1/5

Absolutely useless design of applicator

I have used tampax since starting my periods 30 years ago & have always found their design & comfort brilliant, I have never felt the need to change brand. The pearl applicator system is terrible & a waste of money, as on average I have to use at least three to four tampax before one inserts properly/comfortably. The extendable applicator is slippy & very small to hold, it also when pushed for insertion collapses constantly making insertion frustrating & fiddly, & if I am able to actually get the tampax to leave the applicator it inserts in the wrong position being very uncomfortable. Often the tampax will be removed still in the applicator or semi discharged, absolute wast of money & the worst tampax I have ever used. Please keep the cardboard tampax & tampax compak on the market, else i will be forced to change brands. Expect a lot more from the tampax brand.

Good

I love these. Make my period easier. It took a few months for me to get used to them, but now every time I see them on offer I will always purchase them. Only complaint is price, but then again that could be attributed to tax.

Applicator could be better

I love the size of the Tampax Compak, I work in an all male office so the size of this means I can discreetly pop one of these in my pocket before I go to the toilet. The only thing that lets these down is the applicator as the tampon can sometimes get stuck. I've found that if you make sure you pull the bottom out all the way and then put it back in and make sure it is underneath the tampon then you shouldn't have a problem. The tampons are comfortable and I've never experienced a leak or any problems once using them.

Useless applicator, infuriating.

The applicator is so badly designed the tampon gets stuck in the tube with no option be pushed further up, the only solution is to discard it, so infuriating! The only thing you have right about this product its the plastic wrapper which is great to open and doesn't look like a tampon.

Very comfortable

I've always struggled with finding a comfortable tampon to wear. I usually opted for a cheap supermarket own brand tampon but found these to be uncomfortable and had to take them out after an hour or so. Tampax pearl however are so comfy I don't know I'm wearing one. I would never go back to the cheaper versions after using tampax pearl

Would buy all the time if not so expensive for me

These are the first brand of tampons I tried and the only ones I would keep using if I could afford them. With my time of the month being super heavy to the point where I can't leave the house for the first 3 days the hospital put me on some tablets and I could finally try tampons and that's are the only ones that were comfortable and felt secure

I either use this product or the compact and both can't be beaten on application, comfort and protection. I usually buy in bulk when a supermarket has an offer. The only downside is they are a little pricey for a necessity.

No leaks

I am always very heavy on my period at the beginning, I have a very active job where I am constantly on my feet with not much access to a toilet. This makes it very difficult for me to keep changing my tampons on a regular basis. I use a number of different brands of tampons and none work quite as well as these. They don't leak even if I haven't managed to get to a bathroom for several hours. You can't feel them in place, and they're so much easier than the cardboard applicators. The tampons fit really well and seem to stay in place even when you're running around doing a fast paced job, lifting and any movement really. The only downside is the price, I think all pads and tampons should be free, as it is a natural process. Rather than making profit from every woman who lives because we all have a menstrual cycle.

Twirl the Pearl

Tampax has been my brand/application of choice for feminine hygiene since my teens. Wanted to try the Pearl variety, especially after the popular tv adverts bought to my attention. Disappointed with the plastic applicator, though smooth and easy to initially insert, trying to grip the outer tube whilst pushing the inner tube in was difficult and slippery.

Stressless

Ok it's here and we have plans to go out, plus a job interview. Stress. What to wear, what bag to take. Baggy trousers or skirt and a bag Mary Poppins would be proud of. No. Going out, fav white jeans and a over shoulder hip bag. Interview, slim black skirt and hand bag just for lip stick, purse and tampax. You might have a vpl but that's all you will see, when using your bag, it's nog going to look like the stuffing coming out of a teddy. The comfort of Tampax, the knowing nothing can give away the fact it's that time of month, plus the compact size fits in the smallest space. Stressless xx

I have never used these before but due to swimming lessons I decided to give them a go. Choose the 5 times smooth to minimise the difficulty and it does what is promised! Happy with it and would recommend to friends who had never tried these before.

Easy as 123

I used to really struggle with tampons until these came along. The Tampax Pearl range of personal hygiene products is amazing. If you are one of those people that can't stand using Tampons due to difficult application or discomfort, then you need try The Tampax Pearl Tampons. I have personally recommended these to famil and friends, I've always had a very positive feedback from them. Some of them were shocked about how comfortable, discreet and super absorbent they are. Most of all the best thing about these is the ease of application. I would recommend this product to anyone who has had application and discomfort issues in the past also for first time users. Have you already tried them? Please share your thoughts and experiences!

Review of the applicator

Product is generally very good and comfortable to wear and I've never previously had any issues with the applicators, however very recently i have found that the thinner part of the applicator goes through the bigger part to the degree that it actually comes apart and got stuck it quite an uncomfortable place and causing damage to a very sensitive area at that time. Now i know you can say that it was a one off and i agree due to never having this problem before but i also don't find the applicator that pushes it in very easy to grip either and feel like needs some work. I'm sorry to be a pain but i just wanted to give some friendly customer feedback on what would otherwise be a fantastic product.
