A Friendly Letter to Always®


I’m a big fan of your feminine pads. The freak of nature that I am, I get the pleasure of stocking up your product every 26 days for Aunt Flow’s 9-day visits that leave me feeling more productive than Niagara Falls. I’m not a fan of Tampons, so as you can imagine, with 9 straight days of strapping on some protection, I’m thankful for your thin and comfortable pads.

Since their release, I have been a full on cheerleader for the Always® Infinity® line, but last night you threw me for a loop. First, I must tell you, it is my fault, as I didn’t take the time to figure out what made the new Always® Radiant Infinity® different from the originals.

Imagine my shock when I opened up the packaging and was greeted by a smell that reminds me of a girl trying WAY too hard to get hit on in a club. Now, your description says “a light clean scent, so you can feel fresh.” I assure you, that there is nothing light and clean about it.

Besides the fact that the pad makes me feel like I’ve been surprised attacked by a perfume counter worker, I just can’t see the point of it.

Honestly, I’m perfectly capable of keeping my hoo-ha clean and fresh, even when Aunt Flow comes around and do not require your assistance in that department. Secondly, does any woman seriously put herself in the situation, while on her period and sporting a pad that someone is going to have the opportunity to go sniffing around down there?

I can assure you that when Aunt Flow comes rushing by again next month, these froo froo scented things will not be in my house again. In fact, I will be donating the second box I bought. I will happily stick with the original Always® Infinity® pads and kindly ask you to leave the “freshness” of nether regions to me in the future.


Yours Truly,
