Reviews
Tampax Pocket Pearl, Regular, Plastic Tampons, Unscented - 16 ct is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 450.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from New applicator is awful The new applicator is just terrible. The "pull and click" plinger is too short, and often doesn't lock all the way, even when you hear the click that is supposed to ensure it is locked into place. These 2 things combined cause the tampon to become stuck in the plastic tube it is housed in, and not insert. So, when you remove the applicator, the tampon comes out too. Most of the time the tampon is only about 1/2 pushed out of the housing, even though the plunger is fully depressed. About 90% of the time the tampon must be removed manually and inserted with fingers. So gross. I will never buy these again. Their old design was great. This one stinks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst tampons ever. These are the worst tampons I have ever used. Half of them won't even insert properly, so be sure you bring about 3 spares for every change you'll need. Take note, when I say they don't insert properly, I mean that the applicator is pure junk. It doesn't even push it out entirely, and when it does it's not inserted far enough so I have to push it in myself. They leak, and are just flat out terrible. I usually love tampax products, but this is just a serious waste of money. I'd be better off with an ob. Don't ever buy this product unless you enjoy being soaked in blood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Application issues I'm reading the reviews to see if it's just me using it wrong but I can see it's a common issue and the responses tampax gives back, they are not understanding. When you do extend the tampon completely so it does click then go to insert it, the applicator collapses on you (to go back to pocket size) I've gone through and wasted multiple tampons because of this issue. I find myself bringing 3 tampons to the restroom with me because I don't have faith the first one will work. I definitely do not recommend this brand until it is fixed. It's a bummer because I love everything about this product but this issue is enough to make me not get them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT Buy I have never written a review on tampons before, but I thought I needed too because I have had such a bad experience with the Tampax Pocket Pearls. The applicator does NOT work. It is beyond frustrating trying to put these tampons in because the tampon does not get pushed all the way in due to the faulty applicator and makes it VERY uncomfortable. I know how to use these so it is not a user error. I have been wearing tampons for several years now and have never had as many problems with my tampons as these. I have read other reviews that say the same thing. DO NOT BUY THESE! VERY unhappy customer and will DEFINITELY be telling my family and friends!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Applicator I never leave product reviews, but after using this brand for years without a problem, I figured I had to this time. I have no issue with the feel of the product once in and I like the packaging, but the applicator is useless. Almost every time I use it, the applicator collapses and fails, requiring me to either throw the product away or repeatedly retry - something you really don't want to have to do with a tampon. This issue is making me choose Kotex U over Tampax, which is a decision I never would have previously made. Tampax - figure out your applicator issue. Clearly given the number of reviews stating this, it's a product issue, not a user issue

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful...Bring Back The Compack, Please! I went to 3 stores yesterday looking for Tampax Compack and could only find these. I decided to give them a shot...BAD decision! Not only have I wasted 1 in 3 because of the poorly designed applicator (nothing to grip onto once it is extended or the tampon stays in the top half) but the actual tampon is smaller and far less obsorbant. Its 2:30 am. I just changed my tampon for the 3rd time since going to bed. I was looking up where I can buy Compacks on my way to work tomorrow and discoved these shotty things have actually replaced the product I have relied upon for the past 10 (?) years!! Maybe I'll try the store brand compact. They can't be any worse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tampax Pocket Pearl not recommended I have always used the older version of this product- Tampax Compak, which are the best tampon's I have ever bought. I tried the newer Tampax Pocket Pearl, THEY ARE TERRIBLE! The APPLICATORS FAIL at least half the time. The applicator mechanism just doesn't work right! They are also much shorter than the Tampax Compak, and LEAK much easier. They don't last 8 hours. The reason I bought Tampax Compak was because they were discreet here and easy to hide. Tampax Compak were different and better than any other brand or product I have tried. I would not recommend Tampax pocket pearl and I will not buy this product again. No, I do not recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money!!! Who knew I could feel this much rage over a tampon? This new redesign is horrible. It doesn't fit like it used to, it leaks, the tampon doesn't even go all the way up the canal because the applicator is too short. This is ridiculous! And also, I am paying the same for fewer tampons. I get that things are more expensive-- OK fine, lower the amount in the packaging. But don't change the design, something that was never broken in the first place!!! Oh and also, the stupid new wrappers bleed ink all over my hands. Great job Tampax. Seriously. I was a loyal Tampax customer for years, but this is it for me if you don't change them back.
