A short while ago, Always and Tampax, both Proctor and Gamble brands, came together to create a complete line of feminine care products that will appeal to each woman’s unique style. They call this line the Radiant Collection, and it includes tampons, pads, liners and wipes, all of which were designed to have a stylish new look. Both are well known brand names that have been around for years in the feminine care product world, so you can be certain that this is a quality collection.
I almost fell out laughing when I opened my VoxBox and saw that it included Always and Tampax, especially since that very morning….. well, let’s just say that the timing was perfect! So I open the VoxBox and there on the bottom was a box with a cute little carry bag inside that was filled with Always and Tampax products along with a coupon for each product. I love the little bag, it is very bright and cheerful and is the perfect size to fit in my purse. Inside the bag was samples of 4 different products: 1 package of 3 Always Radiant Incredibly Thin liners, 1 Always Radiant Infinity pad and 2 Tampax tampons, one regular and one super.
First off, the tampons. I like the packaging of the tampons because they have an easy-to-open, resealable wrapper. Instead of tearing off the end of the package, you just peel back this sticker-like thing on the wrapper and removed the tampon. Since it is resealable, it makes for cleaner disposal of the applicator. No more wrapping toilet paper around and around it before throwing it in the trash! The applicator was comfortable and easy to use, and I found that both provided good protection without any leaks. I will be honest here though and admit that they were not very comfortable compared to the brand I regularly use. The best way I know how to describe it is that each one seemed a little longer than necessary and I could tell it was there. I honestly do not think I am going to change brands. Please remember that every one’s body is different, and you may find that they are comfortable to you.
Both the pad and the panty liners I liked a lot more. The Always Radiant Incredibly Thin liners lived up to their name in that they are so very thin it’s almost like they are not even there! They were very comfortable and absorbent. They also have such a flexible design that I can see how they will work well with any style of panty.
The Always Infinity pad is made of a newer material that is advertised to conform to each individual shape. I was kind of skeptical about that claim, but sure enough, it was quite comfortable and didn’t get all squished up like I have seen some do! It also had those wing things that help to hold it in place and provide protection against leaks. It also offered great protection for quite awhile, and I have to admit it was not as uncomfortable as a lot of other pads I have used in the past.
So to sum it up, the Always and Tampax Radiant collection is a stylish and unique line of feminine care products. While the tampons worked very well as far as protection is concerned, they were not very comfortable in my opinion. Keep in mind though, every one’s body is different, so you may find that they are comfortable to you. The pads and liners both stayed in place, were comfortable in that they were thin enough to not be too terribly noticeable, and they both worked very well.
I do know that these products are very reasonably priced, and you can easily find coupons to help you save even more. They can be found at any grocery, drugstore or mass merchandiser. If you want to learn more about the Radiant collection, you can check out both the Always website and the Tampax website.
I received this product for free for the purpose of review. I was not compensated in any way, and all opinions expressed are my own.
