Since my teens, I had problems with women's consumables. For years I was looking for reusable products. Unfortunately, in Greece they are not so widespread. All the products I found on the internet were always very expensive and the cost of transportation to Greece raised the price.
Also, when I discussed it with my friends, I heard negative comments. So I stopped hoping for better days on my periods.
Now I am 24 years old and I face many problems, especially when period and job coincide. Fortunately, I found an ad on Facebook for the 'Eco Period' and decided to take a look. Prices were affordable, and shipping free.
Then I started looking at other sites again, but I didn't like anything and it wasn't affordable for my pocket. So I came back HERE again.
Just yesterday my products
(3 of L, 3 of S, 6 of M size) arrived and today I use them. I was already washing the first reusable pad.
Their sense in the body is incredible. They are a little thicker than ordinary pads, but it doesn't bother me because I always wear long blouses on such days.
The stain is easily removed with cold water and they clean perfectly even in hand washing.
Honestly, it's one of the best purchases I have ever made.
Thank you so much for these wonderful products.
I was hesitant, I was scared, maybe I felt disgusted. All this passed this morning I tried them.
Girls don't think about it!
Buy them now!
I wanted to wait a few months before reviewing, so I could get a good feel for the product. There's no doubt I'll never go back to disposable pads; I tried these because I felt guilt for the environment every time I threw a pad away, so it's great to finally be able to help Mother Nature out. They are also super absorbent, no problems worrying about leaks. It would be nice however if there was a pad that extended into the 'winged' areas a bit more, as I often find blood on the wings; to compensate I had to order extra large pads to go with my normal size as there was no other option, I'm very petite and have a light-regular flow each month so having the use the huge ones wasn't ideal! I understand there are strips available if anyone thinks it's just the pad moving, but I had the same thing when using the old disposables too (maybe I just sit/walk weirdly?! Who knows) which were of course sticky, so might be nice to have a different shaped pad for women like myself (the pads will move a fair bit if your pants are a bit loose though, so make sure they're not old/stretched and nice and snug). My largest critique though would have to be the cleaning; no matter how quickly you rinse the pads and then throw them in the cold wash, a mark is always left. I've never had to use Vanish so much until now, which is the only thing that makes a slight improvement. Could more research go into a better fabric? I do understand though that this contradicts the absorbent quality, which is very important. Overall though I'm really glad I invested in these, and the ecopanties are fantastic too, I even converted a couple of friends. Any problems seem minor when I think about all the good these are doing for the planet.
Been looking for a washable option to get off disposable ones. Really happy I tried this. I really love it.
I love these. They are breathable, absorbent, and comfy.
I cannot wear tampons, at all for a few reasons so i have to use pads and by the end of my period every month im irritated and have a bad rash/ yeast infection. This time i didn't have any of that. You don't notice them, they don't hold smell and you can wear it all day. Love love love
These are comfortable, sleek and easy to take care of. I was surprised at how long it took me to consider and make the switch to reusable pads. They are so comfortable, I hardly notice I am wearing one. I have not had a leak, even during sleep. I would 1000% recommend to anyone making the switch to reusable as they are simple and inexpensive (comparatively). YAY FOR HELPING THE PLANET!
Omg I'm never going back to disposable pads. These vag pillows are the softest thing my vagina ever touched. I use cloth diapers on my daughter because I think they're more comfortable for her so it was the logical thing for me to try these out too. Disposable pads give me rashes but once you get used to these being slightly thicker you can't even tell they're there because of how soft they are. I'm currently wearing them while having a miscarriage and I have not once leaked even with extremely heavy bleeding, not even at night. They stay in place great and are easy to see which one I need since each size is a different pattern.
If you're even contemplating buying these it's obvious that you can't be afraid of touching blood. Clean up is simple, just rinse them until water runs clear then throw in the wash. As a cloth diapering mama I've had to deal with a lot worse ♀️
These hold more than you would expect. It has the perfect balance of heavier and lighter pads to get me through my cycle.
They are durable and easy to wash and have never stained any of the towels I wash them with. I just throw them in the shower with me and ring them out before tossing them in my hamper until wash day.
