Tampons
I didn't want to spend a fortune on my tampons, so I thought switching to the cardboard ones wouldn't be a bad change. I was wrong because using them is the most uncomfortable thing ever! Don't buy the Tampax Fresh Scent in the pink box!



So far, I find that the Tampax Pearl tampons are the best I have tried.



Anyone else?

I use OB. I guess to some people it seems weird at first, but you get used to it. And they are the ONLY kind I've used that have 0 leakage for me. And I like how easy they are to store in my bag, and travel with if I'm going on vaction. I love the no applicator-ness, they're convenient and discreet like that.

I really like the Pearl tampons. Very easy to use, easy to insert. Those are my favorites.

Nothing with a scent.
Also I find those aplicators which are meant to help, a pain!

So anything without them lol.

I'm trying to think of the brand that was so bad I couldn't remove the tampon and it took about 10 minutes ..it felt like childbirth. I never went near that brand after...hmm what were they....

eh I hate OB's! They feel like chilbirth to me but in the opposite direction! Actually no, it feels like getting raped with a wooden log (im guessing here), especially with supers. I can only stand tampax with plastic applicators, the smoother the better.

I use Pearl Tampons. No leakage and they're comfortable.

OB does make an applicator tampon.

Recently I've been using Playtex Gentle Glide regular unscented. My favorite ever was the Tampax 100% cotton natural ones but I can't find them anymore. I bought some all natural/organic tampons from Natracare that I plan on trying this month. Hopefully they're good - I like the idea of natural tampons.

i too am on the pearl bandwagon, they are just so fuss free (though i sound like a spokesperson saying that). i used to use the ob without the applicator like mundodabolsa said, but the pearl ones are easier.

I hate the leftover plastic aplicator waste, but I use pearl anyway. The carboard ones were uncomfortable, and the paper wrapper always got destroyed in my purse. So, pearl it is.
I'm considering trying OB next time around though.......
