Always Infinity #Review

This past month I received a box of Always Infinity pads to review from BzzAgent. This was my first time trying out the Always brand – have a huge confession to make I usually go for the cheapest feminine hygiene product on the shelf and do not look at what the others have to offer – if I have a coupon even better! So I was curious to see what all the fuss was about in regards to the new Infinicel (could it really be better then getting a great deal with a coupon??).

I had never heard about Infinicel prior to accepting this opportunity to review the Always Infinity line. The science (yup – you heard that right, the science!!) behind them is that the core is made up of two layers; the top layer absorbs fluids quickly and the bottom layer stores and distributes the fluids. The pads contain microdots (that look like holes – check out the photos below!) and act like little tunnels to get the fluid away from your skin and absorbed quickly. Here is what they look like:

I was so impressed by the quality of the material that is used in producing Always Infinity pads. The pad itself is soft and smooth. The pad is also thin so you do not have the constant worry that everyone can see that you are wearing one. 
Here are the top benefits that I found with this pad:
  • Extremely comfortable: Soft top layer of material that is smooth against your skin. The two layers together almost makes it feel like it has a cushion on it!
  • Keeps it’s shape: The pad did not move, wrinkle in spots or bunch up – even while working out and long walks.
  • Absorption rate: The pad absorbs quickly and removes any fluid away from your skin. Leaving you feeling dry and comfortable. 
  • Shape of the pad: The back of the pad is actually wider then the front which is perfect for sleeping and laying down. 
  • Wings: I am not sure if it is just me (or the fact that I usually buy whatever is cheapest on the shelf) but the wings on this brand were fantastic! They actually stuck to the underwear and stayed in place the whole time. 
Overall, I was extremely impressed with both the quality and absorption of the Always Infinity Pads. It is a product that I will definitely be purchasing again (and have already done so since receiving the original package!). They range in price from $4.97 to 8.98CDN (and are actually on Rollback at Walmart Canada right now so well worth a trip in!).  You can usually find coupons for these products (and other great P&G products) at P&G Brandsaver if you are ever worried about cost. 
You can also leave your own review on the Always Infinity website to let them know how you feel about their products. Have you tried Always Infinity yet? What are your thoughts?
Disclosure: I received a free box of Always Infinity pads as part of the BzzAgent program in order to provide an honest opinion to BzzAgent. I was not obligated to write a post on my review of the product.  The opinions of this product are my own and not influenced in any way.

ABC Friday Photo Share…S is for Sunsets!

It’s that time of the week again – time for ABC Friday Photo Share with Mom vs the Boys and Maple Leaf Mommy!
This week S is for Sunsets!

We just moved two weeks ago and life has been turned upside down for us. Our children were able to stay in the same schools but they still had an adjustment period trying to get used to the change in location, different set up of our home and having most of our items still packed up in boxes. I only had my computer hooked up a couple of days ago as my Mother’s Day gift!
We decided to take some down time away from unpacking and organizing and took the boys on a bit of a hike. We were able to capture the  most beautiful sunset. It went from orange, to an almost red and then to purple. It was so stunning and calming at the same time. It was great to just be outside with our boys and enjoying our time with them again (with all the moving preparation we had stopped just “playing” and were so focused on the move!).

Top Five (free!) Summer Activities

Our family loves to get out in the summer – hikes, splash pads, soccer fields just to name a few! Trying to keep the kids entertained throughout the entire summer can get expensive so while I was off on my last maternity leave I did a lot of research into activities I could do with my kids that would be free. I was shocked at the amount of fantastic places there were in my community and surrounding areas!
Here is our top five list of favourite places to go to that have no additional costs.
1. Local library : Local libraries usually hosts a huge variety of events through out the summer. We went to movie days, bingo, colouring contests and live animal shows. My kids had so much fun! Some of the events you have to pre-register for but they are well worth it. More information on the program usually comes out later in June but keep your eyes peeled! They also run a great reading program in conjunction with TD Canada Trust. He would read a book over the week and then go in and tell an older child all about the book.
2. Local splash pads: These provide hours, upon hours of fun!  We pack up lunches, extra clothes, sunscreen and spend several hours there. There is a huge list of splash pads that you should really check out. Children love to get out and play, throw in fun splash pads and it is a win-win!
3. Local Beaches: Beach front trails are perfect to walk down during the summer months with their great view of the water and the city. We also love heading down to the beach to throw rocks into the water.
4. Parls: Head out to your local park and get moving. Make up mini Olympic events, play matches but just get active.
5. Hiking: Pack snacks and maybe the wagon for tired kids and get out there and walk!
What are your favourite summer activities in your community?
