- Additional Information
These tampons are comfortable and discrete but leak so easily! When you remove the tampon you can see that it hasn’t even saturated the tampon. Won’t be buying these again.
Difficult to Insert
I have used Tampax in the past an have never had a problem until now. Evidently they have redesigned the plastic plunger, so now the shape is small, oval and ribbed. It appears that it is ribbed to produce friction so you can better push, but there's something about this new design that makes it very difficult to insert the plunger. I would estimate that I give up on about 1 in 5 tampons and try with a new one. They just won't budge, even though I try lightening or increasing my grip. Sometimes I even try it two handed - talk about awkward! I'm a regular size/shape woman (5'4" 130 lb) with regular fingers, right handed. With that said, the initial insertion (prior to plunging) is smooth and they are comfortable. I use the Supers, and they sometimes leak, but i'm not faulting Tampax for that - I should probably get the next level up. I won't buy this brand again though until they re-shape the design. My overall rating of 2 stars is based on the difficulty to insert the plunger.
Always thought super plus was the highest absorbency, I was so glad to find this. Sometimes super plus isn't enough but this certainly does the job for those extra heavy days. Ultra has become a permanent addition to the rotation.
Packaging caused a major mishap
My disposition regarding this product is not necessarily about its overall quality but one major mishap in particular, its packaging. I bought a small box a few weeks ago and had just opened it tonight. Opening the box, I expected lite sized tampons, because that is what I had thought I bought, but to my surprise they were ultra. I understand this could have been avoided if I had read a bit closer. However, I strongly encourage either the lite or ultra tampons packaging is changed in order to avoid less people like myself to make the same silly mistake and end up with the complete opposite product they were interested in.
My periods are so heavy. Nothing on the market had a large enough absorbency to help me. Tampax Pearl Ultra has been a game changer and I can have a life again during my period! Finally! Thank you so much!
