From wearing store bought uncomfortable toxic plastic pads to these soft, gentle all natural super comfortable cotton pads, I could never go back. Love love love!
26/10/2023, By Nivasha
I have recommended this product to family & friends. Plastic from store bought pads really affect your body and I couldn’t be happier with these pads.
16/10/2023, By Fern
Overall greaat budget option - they do have tendency to STICK to undies and rip... so watch for that. the are of the few brands that doesn't give m a rash or a reaction
10/10/2023, By Judith
I buy these for my daughter, and they seem to work well. She is trying to be more environmentally conscious so likes to use organic/ recylable products. We buy them regulalry
20/09/2023, By N
Agree they stick and tear when removing,I stick a panty liner under the pad and this solves it, as you can change just the pad frequently and the pantie liner less frequently as they do not leak. But I guess this might negate the environmental impact having to use both.
Still use them though!
12/09/2023, By t
Love these pads - and thankful for their affordable price. Would love a night / longer pad option.
08/09/2023, By Lourika
Nice feel, but it sometimes sticks to my underwear and tears when removing.
07/09/2023, By Lourika
I don't use anything else. No leak, it's perfect
03/08/2023, By Rowena
Comfortable and natural
07/07/2023, By Rowena
Really good product - better for the environment and comfortable to use
09/06/2023, By J
Tears and breaks apart when removing from underwear.
07/06/2023, By Micah
As good as any other pad on the market, they're absorbent and I'm glad they're more eco-friendly :)
10/05/2023, By Jana
Comfortable for a light to medium flow
09/05/2023, By Rowena
Earth friendly and comforable
21/03/2023, By Nicole
Not bad but not my favorite. I find them to be a bit thick and not long enough. Good for light flow though. Prefer the Petallite Day pads but these are a good alternative to those.
10/01/2023, By Micah
Glad to have found these, thanks for making them!
18/11/2022, By A2
I like the feel of the cotton. It's comfortable.
I do however feel that there is room for improvement. The pads are quite short, the glue too stong and the water proof layer too thin. it ends up tearing when pulled off from undies which is quite disgusting.
12/09/2022, By Ruby
AMAZING! So cheap, so good. love.
02/08/2022, By Pea
This product not only comes in a beautiful box but it also feels great to wear. A bit thick compared to others in the market and the glue that attaches it to the undies are too strong. I found that when I removed it, it often tore into pieces. Plastic also not very strong. But otherwise a good product.
21/06/2022, By Alex
These are so much better than what you can get at the shops. They stick better, feel better and smell better! Will definitely keep using these.
27/05/2022, By Jackie
I love these pads! Extremely affordable. They are really soft and comfortable. I sometimes go through a lot in a day, but I would still rather to that than use something that contains plastic and is going to take forever to biodegrade.
02/05/2022, By Piwe
They are the most comfortable and affordable pads I have ever used, I would highly recommend them.
13/04/2022, By Louise
No thrush, no itch. Just comfy
25/03/2022, By Riri
I love that the pads are cotton, but that’s about it. The quality is not good. I’m not a heavy flow girl, but this can’t even handle moderate flow. It even teared up when I removed it from my underwear. The size of the pad is small. I think they can do better in terms of the quality , wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for good quality.
16/03/2022, By Jo
wonderful product, ive been using it for over a year and it never fails me
13/03/2022, By Dia
Really like these. Don't even feel like I switched from non-organics. The feel is comfy and soft. Best one thus far
13/03/2022, By Dia
Have been using these for a few months already and really like them. The fit well and are nice and comfy
04/02/2022, By Aisha
These are my go to! They're soft, comfortable, durable and so affordable.

