Featured Pads

Disposable pads are rubbish – literally, they’re a serious contributor to our waste. Plus many of us find them itchy. Lots of us want to switch to reusables, but the options are either not effective enough or too expensive. That’s why we made our pads

Amazing! I was very pleasantly surprised how easy it was to switch from tampons and disposable pads to reusable pads. I haven’t had any rash or rubbing, even when wearing them consecutively for a week. I was shocked how much plastic we go through as people with periods in our lifetime. I love that I’m also helping the environment by going reusable. They are super easy to wash. Can’t recommend enough!read more

Smelly, wet, messy . . . that’s what I thought reusable pads would be. But, I really couldn’t say I was doing my bit for the environment if I hadn’t at least tried them. After ordering my first Lilypads I have not looked back. I was surprised just how comfortable they are, they hold more blood, and winner winner, I have never leaked at night. I am surprised just how much I love my Lilypads and how easy and hassle-free cleaning them more

Honestly, it really isn’t an exaggeration to say these pads are life-changing. It is every woman’s dream that her period days are just like any other day, but the reality is that disposable sanitary products don’t give you that quality, comfort and security to make this a reality. I’m a menstrual cup user, but like a lot of people, I’m in constant fear of leaks…logical or not. Using the Lilypads reusable panty liners as back up means I’m covered in terms of leaks, and I’m comfortable.On a more practical note, they’re incredibly easy to use, wash and store. I was quite weary in the beginning about washing them, but after bunging them in the wash once I was put at ease.I would recommend them so much, I’ve bought them as presents for other people!read more

I was really looking forward to trying Lilypads. I have been a menstrual cup user for the last 4 years, but I don’t like wearing one for a week solid while I am on my period. Because of this I had been using disposable pads sometimes, but they are not very comfortable and I don’t like the waste that I produce when wearing them. Switching from these disposable pads to Lilypads has been perfect! They are so much comfier than disposable pads – I could barely tell I was wearing one as they are very thin and absorb the blood really well so it doesn’t feel soggy. They are also super absorbent, so I didn’t need to change them as frequently as with disposables. The cleaning process was also completely painless – I just threw them in with my next wash, and didn’t have to give them any special treatment. I would definitely recommend these to anyone with a period!read more

The Full Range of pads are made from the most comfortable material and do no irritate my skin, unlike the disposable plastic pads, which usually did. The selection of pads enables me to achieve a zero waste period, which I was previously not able to do. The Night pads can cope with my period at its heaviest, whilst the Back Up One pads are the perfect size for when my period is nearing the end. The Lilypads are a total game changer for anyone who has periods and I would recommend them to more

Lilypads are amazing!! They are so thin and comfortable and surprisingly absorbent, I don’t even notice them when I ‘m wearing them which is exactly what I want. Definitely the best reusable pad I’ve tried and miles better than disposables! Would 100% recommend!read more

Lilypads started by making reusable period pads for women in Kenya in 2018. We were asking friends in Edinburgh to try them and give us feedback. 

The most common piece was “these are more comfortable than my current pads”. People told us their pad left them with a rash on their thighs, made them feel itchy, they didn’t like the crunchy sound, they were worried about the waste of disposable pads and on the list goes.

So we made our own pads to sell in the UK, they’ve got a curved design so fit nicely to your body (and don’t chafe), they’re super absorbent so you don’t feel wet wearing them and they’re thin enough not to be seen through leggings. The best bit is they last for two years, so are 50% cheaper than disposables!
