Review

If you liked the old U By Kotex CleanWear pads, you’ll really like the new CleanWear pads with the 3D Capture Core. It has the same great absorbency and same cover – soft and breathable plastic like cover with cottony soft sides, and is super thin and flexes well with the body. However there are a couple new changes: the 3D Capture Core and a more tapered shape.

The 3D Capture Core is a slightly raised groove around the pad’s centre that’s supposed to pull your period towards the centre and away from the sides to prevent leaks. There wasn’t any noticeable differences in absorbency compared to the old CleanWear pad though so to me it still had the same great absorbency as the old version.

U By Kotex pads are one of the wider pads (7cm at its narrowest) I’ve tried so make sure you wear your big ol granny panties with these. The adhesive is really good too so although they fit weird with panties with a small gusset, the pad stays in place and doesn’t shift around or unstick.

If you’re a small girl like me, you’ll find that the heavy pad offers more than enough coverage for night time wear. The heavy pad was enough to cover both the front and back but on the super heavy days when I can fill a pad in 4 hours, I like to wear the Overnight pads just for extra protection and peace of mind.

I wore these during a super hot heat wave in the summer and boy was that a bad idea. It’s great for a normal day but during a sweaty heat wave and a heavy flow, it trapped a lot of moisture and just felt very wet down there. I was also chafed for an entire week after my period was over :(

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.

  1. Hey Dedy, I currently use Always Radiant pads (I’m a total sucker for amazing and cute packaging LOL) and was thinking of switching or also using U By Kotex Cleanwear. Which one do you think was better? Also, for a normal day would it still chaffe you?

    • Hi Katie!

      Thanks for writing in! I love the Always Radiant Infinity pads too. I prefer the Infinity pads because I find that my skin chafes with the U By Kotex cleanwear pads. I usually chafe on the heavy days and by the time my flow is regular, I am already chafed :(. It really depends how sensitive your skin is. Let me know how it goes for you. Good luck!
