  • "They are very comfortable which isa great because I'm an active person, also its great to test them out because they are not that cheap" in 56 reviews
  • "I do not use tampons often, but I still tried these out and while they worked well with little leaking, I can't give them more than a D. I don't trust scented tampons and feel that they are not good for women and no one should really ever use these." in 42 reviews

hands down the best brand I’ve ever used for tampons. these tampons are comfortable and sometimes I forget i’m even wearing one. this brand is affordable and can be purchased practically anywhere — including Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc. I’ve been using this brand for YEARS and plan on continuing.

I have been using these for years, even when I’m not in a sport. They are very comfortable and easy to insert. I like how this box comes with regular and super-sized because I often finding myself needing both during my cycle. I would recommend these to someone who is first trying tampons and someone who is looking for tampons that are comfortable.

I received these tampons a few years ago in my Spring Fling Voxbox and was unsure of how Influenster worked so I never reviewed these. I LOVE these tampons. They are by far the best. I never leak and they don't hurt. I used these before I had received them and I still use them today. Best tampon ever. So comfortable. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

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! 💪

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.

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.

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.

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.
