still flexed with my body without sticking to my body. A+!!!

Finally at the end of our hike, I had the opportunity to change my pad in an outhouse. I know I said this already but after a four hour hike, the pad really didn’t stick to my body and didn’t seem to trap any moisture.

Recommend for: Normal to heavy flows, overnight wear, sport wear
Not recommend for: Lighter flows, save these for the heavier days!

Adhesive

The adhesive is held by the plastic wrapping and sticky enough to keep the pad in place during exercise and sport wear. They have long wings to wrap around your panties to ensure they stick and stay in place. I didn’t experience any lifting or shifting at all.

Packaging

The pads are individually wrapped coloured plastic according to their absorbencies. Regular flow is yellow, heavy is green, and orange is overnight.

  1. I’m considering these . they look cool! Any body else like them?

  2. I am a pretty big girl and these are not made for women my size. The wings do not fit around the crotch of the panties. They DO stick to my body, and break me out. They are more absorbent than average pads by a smidgen. I will have to sick with stayfree. And the adhesive doesn’t make them stay put.

  3. Dear ladies,
    If you enjoy waking up in a puddle of blood, screaming because you think someone stabbed you in the vagina, these are the pads to buy!!!
    They can’t handle a regular period. My period is regularly light and it never goes heavy. These can’t handle a light period for 9 hours while I sleep! They’re perfect! So, if you want to think someone has stabbed you in the vagina, and you’re gonna die, but when you realize you’re not , you have to clean blood off everything you were layin on, including the matress you got less than a year ago, BUY THESE!

  4. I just bought the infinity pads and I love them they are light feeling it feels like I am just only wearing underwear I don’t feel all bunched up I would defiantly buy this again and recommend it to everybody thanks so much for such a great thing

  5. Hi ladies! Why don’t you chec out this napkin that is purely cotton, no plastic at all and can absorb up to 4x the regulat napkin can during the heavy days.

  6. Do these have plastic that touches the skin? I can’t wear pads because I am so allergic to whatever plastic they use that I break out (down there!) every time. I have considered trying these since they are foam, but was concerned they might still have plastic touching. Thanks.

    • Hi Curious,

      I’m not sure if the cover is plastic but it is plastic-like and definitely not made from cotton. They are cottony soft though.

      For 100% natural cotton pads, try the Maxim or Natracare.

      xoxo,

    • Hi Curious :-) Have you considered trying cloth pads and/or menstrual cups? Many women who have issues with the plastics find relief in the soft fabrics. (The youtube channel preciousstarspads has lots of information on these if you’re interested). Alternatively, you can also get organic pads from companies like Natracare that while being more expensive actually are 100% cotton :-) good luck!

  7. I recommend these pads theyre comfortable and very absorbant! Best pads ever mad honestly! :) 5 stars!

  8. im tinking of trying these for my next period. does anyone knoe where i can get coupons?

  9. These r my fav. im wearing 1 right now
