Plastic

Comfort yes, protection coverage with slight leakage. But what is really damaging is the plastic being used here. Pretty disgusted really about this transition. Here we are trying to cut down on the plastics in this failing world and you are adding to this issue for our convenience. There was nothing wrong with the cardboard applicator. Will never buy these again due to this environmental issue.

Why the plastic applicators??

Tampax---WHY are you switching to plastic applicators??? I HATE THESE!! Please bring back the cardboard that i have been using for over 30 years. This new plastic junk is just that -junk!!! plus, when using this plastic junk, i no longer get the same protection as before. It's as if the tampon has literally shrunk. I do not like this product and can't find the cardboard applicators anymore. If i can't find the cardboard applicators, I will switch to the Diva Cup. Works longer and better anyway. Bring back the CARDBOARD,, Please.

The answer to my prayers

Every store should carry these. Life before these tampons was a miserable affair every month, now I can function normally without feeling like a human crime scene. If you have heavy flow, this is exactly what you need. I will never buy a different brand, absorbance level willingly.

Hiking in Jamaica

I used the Super Plus pocket pearl while on a hike and swim in Jamaica and didn't experience any leaks. I was very concerned that my vacation was going to be ruined but it wasnt. I have an extremely heavy flow but I was protected from any embarrassing leaks.

Been avoiding using tampons for years due to a bad experience with irritation and uncomfortable feeling. My periods got heavier after I got my tubes tied. I knew I couldn't just rely on shifting pads. Searched Google reviews on tampons and decided to buy these in Super Plus. They are surprisingly easy to insert and I can't even feel it once its in. The best part is that I don't have to worry about embarrassing leaks. Love it! Won't go back to pads.

Pearl is Not for everyone

The pearl does not work well for me. I have a very heavy flow and super plus pearl last 1/3 to 1/4 time less than the traditional “cardboard” design. It’s sad that I am finding the better version harder and harder to find. I don’t care what my tampon looks like...protection and confort are by FAR more important and the “pearl” design falls short on protection.

Good, but not “heavy”

These tampons are great, but not for a heavy flow like the title would suggest. A regular is nothing for my flow. A heavy flow tampon pack should feature supers in place of the regulars and work your way to super plus and ultra after that. I wish this was the reality because many women like myself have a very heavy flow.

I don't know how long these have been in existence, but when I stumbled on them I had no ideal it would be a life saver! I've been hoping that one day that a more absorbent product would come along for heavy bleeders like me who have to wear a pad and a tampon at the same time. Thank you!!!

I love Tampax Pearl it will always be my go to must have. It helps !!!! But Lets face it. Its a Tampon! Its never going to be perfect!! Someone will always say Its to long, while others say short, to thick, to thin and so on. As a 40 yr old wife & mother I think I know what works best for me. But my body & mood continues to change thats another reason I appreciate Tampax pearl triple pack it gives me options.

No 8 hour hold day 2-3

On my heaviest 2nd and third days of my cycle this product for SURE DOES NOT LAST 8HOURS. On your heavy days no way you should want anything 8 hours. This product only lasts up to 1 hour on the 2nd and 3rd day of my cycle for years. Of course after 4th and 5th day you can wear these long as you want. There is NO tampon ON THE MARKET ANYWHERE that will hold any one for more than 2 hours on their heaviest days. There is no product on the market for that. But this is the largest size. I. Wouldn't be surprised if you need to make larger sizes. I STILL have to wear pad with these. To ensure dryness and accidents I'm NOT confident with any Feminine Product line without a pad all 3-6 days. No way id do it. It doesn't keep me dry and clean without back up pads.

The applicator is not good

I have always used Tampax in the cardboard applicator. This is becoming more difficult to find in the stores so I purchased the pearl. The applicator is comfortable for insertion but it does not withdraw the tampon from the applicator. I end up having to draw the tampon out of the applicator then inserting it in like an OB tampon. Not as clean of an approach. I also find the pearl to leak more. I just found some of the cardboard applicator ones in a local store and just bought 3 boxes to return to these products.

