Not for me..
First of all, so much plastic in the packaging. And worse still, the plastic packaging is so hard to rip apart. Not user friendly at all.
The material is not comfortable, and I often suffer with vulval dermatitis after use, every single time. It never happened to me with other brands..
Try walking a dog
Walked my dog while on my p. Changed the pad before I went for a walk, got home to change again ( hour later ) and the pad was ripped my thighs rubbed so hard against the pad it was ripped up when I got home. Tho this isn’t the first organic pad I’ve used - other organic brands have sadly done the same. So I just use Kotex active now since I work out everyday on the move. Little disappointed in it because the pad looks great ... just couldn’t handle me walking for a hour ( fast walker ) ... so I’m just gonna use the pads I have left for when I walk around the house so I know it will last better? Overall not good for my active workout. Sorry.
Good but definitely not eco-friendly
I love this sanitary because it didn't cause me any irritation. It is easily accessible from where I am at. It feels soft. On another note, I learned that this one uses a lot of plastic on the packaging.

So much plastic wrapping in the box!
Was excited to find and try a product that was biodegradable. However, I was disappointed to find so much plastic used in the wrapping inside the box. Terribly misleading marketing for those of us trying to chose options which are more environmently friendly.

Long time buyer BUT no more
I've been buying TOM for over a year they used to be great & was the only pad I'd wear but the last couple months they have changed the pad it feels stiff & hard like your wearing cardboard. I've stopped buying this product as it no longer breathes at all. Really disappointed have now thankfully found another brand that delivers.
Product has changed
I first started using Tom Organic Liners a year or more ago and was very happy with the quality which I found to be superior to similar products. However, the quality has deteriorated. At first I thought that maybe there was a faulty batch but after my latest purchase I accept that the product is now of an inferior quality and I will no longer purchase.
The amount of plastic packaging on these is ridiculous. They've put them in a cardboard box and the pads themselves are biodegradable but each is also wrapped in plastic and there is another layer of plastic inside the box. As far as I'm concerned this is just a con to get environmentally conscious people to buy their products without knowing how much plastic is involved until they get home and open the box.
Horrible, cheap and tacky product. Most good reviews here are fake.
I am shocked at the appalling quality of this product. Its like a garbage bag lining with low quality absorbent material that disintegrates and fails and the garbage bag like plastic lining makes crunchy sounds. After reading the reviews here I tried this product and was horrified at the tacky quality and couldn't believe anyone would want to use this. Revisited the reviews to realise the ones recommending this product are fake and have written reviews for only Toms organics products. Gave a few left over to a couple of friends to try who were shocked at the terrible quality either. Had to bin the remaining unused bag. Do not recommend.
Bleach and chlorine free!
These organic pads are amazing. They're comfortable all night (or day) long. No nasty smells, no embarrassing rustling when I walk, no rashes or abrasions, and it's comfy soft on my delicate parts. Plus they actually absorb moisture properly and the wings stay put. Since trying these I have thrown out my other branded pads and vow to never use them again. I hope TOM organic takes over the female hygiene world because more companies should be pointing out the harmful chemicals in products we use.
Best Organic Quality - Can't live without it!
I am allergic to most female hygiene products - they literally melt my skin! I started using organic ones to avoid the uncomfort and had success. Ive triwd multiple organic cotton products but TOM organic is by far the BEST quality. Absolutely Faultless. It's a bonus that theyre not only good for me but for the environment too. I'm never turning back.
Swap to Tom organic now!!
I changed my sanitary products to the tom organic brand as I was having a very uncomfortable time with all other products. They attracted me as they are chemical free, and animal friendly which are all so important.
The pads are so comfortable I never know I'm wearing one, they are very thin but so absorbent I've never had and leaks or issues. If your not using the tom brand you need to be!!
These are great!!
I have super sensitive skin and using non-organic pads cause me to break out into a rash, however these don't!
They absorb my heavy flow really well and never once have they caused me to seep through and stain my underwear, even with a heavy flow.
The wings are so sturdy! They don't peel off or bunch up at all.
The pads don't have any 'wet dog' smell - just a slight fresh cotton smell which is almost unnoticeable. They also don't make my period smell any worse then it already is.
They're super thin and make little to no sound when you wear them.
Also, they're only a couple of dollars more than non-organic pads, so you may as well give them a go!
Audible crunchy plastic backing
I like that these have no nasties, but that is no excuse to poorly design/construct them. They have an unnecessarily long and baggy casing around the absorbent cotton filling. It isn't shaped well to fit to the body, so bunches up when moving. Worst of all the plastic backing makes audible crunching/rustling noises when when your body is moving. Not that my period is something to be ashamed about, but do we need to broadcast the fact and make life more uncomfortable at this time?
Surely there is a better alternative to crunchy plastic in a product that touts being natural? Make better designs!

Works well, not bulky
I've switched from using Libra ultra thins to these. As a long-term user of pads (I'm 52) and having tried out many other brands, I had stuck with the Libra brand for a couple of decades. So it was with a degree of nervousness that I picked up the TOM box. I'm so glad I did. They're truly ultra-thin, absorb well, and I like that they've used as little plastic as possible in the packaging (although I'd love to see more compostable/recycleable materials used). Nice too that I'm able to use organic materials next to my sensitive skin. They're not priced much higher than comparable (non-organic) brands.
Questions & Answers
How di you get them to stay put in your panties? The opaque extra piece tears the three adhesive (?) strips off. I had to use double sided tape to be able to use them! Not impressed!
Where do you purchase this brand.? Sounds Good. Do you have Super ? Haven't seen them here in WA Are they available over here?
Is it normal for these pads to have a foul smell even before wearing? I bought a packet and the smell when I opened one made me feel sick!
