This seems like a seriously messy situation.
Last year, Tampax introduced the « Pocket Pearl, » a small tampon designed for girls on the go.
The company said last year that the new tampon was designed to help girls seamlessly incorporate their period into their busy lives.
« One in every two girls believes their period holds them back from certain activities, » the company said in a press release. « We know that any day can turn into an adventure for girls, and we want to make sure nothing stands in their way, especially their periods. »
But about a year after the product launched, some angry customers are giving the Pocket Pearl some seriously bad reviews.
As Cosmopolitan first reported, the tampons have just a 2-star review on Amazon. Many angry customers have written that the tampons are falling apart in their hands, while others have struggled to figure out the complex design.
