U By Kotex Click tampons come in a small reclosable cardboard box. The tampons are compact and the box it comes in is too!
The tampons come packaged in three super fun and bright colours and also feature an easy tear opening. The packaging also makes it easy for me to slip my used applicator back into the wrapper for disposal.
The applicator is super cool!!!! It comes in it’s compact form and you have to pull on the plunger until you hear a click. That’s when you know the plunger is properly extended and ready for use. Don’t worry though, you can’t pull too hard.
The applicator looks super cute too. The barrel is slim and stays the same width throughout. The grip has U By Kotex’s cute swirly design on it and is quite small. I can only use two fingers to hold it. The middle part is clear so you can see the string and see the plunger click into place.
U By Kotex Regular Click applicator measures:
Tip diameter: 1.2cm
Applicator length: 7.8cm when compact, 11.4cm when extended to full size
Plunger length: 5.0cm
Though not advertised, the tampon appears to have a veil over the tampon. Veils act as a guard to prevent shedding of the tampon fibre. The bottom of the tampon isn’t covered by the veil and you can easily pick out the fibers with your fingers which might make you think it’s a poorly made tampon. However, once the tampon is inside your body and absorbing period, the tampon holds together very well. Afterall, once inside your body, there isn’t a hand picking at the tampon fibres, so rest assured this tampon isn’t shedding everywhere inside you.
The tampons all feature a very long (it measure 15cm!) pink tampon string. This is really cute but sometimes when I use the washroom, at first glance, the pink makes me think that I’ve started to leak!
U By Kotex Regular Tampon measures:
The regular tampon is meant to absorb 6 to 9 grams of fluid and works best with faster flows.
The tampon expands evenly all around to provide protection in every direction and this is something you’ll notice when you change your tampon. Absorption is also really fast, something I definitely notice during my slower flows. During slower flows, I usually experience leakage but very little leaked when I used this tampon.
These tampons are really compact and convenient to carry. They’re also super cute and I didn’t feel like this was something I wanted to hide. It’s always nice to have something colourful and cute perk up your day when you’re PMSing.
The applicator is super fun and easy to use. My fingers are small so I didnt’ find the grip too small for me but I definitely think some people would prefer a longer grip. The applicator tip is rounded and the sides are smooth and stay the same width throughout the barrel so you barely feel it during insertion.
I went for a run with this tampon in and didn’t experience any leaks. The all around expanding really worked for me to prevent leaks.
U By Kotex Click tampons are compact tampons that extend and click to it’s full size. They come in their signature colorful packaging and the tampon even features a cute pink string. The tampon expands evenly all and absorption is fast to prevent leaks, making it a perfect choice for exercise or sport wear.
Not Recommended for:
-Lighter periods; choose the minimum absorbency necessary for your period
