So, today I had the oh so lovely task of buying the goods. I got a 40 pack of tampons that came with a 5 pack bonus of the pearls. I never even noticed the bonus until I got home, so when I did, I decided to try a pearl out. Very comfortable, easy to use and so far very good at protection. I'll probably get another box with a bonus before making a final decision, but so far I am liking these! I have used Tampax for most of my years (any time I didn't was when things were really rough and had to go for something that was given to me), so these pearls are a nice little thing to try. Applicator is a little short probably for most, but it wasn't a problem with me, as I don't have... err... well... the same depth as most women. As it is right now, I would definitely recommend this!

what happened to the cardboard Lites??

This new design is terrible. The braid is soaked before the tampon is, always making me feel as if I've leaked. And what the heck happened to the Lites with the cardboard applicator?...Read complete review

This new design is terrible. The braid is soaked before the tampon is, always making me feel as if I've leaked. And what the heck happened to the Lites with the cardboard applicator? I can't find them ANYWHERE, unless I want to waste my money buying a multipack. Just the way my body is, I rarely need anything heavier than a lite and no other manufacturer makes a lite except tampax . . . of course I can still buy Tampax Lites as long as I want to throw plastic into the environment and fill up the landfills. This is SO WRONG!!!!

leaked

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I like the old tampons that were in the purple wrapping. I tried these 3x and each time it leaked. Will not be buying these again unless they bring back the old design.

Ultra - Is THE best for heavy flow days

By 

from Saskatchewan

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

So ecstatic that you have come out with a higher absorbency than Super Plus! Has made my life so much better on those heavy days. I can at least go more than 2 or 3 hours without having to take care of business. THANK YOU Tampax! Always my brand of choice!

It's great if you can get it in....

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

The tampon itself has great absorbency, but the applicator doesn't work well. With the latest box that I have, about 1 in 3 of the applicators actually work. So, you get to choose from throwing away a perfectly good tampon because it didn't push all the way out of the plastic body or pull out the actual tampon and insert it by hand in order to not waste money. I won't be buying these again, I'll stick to the cardboard one, the applicator is a sure shot.

Not pleased

By 

from Yonkers, NY

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I generally buy generic brand tampons. But decided to try these. The products feel and smell was great but the protection was horrible. Granted I understand different factors can cause things to not always working as expected. In this case though I feel that stating this product can protect up to 8 hours is false claim. At best I got 4 hrs. I could understand a claim of 8 if the average was in fact 6 or 7 hours. But to state 8 is reaching. These tampons vs the generic ones I usually buy do smell and feel better. The generic ones however protected me better.

GREAT !

By 

from Cleveland

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

The fit, protection, and ease of use of the Ultra Pearl is great. In addition to the traditional use, my gynecologist suggested them for a non traditional use after having to take several enemas to protect against leakage there as well.

Great protection but a bit uncomfortable

By 

from Fort Worth

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

As a 40 year old sufferer of uterine fibroids (& thereby very heavy periods) I have been waiting for Tampax to come out with a Ultra tampon. However, while I regularly use Tampax products for their reliability and comfort, I found these tampons to be fairly uncomfortable during insertion and removal. I believe this is due to the girth of the product more than materials used or plastic applicator.

This product saves lives.

By 

from Glen Ullin, ND

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Warning- TMI, and I apologize. The Tampax Pearl Super Plus seriously saves me every month. I am a heavy bleeder. I go through one of the Super Plus Tampons in an hour on a heavy day. The backup cord saves me from having horrible accidents. I am so thankful for having these tampons in my life. Thank you for making a product I can have confidence in and allowing reassurance of me not having a huge mess!

LESS PROTECTION THAN SUPER PLUS TAMPONS

By 

from FRASER, MI

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I have very heavy periods my first and second days.. I usually wear a super plus tampon with an overnight pad, and still must change my dressings every hour. When I saw Tampax Ultra in the store I was so excited. However, they do not work. In fact, I think the Super Plus gave me better protection. I'm not changing tampons any less, in fact I have more leakage.

Best Combo Pack!

By 

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Please continue to make these cardboard tampons, both as a multipack and individually. I love having the different absorbancy options in one box. However, I see you discontinued the Lites in their own box. Please bring them back! There are lots of environmentally conscious ladies who continue to use and love your cardboard applicators. No plastic for me!

Only tampon good on my first day

By 

from Dumfries

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Tampax ultra is the only tampon absorbent enough to let me sleep through the night on my heaviest day. Super and super+ are almost identical in their absorbency and are barely sufficient for those who have heavy flows. Ultra tampons let me go about my life normally without having to double up with smelly uncomfortable pads or bathroom visits every hour or two.

Absorbency beats OB Ultra and Playtex Ultra!

By 

from Ny

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Absolutely love this product! Tried them out when OB had discontinued their ultra and was extremely pleased with the protection! When OB came back on shelves their protection didn't seem the same as it was before. I decided to stick with these - for me they are the best ultra absorbency in the industry! I would love to have this absorbency level available throughout the Caribbean so please consider exporting it!!!

Regret using.

By 

from Brenham, TX

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Tampax, PLEASE CHANGE SOMETHING. About 15 years ago when I initially got my period, I used Tampax tampons. Then I discovered another brand that makes me much more confident about leak protection. Recently, my local store was out of my usual brand so I bought a box of Tampax Pearl. I do love that y'all have a combo box with light, regular, and super. That is what made me lean toward y'all when my main brand was out. Well, I should have just gotten some pads. The protection with these tampons are just as horrible as I remember. Why they expand in only one direction, I just do not understand. They turn into flat, useless tampons that do little to stop leakage. I wish I could get restitution for all the panties that have be ruined thanks to these garbage tampons. I truly don't understand how these work for anyone.

Best Tampon Ever!

By 

from Durham

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I used to use Equate cardboard tampoms and I had to constantly change my tampons. Tampax Pearl is truly heaven sent. I now have a peace of mind that I don't have leakage. I love the comfort, quiet wrapper, absorbency is amazing! I will be using this forever. I do recommend this to anyone that wants an easier cycle every month!

BRING BACK CARDBOARD LITES!!!

By 

from Karlsruhe / Germany

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I've been using Tampax cardboard lites for over 20 years. Though I'm a bit "older" the lites are the best choice for me; regulars are too big and it's almost a bit painful to use them... So PLEEEEASE - bring back the lites with cardboard, because cardboard is 1.) more comfortable and 2.) better for our environment. Thank you and regards from Germany - Leo.

Inserting this product sucks!

By

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Really? I cannot believe these reviews. Your new applicator is terrible and does not fully insert the product. I am changing after years of your using your product. I will not go back. You have lost a loyal customer.

FINALLY!!!

By

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

I am 44 years old and have just discovered Tampax Pearls Ultra. For.so many years I had to use super plus AND a super duty pad during the first half of my period. NOW.....one Pearl Ultra lasts me all day with no backup. No more getting up in the middle of the night to check/change.. ....THANK YOU TAMPAX!!!

Tampax is my first choice in tampons.

By

Comments about Tampax Original Tampons:

Tampax is my first choice in tampons. I prefer the cardboard applicator because it is biodegradable, comfortable and easy to use. I have been using Tampax for 30 years, I like and trust this product.
