Ah, periods, monthly monster, red flood, aunt flow, names used to describe periods. Cheesy, unrealistic commercials about sanitary products of girls wearing white pants and being all happy and active were the advertisements I grew up watching.

I am glad to introduce Blood, the new kid on the block, who takes an informative and relatable approach to sanitary products.

Blood.sg website hello

I enjoy looking at posts from Blood.sg on Instagram; their account is not plastered with advertisements for their products but consists of educational facts about women’s health with easy-to-understand infographics.

Blood products are available at Fairprice supermarkets and Shopee. I have bought the pads both in-store and online. At the supermarket, it is not hard to spot the bright red packaging on a shelf. Ordering online is also a breeze, and the best part is I received my items within two working days.

Plastic pads are not environmentally friendly and will cost more than a menstrual cup, but I am most comfortable using sanitary pads. I have tried tampons but never used menstrual cups before. I find the upfront cost high, and it would be a waste if I did not like the product.

Perhaps I am just a creature of habit, but I do find comfort in the fact that the Blood pads consist of a biodegradable soft sheet.

Sanitary Pads Packaging Design, Feminine Products –The packaging and branding of Blood products are unique. I haven’t seen any sanitary products so boldly coloured and in your face, but I like this design refreshing because in this day and age. Why should women keep something natural all so hush?

How blood packaging is different from conventional sanitary products is the waterproof envelope-like wrapping, which is a good change from the usual plastic packing you find with other brands. I like that each pack has a fun fact printed on the side.

Gaining a little knowledge about one’s periods and bringing awareness is beneficial, especially for educating the youth; the pads are packed individually with cute red and white patterns printed on the wrapper; the coincidence is that these are our national colours in Singapore, which makes sense since Blood is a local company.

Blood Ultra-thin Corn Sanitary Pads Review—The pads come in three different lengths: 25 cm with 14 pads per pack, 29cm with 12 pads per pack, and 33cm with ten pads per pack. What I like most about the pads is the supersoft corn texture. These pads are gentle on your skin.

Blood pads are light and breathable. I have used the 29cm and 33cm lengths and found that my skin doesn’t get abrasion sores or pimples while using Blood pads as I do with other brands I have previously used, which can feel stuffy and uncomfortable in our tropical climate.

I am now a fan of Blood pads, which do not irritate my sensitive skin. The
thickness of blood pads is only 0.2cm, which contributes tremendously to comfort levels.

However, the thin pad is susceptible to fraying and curling at the sides, which can sometimes cause some leaking. However, it is nothing too drastic and is still acceptable; the absorbent rate of the pads is still good for me, even during heavy days.

I find the wings a bit short, but overall, they are still acceptable, and there is always room for improvement, which I hope to see as the brand grows.

Blood Ultra-thin Corn Overnight Panty Review— Blood also carries overnight panty pads in sizes S-M and M-L. The corn panty is 3X More absorbent, boosted with their Anti-leak Gushdry™ Japanese core technology, which locks in leaks for maximum absorption compared to cotton.

The overnight panties, with a length of 50cm, provide 360-degree leak-free protection. Their curve-hugging fit ensures total 360-degree safety, locking in leaks for maximum absorption and comfort throughout the night.

Like the ordinary pads, the night panties contain a 100% corn sheet, contributing to softness. They are very comfortable and soft to the touch, and most importantly, the night panty sets your mind at ease, ensuring a good night’s sleep by removing the worry of staining your bed.

Each pack consists of 4 pads, which is a bonus to me because most companies sell pantie pads in a group of 2; I don’t mind paying a little more to reduce packing wastage.

Furthermore, these panty pads are so comfortable and of excellent quality, ensuring that I can toss and turn all I want and not have to force myself to lie entirely still through the night to prevent my pad from leaking.

Also, I do not have to wake up in the middle of the night to change the pad on heavy days, disrupting my sleep and causing me to be grumpy and tired the next day.

Besides, plastic pad panties from other brands can get very stuffy and hot, causing rashes at times. I am glad that wearing Blood’s overnight panty pads feels much more breathable compared to other brands. They are also much stronger and not easily ripped and broken when put on.

When overnight panty pads are useful – Other times I think this product would come in handy are during long flights and travelling or even when you have to work long shifts and do not have much time or access to the bathroom.

These would also make great postpartum pads for moms who just had babies. The panty is not noticeable when wearing pants or dresses, and there is no unsightly visible panty line or puffiness. I have to say that Blood has aced in this department.

Blood also carries a range of heat pads to relieve menstrual cramping and
pain relief, as well as menstrual cups, bamboo panties and pantie liners. I have
I have yet to try out these products, but perhaps I will if required someday.

I look forward to seeing what other innovative and valuable products this enterprising
local company will develop for Women.
