To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These work as I expected. I like that I get both sizes. These do not "flower" when aborbing like other products, but I prefer that as it is more comfortable for me. They are still absorbent and I had zero leaks. They also do not have a braided end. The string is a little thin but none have broken upon removal. I am a little concerned that each tampon is wrapped in plastic and the applicator is also plastic. I am just hoping it is made out of plant material as stated and will biodegrade. They do stick a bit in the applicator upon insertion and you will learn that this is when kegels come in handy. ;) This again is not a deal breaker for me as you quickly learn how to solve that. Other than that, it is a tampon...it has a pretty basic function, and this brand does it well enough for me to purchase again.
I have had problems with irritation with other hygiene products in the past. I first tried the Rael liners and they were so nice, I decided to try these tampons and I LOVE THEM!! I will only be purchasing Rael hygiene products from now on.
