Great product

5

I have been using this product for the last 4 or 5 years. I used to use Playtex religiously, but found that Kotex was cheaper. After switching to Kotex in hopes of saving money, I found that I absolutely preferred Kotex to Playtex and have not switched back. Kotex are reasonably priced and I find coupons regularly. I never has issues with leaks that cause wardrobe changes. I never have to use this product with a back up pad. This product is all around great - which is nice because it is necessary. I find that I definitely prefer the unscented tampons to the scented. I think the scented tampons are sickeningly sweet smelling and I find that scent to be offensive. This is not specific to Kotex as all scented tampons have the same smell. I recently found a great deal on Tampax Pearl and have lived to regret every single cent that I thought I was saving. The Tampax tampons were a leaky disaster. I will never switch again.

The Most Comfortable Tampon I've Ever Used

5

Over the years I have tried a lot of different tampons and I was convinced the Tampax with the cardboard applicator was the best one in regards to comfort and absorption. When my store was out of them and the only other super plus tampons were the Kotex Security, I tried them out. The plastic applicator was easy to use when inserting and the removal string was firmly stitched to the tampon. The Kotex Security tampons are individually wrapped and have the size printed on them so if you get a box of assorted sizes you will always know which size you are using. The plastic applicator has a nice ridge on the end of it so even if your hands are wet you aren't going to be fumbling with the tampon when you are inserting it. The wrappers are a little on the thin side so trying to slide the applicator back into it can be an issue if you are trying to be discreet when throwing it away in a public bathroom that doesn't have a disposal bin in the stall. These are sold in a couple of different sized boxes; the 18 and 36 count boxes are the ones that I usually get. I can easily go through a 36 count box of the super plus tampons in one month so when I stock up I usually get one of each of the boxes just to be on the safe side. Kotex does make a couple of assorted size boxes that have the regular, plus and super plus tampons which is a great way to go if you only have one or two days of heavy flow but from stop to start I have to use the super plus size.

Offers Excellent Protection!

5

Kotex is my number one go to pad. They are comfortable, and offer excellent protection against leaks. I always tend to buy the maxi pads, just because I worry that I could have a leak. I have never had any type of problem with any Kotex protect, however this is by far my favorite. I also love that there are coupons always available for Kotex, pads I feel are way more expensive then they should be so, however with coupons available it makes this product a must buy!

The most comfortable tampon on the market

5

Kotex tampons are the most comfortable tampon I've ever tried, and I've tried them all.  Easy to insert, and very rarely have accidents with these tampons.  Kotex tampons are soft, and follow the contours of your body so well, you forget you're using a tampon.

Kotex Lightdays are the best!

5

I really like Kotex Lightdays they are really absorbent for pad liners. They are also much better quality than other brands such as equate or carefree that tend to almost fall apart when you peel them off. I am very impressed with the Kotex brand and have been consistently using them for several years. When I tried to buy a less expensive brand I was very unimpressed and disappointed in the choice that I had made. I would definitely recommend Kotex lightdays for a pad liner if you are not already using them or if you want one that is better quality than what you are currently using. The only bad thing about Kotex lightdays is they are a little high in price, but if you buy the biggest box it lasts for quite a long time.

Great for regular days or light period days

5

I really like this product. I usually get it in a regular size, although I think there may be a longer length. It's great for days when your period is too light to wear a pad. It absorbs pretty well, but it cannot absorb too much. It's also good for regular days when you don't have your period, but you plan to have an intense workout. In addition, I've found them helpful for traveling, to use when alternating underwears. For instance, when I go on a beach vacation, I hate having to shower, put on underwear, take it off to put on a bathing suit, and then having to put on a new underwear once I remove my bathing suit. Instead, I'll put on a panty liner for the first half of th day, so that I can reuse the underwear once I'm done using my bathing suit. I know some people are not like me and would rather pack loads of underwear and clothes when traveling, but I like to pack light and these panty liners really help with that.

a brand to be trusted

5

The Kotex brand for " feminine protection" has been around for many, many years and is a brand I have trusted for decades . Even though I no longer need the traditional pads on a monthly basis  , I still keep a supply of Kotex lightdays under my bathroom cabinet.  In the past , I have tried all the Kotex line - the overnight protection ,etc and all do a superb job at keeping you clean and dry and are very absorbent . These lightdays are not bulky or uncomfortable and do a great job for just keeping you feeling clean and fresh . They can be used daily as a panty liner and are even effective if you have an occasional problem with a tiny bit urine loss which can happen  as you get older . Of course, these are not intended for that purpose , but for an occasional " dribble" , they take care of that problem as well . There are always coupons and sales on the Kotex line and it is to be trusted more than any other - they are number one in feminine protection .

Kotes Security Tampons

4

I only recently started using the Kotex Security Super Unscented, Plastic Applicator Tampons. I have used Tampax Tampons for almost forty years and figured that I would always use them. I found the Kotex Security Super Tampons on sale and thought that i would give them a try. I am so glad that I did. I had used these before, many years ago and I didn't really care for them very much. They had really changed and improved these since the last time that I gave them a try. They are priced much better than most brands that are out there. They seem to be on sale a lot and I always ahve a coupon for them. The only thing that I don't like is that the plastic applicator and the wrappers are not flushable. But, that is the only thing that I don't like, so I'll continue to use them and hope that someday they change to cardboard. These are very comfortable to use and work very well, i would highly recommend them to all women, young or old.

Just ok, not the best brand of tampons out there.

I ususally buy these often because I can get them very inexpensively, if not free between coupons and sales.  I have found that these do not provide the best protection against leaks, and that I have to change them a lot more often than necessary.  They just don't tend to absorp as much.  The applicator is actually fairly easy to use, which I like.  I have found that the tampon brand that I prefer most is Playtex Gentle Glide.  Those provide the ultimate leak coverage and are a litte bit more expensive, but they are worth it.  Nothing is worse than being in public and getting that "leaking" feeling, and I tend to get that feeling often when I use these Kotex Security Tampons.  Even the Super and Super Plus sizes don't provide the best of protection.  Sometimes I am changing them out every hour or less, so it just goes to show that the cotton just doesn't absorp as much.  I love that they are always cheap or free though!  I can always donate them!
