Review

I’ve reviewed the U By Kotex CleanWear pads with 3D Capture Core before and U By Kotex just released a newer version of this pad with a new cover called Xpress DRI.

I noticed a slight improvement in absorbency with the new Xpress DRI cover. (I didn’t notice any improvement when the 3D Capture Core was introduced.) Absorption was a little bit faster but if I were to quantify it, it is really only a 0.5 point improvement. When I change my pad – there is as much absorbed on top as there is on the bottom which is a good indicator that my period is being pulled away from my body.

However, the new pad still has the same cover – soft and plastic like but traps moisture and sweat when it gets warm. I wore this on a normal day and it still made me chafe a bit :(. I had to switch over to tampons for a bit to let my skin breathe and heal.

Regular:
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.

Heavy:
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.

Overnight: This one is pretty big but you will be surprised at just how thin it is!
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.

Summary : If you're a fan of the U By Kotex CleanWear line, you'll love the Xpress DRI cover - same soft cover with faster absorption. However, the cover traps moisture and chafed my skin :(

  1. I agree with the chafing factor. Not meant for the active woman for daytime use. Switched back to a thicker pad. More comfortable and no chafing.
