The concept of mixing different strength protection in one package is brilliant. The Tampax Pearl Multipax is an idea whose time has come. Not only do you not have to buy several boxes of different absorbencies for your entire cycle, but the compact size takes this product to a whole new convenience level. Each individually wrapped tampon comes with a very easy to use applicator. It is well designed for ease of use and being able to fit your protection in even the smallest evening bag is every girls dream. Well maybe not every girl's dream, but this one thinks it is dreamy.

My only complaint comes from the fact that this product is not at all green or carbon friendly made me give it 4 not 5 stars. The individual plastic wrappings, the plastic applicator and the bleached cotton tampons all add to our carbon footprint. With that said, this is a product that I heartily endorse.

Saw an ad on an online blog for a free package of sample of tampax products and coupons, so I decided to request it because I am always up for trying out new products. Also, I have been searching around for a good tampon that I can get at a good value because the store brand ones I have tried so far were not cutting it for me. It happened that the compak pearl plastic tampon was one of the items I received in the sample package, so I tried it out. There are so many bad features to this product, I don't even know where to begin. I'll just state the two main issues I have with it. The plastic applicator is virtually useless, as it pushes out only 2-3 cm. I ended up having to use my fingers to insert the tampon, which basically makes the applicator pointless. I might as well be using something more compact like an o.b. tampon (I really don't like o.b tampons though). 2) the tampon is soooo thin that it hardly provides any kind of leakage protection. I would say it might just be able to provide some sort of leakage protection on a very very light day for me (that is, like the last two days of my period). I would not recommend this to anybody.

Tampax Pearl compak good once you get the hang of it!

By 

from Vancouver WA

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

I sent my husband to the store to buy tampons one time and he came home with these. He pretty much just grabbed the first box he saw and hightailed it out of the store. I was pretty excited because I had never tried them due to cost. They are short and concealable and very trendy (if a tampon can be trendy) and they travel well. That said I had the hardest time figuring out how to make them work! I wasted about three of them before I gave up and put a pad on. The next day I gave it another shot. The "plunger" is very short which is what makes it compact. It wasn't long enough to get the tampon in far enough to stay. I basically had to insert it myself and decided these things were a waste of time and money. They sat in the bathroom cupboard for another month before I tried them again. I took the time to read the instructions just in case I was missing something. What a concept! You pull the plunger out until it clicks then you insert the tampon. Then you push the plunger in like on a normal tampon. It works like a charm. I didn't have any leaking issues and they worked well for me but I'm not sure I will buy them again as they are expensive and you shouldn't have to read instructions to know how to insert a tampon.

Awesome product! I will forever buy!

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

I have always been a pad girl until about a year or two ago when i decided to try tampons. I used Tampax pearl and feel in love! So easy to insert and VERRRRRRRRRRRRY comfortable to use. The braided string and color change material on the end makes it easy to avoid accidents. I saw that tampax earl has come out with the compact and I had to snag them. These tampons work wonders no matter what kind if flow you are having and you don't have to work about accidents. I oredered these on Monday and it got here the very next day! Talk about fast shipping! I will continue to buy these brands of tampons and I don't plan on changing ever! Tampax Pearl tampons are the most comfortable and easy to use tampons out there. Not to mention the reliable protection. I highly recommend this product.

Best quality!

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

My husband does not believe that one Tampon can be "better" than the others. But, oh, believe me, it can. These tampons are the greatest- comfortable, not leaking, easy to come by. Other brands have failed me and I won't buy them again! These are my go-to.

These are really the only tampons I will use! They go in so easy and they are the only ones I really trust! I where a liner when I where my tampons, but I never have licks with theses ones. I feel the protection in them and I trust that it's safe. I really dislike cardboard applicators; it’s not clean to me, or safe to me. When it comes to my period, my main worry is knowing that I have full protection, and that I feel clean. With Tampax Compak Pearl Multipax Absorbancy Plastic Tampons I have all of that, and more!!!! They are very Easy to use, small for my purse, clean, and comfortable! Best way to go and the smart way to go as well. No negative about this product and the price isn’t to bad ether!!!!!!! I would never go back to my old tampon, because this is the best choice for me. They are also always offering a free sample of these on their website!!! With great coupons also!!!! Saving their users money!!!

