    I'm confused by some of the bad ratings. I was trying different kinds after seeing the TV advertisements (ex: Playtex Sport, Tampax Pearl - the non-compak version, etc.) but was dissatisfied. I finally came across these and gave them a shot and am very happy. The compact size makes them very easy to carry with you discretely, I think they are very easy to use, find them comfortable to wear, and they work. I can see why one reviewer mentioned the bright green packaging, but it does help to distinguish between the other absorbency levels that you can buy separately or in the combo pack. They are not long by any means - much shorter than others I've tried - but I agree that they are thinner than others that are out there. This has not been an issue for me, it's part of what I like about them. I found something that works for my body.

    I only use Tampax Pearl and tried the Compak version because it seemed like a space-saving option. Although I like the convenience of the small packaging, the design of the tampon does really suffer. The applicator is cheap, unsturdy and uncomfortable. The tampon itself is longer but skinnier which doesn't absorb as much and causes more leaks. And since you can't discard using the wrapper, you end up wasting paper anyway. I'm sticking with the full-size Pearl.

      Comments about Tampax Pearl Compak Tampons with Pearl Plastic Applicator, Unscented, Super, 40 ea, 1 pack:

      I have to admit I kept putting off buying these compak tampons because of some of the reviews. I've been using the regular Pearl for awhile now and am very used to that applicator. I kept thinking of what a pain it was everytime I went out trying to hold them in my pocket or on me. I finally purchased these compak and I am thrilled I did. Yes, the applicator is different but I had no trouble at all on my first try. They are so small and I was able to fit three in my pocket. If you are already using the Pearl with the regular applicator, there is no reason not to use these. You can easily stick them anywhere and they work just the same.

        Great, simple idea for an applicator that can be compact enough to hide in your purse or palm of your hand. Must be careful not to pinch your flesh when depressing "plunger" portion of the applicator, as it is not as snug in the applicator as it is in Tampax Pearl regular tampons or even the cardboard type applicators.

            I have used the regular Tampax Pearl Tampons with Plastic Applicator for a long time but this "compak" is impossible to insert. This value pack simply has no value.

              I really like these tampons. I've tried o.b., Playtex Sport, Playtex Gentle Glide, and Tampax Pearl, and these are the only ones I'll stick with. They're comfortable, come in cute colors, and are small enough that they'll fit in my pocket. Thank you, Tampax!

                  Ugh, I HATE these things. Tampax must be the most uncomfortable tampon made. They rely on their name and don't feel a need to improve the product. A plastic application isn't enought to save the LONG, THIN, non-shape-conforming tampon. Every other brand has a better shape. I'll stick to Playtex myself. Thanks.

                  The perfect compact size, applicator easy to use, super protection. My only complaint is that the string is quite short making removal a bit of a "search."
