Here’s the info card that came with my box, explaining the Cora movement. I love that they are helping supply tampons to girls in need in other countries and such, too! That’s awesome.
The flip side of the card also describes the items in the box.
“Stowaway” Tampon Cases
These stowaway cases are designed to hold 1 tampon each and get tossed in your purse, and handed off to a friend. I can also see these being great to leave in a women’s bathroom with a little encouraging note or something.
Premium Organic Cotton Tampons, Regular – 18 count
Premium Organic Cotton Tampons, Super – 18 count
I received a 36-tampon bundle, half regular and half super.
A peek inside. I think the patterned packaging is stylish!
Little Black Tampon Clutch
This is the little black clutch you get in your first delivery, along with the little black box (below). It’s sturdy and very well made. The inside is lined, too! I’m a fan of this.
Little Black Storage Box
This is the other item you get with your first shipment, and it’s nicely made, too! It’s great to store the tampons in your bathroom – much prettier than the typical drawer ripped-open boxes and bags. I wish there were 2 compartments or something so I could know more easily which tampons were regular and which were super. They’re marked, but it’d be faster with a separation. I still like this, though.
Here’s a shot of what the actual tampons look like for you. They expand, which saves space and is the kind of tampons I personally prefer, so I’m happy!
The Verdict: I really appreciate Cora’s mission of modernizing tampons and also providing feminine care products to girls in need. I think the products are designed and packaged well and the storage case and box are well-made. My only complaint is that they’re pricier than running to the drugstore to grab some tampons, but I also know they’re made with organic cotton, which isn’t as cheap to produce, so I know that affects the price. It’s something I didn’t think about before – all the pesticides and such that get sprayed on cotton crops end up in my tampons! Definitely makes me think organic cotton tampons might be pretty important.
