I've tried them all by this brand but these have to be my favorite ones. I can be on my job all day & not have to worry about leaking through or worry about having an odor. The super plus are amazing and inexpensive.

I have a history of using Kotek's products for many years, but one thing that frustrates me the most is how each individual tampon opens! You need to tab or something in order to make it easier to open .

I recently had my IUD taken out after a wonderful 5 years, so needless to say, I have become mortal again (haha) You kinda get used to no periods after 5 years without them! I have a horrific heavy, long, long flow. And with so many products out now, with all different names and promises, I came across Kotex Security super plus tampons. And I am forever greatful. This tampon, for us heavy cycles, actually absorbs it. Unlike some that just act as a 'plug.' I had zero leaks. ZERO. And its so comfortable. I almost forgot it was in! I had zero issues doing my regular activities of chasing my two kiddos around. Only product I'll every buy. Period. (Lol!) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Glad to hear our Security Tampons are your go to tampon! Thanks for the wonderful review!

I have been a loyal buyer for years as they seem to absorb the best and are easy to pull out and I would have easily have put up 5 stars. But as of last week, one of the tampons got stuck and I had to literally wrap the string, (that had separated into 2 the cotton had separated where the string met) around my finger to pull it out. I was on vacation. I now have another tampon stuck in me, I can't even find the string. I know you are an amazing line. Would the click it version be a better line? This is the first time its happened with this product and I am not sure if its just this box I bought or If I just need to try the new line you produced. I just don't like that its more expensive.

As my periods became heavier, pads were not ideal. I started to use tampons, but they seemed not to hold long and I would have to change them frequently. I tried lots of products but none of them seemed to work right. I decided to used super plus and the absorbency was better than all products I have tried!

Security Super don't absorb as much, and the applicator barrel is thinner making it harder to insert/plunge. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Did you mean make sure to wear lots of pads because you are going to leak through after 40 min??? These tampons are literally the worse. The expand in length and not width and do nothing to stop the flow from leaking. Must have been designed by a man. If I could get my money back and new underwear I would be a happy girl.

Comment from - 9/8/2016

We're disappointed to learn of your experience as it is not something we typically hear. Our Security Tampons Super Plus are designed to expand naturally to fit your body. As we know, all female bodies are different and what might work well for others, might not be the best fit for you. That being said, if you have not already, we recommend trying our Sleek or Click Super Plus tampons, which you can request a free sample pack here: We hope you will give these a try and that they work much better for your needs. Again, we appreciate you sharing your feedback with us.

I'm a teen, so most of my friends use "U by Kotex" instead of Natural Balance because its not as pretty. But, if using a not-so-pretty tampon is the way I have to go to help the environment and get the GREATEST protection of all time, then so be it. I have been through Tampax Pearl, Playtex Gentel Glide, and so many others. But none of them have opened to ACTUALLY form to my body. I would've never thought I would ever say this in my life, but; I am in love with these incredible tampons! They have the best leak guard and they go in so easily with the satin applicator and they are absolutely in my teen budget and price range! The best deal for the best price! Though, I don't really recommend these for smaller people or people who are just starting with tampons, because they are quite large. But I still love them! :)

When they were discontinued in Canada a few years ago(why??!!), I went to every store in town to buy them all up. I have since tried every tampon in Canada but none held up. Now I have to cross the border to the U.S. and I buy a year's supply at a time. It is worth the trip for me to feel clean and secure every month.

I have always used Kotex super plus tampons and absolutely loved them for the large size and absorbency. Never had to worry about leakage or frequent changing. Was pregnant, had baby, and just had first period in 10 months so turned to trusty Kotex super plus tampons. Much to my disappointment and surprise, I opened wrapper to find a MUCH thinner tampon than what I have used previously...I actually thought it was a manufacturer error and they had mislabeled the box! They may be fine tampons but should NOT be labeled super plus! The first one I used just fell out when using bathroom! So sad I want the old ones back! Frustrated I bought box of 50 as the other 49 will be going in trash! Would give zero stars if that was option.

Hello- Thank you for being a loyal fan of U by Kotex products. We are disappointed to hear about your recent experience with the U by Kotex Security Super Plus Tampons. We have not made any recent changes to this tampon. If these tampons are now too small for you, we would recommend trying our U by Kotex CleanWear Pads. Its 3D Capture Core quickly locks away wetness to help stop leaks. They also have super soft sides for maximum comfort. You can find out more information about them on our website here: Thank you!

PLEASE DO NOT EVER CHANGE A THING ABOUT YOUR PLAYTEX SECURITY SUPER PLUS TAMPONS AND APPLICATOR, EVER! I hate the ones with the skinny little plunger. I adore the lilac colored applicator, its so easy to use. I mistakenly sent my husband to buy me tampons and he got me tampax pearls and I wanted to destroy them, but being on a tight budget I had to use what I had. Now if I have to send him to get me some I send a picture of the box on his cell phone LOL. These do not leak like the other tampons. I feel secure wearing them and dont worry ill be embarrassed. I dont struggle to get the plunger pushed inside like on the skinny little plunger type tampons. I will never use a different brand ever.

I've used this product my entire menstrual life and have never had anything but wonderful things to say about it - but for some reason the "Super" tampons have a straight edge on the packaging, making it difficult to open a product that should be easy to manage - While the "Regular and Super Plus" have perforated edges that are extremely user friendly and open easily with one tear. Just wondering if this was a mistake that made it past quality control and they'd made so many thousands they decided to say "what the heck - they'll figure it out" - It really does seem odd to have "Super" a size that is a very popular product, with the most cumbersome packaging.
