Worst of the Worst


Hate this brand with a passion. Its too big, doesnt even keep together fully when you pull it out. When you do manage to get it out its pulls on your vaginal walls and hurts like a MF. I was and am uncomfortable using this brand of tampon then entire time that ive worn it. The applicator doesnt push the entire thing in so its not even worth it. Better to go with a another brand like U by Kotex or Carefree or Libra. Do not waste money, time and comfort on this product.

Purchased in July 2019 at Pak n Save for $7.00.

These are awful! The applicator doesn't fully insert them so they end up half out? Plus they dont stay in. They start to slide out after a few hours. The cotton material doesnt seem to have any coating on it so if you try to remove it before saturated it catches on the vaginal walls and pulls!! Ouuuuchhhh not to mention like other tampons are sleek and rigid these are too long and floppy. Useless all round.



I normally buy a supermarket own brand. Tampax are useless in comparison, I may as well not even use one of their products as I end up leaking after about 30 minutes!

New style


I have just used the new style.. Does not go high enough... When I sneeze it falls out
Does not fit well.. Have used for years but the worst... It's very embarrassing and makes me want to not use again

It falls out!!


I have used Tampax since I was 13...20 years later I am sourcing a new brand because whoever re-designed these tampons has never used them. The cardboard ones were perfect. Stayed in place, no leakage...the new ones?
Seriously...they are literally falling out.
I'm getting this very uncomfortable feeling and when I use the bathroom it's protruding. (Sorry for the graphic details) however this is a clean one I'm referring to. So, so disappointed. Bye bye Tampax xx



Worst applicator ever


For a well known brand, this is really bad quality. The cardboard applicator does not slide at all. When wearing the tampon does not feel comfortable. I would never buy or recommend these. I'm back to my old brand for sure !



The worst ever


Thought to give these a try worst mistake ever, i used these before going out to dinner the tampon leaked in about an hour ,hubby saved the day by lending me his iacket had to leave the restaurant ashamed due to the spill out on the chair the manager was understanding but I am never going to use these again. Dont falsely advertise that there is a skirt on the tampon to save from leaking . Dont ever use these

Used for almost 15 years


I first used this product when I was in early high school. I used other regular tampons but they never seem to feel comfortable. They are a little expensive but the applicator is quite good and means everything is much more clean. Sometimes I have issues with the cardboard applicator going soggy if I have been swimming or just out of the shower.
Most times easy to use, appicator quite good and much more hygienic than regular tampons.
Cardboard applicator goes soggy if considerably wet after swimming/shower. More expensive than regular tampons.

Tampax cardboard applicator tampons


The tampax cardboard applicator tampons are really good. Some people say that cardboard tampons can be scratchy and hurt but when I tried the tampacx cardboard applicator it didn't hurt and went straight in. When I pulled it out after and hour just to see and try and judge what time I need to change it wasn't even full but it just slipped out it was really really easy!! WORTH IT!!!! TRY RHEM OUT!!!!
I like that the tampon itself had no fuzzys and the tampin applicator was smooth and was just amazing (;

A great product especially for beginner users. They are easy to inset due to the applicator and easy also to remove. Different sizes available and they do absorb the fow well.
This is one of the only tampons i can find that actually have an applicator.
They are more expensive than other products.

I remember getting these for when i first started using tampons. These made it so easy and great for young girls struggling to work out how to 'use them'.

I also found they are cleaner. You don't have to touch 'down there' and get 'dirty' hands. So good for people with hygen concerns.

I dont' use them any more but i reconmend them for all young beginners to make it easier on them. I remember not being able to go the pool when i was on my monthies until i found these! Saved me having to explain to the boys why i couldn't swim :\
Very hygenic, easy to use, great for first timers, easy to open, great support, no mess on you or your hands eww
Larger than normal size ones - so larger storage & packaging in your handbag.
