I've tried every brand of tampons you can imagine & some I'm sure you couldn't, bur I always come back to my precious Gentle Glides! Simply put, both the applicators and the tampons themselves are the most comfortable on the market, though your own "Sports" style tampons come in a very close second!

Super, super plus, ultra? If you're offering so many choices for the heavy-flow women, why not the rest of us? There are women out there who need lighter absorbancy tampons. There are none on the market now that you've discontinued your Slenders and Slender Lites. Those were the only tampons I ever used and I loved them, but now they're gone. Thanks a lot! I don't want to be stuck wearing pads. PLEASE bring back the slenders!!!!

Horrible Wrapper

By Sheena

from Minnesota, United States

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

The plastic wrapper doesn't stay closed. I had tampons in my purse and over half of them opened up/spilled out. The plastic seal is done so poorly it opens up all the way. The actual tampon is fine, the issue is the wrapper.

LIGHT tampons needed

By Mississauga Sweetness

from Mississauga, ON, Canada

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

I am not sure why LIGHT tampons were not promoted or why they were never sold separately... but it seems ridiculous they were discontinued. One who is entering my later years, I am one who rarely uses Super tampons and therefore rely on Regular and Light sized ones. Party-liners are not only inconvenient and don't leave you as feeling fresh as the LIGHT liners you used to sell. I came on the site today hoping to buy them, as I have noticed them off the store shelves of several stores. No such luck. Then I noticed all the other reviews who are also asking for Light tampons back. PLEASE reconsider putting them back in the stores as there is nothing else like it in the market, and there IS a need for them. Regular tampons can be TOO drying on your light days.

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

I literally cannot say enough about how great this product is. No other product compares even remotely. I would promote this brand until my death. I sometimes forget i even have it in, it is that comfortable. Wish I could thank this company a million times over

Gentle glide S+

By Beth26

from New Orleans, LA, United States

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

I bought this product yesterday because I have a very heavy flow and usually need to use pads at this point in my period. These tampons don't really seem to absorb fast enough as blood made it around the top layer and into my underwear.. I didn't feel very safe wearing them.

My favorite

By Kd86

from San Jose, CA, United States

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

These were the first tampons that I succeeded in using, I tried every brand until the sport. I was 23 when I finally decided to try tampons. Once I tried these, it made having my period so much more comfortable. I loved when they had the lite tampons too (though only one store around me carried them) cuz they were the best at the end of my cycle, when I'm super lite. I had to switch to another brand that I hate since they seem to be the only ones who still make lite tampons. I recommend the sport tampons to anyone trying tampons for the first time. Please make the lite only box of tampons again, many women need this absorbency.

Please bring the light tampons back. Why were they discontinued in the first place? They're great for light flow days

Loved the slender fit & lights

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

Bring back the slender fit or light tampons. These were the only ones that did not make me cramp. I have been having to buy your competitors product, but it is not as good!!!

First tampons I ever used.

By LG_Supervisor

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Playtex Gentle Glide Tampon - 500 per carton:

I remember that I started using Playtex Gentle Glide Tampons, I was 13-14 years old, when I first started getting my period & Playtex Gentle Glide are still my "go-to" brand. Other brands may have "better grips &/or snazzier applicators (I.E. "Click type"), but no other brand matches the comfort level of Gentle Glide. Once the tampon is seated correctly, you don't even know that it's there. Such a wonderful "feeling" not feeling anything.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
