Tampax Pearl Active Plastic Lite, Unscented
This product was a major dissapointment.

I’m sorry, but this was horrible. I normally use Playtex tampons, but since I just had my daughter, and then had a birth control implant put in, my flow is so light, that I can only use light tampons and playtex no longer produces them. So I figured I would give these a try, and I did nothing but waste my money. I have such a light flow, its like heavy spotting, but very light period flow. And yet, after 8 hours, this tampon had leaked through and almost soaked my liner completely, and yet after pulling it out, 99% of it was dry. That is horrible protection, and no reassurance at all when wearing it. I can feel that I have it in as well. I never went with this brand before because the way they open isnt giving a whole lot of protection. Thought that after 10 years it would have been fixed, but no luck.

never again

lets start by saying ... thank goodness i had other tampons of other brands and spare clothes in my gym bag or i would have been in big trouble! i purchased tampax pearl active because i had a coupon for them and boy am i sorry i did. ruined a good pair of expensive underwear, very nice gym pants, and shot my mood. the "slick easy to remove film" you put on the outside of these made it feel like it was coming out while lifting weights since there is straining. i thought "surely its just in my head, i just put this in!" so i kept going. then after i got off the bench and stood up i felt wet and went to the restroom. needless to say the tampon was coming out and the blood went AROUND ... not into the tampon. how embarrassing. even more embarrassing that i'm having to write this here. never ever ever will i ever spend another dollar on these terrible tampons. they don't seem to be for ACTUAL active people.

Next to no protection

This tampon is worthless. The store I ran to after running out of tampons last night was out of the normal Pearl Supers, so I grabbed this instead ("Hey, my job is active! This should work for that!"). Worst idea ever. Normally, Day 2 of my period would have me able to go about 5 hours without changing the Super tampon (around 6 hours it starts leaking a little, so to be safe I change it at 5); with these pieces of garbage, it had leaked through and soaked my underwear after 3, and 2-and-a-half more hours later had the next one just starting to leak. I might as well be using a Light tampon. I'm all for having active or whatever tampons, but at least label them accurately; if it can't absorb more than a Light, don't label it as a Super! It is comfortable, though, so at least there's that (probably because there's so little there to soak anything up, so you have nothing to feel). If you've got a super light flow (or if it was the last day of my period), then I'm sure it would be great.

The Best By Far

I've been using Tampa since I was 13. It is the only brand that I have stuck with. When the pearl came out I was excited to try them. I found that they had a very smooth insertion. No more cardboard! I loved the fact that I had minimal to no leakage using them. If you haven't tried these I highly recommend that you use these for your next cycle.

Bring back the NON-slender pearl active.

I had great experiences with the pearl active with the bigger applicator, but these 20% slimmer ones just leak within minutes. I tried several times thinking maybe I somehow inserted it incorrectly and I just wasted several tampons in the process. The tampon wasn't even near full, it just didn't absorb the blood.

Why did y'all change the size of the tampons?

Tampax discontinued their Slim Regular tampons that they use to have. This was very disappointing. The Active products were great as the regular absorbent tampons were very slim, like the slim regulars used to be and I could comfortably wear them. My daughter started her period at a very young age and could use the regular active tampons as well. I just bought two (now white colored boxes) 36-count boxes of active pearl regular tampons and the tampons are no longer slim, they are fatter. The box changed and so did the product. My daughter can no longer use them and they are uncomfortable for me now. And no, we can't use lite tampons, changing them every hour or two is unrealistic for a girl in elementary school. This WAS a great product, but my daughter and I can no longer use them and will be returning my purchase. Very disappointed.

Better than your average....

I already really like the regular Tampax Pearl tampon. The applicator design and fit is superior to other tampons.I like the fact that they are unscented also. The active Tampax pearl is even better because it moves with me. Not uncomfortable...in fact I can't feel it at all. Great for the mom on the go!

Really disappointed, Tampax

I’ve tried so many tampons and when I came across Tampax Pearl Active tampons, I decided to give them a shot because the applicator was 20% slimmer and they used to be my all time favourites but now I’m really sad because you changed the size of the applicator and I can no longer use them or tampons in general because of how fat the applicator was. ;( so sad I really hope you start continuing the 20% slimmer applicator tampons again.

Only for light days

These are perfect for when you're really light. I loved them at the very beginning and at the end. It's nice not to have to use something huge when you don't need it. With the larger tampons I felt like I was wasting them during my light times. Tampax Pearl Lite's even have a wrapper that holds up to almost everywhere you throw them without ripping. Even the glovebox!!

Most comfortable tampon!!!!

I just started wearing tampons about a year ago and had been using the U by Kotex. I was having serious pain and issues with those and went to the store and stumbled upon the pearl sport lites! Thank goodness I found this because it has truly made my life easier and MUCH more comfortable. I would suggest this product to anyone who has a very light flow, and who needs something like a mini sized tampon!!!

Bring back the slimmer version!

I am in my 30s and it honestly took most of my 20s to figure out what kind of tampon works for me. My flow varies a lot, sometimes in the same day, and I tend to experience discomfort when wearing tampons. I was so exited when I discovered Tampax Pearl Active because it was so slim but absorbed like it was full size. I thought finally I had found my kind of tampon and I could be comfortable without dealing with pads. Then the product changed. While the newer version may have some fancy new tampon technology it isn't as comfortable as the 20% slimmer version. I am so disappointed. I'm back to trying out new tampon brands in search of a slim tampon that I don't have to change every hour.

Smooth, Easy to use on light period days

I always use pads, on very rare occasions I use tampons - recently switched from regular (active) to Tampax pearl to Lite (active) - It's not painful just need to get used to the idea of something up there but very easy to use, comfort is A+ and it works! I recommend to others!!!!

Comfortable!

These tampons have amazing comfort. Best I've seen among all products I've tried. Although, they are not the most leak proof. I would recommend this to anyone who would keep them in their bag rather than trying to descreetly hide them due to their size. If you are looking for size rather than protection I'd suggest the Tampax Compacts.

Other usage...

I am finished with periods, post menopausal, however this product has excellent use as a bladder pessary for stress incontinence. Don't buy expensive incontinence products when an old fashioned tampon does the same thing. Just choose which size works best for you, regular or super. Use only when needed and remember to remove or change. It much less embarrassing at the checkout counter to buy "feminine hygiene" than to buy incontinent items. They are less expensive and do the same thing. They work for me!
