Each of our Freshlock, Drylock and Maxi non-scented pads have been designed with your needs in mind - super absorbent and super comfortable. If you prefer thick or thin pads, we have the pads for you and your period.
Ultra-thin pads with a super soft cover, stay-put-wings and containing our unique Freshlock ingredient to help you stay fresh for up to 8 hours.
Ultra slim pads with a special Drylock cover to keep you dry, fresh and comfortable throughout your period.
Lil-Lets Super Soft ultra pads with wings have a super soft cover for extra comfort, micro-gel beads that lock in fluid for all over absorption and stay put wings for perfect pant protection.
Pads (otherwise known as sanitary towels) are usually what you first try using when your period arrives.But with lots of choice out there, you might not know which ones are right for you.
There are two types of pads:
They contain fluff, almost like cotton wool underneath their top layer to absorb the liquid.
These contain a paper like sheet that contains special material that turns to gel as it soaks up liquid.
Droplet symbols on the outside of the pack are there as a quick way of showing you how absorbent the pads (towels) are. The more droplets the more absorbent they'll be and they're more likely to be longer in length too.
Sometimes they've got a wider section at one end that can be worn at the front or the back of your pants depending on how you sleep. Just like our Lil-Lets FRESHlock night pads.
Although pads can be worn for up to 8 hours,you may want to change them every 3 - 5 hours or when you visit the toilet.
If you notice leaks on your underwear or clothes, then you might want to try a higher absorbency or longer pad.
If you’re finding there's very little blood on the pad, then maybe you should go down to a lighter or smaller pad.
When your flow becomes very light at the end of your period, try using a liner for very light protection.
Open the wrapper and fold the pad out flat.
Peel the pad away from the wrapper and/or backing paper (the back of the pad should feel sticky). You might need to hold onto the back paper to make it easier.
Position it in your pants (for long and night pads the back is wider).
If there are extra flaps, remove the tab to reveal the sticky area on the wings and fold these wings around and underneath your underwear to hold it in place and keep it secure.
