Dollar Maxi Pad Club August 2018 Review
First, you’ll see a packing list with everything you ordered and the cost breakdown. Since this was my very first order, I got to choose up to $15.00 of products for free and only had to pay $1.00 shipping with code ONEDOLLAR! The only things excluded from this were the menstrual cups (rats! I wanted to try theirs!) and the period and postpartum packages they offer that include beauty products and snacks.
There’s a small info card that has a thank you with a hashtag and social media handle on it so you can spread the word about your experience.
Now, let’s see what I got!
Bamboo Charcoal Panty Liners, 20 ct x2 – Total Retail Value $2.00
These were the first thing I threw in my cart because I use panty liners more often than other pads. I am normally a menstrual cup wearer instead of tampons and even though I have used one for 5+ years and consider myself an expert, spillage happens and panty liners are there to save my undies from devastation. The first thing I noticed about these (and all of their pads) is that they are made with bamboo charcoal and Anion strips. I have no idea what that means but the site enlightens me and offers:
The Charcoal Bamboo and Anion Strip blocks odor naturally, can help alleviate cramping, and kills bacteria. The Charcoal Strip possesses a negative ionic charge. That’s important since most of the toxins and pollutants in your body possess a positive ionic charge. Toxins are drawn to charcoal and eliminated from the body naturally.
I’m not quite sure if this is a gimmick or backed by science, but it sounds pretty cool! The panty liners themselves are 6 inches long and absorb up to 80 ml if you’re counting.
Bamboo Charcoal Regular/Day Pads, 10 ct – Retail Value $3.00
The regular/day pads have the same bamboo charcoal and anion strip as the panty liners but are 9 inches long and can hold 100 ml. They also have wings that hug your undies per the usual larger pad design. Like the other pads, these come individually wrapped so they travel easily and stay sanitary.
Bamboo Charcoal Heavy/Night Pads, 10 ct x2 – Total Retail Value $6.00 ($3.00 each)
These are of course the largest size pads they offer and good to use on heavy days or overnight when you think you may leak. They hold 120 ml and are 12 inches. Sometimes near the end of my period I am just not feeling like wearing my cup, so I can switch to these to give my body a break or while sleeping (just in case).
Compact Pearl Applicator Tampon in Super Absorbency, 8 ct – Retail Value $3.00
As I’ve mentioned, I’m not normally a tampon wearer, but I wanted to try as many products as I could, so I ordered these super absorbency tamps. The applicator was just as comfortable to use as a bigger brand and come in convenient individual wrappings, as usual. It’s good to have these on hand when my period may take me by surprise and I don’t have access to my usual cup! Comparing to an 8 count of a major brand of similar tampons, these are about 62 cents cheaper, so it looks like you can save some money.
All Natural Feminine Cleansing Wipes, 10 ct – Retail Value $1.00
Finally, I like to feel clean while on my period just as much as anyone, so sometimes wipes can come in handy. This pack comes with 10 lightly scented wipes that are made of pure cotton and are alcohol-free. They also contain vitamin E. It seems like these are flushable since they say “approved for properly maintained and code approved toilets, sewers, and septic tanks” but I can’t say for sure exactly what that means. The package is small enough to toss in a bag so they are travel-friendly.
Verdict: My first experience with Dollar Maxi Pad Club was enlightening and I certainly got a LOT for my first order. I appreciate that they’re made with no toxins or chemicals and have new technology that I wasn’t familiar with. If you want items to arrive without having to think about it, setting a recurring schedule (choose 21, 28 or 35 days) is super easy and I’m really impressed that they included menstrual cups at a low price as well.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? This subscription is fully customizable so you can get this same box as your first or choose what suits you best.
Value Breakdown: My first delivery only cost me $1.00 shipping, so clearly it was a deal to get 7 items for the price. Even after they go to regular price with my next shipment, they range from $1.00-$3.00 which doesn’t seem too bad at all.
