As a woman, menstruation is a natural part of our reproductive lives. So, needless to say, choosing the right feminine protection is important. No one wants to be uncomfortable or self conscious for the whole 3 to 7 days that they are experiencing their cycle. And, accidents are definitely a way to ruin one’s day. With all that said, I have tried several different brands of feminine products over the years from Kotex, Stayfree, and Always, to store brands.
Of all the feminine napkins that I have tried, Always Infinity pads are by far the best. My sister recommended them to me, and I am so thankful. At first, I was hesitant to try them because they are more expensive. However, they are well worth the price. They are soft, and they absorb better than any of the other products I have tried. They are super thin and move with you as you move. I absolutely love them. They are so thin that you can wear them and no one else will know.
I tend to experience a medium flow, and I can go almost 8 hours without having to change them. Whenever I do experience a really heavy flow, I do have to change my pad more often, but still not as often as I did with other pads.
Always has even made a change to these super soft and absorbent pads. They have invented Always Radiant Infinity. I tried Always Radiant Infinity and compared them to the older version of Always Infinity. I can’t really tell the difference.
Both Always Radiant Infinity and Always Infinity are soft and absorbent. They both have wings that help to give you more coverage on the sides. They both are created from Infinicel, the material credited with giving them their super absorbency. Always Radiant Infinity pads do come in a prettier box and have prettier wrapping.
Are Always Radiant Infinity pads better than Always Infinity? No. The only real difference I notice was in the price. The newer version has 2 fewer pads in the box than the original which makes them a few cents higher in price. I would not purchase the newer version over the older, cheaper version. Both pads are great, but there doesn’t seem to be an important difference.
I would also offer the following advice about these pads. Because both versions are more expensive than other brands, wait until Always offers a coupon on them before making your purchase. People who have extremely heavy flows should not use either of these pads. They are incredibly thin, and despite their super absorbency, they may not provide enough coverage for those with extremely heavy cycles. I would also not recommend wearing white or other very lightly colored pants with these or any pads. Save those for tampons.