For years, I was wasting money on crappy plastic pads that barely held up. Then I came across the concept of reusable pads. It sounds gross at first, but it's actually pretty cool. The first couple I bought were from another company.... and ridiculously expensive. About $40 or so for two. Then I stumbled upon this gold mine. Look, you're getting six different pads for barely $45. And the prints are super cute! Who knew I'd be smiling when I put on a pad?
These are really truly amazing. I am not sure how to scientifically explain it, but I am pretty sure using these help to shorten my periods and lighten my flow.
These are very easy to clean. I hand wash so I can use them again the next day, but if anyone is weird around doing so, you can machine wash. I recommend air drying, or tumble dry on low/delicate.
these are also discreet. For those who use pads instead of tampons, you know what I mean. That "bulk" or "bunch up" that happens on plastic pads doesn't happen with these.
And it helps with odor control.
Overall, these are just great. I keep trying to force my sister and cousins to use it because its "healthier for your body and more natural blah blah blah" but really it just takes a lot of the stress, mess, and pain when its that time of the month.
Just give it a try, trust me!
We are new to these. My daughter was having issues with the disposable ones so decided to give these a try! She really like them, are easy to wear, and comfortable, and soft. Beautiful bright colors too! And come with a very cute bag!! And when wrapped they look like small coin bags, very discreet!
After decades of using disposable pads, I was very skeptical about cloth pads. They are so so absorbent, and I have no more problems with overflow (probably a little less) than I ever had with disposable pads.
Wish I had not waited more than 20 years to try reusables!!
They never leak, never feel wet, stay in place (although I'm certain the style and fit of underwear is important to this), don't smell like disposables do in a short time, and are easy to care for.
I've gone back and forth for years about buying reusable pads... I finally did it and this is what I purchased. After my first cycle with these, I'm beyond satisfied. Looking at them you'd think they were bulky, hot and awkward as I did. However, the material is so absorbent that they actually keep you cooler then a traditional single use pad! The snap hold them in place.
Ok. I was very nervous getting these but after the 2nd use of these pads I would absolutely buy them again never going back to the disposable pads.
I was SUPER sceptical about trying these but after using them, 1 to 3 periods a month, since November (2019) I am starting to question if disposable pad companies are made up of money hungry people!!
I did not expect to love these as much as I do. A few years back I suffered a miscarriage and ever since then I’ve had very heavy periods every month, each lasting about 8-9 days. I got this pack thinking it could be a good experiment. I’m never going back to disposable pads. I feel like I could wear the large one for two of my heavy days straight and never bleed through. I have never trusted my menstrual products like this before. I know that I’m always covered and that peace of mind is something money can’t buy.
I love these! They are super comfortable and I love that they are reusable. I don't worry at all overnight or during long days at work.
I am a first time user of reusable pads & I am glad that I tried this product. I dont plan on going back to disposables. These are very comfortable.
I recently decided to stop using tampons (based on a terrifying documentary about the dangers of tampons) and I am becoming fanatical about decreasing my plastic usage so I ordered these to try. I will never go back to disposable pads! These are soooo comfortable and they can absorb a lot. I use the large ones at night and the medium ones during the day on my first 1-2 days then switch to the small ones. One lasts a whole day without leaks or smell. It is way more comfortable than plastic pads, which can stick to you especially in the summer or when exercising.
hese are excellent! I made the leap from disposable pads (I cannot use tampons) to these, and I'm never going back. As soon as I tried one on for the first time, I was sold, and knew I wasn't ever going back to disposables.
I bought these for my teenage daughter because disposable pads started causing her to break out & she refuses to wear tampons, etc. & let me tell you what a relief getting these for her has been for me!!! No more fussing about how uncomfortable or sticky, no more mess from lack of absorption, no more breaking out or anything else that goes with using the store bought pads.
I was really really hesitant at first. I thought they would be disgusting to use. But also thought these would be good to have around, in general if my preferred brand of disposable was out of stock, and especially because of COVID so that I can stay in the house more.
When I received them, I washed them in the laundry (air dried), and used them right away. These exceeded my expectations. They seem more absorbent and comfortable than disposable pads.
They are easy to wash and it’s not disgusting at all. I rinse them in the sink until it runs clear, then toss them in the laundry with the rest of the wash.
