Thats crazy! I moved over to “OB” tampons with no applicatior to skip on the waste all together.

Are they on amazon? I know they carry a lot of tampon goodies!

Omg, do you mean these ones!?  They are the only ones that are even remotely comfortable!  If they’re discontinuing them, I’m going to have to buy a literal truckload.

Uh oh, looks like they’re getting rid of cardboard, all the cardboard applicators are on sale…

@poetryreader80:  Oh.  Then we don’t have lites in Canada.  Good luck in finding them!

OMG. Do NOT tell me I have to use the Pearl ones now. Sonofabitch. These were the only ones that I would use!

Honestly, I didn’t even know they still had cardboard applicators!! You guys prefer the cardboard over plastic?  I think cardboard is super painful to put in.

@KateByDesign:  I’ve used both (forgot I use Kotex ones for a day or so) and I really don’t notice a difference. But all the reviews for the new one mention it’s harder to apply (shorter applicator/string), leaks, and is more uncomfortable. Awesome.

@KateByDesign:  I agree!  For a while my regular brand stopped making slimfits so I tried the tampax.  Ugh!!!  I ended up going with a non-slimfit plastic one until I could get my slimfits again.

  Like Mrs.Argentina:  I have been an OB fan for over 35 Years… no interest in any other product since I’ve tried this one… and in this day and age it is environmentally friendly as well.  Would never think of using anything else.