I like the idea of this product for greener living. But for a heavy flow its not great
07/01/2022, By Shan
Good product and price!
26/11/2021, By Rowena
My daughter likes using this product. I
12/10/2021, By Emma
Love this product. I am always looking for a new and improved pad, and this is it. Packaging is lovely and I like that there is no plastic. Will order loads more!
20/09/2021, By Monica
So good that I even got my mum on them too and she buys them in bulk.
02/09/2021, By Aimee
I used to suffer with pad rash from regular store brands so i decided to try these out. Organic and cotton. Very soft and i love it! No skin irritation. Already received my second order.
26/08/2021, By Melissa
This is a great product. Comfortable and absorbs better than expected. Would be perfect if it was a bit bigger though.
23/08/2021, By Megan
THE SOFTEST pads Ive ever used! LOVE LOVE! Feels like the softest fabric on your skin and doesn't make horrible plastic 'shoefie noises'.
22/08/2021, By azima
Great product, sticks to panty, no irritation
14/08/2021, By Melissa
If you got to go disposable ... Go Anna ... these are by far the best.
26/07/2021, By Tandy
These are good quality yet affordable. I do find their "stickiness" has room for improvement.
16/07/2021, By Valerie
Really comfortable, good protection, does not irritate the skin.

Unbelievably comfortable, affordable and environmentally conscious. Love it. ????
30/06/2021, By Poppy
SO comfortable, never had any issues with it. Made the change from normal pads super easy
29/06/2021, By Cecile
Fantastic product. GREAT packaging. Great price. Please bring out a narrower teen version and a longer night time product.
22/06/2021, By Emma
Fantastic! So soft and comfortable.
21/06/2021, By Lauren
Great price-point. Good absorption. Raw cotton makes it really comfortable to wear, even in the heat. Just a little bulky for me and tends to bunch a little at the back if you're having a more active day. The glue on the wings does tend to stay behind on your underwear, but if you have time to peel it off after each use, then it's not a huge issue. These will be my go-to option for quieter, stay-at-home days. I prefer the Flo Bamboo Pads for more active days or when I'm away from home.
10/06/2021, By Annie
I would recommend this product as firstly it feels great to use something that isn't harming the environment and is healthier for me. The only thing that I do wish they would change or offer as an alternative is a longer, thinner pad, something like a nighttime pad as these are too short for my heavier days and at night but on the lighter days they are perfect.
30/05/2021, By Vaw001
Love these! Absolutely soft and comfy!
02/05/2021, By Tamara
Happy customer.
01/05/2021, By Carla
Value for money
26/04/2021, By Sue
So soft and comfortable. Doesn't cause irritation like normal pads. Plus it's super affordable!
20/04/2021, By Penny
I usually use the fabric moon time pads, but these are such a convenient product to use and I'm very glad to have them on standby when I go out.
15/04/2021, By Bianka
Great product - will definitely buy again!
17/03/2021, By Tatum
Love that it's organic. It works perfectly and absorbs well. I gave it 4 stars because once the sticky part that Wraps under the underwear broke off and I could not remove it from my underwear. I did buy it again.
16/03/2021, By Nasiphi
These are my go to. I am planning on using their panty liners now
16/03/2021, By Nasiphi

