LOLA is a monthly subscription service that delivers a tailor-made bundle of cotton tampons to your door. Each box contains 18 cotton tampons with plastic applicators. You may order either one or two boxes per month. Each box can contain a mix of tampons of varying absorbencies–you get to specify exactly what you’d like to receive! I chose one box containing 0 light, 9 regular and 9 super tampons.
I appreciated all of the information they readily share with consumers.My LOLA Tampons arrived in a discreet outer box. Inside, I found an attractive LOLA box with a welcome card.
I thought the blue and white contrasting LOLA packaging was soothing and beautiful.
The welcome card was the same size as a business card–perfect for putting in your wallet! I was excited to try these natural, chemical-free, cotton tampons.
The LOLA box contains a wealth of information. Although I can’t imagine measuring in grams how much blood I need my tampons to absorb, it is nice to know that if you use regular Tampax, that should translate into wanting regular LOLA tampons too.
The wrappers of each tampon are color coded for easy identification.
The super absorbency tampons are contained in a dark blue wrapper, while the regular absorbency tampons are housed in a lighter, more grey-blue wrapper.
Each tampon arrives housed inside of a plastic applicator. I am terrible with these applicators. I can push with one hand until the click, but that never releases the tampon. I end up removing each tampon from its applicator and inserting it with my fingers, which is always messy.
Once in, the tampon worked fine, although it wasn’t as comfortable as some tampons I’ve used. In design, these tampons remind me of the Honest Company tampons, though these don’t use organic cotton.
While I liked that these tampons arrive at my doorstep in discreet packaging and while I like that they’re made out of cotton, I can’t help but wish they were made from organic cotton and included a different applicator.
