Your review: I find that the best way to make these better quality is compressing them, for if you don't compress them then they like to bunch up and break in the middle.
Pros: Very cheap and a great investment, the first brand that doesn't irritate my skin. I find that, yes, they do work.
Cons: Bunches up and breaks in the middle if they are not compressed. I put mine in between books to compress them.