15/03/2021, By Nokuthula
My favorite. Very comfortable. This is my 3rd time buying.
13/03/2021, By Ruth
Excellent product. My go to pad. More comfortable than any plastic one I've tried and affordable! Very comfortable with no irritation.
12/03/2021, By Adri
These pads work well and the are nice and soft. The only thing that is an issue is that some of the sticky part of the pad remains stuck on your underwear when you remove it. Its happened with almost every pad that I've used.
11/03/2021, By Louise
No more itching
02/03/2021, By Bethany
These are incredible!! Love that it's cotton. No more nqsty rash from plastic and better for the environment.
01/03/2021, By Anni
The best pads ever!!!!!!
23/02/2021, By Asha
was skeptical at first because the pad was shorter in length than I usually wear. But I was pleasantly surprised. Super soft and comfortable, I often forget I am wearing it. Great absorption and adheres to underwear VERY well, sometimes sticky bits remain but it is not a problem. Highly recommend. It is the only pads I use now.
18/02/2021, By Robyn
Great pads and affordable
17/02/2021, By Chanel
These are eco friendly, so why would you buy anuthing else
15/02/2021, By Candice
I love this product, it is sturdy, handled all my travels and adventures and most of all my runs without breaking./leaking. I love that it is safe for me and the environment. This is my go to pad when travelling and washing of reusable pads isn't as easy.
14/02/2021, By Monique
O yes, wanted to say as well that the glue on the wings are really sticky, if you don't take the pad off carefully or gently, the glue stays behind and you struggle to get it off. But still a good product that i'd continue to buy
10/02/2021, By Rozlynn
My 13 year old daughter, who is new to the world of feminine products, chooses these over any other commercial product. They dont have than plastic sound when you move and they are soft and flexible. They are not long and thick either so she doesnt feel like she is "wearing a nappy", as she puts it! They are also breathable so she doesnt feel all sweaty on hot days. She also loves that it comes in cardboard not plastic.
10/02/2021, By Bernadette
You will not regret buying these! They are so comfortable on your skin, and you actually forget you are wearing it. It is also great that you can throw it away guilt-free and recycle the rest. Super awesome product and best change I've ever made!
04/02/2021, By Cindy
Ultimate peace of mind...
01/02/2021, By Mich
Love this product
31/01/2021, By G
I use a pad as backup for my menstrual cup... These are a little thick for my liking, but I haven't had any bad reaction to these (I am allergic to polymer gel so I have to be very careful what I use). Good price.
29/01/2021, By Simphiwe
These don’t irritate my skin like the usual ones... I’ll keep purchasing
29/01/2021, By Monique
These are good, quite a bit thicker than what i'm used to, but you don't really notice it when you wear it. Doesn't seem to hold liquid AS well as natracare brand but it's ok, for this good price i'm continuing to buy these.
25/01/2021, By Nadya
Finally, sanitary pads that are eco-friendly but also affordable! These work great, and it's so nice to know that there is not one ounce of plastic involved, even down to the packaging. Well done ANNA!!
24/01/2021, By Ofentse
I wanna try it out
19/01/2021, By Nikki
Supper absorbent and comfortable.
13/01/2021, By Lucille
The great comments have me wondering if it was just my pack? Because I didn't find that they absorbed well unfortunately.
11/01/2021, By Resend
Oh my gosh these are amazing !!!

05/01/2021, By AJ
These pads have by far been the best, keeps me coming back on F2N to buy more every month
18/12/2020, By Innecke
This is a lovely product! Super absorbent and comfortable! And affordable. I definitely recommend if you have a heavier flow. Mine is too light to actually need a pad this thick. So I stick with the liners. But I'll keep these for those rough 1st 2 days :)

Ultra soft, absorbent and comfortable
13/12/2020, By Ant
So happy to have stumbled across these on your website. Much better and cheaper than the imported brand. They should be made available in every school, college, university, clinic, informal shop, supermarket etc countrywide.
12/12/2020, By Vanessa

Love these, they dont give me a rash.
09/12/2020, By Brynna
So far so good! I've only used them for a month, but I was very excited to find non-plastic pads.
09/12/2020, By SRC
Does exactly what it’s supposed to do but feels lighter and more absorbent. Doesn’t have the cloying plastic feel to it. Really impressed
05/12/2020, By Taryn
The packaging is great, its comfortable, amazing absorbency and its so affordable. However, I wish it was a bit longer for sleeping. I hope they will expand the range and design a night sanitary pad.
05/12/2020, By Taryn
I normally only use ultra thin but these were super comfortable. Would be perfect if it came in a longer size as well.
05/12/2020, By RC
Super impressed
04/12/2020, By Raine
Good product, I would buy it again.
01/12/2020, By Candice

