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.
I've been using organic tampons for well over a decade. Aside from wanting to reduce my exposure to toxins, I also buy (& grow as I run my own eco farm full time) organic because it is better for the environment. Out of all the tampon brands I've tried over the years these are without a doubt the most comfortable & unless way overfull, they don't leak at all. The tampons themselves sans applicator get 10 stars from me.
What I don't like is all the plastic. This 3 pk comes packaged in a big company logo plastic bag. Then you have the plastic wrapper on the tampons & then the plastic applicator. A lot of companies advertise that their plastic is biodegradable. If you look into this, you will see that this is a bit of a joke. It takes forever for these types of plastics to break down. Most cannot break down in a regular compost pile & need the more intense methods used in industrial dumps. "Biodegradable" plastic is essentially Greenwashing.
You may be saying, then don't use an applicator. What the heck is wrong with you? I'll tell you. I can't properly seat a tampon without an applicator. I sometimes even struggle with an applicator, but without one? Forget it. I can never get it in all of the way. The darn thing ends up playing turtle head. I have Endometriosis. I'm miserable enough. I don't need to be constantly fussing with an improperly inserted tampon. I find shorter, wider tampons such as this to be much more comfortable & better for the shape of my body. But try this digital vs applicator & it's a no go. I've been menstruating for over three decades. If I haven't figured out how to make applicator free work, it's highly unlikely I ever will. Maybe it's my tilted uterus? Maybe it's the Endo. I don't know. But for F sake don't judge me for it.
So that's it then. Awesome, freakn' awesome tampons. I must grudgingly admit that the compact applicators are very easy to insert making the process very comfortable in comparison to cardboard. But plastic. OMG, all that plastic. My Box Shop, please come out with a cardboard applicator version (it doesn't have to be compact).
