    I have always preferred applicator less packaging and this does the trick with less waste!
  • BETH P (WINNIPEG, MB) says:

    Small to carry, easy to use and very absorbent. OB is a go to brand for me and has been for over 20 years.
  • JENNIFER G (CALGARY, AB) says:
    I absolutely love how there is less waste with this product, but it just felt very uncomfortable and really unhygienic when using it especially while in a public bathroom.
  • LEANNE G (BATTLEFORD, SK) says:
    Great for convenience and being discrete. I like that there is little waste that goes along with these.

  • CAITLIN G (MAPLE RIDGE , BC) says:
    Comfortable and little waste, win win!
  • TRACY D (GRANDE PRAIRIE , AB) says:
    Hard to use
  • JULIE D (DRUMHELLER, AB) says:
    I was very excited to try this product as I really liked how compact and discreet it was. I also appreciated how there would be less waste as well. Unfortunately, the cons outweighed the pros! After several different attempts I found the application to be more difficult than I thought it would be. It felt very uncomfortable and no matter what I tried I could not seen to alleviate the discomfort. I wish I could say I enjoyed the product, but unfortunately I did not and most definitely will not recommend it.
  • ROMELYN A (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    I had a few accidents (leakage). So I had to change frequently to prevent it from happening again.

    Lots if women i know like them, they just don't work for me
  • SIOBHAN V (AIRDRIE, AB) says:
    There is no applicator to put this tampon in. To shove it in with your finger is so unsanitary. It also just fell out.
  • CRYSTAL W (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    I prefer with applicator
  • TAMMI F (PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, MB) says:
    Took a few tries getting right, simple packaging, discreetly pack it in a pocket,
  • GREER C (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    I really liked the variety in one package, less waste as they are applicator free.
  • COURTNEY S (SPRUCE GROVE, AB) says:
    As an avid cup user, I like using OB as back up if I don’t have accessibility to running water. They’re smaller than a typical tampon, and I don’t find they hurt to remove like other tampons, and they’re also shorter, making them more comfortable
  • ANGELA W (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    Compact and convenient
  • LAURA M (STONY MOUNTAIN, MB) says:
    I don’t care for tampons without an application just a personal preference. Will be donating to a women’s shelter.
  • LEANNA K (TELKWA , BC) says:
    I don't use tampons and do not know why you insist on sending me them every time
  • PAMELA G (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    I’m not a fan of tampons without an applicator
  • KRISTINA K (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    I really like that they don't have a plastic. I would choose these over other brands since they have no plastic applicator and they are small and discrete
  • MARIAN J (ST. ALBERT, AB) says:
    Prefer an applicator
  • KRISTA K (MATLOCK, MB) says:
    I still don’t like the fact when I’m out and have to use it my fingers are a mess with blood. It’s just gross for me.
  • DALLAS S (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    Love how comfortable these were. My teen used them as well and found them easy to use and comfortable!
  • MARY ANN S (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    This product is good but I prefer the pad.
  • DARYLL D (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    it does the job
  • LARYSA S (WEST ST PAUL, MB) says:
    Tried and true!! Love it!
  • ANDREA G (EDMONTON, AB) says:
    I didn’t find the size worked for me after having two kids in the past three years. I definitely leaked unfortunately.
  • DANIELLE M (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    I’m much more comfortable with a different brand/style of tampon. I appreciate the effort in minimizing single use, discarded plastic applicators but it’s just not for me.
  • ALICIA F (WINNIPEG, MB) says:
    I like how it doesn’t have any plastic ! Better for the environment
  • PATRICIA R (BEAUMONT , AB) says:
    I unfortunately like the tampons with the applicators. I just didn’t care to have no applicator with my tampon
