Once it dawned on me that the tampons I was putting in my body were not organic and natural, I made the switch to these. My first pack of 16, I wasted about 6-7 trying to put them in. It just would not work. The friction between the cotton and the applicator prevent the applicator from sliding the way it's supposed to. Finally I tried pushing the tampon out almost halfway before inserting, and it worked! Sometimes I even put coconut oil on the tip to ease the process. But once you get it in properly, it wears like any other tampon. You can't feel it inside you, but I will say that it falls easier than other non-organic tampons when using the bathroom regularly. Typically have to change it every or every other time I use the bathroom. Overall good product and I'll stick with it for health reasons.
Ever since I had kids and started getting more aware of all the toxins I put into my body I figured I'd give these a shot based on all the rave reviews and health benefits of this natural material and I'm happy I did because now I'm addicted! One regular will last me from 6am-way past the recommended 8 hour max! I ran out of these and tried going back to Tampax but quickly wound up re-ordering these on prime because of how comfortable and absorbent these are. I never thought I'd feel so passionate about a tampon! But these are amazing! I think my body rejects the chlorine and bleach found in normal tampons. These don't have any of those harsh cancer causing chemicals and I think my body knows it. The packaging scared me a little because it seemed like a cheap paper bag but I guess that's because they are trying to be "green" and use some kind of recycled material. Other than that, the package of three boxes will probably last me about 6 months. So while they might be a little pricey, in the long run I am saving money because I used to buy a box of multi size Tampex per month and now I'm good to go with a few of theses regular ones no matter what kind of day it is! Thank you for making a healthier version of this necessity!!! Must be made by a woman!
I've been looking to live a more "organic" lifestyle when it comes to what I'm putting in and on my body. I decided to buy these and I love them!!!! I feel better knowing that I'm not putting toxins in places where toxins shouldn't be. However, the applicator on this is so lame and annoying!!!! I miss the ease of a plastic applicator, and even some cardboard tampons have applicators that just slide smoothly but these need to be fixed. That's the only reason I gave them 4 stars.
I actually use less tampons now that I use these, vs using Tampax. (strange but cool) These are very long, not like the conventional tampons. So if you have a tilted uterus you may feel some discomfort, but you'll get used to placement so it's more comfortable. I've used the regular and super of these and love love love them. .
I have to amend my previous review after finally using the last of these expensive tampons and being able to move on to something better. I bought both regular and super. At first I agreed with other reviewers who said there is a trick to using the applicator. Based upon my experience now, I say sometimes there is no problem, but then other times it takes two hands, a diagram, a prayer and an act of God to get these things to function as they should. They also don't expand widthwise like a typical tampon, but lengthwise, so if you're not able to get to the bathroom at the exact moment you need a change you can expect leakage and the discomfort of the feeling that it's falling out. If you decide to purchase I wish you luck, but I'm moving on.
Don't you just hate when you go to pull your tampon out and it is sticking to you :( Ugh the worst. That would be the rayon blend. Rayon is nothing short of a chemical soup laced with artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene, polypropylene, and propylene glycol, contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness, and infertility. So I did some research and pure 100% cotton is the way to go. I tried a few 100% cotton tampons but they just did not seem to absorb my flow. I would go through a box a day and I am far from a heavy flow.
These tampons absorb well. I do have to agree with some of the other reviews that sometimes the applicator gets stuck and it is hard to push out the tampon. That would be my only complaint. Other than that I absolutely love these and for now on I will be using them!
I hope my review has been helpful to you. It encourages me to continue writing and updating my reviews. Please leave a comment if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer if I can be of help.
After I learned the truth behind major mass market female hygiene product producers, I will never ever buy non organic cotton tampons ever again. This is a real shame that an industry that produces products of such intimate and personal nature is at the same time one of the most obscure and sinister. I'm sorry to be so graphic but to me it is the same thing as taking a spoonful of pesticides and putting it in your mouth and keeping it there for a couple of hours. Would you do that? Probably not. You know it's not safe. Same here. Don't put anything that is bad for you inside your body. You might be doing ok now, but there is a chance that those mass market tampons are affecting your body and you don't even know it. The cotton they use is sprayed with the worst chemicals you can imagine. Treat yourself well, treat this planet well, buy organic products whenever you can. Quality-wise there is no difference. I love this brand and works excellent for me.
I have been searching for a new natural tampon for quite some time and these tampons have stopped my search!
These tampons are so easy to use and are comfortable during use. I love that They are natural and free of dyes, bleach bland perfumes. Having those things inside my body just really bugs me. I used to get horrible pains with tampon use with previous unnatural brands, but I don't have those pains with this brand. I have been using this brand for 2 or 3 cycles now and I am so pleased. I have been recommending this brand to friends and will continue to do so. That are just so great, I can't say it enough lol!
