    I have been using the everyday liners for a while now and accidentally bought the mint ones. ( horrible mistake,uncomfortable burning) Can yall please put a warning label on the minty ones. The packaging is very similar. Thanks.

    This is not NOT the mint essential oils it is the l-Menthol burning all of us, I honestly can't believe they put menthol in this product. I have no idea how this made it past testing. They need to get it off the shelf!

    I literally just used one for my first time and WOAH!!!! That is NO comfortable COOLING feeling that is a cool BURNING feel. I ran so fast to the bathroom to take it off because there is nothing comfortable about that! You should put a label on those things as a warning.

    Last night as I laid in bed after applying my first ever HoneyPot product, I felt a burning sensation that reminded me of the time I used a peppermint bath bomb and felt like all my personal areas were being lit on fire. Thankfully it was just my crotch this time and not the rear end....anywho...WHO thought this was a good idea?!? A MAN?????  Seriously.  No one wants their vagina to feel like its been lit on fire.  Stop putting weird fragrances in personal care products its not natural and its not comfortable for the customer. 

    I usually use a diva cup but just moved and am unsure which box its in but definitely going to try to find it asap cuz this product is the worst. :-(

    Lol!! Okay. I thought I might be the only one. How in the heck did this pass? Crotch fire is correct. This is freaking ridiculous

    What in tha…?! Why do these exist? If for some reason you are reading this BEFORE you bought them — please don’t buy them. If it’s after, I’m so sorry.

    I bought these for my daughter’s “first period” school kit. I am so glad I tried one before I subjected her to this! I didn’t last 5 minutes with the herbal infused pad on. This is not anything that should be near your vagina unless what you’re in the market for is some serious vagina imbalance, ungodly burning, and a yeast infection. It would have been so scary for my daughter to feel this. At school. On her first period. Does anyone LIKE this product?

    I tried it for the first time at work like a fool.
    I wore it for 3 minutes and my vagina immediately started burning. It was burning for 30 minutes after I took it off and I looked like an idiot.
    Whose idea was this?
    WHY IS THERE NO WARNING ON THE PRODUCT??!
    A response from Honeypot explaining the sensation in FAQs indicates there is knowledge of this vaginal burning.
    It’s messed up to charge somebody $9 for a pack of pads that will set them on fire.
    What am I supposed to do with the rest of these?

    I get email notifications every time someone comments and this is now a group text joke amongst my friends. @katieminker maybe we should collectively start a stock pile for these and use them as self-defense weapons?
    Maybe they’d work as a heating pad like the Tiger Balm Patches?
    All I know is it should NEVER go near eyes or genitalia.

    EXACTLY what it feels like, tiger balm! It’s ridiculous, I was like WTH! HOW is this safe, or a cooling sensation??? It feels like my vagina is going through hell

    This is INSANE. I live in the mountains, bought these pads at my local market, and now am stuck either in burning pain or without any period protection all night long. There should be a HUGE WARNING. Why would someone do this?????? So uncomfortable and sad- I literally had to search the package to even see if there was anything listed at all. It's very hard to find. Did they try this first??

    OMG… I was losing my mind thinking something was wrong after trying these horrible pads out. I only lasted 5 minutes and the irritation was so severe I couldn’t take it. My girl was on fire but after removing she started to recover. Are these legal or did someone’s weird husband decide to add something extra as payback. Waste of money for sure

    @jenn Banda Agreed- now that I’m getting the comments in this thread emailed to me, the fire was almost worth it. So funny. We’re in a bad club.

    Felt like mouthwash on my private areas and burned, not horribly just really uncomfortable. I hope I can return them.

    I tried them on thinking they were normal pads. I don’t think I’ve ever hopped in the shower so fast after putting one on.

    I created an account just to write a review. I bought this brand with high expectations. CVS only had the scented ones so I bought a pack for way too much money and have NEVER regretted a purchase more than this. The most uncomfortable feeling ever. As if being on your period isn’t uncomfortable enough… then adding this awful burning sensation to the mix. These should be taken off the shelves to save people the discomfort and pain.

    This is so sadistic. Let's put mint essential oil in our pads and not make it obvious! And then make each box $10! Because people on their periods aren't already going through enough!

    To sell such a horrible product is shameful but to not offer a refund for such a disgrace of a creation is downright disrespectful.
    This pad is not “cooling”. Might as well clean my vagina with mouthwash. This is a scam of a product. I hope The Honey Pot gets sued, false advertising and causes pain to users..

    This is such a terrible product that I had to create an account just to leave a review. I immediately felt a burning sensation when putting this on. I cannot believe they not only created this product but then are telling people who are experiencing pain that it is normal????? Anyone that thinks it is acceptable to put MENTHOL on a pad has no business anywhere near a vagina. I hope this company gets sued. I will never purchase from them again because I do not trust them to make safe products.

    I’m beyond pissed off. I bought these horrible liners FOR MY DAUGHTER JUST IN CASE SHE STARTS HER PERIOD AT SCHOOL. I literally put one on tonight to sleep in and it immediately felt like my vagina was on fire. I didn’t realize they had freakin mint/menthol in them. WHO in their right mind thought this was a good idea? It feels like a cruel joke. This is insane!!! Im so glad I did this before I gave a few to my daughter to put in her backpack because could you imagine what it’d do to her?! Please make it LARGE you’ve put a burning oil in your liners. 😩 It’s sooo painful.

    I purchased the Herbal pads because of one the price at my local target and two because I was on my lunch break and in a pinch. NOPE! I wore it for less than 30 seconds, all I felt was a burning sensation on my lady bits. A warning label would be nice. Whoever thought that this was a good idea needs a smack up the side of the head. I assure you nobody likes their crotch on fire.

    The worst product ever! I thought was losing my mind. Within minutes my vagina felt like it was burning. I wasn’t at home when I used this product and had to rush home in order to wash. I created an account here just so I would send customer service a note about how horrible this product is. Then I found these comments. I am happy I am not alone in this, how wild that this product is still being sold. On the up side these comments made me laugh so hard I cried, I had to share them with my husband because, unfortunately he was one the who purchased these pads for me, I never would have bought anything with essential oils to be around my lady bits.

    My 😽 feels like it just smoked a pack of Newports. UNACCEPTABLE and can’t be good for the body. I grabbed these in a hurry while out of town. NEVER AGAIN.

    I was at a friend’s house and she offered me a pad because I told her I was on my period. I took it but didn’t end up needing to use it until now. I, so innocent and unaware of the ticking time bomb that was that pad that had sat on my bathroom shelf for the last month, put the pad on as I got ready for bed tonight. I was instantly hit with a burning, stinging sensation and I so naively tried to push through it. I really thought it would just go away with some time but it only aggravated my crotch more. Mind you this was also a maxi pad so it covered my butt, AKA all my holes down there were burning. I’ve concluded that my friend who gave me this pad either has an iron vagina or secretly hates me. I feel like my chances of having children have been ruined, it’s like my eggs have been burnt to a crisp. I got a bunch of crunchy omelettes now. I have written this review from my bathtub as I have had to soak and rinse my butt for the last half hour.
