I have tried many different types of tampons and this is the only one that seems to stay in place and not let so much leakage through. I can buy anywhere it is convenient because they are at every single store. They are not expensive and they are even better price for the coupon or are on sale. They don’t make you smell and the braided line it really does help with excess leaking.

I received these a long time ago as part of a voxbox and then received another box in the mail as a prize. They have been one of my favorite brands ever since trying them out. They are super affordable and work great. I love the packaging and definitely recommend to others

I absolutely love Playtex they are one of the best, longest lasting tampons I have ever used and infact I still use them for my periods. I would definitely recommend them to other girls and women especially if you are out and about a lot

This is the only tampon I use. The plastic applicator is great. The value is great. Protection is amazing. They make R, S, S+. I don’t have to use anything more than super. The protection is literally amazing.

The only tampons I have used for almost 5 years now! I've never had an accident or leak. They absorb everything and are very comfortable. I never even realize I have it in when I'm wearing these. I have never had a problem with these and I recommend them to every woman! And you can get them anywhere.

These are okay, but I often got leaks while using these tampons. I'm not sure what the problem is, but every time I wear these for a physical activity, they leak. If I use one for a normal, only moderately active day, then i have no leaks. I'm not sure if it's just a me problem or what.

These are great to use! Easy to use and does exactly what it they claim. I will not use any other brand. You can find them at stores like walmart, target, cvs and are usually affordable. Overall, great product.

Started using these as a cross country runner in high school! I've tried most of the "active" labeled tampons and Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ are hands down the winner! Going on ten years strong! 💪

These are my favorite tampons. They are extremely comfortable. If it weren't for the string, I couldn't feel that it was there at all. I have free mobility with these and i really appreciate that. This next part may be tmi but i think it's important. The applicator/container or whatever you want to call it is great. I think we have all had some type of experience (hopefully not every month) of those god awful cardboard contraptions but these are nice rounded, smooth plastic applicators. I have a fairly light period so i may not be the most reliable source as far as leaking but i haven't had any problems with leaking. sometimes it will soak into the string a little bit but that's only if i wear it all day, and even then, it doesn't get on my undies. I'm not really sure if the "light scent" does anything but i like that it doesn't smell medical or chemically like some tampons. i also appreciate that these come in a variety of sizes in boxes so i can get a box with just enough for one period or i can get one that will last me several months. I would definitely recommend these and they will continue to be the only tampons i buy.

This is honestly the only tampons that i will use. When using this product i never feel discomfort or that my period is holding me back from my everyday life. The playtex sport tampon has a string that is tied in a knot at the end which prevents the string from coming apart and fraying. This knot on the string also helps its users to remove the product better rather than being afraid of braking the string and causing other problems. I play many sports and exercise daily, my family goes on hikes and is constantly in the outdoors. This tampon can be used for a very long time and is very trustworthy. With this tampon my time of the month goes smoother, and is less of a deal than if i didn't have this amazing product.

Has anyone experienced a yeast infection after using these. I'm kind of nervous to use them because I've heard using scented things can give you an infection
Is there any difference between the playtex sport and this one?
