RELATED FAQ

- Q: How long can I wear a tampon?

- A: When using tampons, it's important to choose the lowest absorbency necessary for your menstrual flow. And because the amount of flow varies from day to day, it's likely that you will need to use different absorbencies on different days of your period. Selecting the right absorbency comes with experience, but as a guide, if a tampon absorbs as much as it can and has to be changed before 4 hours, then you may want to try a higher absorbency. On the other hand, if you remove a tampon and after 4-8 hours white fibre is still showing, you should choose a lower absorbency.

Fails to insert

As per other reviews the insertion mechanism is an absolute shambles. I cannot believe Tampax have got away with this fail of a product for so long. Every now and again I forget how terrible these tampons are and give them another try. Well, I may as well buy non applicator own brand for less than half the price, not to mention the impact on the environment of throwing away the plastic applicator which fails to insert every time. The applicator just pushes in on itself and does not work at all, which should be a basic feature of the product. Awful.

No, I do not recommend this product.

applicator is the worst i have ever used

tampax is good but the applicator is the worst i have ever used. doesnt click, doesnt push the tampax out just klings to it for dear life. i have ended up removing the tampax from the applicator and going with old school insertion. Not hygenic as i would prefer but at least gets the job done. not a happy customer at all

No, I do not recommend this product.

Terrible Design

Having happily used applicator tampax for years i thought id give the new Compak Pearl a go.I wish i hadn't bothered! The applicator failed on EVERY tampon which was hugely annoying!I took the second box back and will be searching for an alternative now. Tampax....listen to your customers and ditch or fix this product...it's awful!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Rubbish

Over half of the applicators failed in my pack. Would waste my money on them again. A massive step backwards

Very disappointed in this product

I am a faithful tampax purchaser and have been for 19 years. I refuse to buy any other brand as tampax are the only I trust. But this product is terrible. I always buy pearl and saw the new compact pearl recently and thought brilliant new shape let's try these ( regular compact shape I always tend to pinch myself)From the get go it was a night mare. I read all the instructions. Let the applicator click, but all of the tampons in my box failed to insert correctly. I ended up having to insert it manually. What a mess. Not what you need when your in a hurry. I couldn't believe tampax would allow such a poor item on the shelves. Please re design this product as it is not living up to the standards I know and expect of Tampax

No, I do not recommend this product.

One Applicator was Actually Empty

Quite possibly the worst tampon I've ever used. I'm from the states and have been using Tampax original for my whole life, happily, and have even used the compak equivalent (Pocket) in the US as well. Bought these over in London thinking they would be the same, but wow. Not a single applicator actually pushed the cotton out as expected, so I had to adjust manually every time. There was even an empty applicator- kid you not- which is unsurprising really given the ineffectiveness of the applicator in the first place, the cotton could've just fallen out. Wow. Truly in disbelief at the terrible quality of this product from a brand I've loved and sworn by for so long.

No, I do not recommend this product.
