Review: Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Pads

Have you ever wondered when did sanitary pads were being invented?
Well, I did. In fact, I feel that disposable sanitary pads are the greatest invention for women in the world. Imagine, after puberty, we, girls will menstruate. Menstruation is a process of shedding of the endometrium of the uterus, thus, releases blood.

My 1st time...?
Not too long ago (actually about 10yrs ago), I experienced my 1st period. It was painless but I thought I was sick. I let it on for 1 week, then i told my mom "I'm sick and I think I'm dying".
Mom said, "why?"
I replied, "My urine got blood. Even never urine also got blood."
Mom went into the her room and got me a Kotex, and said " You period-lah, bodoh"
(Note: my mom is not scolding me stupid, but just a part of language we used at home)

Two months ago, i received a parcel. Santa Kotex brought me and early X-MAS pressent! *YAY*

I opened the box and WOW...

The brand new... KOTEX LUXE greeted my eyes. and WOw....

I'm sure, every girls in the world have their own "period" story. Period or menstruation is an embarrassing scenario. I felt ashamed. I will get my pads from mom's cupboard, until one day mom asked me to buy my pads.

NO WAY! I was determined not to buy pads because it's embarrassing.
1. Minimarket cashier was a man. Unless its his wife on duty, I'd go home empty handed.
2. If i buy in supermarket, i'd take pads the last item before going to cashier. I can't bear taking the pads in my trolley and walked all around.
3. Pads must be in separated plastic bags. I can only tolerate if the pads are wrapped in black plastic bags.

Now, I'm no longer ashamed to be a grown up lady. I'm proud to be one too!
Kotex Luxe Ultrathin pads seem to bring sanitary pads one level ahead. Many would think sanitary pads as a disposable item, and thus, doesn't not need to be attractive. Well, that would be the thinking of the 1990's.

For me, having a comfortable and absorbing pads is most important. But think about it? Why can't period be fun? Why can't we look forward for period every month?

It's something we cannot run away from every month, right?

So, why not have a beautiful pads, which is comfortable and absorbant?

It seems like Kotex Luxe Ultrathin has found the answer:
  1. Fusion Technology
    1. A revolutionary combination of dry-net and cotton-like covers to help you get the dryness of net and the softness of cotton.
  2. MicroMax® Core
    1. Super absorbent ultrathin core to help maximize protection.
  3. Longer Wings
    1. Provide better side coverage that helps prevent side leaks and stains.
  4. Anti-leak channels
    1. Channel fluid within the pad to help prevent leakage all around.
Being given the privillege to review the Kotex Luxe, I've decided to run an experiment.

Of course I'm worried about this "pretty pads". I want to know whether is it the suitable pads for me. My pads must have this characteristics:


50ml of liquid is used to represent blood. An average of human blood being secreted out is approximately 30ml/day.

So, after pouring about 30ml approx. this pads have been filled with the liquid. That is why it is advisable to change your pads at least 2 to 3 times a day. Not only to prevent leakage, but for hygienic purposes as well.

Despite the pretty design, and being ultrathin, the comfort and absorbant of the Kotex Luxe Ultrathin Pads is good.

Best of all, there's 6 different designs for Kotex Luxe Ultrathin. Periods will no longer be boring, and dreadful!

Another thing that is cool? The individual packaging of the pads are very bright, colourful and there's no need for me to hide it in my pocket if i need to replace my pads.. hahaha =)

Well done Kotex Luxe!

It's a good effort for Kotex to bring up designed pads. HAHA..well finally there's a thing that is viewable by the wearer herself only.
