This #Skindependence campaign is sponsored by Well at Walgreens, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Dri-Fit isn’t only for running tops and workout pants. Just like you don’t want your workout wear to get soaked with sweat or cause chafing, Well at Walgreens pads utilize the same type of technology – the Dri-Fit™ system – to wick away moisture and eliminate friction. This line at Walgreens now has a variety of pads to empower you to regain your #Skindependence.
During my last period, I took the 7-Day challenge and tried out the Well at Walgreens feminine care products to really put them to the test. My plethora of pads included the Well at Walgreens Ultra Thin Pads featuring the Dri-Fit™ system, Well at Walgreens Long Super Ultra Thin Pads featuring the Dri-Fit™ system, Well at Walgreens Overnight Ultra Thin Pads featuring the Dri-Fit™ system and Well at Walgreens Regular Pantiliners featuring the Dri-Fit™ system.
One of my biggest fears about trying out these pads was just that…wearing a pad. I have no Mean Girls confession to make of a heavy flow and a wide-set vagina. It’s just, it’s been a while since I’ve worn a “sanitary napkin.” I’d even go as far to say AGES.
The last time I can recall wearing a pad ended up being one of the most traumatic experiences of my teenage life. I was at the stage where I had embarrassingly already started my period before all of my friends. At this point in time, my mom didn’t allow me to wear tampons so I was strictly a pad girl. It was a summer afternoon and everyone went swimming. I had my underwear secretly set up with a fresh pad for when I returned so I didn’t have to awkwardly go to the bathroom with a pad in hand. Well this completely backfired when I walked into a room of a completely shredded fresh pad on the floor. My friend’s dog (as dogs do) sniffed out the vagina of my underwear and ate out my feminine hygienic product.
Shortly after that I’m pretty sure I made the plea to my mom to switch to tampons. Since making this transition, I’ve never turned back. And I’ve continued to maintain this perception that pads are bulky and inhibiting…like your “area” can’t breath. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Well at Walgreens products, especially the Dri-Fit™ system. It left me feeling fresh and not like I was sitting in a diaper. And this time around I’ve learned my lesson to not pre-set my panties with a pad 😉
Normally my comfort zone is a popular branded plastic applicator tampon, whose name kind of rhymes with “Spandex Twirl”…it’s a product I trust and gravitate towards during that time of the month. However, after trying out these pads, I have a couple of more options to add to my repertoire. I’d say the pantiliners were light and easy for back-up/extra protection on those almost nonexistent days. And the overnight pads were great for night because I didn’t even have to think about the ominous TSS/wearing a tampon to bed. Now I feel comfortable switching it up and grabbing Well at Walgreens feminine care products featuring the Dri-Fit™ systems – especially now that I know, and have experienced, their high quality and affordable price.
