Rated 1 out of 5 by Please bring back the Natural Balance!!! Pretty please I have been using Kotex brand for YEARS and the Ultra Thing Longs have been my favorite go to... however these new U ones do not live up to the Kotex name and brand. Please bring them back. The new ones are very "thin" which is great as thats what the label calls for but they are just not the same as the Natural Balance. I have already thrown out the pack i bought and in search of something new... very upsetting Kotex :( December 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Caused allergic reaction This was my brand because I am very sensitive to ingredients. I imnediately had a reaction to something (I thought it was the dye, but maybe it is something else new in this product) and had to throw them out. Very disappointed that this change was made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unscented?? - Not!! I had been using Kotex ultra thin long pads for many years now. I bought your new U Kotex yesterday and open them this morning. I immediately noticed a smell to them which was not there with the older version. I came on your website looking to see if they were scented and saw that they are not, but saw that many other people are commenting on the smell plus other issues. Like them I feel 'if it's not broke don't fix it' - bring back what you were making. It was a waste of money - $5.99. I am throwing this package out and will be buying something else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Please bring Natural Balance back! I stood in the pad isle for forever desperately looking for my go to pads, Natural Balance. Oh gosh, they were nowhere to be found! Please bring them back. They were the most comfortable, most perfect pad ever. Everything else is subpar. Other pads leave me feeling irritated and uncomfortable. Natural Balance makes that unpleasant time of the month a little more (actually a lot more) tolerable. November 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by So disappointed I've been using Kotex for at least 16 years, I went through many different products and finally found you guys, you worked and I've stuck ever since.Then you guys changed your amazing product to the 'U' line, sure the packaging is nice, but you had to go and change the pad too, for the worst I might add. I feel like these were not designed by a woman!Your new product is:itchyhas too much adhesiveweak in the middle and bunches in the centerI haven't had any leak issues until this new pad design, and I find I have to change it more often even if it isn't soiled because it bunches and moves out of place, they also make me itchy and sore which is a problem I've had with many other companies.Not happy with the change, I hope you guys will go back, or re-release the old product under a different name.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BRING BACK NATURAL BALANCE The new U by Kotex claims to be a new look with the same (or better with this "3D capture core") protection. It's terrible. Kotex's upgrade took away what I loved most about Natural Balance: the aloe, the vitamin E, and (most important) the cotton. "Cotton feel" is not cotton. I'm not sure what's being used but I do know that its giving me the same issues as Always brand did. It was the reason I had switched. It's disappointing that such a great product is being taken off the market. I hope you not only listen to this one review but all the rest of them on your own site, amazon, and other retail sites were your consumers can post their opinion, and realize that marketing a colorful new pad is not helping your company. Bring back natural balance. You can keep your flashy packaging but bring back the quality. November 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Changed for the worse I am very sad after so many years to have to find a new brand. The new U Kotex smells like gasoline and is not nearly as absorbant. I have to change in the middle of the night. The adhesive is ruining my panties. Back to the drawing board! October 27, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed to change after so many years Sometimes a product gets changed and you wonder how it made it out of research and development, and this is absolutely one of those changes. Since the change to the product I have to change my pad twice as often. It's partly an issue of volume but the bigger issue is the odor. I've used the 'old' version for many years but this is a disaster. So long, Kotex. :-( October 10, 2014
