This review is solely based on the applicator since I was never able to get it in to test out absorption. The “trigger” of the applicator was compromised to make a compact tampon. Because of how much shorter it is, releasing the tampon became a struggle. Even when pushed all the way up, the tampon never released, thus leading to multiple failed attempts. Sorely (pun intended) disappointed that these didn’t work out.
I don't know how anyone gets these in with the short applicator. A "regular" tampon has an applicator that is a couple inches long, to help push the tampon in further than your hand (very essential to me, otherwise I'd just be getting the OBs with no applicator at all). I bought these Cora tampons hoping to be able to switch to something organic but went through several trying to insert, and with the applicator being only about half an inch, they not only didn't go in far enough, but they actually didn't release from the applicator -I'd pull the applicator back out and the tampon would come right with it. And then into the trash. So, save the planet I guess but I'm going back to my TSS-inducing chemical laden friends that I know work every time.

I finally broke out of my shell & decided to try a different tampon brand. I used all 16ct regular so I could say I’ve used them all/tried them. Leaking every time. COMPACT IS NOT THE WAY TO GO. It did not absorb anything. I was uber disappointed with this product. I heard many great things about this. The other brand I used, I never had to wear a small liner but with this brand I ruined multiple pairs of underwear...EVEN WITH A SMALL LINER. Doesn’t even last 4-6 hours. My periods are not heavy at all, so this was a definite shock. 100% cotton, eco friendly, blah blah blah sounded great because there are definitely many additives in tampons but I’ll stick to the additives in my regular tampons if it’s saving me ruining underwear & actually works. Don’t waste your money.
No absorbency, you will leak through unless you’re a light tampon kind of person

I love that target and other big stores are finally starting to carry a myriad of organic period products. L brand is the definite worst- they fall apart inside you and when pulling them out and it is relatively scary. I want to love these- love organic tampons but still with the ease of the plastic applicator. I love that they’re compact and cute! However, they have little to no absorbency. I have leaked through regular and super absorbency, even when having a lighter flow at the end of my period. Cora tampons don’t seem to absorb any blood- they don’t get bigger or anything after use and subsequent removal, unlike a typical tampon. Also, the worst part is that even when not completely full of blood (like white portions of the cotton completely visible), these leak HORRIBLY! It makes no sense and has been making my period the worst period ever and extremely embarrassing and inconvenient. I have to use a back up method, like a pad (pantiliners don’t work in this case because the leakage is so much) or Thinx. I bought 2 boxes, so I guess I’ll finish using them, but Cora has made my period very difficult to manage (leaking through everything, even when the tampon isn’t close to full) and clothes/panties are definitely ruined. :( I want to love them, but they have basically no absorbency and aren’t worth it at all. I regret buying them!
Thank you for the feedback. The liners definitely shouldn't have fallen apart when you removed them. It sounds like you may have received a defective package. If you haven’t already, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll happily send out a replacement.
I had been looking for a cotton tampon to replace pads during my heavy days (which aren't all that heavy) and was excited to try these. To say they were disappointing would be an understatement. They were difficult to insert properly with the applicator, and the absorption was terrible. I always had leaks, even when changing frequently, because the tampon would absorb hardly anything. I also was not so excited that an eco tampon had plastic applicators and protective packaging, but it's pretty rare to find anything using cardboard/paper.
