"These obviously don't absorb as much as the super version, but they are great for when I'm nearing the end or have just started. What I love (about both these and the super ones) is that they are so compact! I can easily stick one in my pocket (and I never carry things in my pockets) or in my purse. If I did through my purse, there's no obnoxious big package that other tampons come in.
There's a learning curve with these- especially when using public restroom stalls- but I think it's worth it for the small size!"
"I am very sensitive to chemicals and dyes and parfumes and they should NOT be in feminine products. These are applicator free but I don't mind cause it's less waste going into landfills. Good for you...good for the planet."
"I've tried most of the others and find that the Natracare ones absorb the best. They're not as absorbent as ob and who knows how much harm bleached cotton really does, but for now, I've decided it's worth using the natural ones and I'm quite happy with these. Vitacost has the best price I've found."
"Natracare has been rated as being a top organic brand for tampons, and I like knowing they're safe to use, without chlorine or other contaminants. They do the job as well as any other top non-organic brands, and with less waste (no applicator) for the environment, even better. I have repeatedly purchased this product from Vitacost."
"I was a regular user of o.b. tampons back in the day, before they started using that horrific silky lining. Well ladies, regular tampons are made with synthetic materials that can leach chemicals in to your body. Even if you buy ones that are pure cotton, (if it's not organic) then you are basically shoving bleach up there. These are amazing, and work like the old original o.b. without any chemicals. I have been using these for over 3 years now and will never change!"
"I would never use another kind of tampon again. I used to have such pain and cramping when on my period. After switching to a chlorine-free tampon I have never had another pain. Vitacost has the absolute best price anywhere!"
"There are so many things I love about these. They are tiny and can fit anywhere undetected. I can keep an entire box of them in my makeup bag at work. I love the minimal packaging. They work wonderfully, and I love that they are organic and do not contain all the chemicals of the other mainstream brands. I do miss an applicator, though. I will definitely switch over to the applicator ones in the future. I heartily recommend these!"