False leakguard protection

I have used this brand for many years. Always thought its faults are me using it wrong. After some research on this website i realized the faults are in product. States braid lock to prevent leaks, it doesnt, states up to 8 hour protection, it doesnt! I have a normal flow and use the super thinking it will absorb more and prevents leaks. I journaled my use on current period and results are in. This one sucks. Inserted a super one at 8 am, by 10:30 braid is soaked through n leaking in my underpants, tampon is only half soaked. Its 12:20 and only half is soaked including braid

Extremely Absorbent

These tampons are BY FAR my favorite I’ve ever used. These are the first tampons I’ve been able to wear overnight during a heavy flow and still have time in the morning to change it before it leaks. It absorbs EVERYTHING. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find them in most stores; I hope one day they’re able to be found everywhere!

The new package is poorly designed

The package makes it difficult to discreetly and easily toss away the tampon. I usually put the discarded plastic back in the package, but the plasticky packaging is too tight. Also, the print on it rubs off. Not only am I already uncomfortable and disgruntled because I've been wrestling with the package and not I've got blue fingers after it too.

Finally protection

I can't say thank you enough for creating a tampon for those of us who have an extremely heavy period!!! I finally discovered these a few days ago and am 31. (Sad I know, but I just didn't know!) I've always just went with super plus but was changing my tampon every hour on the hour! These are game changing. It may seem silly to say but I am very grateful for this absorbency!!! I wish I had known about these sooner!!!

Best tampon for heavy flow

My favorite tampon is Tampax Pearl Ultra sized. It's a great product. The application is really no different than a super plus sized tampon. I have always had to wear this size because a lot of days I bleed through a super plus within an hour. High school through adult hood, Ultra has been the size I hunt for in the grocery store. The peace of mind is worth it. Tampon braids leak with any tampon brand so that doesn't bother me for the purposes of this review. It does the job it's supposed to, comfortably and true.

HG of Tampons

I had been looking for a tampon that's comfortable, easy to "use" and provides maximum protection and Tampax Pearl Ultra is it! I was going through Super Plus absorbency tampons every 30 minutes and always worried about leakage, but not with these! I can go out and do whatever I need to do with confidence because I know I'm secure.

Coloring is key

So tell me why I go to the store and think I grab a box of Lite tampons because it's purple on the box and all the other absorbencies are sorted by different colors but no I grabbed Ultra. I can't even use Ultra on my heaviest days... You guys should really change Ultras color to something besides a darker shade of purple, like Pink, or Red. So now I have a box of tampons, that will never be used.

This product is perfect.

As a girl who has always had periods on the very heavy side, it has always been hard to find a product that doesn't leak and doesn't cause discomfort when wearing it. My boyfriend happened to bring these home for me and I was skeptical. I was super happy to find that it didn't leak after 20 minutes and it wasn't uncomfortable to wear at all. These are my go to every month.

Better than Others!

While I am not 100% happy with this product, its the only one that actually works for me. I have very HEAVY PERIODS, and PAINFUL PERIODS. I literally feel like my insides are being rung out like a wet towel. I'm sure others can relate! On my heaviest day, I'm changing tampons (Super or Super+) every two hours! Even then, I have leaks but, with other products it was worse! If only they could make the perfect protection for everyone! But at least I've found something that works better than anything else.

Hate new wrapping design!

I have been a faithful user of Tampax since my first need for them more than 20 years ago. They have always been comfortable and reliable. I have never had an issue until now. The new wrapping design terrible! I used to only have to glance in the box and grab exactly what I need. Now I'm having to practically dump the entire box out on the bathroom floor so I can find the right one. I have remedied that with putting each absorbancy in its own Mason jar. However, I keep all absorbancy in my to go pouch, so when I'm not home, it's the same issue. Yes, each one still has it's own color (green, yellow and purple), but the overall design makes it almost impossible to detect. I came here to see if anyone else had the same issue and also read issues with absorbancy. I too had notice some change, but thought it was just me. I absolutely loved Tampax, and I'm sorry to say, I may be trying other brands now that Tampax is no longer convenient or reliable.

I thought this product would be good but no. It has caused me severe pain. It feels like it's almost making me get worse cramps.

What's going on???

I once loved this product and the ultra now I'm always having protection issues especially the last 2-3 months. I've been using this product over 10 years. I used to get about 2-3 hours protection without leakage and now I barely get an hour. I've noticed that the tampon no longer fans out when it leaves the applicator. My flow has ALWAYS been heavy so that is not what's changed. What's going on?
