Growing up, my mother always taught me and my sister how important it is to maintain good hygiene. At a very early age, she taught us how to wash our undies properly. She was very much against putting our underwear in the hamper without washing them yet—even the slightest bit of marks had to be removed before our yayas laundered them.

So even before I got my first period in the fifth grade, I already knew about panty liners and how to use them. My mom would always buy packs, and I’d wear them to keep my panties clean all day and save me the effort of washing in case of any discharge or coloring. But the one thing I didn’t like was the uncomfortable feeling of wearing panty liners, and how they’d sometimes give me wedgies! So to this day, I usually refrain from wearing liners (unless I really have to; like during light days) and I’d actually rather wash my undies than feel the discomfort.

But then I discovered Carefree Acti-Fresh Liners, which have been designed to be twice as absorbent to lock away wetness and odor. They’re also super slim, that you won’t even feel like you’re wearing them. I don’t need to worry about feeling wedgies anymore! It’s as if the liner is invisible. This is especially convenient for an athlete like me, who’s always busy and on-the-go with training and games.


These days, I usually keep some in my bag in case of emergencies. The packaging is compact, so it doesn’t take up too much space. Every purchase in the Glamourbox online boutique comes with a Carefree Acti-Fresh sample in a pink pouch—so hurry and try it until supplies last! I guarantee it’ll keep you feeling cool and clean all day long.
