Reviews For Super Applicator Tampons
Based on 11 Reviews
I love these tampons. I started having a lot of issues with yeast infection and vaginal itching after having my kids. Every time I use a tampon that isn't 100% cotton I get so itchy and uncomfortable. I made the switch to organic cotton tampons and I love them but they are pricey. Getting them on Thrive saves me a little over a dollar per box.
Absorbency and dependability I get from commercial brands rolled up in to an all-natural package but it actually SHORTENED my periods!! Which helps off-set the slightly increased cost.
Not too bad
I wanted to try some organic tampons because I am trying to be a little healthier. I would say the absorbance is pretty good (I got the super) but is more like a regular.
My problem lies with the applicator, specifically the plunger. It needs a better gripping system because I had a hard time pushing the tampon in. My fingers would slip and it would just not move. It was very frustrating.
Great that they are organic BUT...
they don't work nearly as well as conventional tampons such as the Tampax brand I used to use. Sorry but it is 100% true. These do not expand and blood gets through around the tampon. I love the organic part but have to wear a panty liner as backup with these or else.
Better than some others.
I'm relatively new to natural feminine care products. I don't particularly care for the applicator as it's very slick and I finally learned to push the tampon out of the applicator about 1/2 inch before insertion and that helped. It did its job and was pretty comfortable. I do like knowing that there aren't toxic ingredients.
I highly recommend these tampons. I have used many different brands of tampons over the years. I have also had many patients ask me for recommendations on tampons; this is the brand I recommend. The are all natural, no scents added. The actual single tampon wrapper color is a light relaxing blue color. The applicators are a white cardboard. The absorption is equivalent to a tampax pearl brand tampon. It makes me feel better knowing I'm not putting bad chemicals into my lady parts.

Major kudos for being non-toxic, but they don't do the job
I really wanted to switch to these after reading how incredibly toxic regular tampons are. I figured there might be a slight difference in the effectiveness, so I wore a panty liner as a backup. Well, sad to say, the difference is not slight. The tampon ever so slightly expands in length, but doesn't seem to expand in width at ALL, thus blood flows out around it with no difficulty whatsoever. I could deal with an occasional slight leak, but my flow isn't even heavy and these do nothing to stop it. Then, to top it off, almost exactly half of the time, they fall out completely when I'm using the restroom, as it did this morning within 2 hours of inserting it. They are also very hard to get out of the applicator. I tried pushing the tampon out of the tip of the applicator very slightly before inserting after reading the reviews of others, but that only helps a tiny bit. I REALLY wish I could support this product, but it just doesn't do the job it's intended to do. I really hope I can find something else that works.
Hard to use
The tampons are really hard to get out of the applicator, and therefore where they belong. I won't buy these again.
uncomfortable but works well
These are slightly uncomfortable compared to the potentially toxic ones on the market however I'm giving them four stars because they absorb well and give me piece of mind.
Piece of Mind
I appreciate the piece of mind knowing these are organic cotton. These are great price and quality.

After reading reviews on Amazon, I went ahead with these because I'm just not comfortable with a menstrual cup. These are awesome!!! They work just like the regular drugstore tampons I'm used to but I feel better about using them. I always wear a pantyliner just to prevent any leaks from staining my underwear and I don't feel like these leak any more than the drugstore tampons did. Comfy, did the trick, and a decent price!
