o.b. Pro Comfort Silk Touch Tampons Review

o.b. Pro Comfort Tampons

Try o.b.® PRO COMFORT® Regular tampons with Fluid-Lock® grooves for locked-in leak protection. The only one with SilkTouch™ cover for ultimate comfort and protection.
Absorbency
When period is absorbed, the tampon expands evenly in all directions even during a slow flow (which usually doesn’t happen for me). You can feel the expansion when you remove the tampon. It just feels like a tight custom fit!

The SilkTouch cover doesn’t affect the absorbency. The tampons also have Fluid-Lock grooves which are the slanted grooves you see in the pictures. They’re meant to guide your period to the core and away from the sides for to lock your period in the centre.

Comfort
If you had trouble with the original, you might want to give this one a try. The first time I tried the original o.b. tampon I had a really hard time inserting it and I wasted 3 or 4 before I successfully got one in. The o.b. original tampon felt like it was creating too much friction to glide in smoothly and painlessly. With the SilkTouch smooth cover, it glided in effortlessly, no pain! The tampon is super slim too so you barely feel it.

The SilkTouch cover is a very thin silk like veil that covers the outside of the tampon. You’ll barely notice it as it looks just like the original but it really makes the insertion process much easier!

Packaging
Many women love the o.b. tampons because the packaging is so minimal. It is small and discreet AND it’s super quiet too! No loud crinkly wrappers!

It’s small size makes it easy to just throw a couple in your bag or even the whole box! It’s super easy to hide in your hand too so you don’t have to bring your whole bag or purse into the washroom with you.

o.b. Tampons To Go Pack Review

ob To Go Tampons

  • Fluid-Lock grooves to channel fluid into the tampon core, for reliable leak lock protection
  • Expands width-wise to fit your body perfectly for custom fit protection
  • Compact size makes it easy to insert
  • Small and made to fit almost anywhere, keep it in your pocket or even in the palm of your hand
Absorbency
O.b. tampons have Fluid-Lock grooves which are the slanted grooves you see in the pictures. They’re meant to guide your period to the core and away from the sides for to lock your period in the center.

The regular tampon is meant to absorb 6 to 9 grams of fluid, and super is meant to absorb 9 to 12 grams of fluid. Both work extremely well with both slow and fast flows which is really impressive! Usually I leak during slow flows even when my tampon isn’t near full saturation.

When period is absorbed, the tampon expands evenly in all directions for leak proof wear. You can feel that the tampon expanded when you remove the tampon. It just feels like it expanded to custom fit for your body’s shape.

Comfort
My first time successfully inserting an o.b. tampon took a couple of tries and I’m not gonna lie.. it hurt! The first inch after the first two centimeters hurt the most! I think it was because I was too dry but after that inch, I didn’t feel anything and I just pushed it up. You can also use your period as lubricant to help with insertion.

O.b. also makes PRO COMFORT tampons with a silky smooth cover for easier insertion. I’ve tried those before too and they definitely make the insertion process more comfortable.

When I removed the tampon, I could really feel that this tampon had expanded. It felt bigger when I pulled it out and I could tell it really expanded to fit my shape. Even on a slow flow, I could tell the tampon absorbed and expanded evenly in all directions. I didn’t experience any leaks.

I’ve actually never seen a tampon absorb so evenly throughout on a slow flow so the Fluid-Lock grooves must really work!

Recommend for: Regular flow, Heavy flow
Not recommend for: Lighter flows, always use the lowest absorbency needed for your flow

Packaging
O.b. To Go Pack tampons come in two small cardboard boxes and the tampons are sealed with an easy to open tab. It’s small size makes it easy to just throw a couple in your bag or even the whole box! It’s super easy to hide in your hand too so you don’t have to bring your whole bag or purse into the washroom with you.

What I love about the minimal packaging is that it’s so small and discreet AND it’s super quiet too. No loud crinkly wrappers!

The tampons don’t have an applicator so the whole thing only measures 4.4cm for the regular and 4.9cm for the super.

Maxim Organic Tampons Super Plus Absorbency Review

Maxim tampons
For the really environmentally conscious, skip the applicator and try this non applicator version. All the things you like about our organic tampons: absorbent, hypoallergenic, chlorine/dioxin free, synthetic free and fragrance free, but LESS WASTE than its applicator counterpart! So get down with your green self and try out these eco-friendly tampons!

  • Made with 100% Certified Organic Cotton: What looks like cotton in other tampons is not always 100% Cotton. It is usually a blend of Wood Pulp and Synthetics, like Rayon and Viscose. Cotton is a more naturally breathable fiber that’s better for your Body, Earth and Health!
  • Certified by the Ethical and Environmental Certification Institute (ICEA): These cotton tampons are organic certified, which means Maxim Hygiene has been approved by strict inspection agencies for using safe, non-toxic methods and materials that protect the environment and our health.
  • Chlorine Free: Chlorine Free Tampons means we don’t use chlorine bleaching to whiten and disinfect the raw materials used to make Maxim tampons. This makes these organic tampons dioxin free, keeping away known carcinogens from our most intimate body parts.
  • Hypoallergenic: These hypoallergenic tampons are irritation free because of the breathable qualities of 100% cotton. That means no more itching, even for those with sensitive skin.
  • Synthetic Free and Wood Pulp Free: For a Softer, Irritation Free, Plastic-less feel and Real Breathable Cotton Experience
  • Biodegradable: These biodegradable tampons decompose easily for less waste.
  • Fragrance Free: All of our organic tampons are fragrance free to help prevent the risk of irritation.
Absorbency
The tampon expands all around (except length wise) as it absorbs to fit my shape.

Like most cotton tampons, absorption is a bit slower and uneven than the rayon ones. Sometimes I leaked before it was fully saturated so you need to wear these with a pantiliner.

Comfort
Personally, I don’t prefer tampons without the applicator because I find tampon itself creates too much friction for a smooth insertion. But maybe I just haven’t gotten the insertion down yet! Anyways, the tip is rounded for what should be a comfortable insertion.

Recommend for: Heavy flow
Not recommended for: Lighter flows, always wear the lightest absorption tampon needed for your period

Packaging
I love the packaging. The cardboard box is so compact and small. The plastic tampon wrapping is even made of biodegradable cellophane paper making the entire contents and packaging of this product 100% biodegradable. The box is also easy to open and has a reclosable flap.

The box measures only 14.8cm by 5cm by 3cm
