It,s hard to find these in the stores. One day they're there the next time they're out. I bought 10 packages so it will be a long time before I run out, and when I do I know where to buy them. There are hundreds of different kinds of pads out there, but these are the kind I want. Now I don't have to go store to store to find them. Thanks

'New & Improved' pads are NOT improved

Why oh why did they discontinue regular, classic Kotex pads? This Natural Balance line that has replaced all the regular pads are terrible! Really they are so bad! They feel slippery and slimy...Read complete review

Why oh why did they discontinue regular, classic Kotex pads? This Natural Balance line that has replaced all the regular pads are terrible! Really they are so bad! They feel slippery and slimy and not clean. Who wants Vitamin E and Aloe on their private business? I want clean-feeling cotton, which is why I always bought Kotex (for too many years to count). I bought a few packages of these 'new and improved' pads the other day, thinking just the packaging was different, and I tried one pad and returned the other two packages the same day. Hey Kotex please bring back regular cotton-feel Kotex! Please! Now Kotex makes nothing I would buy. Please bring them back!

    I like these for in between days. Very comfortable. I use an overnight size for heavy days, but otherwise these work for everything else without the bulk.

      Comments about Kotex Natural Balance Ultra Thin Pads, Jumbo Pack, Long, 56 ea, 1 pack:

      I like the length of this product best, it long enough to catch the accidental urin drips up front and long enough for protection at the other end too if you have bowel problems. It's thin enough to do the job and not feel bulky.

        These pads are so long that I don't know who could wear them. I'm a large woman, 5'8" and currently carrying an extra 50 pounds. And these are way, way too long and too wide. I tried cutting them down, but they were still uncomfortable.

              Comments about Kotex Natural Balance Ultra Thin Pads, Jumbo Pack, Long, 56 ea, 1 pack:

              I've purchased these for years. They were perfect for me: durable, soft, long, non-irritating and reliable. Lately, I've noticed something's different. The pad's top layer comes off after a couple of hours (and I'm not prancing around or doing anything strenuous.) The "stuffing" of the pad then starts to escape. It's a disaster. Also, the adhesive layer does not come off underpants easily and leaves a sticky residue. Blech. Unfortunately, I'm on the hunt for another brand.

                I've tried a few products similar to this and found these to be great. Being in a wheelchair, I find I need the long ones and found these to be one of the longest without going to an "overnight" product, which can be bulky and uncomfortable.

                Too Wide!

                Comments about Kotex Natural Balance Ultra Thin Pads, Jumbo Pack, Long, 56 ea, 1 pack:

                These pads are 5-6 inches wide, space between my legs -- 2-3 inches wide. The extra width has to go somewhere, so the pad either cups so that everything runs front or back without touching the pad itself, or it "pleats" so everything touches the top of each pleat and then runs off from side to side.
                They are also very stiff and the edges really hurt my thighs.
                Usually, if I hate a pad, I put up with it until the package is finished, but this time, they're going straight in the garbage.

                  The long length is great for a big gal like me - better coverage helps to prevent leaks.

                      Kotex, you've failed me for the last time. I've been using your product for about 30 years, but no more. All of your new "improved" pads stick too much to the panties and tear to shreds when trying to remove. Horrible! Can't get the sticky part to peel off the panties. Who wants to deal with that? I'm done.

                        it's my favorite brand, it's good to use on light days and for that extra protection along with tampon. just wish they could make it individual package for easy travel.

                          This is a good pad. Its thin (can hardly tell its there) but absorbent. It does NOT have wings which is a plus for me.
