Charlie Banana Reusable Feminine Pads Review and #GIVEAWAY {US and Canada} (All About Baby Boutique)

I've worked with the ladies at All About Baby Boutique in the past on a few reviews and giveaways. I have to say that they are very knowledgeable when it comes to cloth diapers and other natural parenting items. Their customer service is top of the line and it seems they are always looking for ways to help educate their customers and provide them with exactly what they need!
I recently contacted All About Baby Boutique regarding reusable feminine pads. Now, before you stop reading, and click to another review, let me tell you that if you have not jumped on the band-wagon of reusable feminine pads, then might I say, you are living in the dark ages! :) These pads are so awesome and they are so much better for you when compared to commercial tampons or pads (which contain harmful chemicals such as dioxins which are a known carcinogen)! Who wants to put stuff like that next to their crown jewels? Not me!!
Priscilla, from All About Baby Boutique graciously offered to send me a 3 pack of the Charlie Banana reusable feminine pads, size super for me to review. This is what I received:
The top side of the pad (that rests against your skin):
The bottom side of the pad (that rests against your undies):
Here is some information for you regarding Charlie Banana reusable feminine pads (taken from All About Baby Boutique's website):

Charlie Banana Feminine Pads

That is surely something you did not want to talk about with your girlfriends or others. Times have changed. The truth is periods are periods and they arrive as expected most of the time. We live in a modern age and the majority of us wear tampons and different types of chemicals loaded pads. Not so long ago toxic shock syndrome scared us all!

We all heard about it, read about it and we carried on…

Reusable pads have always existed but were not very fashionable just like cloth diapers … what a shame. Reusable pads are a delight!

Comfortable like you would not believe, stain free, chemical free, stylish and cute, super convenient, eco friendly and economical. We gave many samples to friends and they all looked at us in a funny way at first. I must admit it was often a joke among new employees. But after everyone tried, the votes were conclusive: A Winner.

They all love them and were convinced they were the coolest things. Try them and we can assure you that you will never go back.

Charlie Banana™ is the perfect starter kit for a young girl having her first period. Why not give a daughter the proper start!
•Charlie Banana™ Innovative washable feminine pads are very comfortable and stylish. A must try for every women.
•They are perfume free, chlorine free, and free from chemicals.
•Choose your ideal absorbency; Panty liner, Regular, and Super.
•They are Unbelievably Stain free. A perfect gift for any young girl.
•A fabulous selection of colours to choose from."

Now, I asked for the super Charlie Banana pads because I tend to have a heavy flow the first few days of my cycle! I used these pads and I cannot tell you how much I LOVE them!
I love that they are all-in-one pads (there is no having to stack liners to increase absorbency) and there is no unstuffing, which means that you don't have touch a bloody pad on wash day. Oh, that's another thing.... wash day! Well, I keep all my soiled pads in a wet bag until wash day, unless I wash mid-cycle! Then I dump all the pads into the washing machine, fill the washing machine with cold water and let them soak for about an hour (I've even forgotten about them and left them overnight)! Then I rinse the cold water out, then run a hot wash cycle with some Rockin Green Femme Rock! These pads came out soft, fluffy and totally clean! You would think that something that has been soaked in blood would be prone to stains, but so far, I've used these twice and I have had no problems with stains!

  3. I guess I'm still in the dark ages then because this is the first time I've heard about reusable feminine pads. I was just wondering...what if you're out and about and you have to change pads? I know the pack comes with a tote where you place your used pad. But is there a smell? Also, can you button the wings so that it doesn't move in your underwear?

  25. Advertising exposure is obviously one in the oldest business
    tactics available, as old as business itself. Creating an effective plan of attack includes picking out the
    topic of your business, seeking the types of products you'll sell, what kind of business website you desire to use (blogs, sales page sites, review sites), how we will market, what marketing materials you will write.
    One of the extremely popular methods to start a web-based retail store is usually
    to start as being a dropshipper.
