Getting my period sucks.
For the most part of the month, I’m okay. Sure, things can get challenging but I power through my days because I’m an adult with responsibilities. But once I start bleeding down there, it’s game over; I turn into a big baby whining about how life is unfair. On top of the things already on my plate, I now have to deal with dysmenorrhea, feeling fat and bloated, accidental stains, and ALL THE EMOTIONS! (I was PMS-ing one time and Joey gave me a playful pinch that sent me laughing and then crying within a matter of seconds). Tampons are a godsend but they’re expensive and most pads are uncomfortable, clumpy things that give me rashes.
Again: getting my period sucks. It’s the only time of the month when I could use all the help and pampering I can get.
Last week, I braved payday Friday the 13th traffic to attend the Whisper Skin Love launch. For those who aren’t familiar with it, Skin Love is the latest cotton pad from Whisper.
They also introduced Whisper Skin Love’s ambassador: Belle Daza!
Cerah: How do you pamper yourself after a long day of work?
Belle: I drunk dial my masseuse.
(LOVE her sense of humor.)
Belle swears by Whisper Skin Love and shares that it feels like second skin.
We’ve heard it all before— pads so thin they can make you do anything and everything but we all know that’s just advertising. I mean really: who wears tight white clothes on their period? And no one can be THAT happy when they’re bleeding down there!
SO WHAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER PADS???, you may ask. Here’s why you should give Skin Love a shot:
Sure, sanitary pads are soft but Whisper Skin Love is in its own league. I’ve never felt anything like it! Its Japan-designed cushiony topsheet is made with soft curly fibers that won’t irritate your crotch area. I cannot put to words how soft it is!
Skin Love’s Air Dry Cushion Topsheet allows 2x more air flow, allowing your skin to breathe. I hate pads that feel hot, stuffy, and itchy but Skin Love’s curly fibers create air pockets within the pad.
It’s THIN YET MORE ABSORBENT.
The first thing I noticed about Skin Love is that it’s skinny— as thin as a regular pantyliner! But what really won me over is that the pad pulls away the fluids to the bottom. You know how most pads keep the blood on top? Skin Love is not about that yucky business!
All the wetness goes to the bottom layer, away from your skin, keeping the top layer (and you!) dry and fresh. Skin Love also makes use of gel crystals which are able to hold 40x its own weight.
Whisper Skin Love comes in two variants: Day (28cm) and All Night (31cm) and a pack of 6 retails for an affordable PHP69.
