      I love Playtex Gentle Glide tampons. They have always provided me with great coverage. I have tried Tampax pearl before and hated it. Gentle Glide provides a much better coverage for me and they are comfortable too!

        Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 40 ea, 1 pack:

        They do not open up inside, and just stay the same shape all the time which causes leaking. My period is not heavy, but during the first two days I had to use extra protection as a daily pad. Tampax Pearl is the best brand I have ever used, they have a special leakage protection, and they actually expand inside you, which provides better protection. As far as comfort, they are all the same, no matter what tampon brand you use, you are not supposed to feel them.

        Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 40 ea, 1 pack:

        I tried these b/c the store was out of my regular brand. They were ok. I found they didn't expand inside me like they said they would, just stayed the same shape, which meant I wasn't getting as much protection. I went through them faster then I did the same size tampon of the Tampax pearls. So, not bad, but I'm not impressed either. Tampax works better for me.

          Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons, Unscented, Regular, 40 ea, 1 pack:

          I bought these because they were on sale and I was pleasantly surprised by how well they worked, they're so comfortable that I don't even feel them. They were so easy to insert and pull out. Only con is that, like most brands, these contain rayon. I'm hoping playtex will come out with a line of organic tampons

            These tampons are the best. I read a one star review and absolutely disagree with it. Unless your period is abnormally heavy, these are great.

              The applicator is easy to use and comfortable. It is not painful even it is not fully absorbed. In heavy days there might be slight leakage.

                Love gentle glides. I tried the Tampax cardboard & pearls, but they can't compare to these. They do just glide right in, and feel so comfortable; I can't even feel em. They give me great protection, no leakage: everything a tampon should be. Wonder-pons!

                    Not that impressed with this product. Not as absorbent as I had hoped. Removal is uncomfortable because of the way it expands wide.
