Lola Subscription Box Review + Coupon – March 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.


Lola is a new feminine hygiene subscription service that provides a monthly delivery of 100% cotton tampons in the absorbencies you request. Lola is also a women-owned business, which, in my book, adds a definite degree of confidence!


This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


The Subscription Box: Lola

The Cost: $10 for 1 box of 18, or $18 for 2 boxes

COUPON: First-time subscribers get their first 2 boxes for $9! This is automatic at check-out


The Products: 100% cotton tampons in the absorbencies you request (light, regular, or super in any combination)

Ships to: US only, free

Check out the Period Subscription Box Directory and make sure to add Lola to your subscription list or wishlist!

Good to know: You can adjust, skip, or cancel any time.


This is the information card that came with the package. The emphasis with Lola is that they provide tampons that are free from chemicals and synthetic fibers. This little snippet from their website really says it best:



Lola also included a little card about their referral program.


I like this quote! I ordered a box with 9 regular absorbency and 9 super. I like that you can mix and match absorbencies, and you can adjust your numbers at any time for future shipments.


Finally, these are the tampons themselves. The one on top is a super and the one below is regular. The applicator is BPA-free plastic.

Verdict: My package arrived at just the right time, so I was able to try the products out, and they worked just fine. The tampons were comfortable and effective. I think they raise a good point about keeping unknown additive materials out of tampons, and the price for their service is reasonable. I have to wonder, though, if the belief is that harmful additives may be harmful to the body, why aren’t these made from organic cotton? Otherwise I think this is a really convenient subscription for women who prefer natural products. And I love that it’s a women-owned business!

What do you think of Lola? Have you tried this type of subscription before?

  1. Has anyone use the pads? I just ordered some and was just wondering what others thought about it thank you !

  2. I really like everything about Lola, but I wish they had paper/biodegradable applicators. That’s keeping me from switching from my Amazon subscription.

    • You can select cardboard applicators as your option. You need to check their site out to see this as this is an old review from last year.

    • You can also choose to have non-applicator tampons! even more discrete.
      Also, they now use only organic cotton for those interested in that!

  3. Plastic applicators? Nope. Even the cardboard ones are biodegradable.

    Neat idea though to get your supplies in the mail every month.

  4. I’ve found these do not expand and so I leak like crazy. Still have some sitting in the cabinet unused because of this.

  5. I got my box in time as well. I got all super. My issue is that most of them fell apart while removing them. I actually cancelled my subscription.

  6. I got my box this week and was impressed with how cute the box/tampon packaging was, and I liked being able to customize the absorbency. I know it’s silly as a 30-year-old, but I hate buying tampons at the drugstore so getting sent them for a decent price is pretty awesome.

  7. This company has amazing customer service. They had sent me the wrong sizes, and when i e mailed them, they immediately sent me the correct ones with fast delivery. I feel i could definitely count on them.

  8. I totally agree with the organic cotton comment, and I personally don’t use tampons with plastic applicators– the thought of the millions of those things floating in the ocean or sitting in landfills makes me cringe….the applicator-free OB- style is the way to go- smaller and more discreet to carry as well.
