Waste of money

I’ve been using tampax for 20 years without any problems. I thought I’d try compak pearl for a change. Opened one up, pulled the plastic until it clicked then inserted it. Removed the plastic applicator and the tampon was still inside it. Tried with another but same thing happened. Out of the whole pack only 2 tampons actually worked properly. Please stop producing this rubbish and charging more for a product that doesn’t work.

Wow

Super impressed by these! First ever tampon I tried! Was super nervous I thought tampons would hurt but no super easy to insert and not uncomfortable whatsoever! Very discreet when out and about too so discreet can even put one in my pocket when out and about! Super cute packaging too! Love how bright it is makes me excited to use them! Really stand out to me on the shelves! I have tried other brands of tampons but I find them uncomfortable compared to these ones! Highly recommend I don’t even wait til they are on offer cause they are THAT good! Wouldn’t wear any other.

Dreadful

Even after applicator 'clicks' into place it still malfunctions and only pushes the tampon half way. Requiring manual readjustment of the tampon as it's wrongly and often uncomfortably placed. The whole point of buying tampax and not some cheap own brand tampons is for the ease and confidence that you won't have to manhandle the tampon in to place... obviously not the case any more. Very dissapointed.

These are possibly the worst tampons I've bought. The 'click' feature is unnecessary - it doesn't work - while you're lucky if the tampon expands while inserted. Often the tampon is still inside the applicator when you pull it away, or it doesn't insert the tampon fully, making leaks likely. Waste of money. The gimmicky design is just frustrating. Won't buy these again.

Worst applicator ever

I was so happy to FINALLY find tampax compak in Norway - I've been using them for years in Portugal and always have to bring several boxes with me to Norway. Now, I was in for a surprise with this new applicator. The application takes longer than with the more traditional compak applicator - it's a bit less hygienic and more complicated, but I managed. Today though, I could not get the tampon out of the applicator at all! I had to manually remove it and and then use it without the applicator. It was really messy and uncomfortable. As a designer I don't understand how you can release something like this. Please, please, pleaaaaase fix it.

Awful for active people

I have been using tampax active for years, sadly I cannot get these anymore so I have been using the tampax active pearls. These are awful, I’m very active and these leak within 10mins, I don’t feel comfortable wearing them or cannot work out as long as I want to because of the leaks, I don’t really have heavy periods either.. bring back the old tampax active tampons!!!!

Bad applicator. Don't use.

These are the worst tampons I have used. The applicator is too short and doesn't allow you to insert the tampon high enough. Really bad design. You end up using your finger to push it up higher which defeats the purpose. I was really disappointed with these and so have gone back to my standard tampons.

Terrible since redesign

The new applicators are awful, yes I know to pull the tube out until it clicks-it’s not a knowledge gap on my part. Unfortunately the inner part of the tube doesn’t know it’s supposed to push the tampon out and keeps collapsing back in. I thought it may be one of those things you perfect a technique for after a few tries but now I think I’ll have to change tampon brand. And as for leakage prevention, how come the string is leaking but the tampon is white? This is not leakage prevention to me!!

Plastic Applicator

The plastic aplicator does not release the tampon and remains in the tube when removed. You then have to take it out and insert with your finger. Not what I want to do when bleeding. Also, when the world is trying to use less plastic why are you moving away from a perfectly useable cardboard product in favour of a non biodegradable product.

Not great

I liked the look of these tampons, they seemed very discreet. However like many others I am often unable to insert far enough thus wasting several in a pack and feeling a little discomfort when I am successful. I am not impressed with this design at all and will go back to my original tampons.

Faulty design

I'm on holiday and I've gone through about 6 tampons because they fail to work properly. The plastic end collapses and doesn't push the tampon in far enough. I eventually got one to work but out of sheer luck. Clearly a design flaw that needs to be reviewed. I definitely won't be buying these again.

Needed these to be effective, let me down.

It's simple - A tube containing a condensed wad of cotton wool or sort. An inner tube propels said wad out of the end and into intended position. Pearl is inefficient and in effect causes discomfort, waste and expense. Like many, I am unable to insert far enough. A severe design flaw. It's making Tampax money, they'll soon design something else to replace Pearl and no doubt we'll need to buy that as well. ....as it is a need. My advice to the product designers -Try before you buy.

So comfortable

Tampax compact pearl are so comfortable, that I don't know that I'm using one. You can definitely tell the difference between the tampax compact & the compact pearl. The normal compact doesn't expand as well as the pearl & this causesite leeks. Where as the pearl even if full DOES NOT leek & it fits better to.

New applicator doesn't work

The telescope applicator system doesn't work very well meaning tampax doesn't go in properly. My recommendation would be buy the large pearl tampax instead. Much better product more comfortable and applicators works! Note- If you get the applicator to work correctly, about 25% of the time. It does give you good protection and comfort.

I always buy Tampax and thought I'd try the pearl ones for a change, I couldn't even get on with the first one, the applicator wouldn't push par enough up the tube to allow the tampon to be pushed out the end :/ have to say it's put me off this particular kind of tampax

New favourite tampon

I used to always buy the same brand of the Lil Lets tampons, as the packaging is beautiful and they're very easy to insert. These have taken over as my new favourite as they are smaller, the packaging is pretty also and they are so discreet and smaller than my go-to. They have replaced the number one favourite of mine!

Congrats - you just made periods worse!

I'm usually far too lazy to bother leaving reviews on the internet. Honestly, I'm satisfied with a grumble away to myself or a friend but as a long time user of Tampax products added to the sheer level of annoyance this brings me...here I am! These.are.awful! Firstly, the last thing you want is a tampon falling apart in your hands during application and this has happened no less than a half dozen times. What?? Secondly, while I appreciate the funky new packaging there really was NO need to change it from a plain yellow. It's a tampon, not an accessory. Tampax, you seem to not only have ignored the age old adage of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' but gone one step further and made a perfectly functioning product worse! :(

Applicator is the worst

I've bought these a couple of times and every time the applicator doesn't work properly. After clicking it open fully and then trying to push it the applicator inevitably in clicks and more often then not pinching skin when it does. Not a good experience and will go with regular Tampax.

Awful product. Doesn't work at all

Had to use these for a couple of days as they were the only ones I could find when my period appeared suddenly on a business trip. I normally use Lilets and everything about Lilets is better. Tampax applicators use loads of plastic packaging, not easy to insert, they don't eject properly from the applicator, so they just come back out of you with the applicator - I ended up having to take them out of the applicator and insert by hand. Even using the super version, they don't expand well, they only lasted about 30 minutes before leaking. Threw away the rest of the pack when I got home, not even worth keeping for emergencies!

Great tampon, bad rep

No idea why there are so many bad reviews, has worked perfectly for me every time. Have used other applicators in the past and could never get them to work in a way that would be comfortable, but these are much easier and much better to use. I like the designs on the wrappers but also makes me wish it was a little more eco friendly, but this is the only negative I can find in this product.
