Rated 2 out of 5 by Love the applicator, hate the tampon! Like the Click tampons, these applicators are excellent and easy to hold onto. They're extremely smooth, which makes insertion very easy without any discomfort. But, however, and actual tampon itself was poorly designed. It did expand all the way, and absorbed most of my period, as most tampons do. But as I took it out, the tampon began to fall apart. The string was just looped into the actual tampon, without a knot, so it fell off as I was taking it out. As I gently pulled the actual absorbent part out, the cover that was holding together the tampon also fell off. The Click ones do the same thing. They're just same tampons, but different applicators! It would be nicer if your strings were actually sewn into the tampon like the Tampax ones. I still wouldn't recommend these, because the actual product is just poorly designed. I have never had these problems with tampons from other brands. November 25, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Less tampons, same price So you reduce the number of tampons in each box and slap "BIGPAK" on it so we won't notice? Didn't work, sorry. Each box used to have 36 tampons, now it's down to 34. With no price reduction, your tampons are no longer the cheapest option. Which wouldn't really bug me but treating us like we're morons by pretending it's a bigger box is what got me. No longer buying your tampons. August 14, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good features..but scared to use anymore. I started using these tampons and I find that they work good and are comfortable to insert and wear, however multiple times I went to take it out, and the string came out, but the rest was stuck in me. It wasn't even because they were dry. I'm sure you can imagine my shock!! Too concerned to use these anymore. Will be switching back to playtex. August 6, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by THIS PRODUCT IS EVIL These tampons suck... I've been using tampax most of my menstrating years.. Which is 19 years now... Never before have I had this problem.. The first time I bought this brand was last week bc I knew aunt flow was coming soon... Three times in the past two days, they have literally been stuck inside me. I pulled the string and the strings came out but no tampon. Not only does that hurt but it's very freaky. I thought it was bc it was too dry when pulling out but it was soaked and the tip was stuck to my cervix and I had to flush my vagina out with warm water to get those cotton fibers out that were clinging to my insides. I am absolutely horrified over this experience, as I am to freaked out to ever use a tampon again. My vagina and cervix hurts and it feels raw and it hurts so bad to tighten it.., I could go into great detail about how it feels like I've been violated with a torture device but I'm sure most women can imagine without the details of how horrible this feeling is. I know there are still fibers up inside me and I don't have insurance to get checked out by my OBGYN. So NEVER EVER WILL I EVER BUY KOTEX PRODUCTS AGAIN. Toxic shock can kill...Guess it's time to invest in a diva cup. August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Changer! Okay so I am an expert tampon wearer. I hate pads can't deal with them so naturally I decided tampons were a good fit. Well after going through many different brands, sizes, shapes, and applicators. I would always find something wrong with them. I didn't like the tip of the applicator, or the way the tampon was shaped, or how large it was in my pocket. I even tried switching to menstral cups, and that was a disaster! But I have never been so in love with a product before. For someone who has to use them a lot (lots of nose bleeds) it is perfect. For someone who only wears them during the day, they are perfect. If you only use them for swimming in the summer..again amazing! The easy grip on the applicator helps to prevent the awkward two hand shove that sometimes takes places with tampons that stick. And the sleek design of the tampon prevents the awkward one leg on the tub, squat, and kagel you need with larger tampons. It's amazing and I cannot sing its praises enough! July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRODUCT I wouldn't definitely suggest this to 1st time tampon users. They're comfortable & easy to put in. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy for 1st timers! I've read so many horror stories regarding tampons my entire life. For me, it made sense to me to stay away and use the traditional pad. I had my very first period when I was 8 years old so from jump, tampons were a no-no. Fast forward 12 years later, I was ready for something different. I was tired of feeling like I had a diaper on during my period. So I decided to graduate to something new. I ordered the sample box of tampons and I fell in love. I was wary of the potential pain because I'm still a virgin, but it wasn't bad at all. I didn't feel it and there was no discomfort. I did worry about leaks (first time anxiety) but I was proven wrong.My advice would be to do a little bit of research first. I can't count the number of tutorials I've watched on proper insertion. It's nothing to be timid about but I do think it's in your best interest to educate yourself. Saves tears, frustration, and most importantly, pain. July 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Graduated from click to the sleek U! I used to use the Kotex clicks for years. They were awesome! Short and discreet. But as time went on I noticed they started to leak through at times and I had more difficulty inserting them. Then I noticed the sleek U tampons! At first I wasn't sure and it took a while to buy them. Was hesitant in the longer size compared to the clicks for discreetness. However after buying them I loved them! I absolutely love the rubber grip on the tampon so I can hold it better to guide it in. Perfect fit every time. And it just feels fancy. Lol I feel the clicks were good when I was younger , but now that I am 30, and had a baby last year, the sleeks are more for me. Great job Kotex! July 17, 2015
