Aunt Flo visted me while I was travelling for work in New Bruswick. I needed to get 'protection' in a flash so I ran to the local Jean Coutu near the motel. They were having a sale on the 'protection' I needed from Aunt Flo and decided to purchase Personnelle Ultra Thins because the packing looked similar to Allways but for half the price. Well, Personnelle Ultra thins protects just as well as Always. Let me tell you why.
The packaging is green and yellow - very similar to Always. The Untra Thins with wings comes in 3 protection strengths: medium, heavy and overnight. I purchased the medium protection. There were 18 pads in the pack. Each pad was individually wrapped in yellow 'pockets' that could be saved and used to dispose of the pad later. They have an air weave covering that is as soft as cotton. The BEFRESH air-vented top layer of the pad keeps you dry. The wings are about an inch to inch and a half in length to allow for extra protection from leaks and have the same BEFRESH top layer on them.
Personnelle is a brand from The Jean Coutu Group in Quebec, Canada and are manufatured in Canada too! I was amazed that the quality of the pad and the protection it provided was comparable to Always and I only paid $2.99 for them. I love when I make a great purchase. If you have a Jean Coutu near you, get Personnelle Ultra Thin Pads for the next time Aunt Flo pays a visit.
