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. .
These are so good to use since they are orgainic. My daughter will only order these. Just make sure when ordering that you are purchasing these with an applicator. I've made a mistake before and have ordered some that don't have an applicator. Not a great mistake to make.
I love these ! I do have a heavy flow I guess lol I just found out b/c normal toxic tampons have stuff in them that help suck up some of the blood. With the organic tampons u don't have that so surprise surprise I'm a medium to heavy bleeder lol. If ur a medium or heavy bleeder then these won't work for ur heavy days but the light days they work fine for. For medium to heavy u will want the super or higher. I also noticed with these I have had less dryness and yeast infections but that's just me.
in an effort to not put chemicals near my most delicate parts, i have been trying out different natural feminine products. these are my favorite tampons. they have a cardboard applicator, they are free of bleach and chemicals, and do just as good of a job as the name brand bleach-y, chemical-y tampons.