Tampax Compak pearl Plastic Tampons 40 each make you feel best

By 

from Lake City, FL

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

I just decided to purchase this exact same brand of Tampons yesterday because they were out of my other brand of Tampax but was not using using Pearl kind. I love this pearl plastic tampon. I was using the cardboard kind and it stinks compared to this. This tampon keeps you feeling clean and fresh when in use. It eliminates the order smell and provides a fresh clean scent. It is much more comfortable than the cardboard tampons and far by more easier to use. It is priced as average, but let me tell you it would be well worth buying. I will never switch from this brand. I am in love and won't go back to cardboard. It is small in size so you can hide it when going to the bathroom in public or at family & friends home. You can be very discreate about using it. No one would ever know. It is so small that you can very easily wrap it toliet paper when discarding. I even use less toliet paper to wrap the tampon in.

Tampax Compak Pearl is the way to go

By 

from Neptune, NJ

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

Have 3 women in the house who use tampons and these by far are the most comfortable and the preferred to use in our household. The carboard applicators we have used in the past have always been the most convenient for flushable reasons but these are the most convenient and natural to use. The day that my daughter got her period for the first time she was going to a party that was a swim party - I did not hesistate to give her a quick training on how to use these. We love that we can get different sizes in one pack so that we can all share and the price is right for our budget conscious family. The sizes of the tampons are very inconspicuous when you are self conscious about carrying to the bathroom. When they say these are like pearls this is a very accurate descritption. We are hoping to use these tampons for years to come within our family and I will highly reccommend them to other family members as well as friends if someone were to ask me for my opinion of a tampon to use.

Multipax is a brilliant idea - what you need/when you need.

By 

from Wilmington, DE

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

Tampax Compak Pearl Multipax Absorbancy Plastic Tampons was a very clever idea.  It comes in three different absorbancies: Light, Regular, and Heavy.  Long gone are the days of one size fits all. It is very comforting to know that the particular product you select is set to accomodate your particular situation. 

When you initially select heavy, you have the confidence in knowing that you are protected from any embarrassing overflow, because you are not restricted to the frequency of changes that normally would occur with the Regular "one size" pack.  Equally as comforting, you will not feel overcrowded during moderate days, because you have the ability to select the Regular.  As well, Light is available to you when you barely have the need.

Essentially, one purchase will take care of all your needs for the month.  It is economical because you do not need to buy several boxes to make the same accomodations.  Not to mention...it is a space saver in your closet!

Tampax Compak Pearl puts the smack down on Mother Nature!

By 

from Castle Rock, CO

Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons:

What female enjoys that time of the month?  Unless she has absolutely no signs or symptoms from her "monthly gift", which is possible with pregnancy, injury, and menopause, the average woman will do anything to ease the discomfort of this fabulous part of her life.  Sometimes, it is easy to predict the arrival, other times it is a complete surprise.  It is nice to have a quick solution, like the Tampax Compak Pearl, to fit in your pocket. 

I think back on the other options that have been introduced to the market and I have to laugh at what we women have put up with over the years.  From pads in the shape of diapers to cardboard applicators, what were feminine product companies thinking?  Ridiculous!  We deserve better than that, ladies!

Hooray for Tampax!  A brand that is designed for females and their feminine needs.  The Compak Pearl applicator is simple, tiny, and promotes ease of use.  The best part is, these tampons actually do what they are supposed to do, stop leaking.  The box includes different absorbancy sizes for ally types of flow.  The commercials are fun to watch too!  Who knew someone could make your period sound fun and enjoyable?
