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 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?
