These tampons were very easy to use and were fairly comfortable to wear. I was able to place it and forget it. I had no leaks either which is a big positive! I can certainly see using these during the summer when I am out walking more and when I'll be chasing my kids at the park more often! And though I haven't tried them while exercising, I plan to and hope to have just as good of results as while just out walking and being around the house.

One unexpected thing - there is a scent to them. I have never experienced a scented tampon like that before, but it is nothing unpleasant, was just surprising.

I like using playtex sport because it keeps me leak proof even when I do intense workouts. They are comfortable to use and don't scratch on the way in (I know TMI). Bottom line, I would holy recommend these.

Girls if you are looking for the best protection out there. Playtex is the best box to use . I received a box from Influenster complimentary for testing purposes! For the #GoVoxBox truth is I hardly use these types of tampons but once I received these I was like hey lets try these out. They are not as bad as some other tampons. They are comfy and they protected me throughout the whole day! It also helps relieve that period odor, which is how my hubby knows I am on my days haha! it has a fresh nice scent which is also nice and handy because no one wants to smell like periods!

I love Playtex sport tampons so I was really excited when I got these complimentary of Influenster to test.. BUT I was really disappointed to see that I got the scented ones. I really don't like scented tampons there's no reason to need your lady parts to be scented during your period. Pointless. Also there have been some studies proving that the use of scented tampons "don't cover up the odor and can cause an even worse odor and can produce irritation causing redness and itching, leading to yeast infections."

These tampons are Awsome if you play sports and don't want to worry about your period when playing. I like that they come in four absorbent ranges because anybody can use them and be confident that they will be protected. The easy application and the flex fit are the reason why these work so Awsome. I love that they also have odor shield because they help me feel secure that I don't need to worry about smells. The scented part is cool because they smell really nice. Overall I like them and recommend them for active women or women who want something with odor shield.

I have been using PLAYTEX all my life since I...as they say, "became a woman". This is the only brand of feminine products I use because they truly work and keep me fresh all day. This new Fresh Balance is great for when I'm working out. They move with me and I'm not left feeling uncomfortable 'down there'. I have had no leaks as I have had with past brands. The price could be better, but when you want a product that works and keeps you fresh, clean, and not leaky--then you'll pay the extra couple of dollars per month. This is the best tampon on the market.

I have always been a loyal customer when it comes to Tampax Pearl, that all changed after using the Playtex Sport Fresh Balance (thanks to Influenster and the #UniVoxBox). Now I can be active and still enjoy myself at "that" time of the month. I like how the Playtex sport Fresh Balance is lightly scented, plus the scent isn't that overwhelming. We all know that leakage is a major issue and concern, but with the FlexFit interlocking fibers this helps to trap leaks. No more leaks so you feel protected. Overall, this tampon is designed for any woman!

First impression: YES!! I could not believe an entire box of tampons was inside my Vox Box!!!! Tampons are so expensive, and honestly, a girl uses a lot of them. I'm not very sporty but I am very active, so I'm excited to see how these work! I've also never bought anything scented before, so I'm curious to see what that will be like.
After use: BEST FREAKING TAMPONS!!! They smell great (lol), they feel great, and the individual packaging is cute, different, and discreet. These will be going on my shopping list!!

I received the Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons, regular, in my SpringFling VoxBox worked ok. I don't know if I am different or what but they didn't work as well as my normal brand. The tampon is short and absorbs less than I am used to with a regular tampon. Highlight is that they did smell good. I know, I know, there I go smelling things again but hey they are "Fresh Balance" they are scented! I do have to say I didn't notice any odor...but then I don't normally! Still worth using but I wouldn't buy unless my normal brand was all out.

I always use the Sport Tampons by Always because it holds more than the non-sport ones. I decided to buy the scented one just for a try. The first I notice when I opened the wrapper was how strong and unpleasant the scent was. It has a smell like newspaper and baby powder mixed together. Though it did absorb more, like I mentioned since it is a made for sports, the smell was very unpleasant. I think you will do just fine without the the scented tampons since everything is plugged in so there is nothing to drain for the world to smell.

I personally don't use tampons but are these good ? I work out a lot and there's times that I thought tampons would be more comfortable to work out but I don't use tampons. Would you guys recommend this product?

Does anyone else use super normally? I got regular (I assume everyone else did too in the UniVoxBox) but I think maybe that's why I need a liner with wearing these.
