    Premium Protection

    It's true when they say that the best gifts come in small packages! Discrete and convenient I like o.b. tampons because they work! I love that there is no applicator! And the compact cases to store them in make them easy to share with friends, store in your gym bag, at the office, and on the go! I feel confident knowing I won't have any leakage problems when I use o.b. tampons! It's a brand I know and trust!

    Less Earth-killing waste

    Plastic applicators just end up in the landfill, never to break down. Thankfully, these don't have those. OB tampons are much easier to stick in my pocket or bra when I'm on the go and, unlike other reviewers, I've never had problems with absorbency. This is maybe because I've don't often wear these tampons on my heaviest days, or else I tend to insert them higher up than others. If anyone is squeamish about inserting tampons with no applicator, well... I'll just say that women need to be more comfortable with their own bodies or else just wear a pad.

    Discreet & Handy, but not for everyone.

    First off, this is a tampon ONLY. No applicator at all, you literally use your finger. If this grosses you out, or you are going to be somewhere that you cant wash your hands - don't use these! For me, these are handy to keep in my purse or pocket ...or in my bra! You can hide these and use them without anyone noticing! There is no trash to get rid of, either.

    Discreet and work well

    They are discreet and compact, easy to hide. I found them to be comfortable and provide great coverage. I rarely felt them and never had to worry about leaks. The insertion process wasn't all that different then I was use to, though they can be a bit more messier than tampons with an applicator. But extra wiping and/or carrying hand wipes will help with that. All in all I liked them. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

    Very difficult to insert. Sort of scratchy/uncomfortable. Probably designed for your lighter days towards the end of the cycle, but even then I find them sort of useless...

    Small, Waste Free Tampon

    I have really grown to enjoy o.b. tampons because they are so small and easy to carry around in your pocket, purse, or car. They also generate very little waste compared to other tampons because of the thin wrapper and no applicator. It does take time to learn how to quickly and comfortably insert the tampons and they also seem to be slightly less absorbent because of their small size. All in all though, I like o.b.s more and more the longer I use them because of their size, ease of use, and environmental friendliness.

    I received these tampons as a free sample. I am not a fan of these tampons.. They are very uncomfortable , and they don't absorb anything ! I do like they they are very small and discreet so you can put them in your pockets, but to me they are not worth purchasing.

    Just what you need

    I like these - I just take my finger and slide it into place - I can't stand cardboard applicators that cut up my insides while inserting and the junky plastic ones. Perfect

    No applicator

    These tampons have no applicator and I was confused when I first used them. I'm pretty sure I put it in wrong because of the lack of applicator and felt uncomfortable to the point where I had to take it out and try again. I'll be sticking to another brand of tampons

    Good and bad features

    These tampons have definite pros and cons. Pros: They are very tiny which makes them perfect for your purse. You don't have to worry about uncomfortable application because there is no applicator. Cons: Because there is no applicator, they can be a little messier to insert (not that big of a deal) but if you don't insert them just right, they don't absorb very well, and I even had one start to come out. Ultimately, I gladly keep these in my purse for emergencies, but this isn't my regular go-to tampon.

    O.b. Pro comfort....not for me...

    I received these free to try for my honest opinion. I gave these many tries throughout 2 periods and did not like them. They constantly felt there I was always aware of them . The material used to make the tampon was different then my current one I do not think I'd like it even if it had an applicator

    Discreet and comfortable!

    These are probably my favorite tampons that I've used. There is NO applicator, which makes for a convenient on-the-go size and is environmentally friendly. People have asked if it gets messy, but I have to say that surprisingly, it doesn't. They have a different feel but there is no mess to speak of.
