I finally tried LOLA! I was thrilled when the box came in the mail; I’ve never received tampons in the mail before! It came in a small plain brown box, which was discreet and compact enough to fit in my small apartment mailbox.
The packaging is basic and to the point which really aligns with their messaging for no-bullshit ingredients. Something about the packaging exudes cleanliness and simplicity. It might be that the box is white and blue and all the tampons are color coordinated in different shades of blue, too.
Speaking of the different tampons, I have to give serious props to this brand for what they’ve done with the different absorbencies of these tampons. The range is incredible. The light is what I feel like I’ve been searching for forever. Not to get too TMI here, but I find that my flow has so many light days and at the store, I always find boxes that are almost always mostly regulars with some supers. Like, ya girl needs some light tampons for the 4 days after her period where her body just isn’t quite sure what move it wants to make next. I haven’t talked to many other women about this but I assumed I was abnormal for just spotting a million days after my period is over. I’m exaggerating here, but it was so nice to be able to customize this box to my needs.
The one thing I felt with LOLA tampons that I’ve never felt before was like I was rationing all of my tampons. The downside to customizing the box was that I had never done it before so I felt like I was counting how many of each tampon I had to make sure I would have the right amount left.
I did actually unsubscribe after this month because I’m still interested in trying some other brands too. I got some ads for LOLA after I purchased, acting as awareness for their brand. These ads were either acting as a reminder that I made a good choice buying 10% organic cotton tampons, or to get me to subscribe again since I already purchased LOLA. Most likely the latter but don’t worry, LOLA, I’m still a big fan or your brand and will purchase again!
Overall, 10/10 would recommend LOLA. Have you tried LOLA? Which organic cotton tampon should I look into next? I am super interetsed in trying Blume!
