Really close to running out of my stash of Always silk collection unscented pads.

Seems it's now discontinued and everything is scented! WTF has everyone else started using now, instead? sad

I'm lucky to have a pretty light flow, but still need a proper pad rather than a panty liner. Struggling to find anything for normal flow, without wings, unscented.

I really don't want to make the same mistake - I bought a scented pack (it was marked unscented... but odor neutralising... very misleading... I don't trust any of these pads marked "odor neutralising" now...) and had to throw it out straight away, the smell was sick. I know that sounds dramatic, but the smell was... something else. confused

I just use whatever own brand stuff the shop I'm in has, never noticed if they were scented tbh. You could always try a moon cup?

I get bodyform in Sainsbury's which are unscented as I don't like tampons and hate even the thought of a mooncup.

I switched to tesco. Range of pads, with or without wings, all non scented.

Mooncup and pads from Aldi

Bodyform unscented pads

I moved to washable pads. I love them. Can't work out why I didn't use them before!

Littledrummergirl Sat 18-Mar-17 17:22:50

Bodyform. They still had a choice of scented or not last time I bought some. Choose wisely.

Menstrual cup and reusable pads.

Menstrual cup. Game changer

MissMooMoo Sat 18-Mar-17 17:26:01

Pregnancy atm lol!
Anything natural/organic.
Natracare are good. I hate the plasticy feeling that most brands have.

AndKnowItsSeven Sat 18-Mar-17 17:26:17

Bodyform from Poundland or Kotex.

dementedpixie Sat 18-Mar-17 17:26:19

Bodyform, kotex (normally found in places like home bargains, poundstretcher, etc), own brands

witwootoodleoo Sat 18-Mar-17 17:26:59

Instead softcup. It's ace. Wish I'd known about them years ago.

IvyLeagueUnderTheSea Sat 18-Mar-17 17:27:01

Mooncup and washables.
I love Charlie Banana washables.

Sparklingbrook Sat 18-Mar-17 17:27:24

Tampons/any brand of unscented towels. Never in a million years a mooncup or similar.

Oh and my Diary Doll pants. grin

Craftylittlething Sat 18-Mar-17 17:28:15

Mooncup and Sainsburys Basics towels.

Another menstrual cup fan. Give it a try, you won't look back.

Mooncup. I have too light a flow for tampons and could not find any unscented pads. I hate the faff of anything but a mooncup now.
