Hard to insert
I was glad to see a brand of tampons without applicators so I decided to get one of these. In the past, I have used Playtex Gentle Glide with applicators and o.b. tampons without applicators. Playtex is a bit expensive (8 tampons for 130 or something) and I wasn't used to the applicator at first, but it does glide in smoothly. O.b. is no longer sold here, so I grabbed a box when I went to Hong Kong. That one also goes in smoothly. So I was disappointed when the Ladouce wouldn't go in. I eventually gave up because it hurt trying to insert it. I threw that first one away. I tried again the next month, but sadly, I still had trouble putting it in. Maybe I should have bought the minis. I managed it though, and I have to say that I didn't get any leaks after 5 hours. To sum it up, I like that this brand is made of organic cotton and has no applicator, but this might not be good for beginners because it's hard to insert.
