I used these for years and every month I would have pains, itching or redness after use come to find out I was having an allergic reaction to the chemicals that are in these that they DONT list! I have since switch to organic tampons and I can say I have never felt better on my monthly!!!

Best tampon I’ve used. Easy to insert. Gently comes out with no force or hurt ness. I don’t feel it while I’m exercising, working out or simply walking. Holds a lot and never leaks. Cheap but high quality in such a needed monthly product in my household

When it comes to tampons I won’t buy anything other than Tampax Pearls. As a child of the 80s I grew up having to use the miserable cardboard applicators. I know some people still use them but after using the Pearls I haven’t looked back.

Since having my daughter I tend to rely on the Supers for my heavy days but the regulars are so perfect for my lighter flow days. I’ve never had to worry about comfort with these as they insert easily and are just as comfortable to remove.

Honestly, I don’t use any other tampon and haven’t for years. I’m a Tampax brand devotee and I plan on continuing to be.

If I choose to use tampons these bad boys are my go to. I use the smallest size available. I really like the smoothness of the applicator and how easy it is to insert these. Regardless I find tampons to be too uncomfortable to wear unless I have pretty heavy flow. If you want unbeatable protection for things like sports these are definitely the best bet. The price isn’t horrible but I would love to see sanitary items like these be less expensive. Females can’t avoid using them and I feel a little bit exploited when these items are as expensive as they are. I generally watch for sales and try to combine them with coupons to get the best deal.

I've tried all the tampon brands out there (including store brands), and no other tampon protects like this one. The braided string allows for extra leak protection, which I love (and it has saved me quite a few times). They are also comfortable. The smooth applicator allows for easy and comfortable insertion. I always keep these on hand, and I don't like using other brands after using these. Overall an outstanding product that does what it is intended to do.

These are honestly the best tampons I’ve tried, the only issue I have is that I find myself replacing every two hours because they just start to feel uncomfortable.

To those of you love this brand good for you. This is the worst brand for tampons I have ever tried. It's hard for me to get them in and I've been using tampons for 11 years now. Once it's in it is painful and uncomfortable. I can feel it inside and constantly pushing it up more inside so I don't feel it as much. It also separates while its inside.

Tampax Pearls were the first brand of tampons I ever bought and they have not let me down so far. The regular tampons are just for that, though. If you experience a heavier flow, I suggest you go with their super ones. Unfortunately, I learned this from experience. However, I do wear these when I'm mid through my cycle or if I'm heading somewhere quick.

These are a life saver. TMI I normally have a heavy flow that last about 5 out of the 7 days that my cycle last and these come in handy. I like to use them while wearing a pad as well. They’ve never given me problems and I like the way the scented ones smell.

My favorite tampons! Very comfortable and easy to put on. I’ve tried several that made me feel uncomfortable but these were the best ones! You can’t feel anything it makes me think twice am I really on my period? Thanks Tampax! I definitely recommend this brand.
