It’s that time of the month again…
Yes ladies, I think you know exactly what I’m talking about. (boys might want to skip this entry hehe)
Mood swings, abdominal pains, bloatedness, loss of appetite, and the worst of all.. how uncomfortable the whole situation is.
You can’t wear tight bodycon dresses, you can’t do sports or jump and frolick around, and heck, sometimes you feel like you can’t even go to bed and sleep in peace because you’re paranoid about staining your sheets!
But all that’s changed for me… Ever since I received this in the mail!!!
“We can’t change periods, but we can change the way you feel about them!” - Laurier
After trying out the new Laurier Super Slimguard, I’m COMPLETELY sold and swear on never using any other similar product again!! Yes I am going to talk about periods, so don’t cringe or flinch ok!! Boys you are given permission to promptly disappear now.
Now back to my point ladies…
We are all young adults and I’m sure we can talk about this very maturely. *giggles*
No matter how much you try to avoid talking about it, you can’t deny that it happens every month.. And since no one else is willing to talk about it, well…. I will!!!! This package came at the right time (of the month), so I was able to test these out and give the Laurier Super Slimguard an honest, from personal experience review!! Take this from a girl who absolutely hates her periods and used to think that nothing could make me feel better about it.
The Laurier Super Slimguard is the thinnest napkin in the market at 1mm..
Yet 200x ultra absorbent!
Here’s their five different lengths for each girl’s individual needs!
1) Light Flow 17cm
2) Day 22.5cm
3) Day 22.5cm with Safety Gathers
4) Heavy Day 25cm
5) Night 30cm
6) Heavy Night 35cm
Now you’re probably wondering why there’s so many different types of the same product, and if you think it’s all unnecessary, you’re completely wrong!
This is not a “One Size Fits All” kind of product. We need very specific measurements and absorbency to ensure that we get maximum protection at minimum discomfort.
Here’s why!!! The four main ones I’d use most commonly would be..
If I’m having a normal light flow day, I’d use the Day time 22.5cm one for average daily activities. They have a 17cm light flow one, but I’d prefer a minimum of 22.5cm! Because of how thin and absorbent it is, it feels like it’s “barely there” – ideal for the last few days of the cycle.
But usually, I have rather heavy flow, so I think the Heavy Day 25cm would suit me better! Especially for the first four days.
When I know I’m going to have a really long and active day, with a lot of walking / running and physical movements, I’d choose the Safety Gathers because we all know what a bitch side leakage can be. Yea, it happens to you and me too, sister!!!! There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
Finally, before I go to sleep every night, I’d change into the extra long 35cm because when I’m lying down, it flows all the way to my butt. I’m sorry but there really is no delicate way to say this hahahah I am actually laughing while I’m typing this.
But yea, I LOVE SUPER LONG PADS (what?? don’t judge me!!)
I mean come on, don’t we all? You feel super protected, like nothing in the world is going to bring you down and you 100% know for sure you won’t wake up to bloody bed stains in the morning!!! 35cm ftw.
I’m amazed at how absorbent Laurier Super Slimguard is despite being CRAZILY thin.
I’ve never worn a more long lasting (because of the absorbency) and comfortable napkin before. Like I said, I love super long pads, and the other 30+cm night time ones I’ve bought from other brands in the past were always SUPER thick, “spongey” and uncomfortable, it felt like I was wearing diapers!!! I even used to get abrasions sometimes, that’s how bad it was.
This, girls, is the Laurier Super Slimguard.
I’m not gonna post a picture of a full on sanitary napkin on my blog so I’ll just take picture of it in the packet la. (it’s folded several times to fit into that packet, so it’s actually much thinner than it looks) But even while in the packet, you can see just how thin it is!! Compare it to my fingers. I have small hands. nI wore the Laurier Super Slimguard (extra long 35cm of course) to sleep last night and it rocked my socks off.
Awesomest feeling to have before you go to bed, knowing you’ll have sweet dreams and not have to wake up in the middle of the night wondering if something’s gone wrong.
It’s so thin that sometimes I even forget I’m wearing it! I love the sense of freedom, knowing I can bend, jump, run around and do any activity I desire while still feeling dry and clean. Wear sheer dresses, wear tight skirts, do whatever I desire!
My periods are not gonna stop me from having fun and you shouldn’t let yours do so either. I still don’t like having my periods (at all), but at least now I can trust in a product that will make me feel a lot better about the situation because it’s that much more comfortable.
But that’s not all I have to talk to you guys about today…
