I have to be very honest. I have not heard of the brand Jeunesse Anion (a line of feminine pads). I see it a few times on my FB feed and assumed it was imported. My friend Kaye swears by this brand. She even bought a box huge box of it. He daughter Kyla is also a huge fan of the brand. I honestly wanted to try it out, unfortunately it isn’t available in my favorite grocery store.
A few months ago, I was sent a few packs to try. I was really curious. I felt though, that one time use might not be enough to be able to feel the difference. I was honestly pessimistic, I assumed I needed a few months at the very least. The timing was perfect since it was that time of the month. So I tried it, and I really really liked it.
Being pessimistic on the *trial* period was beneficial pala, I did not have any expectations on the brand and so I started on a clean slate. I was very much impressed with the Jeunesse feminine pad to be honest. I felt the difference almost immediately. You see, when I have my period I already know the the cycle of what will happen. But when I started using Jeunesse Anion feminine pads, the *cycle* that I was already used to, changed drastically. My usual cycle was like this: Day 1 – very light flow Day 2 – heavy flow Day 3 – heavy flow Day 4 – slightly heavy flow I would be feeling really bloated, sluggish and coupled with cramping here and there. I would be changing pads often because of the very heavy flow. For the past months – when I would go out I would bring an extra set of clothes (+ undies) because I was afraid of having those unfortunate incidences. I would usually turn down events when it was that time of the month because of my very heavy period. A habit too was that before I sleep, I would lay out an additional layer of protection on my bed. I would put those bubble sheets (the ones used for babies) on my side of the bed to avoid staining the bed sheet and mattress because of my very heavy flow. I would do this every night until my period stopped. But after trying Jeunuesse Anion pads my cycle drastically shifted to the better. I honestly did not expect it to change that fast or even at all. I mean, diba? One time use, really? But seriously – it really did. My cycle for that *trial* period was: Day 1 – light flow Day 2 – very heavy flow Day 3 – light to medium flow Day 4 – very light flow to spotting I felt the change almost immediately. I wasn’t as sluggish, in fact I was on the move. I was not worried of an overflow so I did not feel the need to bring extra clothes – I did bring extra pads. I felt more normal, no cramping and I didn’t feel irritable. I was actually in a very positive mood! I made sure to notice what I felt since I was using the Jeunesse pads and I’m very happy with the results. I really do think that the Anion strip really made a difference. Placebo you’d say, but you know what – I felt better, I didn’t feel like I needed to slow down during my period. So what is the Anion strip? Below is the picture of what the Anion strip looks like:
See that green strip? Well, all the feminine pads had that Anion strip on them. The anion strips emit negatively-charged molecules. These negatively charges molecules help maintain freshness and protection, it also helps ease menstrual discomfort. One thing I observed, was that whenever I went to the bathroom, I would feel the heavy flow of period gush through. I never experience anything like that before with my old pads. And it felt really nice as I feel that the gush was *properly* eliminated. I would change the pads often too but the pads, I noticed were not as full compared to the other brands that I used before. I really felt more clean and fresh. Because I tried it, I’m now a believer of the brand.
I honestly forgot what it was like to use a non-wing (ever since having used *wings* in the past) but with Jeunesse Anion, I like using the non-wing variant. I actually preferred it over the non-wing, weird ba? I felt really protected already. Haha! I think that’s the most important thing, that we have the option to use non-wing or wing. I assumed that all napkins had wings nowadays. Hihi.. I was wrong! The packaging is really nice too as its RESEALABLE. Yes, you read that right – resealable! When I saw the pack I was wondering on how to open it. The pack was sealed shut without any perforation for easy opening. Then I noticed something on the side of the package – I discovered, it was a sticker of sort that you peel to open and then it sticks back on to close and protect the whole pack. Brilliant right? I am now a believer of Jeunesse Anion napkins.
