Absorbency
When I went to change my pad, there was as much period on top as I could see on the bottom. Usually it is more on top and less on the bottom. This means that the absorbency of this pad is SUPER FAST.

I’m especially impressed with the overnight wear. I had slept on my back and my side and when I went to change my pad in the morning, there was barely any period on the back end. The pad absorbs so fast that most of it was concentrated at the center of the pad. Usually it slides down my butt and that’s where most of the leakage happens.

What I found weird was that when the center became saturated, I found that the absorption spread very little. Very little spread to the front and the back. It just kept absorbing in the center, eventually leading to it seeping over the edges. So I don’t recommend wearing this for 8+ hours overnight.

On an overnight: Just stick the pad a little further back. Recommended for < 8 hours of wear
On a heavy day: Absolutely perfect for heavy flow
On a normal day: Not recommended for normal flow, save these for the heavy days!

Comfort
U by Kotex CleanWear pads do an amazing job at not only absorbing everything but it also lets your skin breathe. Even on a heavy flow, I didn’t feel moist or sticky.

The pad is described as having Cottony Soft Side Barriers but the actual pad cover itself is not cottony soft. It is still soft, but more it is more plastic-like not cotton. Only the sides are cottony soft.

The CleanWear Cover is the perfect way to describe this pad because even after after sleeping for 10hrs, I still felt clean even though it was very obvious my pad needed a change.

Adhesive
The wings span 9.0cm and the adhesive spans 6.0cm. The adhesive sticks very well and sometimes I even had to pry the wings off my panties!!

When I first opened this pad, I was very surprised at just how wide this pad was. They are 7cm at their narrowest so I highly recommend wearing these with wider panties so the pad has enough panty to stick onto and stay in place.

The adhesive doesn’t stretch from end to end so there is a large part of the pad that doesn’t stick.

Packaging
I love that the box has close-able flap and the box looks great displayed on my washroom counter top ;).

Pads are individually wrapped in bright colourful plastic wrapping with a small strip of glue adhesive. Although this adhesive is not strong enough to be reused when discarding your pads, you can peel back the paper backing and use the adhesive residue from that.

I was very surprised at how big this pad was even when folded up. The bright packaging already screams LOOK AT ME! so I wish it was a bit smaller to make it a bit more discrete.

When wrapped, it measures 11cm by 12cm and is 0.7cm thin.
When unwrapped, it measures 28cm by 7cm – 9cm and is 0.2cm thin.

    Do you get samples to Jamaicans

  4. I’d beg to differ. since I am unable to peel off the paper without ripping the wrapper, I used the strip of glue and it worked fine.