Effective! Soft and comfortable! Could maybe be a bit longer?
26/11/2020, By Vanessa
such a good concept, cant wait to try these out
25/11/2020, By Nicole
Love the basic packaging and knowing that the pads are organic
24/11/2020, By Barbs
This is a fantastic product. I have felt comfortable using regular liners because of the plastic content. Thank you FTN for sourcing these.
24/11/2020, By Amy
Amazing product, provides the protection needed like any other sanitary pad. These pads are non-toxic, biodegradable and affordable, with no plastic. What's there not to love?
24/11/2020, By Marianne
I have been using ANNA pads for almost a year now and I absolutely LOVE IT! It sits comfortable, the absorbance is great, really affordable and the best part is that it is biodegradable (from the packaging to the pads itself). I love using environmentally friendly sanitary products therefore ANNA is the way to go!
08/11/2020, By Loret
I have reviewed this product before but I just can't get over how amazing it is! The absorbency is the best I have ever experienced. It is perfect in absolutely every way! 10 stars!
04/11/2020, By Tiffany
Great product for a great price. I always felt bad about throwing used pads away. This really takes away the guilt. Wonderful packaging too. One thing however, the pad doesn’t remain sticky for long.
28/10/2020, By Yolande
It provided exactly what I need. Comfortable, great absorbency and its at a great price! What's not to like ;)
27/10/2020, By Gerda-Mari
Great Product
27/10/2020, By Aaminah
Fantastic product
25/10/2020, By Leigh
The only sanitary towel that has not given me a rash. It is great and eco-friendly.
23/10/2020, By Naids
The BEST sanitary pads I have used. They are so incredibly soft. With these, I don't worry about chafing, or any skin irritation for that matter, which is truly amazing. They have great absorbance too! Would love to have a wider variety one day, but these are a great medium-flow pads, but can handle more if need be!
Just be careful when removing them from your underwear, as sometimes the sticky strips can be a bit stubborn.
20/10/2020, By Nicola
Love these pads! I started using ANNA sanitary pads a about a week or so after giving birth and these are a lot more comfortable than regular pads. Also love the packaging and the fact that it's locally made. Very well priced too, I'm sticking to these.
16/10/2020, By Carli
Love the price, love the product
12/10/2020, By Kylie

The absolute best pads that I have ever used! Comfortable, reliable and AFFORDABLE! I will never use any other brand again.
12/10/2020, By Carla
Not as thick as what I usually use, but absorbs so much better. I love these natural pads
12/10/2020, By shum
I love this natural product. Nice.
11/10/2020, By Kelly
First time using this brand and I couldn't be happier! At first I was a bit worried with the pad being thicker than what I'm used to, however it is so comfortable, I didn't feel a difference at all. Would definitely recommend.

09/10/2020, By Lisa
This is the first time I have tried these and this is unmistakably THE BEST sanitary towels I have EVER come across! It is the perfect thickness and size, it stays in place, it is completely absorbent and although I sometimes wear a pad for a little longer because I am on the road, there is absolutely no leakage! I am going to bulk order because I never want to be without it! 10 stars!!
06/10/2020, By Tam
My favourite pads now!
26/09/2020, By Tammy
Great value - my new go to natural pad
23/09/2020, By Ruth
Highly recommended. They are very absorbent and work well with heavy flow.
Best priced plastic free alternative for pads I've managed to find. Price is similar to normal plastic maxi pads. Worth it!
14/09/2020, By TJ.
Great product and love that it is local.
13/09/2020, By Carika
Definitely a new favourite! Comfortable, great for the environment and I love the packaging!
05/09/2020, By Claire
The pads are quite thick but comfortable. They seem as efficient as "classic" ones. I will buy again.
30/08/2020, By Jay
These are great, I do wish the pads had a thinner option as these are quite thick. But other than that they are wonderful
24/08/2020, By T
I just received my pads and I absolutely love it!
20/08/2020, By Teri

Locally made, natural and affordable. Use this when Hannahpad is drying.
17/08/2020, By Christina
Affordable, gentle on the skin and a good quality product. Love that this price is similar to the one found at large supermarkets, nice consistency.
16/08/2020, By Cookie
Finally a more affordable organic pad
