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 love these pads, work very well for me. I live in Trinidad and can’t seem to find them anymore, did they stop making them ????LL

  2. Heaviest Flow on Earth

    I, like many jumped on the bandwagon when this product first came out. EPIC FAIL! I have a ridiculously heavy flow and the overnight version of this product was not able to handle it… at all. So I went back to my faithful overnight thin maxi (flagship Always version) and was doing fine. But, then the manufacturer upped advertising for this version and I once again gave it a try since the absorption is touted as basically infallible and who doesn’t want to feel cleaner/drier during their cycle??? Poor results once again. First, this pad simply can’t handle a heavy flow, no matter what it says on the box. I feel wet all day and change this pad about 55% more than I change the normal Always overnight thin maxi (with wings) – and I change that one about 8 times/day for the first 3 days of my cycle. If I wait even a fraction longer to change this pad than the every 2 – 2 1/2 hours, I end up changing my clothes along with the pad. It’s ridiculous and in 2015 unwarranted. So next month, back to old faithful. This product is not useful for me.

  3. My periods after having a baby have been a nightmare, crazy heavy flow on the second day which makes me extra miserable after going so long without a period. I bought the overnight version of these pads hoping they would be more comfortable than the normal type of Always pads, because things have been extra sensitive down there since having a baby. Not only are they 100 times more comfortable (much softer than the regular type and so much more breathable) but they’re way less bulky and are super absorptive for heavy days and overnight. No leaks, no horrible surprise on my white sheets in the morning. My only complaint would be that the wings seem to be placed a bit off centre? Not really a big deal though, doesn’t affect performance. These are the only pads I’ll be buying from now on.

  4. I hate these pads. Overpriced and so uncomfortable. They stick to you like glue, well maybe not to you but your pants, no adjustment for being active. Not comfortable at all.

  5. I love these pads!! I am a heavy flow girl especially overnight!! Other pads just feel so uncomfortable and huge and very moist & give me rashes but infinity handled my 6 hrs of sleep with heavy flow.. I felt super great and dry in the morning. Nothing leaked anywhere.. For the first time my sheets were safe :). My only concern is the size they seem just a tiny bit short.

  6. This is the first time i have ever left a comment but i am so upset, i bought these pads for the first time to try something new. I got the heavy so i can wear them over night, when i woke up there was a pool of blood in the upper part of the pad and the lower part was sticking to my skin. When i tried to take it off my underware the whole thing fell apart. Parts of the wing and underside of the pad are still on my underware that i can’t remove. Would have been worse if it actually did absorb then would have been a bigger mess. Never again will i buy these, so disappointed.

    • Hey Shellshell!

      I’m sorry they didn’t work out for you! I would recommend you contact Always because that sounds like you got a bad batch of Infinity pads!

  7. I will not ever buy these pads again. I rarely ever rate products, but I need to make an exception for Always Infinity. I normally have heavy periods and wear two pads for coverage. I went to work today and sat down for a long period of time. I got up and blood just flowed down my leg like someone stabbed me with a knife. I immediately thought I should go to the hospital because the blood was streaming down too fast. By the time I stopped panicking and made it to the restroom, I realized that the pad did not absorb any of the blood.

    I was totally embarassed and will never ever use this product again. I cannot believe I remained loyal to the Always brand for this many years and this now happens. Unreal!!!!

    • Hi Chris,

      That sounds awful! I would really suggest you contact Always about this because it really doesn’t sound like their pad worked :(. I love their Infinity pads so I’m surprised they didn’t absorb anything. They work great for me so I hope you give them another chance. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us!

    Worst. Pads. Ever. I am totally raging on these Always pads that I have to write something about it. To help you guys. Ignore all the positive comments because I am a regular (or very athletic 14 years old girl who doesn’t have fat on her body) girl. I never used Always Infinity but I use Always ultra thin. well used infinity couple times but not my usual ones, guess what, Always Infinity and Ultra thin is the SAME! More like ”Always undependable infinity” or ”Always Ultra fat”. Always ultra thin, not so thin. It is not very thin, the pads marks are very visible. On the website, you can see that the absorbency is different according to regular flow, heavy flow or night time. Well they are all the same, just different length. I guess my everyday flow is a more than night time flow then. These pads are so tiny that I have to connect multiple pads to have a safe 3 hours without changing. And the flaps are screwed up. They are supposed to be flexible but then they are pretty screwed up and creates a huge mess. But if my regular period is more than a night time flow, how do I spend my night time? Always Maxi (the biggest one) is capable of holding it. BUT still somehow the blood goes to the end of my underwear so need to attach a pantyliner or whatever. But I need to use it because great price a Costco, and I wouldn’t take the risk to use other products.

  9. I was very disappointed with these pads and the size of package I bought of them. They absorbed fine, until I sat down, then it was a mess of blood on my clothes! I would Not recommend these pads to anyone!

  10. I like these pads, they are really absorbent and pretty comfortable. They soak up a lot and don’t leak! However, I think the other Always pads are more comfortable. Nevertheless, you should at least try these pads because they definitely work. Highly recommended.

  11. These are seriously the best pads. I bought them because I had a coupon, and I was amazed at how thing they are but so absorbent! I recommend there to every girl I know, and it doesn’t even feel like you’re sitting in your own blood! 5-stars

  12. Wow!!! These are amazing!! My only suggestion to make these even better is to have a wider version for nights. I have recommended Always infinity to all my female friends and family. Excellent product!!

  13. I tried the pantiliners at first from this particular brand (I really like Always brand) because I found them on sale. Then I had two coupons available to use from the box itself and figured I’d use one for the pads, I am not a tampon gal. I was skeptical about how thin they were at first but figured I’d at least try them. I was so surprised as to how comfortable they are and how much they endure. They are fantastic! I really like them.

  14. These pads changed my life. I was super skeptical about using them, since they are incredibly thin. I was used to wearing the huge bulky pads which had zero absorption properties. When I tried this pad, I was dumbfounded. No leaks (if any) and unbelievably absorbent! I only change this pad once a day (my flow is fairly heavy around the second day). I will say the regular ones are not that great to stop leaking at night, so I would suggest their “next size up” option if you toss and turn. Nevertheless, these pads are my holy grail.