Let me just say, if you are on edge about buying these just get them. These are great. I was very leery about trying these because I have the paragard iud and my period is ridiculously heavy Iean i would soak through an ultra tampon or large pad in 2 hours and if i didnt change right at the 2 hour mark or before I'd have to go home and change my pants. My flow is at its absolute heaviest right now and I'm on my second pad of the day and theres no leaking, no soak through the pad and the absorption is incredible. I have full trust in these pads. And they are so so comfortable and dont stick like disposable pads do so I'm not having to do a funny dance or walk to unstick.
I bought these because I am sensitive to disposable pads where I get itchy. I do not use pads too much any more because I use the period cup for a couple of years now, but I like to use pads here and there because I feel like it some days, or I use panty liners when my period is super light and I don’t need to use the cup.
The pads are great, absorbs super well, on my heavy flow, I rarely felt myself leaking or the blood coming out because it absorbed that quick.
I was a bit skeptical about this product, but really wanted to find a way to not create so much waste with disposable pads. I was actually pleasantly surprised by how much, and how well this product absorbed. I used one in place of a tampon at home and I felt no moisture all evening. The pad didn't shift or leak, but boy did it absorb quite a bit of "flow."
This has seriously changed my period game on an all-new level! I love knowing that there are no chemicals that could potentially be harmful to my body like normal plastic pads. Plus, they are eco-friendly, and MUCH more comfortable to wear! They come in cute prints and are surprisingly super absorbent. I feel dry for hours at a time and don't feel the need to change pads every hour like I used to when I used plastic pads.
I absolutely love these and it was the very best decision I have EVER made. I have stag 4 endometriosis and PCOS and I have been changing products to help with pain and not have the bleached products inside me or touching in sensitive areas. So these reusable pads are amazing and hold a lot.
I love these! They are a lot more comfortable than disposal pads, and I don't have a diaper rash at the end of my period since I started using these. Cleaning them is so easy, just toss in the washer to rinse before throwing in regular laundry. It might be in my head, but it does feel like my periods are shorter and I'm not as crampy as I would get with disposal pads and tampons.
I love these pads! They are soft and comfortable to wear. They do not have the plastic feel of Synthetic pads, so even though they feel like a pillow between my thighs, they are relaxing and breathable. The overnights are very comforting because of their large coverage. The medium a perfect for day wear activity. And small are nice for the very last days. The small are also okay in yoga pants.
I suffer from extreme sensitivity to a lot of things. I have to be careful of what detergent and soaps that I use. Can't use scented tampons or sanitary pads. I've had yeast infections from certain brands of tampons and also get "diaper rashes" when I wear any type of pad. I dread my period every month because of this, so I was excited to try something different. I am so glad that I bought these! They are SO soft against my skin and also very absorbent.
After having horrible allergic reactions to disposable sanitary pad products, I decided to try out cloth pads. I’m happy I did and will never go back!
I really am pleased with these. I've been using cloth diapers on my kids for 4 years, so I don't know why it took me so long to realize that I should be using cloth pads for myself, too! And now I see why the babies like the cloth diapers better and why they basically only get diaper rash when they are wearing disposables for a long time (like when we are traveling).
I am so in love with these! I used them for the first time this week and just got done washing them and everything seems great! The main reason I purchased these was to reduce the waste created by disposable pads, but I love them for so many more reasons. They are 10x more comfortable than any other period product I have used. Better than commercial pads because I feel like everything can breathe. Just wearing them is more comfortable than regular pads. The fact that it's not taped to my underwear means I can adjust it to the perfect place and it stays in place pretty well, better than when the adhesive comes undone with regular pads. Plus the bag that comes with it is great for storing both new and used pads when in public. After placing a used pad in the bag and zipping it shut, I tested it and didn't detect any smell!
After using for a while, I'm pretty sure I'm not using disposable pads ever again. Very comfortable, absorbent, and cleaner. No chemicals, no leaks, no more waste. Beautiful patterns. Definitively recommended.
I must say, I'm really loving these cloth pads! I feel they hold more then a regular pad. I use to change pads almost every 2 to 3 hours (with the 8 hour pads). Going though around 6 pads a day. With these, I only use maybe 3 a day and it feels super dry and soft throughout the use. I think I only change it out of habit and just knowing how heavy I flow. But I may just need 2 or 1 a day.
The color is beautiful, everything matches the description. Delivery was fast.
They are of excellent quality! Well sewn!
Arrived very fast. The quality is excellent. I will definitely buy more.
